I mean it’d be cool. Unless that sound pack also has a light or converts sound into light energy.
3rd party accessories/ part makers are going to make loads of dough!
Somehow the focus is on toon accuracy and yet Takara cant work out a simple light up feature??! Man that's dissapointing. Bleh. :/
@Gamerlingual : was there a light up matrix feature you know and heard about when you covered Tokyo Toy Show last week? Thanks!
I dunno. Given all the shit they’ve gone through it’s understandable.
Considering the engineering, I don't blame them for missing it. With all these parts moving to transform the chest, I honestly don't see how they could fit in a battery compartment or wiring from the backpack into the matrix chamber to light it up. MP-01 could do it because he was a bigger figure and had more space in the chest cavity.
Unless we're going for the SF-M01 route where they actually put the LED in the matrix itself. Though my guess for why they didn't do that either is because the matrix is tiny or they didn't want to compromise it with some screw holes. Probably has to do with the production side as well since MP-44 is already a complicated figure. Putting together tiny electronics into such a small thing is too problematic because they could easily be lost or time consuming?
We'll never know. But yeah, cash money for 3Ps who do add-ons/upgrade kits for TT products! I'd actually buy one if it's good. I'd likely have Hotrod holding the Matrix, doing his transformation (to Rodimus) pose! It'd be a nice callback to MP-01 and the movie. A missed opportunity to be sure, but a very minor one since batteries don't last forever.
Maybe the compexity of MP44's transforrming parts meant that Takara had no optiin to incorporate additional features. Light up parts surprisingly make a figure more costly..
I think soundboards cost more. Especially if you have 30 of them. Which is why BW Megatron costed so much.
So all the toy budget went to the electronics..lol?
Certainly not the waist slider! Aye!

Mmm. That angled shot.
It's all about how the angle and shadow of his brow creates the exact same look as in the movie
Yes! This sculpt nails this moment, as well as "Megatron must be stopped", not to mention the battle damage for later scenes, all of which are what play through my head when I think of Optimus Prime.
Only 73 days left!
Yeah, they totally nailed it. Tempting...
It's funny how the correct angle taken of an image we've all seen hundreds of times the past week can be so breathtaking. I literally jumped out of my chair when I scrolled down to that Prime pic. SO DAMN GORGEOUS!!!!!
