I hope this is a subtle hint at what an upcoming masterpiece figure would be. Cause there really needs to be a new Reflector toy, and the one that comes with Skrapnel just ain't cutting it.

That is super cool. Technically, it's an in scale MP Perceptor if you go off alt mode :HEADHURTS:

Thats a BIG box for such a tiny item isnt it? As much as I like MP5, this isnt enough to sway me.

while im confident i can find the camera seperately, im just looking for a reason to buy this MP05. reflector might be the clincher.

I'm all about the exclusive accessories (vector sigma, anyone?), but this strangely holds zero appeal to me...

OMG, everyone, you are willing to pay for this old terrible transformer to get a diecast camera? That's a special kind of stupid. All this is is a way to tempt people to buy official, not third party. TakaraTomy, if you want me to buy Masterpiece Megatron, get the v2 Megatron out. A simple concept pic would stop your customers leaving you for the X-Transbots product.

The figure alone is worth the price, the added bonus figure just sweetens the pot! Very nice... My plan is to display my original MP5 in gun mode and this gold pimp taking taking a picture of king grimlock sitting on his throne... Playa!

Oh man, that sounds so BOSS!

Oh and does anyone know what MP 05 was selling originally when it first came out (including import premium at US retail) ?

no one said they were buying this for the camera. its a bonus. MP05 might be terrible in your opinion. and show of hands, who said getting this gold megs fulfills their needs and doesnt want a V2?

i like the camera. i like MP05. im an MP completist. so are you calling me stupid?

Just curious, as an MP completionist, do you get both the Hasbro and Takara versions. Like Soundwave for instance, with his different coloured visors.

Also, I didnt realize the camera was Die Cast, thats great!

I still wish they'd done him with a gold torso and arms like the appearence he had in some of the Marvel comics (which I REALLY need to read, especially the UK ones- Target: 2006 I know is widely considered one of the best Transformers comics ever) but I do like this deco. Sadly I can't justify buying this mold- not because I dislike the look, which I actually kinda dig, but because he's fragile and scary to transform (or so I'm told). A shame as the gold looks surprisingly good.

Also the die-cast Reflector is an awesome pack-in bonus and if it ever came out separately I'd buy it. For some reason I always loved Reflector even though I though "applianceformers" were daft. The guy needs more love.

i dont really buy the hasbro MP's unless theyre different (enough) from the takara version, or completely different/new like acid storm. and theres still a handful of MP's im missing. like the dead MP01 and ghost MP03.

I have MP 03 Ghost and he is so very fragile with that plastic that I ended up breaking his arm soon after I got him. He still rocks in Jet mode and looks phenominal with that plastic so it's not a total loss. But fair warning, this fagil figure becomes even more fragile.

I'm a 'post-MP08 completionist'.

I pick up absolutely everything MP-related that Hasbro and Takara put out, and if it's an MP10 mold or later, I do so in doubles.

Right now that only thing I'm missing is that Bathing Ape MP10... I want it so bad...

The only thing MP-05 is good for is alt mode display and even that is crap without the stock and silencer. Maybe you can still find that third party accessory kit for it somewhere. It really does make all the difference. You are right, me not liking it is my opinion, however the reason I don't like it is all based in fact. Fact 1. It is fragile and can barely hold itself up. Fact 2. The fusion canon is massively over-sized in gun and robot mode. Fact 3. He is vastly over balanced with the gun arm that he is so hard to get into any kind of pose. Fact 4. The head sculpt is terrible. It looks nothing like Megatron, though the character had very little inconsistency with his head design in the show. It still never looked like that. Fact 5. The legs are so thin that it looks like this is the skeleton of Megatron. Fact 6. It takes so long to transform him due to so much kibble. Getting the arms out of the chest is so scary. Fact 7. He is prone to "cosmic rust" damage to his feet.

You really can tell that the MP-05 mold was rushed out of the door. Why they didn't allow more time for the design? I'm an MP collector too but I only buy repaints that are different characters. Special colours or transparent plastic versions aren't worth the cash that can be spent on other, new characters.

That green MP-10 is indeed great looking. However, that 1000$ price thag gave me a heart attack!

Also, Will, about MP-03G being fragile, you were either unlucky or clumsy. I transformed mine at least 10 times back and forth and he never broke. No stress marks either. Because you paid yours for so cheap because he was pre-owned, maybe the previous owner IS the clumsy one and he "pre-broke" that arm for you.

I am not that clumsy. I am sure it was loosened by the previous owner. Case in point, my MP Megatron was new and I transformed him a bunch of times, without the instructions and he is still standing strong, as the picture below will show.

Oh, and to the guy who pointed out all the factual flaws (though some are opinions, like the point of view on the legs for instance), can you really tell me this doesn't look awesome?

I f**ken love MP 05!
