    I went to that TRU today and there are STILL four MPM-03’s on the shelf! Not sure if they’re the same four or not. But the price is ridiculously low now. $43.43 Canadian!! I have an extra copy that I’ve been trying to sell since it released and I have no hope of selling it against that sale. I’ve included a pic of the shelf. And incidentally I bought that last Barricade as a second copy for alt mode because $70 is pretty great for that figure in my opinion!

    Note how those security devices are creasing the boxes. Very annoying.

    Same. It was one of the reasons I kicked the MP habit.

    Very solid stand alone figure - my only Movie figure except for the recent SS Starscream and a very worthy one, IMO. Was thinking about collecting some MPM carbots, but the outrageous prices and source inaccuracy, combined with only the marginal improvement relative to their SS counterparts make me think this will be my lone MPM as well

    I meant the part where you flip his head out, it wasn't going all the way in but I managed to force it in and now it's normal. I had problems with transforming the torso like everyone else but I spent a good hour trying to get the sides in because I thought I was connecting the torso hinges incorrectly but I guess that's just how it is. Really makes me reluctant to transform him back to car mode but I'll do it eventually. I would take pictures but the camera quality on my iPad sucks and it's the only thing I have lol.

    Need more info. Nothing appears wrong.

    He designed joints that allow the small wings to rotate.

    After I wrote that, I saw a few pages back that all it takes is unscrewing the screw slightly, and it'll rotate. Is that true? Seems to good to be true.

    Yeah I got it fixed, I was referring to the part of the hood you rotate for the head, it tabbed in but didn’t go all the way in leaving a gap between it and the chest but I forced it in and now it’s fine.

    It's your preference. Undoing the screw will let you rotate the wing so the point is facing up but the arm that connects it to the door will still be facing out. The redesigned arms allow you to swivel the wings so they are facing outwards instead of their armature.

    You have to PM @savio-prime I'm not sure he still sells them. There is a pin that has to be removed so if you're not apt to that, don't bother... and you have to paint the new arms too.

    i’m a bit late to the party but I have no doubt someone else has this problem. no matter how hard i try, i can’t tab his ab piece in, and consequently, can’t tab the side pieces in. also his left hip is missing the outward ratchet and his headlights are different colors. did i just get a really unlucky copy? (i ordered from eBay) i can provide pictures if necessary.
