Do you feel like you paid top dollar for a prototype? After the recent announcement and pics of the Hasbro version I got to thinking that there is no way the design changes weren't in place for the MP-09 reissue and the Hasbro version when the first production run was already being made. The release dates are too close to argue that they went back to the drawing board and restarted production AFTER the problems with the first release. Combine the quality fixes with the added bonus of the Hasbro version having a new matrix(and new chest cavity to hold it) he can actually hold in his iconic movie pose(why didn't the Takara version use this design?) and I know I would be pretty pissed if I had bought a first run MP-09. Seems to me like buying the first release of any Takara product has proven more than once to be a bad idea, but with the prices also creeping up my tolerance for paying to be a beta tester is quite diminished.
