    No, this guy sells legit items. He's the one that usually sells test piece MPs before official release without boxes. I've seen him sell MP-21 3 months ago.

    Lots of cool stuff here. I would love MP Galvatron, Scourge and Cyclonus to be produced at some point.

    Yeah, the interior of the trailer is mainly silver and really does a nice job bringing out all of the details. I did another photo shoot with my old camera to show some of those details. I'm loving the way this looks with Black Convoy!

    I'd speculate that they're simply production overstock pieces that weren't painted for the gold MP-5.

    I bought their Soundwave hands last week, mostly due to being fed up with flying index finger syndrome. So far, I've put one hand on, let the other as original. I might actually prefer the originals. The KFC ones look so spindly and skeletal compared to the nice fat originals.

    Hopefully KFC Magnus fingers will look nice and fat due to them being physically bigger. But I'm not convinced.

    Btw for Tracks the wings are probably longer than in the cartoon so they can slide out from underneath the car to have the wings. Just my guess.

    My favourite Decepticon in MP Form, this guy looks amazing in both modes! I have a few issues with him, mainly the torso not tabbing in correctly, but the plus' definitely out weigh the negatives. Who disrupts his coronation indeed!

    Yup, I was using Alternator figures as stand ins for the MP collection. With more and more MPs being made, the Alternators looked more and more out of place. Hence they got yanked.

    I still miss having representations of Jazz and Hound in there, but so many MPs got made that replaced the Alt stand in, it's worth it.

    That's the only thing I kind of worry about. Too much clutter so that each figure doesn't have enough representation on the shelf. I don't want them to look like a cluttered blob.

    I struggle with that.

    Man, that looks good. I may just bite the bullet and go for it.

    Thanks, I appreciate it.

    Man, I really need a Chip in my collection. They really need to make more human characters!

    Debating if I should get Xtransbots Apollyon since there appears no MP Megatron in sight, and I don't own the original MP Megatron.

    I hear Ya. Even with four detolfs I find mine is getting crowded. For what it is worth I don't think yours looks cluttered or blob like. Just full.

    Love that Optimus pose. Even just standing there he looks alive.
