    First impression: not digging the yellow plastic they used. It's a bright canary yellow that looks kind of cheap. Doesn't help that most of it is thin panels, too.

    Bizarre that Riggorus can only turn his head about 45 degrees. I'm warming up to him, but I'm not sure if I'll put the stickers on.

    I wonder how much serious discusdson they had about putting Diecast in these. Because they compress do much from Bot mode to alt, they end up feeling light in bot mode. Normally there's some " stuff" in the torso of a bot, but in this case, they are quite hollow, with only the doors.

    Agreed! Arcee and Nightbird at least had some on their feet. Wished this was done for these molds. To give them a bit of an oomph weigh them down.

    Yeah, I'm kinda thinking that since I was going to wait for a sale on this, I probably shouldn't hesitate with it already being $105.





    Wait, hold on. Does Riggorus use different legs than MP Trailbreaker?

    Yeah, I figured that a US sale wouldn't get cheaper than this. Watch as they discount it to $85.

    I think he uses the same legs and arms as Hoist.

    Sad to see this discounted already… I hope they don’t see this as a sign that people don’t want Diaclone MP characters… That’s (almost) the ONLY MPs I get, and I still want DeepCover, Guard, Lift-Ticket, Breaker, new character Blue Hoist, and a new character red Skids out of the currently available molds….

    Some of its a character/mold that's not really popular outside of people who really collect Transformers and the other is price, while price overall has stayed the same because of the Dollar conversion they're a lot more expensive in Japan. People that do buy this stuff will pick and choose, which release to get versus going Pokemon and getting them all.
