I love it

I really love this toy. The robot mode is near to animation look, the truck also looks neat and nice. I already have one. Masterpiece Convoy is worthy for Transformers G1 hardcore fans.

The Hasbro 20th Anniversary DVD Edition...sad!!!

I am not sure about this Takara version but the Hasbro version (20th Anniversary DVD Edition) has some quality issues:

Firstly, the ball joints of the feet are a little loose (at least on mine). So the feet especially the left one on mine tend to fall off or disconnect on many occasions during transformation.

Secondly, the most annoying and I can't seem to get over it, Prime's chest (or the truck's windshield) do not neatly tuck-in and line up correctly. The right panel is protruding in robot mode!! Damn it!! I've read from other collector's blogs that they have the same problem. Is there anybody out there have a solution?

Thirdly, the ratchet clickity mechanism (whatever you wanna call it) on the waist tend to get worn off very easily (at least on mine). After only 2 or 3 months of tinkering (and tinkering carefully) the mechanism had lost thread. Now it's not clickity anymore. sob! :-(

Sorry for the ranting! Are there other ones out there that have the same problems? Or is mine an isolated case?
