    If you're being selective about which figures to collect, it's a no-brainer to give this one a miss. Especially when you already have the superior (imho) version of the mold in G2 Sideswipe.

    The Countach mold isn't bad per se but it's just very lacking, with all the advances made to MP figures in the last 5 years.

    Yep, I am being selective and MP G2 Sideswipe is more relevant to me personally because I had the original. I agree with what you said too, once Prowl was in my hands the difference was very high. Prowl and most releases since have felt more like action figures with articulation emphasized to a higher degree.

    I'm glad MP12 was made and glad for all the advances. If possible I would at the very least, love to see Takara retool the ankles for more rocker tilt and the knees for double joints. Maybe split the hip plate into 3 so that the middle stays stationary with just the other 2 moving depending on which leg is moved up.

    Did I miss something, or was it confirmed that MP-12+ has the same problem as the previous versions of holding its gun? (genuine question.)

    I mean, yeah, it looks wonky in the pic, but I wasn't sure if that was from handling or due to the same old issue with the hand.

    MP-12 was my first MP Autobot car, and I was pleased with its (by today's standard) relatively simple transformation and sturdiness in both modes.

    But yeah, the gun fit issue also bugs me.

    Hasbro Asia exclusive coin for MP-12+

    Of all the various coins released for MP-12, this is the only one that uses the Japanese name "Lambor".

    The previous coins from the original release and Asian reissues for reference.

    Wondering the same. Would like to have Sideswipe and Sunstreaker to ship together, to save a bit on shipping costs, but do not know if AE holds items that long?

    They don't specify how long but 1 month isn't an issue from my experience.

    I'm guessing after this drops Takara will be done with this future new releases for this mold outside of reissues.

    This is also the only one whose wheel looks anything at all like a Countach wheel. Considering it's the main part of the artwork, makes you wonder why they ever even went with the previous look in the first place.

    Toy Dojo, and The Chosen Prime give them away free when you preorder with them. BBTS has them as well but charge extra if you want the figure with the coin. I think some of the stores in Asia give them away too.

    I thought they were standard issue with Hasbro Asia releases? I know e-tailers sometimes handle them differently though

    Yeah, I figure they still have to get to him at some point.

    Breakdown would have to be all new, like Sunstreaker.

    man they’re using dhl express. I don’t know how amazon japan do it. I’ll have my package delivered Monday morning. Amazon Japan is as cheap as the fucking degenerate KO scene.

    Anybody else order this with their Sunstreaker and had the order split up? I'm going to have like 6 different Amazon boxes by Tuesday just waiting for my LG Misfire. So glad I put more than enough on my card to cover wasn't expecting them to release sideswipe early.
