    My ZB02 Airstrike arrived Saturday. Honestly, I don't get any of the "feels cheap" or "too light" commentary. It feels fine to me and is a pretty nice figure for $60 IMHO. :)

    It's the nature of the hollow design throwing ppl off. If it's not Fanstoys and laced with diecast and/or paint then it must equal not premium/cheap/flimsy.

    I totally agree, I would rather buy this at 60.00 all day long compared to some of the prices of the "Fan Club" toys. I'm not a toon accurate junky though, I actually like robots with flare!

    He's actually my favorite 3p figure I own so far which is funny since I didn't want Air Raid so much as I just wanted Superion's leg. He just feels solid and looks great. He has a transformation that's simple enough to be easy but well engineered enough to make for a great looking bot and alt modes (large box under the plane notwithstanding).
    Ok, maybe it's an exaggeration to say he's my favorite. I've got maketoys Downbeat and KFC Transistor which are probably the top contenders for my "favorite" position. I don't enjoy Downbeat's transformation all that much though and I dunno': there's just something about Air Raid that makes transforming him more satisfying than pretty much every other TF I own.
    I still hate that front landing gear though. Doesn't like to fit in the closed position in alt mode and is difficult to dig out during transformation due to the spring.

    I guess because it doesn't have the heft of a Takara MP11/MP11x series seeker.

    I'm guessing ZB-01 drops this month.

    Was messing with mine yesterday and did notice that opening the "hood" does help that part of the transformation of the landing gear. Who knew lol. I like that it doesn't seem a chore to transform him unlike some other bots I own, talking to u despotron!

    So wait. Did zb01 get pushed back again? They've been saying "next week" since the beginning of December but for some reason I had it in my head that it was for sure this past weekend or this week sometime. Is that not the case?

    I take it once they start popping up on eBay is when we can expect them to start hitting sites? I'll probably grab Flyfire from there once I get my eBay bucks.

    Starscream can finally have some aerial combat fun... He was the only MP (scale) plane I had prior to Air Strike.

    Is Air strike supposed to have light piped eyes? The back of the head is clear smoke grey plastic but they eyes are opaque.

    I think it was originally supposed to but they changed it. Same with the Combaticons. In fact, I think those guys were actually shown with light piping.

    Every Toyworld figure I have has that stupidly annoying lightpiping feature that only works when the light source is positioned just right, so I'd be willing to bet the designers had to put the feature in, but when they broke off on their own they removed that feature. The molds were probably already made so they just changed the plastic since they hate lightpiping as much as I do.

    It was, but when zeta broke off.from toyworld, they changed the light piping to smoky grey plastic.
