    Yup. Agreed. So far it's looking grim guess we.may never know in hand because I'm not paying 50 bucks when I'm getting the TakaraTomy Caliber. And quite possibly a voyager from them as well if and when they do one with accuracy wide range release

    I beg to differ, the quality of the plastic is actually worse than any previous movie toys.

    my TLK voyager Optimus Prime is the victim of this, (just a day after I got him) the connector between his thigh & leg cracked/snapped in half of the round top when I'm trying to transform him into truck mode. At that time a circle piece of plastic just suddenly drop out of nowhere & after checking thoroughly I realized it came from the joint because the leg became extremely loose.

    the bumper was having a crack because of tight connection when forming the Truck front.

    the back was also having a crack on the connector of his door kibbles (this one was might be my fault because I put a lot of pressure when pushing all the kibbles to fit together in the back)

    all of this wouldn't happened (especially the first one) if only the plastic was made with a better material. :(

    well, my brother fixed all those problems and he's (mostly) alright now.

    though I still have to transform him reaaaalllly gently now, considering he might be crumbling like a cookie if I put too much force.

    here's hoping that maybe in the future Takara will give him a "Movie Best" treatment and make him with better quality plastic.

    I'm not surprised they're doing a TLK toy. I'm just surprised it's another OP considering the other exclusive.

    Looks great, but this is really how the mainline figure should have looked...

    I agree- even this paint scheme is somewhat less than it should be. It would have been acceptable for the wide release. It would be nice if the premium deco added more detail than this has.
