Now that he is on sale in most places? I mean, are the QC issues that bad?
It can vary but if you don't plan on transforming the figure, buy it I guess.
I've got it and the hasbro version, and for stability and problems, the hasbro version wind hands down, but I love the look of the takara version.. If I had the cash to splash, I'd buy the version 2, and ditch the version 1..
did you have any important issue with yours?
I got the V1 when it came out, and mine is practically flawless
Question is, if he does have QC issues, will it bother you or can you do the elbow work to get him fixed?
If you can fix him yourself, you should be good. The other question is, is that trailer really important to you. Not sure what his sale price is, but if it is $100, I think it's worth the risk. At like $150 or more, not so sure.
its 135, and is not for the trailer but for the accuracy to the animation model.
He's not that bad seriously. I've transformed mine several times. and the minor issues I had were fixed easily. I just wish i woulda waited till now to get him on sale.
$135 shipped? If so, that is not bad. You may get a good one. If not, most of the fixes are supposed to be easy.
Does the store say what happens if it comes broken? Can you return it, or will they send you replacement parts? If they do, then go for it. Realistically, just get some nail polish for the wing, and hope the leg panel is not broken.
Mine was flawless except for the loose backpack. I would say it is worth a shot to save approximately $70.
mm, Im not sure if the store makes that kind of deals (BBTS) maybe... if it comes broken is one different thing though.
Well message them and ask, doesn't hurt. Worst they can say is no or not respond.
$135 just fort the bit seems steep to me. Considering the fact that he retailed $200ish when he came out.. Idk, I think if you could get out for a bit less, I guess it could be worth it.. As for mine as you asked, I had pretty much the while sha-bang of problems... Done of which I fixed myself, though reluctantly so :/.. You can get a full V1 from bbts.com I think for about that price as well, just so you know..
I jumped on one at $135, too good of a price to pass up on it. I don't transform my figures (though I will check it out pretty well when it arrives to make sure none of the issues are really bad). Plan on slapping a Hasbro one under the RV even though the wheels will be off in color, and displaying the Takara as Rodimus Prime in Bot mode.
I think it is a steal at that price, just make sure to look it over well as soon as it arrives, so that if there are any issues, BBTS can take care of it.
