    Yea, hopefully, though I find it takes him a week more than Netclow to ship my stuff, can't wait to finally get an mp blast off... wow, it is really close now.

    Thank you! :drool: 

    The ratchets for the combined mode are not well designed, they lack more attaching points to the leg structure to withstand the force of the spring. The waist ratchet is truly a mess . Other than that the figure is great! Perhaps if the spring is cut a bit, the ratchets will last without compromising the stability of the gestalt.

    Zeta is not toy accurate, unless completely different alt modes on Vortex and Swindle along with them not much resembling G1 toy bot modes is toy accurate? Though they DID give swindle a nice reversible toon lookish chest/waist option. :D

    MMC's is mostly drawings, so it's hard to say for sure. Vortex is the only one I recall seeing a prototype for, but he did look very cartoon accurate, assuming he's mostly great and they don't give him the toy's purple torso.

    Unique Toys' is leaning toward cartoon accuracy, but if you compare them to the animation models you can definitely find discrepencies.

    Zeta's is accurate to neither toy, toon, OX, or whatever. The alt modes were half pulled out of their asses, and their robots are a mess of chunky limbs and folded panels. Literally the only two things they have going for them are size and price.

    Made a correction.
    Also, for the vehicle modes, Onslaught is more cartoon accurate, while UT’s is awkwardly more toy accurate. For cartoon accuracy, I think it’s best if you pick Zeta Onslaught, UT Swindle, UT Brawl, MMC Vortex, and MMC Blastoff just to match vortex. To combine them, you can get Tigerblade’s add-on for the legs when he releases them and hope he does the same for the arms. IMO, if you don’t care about accuracy, the Zeta alt modes are much better than UT’s in cleanliness, but Swindle and Vortex are not accurate. Also, buying UT Onslaught is kinda a gamble. Some have perfectly fine ratchets, while people like me have the abdomen piece and both leg ratchets broken after ~10 transformations. Mine might have been extremely bad though. Well, here’s my :2c:
