    My knees are an issue, my ankles are actually pretty solid. Not like, rock solid, but the knees are definitely the issue. Although he's been fine for general playing and posing.

    I've ordered a bunch of things from ShowZ and packaging has been a mixed bag. I've received some packages that arrived immaculately, and others that have been crushed. The 4 or 5 boxes that arrived crushed only had damage to the toy boxes - the toys inside were ok.

    mhmm...thanks for the info man.
    I appreciate the boxes as art so I hope the mailman doesn’t heavy hand them.
    Got an extra Thundercracker on order so I could pick the best of them then sell the other.
    I’ll probably do this for all releases going forward.

    Is that the notch that pegs it in place? The one in the knee that is.

    When trying to backstab Megatron, those two frienemies are really scary when they get their act together! Decepticons FOREVER!

    Love this pic, but it makes me remember how disappointed I was when Megatron didn’t come with a huge blast effect. How awesome would that have been?!

    If TT did that buddy, another group will rant and whine about the added cost etc etc etc infinity. Or, seems like TT has dropped those goodies/freebies they used to offer for their Amazon JP releases. Remember Bumble had the battle mask, Lambor the pile divers and Soundwave the extra cubes? Greta times indeed.

    Any citadel painters, Administratum Grey mixed with a bit of Fenrisian Grey seems to get you very close

    It's close. MP44 also had Red as an option (which I used on Screamer) with a tweak involved. I think it mattered if you brushed or sprayed for that?

    It took me a few goes back and forth to figure out how everything fits and tabs together in both modes. His ankles are a little looser than I'd like, but he stands just fine.

    The robot mode is amazing. Dynamic, expressive, and really does look like it leaped off of the screen. I didn't really realize how many differences MP-11 had until I put them side-by side! 20210707_205613.jpg 20210707_195421.jpg

    Lots of character in this guy.

    Are the fingers’ colors off for anyone else? Like they’ve got a hint of yellow in them?

    The fingers are unpainted compared to the hands themselves, so the colour is slightly different.

    Is the knee thing a common issue? My copy's knees are crisp.
