    Definitely.. At home I think I'll be 100% move from Takara scale MP bots to Newage scale MP bots, but keep MP combiners and some super loved Takara scale MPs.
    I'll either sell all the Takara scale MPs or set up some display cases at my work and keep them there. Newage have totally changed the game in my opinion- I love that if you like both versions of the character its ok to just buy both- and still not overpower a room with robots. And their mini boxes are so good.. they could even be displayed on them as a landscape of cool boxes! Etc.. ok I'll calm down about Newage MPs now.. haha

    I do love getting new toys in the post...
    What a figure - great use of the Galvatron mold IMO. Will hopefully find some time to mess around with him later...

    Although I can't remember the last time I actually transformed any of my figures when I got them... they just tended to do on display!!

    And the box art for this is just fantastic.

    (Please ignore the messy desk... in the process of re-decorating the office!!)

    This thing is amazing... I may have to start buying more New Age figures if this is what they're like.
    The transformation is absurdly complicated for something so tiny, but the articulation is astounding, and the deco is so pretty I keep lamenting that I don't have enough light around my desk to see all the detail in the full of his tiny glory. I'm definitely going to need a tiny Blaster to go with this guy now.

    I'd recommend trying to track down Magic Square's Blaster.

    Its an amazing figure... Newage are doing some great work and its looking like we may get more Marvel comic representations of characters..
    The G1 cartoon was a piece of crap.. barely any character development involved, but the comics.. wow.. all the characters had depth.. the storylines were so much more intricate.. its great to get Straxus!

    We need Newage Scrounge to go with Straxus! But I don't know if they will be able to get his arm right. It's a special arm - there is no other like it.

    I had The Smelting Pool as a kid, my parents kept all of my transformers comics. Your post made me realize my connection with TF is primarily the 86 movie and the comics.

    I grew up with the UK comics and toys, and didn't see the cartoon until years later. (It's why I've been a bit bewildered in the MP Skids thread. Skids is great! He got a fair bit of comic time.)

    Its all about that UK comic... soooooo good. Really amazing- in fact this thread makes we want to download a torrent of the entire UK comics run. Finally a reason to own an iPad ahah

    Probably the best you can get.

    I did see the cartoon and liked some episodes (MTMTE, Ultimate Doom), but I kept coming back to the Marvel comics, reading them again and again. After my cat completely shredded issue 3 and 4 (they were bundled locally), I used tape to restore them and read it anew.

    Recently I participated in the re-reading of the US run in the comics part of the forum. Was very enlightening. So many things I had missed in past and interesting points of views from others.

    I wonder how Hasbro's Straxus will compare.
    Considering their base mold looks a little more beefy than Newage's he'll probably do that cover of a huge Straxus attacking Blaster justice.

    Hasbro is doing a Straxus? Haven't seen anything about that in the news forum.

    I posted this in another thread, but what a toy!

    Hands down one of the best retools I've seen in years. Now I just need to take his head off and find a bubble to pop it in to recreate the Marvel UK stories!

    You haven't? :D 
    The news might have been hard to find after the usual guys in the "Hey kids! Alcoholism is cool!" thread went hysterical because someone dared to present leaks that another guy presented before him, mods closed the thread, the guy started a new one, same guys went there to pick fights with him, thread got closed too, and another guy started a new leak thread.
