    As much as I despise the clip system of MP44's axe and hands...I gotta say this is extremely badass!!

    Considering picking up the Nemisis KO. It looks like the non-Prime colored ones don't come with the Starscream head? Which is the only accessory I care about. Can anyone confirm whether or not the black version comes with the head?

    i ordered this nemesis yesterday.

    i kind of surfed through this thread seeing broken bits here and there. So i dont have to go through 408 pages, can someone please break down what areas are of concern and what i should look out for when handling.

    i doubt i ever transform it, just wanted a MP sized nemesis.. sold my mp 10b years ago and wanted another but couldnt pass on this price vs a legit mp 10b... also have 1st release magic square prime and like that mold but wanted nemesis to look slighty different.. but if this is arse ill get a ms-02b dark lord eventually

    Check out the first post, page 1, you can view the pdf that has a list of problems and fixes over the different versions. The biggest thing for me has been the hip ratchets, no matter the version, everyone I've messed with has either mushed the plastic, started to, or showing signs of the screw coming loose causing excessive play which leads to the plastic stripping. The other for me that was annoying, the tabs that hold the inner panels of the lower legs not molded quite right so they always feel like they tab with some tension, then because of the softer plastic they either pop out on there own or take the slightest touch to do so. I shaved some plastic from the tabs and slots to give a better fit so things stay where you put them.

    the photo doesnt do them justice..not the greatest camera or lighting... def look better in person together.. however, happy i finally replaced the mp 10b i sold a couple of years ago with a new paperweight

    havent really messed with mp 44 ko but just in hand and out of box it feels okay.. one thing i noticed is that the gun doesn't want to stay in his hand without using his fingers to hold it in place. the tab is smaller than the hand slots on both hands. i did add a lil blue tack to the tab so its a non issue for me.

    also it didnt come with instructions so im gonna have to find transformation vid. im not sure if its bad transformation or just the figure but the knee pads dont seem centred seems to have more gap on a particular side..doesnt matter but i wonder if transforming it i can get them more centered.

    So I had the V2 awhile back, but ended up selling it. I see the V3 had lost the huge-ass backpack and looks much better for it. How'd the quality on the V3? Any mold degradation or other issues with it?

    So far, my V3 is pretty solid! Feels way less like it's about to break at any moment like my V1 did. Still can't hold his gun properly...

    Anyone figure out how to open the blast effects to change the batteries? I’ve got a V2 and I don’t want to break them.
