    Thanks for the info, it gets hard to track down the reissues. I'll try to hunt down a link for it somewhere to confirm the date/price and update the article (and maybe add a caption to the video).

    Can go back and find my HLJ invoice for the date---price was the same JPY retail, standard Takara MP10 release.

    Other metal parts on the toy include his spine.

    That's all I could find for extra information on the article. Feet and spine are die-cast. Keep the great work up brother.

    No worries on finding the old invoice. A couple things that might be easier, can you tell me what the code is at the bottom of the first reissue box? Also, can you check if your trailer has the little lip on the flip-down stabilizers that makes it easier to pull down? I could probably hunt down a pic if you're not sure what I'm referring to.

    Code is J0312, and yes, it has the little indentation to help pull the front two legs down.

    If MP12 came out in October 2012, the MP10 I bought came out in late September of 2012. Basically I had Convoy in my private warehouse before Sideswipe came in stock.

    Hope this helps!

    Don't try this one at home kids, but not entirely satisfied with Dr Wu's Wheeljack face and not wanting Wheeljack to remain mute on my shelf forever, I may have taken a knife to him one wild winter night...

    AMAZING. So much fun, man. Your love and enthusiasm for G1 and the MP line is contagious.

    Also, poor Red Alert. ;)

    Got my MP Ultra Magnus in the mail yesterday. I've barely messed with him, but I can already see that he is one of my favorite figures of all time!

    I figured I would give FT Scoria a shot with my other MP's and just got it yesterday. It is a good figure and almost on par with the my official MP's but there are little things on it that Takara would never do. I'm probably noticing the issues more now that most of my focus in on the MP's because of downsizing. Quakewave is nearly a perfect fit but Scoria is not quite there. Just my 2 cents.
