Yes, I also used it for the pieces of the Phoenix legs.
count me as most definitely interested...meteor is an awesome figure so much better than mp11
So even if the figure appears mint, it’s better to have it fixed just in case?
Its a design flaw. Every figure will eventually fail due to the design.
I'd advise everyone to do the knee fix to mitigate compromising the structural integrity of the plastic.
The reissue will likely have the two separate pieces molded as one.
The positive I can see from this is TakaraTomy will likely stress test their future releases more vigorously during prototyping and manufacture.
It would be a shame if this flaw stops the figure receiving anymore awards and accolades.
Exactly what I said!
Why did I have this in my head when I read the bolded? LOL
So why no MP Ultra-Magnus upgrades yet?
Hell yeah! Make sure you post this in here and the Meteor thread if you decide to do this.
Be good to know what you'd expect cost to be too (If you need tips about pricing then I know a company that has recently learned a lot of lessons about crowdfunding.... )
Well, I can always have a nice statue posing with my other figures.
Surprise bonus for me. I take most of my pics on my fridge. The magnetic minifigures work brilliantly on the fridge.
YAY! Finally had a couple of hours to mess around with Prime/Convoy. I couldn't get the chest flush but oh well. Hope to find more time this or next week. I had to do the Gorilla Glue knee fix on his left knee since that was messed up. His right knee clicks all the way.
But man, while this is wonderfully engineered, not a fan of these complicated transformations. But as a G1 toon lover, I guess it's part of the deal now.
Yeah. Sent from Seattle, WA.
Amazon wanted to refund only $120 of the shipping to my card and the rest as a gift card, but I told them no, and they kindly agreed to send the entire $209 back to my card.
I find it not that complicated. Just need to do it several times to master it honestly.
I reckon you are talking about Zeta. Can you explain what happened? I did not get what happened with their Unicron.
So is the consensus currently that this is a design flaw... and that it is only a matter or time/usage that all the extended blue floating knee joint pieces will fail... or
... if it isn't broke, it doesn't need fixing? (As long as the knee blue piece tab is correctly slotting in to the white upper thigh slot)
And is the hair-dryer method the best for straightening the antennae?
It will eventually break because of the way it’s designed.
You can try hot water instead as some have had issues with a hair dryer.
I'm pretty sure if you just proceed with caution and make sure you understand how it works, and use it that way, you'll be fine.
The only part of the transformation that is complicated for complicated sake is the lower back of the legs. Those smaller panels didn't need to be there; everything else, that's how this figure transforms. If people want a simple transformation, we're never going to get a figure that is clean as TE-01, and is a articulated and contoured as MP-44.
I dunno, I didn't mean complicated as pointless/could have been done more efficiently. I think every step is needed to get the toon look. Just like MP-36 Megs. I'm comparing it more to like MP-10 or Mp-1. But the trade off here is that Convoy/Prime now looks like he jumped out of my TV screen.
When I think pointless/could have been done more efficiently, Fansproject's Stunticons is the perfect example.
I'm well aware of what I was getting into.
I'm a toon lover so MP-44 is going into my display shelf and Mp-10 is going into a storage bin, but if we never got this, I'd be perfectly fine with Mp-10.
Well that clears it all up... ummm... not really?
Are we dunking the whole head in to hot water to soften the antennae without damaging the paint on the head???
