    Plus, if THF or IT make an MP44, we will likely get Peter Cullen voice clips :-D

    Modfans were the ones who did that (IT made a deal to have a slightly lesser version of the modfans cannon - fewer voice clips - included with the first run of their MP36) and the sound quality was terrible. Personally I'd just as soon they leave the stupid voice gimmick out and see if they can shrink the backpack.

    True. However, the Frank Welker clips on the THF 03 are loud, clear, and fantastic.

    Ever wonder why MP44 is so expensive? Like it almost feels like they're punishing the fans in retaliation for the 3rd party market being so successful. And mostly from China and of rival if not better product. If TE adds paint and does a metallic flek style darker paint, adds the silver stripe and silver accents, I'll definitely jump and get a second version.

    More like punishing the fans because TT lost the Pokemon license.

    No to these silver stripes! He is great that way! But maybe some dark red paint to make it stand out more yes.

    Yes to silver stripes! You already got the plain-Jane alt mode, lol. Let the toy fans have something, too ;)

    I don't know, but I doubt it; Only heads made for this specific toy will transform properly. If you use any other head, it becomes a partsformer.

    I know, just curious since it has the the same basic design as the new head sculpt.

    They'd just have to do it detachable.

    Punish those who ran away by hitting those who stayed?
    That logic is so weird that it might even be true in a corporate businessperson's mind.

    more than likely takara see other high priced toy lines get away with high pricing so they think they can get away with it which truthfully they can i bet mp44 will sell out ,, it has nowt to do with third party's :)

    TCP is a great site to order from. They're in the US which means you get your stuff quickly (usually). They only downsides are they, like all US retailers, charge more than the Chinese retailers and you have to pay for shipping as well. They also have a rewards program where you get 1 point for every dollar you spend and the points can be traded in for gift cards to use on future purchases.
