Wolf-Spider
Sideswipe's spoiler is right behind his ankles. I doubt a mere twister mechanism would solve that problem.

Sorry, but Alternity figures aren't nearly as detailed or as G1 accurate.


Say what? Alternity figures are very detailed. It is amazing that amount of detail that go into such little figures. I agree they just have not been G1 accurate, so far, but that doesn't mean that couldn't change.

So through this picture it is suffice to say that MP-12 is not just Voyager-size...He also have a Voyager-class transformation -__-...Which means he's literally a Voyager class with a Masterpiece price....Wow...

And my god he's so fcking blocky O.O...He look worse than Deluxe Rodimus's blockiness...Well it's official, I wont be buying this crap unless if it's on sale for like 30~40 dollars.

Here I thought MP-03 is the worst MP...Well looks like MP-12 will be the new worst MP. Congratulations Takara. You manage to make a toy crappier than a toy you make 5++ years ago.

My HA Bumblebee fits my MP-10. HA BB's roughly the size of alternators.

I do think that Lambor will be hard to place next to the more recent Materpiece figures, because, stylistically, he doesn't go. He is too blocky in relation to the Primes. But then, his vehicle mode is supposed to be a Countach which was one of the boxiest (but sexiest) cars of all time.

MP-12 Lambor? I'm in hog heaven. Bring it on. I'd like a US version though, $140+ is too steep. If the teaser is Soundwave, then bring that on too. Win/win. But what I really want is a US MP Thundercracker to go with warp & SS.
19 pages already? crickey!!!!

I am very excited about this, and will most assuredly be selling my Binaltech Lambor to make room for this guy. But I am even more excited about a Soundwave, hopefully with my fav cassette Buzzsaw (he just doesn't get much love, but I used to love the few times he made an appearance on the show). And I would be really happy if the cassettes were portable MP3 players, and soundwave the compatible sterio (I know it would never happen, but that is my dream Soundwave).

Chances are they'll do what they're doing with FoC Soundwave, that is, making Soundwave and Laserbeak, then repainting them into Soundblaster and Buzzsaw. It's inevitable since they seem to want to milk the MP molds for all they're worth, so I'd wait if I were you. It's bound to happen.

If it is Soundwave i will make a bet it includes at least 4 tapes.
They've given us an in scale autobot car to go with the inevitable Magnus release trailer.
They've had the balls to rescale the mp line after mp-08

I have faith lol

for some reason, I think Soundwave is only going to come with 1 tape. Buzzsaw or Laserbeak.

I wonder if MP sideswipe will come with a jet pack accessory?

If he does, you can bet it'll fit on MP-10.

There needs to be a shitload of accessories at the current price. Two jet packs, a nice display stand, pile drivers... and SS's quips.
