    What's the chance if MP Megs breaking? I'm planning on transforming Megatron into his alt. mode and I'm most worried about the arms and the plastic piece that holds the upper and lower bodies together. And do you recommend removing the shoulder pieces?

    As long as your slow, careful and don't try to force everything into place, you should be ok.

    Be prepared for annoyance though.

    Remove shoulder pieces and hip pieces as they will fall off anyway.

    Be wary of the tabs on his thighs. Be careful to fold everything away properly when compressing the torso.

    Robot -> gun is much more complicated than gun -> robot, IMO.

    Any of the little tabs will break. Be careful not to twist parts that are meant to be pulled and vise versa.

    Treat it like a fragile Masterpiece item and not a toy, and you should be fine. Go slow when transforming it, and use the manual until you have it memorized. Also, hold the elbows securely when bending them (to give them a little extra reinforcement) as they're known to crack during posing.

    Fixed. Takara used some of the cheapest plastic and die-cast they could find to stay under budget, and this poorly-planned mess of a figure was born.

    ...

    Anyway, be weary of the small tabs that clip the trigger section for gun mode. One of mine broke off just by unclipping it for the transformation in the first day I had it.

    Cheap, overpriced POS...

    I have had mine for about 2yrs and hes STILL on robot mode and will stay way cause I don't want to break anything on him. I hate that hes so fragile but oh well I love him just the way hes in anyway.

    I also TF'd him without instructions the first time. Took me an hour, though.

    I've had mine forever and transformed it tons of times since I got the add-on kit. I treated it with care, but never really babied it. You should be fine as long as you aren't the star of a Geico commercial...
