So what are we expecting? Above or below the Binaltech standard?

He does look very basic but I suppose it is very G1.

I have my pre-order in.

Being a Masterpiece has gotta make it above Binaltech. It's just smaller.

Even the Hybrid Style figures were above Binaltech (almost at Masterpiece level) and those were Scout class sized.

I'll probably buy this guy the same way I bought MP Grimlock. I'll put it off until there are haven't been any masterpieces produced in a while, then when I get him wonder why I didn't get him sooner. Lol.

True. Though, how do the Alternity figures compare? More, less, the same as the BTs? Before Alternity came along, I had the top four complex lines down to the following:
  • Masterpiece
  • Hybrid Style
  • Binaltech/Alternators
  • Revenge of the Fallen

The Alternity figures are kinda two-fold, at least Convoy and Megatron. The front and middle sections have Automorph, the arms are straight-forward, it's the back end that's complicated. It's like a folding puzzle with hollow legs as a result.
Top 5 Priorities:

1) BW Neo X-7 Elphaorpha
2) BW II VS-18 Powerhug vs. Autocrusher
3) Universe 2003 Night Slash Cheetor
4) Arms Micron Terrorcon Bumblebee
5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)

Preparing to move to the US!

Comparable in complexity, but different. BTs seemed to pay more attention to the interiors and panel lines making them look like model cars...Alternity only seem to where convenient.

Although THS, I wonder how complex they really are and how much of it is perceived due to their size. Blow them up to a size you can actually get your fingers on the parts and they might seem a bit less involved.

So far I'm digging the look of MP-12. :grin: Do you guys think this one will see a domestic Hasbro release or will licensing issues with Lambhorgini prevent that? Admittedly, I'm not too familiar with how that all works so I'd be interested to hear some people weigh in on the subject.

If he doesn't come out here, I may just have to import the Takara version. :BOT:

This guy needs to post a teaser image with this figure next to either Protector , classics Hound, Hegemon or hell, classics Sideswipe. I don't neccesarily collect MPs in fact the only one I had was Grim for awhile. His scale is acceptable on the classics shelf because he's a friggin dinosaur so it works.

I had one Binaltech, the black and silver one that had a sunstreaker face. Is that thing larger than this MP Sideswipe? It had a ton of detail, was heavy as shit and was pretty intense transforming if I remember correctly, sold it as well.

I prefer the classics hound over the BT one. I hate MP Optimus. Hegemon is better than MP Megs (imo) keeping in mind I am referring to overall scale. It should be noted I do not like classics Prime either. His arms and his height. Waiting for the Hegemon version of Prime (dont recall who made it thats why).

Soooooo...........

How big is this Lambor gonna look next to the classics Ive mentioned? If he's too big its automatic pass as I dont collect MPs. I see him as one of Prime's elite so if he's a little tall and beefy thats ok, but if he is like Towering over Protector it aint gonna work.

oh yea, I hate his classics mold too. They should make a sunstreaker with a bit more effort involved, screw red alert, what a ripoff. Tracks ok, not too much into them other 'new autobots'. In other words, I aint buyin no friggin Hoist for example if they made a Trailbreaker. The six seekers are bad enough in that regard.

Someone PM this guy and kindly ask for some scale shots.

And just my 2 cents: Is it really possible that Lamborghini wouldnt want this released in the states? That would be a kick in the testicles. I'm starting to realize no matter what I buy in america its just a bootleg compared to japan. Ah well, guess it was like that back in the day if you think about it.

Oh and one more thing. No rubber tires? Boo.

Why would an official TakaraTomy employee post comparison with a third party (A.K.A. "rival") product?

Dead End.

MP Lambor is about the same size as the Binaltech/Alternators toys.

He's roughly the size of a Voyager.

It's not that Lamborghini wouldn't want it in the U.S.; it's if Hasbro feels the license is worth getting or not so they can sell this toy. If Hasbro feels that it's too much effort and money to get the license, then they wouldn't bother. :roll:
