    I've used TFs Express before, pretty similar to ShowZ, they ship from china. A bit slow shipping but legit

    I asked showz in another thread when they expected split to be in stock and they said it would be shipping this week.

    Every time I see an update here I hope it’s about Skipjack’s release :( 

    Hopefully it’s not too far off now

    I have my shipping number for my Split!
    I can't wait for him to arrive, I'm a slut for masochistically complex and confusing transformations.

    Also glad to see my Split is already on the way!

    Curious about something - for those of you that already have Split, would you say that the transformation is much less of a headache if you just never bother dealing with the gun mode?
    I appreciate the fact that they engineered Split to accommodate all 4 modes, but I personally have no interest in the gun mode and from what I understand that transformation has a few headaches on its own. I'm wondering if I'll have a better time wrapping my head around the transformation if I just pretend that it doesn't have a fourth mode.

    I only did from robot to truck so far and it was headaches. That's for sure
    But! His build is solid

    Is there any section in particular that is the most trouble? Or is the entire transformation process a nightmare lol

    Of course some step are easier than other.
    But globaly you may have a frustrating feeling that the whole figure is struggling against you during the transformation process. For example some tabs on the front of the truck don't properly tabs.
    Still it was not my worst transformation but it sure was challenging

    I don’t have split but I’ve watched transformation videos several times. I’d say that the gun mode is for sure not worth it, especially since it’s not really accurate to the film. In the movie he just sort of jumps forward, the gun flips out and his legs go up in the air. Split has it as a whole nother mode with the legs all transformed and stuff. I’m probably just gonna make my own version that’s closer to the robot mode.

    Got my Split today... and right out of the box he's unable to stand on his own. The legs unpeg so he's splitting to the sides and falling on his butt and the guns that are supposed to fill the back of his legs fall off with the slightest touch. So it looks like DS didn't feel like improving anything on that matter in the further batches o_O  For now I applied some kiki on his tabs and let him dry. Definitely a fun time ahead :rolleyes:

    You would think they would improve on a problematic figure with many notorious issues. Sorry to hear that dude

    My advice for split is make him devestators head, then forget he can even transform.
