Damn it Amazon.... I wish they hadn't pulled their original listings from MONTHS AGO. I thought perhaps they weren't *going* to carry it (or was it an exclusive for them?). Ended up going with BBTS but now I've spent $50 more than I needed to (with shipping -_-). I guess it's a new age for MPs, and perhaps holding off and letting the dust settle is the smarter idea now.

As far as next Movie MP, I'd really like to see Jazz. Did his Human Alliance figure ever get an "MP" treatment? That mold was so perfect.

I watched Amazon pull their listing, right as I was going to pre-order. I tried navigating the Japanese Amazon site, only to find out they won't ship to the USA on pre-orders.
Right as this came out in Japan I managed to convince my visiting uncle to pick one up for me, and I should hopefully be getting it today. Only to find that Amazon has reposted the listing...

The only benefit to this is the fact that my uncle might still give me free shipping, and I might still get it sooner than if I had ordered it off Amazon.

I’m honestly glad that I waited. He’s on like TFsource and BBTS for $145! That’s a little too much for me at the moment, but I think the $100 is alright. Hope he goes on sale eventually like Barricade

As long as Amazon keeps him in stock and doesn’t scalp with resellers. Half tempted to ask bbts for some adjustment in store credit (but I assume their stock came from overseas, hence the price jump) -_-“

Well, came home from work and he's sitting on the table in a power supply box, but he's here. So, something rather interesting is if you get the Takara/Japanese release where the Hasbro logo is, in the picture above, there is a Transformers 35th Anniversary stamp. I only mention this because I don't think I saw it on the early box pictures.


Otherwise, I'll just pretend the toes that stick out are one of those extra tall bumpers on trucks that have the built in steps for loading and unloading the bed. Yep, that's what they are, and not kibble.

Are you sure about this? I have MP-43 on Pre-order from them with a US address and all is good here.

Also guys, I think a lot of you bought the Takara Release (identical to the Hasbro one) on BBTs/TFsource and such, and this is the official stateside Hasbro release, hence the money differences.

It's why I waited for this, I knew we would get it here somehow. But I was expecting HTS, considering it was supposed to be an HTS exclusive. And it's been so odd too cause he was supposed to come out last August and Amazon had pre-orders up then that disappeared not long after

It wouldn't, at least where I live...
My mailing has been messed up since the USPS tried to close my post office, which removed my address from almost all USPS databases, so most stores and the like often claim that my mailing address doesn't exist. :HEADHURTS:

That might have been the issue...

I would be REALLY curious to know if someone has figured out the whole shoulder-looseness issue. Is there a tab solution or transformation step missing that gets the entire figure to come together solidly in the upper body? If not, this is a hard pass for me, which is disappointing, since I have considered the MPM's to be more cost-effective to collect than the MP's (reasonably true statement, and enough people seem to hate on the Bayverse styling that I find them HEAVILY discounted each Thanksgiving). The QC on every figure I've ordered has been questionable or outright disastrous though, with the exception of MPM-7, so unless I see Hastak turn a corner here I'm probably done with MPM for the foreseeable future.

I'm either lucky or doing something wrong (don't discount that as possible!) but I don't have any problems with the bot mode.

Getting this thing into truck mode is a tabby, panel massage disaster mess of frustration, but at least it can get there unlike MPM-4. The instructions for the front of the truck are awful, watch a video. It still won't make it fun to transform, or help you get every tab in place securely (especially the back of the roof), but it will save you some time. I find it telling that the stock photos above also don't have truck mode completely secure.

Got mine yesterday. I've literally only taken him out of the box, and have yet to even try to properly tab up his robot mode.


I will say he is a lot bigger and heavier than I was expecting. That was a pleasant surprise.

Great to see the price has now dropped to $81.98! Since I bought him 8 days ago from Amazon for $99.99, I called customer service and they gave me a store credit for $18.01 :APPLAUSE:

This figure is larger and heavier than I imagined with amazing detail that's much more impressive in hand than viewing online. I'm glad to add it to my collection at this great price!

I haven't even attempted to change this piece of shit into truck mode yet, and I'm ready to throw it into the wall. :HEADHURTS: :michaelbay:

Why? Trying to get his shoulders to lock in, and the folded side panels do not clip into his wrists like they are supposed to.


So very frustrating, as its a great looking mold with excellent size. :(

RE the shoulders, did you try the ScottyP method from the last podcast?

You'll need to go to the MPM-6 section of this podcast to listen to the description proper:

https://www.seibertron.com/transformers ... oys/42750/

Basically, MPM-6 Ironhide has shoulders that are not even, the right sits higher than the left as that is how he appeared in the movies, with a strange slight hunched stance. Once you figure out the shoulders are A-symmetrical in appearance and in inner tooling, it is supposed to help a lot

For me, it's more an issue of his tabs not having any ability to hold. Plug one in, 3 others pop out.
