    Plastic feels pretty solid. I have noticed the occasional sprue mark where parts were cut off after molding though.

    :D  It does look like my one has possibly got the starts of plastic stressing. It could be the way the piece was molded though.

    Those lines aren't stress marks. They are simply an effect of how the plastic cured. While they look dodgy, they are not at risk of breaking :) 
    They're the exact same on all official figures as well and they're sturdy as heck.

    The only figures with reported breakage were the ones that had an inner part misassembled, which caused extra stress on the plastic.

    Got mine yesterday.
    It feels pretty solid :) 
    The only Masterpiece Beast I have is IT-02 Dinobot, and he feels just as great.
    But be very careful with the upwards arm joint! (The no-ratcheted one, you have to move the silver part to use) It is very tight, and after getting it stuck, I accidentally snapped the arm off...
    I took him apart and fixed it, and also loosened the other joint, so now it should work.
    The back “wings” doesn’t have the tab to peg them together for some reason, but they added an extra nub to hold them in place. (see picture) It is a little too big, but I sander it down a bit, so now it holds great :)

    I also added batteries to both heads, and wrote down the english lines:

    “<Roar!> Across the galaxy, it has come to this, Optimus Primal! Face to face, tooth to claw, yeeees. Have you anything to say?”

    “Oh, no no no, calmness, calmness please! I came only to talk!”

    “Any renegade maximal who blunders into our base will not survive! Megatron out. Incompetent insect.”

    “Aaah, you’re so impulsive Dinobot.
    Brave but misguided. <Laughs>”

    “Megatron, terrorize! <Roar!>”

    My dinobot and Blackarachnia arrive today, but I’m so impatient. Lol. Rewatching beast wars doesn’t help either.

    I'm glad they included Kay's voice…

    But to leave out his iconic YESSSS, is total blasphemy!

    only time I can find is in the middle of this line:
    “<Roar!> Across the galaxy, it has come to this, Optimus Primal! Face to face, tooth to claw, yeeees. Have you anything to say?” :)

    If I ordered one of these guys from ShowZ or TF-D, I'd probably expect to wait 'til after CNY, yea?

    Has anyone ever gotten an alert status on shipping like this? Out of the years and years of 3rd party over seas shipping I've never had this happen.

    I've contacted showstore but I wont hear back until after the holiday over there.

    Might have to do with China’s recent shutdowns.
