    I really want them to show off the optional horns. Every picture of Megatron has the original design of theirs and even though I really like it, I’m going retro for mine.

    Maybe 3rd time will be the charm and any remaining issues of the 2nd run will be ironed out.

    FWIW, I've got the second run from ShowZ and I've seen absolutely no issues, despite transforming it back and forth a handful of times. I'm careful not to bend the hood/chest part too far back when handling it, but it all seems fine so far.

    I know this has probably been answered, but any suggestions for Autobot logo placement aside from the obvious one on the combined mode chest?

    His trailer had logos on the original toy, towards the back, so on the blue stripe of his hip skirts. One of the original Bendy Prime releases had one in the middle of the hood of the truck rather than the roof, as did the black Cybertron repaint of that mold, and the G1-y coloring had it right at the top of the grill, but that's just for the "canon" placements. I imagine it would look decent if you put some on the backs of his super mode hands a la that g1 artwork

    Hmm they never carried the 1st run (skipped it)...
    You could ask if this is not some left over stock but it may as well sell out before they reply :p

    Compared to the first run, none really.

    The most widespread thing is his supermode waist sometimes splits in half but that's far less common than anything from the first run.

    My robot leg completely ripped off when i split the core bot's crotch for the first time, but they had a replacement part to me in about 2 weeks. Now, I may have used a little too much of my ape like strength to separate it, but their after sale support was fantastic.

    When I broke a part of the trailer cause I didn't have it fully extended before pulling FH asked for a pic of of the piece, my receipt/proof of purchase, and my address. After that I had a fixed trailer in 1-2 weeks for free.

    I used my ShowZ order page and they accepted that when I broke the gun's handle. This company really goes above and beyond. FansToys feel like they'd yell at you for breaking their panely nightmares and charge you double for being a manchild

    Good to hear this, it sure put more faith in buying FH's future product.
    Also I remember FT's after sale used to be good as well, now changed?
