    The shoulders seize up when the...cog/gear/ratchet(?) comes into misalignment...IIRC...

    I haven't had any trouble with the one I got / 1st edition.

    Heads up about MP Dinobot

    I googled the topic, that thread came up first. It might explain it better than I.

    Be sure to remove the batteries before they begin to leak if they're dead. I always just remove batteries when not using them. I've seen what happens to TV remotes. :lol

    Still having trouble trying to match the metallic orange/copper/gold/whatever on his legs before I clearcoat them with that Future stuff. It seems the hobby shops in my area have a very limited selection of colors. I tried posing him again the other day and moved his leg just a little and YOU GUESSED IT. Same spot chipped a little more. It's weird it's happening because I feel like the clearance is literally a nanometer off of it having no effect whatsoever on the paint, but it just barely scrapes his waist plastic and that's what does it. It is mildly disappointing and I'm debating trying to find the KO version somewhere.

    Has anyone else had luck in matching this paint yet? I don't know much about mixing and people I've talked to who work at those shops have said various things about the luck I'd have trying to mix metallic paints.

    Sometimes it’s just easier to repaint all the parts in whatever colour you manage to get.

    Still nothing. I think my final solution is to just not buy Masterpiece figures anymore. I got Blackarachnia as well and put that accessory on her face and it scratched all of the gold paint where it was. These are so poorly thought out. I'm lucky the only thing that happened to my Megatron was the stretch marks on his panels. So angry.

    Are these paint chipping issues still happening on the second release? Or is this still all from the first?

    I've so been suffering from that exact area chipping... it gets worse every transformation, which sucks because I love transforming my collection. Just something I'll have to deal with

    Mine was the second release so yeah. It's funny because when I first got him, I wasn't careful at all because I didn't notice the clearance/delicate paint, and then one day I was just posing him slowly and gently and I noticed a chip and it gets worse every time I touch him.

    My Dinobot is fine, but I always treated that area really carefully and opted for poses that didn’t bring the thigh to close to the crotch for that reason. Now I’m hesitant to ever break that habit.

    Damn. For $300 his paint shouldn’t wear off until I’m dead of old age.

    Paint is still paint, and plastic is still plastic. Regardless of how much these cost this doesn’t change.

    Do we know if the second release is from Hasbro Asia or Takara? Curious if it will or won't come with a coin or pin...

    Depends a lot on where you buy it from.
