    I see...I think the extras are limited added bonus to those who PO the item early. Its a good thing that they keep the back cover in the succeeding run.

    Sounds like a supply/demand issue. I got mine from TF direct for a tad over $70.

    One thing that you do get from TFdirect is excellent customer service if anything goes wrong. This can be very useful when buying non TT products.

    2nd production run do not have the second cannon.

    There are some people reporting that they are getting second run figures but with the tape cut and receiving the second cannon. Most likely the retailer is adding the second cannon at his expense because the original run included the second cannon. There is also the possibility that the dealer still had 1st run figures and shipped you a first run. My order from Taobao was a 2nd run figure and it did not include the second cannon.

    ignoring any QC issues (cuz honestly, even the takara one can get horrible QC issues), IMO the IT is the best. KO megs has paint issues (or lack of, but that's easily remedied)... THF is a close ... very close tie to IT, considering they got some nifty heads and accessories. what sold me over was mostly personal choices - i wanted the backplate, and i wanted a toy i could just pickup and transform and not care about paint scuffs. everything ratchets really nicely. My damn Tak mp36 is super floppy and some tabs here adn there have came broken.

    There shoudl be two cannons in the IT-01 release. the one that is packaged in the plastic embossed with megs will have the original japanese voice and 3 notches. The second one should have the red LED and 4 notches... with the 4 notches possibly being difficult to discern. If you here chinese, then there shoudl be a 4th notch. There was another user here that found it, and i think there was a youtuber that reported 3 but eventually updated saying they eventually found the 4th notch.

    Totally dig my IT. shoved a waterslide decal on it and now my Tak mp36 is just collecting dust. the IT just feels so much more refined than the official release :/

    Yah.. I missed out on the extras and I'll just have to be contented with the Jap cannon version. I'm selling my MISB original Megs on my local ebay and no one seem to be interested... IT is the real deal and hopefully they will do more improved MP stuff in the future.

    Ahhh, thanks for clearing that up. The tape on mine was indeed cut so I assume like you say the retailer slipped a second cannon pack in with mine. Really glad that did it was one of the main reasons I wasnted IT-01.

    Odd...my second cannon (with the Welker voice chip) has a purple light, the one packaged in the tray with Megatron (same sound chip as the official release) had the red. I'm very much ok with this, it's good to have both options.

    I was surprised to see the toon emblem on my Magten KO. I thought for sure you could NOT use a company's logo on your stuff, because that is protected. I know you see it on handbags and stuff, but hell, if it's a KO it's totally illegal anyway, so why not?

    I just know it's garbage and I have to remove it now and put a real one on.

    just ordered fromShowz. Didnt think that the extra accessories were worth paying an extra $20.
