If the SDCC Primal will be getting a regular Japanese release, as it looks, cool.

Well, that explains some of the price then.

Wasn't expecting Hound right now but I like the looks of him so far.

Anime Wheeljack is the only one of these "MP+" redecos that I actually like. It's just too bad they didn't tool up a shoulder launcher that actually looks like it came from the cartoon, if they're going to go all-in on show accuracy.

That does go a long way towards explaining the price. That thing is, what, the size of a CW combiner? Bigger? Stuff like this really just underscores how crazy it is to try and stick unrelentingly to show scale. Can you imagine if they ever tried to do the designs from the later seasons? If season one Megatron is this big, Optimal Optimus would be, what, approaching Titan size? Bigger than Armada Unicron for sure.

My suspicion is that MPBW will be the core Maximal crew along with Megatron and Waspinator. Maybe Tarantulas and Blackarachnia, since quite a bit can be reused from one to the other.

As it is, it's really just the first season stuff that's noticeably different from the toys, right? I don't recall Optimal Optimus having a great disparity between the animation model or the toy. I mean, they can make super-fancy versions of anything, but the new driving force behind the MP figures is replicating the robot animation model, so making a triple digit figure of something that, at a glance, isn't much different from the previous figure seems like a poor choice. But, if they think people will buy it...

That must be huge, if BW Megs is anything to go by. I'll be sticking with the original. OPtimal Optimus isn't a particularly great figure anyway.

So they've managed to make a G1 Ultra Magnus that transforms into RiD Ultra Magnus now?

Takara legends big power... powered?... whatever it is, color pictures of it. Apparently they're doing the same thing they did with grand maximus and want a certain number of preorders before committing to production, which is reasonable for such a goofy figure. I do think the mold reuse is pretty clever, and I do like the molds used anyway. Sure, put me down for one to encourage them to keep revisiting the good weird stuff* as much as these particular figures.

*the bad weird stuff would be the likes of kiss players.

Thumbs up

Impressive to see the extent of the changes. It's the sort of thing it'd be nice to have in a Japanese line pseudo-G1 CHUG ensemble, but a bit hard to justify the space/price.
