    Yeah I'm going to shoot for the full replacement, as I am not comfortable knocking pins.

    Yeah usually I don't use transformation tutorials at all, or even instructions other than to check if I missed something, because it ruins the puzzel aspect for me. The one time I do for this specific area...it bites me in the ass haha.

    After Messing with BMBs version of prime and BC version of prime (nemesis recolor) I have to say, although the BMB prime looks better, the plastic quality of BC is slightly better imo.

    Does any of them actually tab the smokestacks in place in bot mode and they stay?

    BC looks like crap in regards to aesthetics, but it looks sturdy and almost Tonka Truck like in appearance as well.

    Both my Nemesis BC and BMB have stacks that stay in place in bot mode, not rock solid but they are not floppy like my official was. I agree with you, aesthetic wise BMB wins hands down. The paint (not flawless), shoulders, back and tilting firewall abs definitely make him stand out. I have noticed a few cracks and stress marks in the clear side window tabs/pivots on the BMB sadly.

    Looks BMB; plastic quality BC. If you want one to transform over and over until your hands bleed i would go with the cheaper, BC. If you want one to transform a few times but mostly display, BMB. I've transformed my BMB a hand full of times and there is stress marks in the clear plastic and scuffs in the paint, however it is the better overall figure.

    Is this the BMB/HeinMamba right?
    Just want to ask the scale of it's Truck Mode compared to the Official MPM Bumblebee's Car Mode? and MPM Ironhide's?

    I just opened my black mamba LS-03 tonight. Sadly the truck part on his right shoulder was broken off. Does anyone know how I can get replacement parts? prime.jpg

    If you bought it through a seller such as Show.z contact them and ask, if through Ebay likely you'll be able to contact the seller and/or get a replacement figure or parts if you're lucky

    The grey disk/hinge piece that broke is currently holding together with some UV glue, but it's fragile - if I try to transform it, it snaps again. So for now, at least I can display it on the shelf until I can find a way to get a replace part.

    Still worth contacting the seller, you may be able to return it as the product received is faulty and Ebay has all manner of convoluted terms about that.

    You will probably have to pay return shipping though if your ebay seller agrees, that would be likely. Hopefully something works for you buddy :)

    That's Weijiang's take on Black Apple's MPM4 redesign- a figure most of us are looking forward to

    That's unfortunate. Mine was pretty much perfect, but for a misassembled elbow.
