    I just picked one down off the shelf and it seems the guns are small enough to fit inside the cavities in the lower legs for some sort of temp storage in robot mode at least.

    You're a braver man than I, I just know I'd forget I'd done that and end up accidentally cronching them during an impromptu re-posing.

    I keep telling myself not to do that, so far I'm winning, but it's only a matter of time before I crack :lol 

    That Magnus looks great. Hope they do Blurr and Arcee.

    Blurr is a massive hole in the Legends Plus line. All they have to do is upsize and improve the DX9 mold.

    I never actually use printed instructions. They are usually so bad. MFT figure are not th
    Not to mention Arcee. Though I hope they can do better than dx9 or at least really work on improving it.

    Yeah. DX9 Blurr has too much IDW influence. It needs less lines.

    The knees only move 90 degrees so it can't squish the guns.

    Got my last two toon color dinos today...

    What an immense dip in quality. Loose joints, mushy, waxy plastic. Ugh.

    i think something has happened futher up in the command chain. whenever they started on the quest to out G1 MS toys. i feel like someone thought they could slip in a cost cut on the plastic as well and still keep the same old coke a cola taste.

    but they have been wrong on all accounts. part of what made MFT amazing was their superior quality plastics.

    i think i might go in their weibo page and bring this up to see if they even realize that they have taken a step back as far as quality goes.

    Thank you! I was worrying I was being hyperbolic, or having flashbacks of similarly gray colored, junk ko products.

    The gray plastic on these last two (or maybe it's all 5 of them? I'll have to compare when I get back home) looks and feels like a lesser quality than the yellow or black plastics used on the same figure.

    No. It's more like a combined result of surface texture and material rigidity.

    Really?!?

    That sucks bud, the plastics on mine seem normal, and the joints were nice and tight...

    I still need to e-mail TF-Direct though about Grimlock's broken sword.
