Craig was sucked into the endless vortex of tech at an early age, only to be spat back out babbling things like "phase-locked-loop crystal oscillators!". Mostly this receives a pat on the head from the listener, followed closely by a question about what laptop they should buy.
Good lord; 10 inches of hard-moulded joy right here. While Takara has done Optimus in Masterpiece form twice before — once without a trailer and once with — the MP-10 brings him closer to his animated roots, with a remoulded head, long smoke stacks, gold hip detail and redone front grille.
