Any backpack "upgrades" on MP-43 would increase the size of it, and therefore be even less accurate.
Well I mean you can remove the current backpack/hipgun pieces. I'm not asking for new parts that get slapped on over the current parts - I want new parts that replace the current ones.
Daaaamn this looks incredible. It even has the mutant mask.
Oops its just a CG render
Lol I totally forgot you can easily deattach the shell on Megatron, even though its just sitting right on my desk.
Hello, I recently picked up MP-43. Out of the box, the left peg on the black piece of his chest wasn't inserted into the hole. I tried pushing down so that the peg can insert into the hole but it won't budge.
Any solution to this? Or should I try to request an exchange? (FYI the neutral face has a dent on his left cheek and the angry face has a spot of black paint on his left cheek). Thanks for any help!
The hell is up with the glove?
Maybe as a precaution due to COVID-19?
Probably to protect his figure.
Yes, I'm paranoid about damaging the paint job lol
Anyone know how to fix my issue?
I know I wish I wore gloves when handling my Soul of Chogokin Megazord. Now I can see the chrome has fingerprints when I place it in direct light.
Can you take a picture of the peg?
He doesn't want to get the toy pregnant.
I have three suggestions:
1. Carefully disassemble as much of the torso as you can to see if that black piece is glued on or screwed on. Mine is packed away otherwise I'd try it myself. Could be as simple as removing the black piece entirely and reinserting it properly before screwing it.
2. This isn't ideal, but if the piece is glued/not removable, maybe getting an exacto knife or hobby cutters to trim the peg away and using a micro-drop of superglue to hold the black piece down without it. Obviously cutting and gluing a toy this expensive is shitty, but if worse comes to worse it looks like a simple fix.
3. Looking at the pic are you sure the peg is properly lined up with the hole? It looks off, like the peg is too high. Maybe take a toothpick and try to gently push the peg into place that way? It looks like I can see the hole its meant for under the peg but it may be the lighting.
Ohhhhh, I think i see waht you're talking about.
That isn't a peg. It's a... bar? Point is, the shoulders can slide forwards or backwards as part of transformation. Push the ARM forward.
Edit: Ignore me. I just took a look at mine. I am wrong. That looks like a quality control issue.
that black peg isnt in the hole. looks like its just next to it. pushing doesnt work? maybe they put glue on it and the peg is glued thats why it isnt moving...
Thanks for the tips!
Your third point is correct, the peg is not lined up with the hole. I previously tried pushing down on the black piece with my hands so it would line up, but it didn't budge.
I was afraid of dissembling it, so I ended up pushing the peg with a flathead screwdriver and managed to get it mostly in. It still sticks out a small gap though.
Contemplating buying a new figure lol. It's really bothering me
Just a sudden thought: This thing could have gotten an easy repaint to T-Wrecks (with a new head probably). I'm surprised that they haven't done it.
