Its ok but not great. its slightly lower than retail. Up to you really. You pretty much save the tax from buying it in store. If that sounds like a deal to you, then jump on it. I am waiting for him to be further discounted. Also, this thread is about optimus. If you want to talk more of Bee, go here: transformers-movie-masterpiece-mpm-3-bumblebee-thread-t108751.php

MPM-4 Optimus Prime "correct" hood transformation.

Postby Cybertronius Primus » Fri Jul 28, 2017 4:32 pm

Courtesy of YouTuber emgo316, there is now a video of a (tedious) way of transforming MPM-4 Optimus Prime into his truck mode ,without modding, so that the bonnet is flush. Most of the time. :D

Perhaps posting the actual video would have been helpful?



Seems its just a very very specific way of getting things tabbed in. From the doors to the hood panels.

Haven't done much with him, other than open the box, and won't be able to play till tomorrow.


First impression?


Damn, he is pretty.


Image

On a happy note, while he still has several plastic tiebands holding him in, he also has cardboard 'strings' to make storing him back in the box much more safe and secure. Something very much lacking with 'bee.

It works, until you try and tab the cab to the legs, then it promptly pops out of alignment again. I'm on the verge of throwing this figure against the wall.

Looks like Takara version of MPM Optimus will have some more paint apps, especially in the feet!

For the price of these figures, having to modify in any way is 10,000% unacceptable.


He is a gorgeous figure, but the tabs on him are not strong enough to hold against the tolerances of the figure.

Also, I've watched many, many reviews on him in the last 2 days. Still can't get it to hold 100%. Something always pops loose. It is insanely frustrating.

Emgo found a way to tab it all in flush without modding. You have to do it in a very specific order, very carefully and not in the orser of instructions. Id post the video but I'm on my phone and can't post links easy. But it is possible without mods.

Sorry. I would have posted the video along with it but I'm new to seibertron and am still figuring things out.

Yes, I know. That video is posted in another thread. I watched it, followed it, got the hood flush, but as soon as you try to connect it with the rest of truck, it pops out again.

Or the side panels do.

Or the legs do.

And when you go to make it all flush, BOOM! Hood pops out. This figure makes MP-36 and ROTF Leader Prime look like two of the easiest figures ever made. He'll, the doors on Binaltech Grimlock are less frustrating.

Ah ok. I don't have the figure, so didn't know it still has issues. Man, that's rubbish. A premium figure like this shouldn't have problems like this.

Weapon: Photon Cannon
I don't usually have negative things to say about Transformers, but MPM-4 is AWFUL!! If you haven't purchased it already, my suggestion would be to save your money. Even following emgo's instructions, the slightest movement and several tabs pop out. Also, if you happen to get the windshield/hood aligned correctly, there doesn't seem to be a way of connecting the upper and lower parts of the exhaust pipes as they are horribly misaligned.

Problems so far:

Truck mode:
  • Windshield/hood alignment
  • Exhaust pipe alignment
  • Stress marks in red plastic (behind front wheel fenders on engine cover) after only 3 transformations
  • The top of the legs don't tab properly into black rear bumper
Robot mode:
  • Red chest/abdomen piece (passenger side) doesn't tab properly


Masterpiece name, masterpiece price... NOT masterpiece quality! :-x

Is this not the same version that just came out? I thought the mpm optimus released in July was it. Takara and hasbros name are on my box so I assumed that that was it?
Looking to swap a takara Titan class fortress maximus head for a Hasbro US retail Titan fortress maximus head.

Would alternatively buy a Hasbro US retail fortress maximus head on its own if anyone had one for sale.

PM me.
