    It is better to file your refund claim through Paypal so that you got your money back in 10 days or less.
    See the instructions in the thread: China Ebay Seller Check - New-comers READ FIRST POST!!

    Thanks.
    Here's the updated link for USA customers. About $20.55 USD shipped to the USA.

    Isn't there a video tutorial somewhere?

    Don't let FOMO get you on this one, he sucks. Car mode looks like ass, gap on his neck, chubby cheeks face sculpt and shitty articulation.

    Works for me. Still beats the mess out of chrome rusting, almost no undercarriage having, plastic tire having, flat chested MP-28 overall IMO.

    yeah, it honestly didn't blow me away when I owned it. MP09 remains my stand-in for now until someone makes a real MP hot rod.

    If KBB (I think that's who it was) made a smaller MP09 like they did MP10 it would be THE MP Hot Rod.

    All they'd have to do would be better-looking hands, maybe some modified shoulder joints and diecast for all the thin easy to break parts. Surprised no one has done it tbh....

    Not sure why it's so impossible. There have been plenty of deluxe figures over the years that handled things pretty well- not sure why that last push is causing so much trouble. (especially since MP09 basically looked fine)

    Man, Rodimus is UGLY, I’m loving Hoodlum, waiting for a new and better Rodimus.

    Couldn’t agree more. For being such an important character, I’m surprised nobody has given it a try.

    And Carry isn’t in the conversation. Far from a Masterpiece.

    Rodimus is ugly, but Hot Rod is smoking.

    Hoodlum isn't perfect but he's the best Hot Rod we're probably going to get unless somehow Xtransbots can make one, but it's unlikely they will beat both Fanstoys and Takara.

    I want a G1 Rodimus that is only Rodimus and doesn't try to cram Hot Rod into the same figure.

    Hoodlum is my stand-in Rodimus for CHUG, so the limited articulation is on par with Hasbro stuff lol

    It may take a Hasbro Rodimus to be released (I'm looking at you Earth Rise) and then it being OSd to fit an MP collection

    Why wasn't Hoodlum released in the first place with adjustable shoulders? How many years was its dev cycle? I mean damn

    I still like it just fine, but it's also just kind of standing there, and it's eminently replaceable if somebody improves on it.

    I have one Hoodlum and about 8 or 9 mp28/40s. ...Hoodlum is weak compared to the others. He can’t pose for shit.... and his transformation sucks. My opinion so yea .... my opinion
