    Please excuse my cruddy phone pictures, as well as my super dusty shelf.

    Absolutely in love with the car mode. I gawked at the thing for ten minutes before transforming her.

    Robot mode is better than expected, but still not perfect. She feels rather...lanky, I guess. But I absolutely adore my first MP figure. The car mode is gorgeous, the robot mode looks good, and the transformation is just the right balance of complex and simple. Very nice!

    Road Rage is a great figure and I love that red Corvette mode. Just call your dusty shelf authentic landscaping.

    I love MP Road Rage, I actually like how her robot mode is more lithe than your average MP car bot. I like how solidly everything pegs together and yeah, her transformation is great. Like the best of Animated/2010 as far as intuative parts relocation, like the front fenders flipping over with the feet attached.

    :rolleyes2 

    Anyway, even though MP-29 is still perfection in my eyes, I've been messing around with my other MP's lately. I've decided I really don't single one out as a favorite, as they're all awesome in their own ways.
    Every time I look at my shelves, I have difficulty deciding who to pull down to mess with.
    I am so glad I decided to get into this line.

    Funny, you summed up my sentiments perfectly.

    Having said that....last night's choice while watching some TV was Ironhide and Grimlock.

    There are a couple I'm not too fond of, but overall I agree. Sometimes I just leave them on the shelf because I can't decide.

    I'm right there with you. I just love the MP figures I have. I have a few out almost daily and love to pose them and just mess around with them. Now if only my bank account would cooperate with my wish list...

    Such a very nice set up leov36!

    So clean. Love the Megatron over the TV and the MP Coins on the wall as well.

    What cabinet is that? If only the sides were glass as well, it'd be perfect! I'm still looking for something better than what I've got...
