    Yeah, this time they don't fooled around for real!

    Edit: Amazing figure, @Otengu84 what was the other mistransformation parts outside the side wheels?

    The only defect is a scuffed part on the chromed gun, like a sprue mark (not a sprue mark). Nothing that a chrome pen couldn't resolve, but whatever.

    Went for the cheapo shipping option from AE. I reckon I can wait another couple of weeks at this point.

    Just for reference, he is perfectly in scale with MP44 (other big carbots were 0.6 cm bigger), with 20.5 cm height (should be 20.41cm but whatever)
    A coincidence, because Takara scaled on purpouse the 5 m carbot to be slightly bigger, but here we are.

    I'd do $40 plus shipping if you are in the US. You'd have to give me some time to find his box and accessories though.

    I requested shipping without selecting the item and didn't notice but still sent me an emaiol saying they will be packing :lol  all done now just over £13 in shipping ( air mail small packet ) always found with Anime Export the cheaper shipping was just as good or faster than the more expensive

    After a 48hr hold in Japan, my Hoist is on it’s way again. Still shows tomorrow for delivery. I’m hoping that happens, I haven’t been this excited for an MP for quite a while.

    Perhaps. Although mine was held for 2days and just under 2hrs... so I guess just under 50hrs.
