its like factory stock.. box is takara...
Just beautiful - what technique did you use to get the legs red?
And the new champions of the Cybertronian Super Bowl are the Autobots.
Terrible typing that's what! Meant to say favourite.
Ooft, I am tempted by Artfire but the stockersdetailing puts me off. If they were removable I'd be all in.
Can't believe he's been out over a month now - still in love! Posed him endlessly and transformed him at least a dozen times and no qc issues to report here. The windshield shouldn't be bumping into anything to cause stress marks - the back should be arched (reverse ab crunch) to give it plenty of room to swing around freely. Again, in bot mode hood tabs into the butt, fake windshield tabs into the stomach piece, chrome spoilers with tabs facing down, and inner calf kibble tabs to close the gaps and make this figure lock tight and secure all around.
Not sure who was looking for a Prowl a few weeks back but here's one from ToyArena.
Transformers Masterpiece MP-17 Prowl Nissan Fairlady 280z, Toyarena
I've actually bought several MPs and 3P from this store front so they are super legit.
As I posted in the recent purchases thread, I got my hands on Hasbro's MP10 on Saturday night (Feb. 3rd), and while my collection is far from finished, having the leader of the Autobots sure feels good.
I love how Convoy looks with the City Commander. Now I want some yellow acrylic hobby paint to improve MP22's running lights and match Prime's alt mode.
I love how Ultra Magnus carries a 4 man crew.
I want to buy Sideswipe and Sunstreaker next month if they are still on the shelf. I dropped a lot of money in Jan and right after payday this month... but I don't regret it one bit. I love these toys. I don't have a large collection, but I love what I have.
Heck yes! That's the best thing about Magnus, his little four-bot team. Sideswipe and Sunstreaker would look awesome on there! Still room one bot in Prime's trailer - and Bumblebee can sit on top of the trailer in bot mode.
Also your collection will never be finished
so uhm I just received MP rumble and jaguar from TF direct but it is in no way what I ordered wtf? (I ordered perfect effect's ginrai powermaster) also I went to their site tried to log in using my gmail account and it logged me in to a complete strangers account twice. how did they fuck up this badly?
You are right. I know my collection will never be finished, but I startee with MP Bee in August 2016 and waiting a year and a half to eventually get Prime has been a big relief for me.
I live in Lima, Peru. International shipping is super expensive and we have levels of corruption at the post offices. If an item is new, they want to know the sale value of it and to tax you 18% of that value before giving it to you. They don't care that it was already paid for. They want a cut and wont release it until you pony up. Often times, they flat out refuse to release used things. Forget about sending clothes or toys as donations to needy children. You had better find another way, like bringing it yourself in a plane or by boat.
So, that being said, the online market has Takara MP10 as low as 950 soles (not $) and as high as 1200 soles. The Hasbro version is apparently more popular, and that cartoon accurate roller, more accurate prime red blue and gray on prime, and his lively eyes vs the Takara blocked out light piping eyes which look dead... the Hasbro versionnhas lists prices of 1200-1300 soles, or over $400 (3.2 exchange rate. I made a deal to get Prime, Thrilling 30 springer, Takara Brawn, and Hasbro Titans Return Hot Rod as a group to save money and paid 945 for Prime, which is roughly $295. Saving $100 and saving a ton on the other figures too felt great. I basically saved so much that several guys evened out the cost and were basically free.
That is how I plan to get more later, in large batches. People love when you can pay cash up front, seeing how unstable south american governments are, and I like owning things before my money is worthless. A good deal if you ask me.
It's TT's silver Roller that's cartoon accurate I had the Hasbro Optimus and it was cool, but TT's more extensive paint coverage beat it in hand. My TT copy also had tighter joints than the Hasbro, especially the ankles which really helped with posing.
Absolutely love it! My favorite of the datsuns
Interesting. I havent seen season 1 in a long time. When I do image searches, I find a few in silver and lots of blue. I guess blue was in the comics or something, because there is art in both colors.
Yeah, both figures have advantages and disadvantages for sure. I am a big fan on his colors though; the yellow lights, and most importantly, his eyes.
In my teens and early 20's, I used to assemble scale models, so I have some expereince with paint and a brush. I am no expert, but I will enjoy detailing the repair bay insides and updatinv MP22 to look more like MP10.
The MP line is so amazing and is THE REASON I buy transformers.
Just got a text saying that my Megatron (that I ordered from Amazon Japan on FRIDAY) is scheduled to deliver tonight. I may never order masterpiece figures from another company ever again. Not a bad way to start a Monday...especially a Monday when your team loses in the superbowl
Yup. My Saturday order of Megs will be here Tuesday.
Once again sir, awesome posing. I am proper jelly of your ability to breathe life into inanimate figures in the way you do.
