    Yea i emailed them last night when I got home and got it out. It's one of those things where your all excited you saved up your disposable income and then you get home and your like Wtf! What a bunch of bushwackers! It wouldn't be as big of a deal if it wasn't such a breakable figure. Noone wants someone's return

    They probably inspected it prior to shipping to ensure the crotch piece was not broken.
    After the mess with misassembled ramjets, I don’t blame them.

    Maybe, but they should have informed the customer first.

    Hi all,

    I have an opportunity to buy a MISB MP-43 for $280 total from a private seller. The seller said it was purchased as a pre-order from BBTS, so probably part of the 1st release batch.

    With that being said, due to reported assembly issues causing damage with this figure, would it be considered risky to purchase this figure outside of an authorized retailer since returns are a no-go? Did retailers such as BBTS and TFSource even replace units received with cracked plastic and/ or those that developed cracks after transformation?

    No more than buying anything with no returns policy really. The crotch issues were not widespread, indeed I think there were only a handful of reported cases online....the chances this one will be perfectly fine are pretty high. However if you are really worried you could hold off in hope of a reissue?

    Were their issues with the sound chip? I can't seem to get onto a different sound track, and when I hold down the button to do so, the transition/conformation noise is cut off compared to what it is in Emgo's video showing the full extent of the sounds.

    Little update here. I started to do a custom english version of the sound chip a while back, but a combination of laziness and life made me forget about it for a while. I was having trouble getting the built in speaker to pump out enough volume for the voice clips, so I added a low power amp to the circuit. Probably will be a while before I actually stuff it all inside (still gonna be lazy), but at least I'm getting somewhere I guess. Megatron likes Nappy Roots.
