    Heck yes, they can! They fit perfectly in those cockpits. The only one that's a little awkward is the jets since the opening conforms to the airframe (which makes it a little hard to get the shoulders squared up); for those I actually have to use tweezers to pull them out but the rest are easy.

    I'm pretty sure my Dianauts are reboots; I bought them NIB off an eBay seller in Japan last summer.

    I also have a demo video on YouTube that shows exactly what you were asking:

    Oh thank goodness. Finally, after 358 years, BBTS has finally fulfilled my pre-order of Jawbreaker (with bonus). Since I pre-ordered him back in Babylon, I could have gotten him a billion times at other retailer, but no one had him with the para-weapons bonus, and I wanted that stupid weapons bonus. I don't even really like the para-weapons anymore! I can't do anything with them when the cubes are in their boxes! I should have just cancelled and forgotten about the bonus! But I was too stubborn, and too much of a completionist.

    Well, anyway, now I have it, and now we're done.

    Except, of course, for all those other BeastBoxes-with-bonuses that I have pre-ordered there... I should probably just switch those orders to the AliExpress store.

    Can ironclaw/blue crab roll on the little wheel? I'm wondering how stable the crab mold is. The little gun/wheel section underneath can be used to support the body, right?

    Sigma showed up from 52's aliexpress store, and I had no problems with packaging. Sigma himself is cool, but he's a little clunky and there are some headscratchers like no opening mouth. 8/10, but thrashard/jawbreaker are still best dino.

    It seems like we're getting a bunch of new faces in here lately. Welcome! Where are you guys finding out about beastboxes from?

    Oh, the joys of having more money than sense. And I don't have a lot of money. I'm loving this little blue-screened arachnid.

    I found out about them a while back. I think Blazingspear was the first I ever saw, which is funny, because I still don't have it. I do plan to pick up Blazingspear and Toxichorn, though I try to avoid buying duplicate molds one after another. They're on the list, though. I'm really loving these figures, which is bad news for my wallet lmao.

    I'd suggest maybe trying toxichorn first. The blazingspear I have is a bit loose, which I suspect is a result of clear plastic

    Opened up my doggos.

    If you missed it the video has a link to 10% off the 52Toys Amazon store. Used it to grab Desert Meteor (the last mold I don't own) and Chromeribs (because shiny things are my weakness).

    Got the rabbits in from Amazon today. They're pretty good. Some minor complaints, but overall I'm happy to finally have some robo-buns. Still not sure which one is IronBlood and which is LoyalHeart.

    Also, maybe it's just me, but I think it's funny how they end up positioned for box mode, with their faces in each other's butts. :p

    I'm pretty sure the black one is Ironblood and the white one is Loyalheart.

    Thanks for the heads up. Unfortunately the chinese dragon doesn't appear to qualify for some reason. It looks like literally all of the other boxes do. :(

    Subzero doesn't either, which I find to be a shame, neither do Floyd or the bunnies, which I suspect is cause they're too new. Not sure what's up with the dragon though

    And I really wish Zephyr would be in stock at some point. It's still a listing there

    Thanks, I missed that (don't normally check video reviews for Beastboxes or regular TFs, only 3rd-party toys in case I need to know about QC issues). The link he provides also provides a link to the complete Beastbox line on Amazon (up to recent ones) without having to go through the 52Toys storefront, which makes it easier to look at them all as opposed to having to remember to click on one for every faction to see everyone. Here the two monkey 2-packs show in-stock when I haven't seen them ever since the Amazon store format change:

    Unfortunately, the price on Amazon for most of the boxes is slightly higher than the price on e.g. BBTS. For some of the items (like the Dio model kit), it's way higher on Amazon. So the coupon is only financially advantageous if you can't/don't want to order from BBTS, or if BBTS doesn't have the figure in stock and you want it now. Otherwise, seems like there's not much price difference between buying from BBTS and buying from Amazon-with-coupon.

    But with Amazon I get free shipping and it comes faster.

    thank you :)  i saw beastboxes on aliexpress years ago, but after postage and tax they were outside my price range (£36 each, in most cases)

    then, about a month ago i found them on amazon UK for £25-27 delivered. finally bought demondart, and he was just as good as i expected
