    Check back with us in another month before you draw a conclusion. The same material and more or less the same methods were used for all the batches, so if there are so many units being defective straight out of the box, i am willing to put my money on that eventually most if not all of the units will end up being the same. It is just a matter of how much mileage you got in there. You apparently got a higher mileage one but but it doesn’t mean you are out of the woods yet.

    Even if it were so for you, it is still a scandal squarish right in the face. In the world of transformer toys, having this many breaks and problems out of the gate indefinitely qualifies it as a scandal in my book. Not sure how you define the word but the Webster definition sure seems appropriate for this.

    Got mine from TFSource yesterday. He's perfect! My favorite MP to date! I feel bad for those who are having problems but if you get a good one he is the perfect example of a MP!

    Are they accepting returns though? Acknowledging a 'design fault' is surely grounds to do so?

    Seems like the plastic budget went into the soft top

    Has Nippon yassan shipped any hounds yet? Feels like mine has been in preparation for a week or more.

    Seems like a growing trend. Amiami also has fallen for the "in preparation" trap. Mine took 5 days before shipping.

    Really dig the seating ability, the new Spike and holo figures, and all the console details.

    Lol of course AmiAmi finally shipped out my replacement Hound... with SAL. Guess I'll find out in 2 or 3 more weeks whether to just give up. Waiting's going to suck.

    They really should have said “materials fault” rather than “design fault”.

    Thx for bringing us joy in this thread with those great pics, because a flawless figure remains amazing. For some reasons, it didn't turn that way for far too many people unfortunately. I haven't received mine yet but it seems to be the case of good luck only ...

    Oh, cool, you've handled my personal figures? Wow.

    And yes, my MP-44, 43, and an slew of other figures I've done minor mods/fixes to do, indeed, work better than new. Sorry if that's so hard for you to believe. But yes, I can.

    Again man, different mindsets, different experiences, etc. I've handled and transformed my Hound at length, with no problems. So no, I'm not letting some fear of the unknown spoil my enjoyment.

    I had this mindset when I first transformed mine. I thought "If it breaks, I'll send it back," so I had no fear. Sure, it would have sucked to pack them back up and drive to the post office to mail them back, but life as we know it would not have ended. I didn't actively try to break them, but I wasn't exactly delicate either. I haven't completely transformed mine many times, but I have visually inspected and actuated all of the problematic hinges a few times a day to check for deterioration. So far, all is well. My supposition is that, if it hasn't broken by now (with normal to 'rushed' handling), it ain't gonna. Well, at least in the next 5 to 10 years. If it does break around that time frame, those claiming this is a scandal can point and say "Hah hah!" and "I told you so!"

    MP-10 isn't even 10 years old... oh no... what if I wake up one morning and he's a pile of dust? SCANDAL! TAKARA IS ENGINEERING IN PLANNED OBSOLESCENCE AND PHYSICAL DRM!
