Ooof tough one. I'd probably wait for an MP 52 reissue and reviews that at least guarantee a better fit than the first release. My reasons are threefold... 1) I enjoy a wholesome release--meaning I really like when a figure comes with all the extra parts, stands, blast effects and faces that MP52 did. 2) I enjoy a good, fun transformation scheme, which MP52 invariably has 3) I am loving the whole "realistic vehicle turns into very retro looking robot" aesthetic that Takara have been getting on with. Price and curiosity for DS may swing me to get at least one of their seekers to see what it handles like, but it'd be missing points 1 and 2 from above.
