People forget the whole phrase. It's "Great minds thing alike, but fools rarely differ."

@  Nevermore : (21 February 2019 - 08:49 PM)

The German version is very straightforward: "Two idiots, one idea."

@  Nevermore : (21 February 2019 - 08:49 PM)

English: "Great minds think alike".

@  Nevermore : (21 February 2019 - 08:49 PM)

Here's an example of a phrase that's charmingly positive in English but self-deprecating in German:

It's not "Optiplush"... it's "Softimus Prime"

@  Ashley : (19 February 2019 - 08:19 PM)

I've got the two plushes from the first movie, they're great

@  Shrug : (19 February 2019 - 08:00 PM)

Still have mine, although Optiplush Prime is kind of discolored

@  Shrug : (19 February 2019 - 07:59 PM)

They came out around the time of the first movie with the big merch push, but they were distinctly G1 and everything else wasnt, IIRC

@  wonko the sane? : (19 February 2019 - 01:41 PM)

I did not even know those things were a thing. I guess they didn't do very well cause they didn't make more of them.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 February 2019 - 01:25 PM)

Pfft, Hasbro did that 12 years ago with Slumblebee and Optiplush Prime

@  Xellos : (19 February 2019 - 12:37 PM)

Well, this past Christmas I did see licensed plush Transformers that went from their robot to vehicle mode by turning inside out just like popples.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 February 2019 - 12:02 PM)

Why DIDN'T transformers make plushes ala popples?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Design in mixed media and make him out of actual flannel.

@  Lancer : (18 February 2019 - 09:24 PM)

Make his fur a red and black flannel pattern

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2019 - 09:10 PM)

Bonus points if you can work in a red and black flannel pattern on his chest plate.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2019 - 09:09 PM)

Might as well make it cliched. Lumberjack moose male and aristocratic deer female.

@  TriBlurr : (18 February 2019 - 08:16 PM)

Or their aristocratic deer.

@  TriBlurr : (18 February 2019 - 08:10 PM)

Thinking of making a pair of moose Transformer OCs, male and female. Thier a lovey dovy pair of lumberjacks

i just checked my past tfsource orders, and theres no sales tax charge

@  Arazyr : (18 February 2019 - 11:16 AM)

They haven't (yet, at least) on the stuff I currently have in my Stack. Haven't had them ship anything for a while, though, so I don't know if they will when I do...

@  Benbot : (18 February 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Does TFSource charge sales tax?

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2019 - 09:47 AM)

That's because, once upon a time, the people whom owned the animals weren't the people whom butchered them. So the pig was owned by a saxon who spoke english, but butchered by a french speaker. So a pig got cut up into PORC chops.

@  unluckiness : (18 February 2019 - 03:25 AM)

Hank Pym<<<< Hank Hill

@  PlutoniumBoss : (18 February 2019 - 01:28 AM)

In that case, I don't see anything wrong with English speakers calling it what it is in English. Even though we technically use the French words for what comes out of it. "Beef", "pork"...

@  Bass X0 : (17 February 2019 - 02:04 PM)

I’d like a Siege Thundercracker who has his regular blue colors Cybertronian jet mode which transforms into a robot mode with his Action Master colors. Looks like it could be possible.

Greetings fellow Transformers fans, I haven't posted in a while, and after months of reflecting and CHUGS slowly losing value, I came to a to conclusion, that MP is the way to go, they're more of a collectible than anything else. So with that being said, I am starting my MP collection with the Leader of the Autobots, so now the question is, since I have options.

I don't which Optimus Prime to get.

MP-10 (TRU release)
MP-10 (Takara)
MP-10 (Hasbro 2017 release)
MP-10 (KO)
MP-10 (KO V.2)
MPP-10 (Wei Jiang)

I am not a fan of MP-10 Evangelion mode, MP-10 BAPE, MP-10 YOTH.

Or should I wait till MP-10 3.0 comes out. I have a feeling he will be near the 300$ mark.


Thanks

I think the last time you asked this someone replied that since you're being picky the knockoffs are just not an option.

Is he expensive? The one thing I don't like it's his "DEAD" eyes.

I have the TRU release of MP-10 and I like him a lot.  However, if I did not own him (or any other iteration of him), I would hold out for the upcoming release. 

 

Ultimately though, I think that you should buy the one that appeals to you the most.  If you like the looks of the new one, save up for him.  If you like MP-10, I am sure that there will be an abundance of them for sale when the new version comes out.  Perhaps you could wait and see; maybe focus on some of the MP cars now, which are mostly awesome, IMO.

I bought the Takara re-release so that his and Ultra Magnus' blues would be more distinct from one another.

I mean by itself I prefer the Hasbro blue. But I wanted the two fellas to be more different.

I have ever official version of this figure, so I do like them all

Of the ones you listed, I like the TakaraTomy one the most, but Hasbro's is nice too (the colors are just not as nice IMO but the eyes are nice).

At this point I would just wait for the 35th MP. If you're impatient than go for whichever official version is the cheapest.

The one with the figure stand was the second or third release of the TakaraTomy version by Hasbro Asia. Years ago, it was definitely not cheap to acquire.

It's about to be a superseded design. You've waited this long, wait a little longer for the 35th anniversary mold.

Or at least wait until the more fickle collectors dump their MP-10s in favour of the 35A version and score some deals.

How much does he go for new these days?  The last Takara rerelease was pretty cheap, if I remember correctly.  Personally I would wait for the new one, but you would probably get a better price on MP-10.

I will wait for the 3.0 version to come out. I just hope his Ion Blaster isn't like the MP10's Ion Blaster where it folds and you can store it in his backpack..(I've seen video reviews of him). I am not a fan of spring fold items. And what it with the huge gap hole over MP10's crutch?

Prime 3.0 still looks to have a folding rifle (probably for storage somewhere on his personage.  It wouldn't need to fold if it was just stashed in his trailer), but I don't think it's spring-loaded this time.

 

As for that "gaping hole" you're talking about, there's no hole at all.  There's a dark area because that's where the connection tab for the translucent insert is.  The thin translucent panel shines through yellow, but that thicker plug pretty much blocks all light and appears dark.

What you see is pretty much the extent of what we know.

 

There's a lot that we can infer about the toy, based on the fact that he's designed to go up against MP-36, but everything coming out of that line of thought is pure speculation.
