    The ports for the door wings are also not aligned properly, as you can see one sits down a lot more than the other. I wouldn’t mind if this cost like £50 but these things are so expensive the quality control should be better C6D318B8-0894-4B5C-AF70-6E68DC9507C3.jpeg

    Kuma, would this be the pinnacle of all mecha toys you have handled in your life? I know that you've handled high price tag items like those from Fewture, but you've only recently started to touch ThreeA/ThreeZero stuff. Hong Kong companies don't subscribe to the high status notion of using diecast.

    I was kicking myself for not getting the exclusive version but it’s just an extra head and since the one I have had the two eye colors I’m happy with the one I have. The red paint looks awesome anyways.

    Yea, it's nice to have the "option" of the regular head but the red marking is so much more appealing to me and just plain fits his deco better. And like you just said, with the multiple led colors, he's no longer Nemesis even. It's legit the most up-to-date movie Prime deco.

    The red paint is the only difference, as both heads alternate between colors. After I didn't order the exclusive of ROTM Megs, I kicked myself in the ass for not having done so. I originally was ONLY going to get exclusive DOTM Bee, Megs was hard to pass, but....then the finals images of DOTM Optimus came out and, as they say, the rest is history. I ultimately paid just a little more, to get the non-exclusive Megs from BBTS, and all the rest have been direct. It's nice now that 3A will split payment. My personal lesson was just order the damn thing right away from 3A and I'll have no regret later!
    I also always use PayPal credit, so I'm able to split the payment over 6 months, which definitely helps.
    Sorry to kinda derail here, back on topic.

    I didn’t get any instructions with my TLK Prime, seems like the QC is at an all time low.

    I agree because ultimately these things appreciate in value over time anyway. The worst that can happen (assuming it doesn’t break) is you can sell it and get most of your money back if not all of it and it’s likely you could even make a small profit if it’s a rare one!

    I don't think missing instructions would really be called a q.c..issue, would it? I know it's not the same but if you need scans, shoot me a message and I'll see if my scanner is large enough to oblige.
