C'mon man it's too early to jump into conclusions, it's only the first few of us who have gotten it so far.

I'll wait until the majority of the crowd here gets it & make a more informed judgment abt it.

amazon.jp delivered mine to my door about an hour and a half ago.

I already want to return it.

It was mis-assembled in the chest right out of the box. For the life of me I can't get it into car or truck mode without all kinds of stressed plastic....it's gonna snap. Nothing fits. Nothing aligns. Nothing pegs into place.

Even the paint isn't very good. I expect more for the price I paid!

I guess it's a nice enough Rodimus figure....but it can't transform!

I'm so disappointed I feel like puking. All that anticipation and the toy can't even function. If anyone was on the fence I'd urge them to save their money. This thing is a total disaster.

Oh, this just reminds me of my painful experience of masterpiece 03 Starscream!

I just pray the 2 sets that I am going to pick up soon are in "good" conditions, do not look positive on this.

Wow that could be the best Masterpiece so far. the Hasbro version will not have a trailer so it is Masterpiece Hot Rod only.

Ugh.

Three hours later. Still can't get it into car or truck mode....at least not where it looks like it's supposed to. Forget about having all four wheels align on this thing...no way in hell it'll ever be able to roll. Not only that, but his freaking FACE is the lowest point on the toy....to roll it you're scraping his face along the ground and four tires going different directions!

I'd the worst design flaw is the arms. They simply can't align with the toy....the chrome pipes are a total mess. No wonder they never looked straight at toy shows....they CAN'T go straight! His hands fold up into this big jumble that gets in the way of everything.

Paint rubs and stress marks all over. Red paint from the trailer rubbed all over the yellow wings from trying to get it in the trailer.

I'm crestfallen. I honestly don't even want this POS in my house.

Hey onnsake, sorry to hear about your bad experience with this figure. :/

Do you own any other MP? If you do, did you have any similar problem with them?

It's abt the problems encountered by member onnsake. he experienced bad QC issues with his own set.

Well to be fair, regarding all those parts, pegs or whatever you may wanna call it, they do fit into place VERY tightly, it takes a lot of finagling & fiddling around in between those parts. Sometimes the fit is just so precise, a minor misalignment & everything will be a mess.

For the complex transformation junkies who bemoaned that the MP line has become simplistic with the recent MP-Grimlock, well this this will be their biggest challenge. It has a very complex & intricate transformation. A return to form for the Masterpiece line.
