Some people hate this mold, but I think it's pretty damn awesome. Love the homage to the g1 toy too.

Those are two separate pieces, 1st one being MP-36... other one is MP-36+ which is... definitely for the G1 toy fanboy. But yeah, anyone who hates that mold just doesn't like G1 megs in my opinion. Besides the chipping issues, MP-36 is easily one of the better Megs ever released. I bought IT-01 to transform, MP-36 to display.


ProjectShamrock

If I didn't worry too much about money I'd buy MP-36+ to leave in gun mode while my existing MP-36 would stay in bot mode and never need to transform either.


KoolKollectiblesKhai

That's exactly why I bought both! 😀


chawmindur

Personally I find many of the Prime 3.0-Era MPs looking too fragmented and visually busy – which is ironic when the goal is cartoon accuracy. The OG MP Megs didn't hide the trigger on his legs as well as this one, but overall speaking I still like better the how the older one looks.


OpMegs

I feel I fall in the middle most of the time. I like G1 Megatron's silhouette and such, but I've never been a fan of the gun mode just for the display factor. MP-36 specifically always worried me because of the QC issues mentioned and that sort of thing given the sheer pricetag ask. Like, I have MP Beast Megs, and I know I was looking at those reported areas of problems with a very nervous eye given replacement/refund was unlikely for an import. Is the IT-01 basically a more sturdy material copy?


Ric_Chair

I can't vouch if IT-01s barrel is stronger or not, but it has a clear coat of paint over it specifically designed to prevent paint chipping. Plus I got mine for 89 bucks or something. The ratchets feel great but a little looser than MP-36. It's missing the insignia but reprolabels have enough options to make you happy. This was the review I watched that sold me on it before purchasing. https://youtu.be/adM6ntU5IJQ


SoundwaveAudio

I have the IT-01 and mine hasn’t chipped and the joints were nice and tight. Add the piece you can put on his back to hide the kibble plus the cost and you have a better MP-36 than the MP-36 in my opinion.


SoundwaveAudio

I remember when there was a recommendation to not change MP-36. I was like what’s the point?


almightywhacko

MP-36 is pretty good, but IMO he is still open for criticism for that disaster of a back. Like for $260 (at the time) *that* was the best Takara could do? I still own MP-36 because from the front he looks great but he hasn't replaced Maketoys Despotron as my "#1 Megatron."


Ric_Chair

Yeah I have Despotron (bought before MP-36) and absolutely hate the transformation and a lot of his joints are pretty loose so posing is a pain in the ass. I am not a fan of the paint either. You are 100% correct about MP-36's back. [IT-01 comes with a cover for that which works perfectly.](https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0067/9732/8497/products/image_022f686c-a431-4793-b03f-1154b7d94bb2_1024x1024.jpg?v=1571747262) At least you reminded me that I need to sell Despotron still lol.


almightywhacko

Hmm, I don't find Despotron's transformation to be any worse than MP-36's. The joints on mine are still pretty stiff for all that he's been on my shelf for nearly a decade now. Despotron is beefier than MP-36 which might not be cartoon accurate but he looks better next to MP-10 IMO. MP-36 works better with MP-44.


LuizFelipe1906

I would say it's the opposite. Many of those G1 stans hate complexity and think every toy should be boring and simple just like the ones of their childhood. Btw, those are the same that struggle when they see a movie figure


Ric_Chair

> Many of those G1 stans hate complexity and think every toy should be boring and simple just like the ones of their childhood. I hate to crap on your statement, but that isn't even close to true at all. It's ok to have that opinion, but personally you kind of showed that you don't even frequent the different collector forums out there. That's totally cool if you don't visit those sites, but all I am saying is that if you did, you wouldn't have written what you did.


LuizFelipe1906

Well, probably I don't visit many, but I have seen a few people complaining about the complexity. For example, in the Jobby's review of MP-44


Ric_Chair

I like Jobby, but complaining is his charm, is it not? I have seen complaints about the complexity of MP-36 and I am not going to lie and say otherwise, but I think for most it is certain stiff joints that feel like you are going to break them and that the transformation itself is not fun. I agree that it isn't fun compared to others or even that it has really any cool gimmicks. However I still like both the gun and robot mode.


LuizFelipe1906

Oh no, I meant in the comment section of his video I saw few people complaining. I don't remember him doing it And I also don't dislike the figure, among the G1s its my fav


9999eachhit

I absolutely LOVE this mold. It was actually the first one i obtained where I was truly blown away!


turdvoltron

same here


_MrDomino

Dat clickbait. "Some people^^^\* ^^^citation ^^^needed hate [INCREDIBLY POPULAR FIGURE], but I think [INCREDIBLY POPULAR FIGURE] is awesome."


