Thanks so much!!
The legs aren't quite as well-toleranced as the official, IMO. But it's not unstable, it's just not as stable.
If you're asking whether I recommend it... By all means, fork over the money. I recommend this over the official version. It holds together better as a truck and looks WAAAAAAYYYYY better as a robot.
I was actually pretty pleased with my Takara MPM-04; it tabbed together in vehicle mode and looked great in robot mode, and had the better-matching greys and the blue foot deco the Hasbro one was missing... and this thing makes the superior version of the official mold look like a toy. It's a FAR more satisfying purchase, and it's cheaper than the official.
Like, seriously, that sculpt is amazing. For Has/Tak to NOT apply the quality deco to it that Legendary Toys did is absolutely a shame.
Too bad they missed the side mirrors, but I almost feel like if I mask off that area I can do it myself with a silver paint pen, and then the deco will basically be perfect.
Me and @MasterPogee1980 page 97 i think lol
Is it wiggly at your copy? Cause mine tend to after sanding it though i just minimally sand it, so i tend to use a glue (standard glue) just to thicken out the waist pin and have some more round friction
Thanks to @Seth Sunthay for posting the website for the item tf accessory for mpm 4/lt02 ebay and for great price
First of all, thank you for the post on how to do the DIY.
Mine isnt floppy. I only sanded the edges/corners very very lightly.
No prob dude
Oh maybe i just sanded it too much
now this is, i want this... So cool
My LT02 order from ShowZ Store seems to have gotten stuck at the JFK airport sorting facility for the last 6 days. Grrr.
EDIT: customs finally cleared it! Boy, that particular JFK international sorting center has endless comments on their site of people who have ended up waiting on their items for several months! Yikes!
My copy too stayed at customs so long before i could get him
How long did yours stay in customs?
I wonder what their problem is as far as getting things through in a more expeditious manner. I'm lucky compared to the stories I've read on that site.
6 days just stucked,
Maybe its just there are so many packages being held at customs, just a seasonal basis?? Dunno at your country if it is like that
Alright ShowZ, get this dude out to me!!!
mine was in customs that long as well
I'll definitely be picking up that left handed blaster with dual hooks set.
Would someone be able to post a close up photo of Prime's face? On the Hasbro version, the face was set too low, but it looks to sit more correct (higher) in the helmet for LT02.
Oh that looks fantastic! Thanks again!
I've already changed Optimus hands with the articulated hands from MrBucket.
LT02 with Mr Bucket add on:
Still, I don't know how to make the hand holds the axe.
Is it the mr bucket01b? The silver hand version? Cause it looks dark gun metal grey in the pic
No, I got mine the MR01, the metalic black version.
Glad I wasn't the only one to pick up the dark grey. I like it better that the hilts/weapons match the hands.
Also, shouldn't the fingers be able to wrap around the axe securely with all the knuckle joints they have?
