    I realize what I said may not be a popular view here, but I don't mind differing opinions, as long as they are open-minded and thoughtful. Healthy debate makes for good conversation, and a chance to expand our own viewpoints.

    I agree with Rev. And if takara did make a sludge God knows how long his chrome would last but the way they've been going it probably wouldn't have chrome. Also deep down inside I think TAKARA only people know dinobots or reflector aren't coming within the next 5 years. But kudos for having patience.

    Agreed....hopefully I'm not wrong because I've betted my left nut on all the dibots and Sphinx. Thankfully I was right on QW

    3rd party offerings rarely interest me,because every iteration produced later by Takara is simply aesthetically more pleasing to my eye. But I get why those that simply love diecast or excess detailing love 3rd party.

    What do you mean by "excess" detailing. Did you mean excessive? If so let me remind you MPs weren't screw toy crossover with show were going pure cartoon until MP ironhide,hotrod. 3P are doing what TAKARA I guess now used to do since the majority of MPs have "excess detailing"

    I mean excess as in unnecessary to the representation of the character imo. Compare DX 9 Carry to MP 09 Rodimus Prime which isn't exactly a recent figure. I appreciate the balance that Takara is able to achieve without looking overdone. 3rd party offerings have their merits, but for the most part are not for me.

    We recently got our hands on this Takara Tomy Mall Exclusive, and we were not disappointed!

    Gotta say I agree with a lot of collectors in that Ratchet is an absolute pain in the arse to transform without getting paint scratches. I was pretty careful and dont have too many issues, but some scratches werent even my doing! I actually would've preferred a mostly white plastic figure like Wheeljack than white painted plastic that scratches so easily! Still, it does look pretty damn nice, and is a good addition to the MP ranks.

    Doesn't bother me at all.

    I would be very happy if they retooled Grimlock. I'm forgiving with him because it was a gimmicky one-off before the rebooted line. Half of the problem may be expecting too much out of Takara with their pacing and release schedules. I can't wait for MP Inferno and the eventual release of the other coneheads but seeing someone like Reflector or Skids is remote. Not saying it won't happen but remote.

    I'm very happy that the Dinobots are complete. I'll pass on Grinder as I still love MP Grimlock. I could use a new set of hands or a Grimlock 2.0 of course but he works for now.

    Right, because those other bots don't hold a candle to the Takara ones! *coughs*

    Nice line up Bug. Can't wait for FT Hound as well. MT Hound is cool but he's not cutting it.

    You'll be happy with FT Stomp as well.
