    What was the main reason of your return? Paint issues?

    I have no words to tell how fantastic he is. I love him!

    paint issues, a broken starsream intake, damaged Season 1 head, damaged autobot logo out of box, box is mutilated and dragged to hell and back. He is fantastic, and I blame all these problems on Cincinnati customs. I just want a return anyways, because I'm a dumb perfectionist :p

    Since MP-22 Ultra Magnus' cab was molded after MP-10, does anybody think a new cab section is needed now that MP-44 exists? I love my MP-22 and don't plan to replace him, but would there be enough demand for just a new cab section that more closely resembles MP-44? They could incorporate improvements such as a panel that folds up rather than hangs over his butt, and maybe make the two cross-compatible with each other's trailer. I'm sure there are other improvements they could make as well, maybe even add lights and sounds, and they wouldn't have to re-create the whole figure. I know I'd buy one.

    No, it isn't missing the ratchet, it's definitely there. Just a lot of play in the front/back movement of it. Maybe I'll take a peek inside, and see what's going on.

    Yes, mine has the looseness as well. Looking at it from the bottom up, the thin white pieces have a lot of play in them. When doing a wide-legged stance, he dips a little due to his own weight.

    I posted a question on the Knee fix thread to see if anyone has come up with a solution to tighten that joint.

    Mine just got delivered!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    i will have time to open it later. Box is minty fresh, but double-taped. It was still inside the Amazon shrink wrap, so it was not opened in its journey to get here.

    Quick question...

    The knee issue that people have had. Was this out of the box or is it something they’re doing that’s causing it to break?

    People mention videos on how you should bend the knees but I can't find them sorry. I saw Wotafa's and I don't understand what the trick is really. In the video he just normally bends it.

    There's a little tab thing that HAS to sit inside a little channel on the back of the first knee bend.

    Mine is exactly like this. Makes me feel alot better because if theyre all like this then its most likely supposed to be this way. That small white plastic hip joint sketches me out but oh well.

    I notice there's a pin in the toe making me think it's SUPPOSED to move, similar to MP10's, but I don't want to try to force it... DOES it move, or is it just there for the transformation of the taillights?

    He's awesome.....but the giant shadow of the knee joints puts a cloud over him. Just like MP-36 where they found a new way to transform Megatron, they pretty much did the same with Prime. The leg transformation is its own piece of magic and the arm transformation is pretty slick.
