    got this figure a few days ago n just realised there seems to be no feedback thread, so here goes - if there is one, please merge :)

    firstly, i gotta say i love this figure.. its got an awesome clear look to it, and the quality is really good.. tight joints (a bit too tight, some times :lol ), and everything snaps together well, the shoulder cannons fit snugly to the shoulder pegs, and to the airplane wing pegs.. this is my first clear figure - unless u count stealth lockdown - and the clear plastic used on this is (obviously) much better quality and looks so much better.. as u can see, i love it :D  so here are the photos:

    wow awesome pics, on the fence on this one, the chrome is really out of place here and keeping this thing from being a must buy

    BTW you didnt fold in his landing gears or fold up the leg wings

    Beautiful looking figure.

    A bit disappointed Takara still felt the need/found a way to shoehorn chrome onto this one though.

    I am really pleased with version of SS. I have the 2.0 one and think this would go well with him. Hopefully I can pick this guy up down the line.

    Bah, this guy dropped into my Pile of Loot a day after I shipped.

    Probably won't have him in hand for a few months, but looking forward to it.

    I got him a few days ago and I really really like him. The solid grey parts don't bother me and they fit well in alt mode as you can see them THROUGH the clear parts. The chrome guns don't bother me much because his thrusters, front landing gears, and face are bronzed and his shoulders and kneecaps have a metallic paint also. My front cockpit is a little loose but I should be able to glue that down.

    I got mine yesterday from BBTS and having all the seeker molds already, I still think this is an absolutely outstanding figure.

    Joints are real tight on mine, even though the mold has been used a thousand times there are relatively no problems.

    Makes me wish I had bought Crystal Convoy now, its that impressive.

    From my understanding there are multiples of the molds hence minimal mold degradation.

    I have two coming in the mail tomorrow from BBTS!

    Got both of mine today too! The UPS guy came early today. I picked the best one to keep in the box for storage since this is one of my favorite figures.

    This figure seems much more popular than the Electro Disrupter Mirage. My supplier said it was sold out....whereas I could order some of the Mirage without the book/coupons.
