    Okay so I've transformed mine finally. Everything seemed fine on it except that tail problem I noted earlier (which still isn't affecting it really since I pushed the pins in). Overall I'm actually pretty happy with it. His dino mode is a lot more stable. Not bad for $80

    The major issue of the official required half drop of dish soap to fix.

    Working to cancel my order of two and unfortunate I have to put the seller through this. I really wanted to get this figure and I'm still not convinced the official is worth $250 shipped either.

    Having gone through THF Ultra Magnus and having to accept some of things that are wrong with that product, its harder to accept even the smaller common issues being mentioned here with IT-02. Maybe next round of release and positive responses will get me back to getting this again. Until then, BW MP collection will have a missing member for awhile.

    If you are USA you could always wait for an official reissue from AJ, perfectly reasonable.

    If you can make that happen, I'm in. Let me know offline what you need from me and I greatly appreciate the gesture.

    Ko stands for $16 shipped from China if anyone's interested. You can save a bit on shipping if you buy more.

    Mine just arrived from showz. Havent transformed him yet but with a bit of massaging i got his torso to mostly tab in. It isn't perfect but it's good enough for my shelf. A tiny bit of sanding on the weapons made them fit right into the hands too. Not seeing any visible stressing or weird spots from pin issue yet either, but will find out after transformation

    Ok, after transforming it and being careful mine works pretty well. The sides get fairly close together and everything but 1 half of the tail works. 1 side doesn't pull up far enough to make into weapon mode. It doesn't seem to be a pin as both of those turn smoothly. It almost feels like the red rotating part inside the end of the tail is just too big to pull up far enough. Pretty happy with mine.
