    I got mine on eBay about 2 months ago for under 100 shipped from China. Seemed like there were lots of sellers around that price

    the right should tab on mine doesn’t stay in either. I’ve pushed it in 100x and just nope

    Recently I've come to appreciate Ultra Magnus as a character and searched for the best representations of the guy.
    I have Classics and Siege. But then I was looking for a good G1 Magnus, but Burger Kingdom Magnus looks pretty shit and he's either sold out or being scalped for $60+, so I checked if he had an MP - he did but it's an unfortunate piece. Then I thought "maybe there's a good KO?" so I searched and behold, a reliable seller has him for $73! So almost two weeks ago I ordered it, and this review gives me more confidence in my purchase. I don't know when he'll arrive, but last update I got was "Received by the carrier" on the 17th. Fuck knows where it may be but I've purchased from the seller before and there're tons of positive reviews on the figure from the seller.
    God, I'm a windbag.

    Yeah shipping from China can take 2 weeks or two months, with only intermittent updates. For the price this guy is a win though. He’s big and thicc

    Yep. It's the reason why I can't give this KO 2 thumbs up.
    I got my copy about 2-3 years ago. I wonder if the newer copies finally corrected this glaring issue.

    I only got mine very recently so it doesn’t look like it unless mine is from an older production run. Other than that he’s great but it does low-key annoy the hell out of me Even though I enjoy him overall. And I guess if I had a choice between that and the butt flap I still consider it a win. But why not both?

    Yeah, that's for sure. I had an LS-03F come to me in two weeks but my MPP10 came in a month and a week after placing the order. And indeed, him being massive thicc man is what I'm looking forward to be handling. :)

    Yeah, that's the case with mine too, although if you want to have the full range of motion you have to leave those untabbed anyway. Still, one of my absolute favorites from my collection.

    I really wish Yes Model would have made this KO.

    I'm incredibly impressed with the Yes Model Stubbom Buffett (Maketoys Iron Will KO). If you've got a line on a YM Data Clerk, hook me up.

    Just packed THF-04 up for a move...he's been on a high shelf for about a year now. I completely forgot what a heavy beast he is. I'm also not sure if there was a production run variance I unwittingly took advantage of or if I just got lucky, but both shoulders on mine snap in with a hard 'click' and don't come out until bidden to do so. In either case, I suppose there's no sense arguing good fortune.

    Is this worth getting this late in the game, or is it smarter money holding out for one of the two new Mags on the horizon?

    Hyper Magnum is quite sturdy and a big boy. Just a bit limited in articulation. He's worth it, imo.

    Either robotoybase.com or eyou-collection.com. But he's been out for so long I gotta believe he's no longer available.
