Landcross got more character focus in Victory, even if said focus just boiled down to "rookie Combiner".



Ah I see, I missed out a bit.

What's more ugly duckling is it's price.



Indeed. Some most of the prices for the Japanese exclusive series bots are insane. To be honest, very few G1 combiners still hold up visually.

G1 Defensor and Abobinus still look amazing even today. Superior, Bruticus, and Computron too. Devastator remain great looking despite being a fragile combiner.

However, Menasor look pretty daff with its overlarge torso.
Those are the only ones that come to mind for now.

Piranacon always comes to mind as one that still looks really good. Menasor, the opposite. Mostly I find the latter combiners are the weaker designs long term, like Monstructor or the other Takara exclusive ones. Others I think look bad in comparison to their later interpretations. In that respect, Devastator is one I would class as one of the bad ones. But different strokes for different folks.

I got a decent deal on MP-27, so I bought him. Finally arrived in the mail today, and man, I wasn’t sure if like him that much, he didn’t necessarily “wow” me through pics online. But he’s got a surprisingly fun transformation, and such presence on the display. Glad I got this guy.

Had to Google it.
So, Ironhide, eh? I always found his "bouncy" butt made out of a pair of truck wheels to be a hilarious and genius design choice.
For reasons I'd rather get Ratchet, but I hate the fact that he's 50% more expensive than Ironhide. Was MP Ratchet an exclusive of some kind?

I've mentioned it here and there but the Ironhide/Ratchet Masterpiece figures are everything I want in a non-leader Masterpiece. I accept a Prime or a Megatron (or even a Galvatron or Rodimus) being a bit more intricate and expensive. But for a mainline MP figure, this is my standard. It's got heft, it's got an entertaining transformation, it's sturdy and I don't feel like I'm going to break it, alt mode and robot mode hit enough cartoon accuracy for me. They're great.

When I got Wheeljack just a few weeks after Ironhide, I was disappointed. Sure, he looked great, but he's smaller, all plastic, and just kinda....eh in comparison. I did go back and mess around with him recently and appreciated him a lot more but still not as pleasing as Ironhide.

Yeah MP-20 is just kinda ok. Nothing really spectacular happening during transformation. Not bad, but not amazing.

FYI, if any of y’all got the Toyhax Labels for MP-44, the license plates work very nicely on the other MP cars. Especially MP-27 here, who’s prominent license plate area is definitely a little plain out of the box. I liked the Japanese-style plate since Ironhide’s alt-mode is very obviously Japanese. Maybe that’s racist of me, I hope not, but whatever.
