    BBTS still doesn’t have MP-09 in stock.

    Thanks!
    Believe you me, as soon as I got the email notification, I emailed them to ship it with all of my Roller Stash items ASAP.
    I really hope there are little to no issues barring me from fully enjoying the fack out of this figure.

    At least it's better than the previous going rates on eBay for the V1/2's!

    Yes, I will be putting MP09 through his paces and taking some glam shots and posting the good ones here.
    I’ll write up my overall impressions, hopefully sometime next week.

    True. If I get this reissue it'll be off TB. About $150-$160 shipped tops.

    Got him delivered from ShowZ a few days ago. Surprised by how light he is and so far no issues with him as reported by others. He's a decent place holder until the rumored 2.0 version comes around.​

    Just once to see if I could display him in vehicle mode with the trailer. Took my sweet time cause I didn’t want to pop the shoulders or knees :eek:

    How are the knees?

    This mold had incredible issues , with this reissue many of us are waiting for a lot of fixes.

    Who ever said something about a loincloth ... thanks for ruining my toy experience! ‘Indelibly seared’ is how I would put it ...

    Payed ShowZ in full on 12/9
    Shipped on 12/29
    Received 1/10

    I couldn’t give you an accurate description as this is the first time I’ve had this version and was very careful bending the knees during transformation.

    Good lord, it took him 20 days to ship your order??
    Basically a full month from order placed to order received. That's just too long of a wait for an in stock item, even from China.

    I messaged them when I found out he was instock and they told me that they ran out of their initial stock and sent me one out as soon as it got in. Plus they gave me $10 discount code for my next order so I was good on my end ;)

    My last order from them was placed 12/1 and I didn't receive it until 12/26. It was for an ins stock Macross Valkarie KO. That was too long af a wait. The fedex smartpost USPS delivery that ShowZ uses doesn't help the wait time either.

    Smartpost definitely plays a part in the delay as you’re dealing with FedEx and USPS instead of one shipping company. The fastest turnaround time I had from them was 3 days when Sever was re-released.

    Outside of that ShowZ is a very good seller with reliable service. I just have to decide whether or not I'll be cool waiting a month for my order the next time I contemplate ordering something from him.

    Is Smartpost the only way ShowZ ships? It's really unclear from the website as to whether you choose, or they choose. I would pay a premium if I got to chose the shipping method, because life's too short to leave it to Smartpost.
