    Just wanted to ask real quick: I picked up Cheetor as mentioned, but I’m not sure if it’s the reissue or an original release. I heard there was a new issue with the reissue? Could someone elaborate for me? Thanks.

    In fairness they both had there issues. I don't think 21 had looseness in spots like 45, but his paint issues may have been even worse as there were a lot of people complaining about mix-match paint jobs on 21. 45's is sloppy but he's all the same yellow all over. MP-10 got hammered on his qc issues, breaking leg panels and headlights, the front bumper that wouldn't line up, and the front chest windows not lining up properly when closed. If I remember right the original score on amazon jp was 3 stars, the Japanese fans were pretty brutal as at that time the 21000 or 22000 was a lot of money at the time for a figure

    Perhaps - that's up for debate. One thing we can agree on is that it's a good thing Wheeljack is just a repaint and not a new mold or else that'd be busted too :lol :lol :lol

    I don't really remember too many issues with the reissue, I know the original had issues with his shoulder hinges and arm guards.

    So this sucks, I recently decided I wanted to grab MP-38 too, and he’s available on AJ for a good price. Even better, I can use my shipping refund from Hound to pay off like 2/3 of him so he’ll only cost me $40. Here’s the kicker: Coronavirus....I have to wait until AJ starts shipping to the US again.
