    I dunno if it's been covered but basically your Hasbro Rodimus is at risk even MISB. IIRC the main problems are shoulders, knees and ankles. I've read stories of arms falling off straight out of the package, all you can do is be careful. The knees are generally weak and again, all you can do is be careful. The ankles are basically under too much pressure because the spring the factory used to too strong. If you try and transform it the springs may dig into the plastic and shred itself, however this is something you can fix though. Just take the ankle assembly apart (IIRC I did it myself waaay back when MP-9 was new) take the spring out and get a pair of wire snips and take off a couple of loops. Reassemble and job done.

    Also you can get replacement shoulder and knee joints if yours do pack in, so it's not a 100% disaster. Having said that my V1 Takara MP-9 (after doing the ankle fix) has been fine all these years, but admittedly he's spent most of his time in the box and whenever he is out I have been as careful as I could possibly be... like not breathing near it.

    Oh shit yes, I am totally up for Baywatch this year. That Dwayne Johnson is so dreamy. Oh yeah, and scenery like this.

    It'll do I suppose.

    You really should try to refrain from too much of that kind of thing, otherwise you'll go blind.

    You really won't like watching Season 1 of True Detective, then. I wouldn't bother. ;)

    Sir! I may very well be a wanker but I am not an amateurish wanker! The very thought! I bid you good day!
    No, I won't be shaking hands. I said good day!

    Yeah that's right, rumours of my death have been greatly exaggerated.
