    Advantage of my situation where he's arriving tomorrow but I'm away on business. By the time I'm back we'll have a general consensus on if one person broke theirs by being heavy handed or if widespread. I'm leaning heavily towards the former but by the time I can handle mine I'll know of all the pitfalls.

    Hey, I'm trying to find a silver lining here, lol.

    Ok Megs arrived today, what a great figure, really love the paint and overall feel. I keep sayin' that all the time but I truly think the Masterpiece "crown" of this line now belongs to the Beast Wars characters, you can see the amount of love, dedication and attention to every detail they put at each figure released. So from Japan to Portugal in 2 days? That must be a record!!! Amazon Japan I freaking love yaaaaa.

    I preordered mine from TFSource early last month and I have yet to get a notice telling me they have the orders ready to ship. I hope they start doing that soon.

    I'm really looking forward to getting this guy and sorry for the Noob question but was it ever revealed as to why Megatron was purple? I mean in reality, was it just that purple tested well with the kids or something? Just interested in the background.

    Well, it so happens there ARE David Kaye voice chips out there... don't know how big they are though, given they're wired in to a button. Yesss.

    He sells them at conventions.

    i hope you're right! the fear of breakage kept me away from Dinobot, though i now regret it quite a bit. but the notion of a $200+ toy breaking within the first few months is too much for me to ignore!

    meanwhile, my anticipation of ole Purple Puss grows and grows and grows ...

    The Dinobot concerns ARE understandable, given it quickly turned out to be a design issue.

    I'm curious if the reissue will tweak the tolerances.

    Well to bring the joke of Split Lip arguing with himself back into relevance to the thread we could quote Blackarachnia and Megatron's humorous exchange.
    BA: Why are you always talking to yourself?
    Megatron: I simply have an appetite for intelligent conversation.
    I'm pretty sure that scene's from The Low Road right?

    My Nippon-Yasan order arrived in NYC today. Shouldn't be long before it finishes any customs processing before hitting my doorstep on the other side of the city :)
