so has no one tried this?
It fits on the KFC hands, so it should fit on the Eness hands. It's not as good as the stock hands, in that it's not as snug and it doesn't sit completely down to the base of the forearm, but it fits well enough to hold poses and look good.
So I ordered these from tf-direct, but there was no Autobot emblem in the box for the left arm (searched the box a lot) and they've offered me a sticker sheet - is that good enough, is the emblem supposed to be in the box raised? Not sure what to do really :/
Their is no emblem. The idea is to take the original out of mp10's regular shoulder, shave the two nubs off its underside and then glue it on the new shoulder. Its only slightly held on the original with some cheap glue and can easily be poked out once you disassemble the shoulders.
Or yes, alternatively just put a sticker in there.
Oh! I thought from what others had said there was meant to be an emblem included. I guess I'll try the sticker, and if it's really isn't good enough I'll try and figure out how to push the other one out.
There was an Autobot insignia included with my order from BBTS. It wasn't in the product's packaging, but was in a baggie in the shipping box. It's a raised insignia just like the official version has, and I wouldn't accept a sticker as a replacement unless you'd prefer that.
Seriously? well shit I probably threw mine out then, damn it. Though I usually am very thorough with my shipping boxes and certainly don't recall any extra baggies, hmm.
The symbols are trademarked so I don't see how sf could manufacture a solid one and not risk running in to legal problems with that also. Gahhh.
Yeah, I was surprised they did that. It's an exact replica of the symbol on MP10, and is raised plastic with nice paint an adhesive back so it fit exactly into the space on the shoulder.
I like the smokestacks and Matrix.. not sure about the arm mod.
To those of you who have this kit + the Eness hands. Does Shadow Fisher's Energon Axe fit at all on top of the Eness hands?
Got these and installed them. I dig them a lot, I can live with the arms the same way I can live with the legs on the MP-13
my one big issue is that in truck mode the cab doesnt tab into the legs anymore so its floppy compared to when the stock arms are included
So, the update to the emblem situation is - there is no way I'm getting one from tf-direct (not that I blame them!). Is there any kind of contact out there who can sell an emblem on its own? I really will have to switch back without the emblem, I don't feel like destroying the stock for the mod...
I don't have the Eness hands, but I can say that the LED gimmick is actually really nicely integrated, the head as well.
the axe fits better on the eness hands than the stock axe ever did on the kfc hands at the very least
Oh, I imagine it's pretty awesome when it's lit up! It's just that I already have the Nonnef eyes on my Takara and I won't see it on 99% of the time..
I'd love to see a pic of how well the SF axe fits over the Eness hands!
If you're not interested in modding the original shoulder piece, I think your options are either to use a white outline Autobot symbol reprolabel, or get one of the Ocean Plastic symbols designed for the Weijiang MPP10. These symbols are a little too large to fit in the Shadow Fisher recess by about 1mm, but maybe you could live with having it raised and fixing it to the shoulder somehow.

I'm planning on purchasing SF-M01B (the replacement arms) for my Hasbro Masterpiece Optimus Prime, but I can only find the Japanese version online. Does anyone know if the red plastic of Takara Tomy's MP-10 Convoy matches the red plastic of Hasbro's Masterpiece Optimus Prime?
The Takara version, from what I can tell, is painted. However, the reds are virtually identical, and it takes some effort to distinguish which is which.
Alright, thanks for the quick response.
Because it just looks so cool !!
Easiest to ask in this thread: does anyone have one of these right shoulders to sell? The one without the autobot insignia. Either the SF piece or the original Takara one would do me fine, I imagine for people who've installed this you might not need to keep both. I'd buy the set but I don't want to pay $40 for the entire forearms, axe and stacks together, I just need a spare shoulder plate.
