    It's a stage base4 stand I believe. Google will give you plenty of places to get one from.

    Awesome. High shelf presence. 1st MP to feel almost as heavy if not moreso than MP-01. Intuitive and fun transformation. Love how the driver figures can still be stored in robot mode albeit unrealistically. Love how the extra face plates can be stored in the back. Only a few issues for mine(same goes for Delta Magnus):
    • Full articulation yet hindered. This was made at a time when articulation was going up overall for MP’s. So the hindrances made this feel like a step back in some ways. Whether the shelf presence, size and weight make up for it are up to your preferences.
    I forgot what else I was going to mention while typing this but just goes to show, there wasn’t much I disliked about it.

    Confession time…..

    I sold MP25 Tracks a while back, thinking it’s just taking up room, I want to move away from S2 bots, etc….

    And as compromised and panned the kingdom release was, it’s ‘mini mp’ vibes actually made me miss the MP, and that beautiful official alt mode. Seller’s remorse.

    Well, someone put one up cheap on FB and I’ve caved!!

    Happy to have him (and his floaty ankles) back in the fold. Going to put him in flying car mode and ‘neeeeeeeow’ him about the living room now, so excuse me :D

    I’ve never had a masterpiece figure before the Emgo review released before. I guess I will just wait, lol.

    One nice thing about not coming with a Moto campo (or whatever it’s called) is that you have plenty of room for storing the accessories!)

    I really hope TT does a Soundwave v2 rather sooner than later. I sold my Soundwave, Soundblaster and both cassette packs around the time that Starscream (MP-52) was announced. I really miss a Soundwave now.

    Hello. New member here. Just popping here to ask if any regulars of this thread could recommend a good MP figure that is less than 150 bucks that could be found easily. Thank you.
