People are ham-hands.

Don't let those reports bother you. They happened with every MP figure yet. You get someone who can't be careful or treats the thing like a toy and whammy-blammy, intant internet sob story.

If you consider yourself to be careful, then you can be worry free.

I couldn't agree with you more CP. These things aren't $10 deluxes. Take your time and for Primus' sake, use the instructions!!!

I still maintain my stance on the matter, but it is appearing that there are some design flaws that people need to be aware of. Out of any of the MP complaints, the Rodimus ones may hold the most water.

There are multiple reports of problems.

They are:

-Paint chipping from transformation and gimmick usage.

-Wing being scratched from insertion and removal from trailer. (A really, really tight fit.)

-He's incredibly fiddly, maybe even more than Megatron (though not as fragile) and if you don't line him up just right, his wheels won't touch the ground and he wobbles in vehicle mode along with the back of his head and his codpiece scraping along since they sit on the bottom of the vehicle mode.

-No matter how you transform him, he suffers from Protector's vehicle mode problem. The middle set of wheels never touch ground, just the front and rear sets.

-The slot in the palm of his hands just barely grips the rifle handles and if you wrap his fingers around it, the gun will either fall out completely, or sit there very loosely.

-And worst of all...someone posted a pic of the right forearm on their Rodimus, and the flap that allows the hand to rotate...BROKE OFF. That's right, broke off.

I'm starting to be really concerned here. Nothing I can do about it now, since it's bought and paid for, except hope that I got a good one coming from BBTS. *sighs*


I have him in hand right now, everything you have said, except the last one (broken flap) is present on my Masterpiece Rodimus. Oh, btw, I spent almost an hour trying to line up his arms and legs.

Unless you can read Japanese, the instructions will be pretty much useless though. Case in point -MP Megatron. I consider myself to be careful, and whilst transforming him to gun mode (which took an hour), I broke a piece of his inner leg. Only 1 of my 4 MPs that's damaged. Man, Megs is a b*&%h to transform #-o :BANG_HEAD:

Broke one of the smaller tabs above the mp Megatron's trigger. That part is now being held with one of those twist and ties used to tie the garbage bags. Without it, it doesn't hold into place when transformed. Plus I've been thinking of fixing one of Megatron's tabs on his black thigh plate which I broke. By drilling a hole beside that area next to it above where the tab is missing getting a paper clip and trimming it the right size and shaping it like one of its hooks then using a small screw by wrapping the part of it below to hold it in place as I screw it in with the screw driver.

Eh, I knew that. Wanted to see if we had any Resident Evil 4 fans in the audience. :)

no problem ;)

the MP is BY FAR the best representation of Hot Rod, especially when standing next to his alternator counterpart. I have no regrets getting him.
