    I got a preowned reissue version recently.

    Only noticable difference is they improved the shoulder ratchet. Everything else is the same. Transformation is just as smooth.

    That is good to see, no one had managed to properly confirm this had been done. Thanks.

    It also looks like a deodorant commercial ;)

    Where is the best place to get this guy (fixed reissue) from these days?

    I did put in a $10 preorder + shipping for IT-02 from Oh My Primus, but I ended up not wanting it.

    Should I stick with OMP or is there a better place to get him? (Shipping to Canada)

    Does that mean that the shoulder joint no longer loosen like the first version?

    Pretty sure TT will reissue this next year. They reissued Cheetor, etc after 2 years.

    Is the gold ratchet piece slightly bigger and more durable? I got Dinobot from tfsource after the reissue as I just learned about Masterpiece figures. Mine kinda looks like the one on the left

    Compare the guiding tab to the teeth of the ratchet itself. If the tab is roughly as wide as two teeth, you got the "fixed" version.

    Ok, I will have to get a reissue then! Is there any clue to know the difference between them?! I don't want to buy from the original first run.

    The reissue has 35th anniversary sticker on his box.
