    Sssshhhhh! Don't remind people that the MPMs are just as much "masterpieces" as the G1 MPs! They won't like that!

    Not truly fair, soonly one of them will be 20 years old and megatron was already pretty controversial in its release, the MPMs started in the time things such as Dinobot, Megatron (36), Optimus v3 already exist.

    I think your timeline is a little out of whack. Grimlock predates the MPMs, true, but he also doesn’t scale with the current MP offerings or match their aesthetic. MP36 was 2017 alongside Bumblebee and Optimus, but it was also several times more expensive than both of them. MP44 was just last year.

    Neither MP36 or 44 are being sold in Western markets, either, whereas the MPM line needs to be viable for stateside release. I mean, let’s not forget the MPM line started with redecoes of ROTF figures. Ratchet is certainly classed above those.

    EDIT: Oops, somehow read Dinobot as Grimlock. My bad, ignore that bit, though that’s another case for “you’re comparing something that costs almost twice as much and was every bit as hotly debated over whether it was truly worthy of being called a Masterpiece.”

    Now, I truly do like the color green, in many various shades. However, that DOTM green Ratchet is wearing is nausea worthy. Blech! :yuck 

    Now, I'd buy a red and white version of this guy in a spark beat.

    I know they're old figures, It's just that the person I replied to said "I guess we're thrown the word "Masterpiece" in front of anything these days!", I know it was a joke but from their words I assume that they saying that nowadays HasTak calls any figure Masterpiece even if they're seemingly lazy figures. I was mainly trying to make a clever retort since Masterpiece transformers since the very beginning have always had their rough figures released

    Us guys all think he's a hero and he will accept that responsibility.

    Back on topic. This looks like a $30 voyager from studio series.

    I think these are how the final colors are gonna be, no paint mismatch, the paint is way better, lot more silver in these Target Promo pics, if only it wasn't mistransformed, Detail looks great too!

    Comparison with CGI render. The MPM held its wheel too high up. If the designers found a way to add a rotating section to put the wheel closer to the hips he'd look more accurate but I disgress. A small sacrifice for having the cleanest backpack so far.

    He is. The sizes in this photoshop are pretty off. MPM4 isn't that tall either.

    Does anyone have a side-by-side comparison with the cgi render as well as a gif/screenshot of when he used his missiles?

    Would be nice if the car had a nice metallic paint to it but other than that bod mode looks great
