    He just holds it up and takes about it like everyone else. He didn't put it on the figure that I saw.

    I think the battle damaged parts and/or the alternate head are considered the "bonus gift". Chances are that it's going to be a standard with every version though, just like KFC Transistor came with speaker trumpets as a "pre-order bonus" and it's standard with every release. Unless they specifically put 'bonus items" in a seperate set of mouldings, there's no real benefit in not including them going forward.
    Um... pretty sure that's a post-production photo effect? Doesn't actually come with light up eyes, some photographers just like to add them in post.

    My MS-01 is in storage at TaoBao. I won't be ordering anything else till late next week though so it will have to stay there for at least another week. Shipping would be $US12 if I ship it today on it's own. Fortunately, I just picked up my latest TaoBao order this morning so I have a number of figures to tide me over. And who knows, maybe TE's will drop in the next week or so and I can ship them out together.

    Someone get Ben a coffee. He sounds half-asleep for most of the video.

    Whew, Ben's review quelled any misgivings I had.

    Just put an order in at show z. This will be my new Prime. MP 10 had a good run and will be retired into my Prime shelf.

    Looks great in that review, I think it's just the right blend of cartoon and toy for my taste.

    Though Ben keeps mentioning that the stripe isn't cartoon accurate, but that's not really true. The cartoon isn't consistent at all, but the stripe does show up.

    Sure it's often not there as well, but one way isn't really more correct than the other. That's kind of why I hate chasing cartoon accuracy, since it's a mushy target to begin with.

    That MS truck mode might be the deal breaker for me, but the robot mode looks great. I think i will wait to see how the mp44 kos look loke to make a decision....

    He also mentions MP-01 starting it when the G1 toy had the stripe in the first place. Like I said before, Ben needed some coffee before that review.

    I think he is trying to ASMR.


    And Ben's wrong about shit 80% of the time. He gets his info from random people on his Facebook group.

    I thought he meant that you could still see the cab stripe on the back of figure and his lower arms in bot mode. I must say that TE has really his those well.

    His pics / vids don't lie though, it's all there to see and at the moment he does some of the best presented and highest image quality English language TF reviews. Nice and calmly presented too.

    Bens's MS-01 review is certainly enough to either make people commit to MS or not. Also great group shot at 12:10.

    ASMR for sure though :D , watching his reviews late night guarantees the onset of sleep before the end.

    I haven’t had a chance to watch Bens review yet, but is there a reason he put it on his KO channel instead of his main review channel?
    He doesn’t think this is a KO of something does he?

    He mentions something about it came from TF-Direct. Maybe he has an agreement with them?

    Yes, I believe that's what he said even though I'm not sure it makes sense given that TF-Direct doesn't sell only KO's? Or maybe he can't give them a shout out on his non KO account because they DO sell KO's.
