    Just curious. You’re a little more ‘fervent’ than some of the other posters, and I just thought ‘ah it’s probably cause he’s pretty young.’ Haha cool on you then. Good luck with.... tests... or whatever haha

    I'm "fervent" towards Transformers because I like designing things. Which is why I want to major in engineering; not to design these toys though.

    I think I know how to describe MP-44 now -

    Don't do engineering. It's a trap.

    I'm of course kidding with that. I wish the best of luck to you. I'm currently 4th year engineering student, and that's a complete nightmare.

    Hmm. Interesting. How does it look in alt mode?

    Or you could buy him dinner and a few drinks first. :D

    Thank you so very much for this as it worked like a charm. I was getting slightly annoyed with this making me not like the figure, but afterwards wow! I felt that he was harder to transform than MP-36, but nowhere near as long. The parts fit seemed better on MP-36. Overall, I was more impressed by MP-36. MP-39 wow'd me more. I feel like MP-10's a better toy like how MP-01 was a better toy to MP-10. Don't get me wrong, this is a great figure that will grow on me quickly with the pose-ability. This one's going to travel with me around the house LOL fullsizeoutput_5934.jpeg fullsizeoutput_5931.jpeg fullsizeoutput_592e.jpeg fullsizeoutput_592b.jpeg fullsizeoutput_5928.jpeg

    I'm sure others have the unclean sprue marks on theirs. Mine has a chip on the front of the toe, and I’ve only just opened the box. :lolol

    Ok. Gotcha. Am intetested in the shiny G1 inspired Autobot emblems. They're quite snazzy imho.
