    Kind of hard to resist isn't it. I have a red ax being made for me by a coworker. I already have a accurate gun for him that I got two Reston botcons ago.

    Anyone getting MP-49 Black Convoy make sure you check the antenna on the second accessory head as the left one on mine is SEVERELY damaged out of the package. It is about half the height it is supposed to be and is twice as thick front to back that it is supposed to be. I am returning it to Amazon JP for another one. Just glad it is sold by Amazon JP and not a third party seller so I do not have to eat the return shipping charges.

    That seriously sucks man. I hate it when I get one of the really egregious QC issues like the one you are describing.

    My MP-44 had two left hands out of the box. Guess I have bad luck when it comes to masterpiece releases.

    I still need to fix one of the knees on my MP 44. I might tackle that project this weekend. I think it just needs to be opened up and a drop of glue strategically applied, but still a hassle, especially given that I paid $325 for the thing.

    Both of my knees are solid at least for now. As long as you move things in the right order they stay that way at least for me.

    Fortunately there doesn't seem to be any qc issues on mine, since it would have a little more awkward to interact with amazon support using vbann as a proxy so that's good

    My MP-44 has been sitting off to the side awaiting a repair for the past 8 months or so. Currently on leg is amputated at the knee.

    Returning an item from Amazon Japan is not nearly as easy as they lead you on to believe. You cannot do it at a partner site like UPS or Postal Etc.; you have to go to a full blown DHL Express location. What a pain in the a**. Guess I will have to go out to Dulles next week. Going to wait till I get my replacement and keep the better of the two. Seems some peoples' copies have limp knees so I will check them both before deciding on which will be the keeper.
