Ordering a Grand Giveaway

It’s been a couple of years since I’ve started playing the mobage Fate/Grand Order religiously, ever since its release at the end of July, 2015…

Over the course of the period, I’ve obtained many sub accounts aside from my main (Either through trading with other Masters or buying one from elsewhere), and too switched many times between one another, until I’ve finally landed on this particular account that I’ve embraced as my primary one.

The account was originally a gift from a fellow Master, which I’ve kept as a sub for some time to accumulate Quartz Crystals which are used to summon Servants and Craft Essences. I’ve promoted it into my current main after managing to summon several Servants that took my interest, aside the few that were already in there.

However it wasn’t until the start of this year that I’ve finally cast aside my freemium status to become… a whale, so to speak.

「I Would Have Waited an Eternity For This」

Ever since the release of the inferior incarnation of the so-called “Masterpiece”, designated as MP-05, many fans cried out for a proper rendition of the tyrant that is the Decepticon leader, Megatron. 

Over the years, many third-parties took up the challenge with their own creations, some good, some not so; But all of them significantly better than MP-05.

It wasn’t until the surprise announcement last year that the fans finally got their wish fulfilled: the MP-36, or as most of us refer him as, Megatron 2.0. And with that, the quote (The title of this post) from the 1986’s Transformers: The Movie takes on a new meaning… w

Pre-ordered via Taobao in bid to lessen the shipping cost, my package arrived just over a week ago, and I’ve fiddled with the Masterpiece ever since.

As always, clad in the standardised Masterpiece style box art design, the outer shell is littered with pictures of the product itself as well as various information and features.

Aside from the usual logos, curiously there is an extra one not seen on earlier entries: Long Life Design. Apparently this is an award bestowed upon Takara Tomy’s Masterpiece line of toys, so I expect future MPs will have this logo on their boxes as well. Read the rest of this page »
