    FINALLY got this in today. I'm at work so no pics or attachment yet, but I can comment on the quality - it's absolutely perfect. Joints are all tight, molding is crisp, paint apps are perfect, plastic feels solid and hefty. Anybody who is worried about the quality can rest, it's right up there with FP stuff.

    The entire back of the heads are clear red plastic, so the light piping is phenomenal. That may bug some but I'd rather have it this way than have batteries to replace. Heads are ball jointed near the back so he can look straight up if need be.

    The hip joints ratchet outwards, but no ratcheting forward and back. They seem solid enough to hold any pose, though. It has thigh swivels, elbows/elbow swivels, thumbs swivel, fingers all all one piece but the fists can open, wrists swivel. All joints are tight but not so tight that you feel like you'll break anything. Comes with a green and purple barrel for Mixmaster, not sure why they included a green one.


    EDIT: Got my kit on the G1. Everything fits like it should. The connection between Hook and Long Haul is a little loose, but that's nothing some nail polish can't fix.
    All other connections are tight. No idea what that means for the reissue or KO.

    The color matching is near perfect, much better than the CD hips I have. Unfortunately he still has the same falling backwards issue the CD hips give him, he REALLY needs some heels.

    Awesome. All I need to know is how it works on the original G1 figures, I got tired of reading through all the preview speculation just to get an answer to that.

    Awesome! Can't wait to see pics of yours man. Meanwhile I'm going to place an order for it. $38.99 w/ free shipping is not bad at all.

    EDIT: Ordered it on Ebay!! Also have one on preorder at BBTS since I have 2 G1 Devastators

    I wonder if those heel spurs are included? That's the exact same pic I saw a couple of days ago that had the heel spurs on... that gives him stability..

    Just bought based on your recommendation. Cheep enough, being under $40 shipped I guess I can't go wrong.

    The heel pieces are not included and was made by the reviewer.

    No heels included, sadly. Those pics make me want to fabricate some though.

    That explains why they look so bad/out of place.

    mmm.. yeah it's unfortunate it doesn't come with some heels for stability. Overall those pics from that site that process linked look fantastic, I sure can't wait to get mines now.. glad I have another one on preorder.

    I'm so happy to hear the quality of this is good! I cancelled my order on the XP set a few weeks ago and ordered this instead. Got it sitting in my POL waiting on some other stuff, but I cant wait to get it now!!!

    Yeah that head is one of the best I've seen made by a 3rd party. I never felt Crazy Devy's or even XP's were accurate in cartoon.. This is one very spot on.. man I can't wait.

    I'll try to get some pics but there's not much I can show you that hasn't been seen.

    Dayumm...the head sculpt is perfect. I thought I was done with Devastator after Hercules, but this looks too damn good. Ordering.
