    I'm sorry, but personally, I find those extra details next to the insignia.....just not appealing at all.

    I know the toy had it, but damn. It's 2017.

    What version of the fig has them? So I know which one to avoid. Cause that's ugly.

    Yeah, I'm with you on that but, hey, of they want them added, good of Reprolables to provide a solution.
    It's an add on sticker set from reprolables. No need to avoid it. Some people want to go for the full G1 toy look. Not my preferred aesthetics but it doesn't impact my collection so I'm happy the solution exists for those who want it!

    Can't say I'm too big a fan of Megatron's unkempt chest hair from the toy myself either.

    Kind of going stir crazy as my camera is getting repaired (flip out screen broke off), so I decided to go back and re-edit and relight some of these pictures.

    Not sure if this is a glitch in the system, but HLJ has "Transformers Masterpiece MP-36 Megatron Orange-Capped for USA" shown in stock for 18400 YEN. But when you search for MP-36, the only result that shows up give you the "Order Stop" notification. Maybe worth taking a look for someone looking for one.

    It was the 80's, if you weren't sporting a Tom Selleck across the old man-pecs, they made you sit at the kids table and drink milk.

    On anyone else's, are the panels that fold behind the shoulder pretty damn hard to fold? Was wondering if there was a smoother way to do it

    So hard. Scared to transform him again because of them. Would also like to hear if anyone has a trick for it. I felt so sure they were going to break, scary stuff.

    Only flaw I have with this guy.

    I swivel them through but keep thinking I must be missing something. They haven't broken yet.

    I have contact with someone who can add sound to the cannon. Right now I'm looking for the best Frank Welker sound clips with no background noise to make the project possible. Any suggestions?

    Finally bit the bullet and pre-ordered the re-issue from NY. With the current exchange rate and economy registered SAL shipping to Cali he was only $170 USD. Very excited. All these awesome pictures are not making this wait easier.

    I have finally joined the MP-36 club. :p  Boy is this guy awesome or what? First time transforming him took well over an hour watching multiple videos for guides. I was literally sweating cold sweat worrying about breaking this and that. :rolleyes:  I sanded the barrel and took out that small piece where it slides into Megatron's gun barrel and sanded a descent amount of that too. Now I have 0 problems with the silencer whatsoever. The gun mode is absolutely HuuuuuUUUUGE! :eek: 

    He is VERY expensive but well worth it I say. Simply AWESOME! :D
