    Wait, you remember to push the waist back before attatching the legs to the pegs right? :0, that'll fix the bent rectangle!

    I'm considering getting the Weijang one as the IT01 might not ever happen.

    [Incoming] WeiJiang WJ MPP36 NE-01 Megatron Oversized

    It seems questionable calling it MPP36 as it isn't a simple oversize of MP36 the way MPP10 was of MP10, but instead an original transformation. But I need some kind of megs at some point. Been waiting over a year already...

    Does anyone that has this guy know how good he is?

    I didn't say it was cheap. But the options are that or nothing, the choice is yours.

    I'd personally hit up robotoybase for the mp36+ before I came that close for the ko. But that's just me.

    Oh yeah if someone wants the +. But if you're thinking that, I'd warn you that it's cheaper from Steves store on ebay and it got to Texas in about 4 days.

    Fortunately I have my MIB Dynastron (now only $153.99!!! By Grabthar's hammer what a savings!) & can patiently wait for the paid off IT pre-order.

    Ended up scoring a secondhand Magten MP Megatron today. Not exactly my first choice of brand but I can't find a decently priced THF or IT-01 for months, (and if I do they're being sold by resellers who price that thing to almost actual MP 36 Takara prices).

    He looks great, to be honest. The only reason why I wanted the THF more was that the voice clips on that thing were the best out of all the MP36 KOs I've seen so far.

    The guy who sold it to me said he only transformed it once, to gun and then back, and then put it back in the box.

    Few seconds out of the box it seemed fine, until I noticed the hip joints are loose as heck. (The hip joint going to the side, the front ratchet joints seem fine.) I can't put him in a decent spread out pose because he'll just do the splits. I can probably fix that!

    Some paint chips around but I can live with those, the faceplates do have some minor scuffs. But then again I already ordered a separate head set that has LEDs to fit my needs so no biggie.

    I guess my only other complaint is that he feels "greasy". I'm probably gonna give him a few rounds of wiping with a wet soapy cloth first.

    Not planning to transform him for the meantime.

    Still glad I got him though, been itching to have an MP 36 for a looooooong time and this guy already satisfies me just standing there.

    I would really like to try this, which parts did you cover up to not expose it to the light. Was your baking soda peroxide like a paste so it only touched those parts? Also what concentration of peroxide did you use. I really want to try this to fix mine, since he is perfect otherwise.
