    To be fair, out of all of the reported issues with Masterpiece figures, none have involved clear plastic. And many of the MPs contain copious amounts of it. I wouldn’t be worried.

    This doesn't look like a "random plastic" test shot. This looks like final, unpainted colours to me.

    Alrighty, I'll just worry about every other part lmao. I've barely touched my Lio since I got him, he just stands up on my Kingdom shelf with RID Megatron and T30 Sky-Byte.

    Haha, yeah basically.
    It’s too bad you don’t really get to play with him. Wasn’t Lio Convoy reportedly of better build quality? I don’t remember many issues, but then I wasn’t too active in that thread. Delicate paint?

    Wish all MPs were as sturdy as Inferno. That thing is a tank with durable paint and chrome and super solid construction. Don’t think I’ve experienced any other MP that was that flawless.

    Fingers crossed Shouki here will have good paint. The relative simplicity and CHUG-ness of this guy (as well as Skids et al) hopefully they’ll be more playable than other recent Masterpieces.

    That is a fantastic piece, never seen that before.
    Still have my car robots train guys but would totally be up for a commander class set of the three.

    Sometimes, I think this "MPs are made out of glass" has been blown totally out of proportion .

    21 years old to be exact. Mine are fine. No breakage but have light paint scuffing due to the way they combine.

    Something on the internet being totally blown out of proportion? Nah, that would NEVER happen. Especially not on an enthusiast message board. You’re drunk, @jackisking :drunk , go home!.

    Thanks, he and the one that forms the leg either look similar or have the same train mode so I was a bit confused on who it was.

    Yeah his 'brother' Yukikaze who forms the left leg is also a bullet train, but has a quite different transformation and bot mode appearance.