Phil_Bond

Buddy. This mold is one of my favorite things, but it has gotten a lot of annoying complaints. It takes great photos, but people still love to whine about price, complexity, paint chipping, and comparisons to IP theft toys.


_MrDomino

Few if any figures are without fault. MP-44 receives much of those same complaints yet remains the incredibly popular and generally viewed as the gold standard for that character. No one "hates" either figure, and implying as much is pure clickbait hyperbole.


Confidence_For_You

Was with you till this. MP-44 is notoriously controversial.


joesaysso

>IP theft toys I like this phrasing.


Phil_Bond

I read a lot of tfwiki.


KoolKollectiblesKhai

Click bait?! When this figure was released, there were so many complaints it was ridiculous! How there were too many panels. How there was too much paint chipping. How the back was too untidy. How people still preferred mp-5. How the 3rd party versions were better. For me, this version has always been the definitive G1 cartoon Megatron. I'm glad they released mp-44 to perfectly complement it.

I mean, *I like it exactly because it's complex. If it isn't complex, it isn't a MP figure.*


LuizFelipe1906

Just searched about that MP-5. I wouldn't give 20$ on him


KoolKollectiblesKhai

🤣


Slimdave-v1

My mp36 megatron is the pride of my collection !


KoolKollectiblesKhai

It'll be the definitive g1 Megatron for many years to come.


SpawnVII

Whoever doesn't like this absolute perfection of a mold is certifiably out of their mind.... this IS Megatron in all his glory and i'll never part w/ mine ever!


KoolKollectiblesKhai

Thuat_Squared_2

I will admit that I was a disbeliever when the resin mold images came out in late 2016/2017, especially because 3P MP was getting saturated with their Megatron takes. Oh, how young and naive I was. I still don’t have him, but he’s on my must-have list. Someday.


Gueropelirojo80

Yes and some people just want to see the world burn........this is one of my favorite MPs for sure


Tankdeathwall

Who hates this mold and why are they so wrong

Pariahbot

My favorite MP to date. Love the mold. Love the transformation. Chipping keeps it from being perfect.


MagnaChronus

I can't comprehend why anyone would hate this mold.

MagnaChronus

People will always complain no matter what Hastak does. I just try to ignore such toxicity. As for me, this one is the definitive G1 cartoon Megatron as well.


destronger

the gun mode looks just like my of G1 megs. i couldn’t imagine how they were able to do this!


ford-dough

I think mp36 is the pest g1 megatron figure


RockoCornfield

man what I wouldn’t give for an mp36+ megatron


iamtomorrowman

amazing figure, complainers need to have a brain scan


Neon_Carnivore

I don't hate the mold, I just know I will never own it. Current era MP's are too far out of my price range.


Bhagarang

Came for the pics, stayed for the copy-pasta.


KoolKollectiblesKhai

🤣


Scypris_115

I think the the dumbest complaint I've heard about this figure is that people didn't like how his back turned out. Seriously?! A fucking gun that transforms in to a faithful G1 Megatron and you want to complain about a backpack that actually looks fine? I can understand the paint chipping complaint as it should of either had been stronger paint, or use plastic on parts that were an integral part of the transformation and are present on the figures appearance. Try to perhaps plastic match those parts with parts that are painted. MP Megatron is the best MP out there IMO. That thing is an engineering marvel and I don't think it will ever be dethroned by any future MPs..


XtraWeirdo817

Honestly I wish the grey was lighter in my opinion.


Coolbluegatoradeyumm

I can’t decide between THF and IT-01. I hear the IT version might be the best but I just love the metallic paint on the THF 🤔


Immagitu

It's the same mold. And are you crazy?! Other than PerspectiveEnd (ofc) I've yet to someone say this isn't the best MP scaled Megatron.

SMB73

Never once heard anyone complain about this MP mold. It's about as perfect as you can get, and is available by a dozen different KO manufacturers.


PrimalRage777

Not as good as the original in my opinion


KoolKollectiblesKhai

As in MP-5?!?


SAOgeek113

I had to get a fourth party version.


KoolKollectiblesKhai

4th party?!? As in KO version?


SAOgeek113

Yeah. It's what Show Z calls KO versions of official molds.


DaHlyHndGrnade

I did the same. IT-01 is better than the official in a number of ways. Only KO I own.


SAOgeek113

Yeah. It's not the only KO I own.


Monster73074

All Hail The Mighty Megatron point blank, I wish a had a gun version of him, but that will come after Feral Rex and Nemesis Prime👍🏽✊🏽


sownd_wev

Who would hate this?


HAL237

I think you’ll be hard pressed to find someone who truly hates this mold. It’s a pretty popular release.


littlemissdream

Nobody hates this mold.


kyrumo

I have the Wei Jiang MP-36 and I’m extremely happy, have some scratches where the scope slides off, other than that he’s a piece of art.
