    Hey, I was just informed that all the stock shipped out to retailers is all there is right now, more are being manufactured, so there will be more after this initial shipment.

    Personally I like XTB's scale, or even bigger. Might not be true to the "minibot" scale but IMO it looks better in the alt mode lineup.

    I bought some KFC articulated hands for various masterpiece figures between spring and fall of last year with no issues. I haven't used him lately How is your transaction going so far?

    He's on the good sellers list here:
    China Ebay Seller Check
    The list is updated regularly thanks to input from members.

    Btw, I couldn't figure out how to switch the eyes when I was messing with it. The very top of the head didn't seem easy to rotate, if that's how it's done.

    Yes, hold the sides of the head and rotate the top piece. Mine is little a tight as well.

    The video review helped with the eyes switching gimmick. Basically just hook your nail into the grooves on top of his head and spin his helmet and his eyes will move. It's tight but it works. Keep someone out there from tearing his head up with a pair of pliers or something :p

    I'm really happy with this guy. Solid and cute as only Cosmos could pull off. I don't see a need for me to get the X-trans one. YMMV

    Great review, looks like a very solid figure and quality also looks top notch. The only flaw I see the reviewer mention was behind the feet the flaps dont peg in to stay in place. Very nice figure well done TW.

    Aaaaaarrrrggghhhhh....I've been very vocal about waiting for the XTB Cosmos since he will most likely be closer to the toon. But this thing is really cute and I'm a TF whore that can't live without a Cosmos any longer. I'm finally seeing the end of the road and want to finish my MP collection...so I placed my order. If the bottle cap head of this guy grows on me, then I might keep him and won't need another crappy XTB minibot. I almost hope so.... But right now I'm feeling dirty. This damn addiction!
