    He’s really good, still a reasonable price, nice paint and no qc issues, one of the best recent Takara releases.

    That might also result in big shipping costs, I fear... :(

    I finally got an MP-19+, he arrived yesterday.

    For the record, I had originally pre-ordered him from surethingtoys.com but ended up cancelling after they had several delays. I decided to give them another chance since they have Smokescreen+ in stock now and I’m happy to say I had no problems with the order. It was processed and shipped normally and arrived packaged well. I just wanted to put this info out there for anyone reading this who experienced problems with their 19+ pre-order through Sure Thing Toys and ended up doubting their validity.

    Now, on to Smokescreen himself. While I’m still partial to the original version, I love the colors on this one and the faces are great. The smoke effect is very nice in-hand as well.

    G1 Smokescreen was my first carbot as a kid, so I’ll be keeping the original MP-19 in my collection and I’m glad to have Smokescreen joining my MP Cartoon bots.

    My copy does have a few problems though. Some paint flaking off in a few places upon transformation, some minor blemishes on a couple of the faces, and… well, his shoulder cannons are… drooping…

    I see from other posts in this thread that others have had these issues. I’ll try to fix the shoulder cannons with a hair dryer, but if that doesn’t work I might see if I can get an exchange.

    In any case, this is another MP+ figure I’m glad to have in my collection.

    So glad you finally got yours. Got mine from Surethingtoys a few months back. Smokescreen+ is gorgeous. I recommend dipping his droopy cannons in hot boiling water , IMO it’s gentler on plastic than a hair dryer’s air. If that doesn’t work, try Viagra.

    Resurrecting this thread because I just got this guy from Hasbro Pulse, and he has one of those product codes printed on the inside of his right leg. I haven't seen this code on any other copies of this toy I've seen in pictures online. It looks like the surface it's on isn't painted, so I should be safe to remove it. Did anyone else get a code on the leg? Anyone have any experience getting rid of it? Because it sure is an eyesore.

    Sorry, I misspoke. It’s on his RIGHT leg. Mine has the etched code on the left leg as well as this white printed code on the right leg.

    Yeah, that was covered about 4 pages back. I had wondered the same thing. To summarize, the ones from HasbroAsia have the stamp printed on the right inner leg. Simply use 90% alcohol and a cotton swab and it’ll come off.
