    It’s a random ask, but in the unlikely event anyone in the U.K. doesn’t want/need their instructions for whatever reason, PM me - mine happened to not include any.

    (Not a big deal really, because I just watched some videos, but just for completeness I’d like to have them in the box)

    So guys, who is winning this war? I've seen so many reports of QC issues in the Zeta thread, which made me believe MA is winning this war. How is it actually?

    I have both and so far I think MA has an edge because there have been no major issues, in my copy and others. However Zeta (mine hasnt broken) does feel more solid

    For more solid you mean like, it handles poses better and look less fragile?

    Oh and the transformation? I've seen people saying Zeta's worse?
    Damn, I just read the thread and Zeta fucked that design in a dumb way. And also, somehow the transformation is said to be worse. I guess it kills that figure to me

    Yeah, like the joints dont wiggle when you shake him, panles stay plugged, stuff like that (Zeta). MA has some parts that dont like to plug in all the way.

    And yeah, Zeta's transformation made me rage (not even split did that), but I think giving it more time and being more patient it could be easier to do.
    Also the Instructions included suck, so definitely watch emgo's video if you get him. (I transformed him before emgo's video went up so there weren't a lot of good transformation guides).

    But if you had to get just one now? What do you say that is better?

    Overall if the price difference doesn't matter id get Zeta, just be aware about those reportes issues, have parienve with the transformation, and you'll be fine :)

    The way that everyone's talking about zeta makes me want to believe that the wobbliness in this one is stopping it from breaking and giving everything a little more wiggle room as far as the transformation.

    @GaboCO316 when you said Zeta holds better, you wanted to mean MA definitely doesn't hold a piece in robot mode? Or just Prime vs Prime had this problem that bad?

    Sorry i didnt see this before.
    Bi it definitely can hold itself pretty well. It's just its a bit wobbly you know? Zeta is as well but not to that extent. Still it's not a deal breaker as PvP said it was IMO

    My copys mask have broken exactly the same way as primevsprimes, 1 peg holds well, but it is shame that the whole figure is wiggle woggle only the mask is so tight that need real force to take off.

    Hey guys, just got mine and I was wondering if there was a vid on how to put the battery in to his head. I took the two screws out but I’m not sure where exactly the battery goes. Any help is appreciated

    Yea, imagine... This was my first transformer, before I only assembled some gunplas but I had 0 problems with my toy. After 3rd transformation all the pegs were in place. This guys is just a moron (sorry, not sorry) if he states that this toy is a failure when HE clearly is.

    Anyone here have thoughts on the comparison between the MA Blitzwing & the Zeta one?

    I know Zeta has some breakage issues. How about this one?
    Anything else I should know about the comparison between the two?

    Some wobbly joints that have to be tightened, some leg panels don't really want to tab, may smell a little out of the box and feel a bit cheap but nothing compared to Zeta with some actual design flaws lol
