We've all heard it. Most recently I've seen it a number of times in the GCreations IDW Prime thread. "Why do we need to have everything in MP scale? Why do all these companies have to make everything in MP scale?" Well, I don't speak for everyone but I'm going to tell you why. I'm not 10 years old. That's right. I'm a 43 year old who likes nice things. Sure, I dink around with the occasional mass-released Hasbro 'toys' that are meant for kids. Titans Return has been one massive fan wank that has kept me entertained since the first release of the line and likely will until its very last. But that is all the more reason for wanting something wholly different out of 3rd party. From 3rd party I don't care whether its G1, IDW, MTMTE, or whatever else, I want a superb quality collectible. If I want a deluxe class figure I'll go spend the $15 bucks at the local WallyWorld for that. Because it doesn't matter if its deluxe, voyager, or whatever...if it's 3rd party its going to be pricey. So if I am going to spend pricey I want something that fits my mitts, not something that disappears in my hands. I want a box that makes me want to display it just as much as the figure(Generation Toy you devils). I want it to made out of amazing plastic(I'm looking at you MMC). I want to have a buttery smooth transformation(Spartan you sexy beast). Lifting it should feel like I actually bought something other than air(Jupiter sent me to the moon). You see, I'm not buying or wanting a Masterpiece 3P figure because it is 'in scale' with other figures. I'm buying a Masterpiece 3P figure because I want a figure that feels like the designer poured their ever loving soul into it and the factory broke the bank to delivery the golden egg of quality into my sweaty anticipatory hands. And if it doesn't meet that criteria than I'm going to sell it and replace it with something that does.
