    I was going to get this, but that mod video is really offputting for the backplate if you want it for MP36, which I did.

    How's the quality of your THF Megatron? Any flaws worth mentioning?

    I got no ones, at least mine.


    However it its worth mention that some 1-2 bits don't tab at fully, but it's not noticeable neither annoying.

    This /\. I’m not spending money on an upgrade kit only to be knifed to hell to get the piece to hopefully fit ( which looks like shit while on the figure as it don’t even sit flush afterwards ) . This is just a quick cash grab for those who want the FW sound chip ( which also sounds like utter crap ).

    I just got to chance to watch that video and I am dumbfounded. This will definitely keep me from buying any product they put out in the future. Now, does anyone else make a backplate for MP-36?

    That DIY thing is shitty.

    The canon itself is awesome and the clip quality is great for what I was expecting but the mod u need to do? That blows.

    I'm gonna verify if that's actually the case...

    The sound they used for the blast is a dealbreaker

    It would have been nice if they included 2 backplates....one of them fitted for the official MP36. Then again maybe Takara should have included a backplate with MP36 to begin with. Then again Takara fans would cry foul saying that would be partsforming. In the end you can't please everybody to the fullest all the time.

    Is this the same one as the one that Show.Z Store is offering?

    How so? It’s the cartoon blaster sound. Didn’t sound amazing quality but hard to know if it’s the cannon itself or the video recording.

    Well I don’t give a poo about some pointless partsforming cover, so when I get my cannon anyone’s welcome to the cover for postage cost.

    I'll admit, having to trim it to fit the official and KO MP-36 is really bad form. However, if you own the character the cover was made for (IT-01) it looks amazing. Of course it's not for everybody. I'll take it off your hands when you get it if no one else has approached you about it.

    But, if you buy the IT-01, it already comes with a cover, no?

    The initial release did, but unless things have changed. I remember a lot of people saying the second batch would not include the backplate, [prototype] modfans cannon or extra Kremzeeks.

    I'm your huckleberry! (If nobody's claimed it yet. I don't care for the electronics, so I'd love to get just the plate!)

    When the official and the mod kit have so many issues you were better off buying the KO...

    Well that's a bummer. Maybe they'll do a v2?

    I just ordered the IT Megatron off TaoBao last night, so suspect it will be the 2nd run. I also have the modfans kit coming from Show.Z store soon. Hopefully I'll have both delivered in the next week or two and will see how they go together. Hoping the sound is good.
    But honestly, with all the sound and light gimmicks I have (Constructors head, Shockwaves cannon, Spark Toys Spartacus chest lights, the light up head and matrix for MP-10 plus who knows what others) I rarely if ever use them.
    Heck I just received the MP Teletraan 1 today and I'll probably customize it with new lights and speakers, but even then, it probably won't get used more than half a dozen times.
    The only way that these kind of gimmicks are really worth while long term, is if you're @songrobin and are able to wire them all up to mains power and light up the entire collection at once. Now that is a light up gimmick!!
