Takara MP - 33 Inferno is a new design from Takara but brings us another Autobot. The amount of autobots created are greatly outweighing the decepticons if you do not count the countless repaints of the jets. MP-33 Inferno costs $139.99 but comes with multple accessories and looks great.

MP-33 Inferno is packaged similar to rest of the Takara MP line, the front of the package shows Inferno in Robot Mode, the back shows various accessories and a size comparison. MP-33 Inferno is scaled in size with the other Master Piece figures and is show accurate.
MP-33 Inferno comes with a variety of accessories, you can change out his chest/grill for a more show accurate cartoon version, a similar accessory is also given for is hand water cannon. You are provided a blaster, waster stream that attaches to his hand or ladder & a hose from the cartoon that he was attacked by. Additionally you are given multiple faces and a show accurate head piece. The oddest yet most interesting accessory given with MP-33 Inferno is a chest plate with attachments so you can reenact that time Inferno had to carry Red Alert in his arms....
MP-33 Inferno comes with stickers but no instructions on to where to put them, I ended up just putting 2 stickers where I felt they fit best. I put the F.D. stickers on his doors and they are still visible when he is transformed so this seems to be a good place for them. His vehicle mode can roll, the ladder moves up and down and you can attach the water stream to it as well. Inferno is fairly show accurate in Fire Engine Mode and there really is not anything bad to say about it.
Transforming MP-33 Inferno from Vehicle Mode to Robot Mode is simple and takes onyl a few minutes to complete. The pictures in the instructions are east to follow and make the transformation process effortless. Once transformed Inferno looks great, his multiple accories give you options for different poses and he is sturdy enough where he is not going to topple over unless pushed.
Overall MP-33 Inferno is a great figure and is definitely something you want to add to your MP collection. In the "Bad" section I put that he is another Autobot, I know I can not really down grade the figure for this, but it is more of a personal gripe with Takara. How many Autobots are they going to make before we get another Decepticon? There are so many Decepticons they could be giving us! They could be starting an MP-Combiner line, who wouldn't want to see Motor Master and the Stunticons? or the Constructicons? However I am not going to hit MP-33 in the PUNCHES for him being an Autobot.
MP-33 Inferno gets 4 OUT OF 5 PUNCHES!
