    It’d appear so. He’s probably got the most discussion out of any MP.

    Think of it instead as a sweet reminder at the end of summer of another lovely season run past.
    Remember how much you'd treasure summer as a child...? I think I'd happily have given any of my toys for more summer back then.
    But I hear ya, these days its hard to ignore the hype machines. I feel like my norm with consuming pop culture is to live in a perpetual state of anticipation.

    Deep thoughts. I guess we just gotta like more things at once and not get absorbed on, although great, thing. Cause a lot of things in life are great. I mean I’m living in dry as heck winter but I’m going out to look at stuff and be active, and there’s a bunch of sick figures out now I can buy when I get to it. Lots of things in this world. Try and see as much as you can.

    For me mp-44 through mp-48 are bought. Been saving for a bit. In the meantime there are always great things to occupy one's time.

    Of course I'd never want time to speed up, but the older I get, the faster it goes. Waiting for MP-44 feels like forever and has allowed me to be so excited about something, time has literally grinded to a halt while I wait for his release.

    I finally caved and pre-ordered it. I'm anxious it's the most I've ever spent on an MP, and will probably be the last purchase of the year. Shame too because there are a ton of figures I'm interested in. Oh well, I'm just really hoping he's worth it and the QC is next level.

    I really think this figure will be on another level. First the price can let us think there has been some fine work going in. The pictures show nothing but epicness and the engineering shown in is impressive. Also, it’s the latest MP, so 43 other figures before it have experienced the manufacturing and the technology on it. It can be nothing but amazing.

    What’s this from, Sam?

    Edit: never mind, it’s Siege Omega Supreme, right?

    If there is gonna be a QC problem, it’ll be small and probably fixable. The amount of time put into this figure and all that has been learnt with each recent figure will surely result in a great product.
    Looks great. Have they tried doing the Secret of Omega Supreme scene yet?

    Hmm... debating if I should cancel my preorders on this or not and wait for the price to drop down elsewhere or not. Work is fine and things are fine. But there comes a question, when do you just have too many? Thoughts?

    I'm trimming my collection because I have a lot that I barely even look at. My instant regret buys will be moved on. But no... this is still an instant buy.

    You can always just get 1, if the mold appeals to you. Didn't you have like 3 on preorder?
