    Are those the ones that have the weird black box over the actual box? That is weird that Hasbro would put that label on the figure! Sort of ruins the look to me. Ive bought all my + figures from either Japan (Nippon Yasan) or HK (Robotkingdom) apart from MP-20+ Wheeljack that I got from BBTS. That one I remember did have a black box. I wonder if that has some weird labelling on it too.......

    EDIT: Just checked, and no weird labelling on the MP-20+ Wheeljack that I got that came with the black Hasbro box. Glad they didnt do it on that one!

    Now that you bring it up, both of my copies doesn’t even have the lettering in the same place.

    Edit: Thanks @jackisking .

    Been getting a lot of mileage out of Dinobot and some little bits I have laying around. Such a fun figure.

    Wherever a project is being completed, a cat will find its center and just kinda... exist.

    I was cleaning my bots and took out MP-28 to transform and pose a bit. Got me appreciating him all over again, bad thing is his visor seemed to almost disintegrate upon flipping it down again and I was using a toothpick...is there any replacement part/offerings by a 3rd party company for the blue flip down visor?

    Sorry to say the KO will be your possible solution to replace the part.

    Same thing happened to mine a little while back, and yeah, a KO was the only option. So I gutted the thing and replaced the chrome parts too! Looks as good as new for less than $30!

    Yep! Sorry about the delay on getting back - I got 'em at the local Dollar Tree while I was there the other day. May go back and buy a few more, if you want me to look into picking up some for you @jbwkkl just shoot me a PM and I'll happily buy you a few!
