    Here is a good quality copy of the images of the white version. Should be out in July and retail for $11!

    Why is the white version cheaper? Cuz it makes the gun look lame?

    Yeah, that's a significant difference. And since I don't care about the gun, how can I get this version?

    Originally, I wanted this XT007 MP22 add-on as a spare part/back up should the original MP22 plastic white hinge breaks/ wears off at the shoulder. Now that the pic has confirmed that is not the case, I have no use for this XT007 MP22 add-on. If they include a spare hinge into the package, then I'll bite, otherwise easily pass.

    For the gun itself, definitely the normal/lavender add-on version looks more uniform and better. The white version looks like an unfinished product when combine with the lavender gun.

    They really cut down on little engineering details that would have made him so much better. That, along with paint and QC standards.

    Got any photos of your modification? I'd love to see what you did.

    I've got no problems with my MP-22, so I can't justify getting this upgrade.

    I guess the shoulder articulation doesn't bother me because when my Magus is out of the box, he just stands there in a neutral position or is in alt mode.

    A little bit of Money for a little more articulation, sure, why not! My one complaint on mp22 has always been the hands and small gun. Got the replacement hands already now for the gun upgrade and a little extra shoulder articulation. Loving it!

    Looks like a nice upgrade for the price. Will definitely be getting it!
    Wish there were more faces for Ultra Magnus though since Takara already put in that option.

    ^^^^THIS!
    Someone should get their 3D printing hustle on and make some replacement faces. I'd be down for some smirks, smiles, groans or even an "Optimus Prime just died and left me in charge" face...

    With the new shoulder pieces added i wonder if the blue flaps can come down in vehicle mode?

    Mean the ones in the middle of the trailer?

    Should be able to, since that area's not being replaced.

    I honestly don't even know if I care about the shoulder replacements but that gun part looks so nice the set can't come soon enough.

    Same here, I'm getting this set for the gun. My biggest gripe with the figure has always been the stubby little gun he came with. Magnus is supposed to have a rifle not a long barrel pistol. Looks really out of place on my shelf since MP-10 is rocking MP-01's rifle. I most likely will not even use the joints.

    Also some one mentioned when this thread first started, why wouldn't they make a new top cab portion that folds up better and deals with the butt flap. That would make this set a must buy for a lot of people that are meh about it.

    I know this off topic, just thought I mention it, I hope that DX9 takes on making a kit to fix Apollyon issues.

    I'm getting this, the KFC hands and some selected Reprolabels for my MP-22. I wonder when it's arriving. Isn't already overdue?
