    Nah people would be saying the new Prime still doesn't move as good as MP-36 and MP-44 would be getting praise for ambition but less of a pass.

    Has anyone's MP-44's voice box just stopped working? I wanted to hear him talk before transforming him earlier today, but he would only make the same 1-second noise before stopping. The mode-change sound works fine, but he just makes the same noise in different modes. I wanted to know if anyone else has experienced this and fixed it. Thanks.

    Agreed! As I mentioned, he needs the Benjies so he need to shock and awe. Btw, I like how he edits the transformations like one shake and poof, voila transformed! Such mad editing skills. I watch him primarily for the hahas. Just like emgo and the occasional tips on transforming the toys. The spicy self depreciating humor when he makes those digs at anime also is a hoot. Such a fruit loopy cake lovable weirdo! :lolol  His best imho was the BW Megs and Dinobot (it really shows how he loves the BW characters)reviews. MP-44 more like slapstick hahas.

    Battery leak?

    No what's sad is you guys keep coming on these OFFICIAL threads to promote inferior 3rd party figures. Take that crap to their respective threads and praise them there. Actually kind of tired of hearing about them tbqh. I come here to read up on or look at others MP-44 pics. Not to keep reading about these damn 3rd party figures.

    Mine does the exact same thing for some reason. I find that switching the sounds to on and leaving it there for about 10 minutes or so before trying the sounds helps.

    I'll check for corrosion next time I open the compartment. Thanks.

    I'll try that next time I transform him back. Thank you.

    I just think it's great that we are spoilt for choice with Primes.

    I love my MP44 and no way I could change it. Does that make me a TT fanboy? Personally, i dont think so.

    I look at TE and MS Primes and think they are great figures. If I could afford all 3, I'd have the lot, but as it is I still think I've got the best option.

    Do it now big buddy. You still might be able to localize the corrosive damage.

    We are all TF/Takara fan "boys" or "girls" etc etc. I'm a proud founding member:lolol . But that does not mean I need to swallow all of their sheez as if they haven't release clunkers in the past which I did not purchased on the go.

    Could not have said it better myself. So much butt hurt out there. They should go back to the 3rd party thread and cry there. Take a tissue for all the fanboy tears while they’re at it.

    If they were to release a "light" version I'd gladly buy that one also.

    I have. On mine, after about a month or two of being in a bin, when you press the button, you get about 1 second of one japanese clip. I took the batteries out and replaced them, that fixed it. Don't know if the button was being depressed in the bin and killed the batteries or just the act of removing the batteries reset the voice box.

    Nice job with the application, and I love all your photos leading up to it. If you like the look, then it's a good move. :) 

    Personally, I'm not a fan of cell shading on physical 3D objects. I'd rather let the actual surfaces produce real reflections and shadows than to have a static illustrated approximation stuck on them.
