    I got it arrived yesterday.
    I'm very disappointed due to his face and loose joints.
    As you see in the picture,well, he isn't smiling but he has a big mouth.
    And joints of missile launchers are very loose. I have to add some stuff to the hole at both shoulders.

    What the hell happened to the head? It looks like he got blasted in the face or something. And that gun is way thin. Loose missile launchers? What a travesty.

    I'd be pissed.

    EDIT: Ahh wait.. the head on the bottom pic is not the one you got in this kit now that I look a bit closer. Not pissed, just disappointed now.

    EDIT2: O wait a damn second, that melted face IS the one you got in the Kit.... WTF?!

    OK that head needs some paint apps at least. Rilfle & launchers don't look half bad though.

    The head looks like it's made out of plasticine, he's got a Chelsea grin like the Joker!

    The head looks terrible - the face looks melted and the color of the helmet is way off. The rifle looks good thought.

    That's is terrible! They should be embarrassed to have even sent something like that out!

    EDIT: Going back and looking at the "prototype", there were at least paint apps on the two antenna. What did they do?

    EDIT (again): People are buying these for upwards of $70 on eBay right now. What an absolute rip-off. Looking at old pictures of the production run of 50, it seems as though there has been significant (to say it lightly) mould degradation. They really shouldn't have sent these out at all as they'll never be able to make anything that will sell for SGCollect again. I mean, who would trust them? (I'm saying this as someone who bought this set; one for me and another board member.)

    Yeah, I liked the prototype's head so much over the FP one. I would've bought this kit had I even owned the CC Trailer. But that... I hope you just happened to get a one-off mishap (that you should have replaced or refunded for), and that the rest don't look like that.

    They should have saved on packaging & instructions(do people really need instructions for this?) to just focus on bettering the head.

    That is the biggest pile of crap I've seen this year & what makes it worse, is the fact that it's suppose to make the coolest thing of last year "better".
    Can you exchange that for a G1 Wheelie ??? I think you would get more enjoyment out of it.

    I'm still entirely bemused about this item. How could someone make this and then feel confident enough to send it out? If it were free, I'd say "nice try" or "good effort" or something. However, charging people for this thing is ridiculous.

    This is some SERIOUS false advertising.

    How insulting is this for FP? If I were them I'd be pissed... LOL I'm not them and I'm pissed.

    Like you said mineraljane, how could someone feel ok to send this out? Its just fucked up.

    I had an invoice for this set and he lowerd the price twice and I passed on it. I am very very happy that I did that now. Thats just really dissapointing.
