    Comes with his gun of course, a clear blue eye piece, an extra chest piece and the top of a stand.

    No stand. Just the top part that was seen before. My guess is for one of their own stands.

    Yeah the screw holes can stand our especially since the white is so very very white. Dont think it will bother me. It is a toy after all.

    TCP rocks. Its also good of them to let people know that they are getting partial shipment monday and shipping throughout the week so people don't get on the boards wonder why some have shipped and why some haven't. If I get a notice next week I'll be happy.

    Not anymore.....sold out. I'm gonna wait and see what deals ebay or taobao has on it.
    This. I was amazed at how small the box was for my clear and toy colored Quakewaves. They stand about the height of MP Soundwave or MP11 Starscream and we all know how obnoxiously big for no reason those Takara boxes are.

    This will be FT's best seller ever, I think.

    I'd say get it now, it will be hard to find. Do you all think this has any "repaint" potential? X version????

    This figure rocks, FINALLY a proper Skyfire. It only took 30 years.

    At TCP or CP? Captured Prey was sold out the other day. I doubt one would have opened up since you have to pay upfront with CP. Would seem odd someone cancel and get refunded right as it was about to ship when it's already paid for.

    Are there any other red painted parts or are they molded plastic red. I suspect the metallic was the only way to assure it would match or in this case not have to match with the red plastic.

    It's a little disappointing to hear that it doesn't come with he full stand.

    Shared by most of us. I'm at a loss why FT would think it's okay to not include a complete flight stand. If they can include an adapter to fit a flight stand, then perhaps it should have included a full flight stand?

    Yeah. I get it from a business standpoint (cuts costs, reduces packaging requirements, etc. which should ultimately lend itself to lower retail price) but I don't have, and don't intend to have (for the time being) soar or sovereign. The hell am I going to do with an adapter to a stand that only comes with figures I choose not to buy?

    Perfect opportunity for a 4th party to get some stands going. Maybe one that can support both FT10 and MP11 in some chasing scene or whatever...

    Do you think you or @jream can whip up a custom stand to sell? You guys are geniuses when it comes to that stuff.

    I know blue text and all, but I would honestly think this is not a joke but a reality. That way people that don't have a spare stand from sovereign or whatnot can make the choice if they want to dump $20 into a stand for phoenix, and the people that don't want to pay $240 for a phoenix with the stand aren't obligated to.
