And preordered at TCP!
same here...had $10 off...so why not.
Man, this is looking like a sweet release. I haven't gotten any of the + versions yet, but I think I'll check out 20+ and this. Still not sure if I'm going to keep my PO of Wheeljack+, but this one looks like a winner. I think the painted blue window bits on the feet look way better than they did on 17+.
Love seeing the love for MP-18+, especially at a price people are loving!
Here's the custom I made back in 2014 (!) using MP-18 and MP-18S and a little bit of silver paint. Glad I can finally stop posting this, now that we're getting the real deal - just bear with me one more time
Ok, I might post them one more time when I do some pose matching in July
Up at Kapow for £65
Transformers Masterpiece MP-18+ Anime Streak (Bluestreak) - Featured Items - Kapow Toys
I do wonder if the final copy will be as matte.
just patiently waiting for tfs express, wait wasn't bluestreak apart of that chair that megatron made from the autobots?
Yours is actually better. But what do I know. *shrugs*
@Sam I'll never get tired of seeing you're custom! If that's what we'd gotten the first time around, though, we might not be getting this + release! Btw, love that you know how to pose the Datsuns. I can't be the only one who gets a little annoyed seeing pictures of these guys where their arms are bent at the wrong joint (at the transform joint below the shoulder instead of the elbows). They look broken that way to me.
@jackisking I'm sure he'll have enough gloss to the finish, just like Prowl+. Seems like he's got a pretty good sheen going on in these photos if you look at the highlights close enough.
That's about what I'm thinking, don't think his face will look that bad in hand either. Don't know if its a good thing or bad thing but most TT Promo shots aren't very flattering.
Agreed. And I'd rather they look better in-hand than in the photos than the other way around
Just placed my order.
This one is going to cost me almost three times as much as what I paid for the original.
Thank you man! I'm glad we got two different releases, the original MP-18 is a great deco for people who love real world accuracy, while 18+ is perfect for us toon nuts, plus we get the extra faces and accessories that we're happy to pay for! Seems like everyone should be happy, right?
Agreed on the elbows, even TT did a pose using the 'wrong' joint in the 18+ photoshoot:
Ordered and paid for two MP-18+s from Kapow Toys tonight. Price per unit was exactly the same as ordering from TTMall, but this saves the hassle and expense of shipping from Japan and using Tenso.
Wanna be able to use two lightning bolt effects of equal length in his shoulder launchers, and sometimes give one blast effect to Prowl or whoever else's gun it might be compatible with!
Those Tamashii bolt effects were actually on my to-buy list to use with Bluestreak to recreate this exact thing
So glad Takara finally saved me the trouble
I wish TT did an effects set which included all sorts of blast and explosion effects. Would look nice on display.
And reissue the stands, but make the peg on it more durable. I was too late to grab some myself, but I heard various people complain about those pegs breaking off, so a slight upgrade in the design is welcome I think.
Figures. I bought an MP Bluestreak a couple months ago. But the face on the new one really just doesn’t seem right. The colors on the + are better, but i think the original face is better.
If I didn’t already have Bluestreak, I’d probably be down for this. As it stands, I’ll probably focus on characters I don’t already own.
im super into the idea of more MP+ Figures. Easy retools and recolors so everyone gets the exact masterpiece figure they want! At MP pricepoint its nice that everyone gets to feel they get a figure custom tailored to them
Up on Toy Dojo now too:
Any improvements in articulation in anyone's opinion?
Just so it’s said: Silverstreak is 100% Diaclone too. But it’s a rarity that most don’t know about.
Maz the Great Diaclone encyclopedia himself taught me. Silverstreak was released by GiG as a Diaclone in Italy.
So if you’re collecting Diaclone repaints and don’t have a Silverstreak.... you better get on that lol
