    Mine's fine after multiple transformations. I'll confess that the first transformation had me sweating, but now it's no issue anymore.

    I believe each figure in this mold has different fitment tolerances. Some came out fine, some do not fit together properly. I was unfortunate enough to get one that didn't. I was extremely careful and treated MP Megs as $100 collector's item, took about an hour to transform him, did not force anything during the transformation, and two little fragile plastic tabs broke. One was on the trigger, the other on a hip plate. Though I would still recommend MP Megs despite this, I don't like transforming him and mostly keep him in bot mode.

    When my MP Megs fell from his shelf, only his back-piece broke and it took alot of force to put it back on.

    I've had mine for seems like forever and have transformed him countless times since I bought the JustiToys add on kit. No problems what so ever. I think if you are mindful of what you are doing, you should be fine.

    ditto, no breaks here. i couldnt fully transform him so he just stands in the background on his spindly legs.

    he is by far the biggest pile of shitformer ive ever owned, parts fly everywhere when transforming the leg and waist pieces are floppy as hell. he cant support his weight with the fusion cannon. Takara had the balls to call this piece of shit a Masterpiece?

    i keep reading that, but mine supports the fusion cannon fine. also, i really came to like the transformation. very challenging but rewarding.
