    ShowZ was slow as shit to ship mine, I had to wait 4 days between getting the tracking number and having it display that the item is being shipped, before that it took a few days to go from ordered to shipped. I'd say just stick with your order and if more than a week passes, cancel your order or just give showz a shouting at

    None of these have been a nightmare.

    Sweeping does indeed look impressive. I just worry that the treads will be on the fragile side.

    Oh really? Good to hear.

    The handful of reviews I watched and read on the first few said that parts would just fall off, and the transformation was extremely hard, etc etc.

    I think the "Mixmaster" in particular was the one Emgo was pretty bad in this regard.

    How do these guys compare to ToyWorld's Knight Orion transformation wise? Also how solid is the body for anyone that has all the parts?
    I've heard mixed things. Sounds like they could be considered more complex/tedious to transform, which can lead to breakage, but I've heard people here say if you take your time and do it right they're good.

    Mixmaster does have a quit difficult transformation, but with time and patience, it can be done. I haven't had any breakages on any of my figures.

    Well shit. I asked showz to cancel my order for paranoider/bomber cause I ordered from agabyss, but instead they ignored my request and shipped it. So now I'm getting two sets of them.....

    Ignored, or didn't see the request in time, as the package was already in the shipping process?

    You posted about that around 7PM EST last night, which means there's a very good chance they didn't get the notice in time to communicate to the team shipping out orders.

    What's up with Showz lately? They appear to be messing things up, causing delayed handling/shipping times and disappointment. My order from last month was delayed and so is my order for DS-07&DS-08 (tracking info received, however package 'not handed over to the shipping company').

    What type of tracking are you getting? For me, they've started uploading the destination carrier tracking number, so it won't show anything until they receive it.

    That’s entirely possible. I thought they were a small enough operation that they could easily communicate things like that.
    Yeah they haven’t been very solid lately at all. I’ve been hearing a lot of complaints. They must have grown a lot and are having trouble handling a larger operation. It’s a common problem with small companies. A couple years ago not that many people knew about them now I feel like everyone orders from them.

    This is my 2nd completed purchase. I didnt hear from them for a week after I paid for this next installment of Devy. Had to email them to follow up. Could be a small operation, maybe they have other jobs? Had heard good things before.

    This one shows where the screw covers go and setup out of the box.

    Does anyone here own both Devil Saviour's and Mechanical Alliance's Hightowers? If so, would you be able to take pictures of them side by side?

    To be fair, it definitely seems like DS07+08 took so long to release because DS suddenly had to backtrack and address the mass breakages with Compressor. They had to go back and do some minor retooling on the ratchet joints in the hips, have the new pieces mass-produced, send out individual replacement pieces to all retailers who had customers request replacements, and then package all remaining replacements into every release of DS07+08.

    Curious as to how figmas size with these guys. Could have figma Doom Slayer going up against these guys' crazy robot modes. Could say the robot modes are so insane because they're possessed construction vehicles.

    How are you guys going to have your Paranoiders in robot mode? The two legged mode gives a little differentiation from hand mode, but three legged mode is more in line with the others.

    I have actually watched them since my first Order (DS Mixmaster) and can confirm that they became a Huge Store with Many Stuff in their Inventory and new Brands for Sale.

    This may cause some Delays in Shipping
    but eventually every Package will be Shipped out.

    Never Lost or Delayed a Package here in Europe, everything arrives within 2 Weeks at Germany.
