    So I dug this guy out of a drawer recently and I'm finding that his shoulders have gotten a bit on the loose side, both in the rotation and the up/down ratchet. Has anyone else encountered this problem, and if so, are there any known fixes? I can't remove pins so that's out, but I can fiddle with screws and clear nail polish if there's a way to get it into the joints.

    I haven't but try applying some Pledge floor polish ("future") or clear nail polish on the shoulder joints and let it sit for an hour.

    Ebay:
    The one being made by a board member? Canned due to someone else making one for themselves. No actual v2.

    I hope this is okay, not sure where else to ask since I am not trying to sell something here on the forums. A friend of mine says they are interested in purchasing my M01-B. I've tried looking on eBay but I can't find any current auctions to get a price range. Only thing I could find was amazon japan and it was 35kyen, seems like a over inflated amazon style listing to me. Mine still has it's box, all accessories, no breakages. If anything its just a lil dusty.

    If something's in demand and in short to nil supply, you should price accordingly, as in collector/collectible territory, price dependent on grade/quality....if banged up and not so hot, less than what you bought it for....if mint/near mint...higher?

    That is what I am trying to figure out. The regular M01 is still going for around 80, while the D seems to be less common for a range starting at 100+. Do you think 150 be asking too much since I can't seem to find it for sale anywhere?

    It looks G1ish and is almost what I wanted WJ to release as a repaint. I have the WJ and it’s awesome. Just didn’t get my signed mini poster for being in on the first order :mad: 

    but I saw you were looking and tried to help.

    Appreciate the help, I would just really like a dirty version, not a customizer, but I may have to try and take a hand at it.

    I know but not trying to pay around 100 or so for that, ordered before the dirty version came out a long while back, got out of collecting and just getting back after a 2 year hiatus.

    this one sparks my interest but, where would I find it?
