    @Destructimis Prime , can't get enough of your shots, especially 44!

    @chchchch , buddy, I'll say it again - you should be getting paid for set ups and shots that glorious. Can't believe how abundantly blessed us G1 toon nerds/articulation junkies have it now!

    I finally transformed my 44 play copy to truck mode and back last night for the first time and it took about an hour, mostly because I missed two steps and had to go back and re-do, but in the end I got him all flush. Wasn't easy! But the arms have to be clicked in correctly and the knees have to be on the correct click (which is a trick!). Only took 20 min or less to turn him back to bot, though. No problems there. Gonna go for it again tonight to really get it down pat.

    Rando quick n dirty deskshots. Just can't get enough of this guy. Dream toy come true for me. Bummer that knee problems have cast a dark cloud over this miraculous figure.

    Most of the reviews I've read about MP-44 on Youtube, apparently he's transformation is complex and with his high price tag, some people including me, might opt out on him. MP-10, even though he is nice, he has huge legs, so I might lean towards 3P MP Optimus.

    Thanks so much Dean, that is unbelievable coming from you! If in some parallel universe I was to actually get paid for these silly photos, you would surely out-earn me by an order of magnitude! ;)  But I would take payment directly in the form of MPs :lol  Totally with you on the unbelievable state of all things G1 right now. I never imagined myself doing casual toy photography but these things demand it!!!

    I can't recommend 44 highly enough. I have two copies and neither has knee issues. The transformation is a little daunting at first, but goes much quicker on repeated transformations. His poseability, G1 cartoon aesthetic, gimmicks/accessories, painted finish, and sheer personality is unbeatable. His truck mode is also the most realistic truck mode of any MP and MP-styled G1 Prime ever.
