    Appreciate it. I'm nearly at the point where I'm about to put in a preorder on this guy, but that's the one detail that I'm holding out on. But I'm only giving Takara until Jan 1st to provide an alternative, or I think I'll go this guy regardless.

    Sorry to hear about the shoulder issues in your review. Have you tried seeing a physical therapist? They might be able to help some, I used to have issues with a frozen shoulder that has been mostly worked out thanks to seeing one.

    Should just go ahead and order... You really can't lose at this point. Price is perfect, resale value will get you most if not all of your investment back when Megs 2.0 is released... Meanwhile you'll have an awesome figure in your collection while you wait.

    Thanks for the concern - it's actually tendonitis in the elbow -had acupuncture etc etc on it. seeing a chiro who is actually helping quite a bit. I just have to be a bum with no lifting, twisting etc.

    That might be true, if I didn't have abismal selling skills. I tend to buy things & just never get around to selling them when I'm done.

    I just really want to be certain that I'll be happy with whatever I get.


    Has it been diagnosed as tendinitis? Sounds almost like the frozen shoulder (adhesive capsulitis) I had a while back. Basically the muscles in my shoulder completely froze up, and I needed PT to get it working again.

    I still have the PT exercises for it (I think) & would be happy to share. I will warn you, working out the issue is fairly painful at first.

    no -absolutely tendonitis. its in the elbow -kept me from picking up a cup of coffee and bringing it to my mouth... so i switched hands :p  i didnt give up coffee! Atm - they strip the muscle/tendon everytime i see her and she uses a laser gizmo to send good waves into my arm. personally she's pretty cute so i let her do whatever but it has been helping.

    Still sounds exactly like frozen shoulder & the laser treatment from my chiropractor definitely helped, but so did certain exercises.

    Mine is a test-shot, and i have already semi mangled it. Transforming it into gun mode sorta happened - better result of the gun mode will be in the finale review -whoever gets it.

    He admitted in his review he was partly at fault for the mangling... Remember, he's going at it with no instructions nor youtube videos showing the transformation.

    hey slayback, regarding the shoulder that tabs in - do you mean it tabs in so that the weight of the fusion cannon doesn't make the arm loose? basically opposing the weight of the cannon?

    Like I said earlier, they should use silver metallic paint. The picture above, the color makes the plastic look cheap.

    Gotta be careful with paint... If soar is any lesson, painted joints and areas that touch leads to scuffs and chips...
