    Keep at it!! You'll get there eventually! Not sure if I'll be able to get one. Put an order in, but I think I was too late. But I would LOVE to get this kit!!! It looks VERY nice!

    Better to make sure you put out something of quality and make a good name for yourself than to put out something crappy.

    Just keep plugging away. The fans can wait. You really made this piece go from a somewhat regretful buy to something amazing. That head sculpt is awesome. I just hope you have enough to go around for everyone. As impatient as we get, the fandom can wait for a quality product.

    Camera is out of commission right now but, overall the set is just how Nato describes it, the quality is amazing. The Plastic color is near a dead match a tad shade lighter. Everything connects snuggly no looseness at all. The Helmet is just pure win no need for glue but I did anyways.

    Sweet. Thanks. I know there are pics on his website and all but more wouldn't hurt. But more particularly I wanted to know the quality from a third person, unbiased point of view. Thanks. So no Anemis type kitbashing skills needed for the conversion? Exaggerating I know, but it's pretty user friendly that a caveman can do it?

    Yeah, I put an order in anyway a few weeks ago. Was just wondering if I might still have a chance of actually getting it. Cos it looks amazing from what I've seen.

    Color is pretty much perfect, Nate did a superb job matching it.

    The head isn't a total swap, you reuse the front face from RB and build around it. Real easy to do, I might add some glue to hold it in place better.

    Turn the head all the way around to close the vehicle mode.

    Actually turning it to one side or the other is the best way to get it closed.

    On that note however, mine never shut all the way with the HS head.
