    I wouldn't be surprised 2 cases of qc issues will be considered as widespread.

    I agree Takara should improve their QC like Bandai, and do runs so small you have to hope you can get a preorder in and even then pray the merchant didnt overextend and have to cancel your order.

    So close. So very very close.

    Seems like only yesterday that we first clapped eyes on that blurry photo of a grey prototype.

    Wonder who will be the first to upload in hand images?

    Had some free time this morning, so thought I'd give it a shot. Quick and dirty, but I like the results.

    The top is just his classic costume. Straight up Captain America.

    In the traditional costume, yes, but with 44’s proportions it didn’t look right to me - I’ll adjust when I get back home and post a comparison. Maybe it looks better to others.

    Korea is the same time zone as japan. You’re countdown is full days. 23 days. Mine said 22 days 22 hours and 22 minutes. My clock isn’t 24 hours ahead of yours. it’s only 1 hour and 38 minutes ahead of yours :p . And you posted around 5 in the morning for us. So yours is 5 hours off :p

    Let's appreciate this national treasure too, guys. You cant speak of MP44 without mentioning the great and very gentlemanly and heroic Peter Cullen.
    \side note: I love you, Peter![​IMG]

    Ok - version 2 (my original version 1) with red boots. Also, I think my favorite little detail is the A on his crest. Subtle.

    Hah of course, I’m such a dummy. I was only explaining to students the other day why we call the 1600s the 17th century, and yet the same logic escaped me this time :lol
