    Yes lol.

    One of the knocks this figure gets (and that's fair if that's what someone feels) is how simple he is, but imo that makes him super fun to play with. He's such a FIGURE in-hand that it feels super natural to MESS with him, whereas other MPs I've found that's not necessarily the case because of one reason or another. He's like a giant purple action figure lol.

    That would be cool.

    Thank's for the suggestions everyone.:) 
    I love the way this looks, it reminds me of the commercial bumpers they used to have.
    This is great.:) 
    I love this, I hope we get more of the background seekers.
    Wow, your photos are so crisp. Ramjet looks even better than he already does.

    @ DeanML it is so awesome how far we've come with the Masterpiece line. Just need a Megatron to add to your shelf.

    @ Thundercracker awesome photos as always. TT, and Hasbro should pay you to take their photos for advertising.

    @ Maz I'm really loving your photos with the white background. Part of the reason I had to break down and go buy some white shelves for my Masterpiece collection.

    @AmonDemon112 Nice display I really wish I had room to display the boxes behind the figures, it just adds so much to the display.

    OKay I think I'm FINALLY done now lmao. Sorry, I couldn't help myself for days. He's so fun to play with.

    Sometimes you just have to say F a pretty backdrop and good photos, and just let your inner kid out to have some fun.

    Decepticons... ATTACK!

    I like the insignias on the outside in alt mode. I'm surprised you went with the modern versions.

    hehehe!

    Excellent appreciation and sharing!

    Despite some persistent naysayers on MP-29, it is quite very awesome that you, Maz, and several more others here are genuinely really having so much wonderful enthusiasm and fun time with your respective MP-29's.

    Keep on rockin', y'all!

    I go away on vacation for a few days and the place has gone to new heights with fun and quality. I'm glad everyone is enjoying Shockwave and Ramjet. Those custom seekers inspire me to botch my own paint jobs but will have fun doing them and looking forward to contribute something soon.

    Great job guys.

    with some crappy cell phone pics. One of these days, I'll try to take a better picture. I just got him in today and honestly....I love it! The transformation is very nice. It doesn't feel cheap to me at all.

    Isn't it more of a bad lottery right now with MP-11NR Ramjet?

    Like, you never know if your copy will have manufacturing issues (two left's or two rights, or something) until you actually get it?

    At least, that's what I'm gathering from the Ramjet-threads right now.

    Schrodinger's Ramjet...

    Sorry about the iPhone screen shot. This is the pic that pushed me over to the Takara side. I was on the fence because I already have QW on the shelf but after seeing this my parcel can't get here fast enough.

    It's the exact same with any product. My friends' one year old dishwasher just bit the bullet (of course just after warranty). You could easily buy a Mercedes lemon.

    Yes there are QC issues with Ramjet, but it's the freshest MP in our minds, how easily are we forgetting paint issues with Sideswipe or misassemblies with Hasbro Starscream?

    It's all a crap shoot. Workers in these factories are paid a pittance. They probably couldn't afford the figure they're putting together even with a year's wages. I'm not trying to defend bad QC, just trying to put it into perspective, which a lot of us seem to lose sight of at times.

    I'm hopeful my Ramjet will come with little or no issues, but other than the mismatched null rays or missiles (which should be easy enough to swap with another member), none of the qc issues seem drastic enough that they'll be an overly large concern to me. The shoulder issue would be bothersome, but I've seen ways to work around it. So I'm still optimistic about enjoying Ramjet when he arrives.

    I do wonder what exactly is going on with this MP Ramjet production run, tho.

    MP-Shockwave's released about the same time, but no QC-issues so far. Well, other than that one report about paint chipping or something on the slinky-hose.

    MP-HotRod has some chest-issues reported, but it's pretty darn minor compared to the unfortunate QC-shenanigans that some owners of MP-Ramjet have been reporting right now.

    That I'm not sure about. Different factories in different countries, I know that. Maybe that's what the big difference is.?.

    New vs old, perhaps. Factories that are losing the business just don't care as much.?.

    I don't think we'll ever really know.
