    I finally got MP-05 today. The customs charged me $25 on top of what I already paid, but I was ecstatic that the item had arrived safely and quickly from Hong Kong.


    It took me about 25 minutes to transform the first time, most of which I spent on the thigs and legs. I only had to consult the instructions 3 times, which is amazing, considering the complexity. This is, without a doubt, a feat of TF engineering which won't be topped for some time. The sculpt is beautiful, accessories are nice (although the chain should have been shorter), and, overall, I consider it money well spent. However, it's not without flaws, and I have some questions:
    1. On each upper side of his fusion cannon, there is a short rod which can be lifted up. Does this serve any known purpose?
    2. Can his waist be somehow fixed so it doesn't unlock every time I move the tighs around?
    3. Can the arms somehow be posed to be wide open? Arm posability seems to be really limited.
    4. The upper part of his helmet won't stay up, and the triangular eyebrows are barely visible. Is this normal?
    5. The lower back part of legs keeps unlocking from its position. It's easily fixed, but gets annoying every time I pose him. Any way to prevent this?
    6. Which parts are particularly prone to breaking?

    Thanks! However, the thread is 52 pages long... it will take me days to read through (which I will certainly do). In the meantime, can someone just give me a brief summary for the questions above?

    Ok...

    1. Nope, it was on the G1 Toy, so it is here as well...
    2. Macraptron (sp?) has a fix in the feedback thread
    3. That's pretty much it...
    4. You can use the nail polish method, but yeah it's pretty common...
    5. There is a tab where you can insert into the leg, look for it, I have a picture of this as well as other often over looked features in the feedback thread...
    6. The silver flap at the thighs, and the two tabs on the upper leg gun panels.

    Sell him while you still can. He's a big floppy mess of a toy, totally not worth it. Sell him before you break him!

    I have a question; how do you get that pesky peg on the inside cuff of his left elbow (the peg on the black circular thing) to attach to the the square hole inside? I cant seem to do it and it leaves his arm hanging out in a bad way.

    I would read the feedback thread but cmon, 52 pages? No way.

    Don't listen to him.

    MP-05 is fine as long as you don't man-handle him. He won't break and he poses well once you get a hang of the fusion cannon.

    Mine hasn't broken.

    Best TF EVAR, right behind Leader Prime and Megs.

    Homage to the original G1 toy. G1 Megatron started out as a Microman figure, and the scope, along with the stock and silencer, could be used to make a cannon turret for a Microman to use. Those handles were made for a Microman's hands.
