    Well, that can be one reason. The other one that comes to my mind is Gabriel is not so hard to open, and once it's properly lubed it is a hell of a fun toy. My biggest problem about all this fuzz is the lack of support from DX9. Not very professional.

    By the way, I made a (clumsy) tutorial in Spanish for opening and lubing Gabriel. In case anyone finds it useful you can check it here: DX9 Gabriel: tutorial de reparaciones

    I didn't even bother trying with my light box. The figure would just be wearing it like a shirt.

    Doesn't need it. He's even heavier than Terminus.

    Today I received my copy of Gabe. Box and insert were good, no damages.
    The figure itself is in perfect condition! No paint chipping, no scratches, no defects, no moisture! The light on the rocket arm wasn’t working. Changed the batterie and it worked immediately. So no problem there. Even the joints are fine. I don’t have the feeling I have to lubricate anything. I’m really satisfied with this big chunky guy!

    I bought DX9's Galvatron and loved it. So then I bought DX9's Omega Supreme. I loved him so much, I bought DX9's Blitzwing. Just got him today, and he's so epic, I ordered DX9's Powerglide. This is becoming a problem.

    my love of 3rd party figures started just this year, I bought Sovereign in March, and now Gabriel will be my 7th third-party figure since.

    Probably to late for you my friend, but if you can stop before you fall to far down the rabbit hole of 3rd partyt collecting, your wallet will thank you! LOL

    Some really amazing products here and as you said, this is my go to source for everything I need to know about each figure that comes out. It's an invaluable resource.

    Might I suggest Transformersaholics Anonymous. I joined it a few weeks ago. The only downside is that after so much group discussion I ended up buying even more figures! LOFL!! Just know your limits and you will be ok. For example, I ordered 3 TG Sentinel bots and now I am selling 2 of them off. Yes very bad idea and it was done on impulse. I have one sell pending and I'll be listing one more. Gabe is on the way from Toydojo when they get theirs. Sigh. So yea just use your better judgement unlike what I did.

    I wasn't going to do a lot of photos with this guy since he's too big to light properly in my house, but this was just too much fun to pass up:

    It should be noted that my CW Devastator includes the full DNA Design upgrade kit.
