    Just got mine. Realized that you can make a bow using two blades and the middle round piece. He's poseable enough to make a reasonably good drawing stance, too.

    Also noticed someone got a sword out of him. :thumbs2:

    Yeah, when I first opened him and played around with him I discovered the "sword" configuration as well, and it's pretty cool. You can also shorten it into a dagger.

    Can't wait to play around with the accessories on the other two guys. Almost wish they came with extras so all three of them could be decked out with ninja weapons.

    OK, I went ahead and pulled the trigger on this bad-boy in the hopes that the rumble619 upgrade kit will be available soon. My only gripe is the face and the upgrade kit will hopefully solve this problem.

    This is the first I've heard of an upgrade kit, are there any pics? Man its pretty crazy that we get upgrade kits for third party items, then probably some reprolabels too.

    There is one thing that I don't really like about Thundershred: his hand peg holes are not 5mm. It makes it much less compartible if you wanna arm him.

    Anyone figure what kinda armaments he can hold aside from his own?

    Someone in the clear pictures thread got him to hold Drift's smaller swords. And he can have any 3mm clip weapon on his arm.

    Realized that, really, the only thing that makes Thundershred look like a vehicle is that orange cockpit. If it weren't painted, or if it were stickered over, the alt mode would look much more bug-like. I might have to cut out a black sticker for it.

    Some G1 weapons fit well: G1 Kup's and G1 Gnaw's are the ones I tried. I assume any of the toys that used the smaller pegs (Cyclonus did, too, I think) would work.

    The fist holes are also the correct size for TFTM Jazz' gun and TFTM Landmine/Comettor's grenade launcher, but the finger arrangement means he can only hold those weapons off-center, unless modifications are made.

    I just found out both of the hands of my CA03 cannot rotate, not dare to push any more force in fear of breakage.

    Are they supposed to be rotatable?

    Thanks. that explains a lot.

    And it makes the arm movement even less.

    Just check my 2 sets of CA03, not broken or stressmark on the Blades or any QC issues. THanks GOD as I am known as having bad luck in getting QC toys all the time!

    Has anybody left the cockpit underneath on Insect mode and have his robot head face down. Kind of looks like the top of G1 Shranels insect head. I cant stand that cockpit.

    I'm a little tardy to this party too, considering this is also my 1st FansProject purchase!

    I'm very happy with him. Everything seems to work just fine, I haven't broken any of his insanity arm knives yet, his joints are tight, but not too tight, and his bug mode is a neat little package. Really cool how the arms store inside the legs.

    I love the head sculpt and the colors, plus the plastic feels nice and durable.

    I guess the biggest thing for me is the desire to own the next two! Maybe even go for warcry and flame blast!
