    TFSource never got them, nor did Chosen Prime. I imagine other US retailers were stiffed as well. Seems like DX9 produced a far smaller number of replacement parts for Richthofen than there are figures affected.

    I actually was hooked up with a replacement part by another board member, so at this stage, my issue with Dx9 is on principle.

    Is there anything new concerning the Release Date?

    AND NO, i am not an Asshole, only because i want DX9 to speed up a little bit.
    This Delay from Rodimus is even more worse than the one from UT Challenger.

    1 Year Delay - i understand.
    But there is not even a Sign of a Release Date on the Horizon.
    So i assume Release will be 2019.

    Man that's like 20% bigger than I wanted (not for scale with anything, just sheer size). I'll wait for GT to see if theirs is smaller.

    Why would Rodimus be smaller than Optimus? Or were you hoping it was a Hot Rod and not a "Prime"

    I guess I thought of it as Hot Rod rather than Rodimus Prime, but that's neither here nor there. I'd prefer them both to be about MP-32 height instead of MP-10.

    Yeah, I felt this guy is Hot Rod instead of Rodimus, maybe from the face?
    But I like the size of it.

    Fingers crossed that it's high quality. I remember someone being unimpressed with the prepro sample a while back.

    fair, i like the size as i'm not a fan of any of the BW MP figures and find them to be garbage, it'll be interesting to see this next to Leonidas in both modes

    WARNING!
    Guys, looks like this is again filled with DX9's poor QC, be very careful and make sure you buy from a retail with good customer service.

    I just saw a thread here on Baidu from a Chinese collector.

    日常中奖之DX9补天狮 顺便吐槽一下这款玩具真的槽点太多开盒发现几处顺边问题时还以为现在厂子都这么任性【变形金刚玩具吧】_百度贴吧

    开盒发现几处顺边问题时还以为现在厂子都这么任性 都和PE龙翅膀一样为省成本单边开模 仔细看了其他变友的返图才发现是真顺边了 这QC太差了 好歹500+的东西呀不应该

    把玩后发现问题不少
    变了一次发现很多地方掉漆
    冷兵器根本插不进小臂孔洞 强硬插了下 只塞进去一半 拿出来武器握柄全是红漆
    肩膀和大腿根的齿轮关节紧过头了 肩膀齿轮关节的平举关节又细得可怜真怕会断
    而手臂和膝盖的金属连接件又松过头了 虚位还大 摇起来晃动弧度还蛮大
    最扯淡的是膝关节 也是金属连接件 但为变形设计有几段关节 简直扯淡的结构 没有卡扣人形膝盖弯曲简直就是笑话

    Simply translation:
    1) wrong parts
    2) can't hold weapon, arm's hole is too small.
    3) joins either too tight or too loose
    4) knees unstable problem because poor design.

    And I just found this pic from the Taiwan reviewer's, on page 18. As you can see, this version's elbow has the same issue as above, but not the thighs. (BTW, the Taiwan reviewer had high hope for it and he was very disappointed in the review for this).

    Welp, that’s that. I’m skipping him. Get your shit together, DX9.

    Maybe once this flops Generation Toy will restart work on theirs.

    Maketoys should poach whoever designs DX9's figures.

    Fans would get acceptable QC and a company that stands behind their products. And the designer can finally collaborate with someone that does their work justice.

    I was on the fence about this guy due to early reviews giving me flashbacks of Leonidas. But from seeing this? I'm sorry, but all hype and hope I had for this is non-existent now. Call me when Generation Toys gets to him.

    I really hope Generation Toys swoops in for this line. The hype is still there. Their Red Bull/Lambor has been really quiet.
    I want this, DX9. Sculpt is interesting. I just want QC worth the price too.
