    Yup, the simple sciene is to wait until we see hands on proof that the figure can actually stand on it’s own. A static picture is not proof of that. But believe what you will

    This NEEDS to happen.

    And make a MP Universe Primal repaint while you're at it.

    And yet, you won't shut up about it. Keep shouting your disappointment in Dinobot from the rooftops, nobody cares.

    Hate to say it, but with the ratchet problems and paint chipping of Dinobot, their QC has me officially worried, now. It’s just not the same as they used to be.

    This. I won’t say anymore because people obviously want to believe what they want to believe despite evidence suggesting otherwise.

    I still buy their products. So it’s not like I’m anti Takara. It’s just true their QC sucks. Encore God Fire Convoy, Paint chipping on the face of MP40, now Dinobot problems. Here’s hoping Megatron won’t be the same. Yea not all figures suffered and I hope their situation improves. But these guys have free fallen. I’m still keeping my two orders of Beast Wars Megatron no matter what.

    The low quality of Takara is what stop me from preorder this Megatron.

    Is anybody really surprise of Dinobot issues? We are talking of Takara here and their cheap hollow plastic syndrome.

    I’m actually very surprised for this price point of a masterpiece. Accessories aside, I thought things would get better. I’ll just keep ordering from Amazon JP from now on due to their excellent exchange program. Kind of an insurance policy.

    You mean issue? Because it's just the shoulder joints. (sometimes) Everything else about the figure is spectacular.

    No matter how many times you say it, "hollow plastic syndrome" is not a thing. The plastic itself is not hollow, the pieces are, but they have to be because you can't mould something in solid plastic without it warping as it cools. All TFs, even MP-01, had hollow parts. Because that's how toys work.

    These canned, regurgitated mantras against TT don't even make sense anymore. They're just generic.

    Can’t agree there.

    Fans Toys Dinobots, MP22 Ultra Magnus, MP10 Figure and trailer, And MP29 Shockwave all have durable materials that can take rough handling. These figures have proven that they can make durable materials as long as you don’t smash them with a hammer

    POTP Predaking also has sturdy plastic and can take abuse. He’s definitely my Predaking

    Depending on what the exchange rate is when you pay for it, you might get better/worse pricing in USD.

    Factories are moving from China to Vietnam due to stupid US tariffs. Good chance the QC will go up
