    Kapow just sent out a newsletter to say they begin shipping on Monday. *Crosses fingers that my order gets sent out* I can feel the week is going to drag.

    Got em on Friday! Just before the holiday weekend...

    AWESOME! I'm very happy w this set.

    Brute is HUGE! About as tall as MP Convoy...

    I e-mailed FP a big thank you note. And I'm ready for Protector...

    If you have the cash, you MUST pick up this set to add to SL/E/U/ROTF Brute.

    A 3 day weekend for you to enjoy Bruticus. I think you need to take Tuesday off too.

    I've gotta add my 2 cents. After getting this set i'm wanting to sell off my entire collection in order to just have any and everything fansproject. Ihonestly would've spent double the amount for this set.
    The two figures i can't stop playing with, and all the accesories are incredible.
    The only down side is vortex's wrist set up, mine just won't stay on that great.
    This figure is what i've always wanted out of transformers. If this was the only one available and i had it i don't think i'd buy more.!.

    Is the chest properly collapsed? That may be the reason...

    Sweet! Great find with that, it makes the thighs/leg section look bulkier. Something about the "knee guards" always seem a little off. The "circle" detailing I think.
