While the first in hand images of Transformers Masterpiece MP 43 Beast Wars Megatron made us all drool a bit, it seems that might have been a bit premature. The toy looks amazing, of course, but we are now getting reports of breakage. There is indeed an extra instruction page for Japanese readers that was meant to help avoid some problems, but that may not help most westerners. The plastic is also said to be rather thin, leading to stress marks which are very revealing on purple plastic. I don't know about you, but that broken crotch is the stuff of nightmares to me.

These images come from a Hong Kong fan and can be seen below. This is simply meant to warn you to be careful when handling and transforming this great looking figure when most of us get it next week.

We had had another report of a broken crotch right out of the package from Goldimus Prime over at TFW who posted this image.

Hopefully we can get a Siege-quality revisit of Beast Wars some day. The masterpieces are pretty, but I don't want to transform a Faberge egg.

Yeah I’m not gonna start blaming a toy until this is mass released and there are multiple reports. I’ve broken some just by applying too much force and pushing something that shouldn’t be pushed because I read instructions wrong.

Never blame QC until I hear 5-10 reports

I'm hoping this is a Dinobot case where the early ones are hit-or-miss and later batches are much more solid. That said: Jesus, Takara, get your **** together. You better not screw up Blackarachnia.

I dont think there were later batches with Dinobot. Me and Ironhidensh got ours the same time. His was super solid and mine got his head broken off during transformation.

Oh my gods, that looks terrible.

My sympathys go out to all who have ordered him.

I'm happy with my original Megatron (even with his dinky color scheme and face). Masterpieces look amazing, totally agree but I (30 something year old manchild) still plays with Transformers and transform a lot. So I don't collect Masterpieces anymore.

Broken Transformers, man one of my top 10 nightmares.

Well that settles that. I will not be transforming him then. God that’s depressing

Can we change the headline to "Report", instead of "Reports"?
I feel like we are jumping the gun here, just like we did recently with the "running change" on Siege Starscream.

I was hoping for G1 style first part of trilogy, beast wars (with II, neo, and Transmetals all thrown in) then RID/Unicron trilogy revisits for the last part, when I first heard about it.

If posting this means people are more likely to be careful and not break their toys, then I feel I have helped.

If I'm going to spend that much money on a Transformer is better not break during transformation. I'm getting less enthusiastic about the MP line.

Fortunately, I have no intention of getting this MP Beastwar Megatron, so I won't have to worry about paying boku bucks for a figure that will shatter after a couple days anyway.

But there's only been ONE report, but the way it's written makes it sound like there's been multiples, which at the time of me writing this, there hasn't been.

Well, if I was buying a $300+ figure, I'd rather know about any and all problem areas asap, so as to minimize any potential issues, but I see your point
