    Yep, the only outlier were Raiden (but it was a no-brainer, seen how H0 scaled trains sells in Japan) and Ultra-Magnus, for the transport gimmik. All the two exception were pointed with a valid justification.

    But Ginrai is not scaled in alt -mode

    What's the difference between OVA and S2 Defensor?

    It’s amazing how much bigger Magnus became because of that.

    I often see him as big, but the MP? It actually is so big I’ve not gotten him as I don’t know where I would put that beast.

    According to the chart, he isn't even 50 cm taller than Prime, and according to the classic transformation, his alt mode should have been way smaller than MP-44 scale one

    The individual trainbots actually do not entirely follow the HO scale. The Shinkansen sticks to HO scale which is 1/87. Scale for the others is 1/87 as well. However, according to the HO scale, the narrow-gauged train should be 1/80 as a compromise to the wider unified gauge. Even train model of Tomix used 1/80 in there narrow-gauged train model. Well, Ono might think he is really smart to fix this problem.:D

    I wasn’t sure the exact dimensions as I always view Magnus as Prime with basically football gear on lol, so the MP throws me for a loop anytime I see it.

    Ginrai is " animation-accurate" when its obvious some of his design aspects are based not on the toon but the toy. Not a biggie to me the differences, but a case of them not sticking to what they normally do with MPs. Defensor is not really a presence in his sunbow appearances unlike say Devastator and may be one of the instances where they feel free to bend the rules.

    This is very true, they went away with this decision only because trainbots are for static collection (with current transformation we only could had a slightly bigger robot, nothing more :(  )

    I was looking at old order notes I had from 2014 and 2015. We averaged at least one MP per month each year. :eek:

    Controversial Opinion but I'm fine with that not being the case anymore.

    If it was, I'd've probably burned out of MP by now as that much with these prices would not make for a good time.

    I wish that pace would pick up again. I don't know how many MP collectors are completionists but between G1, BW, and the movies that's an average of 4 MP's per genre. Assuming they don't add anymore of course.

    Oh, I agree. I like that they are a bit more spaced out. All I really need are my three MP grails: Jazz, CJ, and Mirage.
    Everyone else is just icing on the cake.

    There are the Combiner characters, which started the MPG rename of all MP lines :)

    Ultra Magnus is such a big fan favorite… I really wish they’d do a 3.0 for him so that he can fit better on a shelf with the others.

    It depends how they do it.

    Is it armored? If so I’m in for.

    All in one? I’ll pass like I did mp 22.

    Always down for armored Magnus... gets us closer to a real Powered Convoy.

    I keep thinking we"ll get a inner robot Magnus, that gives us a true mp toy Prime and Delta Magnus, but that only looks to make sense to me and not Takara, because they could probably sell the h#ll out of it.

    Maybe the Adamas line, I could see them taking another stab at the movie Primes, because Prime sells, especially ones done up real nice with paint and diecast and they have some stuff to redeem there.


    Anhoo, couple of more days till the new Generation. Dont think they'll be many surprises, but as much as it looks like he wants to do Metalhawk, that Omega Supreme nod, may be something he actually wants to do but hasnt convinced the higher ups yet.

    I’d definitely be down for an armored Magnus. Especially since that would keep his proportions closer to his actual toon aesthetic.
