Will this be the last official MP-10? Well, no, because we have whatever that Ghostbusters model is on the way. Could be my last, though, what with the new MP Prime in the pipeline. If this is it for me and MP-10, then this Takara Golden Lagoon Limited Edition is a great send off. Deliciously absurd.
To Canada. With my girls. It was terrific, but the jet leg has RUINED me. It seems I can no longer brush it off as I once did when I was a nipper. I’ll upload some pics when I’ve been through them. Here’s a taster, though – our hotel view at Lake Louise:
In more frivolous matters, however, what bots arrived in the post in my absence?
I’m probably not going to have time to write a review on this one. In short: He’s MP-10, so he’s great. At the same time it’s not as premium as it might be, and arguably the colour choices on the KO Shattered Glass are better, even if the build quality is almost definitely not. The lack of chrome on the grill and stacks is a shame. Still, I would give this 4 or 4.5 Stars, probably. It’s still awesome. Although not as awesome as that new Black Camo Bape MP-10, which the last time I checked was £380+ on eBay. FFS. Wow, these short reviews are a piece of piss! Time to re-write the style guide.
One Masterpiece to rule them all. You may choose to argue that MP-10 is not the greatest masterpiece ever made because you’re young and you’re cool and you’re a hipster and an individual and rise about the ‘sheeple’. But you’re also wrong. MP-10 is, as they say down our way, ‘the bollocks’.
OK, I concede that you at least maintain the right not to adore MP-10 above all others, but I’m happy to go with the crowd on this one. He’s a magnificent figure, with two virtually perfect and kibble free modes that sport a gorgeous anime look. There are complaints to be made, such as the vehicle rear still looking a bit leggy. Some cite the figure’s ‘gorilla’ arms (which I’ll take any day over the added kibble introduced by the Shadow Fisher add-on). And some specimens might be troubled by loose ankles or smokestacks. But, really, to criticise MP-10 is prove yourself impossible to please. This is as good as it gets.
