    The white one looks nicer than I anticipated it would I bought the grey wing version - which is "fine" but I think I might get that Black and White one too - and surprisingly not just for the Shuttle mode - perhaps because it reminds me of the Gobot Spacey I guess & also has that bonus Diaclone vibe that will kinda complement MFT's Lunar themed not-quite-Diaclone stuff they also do.

    But how do I make sure I get the proper heads - if some people have missing ones ?

    nobody is missing heads. MS-18 is the ONLY release that has the alt "toy" version heads. the other two MS-20 releases only come with one "toon" head.

    guessing you may have missed this… ;)

    Haha oh man,, I warned you at the time, the deal was the best you would get. I been wondering because for days and days you were going off about how baba charged $5 shipping after making it $25 total and that all MFT toys drop in value after release. I couldn't figure out why you cancelled it,, I kept telling you it wouldn't drop on price.. You had a chance to get him $25 shipped.. but even $30 is not bad compared to MS and NA and the figure is awesome so pull the trigger already!!!

    No no, in my case Baba asked me for 10€ shipping... It was absurd on that time. Anyway now is still cheaper than when I pre-ordered, but I want him for 25$ hahaha not 30$.

    I do own that too - that was on my mind too with that MFT white & black colour scheme.

    I don't think they made a specific head based on that one though - as one of the options (which might have been a nice idea perhaps)

    Is MFT going original and using better plastic now? :) 

    For cheap, it's JinBao now.

    @Enton,

    I'm not sure :p  Video reviewing feels so exhausting lately. I don't think my heart's in it anymore. But I do have thoughts on the figure. First and foremost of which is a question: How do you guys flip up the Space Shuttle's vertical stabilizer? Mine's so tight that I have to--like a true barbarian--prise it loose with my teeth :eek:

    with my coke fingernail LOL get a spudger, seriously. works wonder with toys. got mine from Shopee and has helped me pry off glued plastics on my kits and push out tight parts loose. while you're at it, get a bottle of RC shock oil to loosen tight joints. has worked wonders for me, usually with my MFTs. get yours from Shopee as well.

    Love your poses and moon diorama @JeremyGui ! This guy exceeded my expectations I have to say. NA or MS will have to really give it their all to dislodge this fella from anyone's display

    What is that extra black (or purple, on regular Astrotrain) bit he comes with meant to do?

    I was gonna ask that earlier, then figured it’s maybe to attach him to a flight stand?

    what I love about this Astrotrain is how fun it is to fiddle with him. transformation is very intuitive (even close to the OG G1 toy if my observation is right). way i see it, sure NA and MS might be able to knock this one out of the ballpark in the looks department, should they tackle Astrotrain, but given how they overengineer and add ridiculous amounts of folding, tucking and transforming, that might take away all the fun of owning an NA or MS Astrotrain. then again I'm pretty sure I'd be inline to buy an NA or MS Astrotrain.

    for a flight stand indeed
