    On the contrary, this lil' guy is so much win I would buy every color of him if I could afford to. It just sucks that tis one little piece was made of styrofoam instead of better plastic or diecast like the rest of him.

    The pin on the left is showing, right now just being supported by the pin on the right.

    Thanks for the pic man. Bummer, such a nice figure and scale, but that grill area judging from these few pages back including your pic and Rewind pic does have some concerns. Decision.....

    Every time I want to transform mine, I look at this thread and put him back down on the shelf.

    I ordered mine from TF-Direct last month. First time actually ordering a transformer online, period.

    I notice though it's pre-order with shipment excepted in June. I'm assuming that's meaning to them, then later to me.

    Do they update you once they get them in and ship?

    Tfdirect are quality suppliers. You have no worries about getting your stuff or communication. They will send you an email when the item ships with tracking number.

    Cool.

    Been out of collecting since I was a kid. Got back in recently solely because a few years ago when in the hospital for leg amputation, Some family got me some as "jokes".

    They suckered me back in with "jokes".

    So when people are speaking of the problem with the grill, they are actually referring to the BUMPER, correct? o_O

    Mine is the grille, Prime's abdomen grille in bot mode, as the pic I posted shows.

    Ouch! Now that sucks. I usually apply a gentle bit of force with the fingernail to wedge in the red tab. I don't see this as much of a design flaw as a poor choice of plastic for that piece. Does mp10 official have the same cheap material for the chrome parts?

    I'm telling you, we need a brave transfan to 3D print these replacements parts in sturdier stock. Fakebuster where are you to light our darkest hour?

    yeah I'd love a new part. What really sucks is I wasn't even transforming it - I picked it up and the grille fell off because both hinges had exploded. They're in five or six tiny pieces. :/

    Boooo! And by boooo I mean just those pieces that are causing issues on an otherwise awesome figure. So much love of this thing whilst total dismay for the lackluster parts. I'm so conflicted. It's like when you meat a total babe and offer them some of your cheerios and they say, "yummy, doughnut seeds!" You can't help but be terrified for them just a little.

    I just found out about this figure and I really want to buy it.

    Right now it is just a pre order on TF direct. The images all show the lights on the cab roof painted yellow, but every review I have seen has them as unpainted red. Is KBB releasing another wave this summer that has the added yellow cab light paint apps or is this just something that was always in the stock photos for this figure?

    TF direct says it's coming out this month but I can't find anything anywhere that supports the idea of another wave of this figure being released.

    Does anyone know if the trailer for MP-10v has been released yet? I'd scroll through this thread to find out, but as this is a general thread for "VOYAGER SIZED MP OPTIMUS PRIME KO" I find that frustrating.

    Yes, it has been in preorder status (TF-direct) for a long time and that is starting to get bothersome.

    Had mine for months and that piece just broke on mine when transforming it to truck mode to compare its size to a diecast KO onslaught I just got 2-days ago.

    Shame because one side of the silver bottom bumper's hole is hanging on by a thread (that I'll likely super glue), but the other side's piece with the hole snapped off entirely and I can't find where it went. So now prime is back in robot mode with his matrix visible through the windshields; and I guess I'm okay with that... for now.

    I can understand people's desire for this. I've been displaying my iGear nemesis in stubby leg form next to hegemon. I just got another iGear nemesis in a lot from a member on these boards, with a lot of extra accessories, and those iGear guns look pretty good with mp10v.

    Do you have an extra one you are willing to sell?
