    I would!

    ... If I haven't bought 4 or 5 trucks before hand. And only if regular size.

    True, but there’s also quite a few people who aren’t willing to pay that price for MP-44 either. But yeah, it’s kinda sad the MPMs don’t seem to get equal attention.

    I still think MPM Prime could’ve been so much better if they ignored the matrix gimmick, or just redesigned the figure from the ground up instead of taking ROTF leader class cues like @sadsfas said

    Have any of you heard/read about any info on when the next batch for ShowZstore might arrive? Supposedly it's expected this month, but I read that in August.

    Like I said, cab legs for prime. And also a wrist tilt to allow him to hold his swords at an angle. And I'd also like to see a deep ab crunch on a new prime.

    Hey, how does this guy look next to Black Mamba and Dream Factory's ROTF Megatron? Been wondering how they look with this guy.

    Here are some pictures and a review for a few pages back. I believe Ben also has a review out where he compares both Megatrons to Prime.

    So my order on eBay never came because seller ran out of stock. Is there more stock coming or did I miss the boat?

    I can't find him in stock on any site. One of my most anticipated releases this year and I thought I'd have him right before MPM Megs....

    Sadly, you're not late. Weijiang has slowed this release down to a trickle (if that). Many of us have long-standing preorders that etailers are having a hard time filling.

    I hate to say it but I think WJ is packing it up their toys and going home. I am highly skeptical there will actually be a "2nd run."

    Think the ones out there are going to be it.

    Nahhhhh they are just waiting it out and letting the dust settle. Remember they already rebranded. They are just WJ now, Black Apple is the brand name.

    I thought they rebranded as Honey Badger? Or am I incorrect?

    They rebranded as WJ Toys just prior to the release of Thunder Leader, Honey Badger may be another possible subsidiary but there was no
    "formal" connection stated between Honey Badger and any other 3P.

    Have to dig out Dream factory's, but I'm 98% sure this guy is a bit taller than Dream Factory Megs.

    I'll do a wide shot or full height shot tomorrow unless someone beats me to it. It'll be late tomorrow, about 24 hours from this reply :D
