    500 days since I PO-ed. As good as reviews say: beefy, chunky, heft. Strong joints, things tab well. Ball jointed wrist seem to swivel easily on a hand holding a weapon but easy to drip a drop of floor polish to remedy. I can now understand the criticism of the tank mode, from the top it looks like a box (square, not rectangle) with a turret, but from an angled view, it doesn't really matter to me. The jet mode is far more effective, though the rear wing flaps pop off easy at the hinge (not at the ball joint) if mishandled during transformation.

    Very satisfied, not seeing the need for replacement from Fans Toys unless there is a very attractive offer (haha).

    Hi, may I ask. If anyone got 2 left side chest piece cos I got 2 right chest instead. Perhaps we can exchange. I’ve email DX9 but they replied back saying that they sold out and no longer have a replacement piece.

    I think you're better off returning the figure and get your money back. Or maybe you can try look for a 3d printing service and try to get some advice.

    I ordered a Gewalt last month when I saw it was available for $95 at ShowZ and figured why not? Today it arrived and I must say it feels like a steal at that price. I mean, these days you're paying $100 for Fans Toys minibots. It's so huge and I think all 3 modes work pretty well. Transformation is easily executed and all joints are nice and tight. The only small problem I have with it is the hip articulation gets a bit restricted for more dynamic poses as there is too much interference between parts in the hip area. I did get a QC issue where both hands got the same base thumb joint, so one of them can't bend forward. I remedied that by dremeling out some material in the wrong thumb joint. Not great but not a big deal either.

    I think despite being a pretty old figure at this point, Gewalt is a perfectly good figure for an MP collection. I'd say due to it's size and solidity, it's worth the original asking price ($130-ish?). At $95 it's pretty much a no-brainer for me.

    This is one of the most underrated bots, along with dx9 carry.

    Carry wasn't underrated, just left behind is all.

    After a month of supposedly being in Hawthorne, CA, it finally got updated to being in Sparks, Nevada?

    Got my Gewalt in the other day and got him into all 3 modes. He's a lot of fun to transform and doesn't have any real difficult steps, feels like one of those bots that you can mess around with a lot. Definitely happy with my purchase.

    After a LONG time waiting for the reissue, I finally got one from TFSource. In a few days I'll have it in my hands and I'm excited! KFC Ditka left a bitter taste and I am glad to have sold him off. GONE! It's been a while since then and I'm still happy I got rid of that POS. Really looking forward to getting Gewalt! I'm not a fan of that sour frown he has on his face but I can easily live with that. I was tempted by the accuracy of Ditka and paid for it. Gewalt is the one I should've gone for and I have finally rectified that expensive mistake. And no, Gewalt is not a filler for the Fans Toys Berserker. I'm done with waiting for that one to come out. And even IF I did get one, I'd still keep Gewalt because he's hand-on friendly. I appreciate that in a bot.

    Mine arrived yesterday and I must say, I didnt expect to love him this much. Hes huge, like I know everyone says that but he is a big beefy boy. Its not just his height though, he feels a brute. For me he strikes a good balance of cartoon and toy, kind of like the old MP figures. Its made me want to give thier Astrotrain a try

    *Odd request.
    Any one here have both Ditka and Gelwalt?
    Wondering if someone can tell me if its possible to switch their heads onto each other's body? Are they compatible?
    Thank in advance :)

    Nice pics, and I'm glad to see how good Gewalt looks next to Thomas. Was worried they wouldn't match, but that chunky aesthetic really works. Now if only Thomas would hurry up and get here...
