    Awesome. Do you think we’ll see a review of Challegner anytime soon? Just asking.

    Sounds like it's a recommendation to give the shield peg a little light sanding before using it?

    Indeed it's better to be safe than sorry. Just test it gradually until you're fully satisfied with how it fits.

    This is becoming a trend with my movie prime toys. I had to do the same thing with LT02's waist joint.

    Something on the truck mode wasn't lining up properly for this whole time (I've only transformed him a couple times so far) and just now I FINALLY realized I was rotating a part of the foot incorrectly and now it lines up perfectly! There are a lot of smaller steps that are left out of the instructions (literally whole parts of the transformation are skipped), so the first couple of times take it slow and be patient. I gave up on the instructions after the arms and torso were transformed correctly. Everything is quite logical and not complicated so you'll get it but there are a few parts that need to be lined up properly before moving on or you'll know something's not right.
    Seems to be a trend of the batteries arriving before the man himself!

    I can order batteries today and probably have them before the figure.

    Mine has been sitting in customs for 3 days now. :/

    I hope the people at Hasbro get to take a shot at a MPM of this Optimus with the same limitations that UT had and see how they would compare. Do you guys think Hasbro's could look better?

    Yes. I think they are fully capable of giving us something with this level of engineering and their sculpting would be far better than UT's. As much as I love my Peru Kill, the sculptwork is on par with a voyager figure.

    Now, would a KO company take their design and make it better? Yes lol

    Don't want to worry you, but I bought FT Dracula from ebay. Left China on the 29th, got the "processed through customs" on the 9th, didn't show up at my house until the 21st.

    Meanwhile, the KO Ultra Magnus I bought from TF-Direct shipped the day the typhoon hit and still showed up at my house five days later. Go figure.

    Of course it would look better they are Hasbro designs. The only problem is he will either be under-sized like MPM4 or be the perfect size but too expensive like Masterpiece Beast Wars Megatron

    It just hit me that this guy doesn't have his mirrors, and I'm just slightly disappointed. I get that they would've gotten in the way during transformation, but Peru Kill had his mirrors come off, and I wish they did that here.

    Oh well. Still a better vehicle mode than Toyworld's.

    Just an update. I just collected the Challenger free gift from my supplier. My supplier even throw in a pair of free LR521 batt for the inconvenience caused due to the delay. :)

    I was kinda nudging Actar to do it. Also I don’t really trust benscollectables. But thank you.
