Deciding now to whether to sell off my tt mp-10

But I bet It no longer comes out of back like the gimmick on mp-10 which I thought was kinda neat.

My main concern is the rising prices on mpís if this goes over $300 Iíll have to seriously think about whether I get 2 or not

I donít care for gimmicks when it distorts the proportion of the weapons.
This is why my mp-10 doesnít hold the foldable gun.

Saw the latest pictures and I have to say, it looks like it has very thin legs.

I thought they had just reused Masterpiece Hot Rod's legs.

Reminds me a bit of MP-1 (particularly with the slight kibble on the lower back):




Truck mode looks better than MP-1 though.

V3 make mp-10 looks superior by first impression pictures.

Things that bug me.

the legs looks way to thin.
The head looks a bit big for the body >still ok
the gun looks way bad. (I take it back the folding gun is better) sigh....
I know is early days, but I am afraid it might be a pass for me.

I think the picture was altered so it may not be as bad as it looks but.....I dunno.

I love my MP-10 to bits, so this is unlikely to supplant it. But Iíll keep an open mind until we get pictures of it that arenít ridiculously blurry. Because premature adjudication is a scourge.

Is there going to be a displayed prototype at the Tokyo Show at some point or are these blurry photos going to be all we have for the time beimg?

OP v3 concerns me at this stage.

- The bot proportions seem exaggerated like the reference material was all taken from low angles (big calves, long legs, etc..).

- Worse is the cab, it has a thousand seams in it like chug Ironhide on crack. At least this OP can be a dark-red to hide them a little (unlike Megatron). But considering very little of the cab is visible in bot mode, I wonder if this going to be an enjoyable transformation or a panel fold-a-thon.


On the flipside, Iíve had no concerns with BW Megatron. Yes, he has a fair bit of a folded backpack but he looks amazing in both modes.
