    Welp both of mine should be here later on today. I can't wait. too bad Koot is sold out all over the place. was really hoping to finally get him too.

    meh.

    I really wish FansToys would release their Blur. Not really sure what the hold up is. Was he more or less ready for release yet?

    He was only announced 3 months ago... With FT it's typically a year or more from announcement to release

    Received my Rouge yesterday and i'm surprisingly very happy! Everything feels pretty solid with no loose joints etc. Transformed her to vehicle mode and back with little problems, transformation was a little more complex then normal but nothing too strenuous. She is a little hard to stand but I find a few little bits of blu-tac on her feet do the trick! [​IMG][​IMG]

    Damn, looks like I am not the only one to have ordered two, so many other fans too. Still haven't opened up my second one yet.

    Got mine from Bababobo yesterday. Straight from the box Rouge looks good, liked it better when I pulled her hips out slightly. Hip to leg proportions seems to flow abit nicer imo. Seems to pose okay, no worse than normal action figures with small feet.

    Chest gap and hands- enuff said already. Wing pods are currently stiff but the way they just hang there I don’t expect that to last long. The back cover fix works but then the back becomes exposed and unsightly. Maybe a clip on bar there would be best. Off to the 3D printer!

    Best looking Arcee so far , blows Alcee out of the water, but still doesn’t feel like a definitive Arcee.

    Great shot!

    Out of curiosity, how do you make the left hand rest on the gun? Did you swap it with the one without pegs?

    I really don't get the issues with getting her to stand. I put her in my display and she is better balanced than a lot of my figmas. You guys need to take an action figure balancing course - I'm sure there is a college out there that offers it ;)

    TT would never show her such disrespect.

    Er, never mind.

    Actually that reminds me, I need an apron and breakfast-for-the-boys upgrade set :p

    I see people complain about Rouge can't stand easily, I wonder how is TW's version doing? Any TW owner can share?
    After all, Arcee can't have big feet like combiners, she can only have high heels like a lady, not slippers.


    Also why not use action figure support stand for this? They are very cheap and easy to use.

    She has the profile of a carrot and carries a lot of die cast metal up high, in addition to a large double back pack that extends past her center of mass.

    Mystery solved.


    The funny thing is, she doesn’t really have high heels at all. My old motorcycle boots had more heel on them. If her heels were just a millimeter taller and she had a fraction more forward movement to her ankles we’d be able to shift her weight more to her front.

    As for stands, I only use them for action poses. A figure should be able to do a basic stance on its own. They also take up too much space and make my already cluttered display that much more messy looking.

    um..... stands and museum wax are too obvious of a simple fix. Here at TFW we expect our masterpieces to be perfect out of the box, able to stand up on its own, cook a proper 3 course meal, and give us a reason for living.

    So yeah just gonna say it now.

    Seeing it in person and messing with it in my hands, Rouge is actually pretty cool. BUT....

    I frikkin hate that curved chest plate. it looks stupid.

    Hey, just speaking my thoughts. :p
