    UPDATED w/ transformation pics (PIC HEAVY!)

    I've been excited about these ever since they were announced almost a year ago. I just got back from picking these up from robotkingdom.com in Hong Kong. No transformation pics since it's getting quite late but I'll try to get around to it this week or so. I also posted the same pics in my collection thread - I hope that's alright.

    UPDATE 8/12/2011:

    Finally got around to transforming these. I'm not going to do a full review here, maybe will do one in the Feedback thread eventually. In short, YES there are QC issues, loose pieces out of the box -> component between arm and leg joint (not broken, just needs to be snapped back on but clearly you can tell they're meant to be glued on). Right shoulder intake (those columns beside the heads) were tight on 2/3 of them. Took a bit more pressure than I'd like to pivot them downward and caused stress marks on the plastic at the joint. Transform these GENTLY the first time, treat these like models and you'll be alright. Lastly, you'll notice I switched the missiles between Dirge and Ramjet - IMHO the bigger fatter missiles were meant to be on Ramjet. Feel free to ask any questions and I'll respond as soon as I can. Enjoy:

    They look pretty damn sweet. PLease keep us all posted. I wasn't planning on getting these guys (as good as they look, over $100 per figure is just over my threshold), but I am succumbing to my addiction, and depending on how good they look in all modes, I might just give in.

    Ever since I got Ramjet I've wanted the rest really bad - I can't sell stuff fast enough to pay for it :D . Looking forward to better pics once people get these in.

    When you say picked them up, you mean shipped or does RK actually have a store front? If so damn that's sweet! I'm just waiting ever so anxious on TFSource to ship my set of 3!

    Edit: on a side note is the porn site virus free?

    No, RobotKingdom doe not have a store front but they are willing to meet up along the subway stations in HK for in person pick-up.

    Sorry about that, got lazy to type out the whole name not knowing that it would lead people to a pr0n site :tongue:  I've changed it on my first post.

    Seriously, if these are available, why no word about it from iGear? I ordered from them months and months ago and they are what, like 4 months late releasing these and they can't let their customers know the product is finally available.

    I am mostly pissy because I want to complete this collection so bad. The figures look great and make an excellent addition to my collection. They need to hurry up and get here already.

    Thanks for the box opening pics OP.

    It might be a few more weeks before these start showing up on US shores. Robotkingdom just got them in stock 2 days ago in Hong Kong and they were shipped out of the factory from China.

    I pre-ordered the set of 3 from RK on April 1 (april fools on me, apparently) and upon asking them for an update yesterday they told me that "ramjet" was out of stock, which tells me that they were happy to take my money up front but ignored or made some other mistake with the order. Anyone else have this problem with them?

    EDIT. RK refunded me, no questions asked.

    That sucks, I'm sorry to hear that. I pre-ordered the set of 3 when they first posted it back in Nov 2010 and have purchased exclusively from them since last July and never had any issues. I know that Ramjet came in stock first (maybe a few weeks ago) and they've been trying keep it in stock since but it keeps selling out. They should give you a full refund. I hope it works out for you.
