I can't stand watching BSF videos. His man-handling of his toys makes me cringe.
I think he's kind of representative of this board honestly, which is why he has a following on it.
It's too early to know if there is widespread qc and if the sky has fallen just yet. It literally just came out and it hasn't even been a week. Some of us(me) will thoroughly inspect this toy when we get it to point out what to watch out for. So far this really doesn't seem like a replication of the situation with MPM04/06.
As far as the KO justifications and whatever, let's keep those in the appropriate threads elsewhere, this thread should stay focused on MP 43 Megatron. KO coming? Make a thread or post in the 3P forum. Keep links of that the hell out of this thread.
Mine's shipped from nippon yassan. Can't wait
There's a first for everything!
I’ll be thoroughly inspecting mine when it comes and posting anything that I may even think is an issue. I’m sure I’ll be handling this figure for quite a while.
They roll around inside the eye socket. The iris is slightly recessed, so you can use that as a handle of sorts.
Sweet! You having it shipped by EMS?
Btw, there's only one S in yasan
This thing pops so much it's not even fair. Metallic paint goodness all over.
How’s the transformation?
So on the Amazon Japan delays...
A few friends got the delay message. One got it after his card was declined the first time. The other got it even though his went through.
Myself, and two other friends are still on the "shipping now" status.
I wonder if they didn't get enough initially and are fulfilling all domestic orders first.
As I ordered 3, one friend ordered 2, and another ordered one. I don't think quantity is an issue either.
He towers over Primal ! Is that even fair ?! Man he’s huge ! I love it .
Annnd just got my shipped notice ! Stoked.
My payment isnt going through for amazon japan.
My paypal mastercard wont work :/.
So i might have to wait a while longer to have him
Anyone with experience if you can please chime in and tell me how you purchase off amazon japan.
BSF did his first mp36 transformation in front of camera. No stress mark and no obvious paint chip
Agreed. Better modern toy engineering and articulation aside, I do miss the fact that you had to work hard (gold plastic syndrome, brittle clear plastic, and random QC issues aside) to break the old G1 and G2 toys. Heck, even a number of the pre-Transmetal Beast Wars toys. We were able to quickly transform them, they could handle some rough play from those that did so, etc. Some people fail to keep in mind that a Masterpiece figure (not even the cassettes) can be handled or quickly transformed in the same manner. It's one thing to want to try to figure out the transformation without the instructions or following a video, but the current toys have nowhere near the same tolerances and margins for error. So, as a number of you have said, people need to not worry about the sky falling immediately after seeing any postings or mentions of breakage. Yes, it's more painful the more expensive or harder to obtain the item is, but sometimes it really is the user's own fault. Not always from rough or quick use, but one wrong turn or twist can be enough in some cases. That being said, I'm looking confidently forward to receiving my Beast Megatron next week. If it takes patience to transform, so be it. If i find a tighter than normal section, I won't try to force it.
Not everyone who collects Transformers is on these or other forums, but it's a good bet that those in the fandom who know about the Masterpiece line are more discriminating or diehard fans than the average adult shopper walking a store aisle trying to find toys for their kid. Those are made to be more durable because they have to be. At least we have the tools and fandom to get as much knowledge about what potential issues to look out for as we can.
So I had this issue back when MP Dinobot went up .
But needless to say, the PayPal MasterCard fell flat during the 1¢ charge. So, I switched to my bank card. They wanted all kinds of crazy stuff to reinstate my account too. Like bills paid with that card (and I don't pay bills with it lol) so I had to make a new account, too .
What do you recommend for me to purchase him? I have read people using gift cards on amazon japan?
That worked for me back when MP-36 was released. I had forgotten to let my bank know I was expecting a large foreign charge and they justifiably blocked it. I used a different account (informing the bank ahead of time) to buy an Amazon.jp gift card/balance and used that to pay down my purchase.
Look at Xaxis's reply to my inquiry for clarification on how to apply funds directly to the purchase. (I'll link it later but am on the go and can't be fussed to dig at the moment.)
Chose EMS for mine from them. Looking forward to arrival next week!
Looks better than I could have imagined, I can't even begin to imagine how he will look like in hand.
Also congratulations on your shipment, mine went through too. I wonder why other people are having trouble with there's? Hopefully everyone's gets resolved in time.
Okay, so I just came over from Seibertron.com and apparently someone in Hong Kong's reporting possible breakage issues with this guy.
