For all the negativity around this figure and people saying it's a disaster, backpack, feet kibble, etc etc. It's interesting to see that Facebook groups and eBay are flooded with MP-21s, often with the Spike figure "missing". i.e. They want to keep the Spike but upgrade the old Bee for the new one. Clearly Takara are doing something right to appeal to so many people despite Takaras extortionate pricing, lazy engineering and (admittedly) haphazard QC standards.
