MPM-10 has obvious everything sticking out of the jet mode.
If you like this MPM nonsense, hey, good for you. If I want a halfassed toy, I will stick with the Black Mamba at a third of the price.

I do this display often but obviously, the underside face the wall.
Also, I can forgive a jetformer to be a total mess under. As long that it's not sticking out too much from the side and nothing is visible above.
Those who want perfect jets better stick with bots that have the vehicle mode as top priority like the classic Gobots from the 1980's.

Well look, with Optimus Prime, it turned out that the ROTF Leader was the better toy than the MPM. For this, I think both will be as good in their own way. I might still preffer the HFTD for how elegant the undercarriage is handled. it was there, but it was smoothe enough.
As for the gray vs blue discussion, it's a problem with the lighting. Grey (just like black) is always a mixture of a darker tint of either blue, green or purple, because there is no such thing as actual black in pigmentation. So in this case, the grey comes from a blue pigment and can reflect differently given the lightsource and accompanying manipulation of the photo.

Anyway, something tells me the "blue" is more of a trick of the lighting or hue settings. You know, "what color is the dress?"

I want it, but I thought there would be more sheen or shine to it if I'm being clear enough. I think I just expected more of a shiny metal look in anticipation of the reveal. I kept thinking of all of the sunshine that Michael Bay incorporated in those films and how the light was constantly playing off the Bots and Cons.

The robot is the main attraction. The vehicle here looks fine as is, and clearly you don't need to display with the hand weapons attached, thats just a place to store them for vehicle mode if you so wish.
No offence at all.
It's a valid way to display the jets. They usually stand up pretty well! However, the Movie jet cannot stand up like this because of the way it's made. It dosent have a "tripod".

$150 is actually better than I was expecting, but still a lot more than I've ever spent on a Transformer before. We'll have to see, I'm excited to see more pictures/videos in the meantime!

In what sense?
