Transformers Masterpiece MP12T Tigertrack Review

4Koma_Ace_TFS_11

So now we know how Tigertrack was made!!! My review of this figure after the jump…

2013_MP_TT_01

I got this figure last Friday at the 12th Philippines Toys, Hobbies and Collectibles Convention 2013 which ran from last Friday to Sunday. Reserved from Patrick’s Toys at Greenhills who always reserves me the good stuff πŸ˜‰

2013_MP_TT_02

Very nice repaint. The Sideswipe Mold is definitely one of my favourites.

2013_MP_TT_03

I didn’t stick the Autobot sticker on his chest because I wanna keep the alt mode clean… which you’ll see later on in the review (Hint: Looks AWESOME)

2013_MP_TT_04

Paint on this one isn’t bad. I think I lucked out. The clear plastic of this mold found on the roof of the car, or back of the robot mode doesn’t take paint well and usually is a bit messy. Before you open the box of any Sideswipe Mold MP, knock on wood, pray on a monkey’s paw, burn an offering to the Transformers Gods, because I’ve seen people who weren’t so lucky on the net and got a figure that looked like it was spray painted by a 2 year old!

The more observant of you would see that his face is Redalert’s but with Sideswipe’s head. I have a Redalert but couldn’t be bothered taking him out for a comparison (I couldn’t even be bothered transforming Sideswipe lol). Guess you’ll just need to rely on memory or your imagination.

Shoulder Rocket is painted black at the rear making it look more G1 than cartoon.

2013_MP_TT_07

Other details are red on the shins (silver on Sideswipe) and blue on the feet (not on Sideswipe).

2013_MP_TT_08

Gun is identical to Sideswipe from what I can see

2013_MP_TT_09

Use’s Sideswipe Mold Chest and Shoulders (Redalert had the nobby things on the top of the chest and fake wheels on the shoulders). I prefer Sideswipe’s Mold….

Full body shot. Very cool looking.

2013_MP_TT_12

Has all the same articulation of Sideswipe and Redalert

2013_MP_TT_13

Now with Sideswipe’s Weapons for dual wielding fun

2013_MP_TT_14

Guess which gun is Sideswipe’s?

2013_MP_TT_15

Stick em up Pissbot!

2013_MP_TT_16

Size Comparison Fansproject Bruticus reissue with Asia United:) I got this the other week, another very very cool figure. Note I replaced Quake with WST Shockwave (Looks way better!!!)

2013_MP_TT_17

Sideswipe comparison (too lazy to transform him)

2013_MP_TT_18

Tigertrack also comes with black plastic versions of the exclusive arm pile drivers (Sideswipe came with the square blocky ones)

2013_MP_TT_19

Too bad they didn’t give us the metal versions. Anyway now to transform him…

2013_MP_TT_20

And we get the car that I used to draw a million times when I was a kid – Lamborghini Countach – Yellow version!

2013_MP_TT_21

One day when I’m rich I’ll have one of these… and not just toys of it 😦

2013_MP_TT_22

 

Love this car!!!

 

2013_MP_TT_23

This car needs orifaces (probably spelled that wrong)!

2013_MP_TT_24

As you can see, paint job isn’t too bad. I lucked out – even my Sideswipe has pretty good paint.

2013_MP_TT_25

Both these cars together makes the coolness factor multiply exponentially!

2013_MP_TT_26

Apologies no Redalert comparison, but the plain decos always looked better to me anyway

2013_MP_TT_27

More angles of these beauties.

2013_MP_TT_28

I bought Sideswipe for about $75 US when it first came out. Beggars can’t be choosers for prices in the PH compared to when I used to order everything Online direct from Japan back in Australia. But when I found out that Sideswipe increased in value to $150 it makes me feel a little better lol

2013_MP_TT_29

The weapon attachment on roof looks a bit stupid to me. It’s good that you can store the weapons, but I’d rather leave them off

2013_MP_TT_30

And now for some chicks posing on cars action!

2013_MP_TT_31

Her name is Anna and she comes from the Transformers GT line, Star Saber.

2013_MP_TT_32

Not terribly in scale but you can use your imagination

2013_MP_TT_33

Unfortunately no GT chicks that have yellow clothes

2013_MP_TT_34

They should reuse the Alternity GT Mold for Bumblebee, then I’ll get the yellow chick πŸ˜›

2013_MP_TT_35

Here with Star Saber and Sideswipe. The GT Mold looks awesome. May need to review it! And Optimus Prime (who I also have)

2013_MP_TT_36

 

Anyway, the verdict? I don’t usually go for repaints of characters I don’t know (couldn’t give a damn about Diaclone) but the Lamborghini was always my favourite car growing up and the Yellow looks amazing. Sideswipe is also my favourite G1 Car. Verdict?

9/10

    Really wish they do a real Sunstreaker figure rather than tease us with repaints like this. I can see a “Blue Bluestreak” figure coming soon from that mold in 2014. They give us a Movie Bumblebee redeco of the MP Bee instead of Cliffjumper too.
