    I know that Graviter has the screaming face, but from that angle, it looks like he's frowning after someone farted or something.

    Yes those guns are just a tad overdone. It's like they took the FT and dialed it up 1000 times. LOLF. Oh well, it is what is. I know Graviter's gun is almost as big as Phoenix's weapon and it weighs even more by a few ounces.

    Mine just arrived from @rubadubspawn . Freaking love this guy. Quick check and no broken parts out of the box, not missing finger joints and the wrists seems fine. Could be a touch tighter but it's all good. Just picking him up he just oozes destructive power. Yup so glad I went with GP for my MP Dinobots. Freaking want to get a Reximus now just to get 4 dinos ...

    When did you order and how long did it take to arrive?

    Yesterday I got a package from TCP that contained Grassor, my first Gigapower purchase ever. I've looked at many pictures, watched lots of reviews. I knew these are larger than the Fans Toys Dibots. But getting this thing in-hand is when I realized just how big. These things are going to be massive. Grassor doesn't even fit on my bookcase shelf!!! He's about 3/4" too tall. Holy supersize dino, Batman!!!!! :eek:  Grassor is impressive, imposing, beautifully painted in a rich red metallic/chrome with a rich shade of grade for arms and legs. I don't know where I'm going to put the damn thing, but I do so want to display it for anyone who hangs out in my collection room to see it in all it's awesome glory! And with Graviter on the way, who seems to be even slightly larger, and just as mind-blowing, these things may just become the center pieces of my collection. I'm going to have to rethink my whole layout now. Given how nice Grassor is, Graviter is going to have quite a presence!

    I still love my FT Dibots. They're excellent and are real keepers. But no offense to FT fans, the Gigasaurs are a step up IMHO. One advantage that the FT Dibots have is that they DO fit in my bookcase shelves, just barely. lol.

    I'm going to build a custom acrylic case so I can fit the 5 gigasaurs either in bot mode or dino mode. These guys deserve no dust and should be displayed in all their glory!

    Congrats!! I agree that the dibots are still awesome in their own way and they still have a special place in my personal space. I will say that while the GP versions are a step up in size I still give kudos to FT for making their hands and fingers super tight to last for a long time versus GP which missed the mark on this. My opinion.

    Metallic Guttur doesn't have hip issues if you retrofit the new design hip replacements that come with Metallic Grassor. Rock solid.

    Yeah....but you need to take the figure apart to do that, and my left hand would never allow me to do something like that. It gives me enough trouble transforming anything more complex than a Legends figure as it is. :lol

    When?!?! WHEN?!?!?!

    Agree with Destron. The hip issues weren't widespread. Mine was a day 1 copy and had no hip problems. I upgraded anyway by asking giga for new hips, then upgraded once more when metallic grassor included the new hip assembly.

    Really if you were in with the metallic versions from the get go... you'd be taken care of from an accessory and upgrade standpoint.

    Damn, mine shipped on the 20th and still shows "in transit" from Beijing. Tired of being told that it's normal to take that long when everyone else he's shipped to has gotten theirs.

    It's not him at that point. It's your postal service.....or customs. I hate customs.

    I know it's out of his control. Did yours ever actually show in customs or did it just show up?

    I’m guessing you’re in the 905 area code. Mine hit Vancouver customs for 1day. That’s acceptable turnaround time. Then CanPost Richmond and no movement on tracking for over a week. Then bam. Delivered yesterday.
