Packaging / 打包 / パッケージング
MPL-01 came packaged extremely well. Thick grey styrofoam housed the main bot and a couple of the accessories. The rest were stored in a thick black plastic tray with a clear clam shell top. Box is made from pretty decent cardboard but had exceptionally nice detailing such as gold lettering and a high gloss finish. Extremely nice stuff.
Thoughts / 思想 / 考え
This is a non transforming highly articulated figure with parts that interchange to show different forms or modes. This is built on top of a metal frame (skeleton) and are very similar to what you would find in a Metal Build Gundam or a Flame Toys bot.
MPL-01 Red Sharpshooter will combine with MPL-02 Great Armor to form Omega Prime / God Fire Convoy (Great Red Sharpshooter is what we all calling it). These are all original designs from a company with many years in this industry and provide very fresh takes on these characters.
MPL-01 does have a couple LED features such as light up blue chest emblem and light up should cannon.
I honestly think this will a company to keep an eye on as their selection of characters is good and their quality is some of the best. They have been very inquisitive about what they can improve, the few things I did mention they already are working on solutions for. With this many accessories and quality of build I could easily see this being higher priced without question.
This is Tec and this has been a TF-Prototype review. Until next time.
