    Search some of the Facebook groups. I scored my second IT Megatron (after having sold off the first) a few months ago for $100.

    Well hey, I bought the official MP-44, and the MP-36. I only sold off MP36 when I saw first hand issues were rectified and the paint had a better finish to prevent chipping.

    I have no problems going official. Just trying to avoid further conflict, I know this topic is a blithe of the community.

    Beautiful.

    That DB really looks the part there. Shame the alt mode is what it is.


    Yup.

    On the same token, I have no problem calling stuff like it is. Fake shit.

    Speaking of returns, has anyone recently sent one back to Amazon JP that I could PM a few questions?

    Thanks. Just ordered him through TF-Direct. Almost 20 bucks cheaper than the asshat on eBay I tried to order him from.

    What’s the safest way to straighten up the antennae?

    Probably dipping them in hot water (boil it, but take if off the heat before dipping). Using a hairdryer can lead to uneven hotspots that can warp them even worse, or even melt them. Water will be much more even heat, and controllable. Then you can shape them, and then shock them in cold water to get them to set. Or let them cool naturally and press them between some books or something.
