    Mine's somewhere in Pennsylvania in route to Austin. Funny to think there's some 20 minutes from at the TD store.

    How does he look with MP-36? I'm close to pulling the trigger but I'm worried he'll make Megatron look wimpy in comparison, due to how bulky he is.

    Wow, was the fan in the back intended, since you said "blown away", or just a coincidence?

    I just want to see a picture of it in two distinct poses before I spring to buy it. Can it do the “NEVER!!” Uppercut from a kneeling position and can it do the iconic in the air blaster pointing down pose that we have seen MP44 in? If it can do those two poses I can save $250.

    Coincidence. But if anyone else asks I’m taking credit. Puns are the best.

    Got this in today, and had a tough time putting him down.
    Can't wait for the White Magnus repaint.
    If MS can keep MP releases solid like MS-01, they will be by new go to for MP scale TF's.

    Also just canceled MP-44.

    I really hope Toyjax/Reprolabels does cell shaded windows for this guy like they did for Hasbro/Takara MP Prime.

    Definitely think it'll happen, given how popular the MP-10's were.

    I am blown away by the look of this. I could have gone for the gloss paint finish but this matte finish with the look and feel is so wonderful. There is how he looks in pictures and how he looks in hand. People complain about the bulky appearance but in hand he is just the perfect proportion with an incredible presence. I bought MP-1 and never bought MP-10 but if I was buying it again for the first time this is what I would want. The articulation is amazing.

    Can one of the proud owners confirm if the mouthplate center is level or does it have the slight point up or down in the center?

    Lol, well if this figure had come out before we heard about MP-44 I would definitely have replaced my MP-10 with it as it looks great, very clean bot mode (dare I say cleaner than TT's)... As it is, I can't justify getting two more MP Primes!! Impressive though.

    They do indeed. Despotron's chunky design complemented MP-10's bulky look (MP-10 and MP-36 don't look that good together). Since the MS is basically MP-10 done right today, it should be no wonder that it goes with Despotron's as peanut butter with jelly.

    Absolutely this; in hand at your eyes natural resolution and focus the missgivings picked up from detailed photos aren't noticable even the matrix chamber.
