    Yep, many people focus on scale or wanting as much plastic as possible for their money, but almost every OSKO I've bought hasn't actually been that fun to play with and handle. Plus half of them can't even hold up their own limbs or weapons, or they make ungodly loud ratcheting noises every time you move a joint. I actually think the official MPMs are a really great mixture of large and also still fun.

    additionally I do believe that HasTak's scale is more or less correct for MPM, the only real discrepancy occurs when it comes to height. I think in their eyes, they are translating the inches height difference of the robots from the scale charts into increments too small. And that's probably where most of the robot scale disagreement stems from

    Mine hasn’t yet, and I can’t tell if I’m lucky with my release or about to get a rude awakening.

    Mine is in perfect shape. Though its out of direct sunlight. Maybe thats got something to do with it. But to this day I prefer the weiijang os over the mpm blackout. Yes it has partsforming but it is more screenaccurate Imo

    Couldn't remember if it was posted somewhere in this thread already (probably), but vid shows the wrists can turn. Very nice.

    highlights of reviewer's feedback:

    • satisfaction with tank mode turret mobility/range
    • tank mode looks accurate from any angle
    • those 4 small wheels that help it roll are not hindered
    • if you were happy with the standards that MPM Bonecrusher brought to the line, MPM Brawl will not disappoint (reviewer says you can keep your thumb raised)
    • when you transform the toy, you'll get the feeling that this is how he should've transformed in the movie, especially his upper half
    • more or less all the tabs/connections don't require extra finesse to align (reviewer phrased it as it literally sits there waiting for you, it goes into its designated spot flawlessly). no weak points or tabs that come undone when finished
    • his backpack folds/conceals perfectly; they are really enjoying the figure at the step that has that panel plug into the side of his leg
    • in bot mode: "looks too good". everything looks correct to them
    • you can rotate the wrists and use arm bend to achieve a more natural pose
    • they give this figure a perfect score

    That's real great and all but like where are the preorders? You would think they would be up by now but nothing

    Probably because all that we're seeing is eastern/asia market stuff rather than it being revealed fully by Hasbro officially.
    I too am really wanting to get my pre-order in with my local market so I know I've locked him down but probs have to wait for an official reveal in another Pulse stream or something unfortunately.

    You're probably right. Hasbro will probably due a major marketing thing or something for mpm brawl next month then put up preorders about a week later or maybe a few days even. So I'm guessing mid to late June-ish. Then it will be released in August or something

    man this collector has all their representations of the Decepticons in Masterpiece form using only official figures. Somewhere in that pattern is some commendable dedication and something I can't even personally envision doing
