    Grabbed both the BBTS preorders. I missed them the first time around, but I bit this time. I didn’t even know about the new figures until just now. This feels like a whole new rabbit hole to fall down.

    They're amazing figures. Great quality and articulation. You won't regret them.
    Hopefully the upcoming releases follow that trend!

    Speaking of the upcoming figures, ShowZ has the upgrade part available for pre-order. No full price or release date yet, but they're referred to as A03 Tarantula Drone and A04 Wasp Drone. Also gives us some close up shots of them.

    Got my Prototype Apollo today, and didn’t get much chance to mess with it. Gave the head a press for the lights - nothing. How do you install batteries, and what type to they take? It didn’t look like there was any paperwork in the box, so I’m stumped right now.

    Check the bottom of the box for battery instructions. There's a panel in the middle of the back that slides down for the batteries. I think it's 2 LR44 batteries.

    So I've got all three of these preordered at TFSource, but shouldn't get all three.

    How do I choose which to get? :lol

    Just received the Apollo prototype I ordered from Toy Dojo, and the color is a lot nicer in hand, not as garish as some pics I've seen might suggest. The green isn't nearly as neon fluorescent as I expected, I'd liken the color combo to be more along the lines of Evangelion Unit 01. I really dig it :)
