    Generations.
    Both shiny, both wonderful and with a lot of character.
    (obviously the fact that the all silver fairlady was the first trasformer/ transformers to enter my parent's house in 1984 has nothing to do with my personal preferences, i swear...;) )

    Looks awesome! Is he as fun and engaging to mess with as people say?

    The beast wars mp line is even more attractive to me because of the lack of good KOs. I feel like these figures must be much more expensive to replicate because of the digital paint jobs and curved pieces everywhere.

    He is a lot of fun, really posable and the transformation is pretty easy and intuitive

    I'm sorry to keep bogging this thread with my MP Hot Rod problems, but does MP-40, the legit one, have issues with chrome wear? With how much of a minefield Ebay is, and how expensive even KOs are, I may be better off buying a legit MP-40 nd doign the pipe swap. I feel like the AKOM colours would accept the silver painted pipes better than the magenta original. But if I'm just going to run into the same issue again I won't bother.

    I posted these in the Beast Wars thread after taking a few pics this weekend of Megs and Primal. 20200508_140231.jpg 20200508_134344.jpg 20200508_134152.jpg 20200508_134020.jpg 20200508_133842.jpg

    From what I understand, MP-40 does not have any chrome issues.
    Also, did you see my post in the MP28 KO thread?
    KO MP-28 Masterpiece Hot Rod 2.0

    I love these!

    I did not, which is weird because I thought the @ thing was supposed to notify you. (unless I have it turned off maybe?)

    I am considering going for a legit MP-40 now, though. I kinda like it, and I feel like silver or even grey pipes would fit the AKOM deco nicely, freeing up the chrome pipes for my MP-28.

    Plus, the last time I tried to buy a KO off Ebay I got scammed, so I'm wondering if going legit is safer. Unfortunately the price issue is the same either way, simply because the dollar conversion is so whack.

    Aaaagghhhh this is wracking my brain. I just wish MP-28's chrome wasn't a problem. Either way replacing the pipes is gonna cost me minimum $60+.

    Funny thing about the KO, I bought it some time after I got the official Hot Rod, and the KO's chrome is in perfect condition while MP-28's chrome is turning orange. MP-40's chrome is aces as well and shows that TT ironed out the chrome issues present in Hot Rod and the first release of Ironhide.

    You won't have a problem with MP-40.

    @Ikkstakk

    Was looking at your new signature chart. Now I've been looking forward to new Beast Wars Masterpiece figures than G1 figures. Mostly because I've basically given up hope for some characters because of their licensing issues.

    You can thank HolyCulture for the return of the chart, he put in a special request. As for the Beasts that made it, Tigatron's relatively early appearance gave them a boost, plus Takara's continued use of the Legends Rhinox, Rattrap and Waspinator in photography sessions seems to possibly suggest the second-tier characters will come first?

    From that chart, I'd like to see them make Terrorsaur or Tarantulas. However, I would prefer Scorponok or Inferno next.

    @Arduous - Kinda reminds me of a dysfunctional family portrait :p  I like how Screamer is positioned perfectly behind Megs - just enough to be hidden and at the right angle to push him off the shelf :D

    FINALLY bought this. Trying to get the tower in his hand seems nonsensical. The hook falls off too easy. Otherwise he’s great.
