    from TFsource:

    "At this time all of our modded and unmodded MP-05 Megatrons are spoken for. If you placed your order today and we cannot fill it, we do apologize, but we fill all orders on a first come first serve basis.

    For those that preordered the unmodified they will be instock tomorrow and we will start shipping out all orders on Friday. Stay tuned for an email from our shipping team. We do not have any extras unspoken for, so please do not email begging, pleading, or offering up pics of your sister. I've received too many requests this week already."

    I put my order for one last Friday. I have the PayPal receipt to back it up. I emailed him and I think the account has been suspended. I got no shipping confirmation or anything. WTF?

    First, this isn't news. Second, what are you upset about? They said they sold out today, and are shipping orders starting later this week. They can't give you a shipping confirmation before they ship. You're fine if you placed your order last week. TFSource is rock solid, one of the most reliable online shops. No need to freak out.

    I hope youre right. I've never ordered from them before and spent a while debating it. Bah, I think it'll be fine.

    After logging on to the paypal just now, saw the payment went through. Sigh:

    Oh great. I got mine today and it's misassembled from the factory. I was gonna email curt about trading it out for me, but looks like that may not happen if he's sold out.

    Thanks alot Takara and your crappy QC. Why didn't someone catch this when they opened it to plug it?

    TFsource and Curt are awsome! So you have nothing to worry about as I can tell you if there is a issue he will correct it.

    I haven't had any issues with Curt before. I've bought my last three MPs from him as well as the last few TFCs. I would've continued to buy those from him had the line not stopped. It just sucks because this is definately an issue that needs to be traded out cause it can't be fixed without spare parts. But he can't trade it out if he's sold out.

    Now that I have pics taken, I need to shoot that email.

    TFSource is on the up and up, I ordered mine from Curt, see here http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/showpost.php?p=1219638&postcount=105


    What was wrong with it?

    EDIT: damn, you read my mind! Wow, that's just blatant... I'm amazed no one at QC saw this!

    Maybe you'll get lucky and Curt will have another broken one lying about he can swap the part with.

    That would work out to be all kinds of awesome. I'm not sure how hard that part is to remove, but I'm sure I could swap it out. I'm not taking him apart to see until I hear back from Curt. I sent the email just now.

    If you look at Megatron's right side ( your left ), you will see that red plastic with the silver paint on it. Opposite that, you see a solid red piece. They should look the same. The second pic ( of his back ) shows that the back side of that piece has the silver paint.

    During assembly, instead of giving him a left and right side piece, he got two right side pieces. The one put on the left side had to be turned backwards to fit.

    Oh, I see. Yeh, that does suck. Too bad mine came today, but I won't have a chance to inspect in for another 2 weeks. Good luck with getting yours corrected.

    damn...I was going to order an MP-05 from TFSource this week. Now I have no chance at getting Megatron at a decent price.

    I really didn't want to go to ebay and pay upwards of $150 not including shipping. :mad

    Yo IG, did you get a shipping notice before you received your Megs? I ordered mine before you did (albeit earlier on the same day I believe), and I still haven't got my notice.

    Apparently mine was shipped this past Monday, but I have not received a shipping notice either.

    But I'm not concerned. TF Source has been fantastic on all dealings I've had with them.

    Oh crap, IG, that absolutely sucks. Though, if you hadn't described the problem, I would've never seen it. Damned defect was like an optical illusion. I didn't pay attention to your thread tho, it seems, since I was about to ask you if you could just turn the piece around! :banghead:  I hope Curt can help you out somehow!

    *goes to inspect his own MP05 now...*
