    Everytime I see new pics I can hear Ratchet say "the boy's pheromone levels suggests he wants to mate with the MPM"

    yes, happy they both exist. don't get me wrong, I prefer that they transform but it is so hard to get the movie designs right so with movie characters, I let it slide. bonus if they do transform but they still have to look good.

    G1 stuff is another matter. Must transform.

    I'm done. :)

    That's one reason, and it's based on the takara price, which is not what most of us will be paying for it, so it's sort of one VERY shaky reason.
    This whole obsession with the "masterpiece" name. You are holding it to the standard of literal perfection? Wait, it has to be TWO perfect things? You're living in a dream dude.

    Gotta throw my pennies in too:

    It looks pretty much fine except for the bars behind the head and rthe weird shoulders.

    If the design isn\'t accurate, that means it isn\'t done, so don\'t release it yet. 

    Added parts counts to inflate the price < Lesser parts count with a more accurate figure.

    Wrong is worse than bad. Bad can at least be funny, this is just frustrating.

    Are there differences between the Target one and the Japanese one?

    I'm not a huge fan of his design. His vehicle mode has a lot of robot junk hanging from the bottom; not a good example of the term "masterpiece". In fact, most of the movie masterpieces have been either weirdly designed like Ironhide or rushed like Optimus prime. (getting mpm-4 to seal into vehicle mode is a nightmare because his parts wern't correctly measured; which is why if you do manage to transform him to truck mode, he looks a little deformed) :(  Barricade is probably the best of the MPMS :)

    I just got MPM-03 Bumblebee. That one is great. Barricade and Jazz are on the way so I look forward to playing around with those. Bumblebee is my favorite so far. Excellent in both modes and the transformation is not overly complicated. I haven't transformed Prime yet but he looks majestic in robot mode. Megatron was a lot of fun too.

    So far, I think the MPM line is the most fun MP line to transform and play around with. The BW ones look amazing but feel very fragile. The first wave of G1 MPs were similarly fun. The newer G1 figures seem much more fiddly (like Hound and Sunstreaker).

    I am looking forward to MPM Ratchet and Starscream.

    Too much kibble hanging under the alt mode and too expensive in Japan.  I might pay the US price but as I\'m in Japan, I\'ll wait for some nice Chinese people to have a ganders and see what they come up with.

    Agreed, but it doesn't bother me since I don't buy MP figures. Studio Series is good enough for me and my budget.

    Yah, Bee is DAMNED good. Except for the electric neon lemon yellow they used he is pretty much as MP as a movie figure can be.

    These things should take time, and feel special and exclusive. Lately, every MP feels rushed and just like a nonevent.

    There are lots of preorders for MPM-10 including surprisingly expensive North American retailers and cheaper Amazon Japan for the Takara version.

    Unless you're talking about Target? We don't have Target in Canada so I don't know what's going on there.

    Ratchet will get cheaper on Amazon Japan. The price usually drops with time. Right now he's more expensive than Starscream which makes no sense. It will drop for sure. But what is really strange is that the MSRP price for Ratchet and Starscream are both listed as 22,000 Yen which is bizarre. I believe Ratchet should be 20,000 Yen. FYI when you add Amazon Japan items to your cart the price will drop because in Japan they include 10% sales tax in their prices which foreigners do not pay.

    I don't know, I don't consider the price to be that bad, considering Ironhide was $99 on release. Just because it's released at that price doesn't mean you have to buy it at that price. The other MPs came down to more reasonable prices around the holidays and such.

    I don't think he has any less detail than any of the other MPMs either. Diff'rent strokes and whatnot, I guess.

    Still happy to finally clear up the 07' Autobots. These pictures suck of course. I anticipate the in hand pictures of some board members crack at the transformation.

    Now all we need is the Triple Bs and Frenzy and 07' will be done.

    I love that! I'm gonna call them that now. Or maybe the "B Team" or "B Boys"?
