    Anyone get this figure? I'm curious how it is. There isn't a review thread in feedback or a video review that I can find. (please link me if I'm wrong)

    Far as I can tell, his jet mode looks cool. The bat mode doesn't do it for me though. So I'm on the fence. Pics if you have them please!

    Edit, forgot the question mark in thread title! Doh!

    i received mine yesterday..pretty cool fig..be easy with the plastic tho.. i broke one of the mounts that u use to form the wings in bat mode..luckly it was a clean snap so a little super glue and good as new..and i agree with the above statement..the sword is totally worth it...all n all a good buy..:thumb

    Mine is in the mail.

    If it is anything like NOT-Franzy and Rumble, I should be happy. And to be honest, as others have said, the sword is what sold me and the trident mode.

    im on the fence about him and frenzy and rumble..i dont own anything from perfect effect yet..for those who do what are your opinions ..ive watched the reviews but individual opinions help a little better and it looks like there is a lot of cool stuff in the pipeline like laserbeak and buzzsaw and reflector

    I liked what Perfect effect have done so far. The figures are SMALL. But they are very nicely done for that size.

    I agree with the bolded statement. These little guys go for $35 which is still a little high for what you get. Considering the size and the amount of detail, articulation and little extras I think $20 would make these things an awesome by and a lot of bang for your buck. I am of the school that 3rd party stuff will cost more than retail items but PE falls between FP($10 dollar TM can we say wow) and CrazyDev (I don't even have to go into how rediculas thier prices are).

    All in all PE is a little high in price but still in the realm of buyable. I own Frenzy and Rumble and have Ratbat on the way. I look forward to

    Eject
    Rewind
    Buzzsaw
    Lazerbeak
    and Reflector.

    I'm a sucker for GOOD 3rd party items.

    No, you can't. Not of Kingbat. Not in-hand photos, or video reviews. That's Orio's reason for starting the thread.

    They are really great figures in my opinion they come runner up to the fansproject collosus add on in things i baught this year

    Only bad thing i can say about them is the gun doesnt fit in the leg holsters too well on one of mine after a while of play wear. You could tighten them with nail polish though.

    Who in the hell displays TFs in the bathroom? And how did whoever get Shadow Demolitions already, he's not out yet, right?

    Oh and that trident mode is uber badass!
