    To be honest, both Hasbro AND Takara are equally capable of acts of Awesomeness and acts of Stupidity. They are both companies selling products. Neither need endlessly loyalty or constant scorn, and I don't feel either for either company. They need to be praised when they do right and called out when they do wrong, which Takara has very clearly done here.

    They are recalling the damn thing because they fucked up. What else do you want?

    I didn't buy it, that's how I expressed my dissatisfaction with this clusterfuck of a release. No thing else matters. NOTHING. We can bitch, moan, whatever. At the end of the day not buying it is what hurts TT the most.

    We get to see how TT handles releases moving forward. Like I said before, I never had any problems with my MP's as far as QC issues, and IMO, what I've seen it's been blown up out of proportion (nothing saves MP 09 though), but then again that's my opinion.

    BUT, it seems that every single copy of this thing has some sort of issue, except for two board members here. Which seems kind of impossible if you ask me.

    When amazon had 56 negative reviews, ouch. I’ve counted about 4 people including me who have had good experiences. But then zero elsewhere. Go fig.

    Glad my original still holds up (even with the cracked tires)

    There really is no excuse for this, props to HLJ for doing this.

    TBF, there could be a ton of people who have no issues as well that aren't on these boards.

    I'm not sure how hollow plastic has anything to do with this, especially since this is a rerelease of an older figure from before "hollow plastic" was a thing...

    Well i got mine today and I opened it up and did a quick transform of optimus. I was hurrying cause I have a appt in a few minutes now but after I get home I can take more pictures and look at that post of everything that people have been having problems with. Now ill say as of now I don't believe my optimus has any problems. The biggest thing that I was worried about was the crooked stance but that seems to be fine. I know a couple of you have been measuring dicks the past few weeks but I'll say at least as of now I think I have a confirmed copy of prime without qc issues. Not to say that takara doesn't have issues. All companies do. And it's cool to support them even when they're down. But come on don't antagonize each other. We all are about the same thing. If you say you like them once that's all you have to say. I'm a construction worker. I could never ever tell the guys I have hundreds of tf and Digimon stuff. It's nice to come here and have a good group of guys and ladies gettin along. Remember. It's plastic p. S. Sorry the pics plate weird I can't got the life of me figure out how to turn them

    Yes that is all true, but Takara has been called out so it's time to stop attacking certain other board members over it.

    Tony, I know you're a busy man and this thread is getting kinda negative, but I wanted to take a second to say thanks - your writing about Car Robots back in 2000/2001 is what got me back into this hobby, and all of the CR/RiD toys I bought as a younger person (and, to a degree, all the Transformers I ever bought since then) are because of you posting pictures like this. I've been desperately trying to figure out how to get one of these for myself just to have one sealed in box, and your pics of them are as amazing as ever. Keep it up, and thanks for the memories.

    Maybe they will redeem themselves with an MP one.

    now the only pieces that doesnt look like they belong are the anntenae on both convoy and the fusion, also his insginia and magnus\' grill and the rims on both molds ,because they are chromed

    ....why are they chromed
    honestly i dont see any real reason to get this version of the set(or the figures)
    they are not still that show accurate, the only reason it is so frigging expensive is the new audio clips that only japanese people will even enjoy
