    I was surprised when this arrived today! Wasn’t expecting this until after Chinese New Year...no tracking info or anything. Haven’t had a chance to mess around with it too much, but it feels great in hand! Sorry for the bad photo, wanted to share on the fly haha. 9D6F9DF6-1FCF-497E-A84B-BFFB3B2AB7C3.jpeg

    Damnit I really want this, but I’m struggling to commit with the price.

    I just got my Split. Sadly, I'm kinda disappointed. The resistances are off, some joints are loose and some are extremely tight. the tab for the cab at the back doesn't even fit. The worst part of it all is that the connection of the left leg to the waist was GLUED, for some reason some glue seeped in the joints. I was so frustrated with it won't even try to transform it at this point.

    So can the arms be positioned so that he has the wide-shouldered look?

    This is absolutely terrifying, which I guess is a good thing when it comes to Bayverse bots.

    Just transformed Split for the first time into vehicle mode. It reminds me of the ROTF voyager Mixmaster with the arms being tricky to put into place, but once you get where they’re supposed to go, it isn’t so bad. He holds together in vehicle mode really well, and looks great! I’m gonna hold off on combined mode for a bit until their Scavenger hits.

    Haven’t had any issues with loose joints or over-glued bits, so I can’t say how negative QC can be. I got a good copy, and I’m grateful! Hope you all can receive the same!

    Got this guy out of the box and into a pose I like today. I find the leg joints far too weak to support the huge mass of upper body so I’ve got a stand under him to take the weight of the truck cab that hangs off his back.
    Had to do a bit of sanding on some tabs and I rotated the thigh wheels up into his waist for additional standing support and a tidier appearance.
    Now I’m very satisfied with how he looks and am strongly considering double dipping on the whole line so I can have the individual bot modes and Devastator on display together.

    I have also received the Figure now.

    It is....a Horrible Mess.
    The Transformation to Vehicle Mode is a Nightmare (Part with the Drum)

    I used Video Instruction also, but still.
    I thought "What the Fuck is that sh*t,
    it does not make sense and is complicated"

    NEVER NEVER saw such an Horrible Over complicated Transformation in my Entire Life.

    The Transformation itself does not even make ANY SENSE, compared to UT and Toyworld Figures.

    Then, the Quality Control....Terrible.

    - Loose Screws all over the Figure.
    - The Screws overall are to Short!
    - Had to Replace some of them
    with longer ones.

    I will complete this Set, but i hope for better Quality for Rest of the Team.

    Positive:

    - Very Stable Head Mode, all Folding Parts
    are connected very well
    - Very Good Robot Mode, like a Walking Turret Gun
    - If all Parts are connected, all Modes are very Sturdy and Stable
    - Will make a good Devastator Head,
    no Doubts


    Negativ:

    - Loose Screws spread all over the Figure
    - Screws used are to short at some spots
    - Parts falling off because of that
    - Transformation from Robot to Vehicle and Head Mode is a horrible complicated Nightmare....EVEN IF you already know
    how the Transformation Works

    I have to Admit, owning all Studio Series Contructicons so far, that the Transformation
    is much more Fun on the SS ones.

    I still need around 30 Minutes+
    to even Transform Split. While i can do SS Mixmaster or Unique Toys Optimus Prime within 10 Minutes.

    THIS IS NOT FUNNY. I hope that this is the only Devil Saviour Member with such a Horrible Transformation, and that the other Members are easier to handle.

    I agree, I received mine this weekend. This is one of ‘Them’ transformations (Gcreations Prime and alien attack el cid come to mind) this is like the original rotf Voyager x10. It’s saving grace for me is the beautiful paint job and the head mode. I really hope the rest of the line isn’t as difficult as this
