    I also believe it is doable. The usps website never updates it but I have recently used Paypal to print out label for 15 oz first class package under $5. I have also received package using first class mail at 15.9 oz.

    Is it PayPal via an eBay sale? Mine was straight up through PayPal without eBay at 14.1 oz.

    Anyway, sorry for off-topic! My Toro has processed through customs so should be here soon. Anxious to see this divisive backpack and how those hollow calves look in-hand

    19C1E9B9-1F2F-4D43-BA37-0C8287558A1B.jpeg I tried my black vinyl sticker idea and I’m quite happy with how it minimizes the contrast between the windshield and neck flap.

    Just got mine from a Netclow.

    Pros: didn’t need instructions to transform.
    Looks better than Aces because of the fake chest.
    Pretty poseable and fun

    Cons: Woof! That backpack looks horrid!

    Plus: shouldn’t be hard to knock out the pin for the backpack and 3D print up a cover. It’s basically an “L” shape.

    I printed it off Paypal directly, not sure about ebay though.

    The more I mess with this figure the more I really like him. The combination of finish on the red, the blue windows, and the solid nature of the plastics really feels leagues better than older XTB stuff, and even dare I say it, official feeling. Yes, the backpack is large, but the way I have him displayed, I am totally ok with it (you can't see it) and know I can remove it if I choose to at a later time. This is an awesome little figure and I'm so happy to have S1 knocked out.

    I started to feel this way with my OP.EX Prime. I got him because of the expensive MaxMas, and was weary of his torso when compared to MaxMas, but the more I looked at him, tightened a few things, I really started to like him. I MIGHT still get MaxMas for his appearance (which is still appealing) and transform OP.EX if/when necessary.

    I can own a TF and not have a need to transform (much like Tyrantron which I will never transform. His Alt mode is really not necessary).

    Mine is being delivered today. I have to take my kids to the doctor and might miss the mail though. I can't remember if I have to sign for Netclow deliveries or not.

    Yeah, it’s really a case of two mediocre options and picking which you prefer. For me I like the car hanging off the back because it almost matches MP Bumblebee who has the rear of the beetle on his back. The diff being Bumblebee can hide the wheels. With Cliffy you need the wheels out to fit all the panels inside. Just nice to know there’s another transformation option.
    Whats MaxMas?
    And sorry, didn’t mean to ignore the rest of your post but not knowing which figure you’re comparing to is making my brain hurt this early in the morning. I’ll need to re-read and parse the text again once my coffee deprived brain has something to work with.

    Hah. Of course. You know I honestly thought it was Ultra Maximus... and I own the figure! Cool. So re-reading the post... uh huh... yep... ok... Hmmn. Yeah kinda agree, GC transformation is not fun but they nail the bot mode so well. It was an easy decision for me. I too don’t always feel the need to transform, but it’s important that the capability is there. For me though, aesthetics is the primary factor - has to look right GT Op Ex is great and on its own would be an easy win, but GC’s just does bot mode better so I chose that. With Cliffy, Toro looks the best to me in bot and alt, even with the backpack. MMC chibi mode is an instant fail to me for MP (I might not transform but I need to know I can and when it does it right) plus their bot is less appealing. Backpack is just the price we pay.

    I got mine today! Transformation is pretty straightforward, and thankfully nothing like Boost's. And maybe I'm crazy, but the backpack doesn't really bother me. I almost feel like its size was blown out of proportion.

    Sorry guys, not much I can do about the shipping cost. I would suggest contacting GCI directly to negotiate the shipping based on your shipping location. I'm sure they can figure out something that will work for you. Also if you are able to bundle it with another product then that might be a better option. In any case, for those that have ordered or plan on ordering I really appreciate the support and I hope the upgrade adds that finishing touch to your figures!
