    Got mine in today and I really, really like him. Had to do a bit of surgery to get him fully functional, though; one of the kneepads was stuck on some paint and wasn't pushed in all the way, which kept him from being able to fully transform into trailer mode. Fixing it was easy, but lining the ratchet joint and the weird, seemingly pointless spring in the middle of the leg made reassembly take the better part of twenty minutes.

    Update: it was not a pointless spring, it was the piece that made his ankle joint ratchet. Guess who had to open up and then re-assemble his Thunder Erebus leg again.

    It's not just you. The cab to trailer size ratio made me think of Exkaiser and King Roader when I first saw Thunder Erebus.

    I wish they had made the trailer hitch lock in place (edit: actually, they could've given both arms a piece that swings out with half of the hitch peg on each, so when they come out they form a whole peg.. that way once inserted into the cab they would be held together and the arms would be symmetrical, oh well), and the weight of the trailer is a bit too much for the back end of the cab, kinda presses it down a bit... but other than that holy shit this figure is beautiful.

    I found a base mode that I really like and he's basically a giagantic badass enemy in my legends scale collection. I have a hunch that he is going to look absolutely amazing next to Iron Factory's War Giant when they're both in combined mode.

    My PMOP style base mode for him!

    0.jpg 1.jpg 21015736_1710298408989022_7617434342697445953_o.jpg 21476012_10155871268899789_1239750166_n.jpg

    This is quite an amazing figure, I think maybe - technically - the best MT figure, although not necessarily my favourite.

    All the best

    Regardless of how Nucleon Quest PMOP didn't have the God Bomber armour, I would like Maketoys to offer it for Thunder Erebu. The main reason for this is that the super mode feet are built into the design, and otherwise he'll be left with vestigal, overcomplicated heels.

    I do prefer the Super Ginrai look over the God Ginrai look, but based on the cost difference between Thunder Erebus and Manus, it seems like a seperate Erebus-colours release of the armour wouldn't break the bank, and would give those God-exclusive parts of Thunder Erebus a real purpose.
