    Definitely kicking myself for skipping this at $170 at AmazonJp in favor of Transform Element's black version(I wanted to experience the mold). While a cool transformation, the lack of some basic articulation is very unforgivable especially head to head with MP44..

    still waiting for mine to get shipped... starting to think I may have gotten scammed but we’ll see. Ebay so I’m protected.

    If this were as glossy as MP-44, I'd probably get it. I have two MP-10Bs and I prefer their aesthetic, if not the overall sculpt, to this.

    I am with you. It is such a strange choice for the nonpainted masterpiece. It maybe the only nonpainted masterpiece

    MP-24 Star Saber was almost entirely unpainted by design.

    Make sure the smokestacks are moved out of the way. They have two positions and in one of them they block the arms from collapsing on the inside.
