    Hey, does anybody have the Alternative version? Do the heels make it any harder for her to stand?

    I don't have any issues balancing her upright in many different poses. They are surprisingly a non-issues, probably due to the proper use of diecast in areas that actually help keep the figure grounded and stable

    Plus it’s really cool how the bottom of the high heel on the Ox repaint forms a little booster detail on the back of the alt mode that doesn’t exist on the normal version of the mold.

    Wow, I actually love the look of MP-51’s head on Azalea’s body

    Doesn’t fit. MP51 has a large socket. Azalea’s ball is about 1/3 too small. You’re gonna have to use some folded toilet paper or build up the ball with wax or glue to make it fit.

    Hello, I have the Original Azalea transformed once into robot mode. All complete with no damage and has been in robot mode on display in a sealed cabinet (dust free) since day 1. Let me know if you are interested.

    After a bunch of delays from Canada Post I finally got my hands on Azalea. Love her so far, although messing with her she both feels really sturdy and like she could break if handled wrong.

    Not sure if you care to fix it, but I was able to repair mine using o-rings from home depot. I think it was a size 8 or 10..... bring the other tire to compare. Not just a tip for you, but anyone else who needs a tire replaced

    Has anyone else had trouble getting Azaeleas chest tabbed in? Mine just falls down no matter what I do!

    Edit: nvm. I wasn't pushing hard enough.

    Also, I believe that "going up one size" from the originals, works just as well, but doesn't stress/stretch them as much, so they'll last much longer than the originals.

    Thanks David!
    I don't think I can replace the front wheels, at least not without potentially damaging it.
    There's one screw in those front fender pieces but removing it doesn't let it come apart, so those wheels are trapped on the axle without anyway for me to get tires around them.
    :( 

    Hoping MMC come through with some sort of solution or replacement but given the limitedness of this release, I'm not feeling too optimistic about it.

    I'll report back what happens as this could benefit others who own stealth and normal azaleas.

    So MMC got back to me.
    They advised I can open it by applying some force after already removing the screw. The left area closer to the headlight is the screw connection, and the further back connection on the right is the one you have to crack.

    It does require breaking it open so to speak, but the screw holds it together fine so no biggie with reassembly. Just be careful if you need to do this to gradually apply pressure till the other connection breaks. Looks like a peg in a peg hole that is glued after.

    Now, to find the kind of tires at home depot. Glad I can sort this out myself at least.

    Forgot to mention, they stated they had no replacement parts for Stealth Azalea... take care of yours as it might be the last to ever exist lol.

    I can’t find the post but I saved the Amazon link that someone posted here saying these were the correct size to replace the tires for it.

    Saw Daimchoc post this on FB earlier:

    Don't know if it's a con exclusive, or a custom, or whatever, but I kind of like it. I think G1 Arcee is fairly boring, but this deco works for me.

    I'd buy that in a heartbeat. Hope it's real.
