Look, the price is shit. Just bullshit.
But this shit looks great. Y'know, ignoring the backpack.
So that makes $800.....
Even though the Humans are Faceless Synthoids, I still love them.
For those Not in the know:
Synthoids are lifeless programmable clones created by COBRA in the GI JOE: A Real American Hero Cartoon and also featured in 1 episode (Only Human) of the original Transformers Cartoon
My Honda handles better than my Jaguar but is 3x cheaper. Should Honda raise their price despite their appearance not showing their ‘handling’?
His feet to his ankles looks like he's standing on his tippie toes.
Looks nice but NOT for that price.
I’ll be fine with US MP-10.
I thought your joke was that the US release would include everything except the figure and trailer.
I actually found Sunstreaker looked pretty damn good while needed to adjust the eyes a little. The chrome on him looked damn good in pictures and having the option of changing the car mode was a unique idea. Aside from a trailer part serving as a flight stand, nothing here stood out as much as Sunstreaker did And Sunstreaker I bought for $79. Better suited for the price, expectations met. This guy? Not so much.
Nice reveal! So bought
Not really sure your analogy is on target there, considering the point is how dense Sunstreaker, and likely Prime, is with mechanics and features over their comparatively sized brethren. I think you just latched onto the word "handling".
We'll agree to disagree. Ignoring the none g1 stuff there's only 2 releases between before Ironhide and after Hasui left. Magnus couldn't be more Sunbow aesthetic if he tried. He even has the red bumper. Tracks has the grey coloured limbs with white instead of silver, a yellow square on his chest and a cartoon human accessory he's a + before they were even a thing. It's clear they've been going G1 cartoon since Kobayashi took over with MP22. Now were at MP44 that's not recent thing lol
Maybe high priced collectors items are bullshit.
I think the backpack comes off. I had heard that it was a voicebox, with Prime sayings in it. Not sure if anyone else can confirm that or not.
All the engineering won’t matter if the QC is garbage. If the figure doesn’t have any problems, then that’s where the value will go to.
well if anything... A-E is consistent. So you should expect a 35k Yen price.. and expensive shipping So likely $309 + shipping.. maybe $40ish since it will be EMS and quite large.
Die cast chest , crotch thighs fuel tanks and feet
The jet pack comes off the backpack is made up of the pieces for the front of the truck cab. It doesn't detach.
That backpack is giving me flashbacks to MP Hot Rod's reveal. Not a good look, especially compared to his two predecessors.
That's where the fandom sees the value anyways, because of course they want their $400 toy to come to them pristine and perfect.
But the reality is that the $400 tag is in service of the engineering and build, and QC is simply what it is.
yeah the rocket pack clips over the voicebox
