    I got it from eBay My World - agabysscom The price is about $8-10 more then BBTS once you factor in shipping cost but he always seems to get stuff first!

    TRANSFORMATION UPDATE!

    I just discovered that Dirge has been mis-transformed in his pics! They updated the mold to allow the front wings to fold up! This change is undocumented but obviously intentional!

    Notice both ends are rounded

    Heres a pic of Botcon Dirge for comparison, see how only one side is angled.

    I was just post if anyone knew when some of these exclusives where going to start hitting the market. I knew Dirge was released but was wondering about Thrust and Mirage.

    Any issues with the figure? I know the last exclusives had issues with the arm holes. And loose limbs.

    He looks pretty nice dispite the wing stripes. My only complaint is that he has Starscream's launchers instead of Ramjet's. Well can't wait to get my 2 coneheads

    From Bohdar,

    "Hello,
    This is just a notification that all the orders have been fulfilled one day ahead of schedule, so you all should be receiving these in a few days. Also, just a word of warning about the seekers. The wings do not fold back in robot mode like they do with Henkei Ramjet (they kind of just stick out of the sides in bot mode). I already had one buyer snap off his wing and ask for a replacement. Unfortunately these are sold out and irreplaceable, so please pay attention to the instructions *before* transforming him.
    Ok that’s all I guess, and look for your package in the mail sometime this week!

    Best Regards,
    -B2K-"

    I just love that these are done up with "Classics" style paint jobs. you can mix and match all the seekers to get two full sets of unique seekers, with the exception of Thundercracker, of course.

    Just because I can I upped some comparison pics with Botcon Dirge!

    The plastic on these really feels good! I cant describe it but it feels better then the Botcon version.

    Oh yeah I should get my Thrust tomorrow!

    I actually like that better than the Botcon version BECAUSE of the wing stripes...

    Although I already own the Botcon Dirge, I'm picking up Henkei Dirge as well.

    I may very well end up doing some mixing and matching on the two but we'll see.

    If you have Classics Ramjet, how do his missles look for color with Dirge (not the whole launcher, just a missle swap)?

    The wings look really good on the Henkei version (really good), but I prefer the body colors of the BotCon version far more...

    I'm not a big fan of the alt mode, but he looks badass in bot mode for sure. Diggin the stripes. Too bad these boys are so expensive. After getting TC and SW, would be hard to splurge on these guys too.

    I think it's funny that this is nothing really new. heck I did this a year ago too with my custom commission. It's just a corner shaved off that part.

    I don't see any reason to piss in his corn flakes over it though. As an actual mold change and not a customization (unless I'm missing something), that is worth pointing out.

    Yes, but its actually incorporated into the mold now. Not to mention the overall effectiveness of it with the new wing mold. On top of that the fact that its been added to the mold but none of the stock Takara pics showcase it.
