OMG what drama.

I have the Optimus Prime and had Ultra Magnus twice...
I love the design of Ultra Magnus, but he's such a damn big armor drone.
Hollow chest, giant back pack, Tower legs.

I might rebuy him and just 3d print more normal versions of those legs.

What a disaster peoples. Never heard this before and I'm old (33).
Anyway, good thing I hear about recalls and refunds.

Hope it all works out for the peoples who bought the set.

8-} Licensing issues....... :lol:

Good thing how consumer voices mean something in Japan even with regards to toys.

Really! This slag that hit the fan is such a frickon big deal! The sound chips may have some alibi in the encoding. Maybe the company subcontracted to do the encoding might have been a green horn in the industry. MoOlding issues ( age related and a half ass effort to restore them ( again, this fig was announced waaaaaaay back in 2013) but the packaging snafu? The type setter who prepared the negatives for the packaging and the supervisor who should have triple checked this before approving this is sooooooooo LAME! Or could this be sabotage? Someone needs to perform sepukku!
