    I was thinking the same thing. XTB is connected to KFC.

    LOL. Now we know how XTB "coats" their product to give it a truly finger licking good experience.

    I don't mind workers eating or snacking on the production floor but at least have them use a fork or have some handy wipes.

    Wanted to post an image of KFC Wet Wipe....

    So, consensus on alt-mode paint apps?

    Well, looks that is quite an easy and effective fix for Aegis. That pretty much eliminates most of my issue with it. The other are the paint apps for his truck stripes. I wish they would correct this asap. XTB has clearly put in excellent effort on the overall design of Paean and Aegis, and it would be tragic if all that effort was over-shadowed by shoddy paint paint apps.

    Man I have never had a issue of wich transformer to get. I been holding off on Trailbreaker to see if one comes along that really nails it for me. I just ordered Ocular TB. It wasn't easy, but to me I think for me he is maybe the one that looks the closest to g1 sunbow Tb. I will say all 3 that are available have things I like and don't like. Xtransbots TB is a bit to tall, and tiny hands and the shoulder issue. And the lines and paint issues in truck mode.

    Bc version is good, but I don't like the skinny legs and wonky knees. And of course the pita transformation. And I did not like the hands. I think the alt mode imo is the best. I will get Xtransbots Hoist. I do like it very much! I have not followed this thread much. I hope I made the right choice on Mmc TB. I just feel like Xtransbots takes me for my money more often and is still to inconsistent. Ditka was the last I got and I still have yet to get the replacement knees for him. Anyone have the mmc Trailbreaker and Xtransbots Trailbreaker? I would like to hear their thoughts on the two please.

    Shit. I've been trying to unload MMC Aegis...I guess I'll have to take pics and put him on eBay.

    I would've given you a break, man!

    I pray for you. My MMC Terry was a complete bag of shite with issues pretty much everywhere. Out of the box his cab windows kept falling off, one of the chest sliders was fused, both diecast runners fell off, both feet very loose, gun hand peg had no friction. I had a Spinout that was better quality. There are reports of breakages in the leg on multiple transformations too.

    I've bought two Ocular Max products, one was pretty good, qualit-wise; the other was a turd.

    Well shit! I hope I get lucky with mine. I don't remember bad reviews on him. I'm not saying there wasn't, I just don't remember them. I'm really bummed now. I watched some reviews and really seen nothing bad. I didn't ask because I just don't remember any bad qc problems with it. I know Spinout was a garbage, but you are saying Terriagies is worse? He is already been shipped fuck!

    FWIW - my copy came sans issues. I have no intention of getting rid of him either. I like the way he looks with Paen.

    @ibot: So how long does Paean need to wait for his buddy Da Vinci?

    I guess I got very lucky! He arrived today and I had no issues. No floppy or loose joints at all. I have no regrets and I really love the figure. He did not fall apart into pieces. The only issue is the wheels in truck mode will butterfly out if you press to hard, but that's very minor to me. Feels pretty solid and one of the best figures for me. Now I just need Xtransbots Hoist and I'm good.
