    Got my MP-13 yesterday and broke my 4 year record in not posting a review online :) 

    [​IMG]

    Comes with quite a lot of cool stuff! And now I have 4 Megatron Guns lol.

    Love how he can press his own eject button.

    Laserbeak Alien Chest burster

    Hardpoints for Laserbeak on the wrist and shoulder

    Energon Cube. I already put the papercraft in ;)

    Alt mode

    Only problem is the hollow area in the ass area of alt mode. I don't mind it, but it is a flaw..

    In summary EXCELLENT figure. I've been waiting for this ever since it was announced and it does not disappoint. Don't wait for local release, get it NOW!!! You don't want to miss out, look what happened with MP Grimlock!

    Catch my full review at my blog - Ace's Weblog – Anime, Figures, Fanfiction - Now revived! And I have tons of new figures to review in the pipeline (all Transformers lol)

    Word of warning for those who have him: his index fingers can 'pop out' so be careful when fiddling with them e.g. posing him to 'eject' Lazerbeak. It has happened to me a few times. Nothing serious in terms of breakages - just pop the finger back.

    The concern is the index finger may fly to 'parts unknown'! LOL!

    Yeah it's the same as Optimus MP-10 ... just don't finger too hard and it should be ok ;)

    Thank you for the review and the beautiful pictures. My only gripe is that the wait for him seems even harder.

    I'm waiting for the Hasbro version (because it's very likely they'll do him) in the hopes that he has yellow eyes...

    Every pics of him look very awesome, can't wait to have him.
    -This pop off index figure does bug me. My MP10 is force to wear the enegon ax cause that side of the index figure pop off very easily.
    -How big is Soundwave box?

    Looks cook.

    Soundwave, being possibly the most iconic toy of the 80s, surely will get a Hasbro release..ill wait for that.

    Thanks for the review!

    So no paint problems like a lot of people reported on MP Sideswipe?

    None that my friends and I can find. Hard to believe but it seems TT finally got a MP release right in terms of paint job. No scratches or paint chips on the key areas such as face, visor, chest area - nothing. A real pleasant surprised! LOL!

    Is the box the same size as MP-10 and MP-11?

    Those two don't have the same size box either, so that would be rather difficult...

    Great! Mine is in my Pile of Loot until Giant gets restocked and Hardbone arrives, and waiting on it is easier with all the good QC reports. :)  Thanks for the response.

    Really? I don't have MP-11, but I thought I read the box matched MP-10's size wise. Woops.

    I posted this in another thread, but here would be more appropriate. Theres something I've wandered for some now... Some people have talked about the fingers popping off like MP 10's did. From the pics tho, they look like the exact same hands that were used from Prime. Can anyone confirm that?

    I have a question...Some ppl have already stressed their fears about the hip joints on SW saying that they feel those joints could end up breaking,do other MP-13 owners out there share this feeling?

    Curious. All those slots or markings on the side of the tape deck mode make it look like he's supposed to have one of those multi-memory-card readers built in.
