    How long did it take to receive yours?


    Also the pics I've seen on other sites show BMB 'hide with orange and blue LEDs. Perhaps it is just a newer batch.

    I'm mad that I somehow lost the 3D Autobot logo for the tailgate, but I just got a serviceable replacement from Toyhax, so it's not a total loss...
    I just wish I knew what happened to the original pieces...

    I see a red bot logo and I want to paint it black...

    It was little less than a month from aliexpress. Yeah 1 weapon should be orange but mainly there is reviews of ls09, and this is aw01. It has better shoulder as i know, it stay very well. It is not floppy as the in the videos or as my mpm6.

    Weird. Probably changed it between the batches. Or maybe it's a factory error? If that's the case you could contact your seller for a replacement if you believe the pics were misleading...
    I for one much prefer his guns having different colors.

    Oh, lucky. Mine's been shipped on the 19th of May and still no update. :( 

    And AW01? First I've heard of that specific MPM Hide KO, but hell anything that isn't the standard MPM6 has gotta be better. Lol

    Mine was in the package but at some point they came loose in bot mode and and can only assume I dropped them or lost them in a bag somewhere between shoots. Or I took them off and stored them somewhere with the intent of gluing them and they are sitting behind my desk or in a drawer somewhere and I just haven’t found them.

    I just got the OS Ironhide. I've heard a lot of debate on how to get the new upgrades tabbed or sitting in the "right way". Is there a good transformation video that shows this? Most of what I can find only has the original.

    Asked my seller, he said that the newest batch has no autobot symbol(license problems) and only blue led guns. Weird but at least it is not broken.

    Maybe you could get the Autobot symbol as a 3d printed part?

    I am not interested in it so much, won’t pay for it. I have the mpm6(probably ko version) with the symbol. The changed yellow led is more frustrating.

    I can imagine, I custompainted mine to match the Prime1 statue, it would not look right with both led's blue.

    So I bought 2nd hand figure from a guy for cheap just for around $25.
    The guy said he accidentally broke the back panel. He said he tried every glue he can even the one melt the plastic together.
    (So first I tried by drilling a 1mm hole through the plastic using a manual hand drill, putting a small metal clip inside as a base structure, and gluing the inside.)

    (first clip installation)

    (2nd clip installation)

    (Then trimming the clip and sanding it down a bit)
    4.jpg
    and voilà, snug as a bug.
    It's not perfect but ehh it works.

    I had this same backpack problem out of the box but got the part replaced through after sales. Still have the old broken assembly, actually.
    So the sticker worked after a little paint and slight trimming!
