    He looks good but after the nonsense with their Prime Im in no rush to have one. Maybe around V3 or V4:p

    That's a nice looking bot mode. Let's see TE's alt mode though.

    It looks nice.

    TE is becoming a top tier 3p in a very short time.
    I hope they will handle a lot of characters that deserve better.. Cough cough - Ironhide - cough...

    wow!! see this on tigerblades facebook and instantly thought oh fuck an mp reveal , looks amazing !!!


    hopefully there's a £1 selling fee promotion this weekend mmc's is getting sold as quick as :lol 


    "edit" i think the only thing they need to change is the shape of the missile slightly but other than that it's an almost perfect mirage

    Man...TE is going to supplant FT as the premier 3rd party if they keep hitting homeruns like this. Jazz or Rodimus next please!

    If only they'd announced this a few months ago before I got the Sphinx reissue. But I'm a one and done guy: it takes a lot to get me to replace a figure and I don't think I care enough about Mirage to replace him. Still, I'll enjoy the show of seeing this figure come to fruition.

    No regrets on listing my Sphinx. I liked it but it always seemed off to me. This clears those feelings right up. Give me 2 please!!!

    I like how the knees aren’t the split engine. I know that’s how it was on the toy, but it looks a tad better doing something else. Not enough to swap out my MMC, but might be an option for someone getting into this fresh.

    Looks promising, but I'm sticking to the MMC version.

    Don't feel like going through the hassle of selling it (likely at a loss) and then getting this. Buying an all new figure that's the same character I already have, just isn't very rewarding, interesting or fun to me.

    Damn, this looks nice! I'm keeping my MMC version, though. I'm interested to see the alt mode.
