    While I agree with many that we should wait and see if this is an actual issue or just an isolated report, there is no need to jump down the throats of those posting the news link. They are just trying to share information with us that may be helpful to know.

    The next thing you know, there will be more reports of breakage with comments like "I didn't realize trying to defy the laws of physics would break this" or "So, if the articulation is so good, how come rotating the dinosaur head 360 degrees caused it to pop off?" This will prompt Takara to release a limited edition completely clear plastic "Unbreakable Edition". lol.

    We can't control what any of you think about other sites or even this very one you post on(hi), but let's be respectful.
    You forgot the obligatory 9 paragraph monologue essay about how this is all expensive while disregarding the company trying to make a profit, how greed is wrong, how this toy should come in a happy meal, how Walmart sucks, how scalpers suck, how distro sucks, how 1 breakage for one means catastrophic failure in a box waiting to happen for all, how inflation doesn't affect anything but fan rage, how the KO costs 900 times less with 2 million times the quality, how 1 guy reposted on 3 different sites and 5 different social media sites must be 8 different people and therefore 16 breakages and most of all, how after all of this, how you still bought this anyway.

    It's only been a few days everyone. This is what, the beginning of day 2 after official release or whatever? Still no MPM04 similarities or random broken steel tooling image leaked out of Asia alluding to a possibly broken mold.

    I can't blame people for being nervous or wanting to declare the sky is falling when the past several masterpieces have had...questionable QC, and that's even with discounting MPM, which seems to be where quality control goes to die.

    It could still be worse. :) 

    "We, at Takara, value our customers and and want you to be assured that we have heard your feedback and made improvements to significantly reduce the chance of breakage. Therefore, it is our pleasure to celebrate another period of Transformers history by introducing (drumroll, please) Masterpiece Action Masters! Now with elbow joints!"
