I bet that she would be one hell of a deluxe "accessory" coming with another small MP. Who would that be though?

So it's not MP Starscream v3 but the MP-44 head makes MP-11 a bit more lively. It's just for display though since he can't transform with the head on.

Is it just me or the G1 Masterpiece are not worth it anymore? Overpriced, fragile, overcomplicated, and especially not good looking at all. Especially with those backpacks that look like a scrapyard of shredded metals.

On the other hand, the Beast Wars MP are killing it, with only the price as an issue.

However, ironically the BEST MP are the movie MPM line. Complicated, yes, but not fragile at all, amazing looking even from the back, and most importantly, very, very fairly priced.

Any reason for this trend?

So far I think only the new MP-45 Bumblebee looks terrible.

MP-44 Optimus Prime's backpack is a bit bigger than should be because of the voice box. Don't know why Takara compromised his silhouette for a kiddie gimmick. But at least it's tidy.

MP-47 Hound looks great, too. But like someone said in the other thread, transforming him is like defusing a bomb because of all those cracked Hounds.

So I guess I somewhat agree, I'm done with MP until further notice.

It could be argued that there was a change behind the scenes, maybe some designers were transfered over to work on the new projects (and maybe some attention was diverted to Takara's own ip that they don't share with hasbro) who knows though for sure. Afterall Takara really only cares for their home market. Maybe this is the direction that they want to go in? The ole be careful what you wish for trope.

Hound just needs a second run with stronger, reinforced plastic in the spots where the first runs have cracked.

Then again, I'm one of the few who still owns and enjoys the old Alternators Hound toy. Probably the only Alternators mold that I actually enjoyed playing with.

Alternator Hound is my default MP. Especially with the 3D printed accessory kit that a long begone Seibertronian made me years ago. Unfortunately the plastic bar that hold the seats got fragile and brittle over the years so it broke in two. Fortunately, Gorilla glue did the job to fix it.

It amazes me that the MPMs are the most affordable right now, and they have still put out some good quality MPs too for the most part.

IKR? They've die cast in them, lots of details, complex engineering, and paint galore. Yet many are sold at only HALF the price of similarly sized and built G1 and BW MP.

I'm looking forward MPM Starscream a lot because I know it will be amazing and affordable.

First, wrong thread.
Second, your seller is a poor liar and a fraud.
At that price, just import the official one.

Nah.

The author is actually arguing in favor of more Masterpiece and is basically calling out the incessant whining so-called "fans" do with each release.
