    But how do I know THAT wasn't a lie???

    And thanks for clarifying. I never assumed it didn't until I saw that translated comment. My guess is their copy was just a bit stiff, as some figures are in the beginning (especially those who have a ton of paint everywhere).

    Sometimes I discover a point of Articulation days after I first pose it or something because of stiff joints Lol

    Really, I love the comparison to 3A. It may not look -quite- as good as 3A in a vacuum, but having a transformation more than makes up for minor details that aren't 100% screen accurate for me.

    As a side note, I can't wait to stand this guy up next to MPP10 and M01! I wonder how the truck mode will scale with them...

    it will be fine, I’m sure they are there packed under the collapsed boxes. They definitely had to squeeze everything for space if the box isn’t that much bigger then the standard.

    Yeah I get it, but for me it's cool to see once or twice but it's so clear that the entire point was to live up to 3A (even to the point of having an extra head for it?) and the comparison has been done like 10 times now that I'm only seeing flaws now. It wasn't a bad thing it's just been over done and isn't helpful anymore to me.

    Looks really good, but unfortunately the transformation is way to complex for me to be able to do.

    It doesn’t look that bad. You ever tried transforming MP-36 or MP-44? THOSE are insane!

    Have faith in yourself pal, honestly it’s not as complicated as it initially looks. I was super surprised and how intuitive the transformation is. After about 5 minutes of looking at the instructions you have a sense of how everything is suppose to move ect :)

    So... is there anywhere on that box that says Toy World?
    Methinks they unofficially changed their name to Tactics Waistcoat and that's what the TW now stands for, much to everyone's confusion.
    I mean, what else would that TW in the logo stand for if Toy World is no longer on the box?

    Looks like one of Freedom Leaders ears are bent/misshapen in your review. Hope it's fixable.

    They quietly changed their name a while ago. There wasn't any confusion really, just ridicule for the stupid name.
