    I have a picture request:

    1) MP Lambo
    2) Alternity anyone
    3) CHUG Lambo

    If someone has them, could they take a picture of them next to each oher so that I can see for myself their scale?

    You'd get a better response if you put the request in the title of the thread.

    I'd help, but I only have one of the three.

    You didn't specify which mode, so... I gave you both.

    Yeah, I was concerned about the robot mode. But now I'm glad you did both.

    Holy crap! I knew the MP's were smaller, but... \And for that matter, it's good to see an Alternity rigt there as well.

    GREATLY appreciated. Thank you.

    Masterpiece
    Lambor, Alert, and MP-10 Prime have established a new 1:30 scale for the line, very similar to Alternity's 1:32 scale. However, Alternity figures feature die-cast construction and rubber tires, something the new MPs are lacking. In terms of value, I'd say Alternity is the clear winner.

    However, as a child of the '80s, Masterpiece Transformers are the toys I've been waiting 30 years to have. Alternity are just smaller Binaltech figures with improved engineering (but inferior character choices).

    More than a deluxe, but less than a Voyager. I'm actually very pleased with the scale, as it works better with most third-party offerings of late:

    And in alt. mode, MP Sideswipe fits in with deluxe vehicles from multiple lines.

    Older MPs like Rodimus are closer to Binaltech/Alternators scale, however.

    Minor point, but MP-10 is in fact 1:35. MP-01 was, believe it or not, 1:30.

    Thank you so very much for your post. I learned more here and in your photos than any number of topics I've seen.

    But holy crap!

    I think if I hit the point to drop that kind of cash, my choice would be Alternity- even tho I fully understand why you go MP's.
