    Not the most earth shattering of news but we got a solicitation this morning that MP-09 will be re-released in September to coincide with the MP-10 release.

    Looks like takara are going all out for 2 MP's each time at the moment what with Last Shot and Megs coming out at the same time.

    Is it a straight up re-release or does it have design improvements?

    Yeah I'd like to know if quality control was increased for this re-release.

    There are a few fixes for the return products.
    New parts are made to replace the weak spots, especially with the legs (panels and feet).
    Overall quality is the same.

    Just tweak some of the QC areas and I'll be happy.

    I'm inclined to take this as further evidence that Hasbro have no concrete plans for the thing.

    Great news.

    Well, I'm bit tired of some "QC syndrome" writing...even if some faults, Rodimus looks fantastic.

    Cool, I'd like to give this a shot second time around. I was put off by all the negative reports and the price in the initial run, and though I expect it to be even more expensive than the first run, the QC fixes might just make it worth a punt.

    That's great news. I passed on the first one because of the problems it had.

    This. Oh man, as usual with MP releases, a bunch of people are going to be pissed, and a bunch of people are going to be happy.

    Since I canxed my first order, I think I'm going to be in the latter category.

    Yeah, they'd better put this thing out in the states eventually. If they don't announce it at Botcon I'll be miffed.
