    Same here. I was surprised how awful the IT clips were. I just kept the switch on the cannon blast sound and even that didn't sound great.

    Wow, really? DIY.
    After they held it back for so long.
    This and THF are still cheaper and better looking than the official, I guess.

    Okay, I'm out. I have the IT version and it's sound quality isn't great - these seems to be the same. Especially annoying is the cut off transformation sound which was present there and still present in this version.

    I like how the video showcasing the sounds has a music track and the video showing some cutting and scraping of plastic doesn't.

    I don't really care about the backplate, I just want the purple light and proper cannon blast noise already :)

    The modfans kit is supposed to be in stock next week (yes really!)

    Rumor has it that modfans supplied Infinite Transformation with the kit, which is why IT Megatron had 2 canons.

    I am pretty happy with the 2nd canon I got with Infinite Transformation so if this one is the same, I'd imagine it would do the job for most people. There are plenty of sound clips to choose from and personally, I listened to like 10 or 15 of them, thought they were cool and will probably not listen to them again for a couple years. Lol.

    Great kit for anyone with the official.

    So, I have to circumcise this thing to get it to fit MP36? That is ridiculous.

    And it still doesn't fit very well.

    IIRC these 80s G1 toon phrases in the Modfans English kit are a different selection (and IMO a better selection) of voice clips than the English clips featured in the IT Megs cannon. I think I'll replace my IT canon with this.

    This feels like a "meh" for me. Seeing the back cover needs to be prep for fit seems kind a odd to me and I'm sure this will not be a cheap set $25+? Not to mention the color look off, if indeed for MP36.

    Truthfully, the only very small gripe I had with the IT two cannons is not getting the purple light for at least one of them.

    So after all that time and delay, you (the customer) have to mod this yourself? And it may be my eyes deceiving me but the switch is a translucent purple and the colors only match IT's. I don't know how I feel about this. I do like the '86 movie quotes, tho. I wished they included the "DIE AUTOBOTS" quote. Ah well. I might still get this but nothing to write home about.

    So... as unlikely as this is... anyone who's just after the back plate... want to sell me their purple LED ModFans cannon for $10?

    This situation with the back plate (not fitting MP 36) has already secured the top spot for "Disappointment of 2018." What kind of BS is this? I get it, I was waaaay too excited for this kit...so I set myself up for it. But come on. How could they not have realized that people would expect this thing to fit MP 36?

    I just wanted the purple LED and cannon blast sound anyway. IMO the biggest problem with MP-36 is that stupid pew-laser noise

    I might just take you up on that offer. I was in it strictly for the back plate. Unless the cannon totally floors me with amazing voice clips, I would let it go for $10.

    At least I get another pair of Kremzeeks.

    Check out the video posted about 14 posts back. It demonstrates all 12 voice clips. I have IT-01 which came with the back plate, extra cannon (what I consider the 'prototype' ModFans version) and the extra Kremzeeks, but the purple LED and '86 movie sound clips are an absolute must have for me. Just let me know. :)

    Not thrilled by what I am hearing. Could just be a bad recording onto FB. Once I get it, I will pop batteries into it and give it a listen. Also, that will assure that the light and sound work.

    If it isn't any better than what I am hearing you got a deal as long as you cover shipping.

    I pre ordered from show z, so it hopefully will be on its way soon.

    Almost bailed on this because of the delay, but the update helped keep me aboard. The THF, IT-01 (2) were neither perfect, nor is this. Combined variety will complete me.
    Wish we could get a complilation of Welker from Transformers Prime in a canon ^^.
    Seems these record once chips are pretty cheap. Might hobby it one day.
