I think this would have made a good Con with the colour scheme - kinda like Bug Bite.

But then we never get to see many emergency vehicles as Cons sadly.

because 'white' isn't a 'colour'

That would have made the toy even cooler.

You must have a cod to make an issue out of it. Before people argue here and there and finally is clear. It has no relevance in numbering.

End of the day ďsuck it up ď or donít buy or use some white out or go extreme and remake the box but you know is not original so? Is still a suck up. Fan no fan what you going to do? Head down to Takara and use a gun and tell them to change it? Lol

Takara can put a big X you will still buy it if you want it.

Just like that long life award logo, I didnít like it but still? I bought whichever mp I needed in the end.

You wonít be happy to know the stuff up that now there is a mp-36+ but hey isnít plus meant for anime accurate? But is metal now? Ur.... yeah no relevance.

Did you seriously not get that this was a flippant, good-natured and humorous comment? Noone was even remotely going at 20 paces with dueling pistols here so why make something out of nothing?

There was no animosity here, just a discussion largely between MEEEGGGAAATTTRRROOONNN!!! and myself about why some figures have letters on the end and why some have individual numbers. Neither of us needed to be right, which MEEEGGGAAATTTRRROOONNN!!! even made a joke about with the clip of the Simpsons he uploaded. Why needlessly cause drama and spoil what was otherwise a perfectly pleasant discussion. Just like noone is making you buy a figure, noone is making you participate in the discussion. If you don't care about the minutia, then seriously, just scroll past it.

Why ruin a pleasant moment?

Except that no one in the discussion you are referring to hated the fact that it was or was not numbered a certain way and I didn't see anyone wanting to boycott buying the figure because of how it was numbered - that was just you projecting your assumptions onto others. People were simply discussing why the figure would have a separate number rather than a letter suffix - and doing so calmly, civilly and inquisitively too I might add.

Which is relevant here, because?

Again, relevance?

Why would I be bothered by the + designation situation when if anything, it's simply clarified it and MP-36+ does match with the intention of MP-14+? When MP-14+ was out, it was to create an anime accurate version in light of the fact that the deco on MP-14 was more toy accurate. Likewise where it's happening with MP-17+, again, toy accurate figure getting an anime accurate release. Now with MP-36+ we're talking about anime accurate figure getting a toy accurate release. In every single case, the + line has always clearly been about keeping both anime and toy accurate collectors happy and getting extra money out of completists.

So how is the + line not being consistent by making the + versions of Shockwave and Megatron Toy accurate, to complement the fact that the original releases were anime accurate?

I get you were trying to bait mere here, but unfortunately for you, your read on the discussion you're reacting to, could not be more off-base.

If by number you mean price, then yes...
Exploding Primal in a Stasis Pod's very valid point aside, philby, why do you think that a discussion on why a box is numbered one way or another, automatically means it's going to be boycotted? After all, people have been arguing over which one is Rumble and which one is Frenzy for years, but last I checked, those figures have sold just fine in every incarnation they have had.

New images at TFW2005 confirm the new gun can work as an arm cannon.
Also confirms that this thing isn't cheap - ¥16200.

Yep... more expensive and yet less accessories than Sunstreaker. Must be really limited.

................and MP-18B, and Loud Pedal etc etc, the diaclone leaning re-paints always come down in price eventually.
I will be definitely waiting for about 12 months on this guy.
