Re: Kool Kollectibles Reviews Full Thread (Latest is Masterpiece Moments Pt2)

14 months ago back in March 2015, I did a video discussing my Masterpiece Moments for the TF MP figures in my collection.

There have been quite a few additions to the MP collection since then so I though it was time for me to do the next episode and go through my Masterpiece Moments for all the latest figures since that time.

Takara have pumped out about one figure per month since then, albeit mostly repaints. Hope you can check out my thoughts on these Masterpiece figures :)

Alt mode comparison shots of MP-14 Red Alert and MP-14+ Red Alert (Anime Colour). For me, the original alt mode colours are definitely better. I prefer the bright white, the Lamborghini logo and car model text on the rear. Could be a different story in bot mode though!

Bot mode comparison shots of MP-14 Red Alert and MP-14+ Red Alert (Anime Colour). I actually preferred the original in alt mode, but for the most part prefer the new one in bot mode. Video review with thoughts up soon :)

Here's my review of the new MP-14+ Red Alert (Anime Color Edition). Overall a solid release. I definitely prefer the cartoon accurate colours more in bot mode than in alt mode.

EDIT: Robotkingdom just emailed out a notification saying MP-14+ was meant to have a coin. Hasbro Asia will be providing them shortly so RK will ship them out included in your next order. That's awesome!!

Here's my somewhat late review of MP-33 Inferno. It's another bloody awesome new mold from Takara, with some ingenious engineering worthy of "Masterpiece Moments" for sure!

Here's the MP class of 2016 for me, with no more releases that I'm getting until Feb 2017. I did pass on MP Optimus Primal, but overall that makes it almost one MP figure per month released by Takara, which is pretty damn awesome.

I'm still loving this series of figures, with some of the best G1 styled Transformers ever made. With the likes of Megatron, Grapple, and Dirge to come in 2017, plus hopefully more announcements from the core cast, it should be another fantastic year!

Re: Kool Kollectibles Reviews Full Thread (Latest is XT Eligos)

Postby koolkollectibleskhai » Sat Jan 14, 2017 4:17 am

Here's my review of the new X-Transbots MX-III Eligos (aka Cyclonus). It looks beautiful out of the box, and the bot mode is very nice, but the transformation sequence is just utter frustration. I have never sworn at a toy as much as this before, and there were many steps where I felt like throwing this in the bin.

XT really need to work on designing intuitive and elegant transformations, not overly complex and frustrating ones.

Here's my video review of MP Dirge too. Overall, a decent figure to round out the coneheads. I still think Ramjet is the best one out of them.

"The complete egotist, Sunstreaker thinks he is the most beautiful thing on Earth."

Going by this new Takara design, I'm inclined to agree with him!! Absolutely gorgeous figure by Takara!

I don't particularly like the grey tyres on MP-12+ (the black ones are much nicer), but together these two look incredible! Nostalgia heaven!!

Not liking the grey tyres in alt mode. I think they made them grey for the bot mode where the cartoon had grey parts where the wheels would be. Shame though. Overall a decent release, particularly if you dont have the original.

Postby koolkollectibleskhai » Wed Jan 10, 2018 5:59 am

Pretty much got this for the revised Steeljaw mold. The others will be displayed in cassette mode as I always have repaints in their alt modes to complement the original figures in their bot modes. Here's hoping this really is a teaser for an official MP Blaster soon!

Nothing that awesome to write home about, but not bad. The new Nightstalker (Steeljaw mold) is decent, but mine did come with a QC issue where one front paw was assembled in reverse. Will post up a closeup pic later to see if anyone can give me some advice to fix (not sure how to remove a pin of some sort that holds the paw in place but allows it to bend).
