    Hmmm. My head battery cover stays on. Not that I have fiddled with it to see if it would fall off, but it doesn’t just fall off. Sucks about the gun but that’s an easy enough fix.
    I doubt the batteries would fall out and at worse case, use a bit of clear tape cut just right to keep cover on?

    Gun is not a ez fix at all.
    I've tried to open it and fix it myself.
    But it's all glued together, not a single screw where the light and battery are in.
    Not going to cut it open with a knife.
    And problem is the button, not wire or anything.
    I've posted 3 pictures.
    1 with button in, 1 out and 1 pressed in the whole time.

    Finally took the time to transform him into truck mode for my pics of my collection. Probably need a better one of robot mode tho. Atlas 1.jpg

    No I mean the head piece is an easy fix. Gun should be replaced.

    Ok next time make the sentence a bit better, because you said " Sucks about the gun but that’s an easy enough fix.".
    I guess i can thicken the edges of the head piece.
    But if i can just get a replacement, i don't have to do those things myself.
    That head cover is a cheap piece anyways.
    I just hope i can get a replacement.

    Yep, this guy hold the record as the biggest transformer now at 71cm.
    Metroplex is 60cm as Fort max.
    Wait, i think Fort max was 58 cm. Forgot exact size but i've measured him.
    That means Metroplex would be 56-57cm.

    And yes, ko party has gone crazy.
    But he's still cheaper then MP-44. :D 
    Have Takara gone crazy with the price? YES they have!

    I almost started to transform mine back and when I picked it up, just didn’t have it in me. Ha. Yours goes together really nice though. I have seen some who have transformed back to truck mode not do so good of a job.

    Yeah. Luckily I had a side job and some extra cash. Like I said, wish it were cheaper but boy am I glad I got it.
    For the record I have had issues with Takara and hasbro before as well.

    So something was bothering me with this figure. The cab lights. I feel they should have used amber colored light covers with white led as opposed to the clear colored ones with yellow leds.
    I fixed mine how I prefer since I won’t be using the leds much on display anyway.
    Still looks right when I do though.

    You can scroll up to Magnus’s pic of this truck mode to see the way they used to be in clear plastic.

    I used a Bic ultra fine permanent marker in the color “adobe orange”. It should stick fine but can be wiped off with isopropyl alcohol if need be.

    Cab measures 1:12, but the cockpit only fits 1:18 figures. The MP-10 mold's always had undersized human partners.

    A few pics in truck mode. I put him back in robot mode though. Looks better imo.
    It’s a beast to transform though.

    Ha. I won’t do again unless I am moving and makes more sense to keep in truck mode for packing.

    I'd do it again...

    Only because it's the only exercise my squishy butt would ever get.

    Mine arrived today. It took over three months on a boat from Malaysia to get here. But worth it.

    He can hold actual weapons. A full sized knife and a .22lr gun.

    This is my Lifecard. It is a folding .22lr single shot pistol. I had it laser engraved to look like Ravage.

    My Matrix is loose. The center piece falls out easily. Is that normal?
