that makes him look so much better!
With color, this went from "maybe" to "mine"
Oh yeah! Very, very nice.
I don't even know which sacrilegious exclamation to go with. Holy fucking Moses? Sweet Mother of Mercy? Jesus Christ on a Crutch that's glorious? Gloria in excelsis deo?
I'm going with Holy fucking Moses that's amazing. Just knocked it out of the park
You guys like that yellow-gold combo for the sword? I think I prefer solid gold...
Solid gold would be too expensive....
You got me.
Wow. This makes an already great looking figure look phenomenal.
I have to admit, despite pre-ordering this set, I'm amazed that we haven't heard anything from the other 3rd party upgraders. With Devy, DNA was the last one to the table, but this time around, DNA is the ONLY one at the table so far.
Yup, balls fully tickled.
It kind of makes sense. There were three big kits (PE, DNA, X2/Shadow Fisher) and a few smaller kits (Dr Wu, Nonnef) for Devastator. Dr Wu and Nonnef appear to have plenty going on right now. PE is . . . idiosyncratic* at sticking to a theme for very long. X2 is doing chain-base style kits and hasn't teased a transforming toy in quite awhile. It is surprising that no new company is coming out of nowhere with a kit (as DNA did w/Devastator), but maybe we'll see something soon. As it is, this kit does everything I need a kit to do, so I'm fine w/o more kits, but it'd be great if people that need other things can get them.
*To be generous
Or none at all. C'mon, man. That's not necessary. Some people don't appreciate it. No one's preaching to you, you don't need to rub that kind of stuff in their faces. You can voice it, that's your right, but it's not necessary.
Any way, the set looks amazing in color. I cannot wait! Might leave the wings off, though. I prefer the official wings so they can fold up in robot mode for Divebomb.
Oh, I agree, this kit has everything I was looking for in upgrades. I was just surprised that no one else is taking a stab at it too.
My only concern with this set is the hand grips. The hands on my Devy set can be really weak (they weren't able to hold this sword)
I just hope that DNA will strengthen the grips by the time they ship
Yeah, I would have preferred entirely gold but I'm still satisfied with this.
I was a bit worried the sword might end up completely yellow, so I'm glad they added the gold detailing, making it more interesting (IMO).
One thing I am contemplating is removing the cross-guard pieces from the sword. They look kind of oversized to me.
Love the wings. Damn impressive.
Don't care much for the sword(s), hands, or whatever that weird little back piece thing is. Don't even know what those 2 "exclusive gift" things are, but... alright.
theyre guns the serve as waist fillers
Ah yes, I see them now. Thanks for pointing out what they are.
