    Just checked my Dragstrip over fir cracks.

    Nada.

    Only transformed him once into robot mode though. I forgot how awesome they look too as I've been so focused on getting mp44 onto the shelf:

    The first thing that came to my mind upon seeing you MP-36 is:"you're not getting in my mind! Not with my fancy new tin foil hat on!!" :D 

    Even the look on its face and the way it's slightly looking to the right adds to it. That from the King of Manipulation himself :D

    Yeah man, you proved you're the rational "tell it like it is" Champion we've been waiting for! You drop in and tell everyone to throw our X-Transbots away cause they're such undeniable garbage, but you get a passive aggressive comment about how that's not helpful to the discussion and suddenly "TFW2005 is sinking to a new low." Hey man, guess what? He's got opinions also! We all got one! If I told you your perspective was shit and you should take it the trash, you'd probably take that as well as a thread full of people who invested a couple hundred bucks in figures they enjoy being told the same!

    I think anyone without cracks visible should shine light to it before they comment. I think it's an issue and some just don't see it as I didn't until I shone light through it. So mine may crack off upon a few transformations. Hey, but don't feel bad or knick xtb, MP 44 has a knee issue and I'm not sure how to get Takara to support it.

    Thank you for quoting this so we can all read the original post, which has now been edited by the poster and replaced with a gif.

    I didn't think my Dragstrip had cracks until it was pointed out by a sharp eye. I haven't even transformed that part once. I assume everyone has them or will have them. They just haven't noticed them yet. ShowZ said XT would be sending replacements out in the future, so no worries.

    I do wonder what Takara will be doing about those MP44 knees, though I am not invested myself. As far as I know (I haven't been following it) they didn't do anything to fix the issue with MP Dinobot's shoulder either.

    I'd argue Mp44 isn't a qc issue, it's a poor design issue. It should never have been designed with a part that needs to unlock another part and if it was it should have been designed so the second part was completely unmovable until it was unlocked.

    That said it works if you know what's happening and move the leg accordingly.

    they should add something u click on when its actual news on these threads, im not complaining or anything i just think it would be a good idea to have a special type of notification that some1 can add if its news rather than chat.

    i almost buckled and bought spoiler but sat down and looked at these again and thought whats the point these look spot on ... i do wish they had made them at least a head taller

    spent the money on the xtb trailbreaker reissue instead :lol 

    shame i have had to order new parts for overheat twice , snapped the front of the car off like a few people and the one that really done me is the cracks on the shoulders appearing out of nowhere i don't mess with my figures so was baffling , when i transformed it the day i got it they were not there and checked it when people said the had cracks the first time

    motormaster i'm not ready to swap it out for xtb's yet but never say never :lol

    After I read the OG post last night I was disgusted and literally put my phone down for the night. Ugh, the whole thing oozed with an inflated sense of self and over f*cking toys. To strangers.

    Grow the hell up!

    Keywords “for now”. I transformed once, did the mods and had no cracks. He sat unmoved for a month and bam, teeny cracks. My replacement arms are on the way from them, but I’d bet on them being the same arms so who knows if that’ll help at all.

    Aw crap. I was getting ready to buy Dragstrip. Just Dragstrip. So I came in here to see if there are any problems.
    Ugh. I just don't know if I wanna spend the time to fix it. I don't know, I'll look through this thread and see if I can identify these mods, and see if it's easy.
