    Well, for those who don't like the new paint apps and apparent lack of chrome on Hasbro's new re-issue (not to mention the ridiculous blue gun), here you are. Just be prepared to take a hit in the wallet. >_>'

    Quick question for anyone who's ordered from TFSource before,

    Do they ship with UPS or USPS?

    I thought this second wave had his trailer? Or am I missing something? Those prices are really low for the figure with a trailer. Wasn't once mentioned it'd be close to $200.00 because of the new trailer??

    The trailer version is technically MP-04. This is just the straight re-release of MP-01. MP-04 won't be out for a little while yet.

    I dunno. Is there really a point to buying one of these when a shrunken, less expensive, and more dynamic version exists?

    Are you saying it doesn't already look like arse in truck mode? It's an extra $100 for only a slightly better(but still bad looking) truck mode. It's not worth it from that angle.

    I ordered the MP-01/ MP-03 promo from Action HQ, and I got my Prime today.

    A couple of things now that I have had a chance to play with it.

    One of the legs would not stay locked open. The seam on the blue diecast was loose. After tightening a couple screws, its perfect. Whew.

    In the plastic that held the laser gun, the Megs pistol, and the energon axe, was a little two-piece rubber thing. What is this for? Is this for connecting the trailer box?

    Ah. Thank you for the clarification. I could've sworn I'd read somewhere that the MP-01 reissue was scrapped in favor of MP-04.

    Geez...people will just buy this mold over and over and over....

    From what I understand, the MP-01 re-release was for Hong Kong only. The Japanese preorders were canceled. I had already preordered mine before MP-04 was anounced, and I was afraind that Action HQ would charge me more because some of the online retailers said that because of the limited reissue of MP-01, it would cost more. But they didn't.

    Ok guys, I'd noticed a problem. You see, restocks for MP-01 had arrived sometime back in Singapore with some of the specialty shop receiving theirs as early as in 3rd week of June. Some of my guys had preordered these as they'd probably missed out doing so the 1st time round. Guess what?? This batch of MP-01s that were released in Singapore were in really bad shape as 3 of my guys had experienced breakage of limbs while transforming them. (Yes, right, the LIMBS just broke off during transformation) :mad  Seems that the plastics used for this batch were really inferior as compared to the initial ones that were released. Did any of you guys out there face the same problem too? Please update accordingly, many thanks!
