    Jeez, y'all are getting me even more excited for mine to arrive now! Almost wish I had just paid the extra on shipping to get him here sooner than the 9th X___X

    Also huh, I wasn't planning on changing the eye color on mine since it doesn't bother me, but since the head isn't glued together, I might actually try it? Still undecided, but it's nice that if I do go that route, it'll be a lot easier than it used to be. Now I just need to track down a ko mp ratbat or something.

    Got mine in the other day - Asia version + got the metal mini cassette mode free gift, which was unexpected (my pre-order didn't mention it came with the gift).

    He is...good.

    Seems a bit back heavy when posing (no heel spurs to help) and the hip joints \ ratchets are a strange setup - the ball joints don't move at all so he kind of looks weird as his legs bend at the top. Otherwise, all ok -feels about as good as KFC's Blaster does :)

    Just finished painting mine. Clear red over chrome silver paint to create a similar effect to the clear red eye piece.
    First time trying something like this and I'm quite pleased with the result :)

    Oh hey.... Those hip balls actually can be rotated so they move the way you want... You can even unpeg the crotch plate from the back to allow more freedom of movement... Just have to be careful to rotate them back before you transform lest you inadvertantly apply pressure to them laterally while trying to transform him.

    Tolerances on my figure are kind of all over the place. I'm just glad he has a very nice shelf presence

    Check your tracking--mine originally gave 1/9 as the delivery estimate, but it's been changed twice sine then. First to the 7th and then to the 6th, i.e. tomorrow, which is perfect because that's when my nonnref replacement eyes are on track to be delivered. Stoked!

    TFSource now says April arrival. Does that include preorders? Very strange to instantly jump 3 months. Maybe I am just impatient and excited. Cheers to those receiving yours though!

    At least the Takara cassette sets are re-released then, which I both have on pre-order. I do not know by heart if Takara is re-releasing Soundwave too. I personally prefer the Takara version of Soundwave over the Hasbro version; the eyes first of all, but second the feet.

    Nice! Sadly I checked mine and I'm still on track for Monday. At least Monday is pretty close now, plus I have Monday off of work so I can spend the day basking in all of Soundwave's masterpiecey glory!
