    Sorry but that’s a recipe for disaster. Ever see, heck ANYTHING that’s on display for people to “touch” or look at aka a display model? It’s always beat down to be damned after just a month...and these MP are far more fragile.

    People taking selfies with museum exhibits only to destroy them is the limit. MPs won’t stand a chance. I had a friend’s kid break a KO Prowl and he just said, “I’m a kid. What do you expect? I don’t know what I’m doing.”

    Better charge a lot for admission.

    Would be awesome if they made these parts die cast as well!

    If this kind of thing happened to me, I would not feel angry, but really really sad. I am weird about these figures but it would be like if they were injured. Imagine if he broke your MP-44: not only is he expensive, but if I had it, he would have a very very special value to me, because OP, because first official MP, because of other things... I guess it’s what you call sentimental value.

    I know it’s just toys but why can’t people understand that you work really hard all day long to pay for these things because it makes you happy and not respect it?

    A lot of people seldom respect the property of others or the hard work needed. I was luckybit was a KO and not Cordon like he started going towards.

    No one and I mean no one plays with Prime. They can look but touch.

    It took me a while to get there but now I feel fine with ppl messing with my figures. I feel if someone breaks something at least I had a good run. That said it may take some time to get there with mp-44.

    That right there is a child taking advantage of his parents’ low expectations and then trying to pull the same stunt on other responsible adults.

    I did get one of my buddy's kids into MPs. He has a few and I bought him a couple so he knows what he's doing. I'll let him marvel at Prime once he comes in.

    Exactly. These are EXPENSIVE. One of my ex's family members had a kid who's idea of playing was smashing toys together violently. I let his parents know that they would be replacing anything that was broken. The kid was heavily monitored and kept away from my collection.

    Light up matrix just like MP-01? I'd love that! But judging from pictures, that doesn't seem to be the case unfortunately. They would've shown that off like they did with BW Megs' light-up eyes.
