@  tffan01 : (24 May 2016 - 07:40 AM)

I think beetleman might have a mental disability of some sorts. I'm not saying he definitely has but if he really does, you guys should be a little kinder to him. That would also explain why he says he is a 19 year old but his parents are overprotective. I'm not saying he definitely has but it's a possibility. Or he's just a 8 year old that says he is an adult.

Snow doesn't have feet. It's just piles of frozen water.

you wish, bud. let's see those bastards operate under six feet of snow

@  Foffy the Sheep : (21 May 2016 - 09:28 PM)

What I got out of that was that Canada really wants to have a plague of locusts unleashed upon them.

@  Locoman : (21 May 2016 - 09:25 PM)

y'see, under canadian law all broadcasting corporations operate under a mandate that at least 40% of the content they broadcast must be Canadian content. Naturally, this applies to kid's cartoon channels as well, which is a fairly niche market these days. So animators slap together very cheaply animated flash cartoons and air them in the daytime hours to fill the quota. Hence endless reruns of Johnny Test, Almost Naked Animals, etc.

@  Patchouli Kn... : (21 May 2016 - 09:25 PM)

Chaos is bad for business, y'see.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (21 May 2016 - 09:17 PM)

You really want to be responsible for the creation of giant radioactive moose?

@  Foffy the Sheep : (21 May 2016 - 09:13 PM)

Well, I didn't wanna have to do this, but it looks like we have to nuke Canada.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (21 May 2016 - 09:12 PM)

Johnny Test isn't even the worst of it? Mother of God...

@  Locoman : (21 May 2016 - 09:04 PM)

But in Canada, Johnny Test is just one of many terrible flash cartoons. It's not even the worst one.

@  ShadowMan024 : (21 May 2016 - 08:49 PM)

Pft. Cartoon Network aired Johnny Test TEN times a day for a loooooong time.

@  The Doctor Who : (21 May 2016 - 08:01 PM)

@  Foffy the Sheep : (21 May 2016 - 07:52 PM)

My condolences. It's always sad to hear of the death of a loved one...or someone's sanity.

@  Locoman : (21 May 2016 - 07:44 PM)

Back in the days when I watched TFP on TV, they sometimes aired it six or seven times a day.

MP Ultramagnus concept, based on ver.2 Convoy with G1 Ultramugnus parts.


Make of it what you will. Looks like at least one designer is considering how they'd make the figure (by slapping some G1 Magnus trailer parts on the new MP Convoy).

Also it appears that Convoy's truck mode is to scale with the Alternity this time as opposed to the Binaltech (roughly).

Cool! I guess releasing the new Convoy mold in white as Ultra Magnus is inevitable. But if he came straight with his trailer that combines into his super mode, it would make the remakes of Masterpiece figures in smaller scale worth it.

Yeah I agree that it looks a little rough. 10 years ago this would have been amazing, but in comparison to City Commander that looks like a pile of crap. How about less G1 slavishness and more updated aesthetics and modern engineering?

I'm sure if they did ever make one, it'd be more complex than having a cut-up G1 Magnus pieces slapped on the new Masterpiece Convoy. icon-fire.gif

With other lines I would agree, but this is Masterpiece we're talking about.
Its very purpose is to be a slavish to G1 as possible.

It's the 25+ year old Magnus armor photoshopped to a high end collectors toy. Ofcourse it looks like crap.

I think QH is missing the fact that this is just a rough concept. Sure the general idea will be the same, but I'm confident IF they made one it'd be better in execution than what we're seeing here. Hopefully his blue would be darker too, I want one in cartoon colors!

I'd rather have a Masterpiece Ultra Magnus that takes hints from the Titaniums figure and transforms directly from vehicle to armored robot. Mind you, I realize that's never going to happen while they can just recolor a Prime body and (maybe) add new parts.

I have no interest in the new MP Prime since he's too big to look right with the CHUGS. But I'd definately want any armored up version like Magnus or PM Prime.


-ZacWilliam, the armored up forms get more leeway from me for being a bit oversized...

Robot mode is all that matters to me as far as scale and at MP Grimlock/Rodimus height he's WAY too tall to fit with the CHUGGERS. Sadly.


-ZacWilliam, it feels a bit odd to be asking for a MP to be smaller, but there ya go. If I wanted a MP Prime not in scale with the Chugs, well, I've already got that, don't I. icon-hotrod.gif

Alternity cars are 1/32, and while Classics Autobot Cars are non-scale, they seem to generally conform to being about 1/36. If MP10 does scale correctly to Alternity cars, Zac's probably right about it being on the large side to work with Classics. Of course, to my eye that comparison photo makes Prime's vehicle mode look a little small relative to that Alternity, so I'm actually not any help at all. icon-waspy.gif

I'm sure MP Optimus is definitely in scale with the likes of Ultra Silverbolt and Onslaught.

The most recent tweet indicates that fan response will determine if it gets made or not.

I kinda have the feeling it will be since if they don't make it a 3rd party will, and thus Takara would lose out on possible sales.

I wonder how much of a price increase Magnus would be if any.
Prime seems to come with a lot of extra stuff, but is all that stuff equal to a transforming trailer?

I postulated in an earlier thread that making a smaller MP Convoy opens the door for them to do armored modes. The new exhorbitant price point likely is testing the waters. Is this really just G1 parts photoshopped onto MP10? They seem different, making me hope that an actual release wouldn't look as bad as the photo.

If MP10 comes with Spike that fits in the cab, maybe MP Ultra Magnus would come with Sparkplug.
How is it that we put man on the moon before we figured out it would be a good idea to put wheels on luggage?

And what's going on with MP10's head in that photo? Looks like it was replaced with a marble. I like how they flip the legs to make them look different. Looking at the knee joint on MP10, it appears to move equally in both directions.
