wonder when it will show up on ebay. Been wanting this guy.
V1 absolutely. V2 fixed all the issues for me, heel spurs and hip flaps are a god send for overall poseability.
There is a night and day difference between the two. The first one is terrible. The second one...I've had no problems with. Seemed solid the one time I transformed it. The first I actually sold recently and wasn't willing to transform it back to alt mode to fit in the package as I wasn't confident if would survive transforming it back.
If people think their two are close to the same, I would question if they actually got a v2. The v1 is THAT bad...at least mine was.
This update is one of their great ones. The transformation isn't hard either, and the articulation is greatly improved.
Agreed I have both and V2 fixed everything that I felt was wrong. V1 looks ok but the crotch area is craptastic. V2 is great
For me Ollie (at least V1) qc wise ranks as the worst XTB product right next to Apollyon. Ollie V2 was an improvement but not quite a big enough improvement.
I kind of need this guy, so I'm going to roll the dice with the V2 re-release. Also, because then, it will cause TT to do an official version.
Having only ever owned a V2, whenever people complain about Ollie it's all Greek to me. Only issue with mine is the flap on the back of the right leg is loose and flops around sometimes.
He's pretty good, wouldn't say no to a more modern attempt at him though.
This looks to have more glossy paint than the original V2 ?
I missed out on the first version. So what’s the fixes or corrections thus ver 2??
Mmm i may have to pick this guy. Not my favorite character but i'm loving XTB last releases.
I never handled a V1 Ollie, but must admit I was not remotely impressed with the V2. He's definitely "old XTB" and absolutely nowhere near what you get with the better more recent stuff like Klaatu and Crackup.
Don't get me wrong, he looks fine on the shelf alongside my TFTM MPs but the in-hand experience is pretty grim IMO. I dread to think what the V1s were like.
That's great info, thank you sir.
3rd times the charm!
Aren't they re-releasing Arkose as well?
plus they are releasing Apollyon as well because demand is so high and 2nd hand market price is crazy!
Pre ordered at Show Z. Job done
So this reissue of v2 Ollie has XTB Dragstrip and Wildrider in alt mode on the side of the box unlike the first wave of v2? I wonder if there are any other differences.
