I wish they'd relase a remastered version that fixed the audio and included at least had an option to have the text crawl rather than the credits at the start.

@  Telly : (25 September 2016 - 09:27 PM)

tryin to buy the movie from amazon for $20-ish. the price of it has been fluctuating like crazy. not a day has gone by that it hasnt dropped to one price and then gone back up a few hours later. never seen a price fluctuate so much

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 07:57 PM)

Then again, a lot of versions of the movie had pretty bad sound quality, even the most recent blu-rays mess it up in places, so it's not as much our fault if we misheard stuff.

@  Arazyr : (25 September 2016 - 07:28 PM)

When I first heard it, half of it may as well have been in a foreign language, for all I could make out. (Of course, I can say that about most music...)

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 07:14 PM)

I can't remember entirely, and I can't "hear" anything but the actual lyrics now, but I remember "I am born to hurt you, I'll break the boundless sky" as how my brain parsed the first words.

@  Nevermore : (25 September 2016 - 07:01 PM)

So what did you hear?

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 06:39 PM)

I almost completely misinterpreted the lyrics for that song for ages, and when I did find out what they were I thought my idea of the lyrics was better.

@  Nevermore : (25 September 2016 - 06:29 PM)

So apparently the 2016 remake of "Instruments of Destruction" is out. I'm still waiting for an Amazon download to become available, but the clips I heard thus far sound cool. They're using the uncensored lyrics!

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...

If vehicle mode is roughly in scale with Alternity, then the Masterpiece Optimus is actually too small for CHUGS. icon-waspy.gif

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.

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.

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.
