I should have seen that coming! Er... maybe later.
So what you are saying is, everyone should post a different version until we have discovered them all.
Seems like we would need a means of categorizing this to limit doubles.
Still, at the risk of sounding ungrateful or spoiled, I kind of wish that...
for the cartoon fans there was an extra cassette door frame in yellow, and that for those who like the toy elements (myself) that the toy head was smaller, because especially the toy head looks huge on his body.
But the key thing that is the difference with the whole toy vs toon... SILVER PAINT instead of crappy white. Can't change that. They should have just done 2 versions with the proper paint for each and no customization parts.
I mean it's pearly metallic white so it's not that bad, but I agree it would've been better in silver. But I wouldn't need two versions - I'd want toy and toon to be silver because the cartoon was colored silver - it just looked white because of the simplicity of the artwork.
I will say, it is neat that they included the toy version pieces with the base figure so you can choose either or, rather than releasing a + toy version down the line like with Takara and MP-36 Megatron, and does actually make this release more tempting for me since I prefer toy versions rather than toon.
That's one thing (at least) where 3rd party has TT beat. If TT had included the toy head/shins with their Sunstreaker I might've kept it. But I don't care for buying two versions and mixing to get one that I want. Nor do I care to buy a much more expensive possible toy version later.
Are you volunteering to do the categorising? You know what? I think a binary system based on my numbered list works.
Yes, I see your point. I'm glad they didn't becuase I like the white (it's not crappy, it's pearly) and I like having the toy detailing on his upper shins and shoulders. Which makes mine a type 01000100. Don't confuse it with the song by Clutch.
TT can store 3 cassettes.
1 up for TT.
My soundwave came yesterday feels great but shoulder tabs were pretty tight had some difficulty tabbing them in other then that looks and feels amazing
Yes please! Let us know when they are ready to buy. I’ll take a set.
Yes, I often buy figures at a premium price to shove them away and never see them.
Still haven't even opened mine... Once I saw reviews, it was already too late. Now just not all that enthusiastic about it. Gonna sell it as soon as stock drys up. Right now I just can't compete with retailers that have free shipping... Or china retailers undercutting everyone else.
May I ask why you lost your enthusiasm? Every review I have watched has been pretty positive
Silicone lube and tab the shoulders in the way they were designed and it's much easier, hook the front side in with shoulder rocked at a forward angle then press in while rocking back. Untab in reverse.
Not saying that it isn't good... By all accounts it is. But I look at my collection and I focus mostly on the original MP "scale model" aesthetic. Once I saw that the silver was indeed white, I just lost interest. I didn't think it would bother me, but every time I reach for the box to open it, I'm like, "nope. I'm selling it. MP-13 looks better"... That white is supposed to be silver and the blue is supposed to be darker. If it were, I'd probably keep it. Ultimatly, I kinda bought it by mistake in the first place. I Pretty much preorder anything FT through my regular source and decide later if I want it or not. I don't have to pay up front or a deposit and there is no penalty for canceling before arrival... But, if you cancel after arrival, you can get banned. Anyway, they are usually very late receiving FT stuff so I waited for a video review. I was watching... It was either TMReviews or Paik4life live stream when it first started showing up and was like... Damnit. I need to cancel this. I grabbed my mobile device mid live stream and logged in to cancel my order and damnit all if they hadn't gotten it in stock and billed me... So... an hour or even minuets too late to cancel. So I paid the bill instead of getting banned and it has been just sitting there un opened since it arrived at my door. At this point, I just want to break even... and that means waiting till retail is out of stock. So... he sits.... waiting
It makes me so happy to know there are people who know what this is.
But, but, THAT'S HIS THING!
Those that bought the original didn't have that mentality now did they?
