    I'm just not feeling this one anymore. I'm on the fence about cancelling my preorder.

    Damn! :drool:  The legs do look bitchy to add on though. Just a question for the ones who have recieved him already: isn't it easier to start with his legs and then go with his arms?

    Probably some kind of "I can't deal with that now" light beer.

    Either way it sounds like a sexy party! :)

    Video reviews are ususlly so awesomely awful..I know they want to get on youtube first to get all the hits, but, you know just take a minute there to do it well.
    By all means, communicate. That's why the mics on there. You're tapping and pointing at a piece..You could just mention it, narrate your actions.
    Also figuring out how it actually goes before you do it, shaves probably about 90sec off that. Light. It helps.

    As for the figure..I've got mine preordered, I can't wait for it. But that gun, yeesh. They should just come out and admit they ran out of things to do with those parts. That kinda ruins it. And I wish they'd have made the Magnus head/face a little bit more Magnus like. But all in all, for the price it is--particularly when compared to what happened with the Cliffjumper set, well, nicely done.

    The legs get easier to do over time, once the plastic becomes more seasoned. Normally, i just start with the legs, crotch, chest, and finally the arms/shoulders.

    Indeed. Add the BFG and you can hardly pull off any poses. It keeps weighing the arm down and you need to support it with the knee.

    Check out www.fansproject.com, they did a repaint in diaclone colors for fun, which would go with Classics prime really nicely. They haven't said if they'll be making it or not.

    Man from this video, the armor looks like such a pain in the ass I think I'd transform it only once and be done with it.

    I just thought I'd comment on that most of us don't do it JUST to be the first. Yes, some people post whatever they can do first so they can get their claim to e-fame, but a lot of us just do the figures because we want to review them. I don't know, just my two cents.


    I'm trying to keep myself from watching the video since I want to keep some surprises for this set much as I did with Animated and the Universe figures, but damnit BBTS... Hurry up on shipping my order. I want this set oh so badly.
