I'm always so amazed that people do their MP without instructions. I'm always so worried I'll ham-hand the damned thing that the first time is always with instructions. After that it's all memory and I take my time to admire engineering and little tricks.

I always use the instructions for the first time I transform a Masterpiece figure for the same reasons. I don't want to do something wrong and break a $100+ figure. By the time I get a new Masterpiece, plenty of YouTubers have already gotten their samples and put up reviews with step by step transformation instructions. I also don't really Transform my Masterpiece figures very often. They're mostly for display and not play as far as I'm concerned. There are some Masterpiece transformations that I can do pretty consistently without the instructions, just because of extensive mold reuse, like any of the Seekers, the Datsun brothers, the Sideswipe Lamborghinis, etc. Others are just relatively easy Transformations, like Soundwave or MP-10 Optimus Prime.

For most other Transformers products, I just try to figure out the Transformations myself. Almost nothing in the Generations line, for instance, is too tricky to do "blind" if you just use pictures of the completed modes as reference. Each one is kind of a little puzzle to solve and makes the process more rewarding. If Masterpiece toys were less expensive and less fragile, I'd use more of that puzzle-solving with them too, but as it is now, I can't afford to be so adventurous.

Stop the presses! My uber awesome epitome of origamic engineering design no paint flaking even if I look at him funny MP Sunstreaker has a PRODUCT defect! His left thumb is UNPAINTED :-( Sl@g Takara! 8-}

Takara seriously has to get their act together and quit churning out such marvels or there will be hades to pay! :lol:

MP Dinobot is sure to be a clunker given how it is presented next!

Image wise, the F.Dery head looks meh but on hand...........amazing! Really really amazin'! bDid I say awesome amazin'?

And why is he made in China and not Vietnam?

Why aren't there overruns yet? Or where there already?

Because MP-39 Masterpiece Sunstreaker represents the pinnacle of Takara Tomy's engineering, and simply mastering the conversion among all three modes is a way for you to touch that greatness yourself, feeling for a brief moment that you're a part of that same magic? I'm just guessing, though. ;)^

I mean mastering a Masterpiece. It was really more of a rhetorical question. :lol:
