    Does Lio Convoy transform into a Seagull? :lol

    Amazon has him at a 50% discount for the preorder of the October reissue now, I put in an order just in case :)

    Sorry for bumping a dead thread, but my MP-48 finally arrived after getting stuck in Japan Post purgatory since mid-March and returned to Mandarake, before being beamed over to me via DHL this week. It's a cool figure and I'm happy to finally have it. Very satisfying figure for a ratchet-joint lover like me.

    Took a pic with his predecessors.

    His shoulder being so big is really a detriment to my enjoyment of the figure. This is the first MP BW figure I have buyers remorse for..

    Any particular reason for the huge discount on Amazon.jp? I'm not a BW fan but given that I might end up not getting any MP figure this year I might give him a try.

    I’m not sure but they’ve been doing it with several G1 MP and MPM figures lately. Usually it happens after the release date though. In this case it’s a large discount and it’s not even shipping until October which is strange.

    I’ve never seen any BW shows but I’ve been collecting the BW MPs because they look amazing. MP-48 looks great in person and as far as I know didn’t have any major quality issues. His elbows can be tight from the factory but you can loosen the screws to fix it. And it can get some paint wear on the bot arms from transformation but it’s on the back of the arms so you don’t see it from the front. Tons of ratchet joints too.

    They chose to reissue him when he's still pretty available from his initial release(feb)

    They determined we can't catch it from cats
    I checked my order and seems when I ordered it it was even lower than it is now. This was going to be the one BW figure I passed on but then the price dropped and I figured, what the heck!

    Went out for some essential shopping, came home with this. Best impulse buy I made this year so far.

    He really does look spectacular. He’s one of the nicest bots on my shelves for sure.
