    2 months are left before we get MP06 Skywarp. With the flop of MP03, do you think that Takara/Tomy have learned a valueable lesson ?
    Or in other wards: Are we gonna get a masterpiece with better QC this time ?

    Never the less, I am still happy I pre-ordered him.

    What were the major complaints with SS anyways (besides the paint job).

    I know people had problems with his joints being extremely tight, was there anything else?

    Also, I'd say I'm a bit more excited for the Hasbro release of MP SS with G1 colors, though Skywarp should be nice.

    I don't know if they will or not I don't have MP-03 so I don't know its major flaws. Did MP-1 have the front doors that werent level or was that just the american release?

    The flaws were the color, too tight joints that left serious stress marks after first transformation and of course some of the toys of MP03 came with the same changeable head. The plastic itself was somewhat from a poor quality.

    Ah, hope the US release doesn't suffer the same fate.

    MP-06 apparently still has flawed QC.

    But Hasbro's Screamer is all new plastic, with more diecast.

    Did MP-03 really flop? I thought it sold just as well as the other MP's. Even MP-02 is difficult to find and I thought people really wouldn't pay for an over-priced white Prime re-paint.

    That is the impression that I got from the boards. Around the time it was released.
    I did get it myself and was kinda disappointed by it poor quality.

    Ya know, I am kind of excited. I wasn't going to get it when I first read about it, but with the news of a Hasbro Screamer in G1 colors I think I may just pick this one up too, and keep my fingers crossed for at least one more MP Seeker, maybe Thrust so as they are not all the exact same mold.

    While I'm glad we're getting correct colors, I wish we were also getting the first non kibble design version that Takara came up with. Samurai swords FTL!

    I'm going to need to see better pics of Skywarp before I decide whether to drop money on it or not. For a toy like that I'd need the color scheme to be exact to the character it's representing, hence why I'm so excited Hasbro picked up the dropped ball that is MP-03. I'm not going to hold my breath Hasbro would release a Skywarp repaint, so I'm really hoping Taktomy doesn't screw Skywarp up like they did Starscream.

    Let us all be thankful that he will not be released in the KissPlayers line. :)
