    Just got XT Toro (MP Cliffjumper) & Hubcap in and they're awesome. Having difficulty disassembling the feet, but got the head, hands and gun completed on Cliffjumper. Also turned his backpack into a shield and got his back cleaned up. Have a blessed week everyone!

    Yes, I slid the head off. Cut a rectangle of the vinyl large enough to fold around the back and sides. I also had to cut a slot out for the mushroom peg. You should be able to get glossy black adhesive vinyl at craft stores like Michaels or Hobby Lobby. They come in 12x12 inch sheets so you'll have plenty!

    Nice. Do those hands hinder transformation?

    Just got my Copri. Other than the stupid color mixup, he's a very solid bot.

    Man, Not Cosmos, Crackup and this guy are really convincing me that XTB is a true playa.

    They do stick out a bit more due to the added wrist segment, but since I removed his backpack I can't say for certain how much it effects transformation.

    They are resin printed via a commercial printer from what I recall.

    Apparently you cannot even bundle it together since their system won’t allow preorders to bundle with in stock items. Not like I have $120 worth of stuff I want from them either to get free shipping. Any chance you’ll be releasing an unfinished version on your shapeway? I still want to support you but can not justify over half the cost of the figure for a small add on

    @jream based on autotronprime's latest response to you, what does that mean?

    Yep. That's the case with everyone's copy. Seems to be XTB's only flaw with this set.

    In bot mode the only real stand out mismatch of color are his headlight covers... & I can live with that. Overall I'm really glad I got both CJ & Hubcap. Both are solid figures.

    I almost forgot. XTB didn't provide flip up headlights like with Boost and Hatch. Plus the alt mode widow tint is too dark. Other than that they seem to be pretty good.

    i'm assuming they will be printing them in resin and then painting them from his response. highly unlikely there is a resin that is a color match to the figure... so it would have to be painted. hard to know for sure tho until someone in the 'know' gives a full detail of what they are and how they are produced.

    So, maybe this is old news by now... but after a quick Google search it turns out that Coprimozzo is Italian for hubcap. :)

    And considering the fact that most owners will be displaying Toro in robot mode, I find this flaw acceptable.

    Sadly it that won't make international postage any better. Best scenario would probably be Shapeways for anyone outside of the US.
