    I have a personal "no repaints" rule when it comes to MPs...and while I love my Prowl, I'm finding it harder to resist getting a Smokescreen...

    If you can still find him for import prices, so like around 330, I'd say dive in. The pros is that he's the definitive g1 cartoon Prime experience. You literally get everything. The cons is that he's pricey, and can be a bit of a bear to transform. I can't recommend buying in at the American retail of $450 though.

    I bought him for 350.
    400+ is crazy to spend on a figure.
    What i've paid was already to much.
    He should have launched for 300.
    Then he was cleaned out everywhere.

    Protip, when you're quoting someone make sure that you don't write it inside the quote brackets, otherwise it's not easy for me to see :lol 

    I used a hair-drier and a ruler, but I know from @Dean ML and @chchchch that it's possible to simply bend the antennae outwards by hand. Just keep doing it repeatedly and eventually they'll splay to whatever angle you want.

    Quick question: I have come across a Masterpiece Smokescreen and Masterpiece Streak for $55 and $45 respectively. Given how much masterpiece figures go for these days, the $55 and $45 price tags are a borderline steal. However, I only want to get one and was wondering which one is worth getting?

    Smokescreen. Bluestreak+ looks great, but Smokescreen has fantastic tolerances, which have been an issue on some bluestreaks...

    Just make sure the source is legitimate. KOs have been hovering around those prices. Really depend on which character you like more.

    Are they both the Takara versions? The original MP-18 has a really classy colour scheme, and makes use of the T-bar roof. I'd say the + version of MP-19 is superior in every way, while in the case of MP-18 at least the original colours are more real-world accurate.

    For those prices I doubt he's talking about the + versions.

    The 3 brothers are all worth owning....:thumb 




    This mold (no matter the version) is fantastic!
    I absolutely love this figure!

    Looking at Ebay... found a relatively inexpensive MP-17 (I don't think that it was +) on Ebay, and I was wondering if anyone had pictures of him next to a CHUG voyager Optimus (Siege preferred) with the leg mod to make him Deluxe size?

    That's exactly what I was going for. I finally have enough space to display the vehicles and robots.

    Now, I can finally break this diorama down and reclaim my living room.

    Looks freaking awesome!

    But why the f is Bumblebee and Sunstreaker the same price?
    If bee costed 80, it was a good price, like all the other smaller carbots.
    Lots of 2.0 stuffs. I need that plus Wheeljack and the nissan bros.
    Since i don't know any 3rd parties making these characters.
