    It has been a while since my last review, when I decide to write a review about this set, many others hv made great reviews/video
    Therefore I would better skip the review section and share some additional play mode of this set instead

    The first thing is the light saber mode of Bulldozer, I tried to plug Light saber parts (from HG gundam model) into the "handle" part of bulldozer, and it is pretty fit, and it works exactly like gundam's light saber.
    I wonder if there will be any extra laser parts in later release?

    The next mode is the giant arms mode! It works in both Bulldozer and Excavator!

    The drill part I used comes from Bandai LBX model series

    Finally I want to share a transformation tips of bulldozer, there are interference problems of flipping the lower body over if you follow the instruction
    To make it easier to tranform

    1) flip the whole "Giant's upper arm part" down
    2) rotate the lower half 90 degree
    3) flip the lower body over for 90 degree, there shouldn't be any interference

    The key point is to rotate the entire lower body 90 degree

    Too bad I not good at making video, I hope the pictures help!

    FFFFFFFFFF.

    I don't know how long I can go before picking these yellow guys up over the green version...awesome pictures. The attitude and posablilty alone are exactly the reasons why I picked these guys over Herc. So much more play value.

    Just do it, man :)  . Plus, if this truly is a limited run, and there aren't any major QC issues, it shouldn't be too hard to sell if you don't like it in hand.

    :lol  I know what you mean. Do what I do: keep telling yourself that green will be out in April, which just happens to be the same time the yellow set finishes.

    Giant keeps looking better and better. Just when you thought this guy couldn't get any cooler, more pictures come along showing you just how wrong you were:p 

    I only hope articulation seen so far extends to Giant as well. It would be a shame to see all of it disappear with a simple combination, though earlier pics of Giant give me hope that these Giant will be at least half as cool as these guys if not 100% as cool with his dynamic poses.
