    When someone is missed, I keep launching plunger arrows and keep missing. So yes, sadly he was missed.

    Maketoys Downbeat has been awesome and feel Bounceback would fit well with MP39. So much cool stuff to mix together.

    I like how despite being different molds and robot mode designs, they seem to look almost identical in design and scale in their alt modes from what I've seen! :)

    Dont know if this is useful info to anyone, but the real windshield can be slid off of its mounting. In alt mode lift the front trunk, open the doors, push lightly on the front yellow tab of the window (under the wiper blade). The top will seperate from the roof, then just lightly push up to slide the window off its mounting

    Yeah that came off on me the first time I transformed mine... Almost defecated because I thought at first that it had broken off.

    I need to get this in a g2 colour scheme. Maybe sideswipe style with the colours reversed or based off that canceled g2 sideswipe which had a sun on the hood

    Well damn. Received mine today and it has a factory error. The gray bits by the wheels on the bottom of the vehicle mode are the same piece. Any one have a similar issue?

    Why'd they raise the price all of a sudden?

    Most of the retailers ditch the discount after release. HLJ normally keeps their 20%. Being they all have in stock with preorder discount still availabel could be a sign they are losing business to Amazon JP.

    HLJ's price was always 9,600 yen. Never 8,400. That was AE.

    What's AmiAmi's price now? (EDIT: it's 9,140 yen= $82.34) not sure if that was the original price or not.

    Unboxed this guy after a week of work. Very impressive engineering. This is how you work symmetry and detail into the design. The sculpt and colour is wonderful. Consistency in paint application. The fit is very, very good, and I am happy there isn't that much fiddly Wardog-esque tabbing.

    That said, there is a lot of swiveling and pivoting. With the exception of a few ratchets, he's all pins and swivels. I agree with the assessment of how well he'll hold up over time. I don't like the hood/windshield pivot. I hope that centre part that it pivots around will hold up.

    Those legs, though, are magic. That's how you do it.

    How fast do they usually sell out of Masterpieces? Seems like that will be the only way I can get him for under $100 without going the KO route.

    My set up is almost exactly the same except I substitute Silverstreak for Bluestreak. I don't like how muddled his colors are and love the "pop" of the all silver, just like my old G1 toy. (Blue Bluestreak works too but I almost feel like he's his own thing and not really an Ark crew dude.)

    Streak is my only MP that sits in a box in the closet. I'd sell him I guess, but it would feel wrong to break up the band, you know?
