Well, we did warn you... (^.^')
^^^ So where should someone buy this figure and what serial numbers should they look out for ?
Not sure how this serial number thing got started, but there is nothing differentiating the figures apart. At this point, practically all Hasbro/Hasbro Asia releases have this issue. If you can wait, I highly suggest holding off until Takara shows their offering. Even if it turns out to be exactly the same, you literally have nothing to lose.
So sad. Sursly you guys. I guess I'll just keep it in bot mode and sell it later. Booooo Hasbro Booooooooooooo
It indeed sucks but that's kind of what the last 50 pages have been about
Just don't but this trash until everything is fixed, even the 2007 leader transforms properly, lol.
Just buy commander wich fits better in scale with bee in both modes.
Let it be known now Prime is anything but "prime" material. Still needs a second run that can fix the tabbing issues. Best you can do is make like wotafa and fix your figure manually, it's just gonna take time. And for the record, a $100+ figure shouldn't need mods and should be perfect out the wazoo, but many of us knew of its flaws going in
Tutorial to paint it de correctly
It should've been painted like that to begin with
This looks SO MUCH better with the under arms painted properly.
I haven't heard anyone really mention this but it doesn't seem like the smoke stacks tab in very well either in robot mode or bot mode. That's not the deal breaker with me considering all the other problems but just what I've noticed watching the video reviews on this guy. If anyone that has the figure wants to comment on it let me know if I'm just seeing things wrong.
Haven't had the opportunity to watch the video. Does the uploader comment on what brand and color name/number ID of the paints he used?
While it does constitute to a better look for the figure, I'd almost say he looks too clean. I do really like the red painted arms and the blue detailing though
Yeah though, in wotafa's extensive mods, he cuts into the truck toolbox to allow the bottom unpainted pipe to move in closer with the smoke stacks in alt-mode. So that is among the aforementioned tabbing issues with the figure
Yeah I mean more where they tab into the hinge. the stacks have two tabs on them one for vehicle mode and one for bot mode. just wondering if it fits all the way in. Thanks for the reply btw.
He says what paints he uses but I skipped that part, let me search it.
Edit: Here's the colors he used, what he basically did was paint red first, followed by silver and details in blue.
...Huh, coulda sworn it was more defined. Welp.
So while I'm pretty stoked to get this guy, I realize the faults he has. If mine tabs in correctly, I'll be happy but it sucks I have to even use the word "if."
It really sucks that Movie Masterpieces have been delegated to such a low priority that it couldn't have been done correctly the first time.
Especially when the live action films have done nothing but bolster the franchise and made it possible for Takara to continue and refresh the Masterpiece line.
MPM deserves better than this.
OK, I will wait based on what's been said, thanks !
I'll be waiting for a black repaint and hope that by then the tabbing issues have been fixed.
MR.Bucket Kit for MPM Prime and any other version of the character.
Aww crap, Ordered mine from Robotkingdom too, ill see when i get the figure in like two more days, I mean i trust them my bumblebee came with no issues besides the stability issues of course but id rather that then all the fail paint apps people were getting.. hmm Might have to use that fix i saw on YouTube if he doesn't..not sure if thats going to help
