    'tis a shame they went with the focus group ending for the film, since 'Don't Feed the Plants' is a great ending number.

    (For clarity, Kani is me. Also I noticed I hadn't fully censored the other person's name, which I have now done.)

    Decisions decisions... I've had Crimson Wings a week and I still can't ruddy decide which I prefer. Why can't one just be obviously better than the other? I can't deal with this level of nuance!

    Provided this gets funded Haslab say they will go into production straightaway. Orders estimated to be delivered circa Dec 2022. Below is all the info we have at the moment. Hopefully somebody in here can say how on time/track Unicron/Galactus was when compared to their respective estimated delivery dates.

    You’ve had no updates from them on your orders going back to April. Did you email them and get no reply? Sorry if you have said before what response or lack of reply from Sonners.

    Forgive the ignorance. Which is which? I could do with upgrading my MP seekers as I still have the iGear (with G1 style toy repro labels which I really like so that helps).

    Ah, thanks. For some reason it never occurred to me to read that part!

    Well, that leaves me even more on the fence!

    I think the one on the left is the official MP-52 and then Crimson Wings is on the right, Takara is more grey and CW is more white I believe.

    CW looks bloody good, I’d have got MP-52 if he turned out like that rather than what we got. No waist swivel on an MP is beyond inexcusable.

    Do you have Megs to hand. Can you stick him in between the two and put the photo up for me?

    I still have to contact them. They are sending stuff out all the time though, I've had stuff from them the last two weeks. And they recently got a load of stuff in other places are still waiting on. It's the now standard big two shitshow combined with the general shitshow.

    Legwarmers! Those bloody ankles make sense now! Lol

    No probs, I may have ordered a few things myself...

    It appears I have that capacity.

    The MP is more fun to handle/transform. however the proportions on DS are nicer... but then I prefer the darker palette on the MP! A waist swivel is better than no waist swivel, but the MP ab crunch is better executed it's swings and roundabouts and it driving me slightly up the wall.

    What do they cost each? Apologies for the questions.

    No need to apologise. CW is about half the price of the MP... so lacking a better reason it may end up coming down to cold hard cash.

    Hmm. Could be tempted. How much were you thinking?

    Picked up a gnaw today, he's got bags of character and I'm getting similar 'love it' vibes as the alicon but had anyone else found his arms/shark mode legs to be really loose and floppy? Mine can't even support his shark body due to the loose mushroom peg and pinned shoulder/hip. The only way he'll stand in shark mode is if I balance his body on his knees.

    Wondering if I picked up a bad copy or if they are all like that.

    At that price I may be tempted. They may just be a tad too show accurate for my collection, but I can see why they went for that aesthetic and they both totally nailed it. I've always liked the toy/real world/character model blend in MP but that is a dying trend since MP Prime Version 3.

    Even though it would mean a completely new subset of MP, it's still mighty tempting.
