    I decided to sell my original PS-01 recently as I've gone full toon. I do like the original, but I don't need two copies of this mould and there are other figures I want to fund. The original deco is nice though.

    Picked up a MIB PS-01 (original, not A) on eBay. What issues should I expect out of the box? Something about the front end/wheels not being just right/drooping?

    Depends on the individual figure. It's a problem on every version of the mould to some extent, but my original version wasn't too bad.

    I am considering trading my PS - 01A Sphinx for a cartoon accurate version of that mode. If anyone is intrested drop me a PM. He comes complete with box and everything else he originally came with. He does have some reprolabels on him, but they can be removed.

    I figured I post this here also since it’s related. I did a 3D printed “invisible box” for Mirage. I don’t have Sphinx anymore so I used Sunstreaker as my stand-in :)

    Looks kind of interesting, especially if you’ve got the special edition version that’s partly phased. Wonder how good it would look with a few panes of thin glass to give it that slight sheen when the light hits it...

    Can a member or two tell me if the sagging front axle(s) from the first edition were ever fully fixed on the later releases?

    They work perfectly on my Toon and Pharaoh versions, which are 2/3 newest reissues/colors of the mold.
