    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.
