random thought: has Nintendo ever made a 3DS that looks like a Pokedex? because that seems like a GOLDMINE waiting to happen...

@  Nevermore : (21 September 2018 - 03:23 AM)

Wiigii! Titans Return Grotusque for only 60 Euros (actually 70 but I somehow had an eBay gift card for reasons that escape me) with free shipping from within my own country!

@  Whirl Maximus : (21 September 2018 - 03:02 AM)

That was the plan for Predators too with the Super Predators.

@  Waspinator : (21 September 2018 - 01:46 AM)

So, apparently in the new Predator movie, the Predators don't hunt us for honor or the challenge or anything like that, but because they're stealing human DNA to modify themselves. Congrats Hollywood, on making a monster far less cool and scary.

@  Pennpenn : (20 September 2018 - 08:46 AM)

I only started playing it recently so I don't know what it was like before. Actually surprised they haven't finished the story yet. Then again, unless they introduce another world it's pretty much just Maleficent and whatever the Foretellers are playing at left.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 September 2018 - 08:30 AM)

Geeze.. I reloaded up Kingdom Hearts X for the first time in a long time. That game has massivily inflated from when I played it when it first launced in the US.

@  Pennpenn : (19 September 2018 - 09:07 AM)

It's an annoying thing to have happen in any game. I'm hoping they actually finish releasing all the story mode parts before 3 comes out.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 September 2018 - 06:24 AM)

Ahh. Hadn't played that in a long time.. Since before the PVP I think.

@  Pennpenn : (19 September 2018 - 04:33 AM)

Kingdom Hearts Union Cross. Specifically the PVP fights.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 September 2018 - 04:31 AM)

What game PennPenn

@  Pennpenn : (19 September 2018 - 03:13 AM)

Man, I love it when you've got limited attempts at something in a game, said game crashes at the end of the thing, so you lose the attempt but don't get any credit.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 September 2018 - 08:44 PM)

I know. I'm back to the classic purple for the first time since the comic theme was introduced.

@  Fenix Twilight : (18 September 2018 - 08:32 PM)

Alright thanks, gonna be weird without the speech bubble boxes but I'll manage.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 September 2018 - 07:59 PM)

Nope, ongoing problem for a bunch of us. The mods know, so... just hunker down and wait. In the mean time: changing themes will sort it out for a bit. Only the comic theme is affected.

@  Fenix Twilight : (18 September 2018 - 05:36 PM)

Upgrade is a GREAT dark sci fi throwback film. Kind of feels like the genre has been nailing some good stuff after a LONG time of drek

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (10 September 2018 - 01:59 PM)

Memorandum to all: the word "siege" is spelled with the "i" before the "e".

@  Waspinator : (06 September 2018 - 10:29 PM)

They've made a PS4 version of Final Fantasy 15 Pocket Edition. For those keeping score, it's the PS4 version of a smartphone version of a PS4 game.

@  wonko the sane? : (05 September 2018 - 09:20 PM)

Ah HA! turns out the trick to installing the rift software was to run it as an admin. Stupid windows 10.

@  wonko the sane? : (05 September 2018 - 04:58 PM)

Awright! I got the display port working! Which means I can now connect my occulus rift!

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.
