    My IT-01 v2.0 is starting to slightly yellow... or it's my eyes?? I don't know. Gonna send pics here later today as I don't have a camera by the time of this post. I have it for about 2 years. My KO MP36 is the one with the gunmetal grey paint and the ankle ratchet on the right leg.

    Does anyone still carry the Magten Destruction of the Great?

    magten's been out of production for 5+ years. You'd have to find a little store w/ no online presence & a dusty box in the backroom

    I have the THF reissue from couple years ago. The forward/backward arrows on the chest and circles/square on the stomach were simplified to paint and are not separate translucent inserts like mp36 and initial THF.

    I couldn't get back of gun mode on mine to stay tight but maybe I missed something in transformation.

    One of the ankles on my THF had no ratchet. Took it apart and found out the spring was missing. Put in a spring from a pen but it's not as strong as other ankle.

    Anyone know where to get stronger replacement spring for ratchet joints?

    Any hardware store.

    Edit: Disassemble the other side and take that spring with you to match size and tension as closely as possible.

    You could stretch the spring a bit so it has more tension. I've done this a bunch of times, it works well.

    Not that I've seen. He was not easy to find when he was released. I have heard that he was a possible factory test shot with the varied deco. He's awesome, I have mine displayed and put the official back in his box

    Magten is the prettiest of the 36 KOs, it's true. I still want a + KO though.

    Not at all. It's the 36 KO with a more accurate gunmetal paint app and original toy-accurate color inside the legs and some other areas that the + has. It's the perfect mix.

    Since he posted a picture of Magten in his collection earlier, I'm guessing he meant the 36+

    So, to clarify, the 36+ looks odd to me, and I have Magten displayed and the official mp36 is stored in his box.

    Magten is the best balance in appearance.

    My only fault found was a paint chip when I transformed mine.

    Hey guys, I'm selling some spare THF-03 Dynastron parts.
    $5 each for the small parts such as faces & chestplates.
    $10 for each leg & $10 for the body. I can also remove parts if you need a specific piece, which would be $5 if it's not too large.
    The kicker? I'm from the UK so tracked international shipping will average around $15-20. If you're domestic I'll sort out a better price for you.

    EDIT: TOY CHEST & TOY FACE TAKEN
