    Outstanding articulation. Looks good from the front. Looks hideous from the side and back. Way too many little panels and screws. The transformation seems to be too complicated for a Masterpiece that's known for fun transformation.

    That backpack is hideous. Waiting for mine to arrive but this looks like a fumble by Takara. TE looks better in many ways.

    Yup. Proof in the pie is the eating. Once you hold both side by side that is, we can finally give a more accurate take on him.

    The only thing that's real are the shoulders and some small parts of the top of the chest, everything else are faux parts.

    As of now this thread has way to many people going on and on about MP-44 is not worth 300+ bucks. Well to each their own.. one mans junk is another mans treasure. I am sure I paid more then some here at 450. Yet people are going on and on about the 3** range. If anything consider yourself lucky you got it or could get it that cheep. ;)  As for the others If you don't wanna buy him and you think it's to much. Why don't you just go fly a kite. Must you incinsist on posting over, and over, and over. You don't want MP-44, okay that's fine we get it. We got it the first 20 times, message loud and clear. Moving on!

    it doesn't bother me to be honest but then I had no issue with Ultra Magnus and his butt flap. just out of interest do people that is like the back pack also dislike the butt flap

    It would be nuts if every surface on this thing is painted save for the hands

    So I was searching up MP-44 videos and dunno if this got posted, but someone put up a video of the voicebox clips.

    There's Peter Cullen audio in there!

    I KNOW. Did not expect that at all.

    I'm curious what the lines are originally from though. As that's GOT to be banked Cullen audio Hasbro already had on file; the lines are all standard Optimus Prime lines and I feel like I've heard that specific delivery before.
