    Not to derail but is there not a general MPM chatting thread? Just to discuss the line? I don’t really have any pics to post and don’t want to speculate. Tried to post something like I was looking for but it was immediately locked for being “covered in another thread” even though the thread in question was more of a multi-post list curated by one board member rather than a discussion thread.

    Pulled the trigger and bought Jazz in HLJ (he's currently about 8000¥), unfortunely, the cheapest shipping method has no tracking available, welp. I'll be here...waiting.

    My Mpm 3 bee has just been shipped, I hope to get it before Christmas....
    I know I'm very very late at the party but started to buy TFs only in September... He will be my first official mpm, in fact he is also the most expensive figure by now... But I just can't wait!!!

    I loved him till the first time I saw him but I've always waited with the hope to get a good bargain or something... But I saw it is getting very difficult to find one so I decided myself and bought it for Christmas... Before it gets even more expensive!

    I guess location really does matter. Both MPM Bees are showing up at deep discount retailers here.

    Yes for sure... I live in Germany (Munich, to be precise) and here aren't TFs so successfull as in other countries. I haven't still seen a single MP or MPM in any retailer yet... Only some ss or random Siege... That's it... So my only choice is internet... And there I saw that on many sites was him already sold out or very expensive... So I made my move, also because I think this is the definitive bee (I really love him)and we will not see new releases soon....

    I can't wait to use MPM Starscream to attack Jazz. He wants payback from The game.

    I'll let this question here, because i searched in the forum but I couldn't find anything helpfull: which action figures do you use next to your mpms? I'm looking for some kinda soldiers or figure which are in scale and with the same level of details and articulation but I found really not much in ebay.... Also because all I could write was '"6 cm action figure". Can someone give me tips or give me the link to any discussion on the forum?

    No problem. They're actually a bit undersized but they can easily be fudged in. Here's another...
