Any word on when that G-1 head is supposed to come out? Seems like it's been on preorder for a minute!
Damn thats a big box lol cant wait to receive mines from BBTS. Man its going to be a monster line up when these TW combiners start releasing and see them displayed!
wtf.. I just had a dream that I found the G-2 versions of these in toy-r-us and they were priced at $40 a pair. So random lol
I've just ordered the v2 of this guy and can't wait to have him in hand!
I would prefer the silver thighs though, I'm confused reading back last few pages. Is there somewhere to buy the original silver thighs (and other new parts) as a separate upgrade set?
It sounds like it's possible to buy the newer parts. If someone preferred the green thighs maybe we could do a swap deal with the ones I'll receive, or I could order a new set and swap them with you.
Just got my invoice from TCP.
It's so interesting that many V1 adopters, like me, prefer the green thighs, and many V2 adopters want the silver thighs. I've seen several similar posts concerning the head, too. I'll actually be keeping my original parts even though I have ordered all the upgrades, just in case I ever decide to sell it someday, I like to have all the parts, boxes, and accessories. I guess it goes to show that Toyworld really has done a great job meeting lots of varying preferences. If only they'd send me the difference in what I paid for the V1 and the V2 gift set... Regardless, no regrets. V1 Constructor is awesome. I'm happy for those who missed out that V2 is being made.
It's common business sense though to fix issues and (re-)release a "superior" version of your product. No one who bought PS4s were compensated when we went out and bought PS4 Pro's.
However, this does teach me a lesson on TW products - much like I learned with KFC/XTB products - will definitely wait and see the next time(s) as these figures nowadays are never really in danger of selling out.
They 3rd partied Toys R Us as well.
Well, if you actually wanted a v1 for the silver thighs and funky head, those have seemingly sold out.
Why? So we can pay $1200 for a constructor?
Just paid for mine at TCP hopefully it ships out soon
Is anyone else having trouble transforming concrete into truck mode?
For some reason when I bring the arms together I cant get the attached wheels to sit properly. There is a tab, but it seems too big to fit - does the gap in the grey connector go onto that? Seems too tight a fit and its at an angle too. Will try and get a photo to help explain
try watching some vids. Emgo or bobby, there may be something you are missing that we can't see
TCP charged me for the set so hoping it's in tomorrow
I have watched all the ones I could find, unfortunately they do the transformation from truck to bot so I cant make out the details
If the grey slot and green tab is in different angle, then you should turn the grey part 180degree. It will tab nicely and same angle.
Finally got it, just needed brute force. Thanks
Can't wait to get the V2 in my grubby hands, but in the meantime found this behemoth on Daim's FB page.
MP fort max or metroplex could be done at that scale
