    Question, does anyone know where to find this megatron at a reasonable price? I want to get this but i can't really justify paying over 200$ to get my hands on one.

    I totally have to agree with you on that! MP36 has tons of personality; especially with the different facial expressions we can put on him. I also see that you didn't close Prime's chest all the way. I'm the same way as I can't close mine without chipping the chrome bumper inside.

    What are those small versions of Prime and Megatron they're both holding? That's awesome.

    Oh cry me a river.

    I had to pay 388$ CAN shipped for mine at TF Source. Practically had to sell a kidney to get him.

    What's with the attitude? Devastator21 was merely advising the other poster that it's not easy to get cheaper than 200 dollars.

    That sucks. I will probably wait until a deal pops up. Was it worth the cost though??

    Thought I'd ask again if anyone else has or has had a loose bicep swivel on his cannon arm causing the arm to fall while the cannon is on.
    Mine does and i tried to dissasemble the arm to fix it but after removing the two screws holding the 2 halves of his shoulder together I was stopped by a pin. So I couldn't take it apart to even try and fix it.
    So has anyone else had any luck fixing this issue?

    I had this issue and I used the usual trick for loose joints: Pledge Floor Care Finish AKA Future. I applied it to the black barrel inside the arm that the arm slides on, letting it get into the joint. You can apply it without taking anything apart. One coat worked very well for me. Don't let it dry on the painted outside surfaces of the arm.

    So I got mine today probably between 4 and 5pm! Was so excited. Anyone have any issues getting the flight stand to stick in his ass? Seriously!! I've already caused a stress mark on the little peg trying to get it in his slotted hole. (haha) and it will NOT go in no matter how much pressure I put. (And no I didn't try lube, Haha) I almost thought I broke the figure about 5 times because I kept forcing the little peg and ended up knocking things around. I'm almost ready to contact BBTS and say hey.. something's not right here. I mean after watching many reviews and looking at the instructions, I don't think I'm doing anything wrong. It goes in the little spot, right below the screw hole, right? I swear my peg is too big and will NOT go in that hole. I'm either gonna have to sand it, which I don't wanna do and ruin the figure or contact BBTS and ask for some kind of help whether a replacement or something.. I dunno. Any suggestions/hints/help? Thanks everyone.
