Yeah It's totally hypocritical to expect a high end finish on a premium figure and then when you get that to expect it not to come off during very carful use.
Like I said before there is a balance to be had, MP29 skewed one way, MP36 the other. IMO It's totally valid to criticise both without being called a hypocrite.
Was paint coming of Megatron in places that were rubbing against other parts? I haven't encountered any paint rubbing off issues on pre-megatron MPs...
The problem (IMO) with MP-36 is paint was applied (in some cases unnecessarily) where parts rubbed together during transformation/normal use...now this might have been ok if it were properly protected or durable but instead the finish was very delicate. So say you wanted to put the long barrel on in gun mode, expect to scratch the paint on the needlessly painted gun barrel. Add to that he has a very complex transformation with lots of moving parts with little clearance and you have a recipe for a nail-biting time. Again that is my opinion, milage does appear to vary.
I'm hoping MP43 is not in the next Figure King. Because I am currently in no hurry to get the preorders because I'm on a budget right now.
Battle-damaged Megs, problem solved! (plus, they’ve already included swappable parts to help u out ...)
Takara really does those laughter faces very well! His dino mode is a bit more panel break up than I'd like, but they do fold up nicely in robot mode so I can live with it. Now.....hopefully the price isn't too bad.
Damn he looks fucking good. Great facial expressions. That Yessss face is perfect.
Re: New pics
He's looking fantastic!! Doesn't seem like we'll have to wait 2+ years like with Dinobot.
NOW, PLEASE don't rape my wallet, Takara-Tomy.
Ooo, he's got some tricks up his sleeve. Screw holes on the outside of his legs in dino-mode, but on the inside in bot-mode.
Wow, is even taller than Dinobot

Looks like his beast mode hides the bot stuff better. Not bad.

THAT T-REX IT'S EXCELLENT!.
Seems that the tail is removable and a hand is under it
The tail is indeed removable and IT'S GONNA HAVE A SPEAKER FOR VOICE CLIPS!? (Unfortunately, most likely the Japanese dub voice...)
Iacon took the pics from my buddy. He took the actual pics in a magazine store this morning. But I guess I shouldn’t post his real name here haha
Anyways. Glad lots of people are getting the news quick!!
Perfect beast mode and face options, not to mention this is like the first time we get to see Primal, Megatron and Dinobot stood upright next to each other!
Well, I don't suppose people are going to take well to the sound gimmick driving up, er... justifying the price.
