    Finally got mine today. I must say he is amazing. The paint job on this guy is superb. So far my only gripe is the swords don't seem to peg too well into his arms. You have to really push them in there and they go in real tight so removing them I have to be really careful. I just can't get over on how well the paint job is on this guy it just I have no other words to say on how great the paint job is on this guy. Now I'm waiting on UT to release their challenger so I can put him next to this Optimus.

    Two screws that hold it on by the inside of the roof section I believe.
    Should be a pretty easy fix!

    Sweet! Thanks for that. Hey, what do i do with the old part? I wonder if there's a Transformer fan out there who has been taking these parts left over, and combining them into his own TRANSFORMERS?? Kinda like Autobot Spike! LOL

    Sorry, I forget, did they switch the little blue pieces on the roof to the correct spots? That's the first mod I did on MPM4 and I don't want to do it again.

    My only gripes:

    -The smokestacks feel loose but at least they can tab properly.
    -The unpainted side-window's visor.
    -Lack of some golden bits (just nitpick)
    -And the pure black windshield, i think i may swap those translucent parts with the ones from my official one, i actually like his gears inside of the chest.

    This seller has gone rogue. May have once been reliable, but no more.

    Fingers crossed that mine went through before he went rouge. Although normal shipping time from China says I should have received mine a day or so ago. Tracking still shows "Acceptance" in China since 6/24/18. Last week I reached out to raona222 and he said he's following up with the local PO to see what's going on. When did yours arrive? What city do you live in?

    **ATTN**
    If anyone has purchased from Ebay seller raona222 anytime on 6/20/2018 or after and
    -you still haven't received your item
    -the tracking number stopped updating
    -you never received a tracking number
    -raona222 stopped responding to your messages or never responded at all

    Your order will not see the light of day. Also the seller has ridiculously slashed preces. Ex. Fanstoys Apache for $61 shipped.

    Call Paypal, speak to a live customer service agent and start your refund process. This seller has turned scammer.

    Thanks to Show.Z, I got the replacement arm piece. While I'm still frustrated with LT02 itself, I'm at least happy I have a figure to have on display.
