My copy arrived to Peru this weekend. I will pick it up this Friday. Give me your energy!
I sincerely hope yours is as good as mine.
Mine may have soundchip issues, no idea, don't care but no physical issues I can see. I wish the same for everyone who purchases this!
If anyone still wants these, they're still available on eBay via many Sellers for reasonable prices shipped.
I just got mine in, and aside from the Vulcan/Laser sound swap, he's perfect. Never experienced the mold before, and he's already jumped into my top 5 versions of Optimus.
I hope TakaTom looks into these issues, rectifies them before reissuing the set again.
And maybe give us the Black version of these along with that.
@chroma23 over on Facebook just shared 3D printed leg ratchet upgrades for Fire Convoy. Chroma Hands
Got mine out of the box tonight and besides some near negligible paint issues it is perfect. Everything lines up perfectly and his ankles are almost to stiff to move (really tight but just enough give as not to stress the plastic) so standing is not an issue. I am extremely glad I decided to take a chance on get it. Thinking of getting a second one to have MISB. Going to order a set of replacement hip ratchets and a weapon adapter and really make him stable. If you are going to get the hip ratchets I would recommend using a light film/application of plastic grease to reduce the friction as the joins are pretty tight already; the grease will not change the stiffness of the joint but prevent unnecessary binding between detents.
Finally received my copy! I finally can sleep! No warped feet or swapped parts! All fits excellent! Just some minor QC with some connectors of the inner parts not noticeable in any way and don't interfere with transformation or anything. Haven't tested the sounds yet. This set looks glorious on the new colors and the sword is MASSIVE. THe plastic do feels lighter and not as good as the original ones, but it's not bad.
I will try to share pictures tomorrow.
Glad it worked out. That’s why I say it never hurts to be positive. Enjoy that, meng.
Is it me or does this look like Optimus Prime Elton John Edition
Awesome news! Enjoy!
Cool. Can't wait for your pics.
The power of positivity always works in the end.
most of the time
Very quick picture at my desk at school. I am so happy with this set. Colors are brilliant and really shine. I use to ahve the orignal releases, and I can see the difference in colors. Have to admit, materials are not the same as the old ones, but's it's just modern plastic. Not terrible. The God Sword is simply astonishing.
I just checked the sounds and, they are awesome! They really re-recorded a lot of phrases from the show. They sound a long way better than the plain sounds on the original releases. Got the swapped sounds, but I doubt someone who is nor really familiarized with the Japanese show would ever notice it. Awesome job on the new sounds. I still spending time with them.
Official letter from TakaraTomy with a cheque refund for Encore God Fire Convoy and a Child's Gift Certificate worth 1,500 yen

A little tongue and cheek with the gift check but they are a toy company.
Glad I kept my two copies
Me too. Definitely going to be worth something in a year or so if I ever change my mind and move on from the item.
Complete collectors item now.
Yea. Prices almost doubled when I read Facebook posts of a possible recall 2 days after I ordered my MISB one. My dad couldn't believe it was then taken off amazon JP. He said I did a slick move. Glad he's become so supportive of my hobby.
