If talking about it here is all it takes to get you, why hasn't the oreo thread killed you yet?

Hey man, how you deal with yo problems is yo bidness.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (16 July 2018 - 04:08 PM)

I did no such thing! I am innocent of the pop tart corruption!

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 July 2018 - 02:57 PM)

You guys made me buy cinnamon roll Pop Tarts today.

@  Otaku : (16 July 2018 - 02:38 PM)

@D Immortalis Just fill the bag with air first and pop that? XP Oh, and you won't like that I grew up microwaving them more often than actually toasting. ;)

@  Otaku : (16 July 2018 - 02:37 PM)

@MEDdMI Yeah, the even more artificial flavors like S'more are the ones that usually taste good cold. There exceptions... I think it was Sugar Cookie that needed to be toasted...

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (16 July 2018 - 02:19 PM)

@  D Immortalis : (15 July 2018 - 06:43 PM)

if po tarts dont POP then they become a lie.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 July 2018 - 05:10 PM)

I typically just went for the traditional flavours... I think mostly Rasberry or Strawberry. I'll have to pick up a box next time I'm out

@  MEDdMI : (15 July 2018 - 04:09 PM)

@Otaku I've tried that too with a few of them. I liked the soda flavored ones they had. Too bad they were limited. :(

@  Otaku : (15 July 2018 - 03:48 PM)

@D Immortalis Most Pop-Tarts I like are better eaten frozen... and the only reason I started doing that is because Pop-Tarts commercials told me to try them that way. XD

@  D Immortalis : (15 July 2018 - 03:03 PM)

woohoo, just got my tickets to see From Ashes To New and Hollywood Undead on the 26th!

@  wonko the sane? : (15 July 2018 - 06:32 AM)

That's basically what happened to me. I was on that aisle for completely other reasons, caught sight of them in my peripheral, and then... just couldn't stop thinking about them.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 July 2018 - 02:47 AM)

Hungry for pop tarts now - haven't had those in years

@  D Immortalis : (15 July 2018 - 12:32 AM)

anyone that doesnt put theit pop tarts in a toaster is a heretic.

@  unluckiness : (15 July 2018 - 12:32 AM)

Do they still make the cinnamon-brown sugar ones?

@  wonko the sane? : (14 July 2018 - 09:03 PM)

Yup. And?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 July 2018 - 08:29 PM)

Aren't Pop Tarts like, totally junk for you by the definition of the word?

@  wonko the sane? : (14 July 2018 - 08:27 PM)

Four IS standard... but it's been so long I had forgotten.

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 July 2018 - 07:29 PM)

Bah, wonko, I remember when 4 was STANDARD

Me: opening a box of pop tarts. "Oh my god! There's FOUR in here?!?! Score!"

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 July 2018 - 10:22 AM)

Well, some people are into shopping, anyway.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 July 2018 - 10:22 AM)

Taiwanese Costco also has lots of things that shoppers would want!

@  unluckiness : (14 July 2018 - 10:18 AM)

The Taiwan Costco I visited once was nice but I have to question why our guide thought it'd be a good place to bring tourists.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 July 2018 - 09:40 AM)

Lower prices, lower taxes, bigger selection... yeah, I can see that happening.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 July 2018 - 09:14 AM)

Didn't a Washington Costco make the news a couple years ago for being sheerly flooded with customers from British Columbia?

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 July 2018 - 01:25 AM)

That's cool. There's a Sam's Club in Niagara Falls, where I tend to cross the border, but I've never been in. I'm a Costco member, but not Sam's Club; and unfortunately Costco makes sure there aren't any locations in the US too near the Canadian border

@  wonko the sane? : (13 July 2018 - 07:02 PM)

Nope, not the battle damaged version. He got it from his cousin, whose family has a camping ground in... I wanna say new york state, but I'm probably wrong. Just across the border anyway.

@  Nevermore : (13 July 2018 - 06:36 PM)

Sam's Club exclusive was the battle damaged version, right?

@  TheMightyMol... : (13 July 2018 - 06:34 PM)

He's got friends on the other side.

@  TM2-Megatron : (13 July 2018 - 06:08 PM)

where'd your nephew get a US retailer exclusive

@  wonko the sane? : (13 July 2018 - 04:39 PM)

Alright, I managed to identify him. The 2007 voyager class that was apparently exclusive to sam's club.

@  wonko the sane? : (13 July 2018 - 04:20 PM)

Well, that was a nice surprise. Me nephew (the 10 year old.) just gave me an optimus prime that's minorly older than he is.

@  wonko the sane? : (13 July 2018 - 10:25 AM)

Nah, even better. He'll be a memory of the mission briefing. Just a voice over. Four different figures in the toyline, but not actually in the movie.

@  unluckiness : (13 July 2018 - 10:06 AM)

I am 110% sure that Optimus will show up, even as a transmission or something. At least maybe we can get a cybertronian form this time.

@  Pennpenn : (13 July 2018 - 09:55 AM)

At least one Optimus sodding Prime.

@  wonko the sane? : (13 July 2018 - 06:57 AM)

Same way as always: completely unrelated figures and models that weren't even in the movie.

@  unluckiness : (12 July 2018 - 11:47 PM)

I think that's a given, though, given the small number of transformers in Bee Movie, I wonder how they'll fill the toyline

@  Steevy Maximus : (12 July 2018 - 02:07 PM)

Yeah. I'm hoping with the new film, we might get something closer to the deluxe range

@  NotVeryKnightly : (12 July 2018 - 01:20 PM)

Isn't the Masterpiece the only recent VW G1-looking Bee?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (12 July 2018 - 11:02 AM)

Especially when they are questioned directly and respond by dodging the question.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (12 July 2018 - 11:01 AM)

Watching hypocrites parade their high ground is equally amusing and cringeworthy.

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.

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.
