    Oooh the heels! Too bad I already bought a set for a few dollars from shapeways. Did you know you no longer have to buy 25 minimum? You can just order 1 set of heels from shapeways?

    OH!

    I'll bet those new plastic parts are heel spurs.

    They look about the right size/shape, and a lack of heels is one of the toy's few flaws- as a result it's harder to pose dynamically.

    Can't read chinese. How do you know...

    ... they are ripping it off instead of collaborating
    ... if heel designs are that remarkably difference
    ... the price is not the same and the sword is not a bonus

    Wow, wtf?

    They stole Process's heels, I think someone else made those sword designs before, that turns into helicopter blades or something. Reprolabel varietino of the stickers.

    I can read Chinese. If Cheem have other information, he can post and I can translate. However, all the posts after that simply says they want the sticker, or the heel pieces, etc.

    lol xD But yeah, I am not too fond of this because

    1. I have the swordsd already. I forgot whose store it was from, but I got 2 MASSIVE blades on Defender, and they look great on him.

    2. I already have Process's amazing heel spurrs. They work so perfectly already.

    3. If I want more stickers, I can always use reprolabel. So unless they do something vastly diff, they won't be impressing on me.

    hey, not gonna lie. 3 bucks to make Defender posable and solve pretty much his only issue, is amazing.

    If I could find a Defender under £50.00 I might actually buy one.
