    That is really cool. Love the chest filler piece and the new shield and sword. Head's pretty cool too (Though I have no problem with the stock version, it's nice to have options).

    The main appeal to me was the belly plate, but seeing how it has nowhere to go in robot mode, I have no interest in it now. Isn't there another upgrade kit with an integrated belly plate?

    Mine arrived yesterday. I absolutely love the sword and shield - Grimlock looks far better with accessories better matched to his size. I regret only the lack of 5mm posts on the sides of the new sword - while I can certainly understand that they would not be desirable to mane and have no place on a sword in general, they allowed the sword to be stored in both modes.

    The belly plate is great and really makes the figure feel more solid. My only remaining issue is that one of the shoulder hinges on my figure remains loose, making the arm swing easily. I would have liked the new plate to help lock that in place in robot mode, but still - it's a Hasbro design problem, not a problem with this set.

    The belly plate can remain attached in robot mode.

    Why did you remove it in your review?

    It's a nice set, but I feel the eyes are a bit dark w/o light piping. I did 2 coats of clear red and it's even darker, so I'll have to remove it all then go and do silver with clear red over it.

    Ha! Great little review there. Loved the almost-Randy-Macho-Man-Savageness of "Creee...taaaaay...shuss!" and the "Bob's your uncle".

    I love the set. The belly-fill's gonna be tossed aside when Iron Factory's set arrives, the head will be replaced with ArtTek's (tho I may swap the heads around from time to time), but I'm more than happy with the sword & shield. Beautiful piece.

    Definitely a decent looking set, though I think I'll go with the iron factory set instead for the stomach filler. I really like the new sword, but withough the 5 mm peg on the side, i dont think id use it. I really like the head though.

    If anyone has this set and doesn't want the head, I'd be interested in buying it off you.
