I'm not sure it's all Takara's fault. Their pictures showed him transformed correctly at the correct height. It's ppl rushing to get reviews out missing steps and then ppl screaming the sky is falling without rationally waiting for a wider spectrum of views or even, shock horror, seeing what it's like in hand. It shouldn't be of any surprise though. This is just following the normal stages of a new MP release. Thankfully we should be spared the knee jerk reactions with Ratchet. Well. Hopefully.
