Hahaha I used a lego separator to wedge the pieces apart when I first transformed him.
You gotta do what you gotta do, lol.
What I was saying that after that first hump, you need nowhere near that level of force. Not scary at all after the first go.
Humm..well my personal experience is to the contrary, therefore we can only conclude that I am either lying or your experience is not definitive and should maybe be qualified with the standard 'YMMV'.
I mean, that's the general consensus with the figure. But if yours is different, you do you.
ok.... not convinced it is though. The general consensus seems to be it loosens up over time (like I originally said). From what i've read here (and experienced first hand) the actual level of looseness seems to be on a scale from "not scary at all" to "still pretty scary but not as bad". One size does not fit all. It's a pedantic point to make but you did pull me up on it
Like @Booster Gold said, it probably varies from copy to copy.
My figure was a bit tight the first time around, but I didn't have any real trouble transforming him. The joint has been smooth ever since.
Why do we not have this IRL yet?
Remembering this figure exists makes me want to go and pick it up again.
These BW MPs never get old. I never get the feeling of "that's it?" I can go back and pick up any one of them and just be thrilled with what's in my hand.
...probably because $320 figures are a hard sell...
...and that deco was never released in Japan as far as i'm aware. Essentially the same reason why we don't have a Grimlock redeco of Dinobot either.
I usually don't spring for repaints of molds I already own, but I'd buy that sweet white grimlock repaint of dinobot on frame one
I got them the other day and for my first beast wars mp I'm left speechless in the best way possible
has any company made a mutant mask? Does a 3D model exist?

Hi there! I was wondering if you guys can help me with any tip on a better way to open and close the right and left back panels or "wings" of MP-43? The "wings" lock to tight which makes it hard to open when going from beast to robot, and a living hell to put it together, at least on my figure.
-Beast to robot: I realease dino head from the body like the isntructions show, then I try to open "wings" by pulling in opposite directions. Is there a better way? I saw a video of guy that simply push the spine of the dino down towards the body, is it better?
-Robot to beast: To me this is the worst part, I've found no other way to do it other then, once each side is fully formed into "wing", I just press them together. Can you guys help me?
Did you check out Wotafa’s video on YouTube? He usually has very good transformation instructions and so does Emgo. I believe pressing on the spine as you said works best to separate them but have a look at those videos.
Yes I did check them, and both of them open the "wings" by pulling to the side, not by pressing down the spine. And wotafa has a transformation video from robot to beast, and it looks super easy to close the "wings". But on mine it is nothing like that
So, I enquired about that add on back kit for Megatron at TF Safari and they said they just got a batch in and will be sending them out now. Not even sure mine would be coming if I didn’t specifically ask for it and then reconfirm my address so if anyone else PO’d then go get in touch. Doesn’t look like anymore will be made.
Here’s some pics they sent.
Yeah, really, dreadfully lacklustre and lazy paint apps- genuinely embarrassing and probably the least necessary kit ever but I’ll repaint it and see how I like it then or just display it hanging on the stand with the missile.
