Godbomber's incredibly simple, and it'll have a Masterpiece budget. How badly could they possibly screw it up?

Among other things. Like, PMOP seems like a straightforward slam dunk, and there have been two CHUG budget attempts at modernizing the concept between TR and POTP, and the later POTP take even has a transforming standalone robot out of the cab. The results here have been less than stellar due to a number of factors.

Godbomber should be an easier time of it, but it's rough to take things for granted at this point.

I am a bit confused on the pricing, but I imagine it will be a mix of the accessories and many small intricate parts that have one concealed flaw that only becomes apparent mid-transformation that winds up with its own note on TfWiki.

Seems that MPM-15 will be announced Friday. I'm assuming Brawl. If so, really hope he comes with Frenzy to complete the cast from the first movie.

Edit: Also, it appears MP/MPG Jinrai just went up for pre-order on Pulse. Yes, he's listed as Jinrai. Wasn't expecting that. Feels weird.

Price is comparable with Amazon JP too - as of right now it's only a $1 or $2 difference (if you have Premium Pulse for free shipping) compared to Amazon JP cost + shipping.

I guess the next MPM will reveal if it's really just a merge with MP or what some have claimed as 'always a combiner'. I think it's unlikely that any company would limit its options that much, I expect we're just seeing a merge of semi-redundant lines into one.

MPM is the Movieverse line. You're thinking of MPG.

It's a translation error. Amazon Japan also listed it the same as they phonetically machine translate other languages, rather than check existing entries for the same products already at Amazon in other countries.

I've seen TFs called some rather NSFW things in my time...

So I just discovered that I never opened my MPM Blackout. Could have sworn I had, but I guess I was just remembering fiddling with SS Blackout. According to my account records on Pulse, it arrived in August of 22, which was right after our basement flooded. Guess he arrived and went straight into storage since I had bigger problems to deal with at the time.

Anyway, now that we're bringing stuff back in, I discovered he was still sealed and opened him up. Turns out he's missing a piece. It's a small panel in the middle of the alt mode's underside that would go somewhere in his waist in robot mode.

Kinda late to request any replacement parts from Pulse, but at least it's not too big of a deal in alt mode and virtually invisible in robot mode. I was just hoping to verify though. I'm not missing anything in robot mode by not having it, right? It doesn't, say, tab into something else to provide some sort of structural support, or help lock something into place, right? Seems like it's just a little panel hanging out behind other stuff without contributing anything?

IIRC it tabs in robot mode and as you can tell yours is missing the pin rod to keep it in place. Mine is in copter mode too, so I can't provide anymore info than that.
