    welp!

    Other than some minor paint-scrapes (like that on the right-thigh corner) no hinge-cracks or breakages still...

    It was tight at first during transformation.

    Read about some in this thread saying the plastic is easy to break or brittle or something, but it weren't on mine. The plastic is about the same quality as any of the MPs I have. I don't have the recent BBv2/MP-45 to compare, tho.

    The matte-finish is fine, too.

    So mine's all good.

    Some of us won't just settle in order to "catch 'em all".

    Patience is a virtue and there's more to life than the "completing one's collection before I die" type mentality that is very common here at TFW. Well, at least for some of us.

    I'm glad owning a 3P representation of Hound filled that important gap for you though.

    Thanks.;)  I'm not a lifer, just got transferred to this cellblock from Gunpla Block, so having hound made by someone else other that TT doesn't bother me.

    Gunpla is even worse if you only do MG. Still waiting to finish the first season 00 Gundams.

    Hell, I'm creeping back into it and noticed the lack of poly caps on Barbatos. I'm...not sure how I feel about that.

    Think most newer MGs shy away from polycaps for the most part. My backlog is pretty deep so my last "new" kit was the F91 2.0 and I don't believe that had any. The RE:100s still do though

    So that's the route they've taken huh?

    Hm. I know after I finish Barbatos I still have that beast Sazabi screaming at me to do, but I'll get some Sengoku SDs. I like the anime on YouTube Bandai has been showing.

    Add me to the list of people who are extremely happy with this guy! I can't quit fiddling with him, he's just so much fun to pose! And I discovered that if you slide his head forward, he actually has more of a neck than I realized at first. I was initially a little disappointed in his limited head movement so this was a welcome discovery.
    After reading about so many cracks I went over mine with a magnifying glass (literally) and I can't find anything wrong with mine. I am so sorry for all of those dealing with broken Hounds but there are definitely others of us who don't have any issues.

    ya know?

    MP-47 could've used a bit more of tiny tabs.

    At least with the side-covers of the feet.

    The current tiny gapping can trigger OCD...

    Nope, according to that one guy you just mishandled your expensive figure.

    In all seriousness, it sucks, hope you get it sorted out.

    I had the exact same one out of the box. Same side and everything! The part broke off but some glue helped it.

    I like this figure so that didn’t hurt my feelings on it too much.
