    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.

    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

    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

    Wat.

    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

    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.

    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.

    I'll be waiting for a black repaint and hope that by then the tabbing issues have been fixed.
