Why those visors are angry.
I mean, while great tips, pushing in the legs all the way, having the back of the truck peg into the die-cast section and having the feet not go into the cab doesn't affect the front of the truck at all. That's what I've been doing all along and I can guarantee Wotafa has been as well.
@Sixo: Man, more and more impressive shots of MPM04 by your skilled picture taking..
AE pre-order for TakaraTomy MPM-4 is up
Transformers Masterpiece MPM-04 - Optimus Prime
If the retail price for this in the US is going to be $100, I can't see many collectors getting the Japanese version unless it comes with all those fixes.
The early bird discount from AE is a reasonable price for the Japanese version.
Considering i'd have to pay around £125 for this in the UK, that AE price is an absolute bargain!
The prototype had a sliding mechanism in the shoulder tanks to extend the inside detailing out. I guess budget cuts meant this had to be scrapped on the final version.
Took a little pushing but managed to tab the front windscreen into the engine section. Its not tabbed in strongly and would untab if it knocked it though.
Yup. Not only that, the side windows don't line up.
Huh, ok then. So could someone do this angle and pose to compare?
Bought the AE version. Hopefully it will have a few extra touches, but I'm expecting it to be the same as the US/Canada release.
The price is great, too! We got hosed here in Canada. The US price for BB is $79. The conversion puts that at $100 CND, but TRU was charging $129 for it. There's a $20 off coupon to help with that, but still! Brutal!
Prime is supposed to be $100 US, which is $125 CND. I'd expect TRU to gouge us to the tune of at least $175. Paying $118 CND to AE is well worth it.
I'm sure it's been asked a thousand times but I have to ask one more, what does shipping generally run from AEto the states, ballpark figures? I'm guessing it's comparable to HLJ?
Generally more than HLJ.
Another kit has appeared.
Those add-ons look huge
Ben's video is up
Haha, nice seeing a fellow TFW2005 member's name right there @Unicron the Chaos Bringer
Not sure if I should make the jump for the AE offering, especially since I wasn't expecting one so soon. The price is good, and Anime Export has earned a reputation for always selling out figures (I take this to mean a good thing), but I haven't had the time to look at HLJ shipping so I don't even know what ballpark that is.
Owners of figures with faulty alt-mode tabbing: Actar, TCracker, Mach, auvelier, wotafa, KNERDOUT, Lukelbs (formerly HolyCulture's copy), Ryan F., Benscollectables, Graeme, ambitron, 1001 toys
Owners of ones that tabbed in fine: TCracker, Zemetri? (picture looked more untabbed TBH), Mark H., Dah Padre
Ah ok, I can only speculate as I don't have it inhand yet (likely next week... waiting for A3U to get it in ). I kinda guessed as much but didn't want to leave any stones unturned.
I actually applaud Wotafa's guts, he has the balls to take such drastic surgery to fix it.
That's what she said
