A-men to that!

This thing is a brilliant display piece & bit of accurate sculpting, but I still think there's something about the head that's off & I don't know why exactly, because the rest of it is amazing!

I won't be getting it though, due to the hefty price & the fact I like my Transformers to transform....oh and the QC after seeing Peaugh's review.

Such a fantastic piece. Thanks so much for posting the large photos.

It's just a shame BBTS sold out.

I hope they get more in someday.

Edit: NVM they are in stock, just read the above post lol

$129.99 now? Looks like it jumped another $10 in price from the previous $119.99. Crazy markup is crazy. Glad I got mine off AmiAmi while the getting was good.

No offense to Peaugh, but it's not like he was handling his with kid gloves.

He's too used to playing with the more durable TFs which he still manages to make fall apart during his reviews lol

Just ordered mine through amiami last night as well since it looked like they got more stock . I paid ~$126 shipped with EMS though . At least I'm still coming out ahead a little bit vs ordering one from BBTS. I get hit with sales tax with them since they're located in Wisconsin

no, it's cool. Part of the problem was that I'd had a long day, then spent 6 hours building this thing, and by the time I was shooting that last bit I was full on exhausted, and ready to be done with it, and just wasn't careful with it. I've used the other wrist joint attachment piece several times with no issues. Even the fingers are great now after I used the hot screwdriver trick to make them stay on and remain posable. I totally understand passing on this due to the price, but please, PLEASE don't misjudge the kit because *I* was an idiot. Handled properly, the wrist attachment pieces work just fine.
