  1. Hey, I've not had much luck with my masterpieces, their paint is usually terrible. So, I'm going to have a go at some repairs for the worst and hoped for some tips: Soundwave - foot scratched up out of the box - what silver would you recommend for touch ups? Also, what blue for the toes? Red Alert - face scratched out of the box - what silver could I use for this? Thanks, Jack
  2. Hi there, I'm trying to find Rodimus Prime Masterpiece Version 2 (Takara version which tried to fix most of the problems) - does anyone know where I can get one? Thanks :D Jack
  3. Hmm, you guys are starting to convince me to get more! :) not good for my wallet - do you know if Soundwave will definitely be able to carry three cassettes?
  4. Right, so I've got Lambor, Soundwave and Rumble and Ravage on order. The masterpieces are just too amazing! I can't justify the repaints really, especially not Frenzy and Buzzsaw. As much as I want Frenzy... Red Alert MP looks good too. Argh :)
  5. Look who arrived today to keep Optimus company (OMG SO EXCITED)
  6. The thing that annoys me most is the quality of the figures in a line. I'm a recent collector starting only a couple of months ago, although I had every Transformer I could as a child and my recent obsession was sparked by a purchase last year. Dark of the Moon Megatron is perfect for the price I paid. However, the FOC wave 1 I just bought leaves a lot to be desired - they're insanely expensive for what they are! Kinda made me wish I'd bought more of the movie figures rather than the game figures even if I prefer the game's world. However, I have paid over the odds for a masterpiece
  7. Thanks. I'm not sure about Superglue because the feet still need to move. I was kinda hoping for a magic 'it won't break, make the screw tighter' response :) maybe I'll have to live with ol floppy feet Optimus! some people use clear nail polish. I've never tried this but i believe just a small coat around the ball joint should add an extra layer on contact on the ball to help keep the joint solid/less loose. google up some youtube vids. Ah, so it's just to make it tighter by adding a layer rather than sticking it solid. That makes sense.

  9. I've seen reference to this problem on some forums but I can't find a fix. My MP10 has fairly loose feet, I don't trust leaving him standing up in certain poses in case he flops forward off the shelf. I've tried tightening the screws but they feel like they're in as tight as they can go - I don't want to break anything - and what I did tighten hasn't seemed to make a difference. Has anyone got any ideas or suggestions for how I can fix this?

    Transformers 4

    I can't believe Michael Bay is working on Transformers 4! After he promised he wouldn't. Argh. My bet is that Optimus, now severely damaged and 'done' will play a minor role, maybe a narrating role. I'm then betting that Ultra Magnus and the Dinobots will play a huge role and we'll no doubt get a Galvatron. Hot Rod's got to show up too, knowing Michael Bay's love of speed. As much as love seeing reinventions of existing characters though, I'd love to see some entirely new Transformer characters. A new concept entirely.
  11. FOC Shockwave - a solid, cool figure worth every penny. Looks cool in robot form as well as vehicle 4/5 FOC Jazz - the vehicle and robot look cool at first glance and the transformation is fun. However, neither mode is perfectly finished with big gaps and robot parts showing in the vehicle. Overall this feels very cheap. I paid full price, it should have been at least half that. 2/5 FOC Optimus Prime - again, on the face of it, this could have been great. The robot and vehicle mode are so close to being good but end up being cheap and unfinished. 2/5 Very disappointed :( Shockwave is awe
  12. I don't suppose anyone knows where I might get a Takara Grimlock MP for a decent price? I would consider Hasbro's but even they're going for over £100 everywhere... I want to grab one before they get too expensive.
  13. So... Against better judgement and recommendations, I couldn't wait and opted for the Takara version - it arrived today! :D I couldn't be happier. Here's it is in all its glory: I've seen hundreds of pictures of MP-10 but it really is awesome in real life. If Optimus Prime is the best toy ever, this is definitely the best version in my humble opinion. I bought it from a seller on Ebay for about $100 less than BBTS. The reasons I opted for Takara are: 1) I genuinely couldn't wait :) 2) I plan on collecting a few MPs, so I liked the idea of collecting the same line 3) colouring, l
  14. Hey Jack. In my book the best MP You can get is the original MP-01 Optimus Prime. If you look him up on Ebay you might be able to find him with his trailer. Thanks, I think it was that one that originally caught my eye. It's a bit confusing for a newbie to the masterpiece series. Is MP-01 diecast? Yes. And heavy. Mp-01 does not come with an empty trailer. Mp-04 does but this version wasn't released in the states. Just solo Optimus sans trailer. There were 2 versions released in the states btw. The difference was in paint apps. I own the first version of the US one and MP-04.
