    I just ordered him the other day, and he's already been spotted in the sky above LA, heading north. I can't wait to get him!

    I guess we sort of butchered this thread, but then again, with how big Cosmos is, he is quite the heifer Klaatu can't hide that he has a cow fetish.

    We barely grazed the surface. :lol 

    Some don't appreciate the cow jokes. I guess they don't like cattle tales.

    We should probably put the puns out to pasture.

    That was the (bad) joke, yes.

    I welcome UFO jokes back, after all the cow puns.

    I found it to be quite the Whopper. :D 

    I'm just trying to make things fun and pass the time until my Klaatu order arrives and then I'll be able to probe it personally. I'm confident that this little green man will be quite stellar. ;) 

    Seriously, though, thanks for be a good sport. You rock. Oh look, it's almost time for my weekly alien abduction. They always bring me back after about an hour.

    Dammit, I'm this close to drinking bleach.

    But in all seriousness, it's been fun. I think. Maybe.

    WHERE'S MY KLAATU ALREADY HURRY UP CHINA.

    I'm enjoying mine in UFO mode so much I still haven't transformed him.

    Has anyone had to shave down the peg for the beam accessory? My flight stand pegs in perfectly but the beam doesn't seem to fit. Might have to get out the file.

    heeeee just got mine today. Heads a little on the loose side [figure i'll future it up a little] but he's such a lovely little guy! [and boy yeah does that head really shoot up with the button press. geez. if the head ever pops off it would assuredly reach orbit due to the strength it pops up at]

    I have mine paid for locally, but I'm waiting on shipping when Sunstreaker arrives. I presume it would have shipped if I planned it that way.

    Given how slow BBTS's $4 shipping is, it would not surprise me if yours from China gets to you before mine does from BBTS. :lolol  I almost want two of these because I want to display it in both modes at the same time. Maybe sometime down the road I'll get another one? This idea has been hovering in my mind for a while now. Like others here, my collection is finally starting to round out nicely.

    Its a common issue. I didn't trim mine. I use clear paint but it still wont peg in as well as lower beam one. My issue is it won't stay pegged in. A slight nudge & Klaatu WILL Topple Over.

    Is the peg on the your stand too wide to fit, or too narrow?

    Yep, I'm familiar with that. Not fun, that's for sure...

    Does anyone know a good hitman? I think I need to call in a case of hit-and-pun.

    I used a 1500 grit sandpaper on the circumference of the peg then applied some clear nail polish both on the peg and the little hole it goes into. Now its perfect...

    Doesnt come off even after a few taps so im satisfied with the new found stability.

    I can fit the peg in just fine but it cannot hold the weight of Klaatu. Trying to narrow it more with clear paint but no avail. There seems to be no grip on mine between the peg & the hole.
