Anyone know if the orange plugs on these are easily removable without damaging the figure:

I did see a video where he said it's easy to remove but it will take the paint off on the inside of the barrel. Pretty sure it was emgo's

But maybe bbts had the smarts too think that they are being shipped outside of the U.S so they don't need the plugs and just left them in the sealed takara box?

If this is the correct interpretation Bowspearer I suggest ordering from Ami Ami where it was still in stock last I checked and doesn't come with the plugs. Note that both of mine that arrived last week from them were double taped but I'm sure that will be the case wherever you order it from.

Amiami and RobotKingdom still have stock, but no discount. I don't think either have orange plugs.

The plugs vary by distributor, but most come out with a little force and or a low-hear hair-dryer, and some are found rattling around in the plastic trays having fallen out in transit.

I think both of my orders from HLJ were single taped. Would have to check if you want.

Everyone seems a little confused. My MP-36s didn't come from BBTS, they came from HLJ, so yes, MISB and MISC - as in still factory sealed.

I was doing some looking around and BBTS seemed to still have stock hence my question. That said, I may have found an alternate Asian source to get a third one from.

But HLJ also opened and installed orange plugs.

Not for Australian orders. They retracted their initial decision after customer feedback.

Thanks Griffin and all.

Thanks I'm still waiting to hear anything. I've written to them 3 times over the past month and they haven't responded once
