    They may need a signature for the package when it’s delivered. If you won’t be home, you might want to look into signing for it online.

    This is a very first sloppy transformation of MP44 and a very bad introduction of how NOT to handle a masterpiece collectable by this particularly reviewer. Just wanted his 2 minutes of fame for being the quickest to post a video tbh. Pro revievers like Wotafa or Emgo will set things RIGHT very soon. :D

    The staff here doesn't care if you guys disagree with each other, just be respectful about it. Agree to disagree.

    I'm still waiting for more. The bent antenna isn't promising, disappointed to see that. Hopefully most samples won't be like that. If it was done on purpose, that's just...weird.

    At Disneyland right now and checking my orders with AJ. One is shipping now and the other two are still preparing for shipment. Hope they all go out the same time

    My copy will arrive next week. But Im hoping somebody here in Malaysia has his delivered already. Doubt it but if I could find MP44 earlier Id buy it in a heartbeat. Lol. The wait is excruciating.

    I’m brand new to collecting Transformers altogether. That said, I’ve collected about twenty Masterpiece figures and filled in gaps with 3rd party.

    Being new, I feel quite unwelcome due to the quick and harsh chastisement either I, or anyone else I see, gets who brings up any criticisms, even if they are valid (ultimately it’s all an opinion). It’s bizarre to me, but to each their own.

    I’m happily awaiting the MP-44 along with my SoC GX-71.

    That’s not the true side of it really. Don’t worry.

    I hate to do this to you, but I was there earlier and they said they didn’t get them yet.

    Welp, looks like I might be SOL with Amazon JP. Got an email while at work that my card had been declined and sure enough had a phone call waiting on my answering machine from my banks automated fraud service. Samething happened to me when I preordered last year. I confirmed the purchase but, who knows if it'll go through. What a pain...

    Seems fiddly to me. Looks cool though. Think if I had to choose between this and Unicron I'd get Unicron. Thankfully I don't want either so I don't have to choose. Congrats guys, hope you all are happy with the finished product :rock

    That's a valid criticism of the line in general, and it's totally arguable that the MP-10 era MPs are more visually interesting.
    That said, the fact they CAN make real life-accurate vehicles turn into cartoon-accurate robots is cool as HELL.
