    Finally got a chance to fiddle with my Prospect from the Kickstarter pledge, and noticed that he has two right hips:

    I'm assuming "right" because of the photos on the back of the package:

    I went back a bunch of pages but gave up searching: is this a common issue, and/or does someone have a Prospect with two left hips?

    This wouldn't be an issue for me, and I wouldn't have even noticed, BUT the legs don't sit evenly in "chest mode" because of this problem.

    Which reminds me, I need to send their site an email with my own list of defective pieces.

    Thanks for the response, any support is of course appreciated. My post was not really aimed directly at you but just to give an overall knowledge to everyone. There has been a lot of questions about buying Otomo on it's own and one person even getting quite angry about it. Just thought it would be a good idea to share why Otomo will never be easy to get.

    The hands are done in such a way that they are like a 5mm hole but the Unrustables's weapons are really designed to fit in the hands with a tab keeping them in place. That said, the weapon handles are a 5mm size and are compatible with just about anything that has a 5mm hole. The smaller prospect weapons are a 3mm peg and so also can be used in that regard.

    Thought I would try a little mix and match with the rider as well. I don't think it looks as good as with the light grey bits in the rider like what @Skrunklemin did but the Cholla head makes him look like he has bike goggles on which is kinda cool.

    The team has been pretty great at responding to issues, on a project this size they are unavoidable, but our aftercare is pretty damn good!

    I like it. I need a sweater or a cut or something (nudge nudge) to put both a regular patch and my 850 patch.

    Thanks for these pics @Spence!

    So you mention how the grays on the white prospect (lighter) and black prospect (darker) differ. How about the gray that the arsenal assortment? Is it a third shade of grey?

    I’m just trying to decide which prospect to buy or if I’m gonna need to buy both, plus the weapons pack.

    The grey in weapon pack matches the grey on the prospect so the chest panels on the weapon pack are the same grey that is used for the prospect and for the MM01. Only difference is all the weapons in the weapons pack come with their paint applications.

    Weapons like what come with the Spector Rogue or the Otomo are also included in the weapons pack but are done in the same grey as the MM01 so you can match weapons with that.

    Hope that helps.

    If I were to order the weapons pack is there any way to stack them with my Prot preorder so they ship together to save on shipping?

    A belated thanks to member madpanda for helping me secure an Otomo. It really is a great figure.

    So basically you guys dont get any notices on when it your order ships nor a tracking number when you order direct from mayhem mekanics? It just appears at your door? Lol how long though?

    Am I correct in assuming that the grey on the white prospect is a lighter shade than the grey on the black prospect? Or are the the same?

    If I removed all of the white bits and all of the black bits and combined all of the grey parts, would it be just a solid grey prospect? Or would there be some subtle differences like the shades of red on Otomo?

    Wound up sacrificing a bastard to swap parts on Otomo but it was totally worth it. With the extra touches of black this guy really comes to life. The swords help too, of course.

    When did you place your order? I placed one almost 2 weeks ago, so I’m curious about their turnaround.
