    Just don't turn Ft20 sideways to expose his signature FT slenderness, or expect him to stand without leaning backwards or pose his arms without his backpack unpegging.

    Hindsight shows Terminus is one of FT's weaker releases, anyone that still thinks it's the superior Omega after handling both is wearing fanboy tinted glasses. I loved TG at first and then Gabe showed him up and he was sold and I never looked back.

    Still own the mould in the Guardian colours but that still doesn't hold a candle to DX9.

    As a former owner of both (I sold my TG at a loss) DX9 hands down IMO. Here's a post where I elaborate on why. I hope this helps!

    these are all the same reasons why i picked DX9 over FT.

    thank god i was able to demo both of them before i made my purchase. the FT bot has a couple of really cool details like the led eyes and the matrix chamber plus a few slightly better finishing touches.

    but after that it isnt even close when it comes to the overall bot. gabriel is so fucking solid that when they are next to each other the differences in quality are like night and day.

    Man I got tracking details but it’s still not even in the system, I guess it hasn’t been shipped, just a label created?

    Haha, I actually kinda disagree ;)  I appreciate FTs facesculpt, and I actually prefer the face itself than FT OS's.

    HOWEVER: I like DX9's more when installed. It looks great with the face guard (the window) on. Somehow it refracts the face so it looks better in that configuration a than FT's does. But yeah, its subjective.

    That sucks. Mine shipped and days it's gonna be here Tuesday but it still hasn't left the FedEx facility it's being shipped from and they're really not known for being fast so I'm worried it'll slip back to Thursday. Not like super worried but I'm on vacation through Wednesday and was hoping he'd arrived before I go back to work.

    I got the same message and he's only 90 miles away from me. I'm lucky tho, I'll be taking time off from work from Wednesday to next Monday. So I will have plenty of time to mess with Gabriel when I get him.

    Jesus fking Christ! now mine is in Chicago! I swear FedEx is so fucking inept it's not even funny. Only an inept company would send a package going to Iowa to the Twin Cities then back to Milwaukee and now to Chicago.

    You think that's inept? Check this out:

    For the record, I live about 30 minutes away from SLC. That package has been within spitting distance for 11 days now. And it's still got to be handed off to USPS which means at least one more day - Tuesday the 31st at the earliest.

    Gabriel is better in every way, specially Gabriel has VOLUME. FT OS is flat by the sides.

    New user but long time lurker and I mean since early 2000s I believe. Says mine will arrive on Tuesday, so I will have him to be held at a nearby FedEx location that I can just swing by and pick him up instead of waiting on USPS. Hopefully if I get him soon, I can give some extra verification on what condition he arrives in. Can not wait any longer!!

    So just transformed mine and solid as a rock and pretty straight forward. I watched the BSF video on him and he does a really good step by step.

    Be careful transforming back to bot. The part where the roller tank part tabs in the bottom goes in with a really nice click, but super tight getting out. I had to wedge him between my knees and just put pressure on it till it let go. Took quite a bit of force. Just wanted to throw that out there. Everything else moves and locks into place no problem.

    Would have took pics, but forgot in the fun I was having. Will probably set him up with G1 Omega on my kitchen table tomorrow.
