    Yeah, definitely hope it's all QC tightening stuff, both to get the highest possible quality, and because I fear the thought of any artistic changes being made to that beautiful sculpt!

    The backpack is huge. We know.

    It's been said over 2000 times now on 815 pages worth of posts.

    It's like people just can't stop echoing the same crap over and over or something.

    It's a great looking Prime. If you hate it, stop looking at it. *shrugs*

    Seriously this thread and MP 45, is filled with the same people echoing the same criticisms over and over again, nothings changed in the 48hrs since they've bitched about the same thing. Everyone has a voice, but before you bitch...are you adding anything of value that hasn't already been bitched about before? or are you just adding to your post count?

    The types of posts we get in "reveal" threads (in order of value/importance):

    1) news/pictures
    2) insightful analysis of news/pictures
    3) humor
    4) "here's my opinion"
    5) complaints
    6) complaints about people complaining

    Ummmm. He’s agreeing with you I think?

    That’s another issue in these threads. People making incorrect assumptions.

    I’m sure you’re correct but you must be on a computer with a huge monitor to see that much detail. Most of us are on our phones pretending to work at the office. At least that’s what I’m doing. :) 

    I’m very jealous that you work from home! I’m in an open concept office without even cubicle walls! It makes it very difficult to read about Transformers at work! :) 

    And changes like Megatron’s parts getting hollowed out are to allow mass-production moulding without sink marks in the plastic parts. If a prototype is 3D printed you can make the parts pretty thick, but once you go to high production tooling the wall thickness of the parts must be as uniform in thickness as possible. Also any walls that are perpendicular to an outside wall must be 50-60% or less of the main wall thickness or you will get ugly sink marks on the outside of the figure.

    When people complain about why a figure is hollow and doesn’t have heavy duty thick plastic parts they most likely don’t understand the plastic moulding process. It’s a lot more complex than most people realize!

    No, because he was complaining about posters who complain about complainers complaining about toys. You thought he was complaining about complaining complainers who complained about complainers complaining about posters who complain about toys.
    It's a natural mistake.

    Did Takara at Wonderfest mention what led to the price increase?
