    Those Cons are legends scale, right? Wonder how dedicated will MS be to push other masterpieces...

    I'd like to see them make a Jazz - not ready to pull the trigger on Downbeat. We also need a Perceptor since Tesla is no longer readily available. Plenty of ways they could go if they pursue MP.

    As their legends Trailbreaker is the absolute best legends of all time in terms of looks, and fun interesting transformation, i would like them to do MP Trailbreaker... but Mirage would be ok too as it is a character i have been wanting.

    I think the only Mirage atm is one from the MMC. Hound is also a great character I would like to see.

    The Hound market is pretty crowded though. There is a FT one and another one. Plus the official MP Hound has been teased and it looks good.

    Honestly tho, I'll buy any Triple Changer Magic Square comes out with. Except Springer. I'm sick and tired of Springer.

    Only triple changer besides Springer I want is Blitzwing (don't care much for the others). Frankly not happy with any of the current Blitzwings.

    I asked this in another topic but I want to get maximum advice.

    Actually, which one would you prefer getting? This one? Or the TE? Or maybe wait for the MP44? Pros and cons? Thank you

    So far I feel the pros and cons of TE and MS are equal and cancel each other out. TE has less articulation but better matrix chamber. MS has better transformation but less attractive trukbutt. I’m getting both since they offer different things and both come from trusted designers. My guts and hunches tell me MS will be more fun to transform but we’ll see.

    44 is really all cons to me, which is deliciously ironic considering he’s the leader of the Autobots. I didn’t like what I saw from the very first proto reveal and nothing I’ve seen has changed my mind. It looks like a mess to me, an exercise in unnecessary engineering indulgence that mostly results in panels and seams and lines everywhere. And even with all of that they still had to stash a bunch of his parts in a backpack. Personally I find it to be the prime example of how to NOT do a transformation. The accessories aren’t anything I want, the trailer isn’t anything I want. A lot of people are banking on it so I hope it’s satisfying for them.

    Mine came in. It's great...only minor nitpick is the fingers on one hand are a bit loose. Very impressed overall...well built, transformation is good, engineering is good, articulation is great, it looks great...what a figure.

    Will post up some more over the weekend, had some fun with him already:

    Finally found a use for the crotch thrust...And if you're not down with that, I've got two words for you:
