    No worries. Before commenting I had just watched Ben's clarifying video where he was frustrated with people saying he was lying abiut Ditka, so that 'again' in the pic above triggered a similar reaction from me. Thought i had missed something regarding YM.

    Just being honest here, but I immediately lose about 50% trust when I see that as the reporting source.

    And the Dirge issue was user-fixable. Shave a little sprue-like nub inside the joint and it's fine. That's not the same thing as plastic allegedly crumbling. I'm concerned but mine should be in hand by the end of the week so I'll get an idea how the plastic feels first-hand. If it's garbage, I'll pick up a re-issue MP-11 SS and call it a day. I hope it isn't though, as the YM seekers have been pretty great up to this point.

    I used to think that way too but he's been pretty reliable and on point with his posts lately. Besides Bots & Bits also reported the same thing.

    Guess I'll just wait for some reputable reviewers/people on this board to get this guy in hand. Not gonna back off because of some posts that may or may not have been made by someone with an axe to grind with YM... But I'm not gonna blindly buy something with no proper reviews.

    While I agree in theory... mine is already on the way. Was waiting on final colors to pull the trigger and wasn't expecting any explosions. I'm now a bit apprehensive.

    Not sure and not sure why YM would lower their standard after SW, TC and coneheads releases. They were excellent figures overall. Something smells fishy..............

    YM have said an accessory pack like Robot Heroes is "Possible" so who knows. We might end up with 6 new heads :)

    In the interest of clarity, I got that info from Wang Pen. But the exploded wing photo came from a Baidu message board.

    Isn't it true you can just walk outside and find these littered all over the world? I found one under my couch the other night.

    Better break out the velvet kiddy gloves. I was talking to a friend about how I wanted to dump my KBB for this YM and he told me another friend who has one in hand said the plastic did not feel strong like the YM Coneheads.

    Yeah, a bit of "he tell me" going on but better to be careful handling this guy, at least initially.

    I'm glad I bought screamer when I did. Smartlulup no longer has free shipping.

    And here I was worried that the clear plastic one would be the fragile bonus-crumbling-feature version. [​IMG]

    :p :D  By some people's logic, we're all good: our first look at YM-07 was a transformation video and it was fine, so there's absolutely no reason to worry about any of them. Our first look at YM-03 is a pile of broken shit, so we must worry about all of them.
