    Do TT ever use styrofoam?

    Kinda interested to see if at this price point they improve on the standard plastic shell interior packaging.

    TT's inner packaging is PET 1, which is widely recyclable. Styrofoam would be a terrible move.

    They did on Encore Fortress Maximus. I doubt you'll see it for anything other than something like that. The Titans released in Generations and Legends didn't use it, they used cardboard.

    By Primus, he's perfect! Anyone know if that piece above the Matrix comes down to cover the Matrix? Or is it just always exposed?

    I did rough translation
    Screenshot_20190829-203907_Chrome.jpg
    So overall good impression. It seems its the same with MP45 ,39 and 36, the tolerance is tight from initial unbox so its quite scary to transform , but after multiple transformation it will be better.

    The warped antennae are kind of a bummer, hopefully they can be straightened.
