Seibertronian Cyberpath has led us to a new image of Masterpiece Inferno from Figure King Magazine. This page shows off some of Inferno's alternate heads, his front and back in robot mode, and even how they accomplish hiding the ladder! Taking ladder cues from Combiner Wars/Unite Warriors Defensor full-body-reach-around, the ladder folds up all nice and neat and goes right inside the back of the figure right under the head. Truly an awesome idea. Check out the scan as well as a close-up of Inferno's Peek-a-boo ladder and let us know what you think in the comments section, and as always stay tuned to Seibertron.com for all your latest Transformers News and Galleries.

Easy:

- I am not fond of the lack of detailing. I understand everything being flat on a cartoon model but on a toy it just looks off to me.
- Speaking of being too cartoon accurate, I am not too fond of the alt mode's sides. Its clearly the arms and I dont know how it will look from an overhead view. Of course the G1 toy couldnt be a perfect fire truck and the show model imitated it, but now that means the MP has a very dodgy alt mode.

Are you whining about the vehicle mode on purpose?

It's perfectly cartoon accurate, and that's what the MP line is all about. You werent complaining about Primal's gorilla mode if I recall.

Also, this is pretty damn close to the original truck anyway.

Out. Of. The. Park! They really nailed this one, he looks perfect to me all around.

That's a shorter hose truck, not the bigger ladder truck with the extra tires in back. ;) This is as close as we'll likely find.

I would like to have some idea of scale.

I was turned off from Ocular Max's as soon as I found out he was no bigger than Ironhide in alt-mode. A fire truck should not be the same height as a small van.

I was considering taking a chance on X-Transbots' because the fire truck was about the right size and the detail was supposed to be real-world accurate, but I canceled that as soon as I saw the ladder trick on the official version.

Now my only reservation is the size, but since I very rarely convert them to save wear, I suppose it's not a dealbreaker, but I would like to know the alt-mode wouldn't look ridiculous next to the others if I did decide to display them that way for whatever reason.

But... that's not just show-accuracy, it's also toy accuracy:

Whether cartoon or toy, that's just how Inferno's altmode is. ;)

Thats what I said. The animation model was based on the toy, so with the MP referring to the show model, it send up being accurate to the toy as well.

Maybe Inferno scanned a fire truck whose main body wasn't yet done being manufactured. :P

Looking at that Figure King page I feel like I'm looking at stills from the cartoon.. except this is an actual object. It's so spot on. Love this line.

(But where I'm going to put Inferno and Grapple? Need more shelf space!) (And now I want a "properly" retooled Red Alert even more.)

Do you guys think 3P was a factor in Takara's character choice or that it was just a coincidence? Could this be Takara's way of eliminating the "competition?" Like "there are three 3P infernos. None of them has a magic ladder, or the ability to turn their heads with the wings, or interchanging heads and bumpers. And none are as accurate. So the next time a wannabe MP comes along be patient and wait for the real deal."

Waiting for them to one up the 3P Megatrons personally. ;)
