If I should ever get MP-47, I'm gluing the wheels into a solid piece and leaving them unstowed to spite the idiotic "Let's copy the thing the cartoon only did because of mediocre animation" design trend. The engineering is creative and clever, but it's unnecessary and out of place here.

And meanwhile, that kind of cleverness hasn't been being used in some of the places that actually need it, Where was that wheel-splitting brainwave when they were designing MPM-4, huh?

In Hand Images of Masterpiece MP-47 Hound

Postby william-james88 » Tue Dec 24, 2019 1:02 pm

Masterpiece Hound was first revealed in July 2018 and now after a year and a half later, he is coming out. While he is coming out at the end of this month, many will be getting him early January. A fan got his hands on him already and uploaded many images on Weibo. Almost half are regarding instructions and steps, and you are free to translate the text found here for extra context. Below you will see images of the alt mode and bot mode with various accessories. Most images are rather unflattering, with dim lighting and a focus on how the head attaches in a funny way.

Take what you will from these but I would wait for criticism until more have it in hand.

Hound looks really good, the head looks better than the promo pics we saw before. As long as the bar the head sits on locks securely in place it should be a non issue.

Hooooo boy I'm not so sure about this one. Putting aside the cracks (which could just be production sample jank) he just looks...off, somehow. Kinda messy. The detail in jeep mode is nice though.

I read everything but quickly. I somehow missed "a fan" and assumed it was yours. Thus my surprise in "your" sudden interest in Figma. Especially for an expensive one such as Konosuba's Aqua.

As for MP Hound himself, he's a big "meh" for me. I'll stick with my good old Alternator version.

You can tell these aren't Will's pictures, there's no sign of his dinning room table and tile floors anywhere to be seen. ;)

The head does look a lot better in these pics, as does the factory paint. Transformation looks to be on par with the likes of Wheeljack or Sunstreaker, complex but not difficult. I think he's going to be a fun one to mess around with.

This figure is very underwhelming. It just looks dull. Like a very well done 3D-printed piece. Not sure why, but it just doesn't work. It's not even the right shade of green, I don't think. I thought Hound was a bit darker.

Someone will probably beat me to it, but hopfully I'll have some better pictures once mine arrives.

Before I had straightened out MP-44's antennas I wanted to cancel Hound in protest, but the pre-order had already passed the cancellation cutoff date so I left it well enough alone.

Will finally have some green on the shelf.

Merry Christmas! Amazon Japan charged me for Hound today, so he is on the way! Should be here by New Years.


As I'm slowly coming around to embracing the new MP style Takara is going with (while still feeling outraged at the prices, I'm a total mark for paying them), I'm quite looking forward to this!

Postby Master Farr 1 » Wed Dec 25, 2019 9:53 pm

Meh, I liked it better when Masterpiece's had a balance of toy and collectors item, like with star saber, or the original bumblebee, and Optimus primal, and especially sideswipe and Mp10. Personally, I'm absolutely happy with my siege hound, it has the right amount of cartoon accuracy while still maintaining its own distinct look. With this guy, it seems takara forgot how these figures work, as not all designs transfer perfectly from animation cel to plastic and die cast. And it's been like that since mp Cheetor and it's only been getting worse since they're under a crazy delusion that we want a ton of accessories we're never going to using as an excuse to mark up the price to the $300 price point. But overall, I feel like masterpiece figures are becoming ridiculously overly engineered leading to breakages on figures like MP 44, and they refuse to take the hint it seems. But those are just my thoughts, I personally won't be buying it since I, perfectly happy with siege hound in my life. But that doesn't mean you yourself can't be excited or want to buy it. So tell me what you think and whether or not you disagree with me so we can start a conversation.

I like him though. It's really Red Alert that bugs me, because he was made back when Takara didn't really invest in major retooling.

Same with the "Plus" line, he was done first, before the retools and fire-effects.
