    I guess it's thrice as hard as I had planned for 17+ and 18+ to be shipped with 19+ once it was available.

    Really looking forward to this since we’re in a Long dry stretch and I don’t see much on the horizon. Plus , it’s my 1st order with SureThingToys, I like supporting the smaller stores if I can.

    Mine finally arrived, but not had a chance to transform it yet. Mine has the same sort of gap between the hood and windshield as MP-18+ (which wasn't an issue with any of the original Nissans). Other than that, it looks good. Probably the best painted MP I've had in a long time.

    Took a quick pic before he went into the display cabinet. He's pretty sweet. That face sculpt has bags of personality.

    Sh*tty day. Not serious, but just one of those days that you'd prefer to spend
    But this was one positive!

    Got mine and just a warning, more paint flakes. I don't know where some of it came from because I saw both blue and red but I did find on on the center hood piece that runs out from the windshield, once I bent that down into the roof (interior of the car), it pulled a chuck off there at the bend that sticks out.

    I also have the nice gap as well between the windshield and the hood. Maybe 2.0 Smokescreen should've been done and not a "+"?

    I had the same problem plus a broken door. Got a replacement for the top half only and it's better. I now own 1.5 MP19+. I used the front half in my MP44 trailer scene. Looks likes hes coming out after roller.

    Yeah, I commented on both of those issues in my YT unboxing. The paint on the hinge of the hood flaked when I transformed it. Not a huge amount, but noticeable when you view him top down. Thankfully it's not readily apparent from most angles though.

    The gap was also an issue with MP-18+. From memory MP-19+ isn't quite as bad, but it's odd/annoying as MP-17+ was fine, as were the original releases of all three. It could have done with a proper V2 as the proportions are still off, but it's better on the whole (if you're a toon/Marvel fan).

    Is something going on with hasbro pulse? Went to the site and it says shipping may be delayed but with no further info. They took payment on the 24th and have received no info other than that.

    Probably the same that happened with all of us with the Seacons. There is a delay. If you don't see an email in the next week, I would call them. I've been notified, both the delay and when they'll be shipped.

    Yep on the paint. Same exact deal. The gap part I saw your post here and just mentioning it, in case anyone thinks its a one off or needed another confirmation. I thought at first the gap was from the new shoulder guns but I didn't find that to be the case. Just odd that gap is there.

    Otherwise, he looks great.

    Ok so it’s related to it not being a “hasbro” product but a “Takara Tomy” product. I’ve never ordered “outside US” items from pulse before this. Thanks for the response and advice.

    They share products now so their is no difference like before, except price, which remains unchanged. So don't focus on too much by company. Its more of a manufacturing issue across the board. Most TF products come from China or Vietnam, which has been severely disrupted for the obvious reasons.

    If you ordered Gen. Seacons or any MP figures, whatever pre-order date they had pre-virus is going to be late and Hasbro Pulse will email you with updates. My two Seacons due in February are supposed to be in process of being shipped to me. Like I said, if for some reason you don't see an email update, call or email them.

    Yeah that makes sense. I only made the distinction as in not US retail typically. Like wfc or ss. Thanks for the info though. I figured covid was the issue but as I didn’t receive that email that you said you had received, I was just curious.

    Just got a shipment notification from FedEx for something from Hasbro Pulse. Only things I have on order is this and Lio Convoy so pretty sure it's Smokescreen!
