    Yup what Honesty said^

    Also, I noticed the picture of the battery orientation in the instructions was the opposite to how I had to Install mine. I thought my sword was not working until I turned the batteries around. It's very easy to strip the screw holes so be careful.


    My pins have what looks like glue residue surrounding them. So they do not move at all. I'm not sure if the pin is removable without a fight. I wouldn't recommend it if yours is the same. I have received parts from tony before and he has delivered. Just report it with picture and he will take care of the rest.

    Just file a claim. I'm tired of hearing about their complete shit service and lack of DECENT customer support.

    I said it before and I'll say it again: unless they're ready to swallow their pride, come right out and tell the world how shitty they been, and how they plan to fix the their shit service; no one should be ordering from there anymore. They're pretty big, will take a lot of people boycotting them for them to ever take notice it seems.

    How they don't know this board exists is beyond me (they probably do and just not post here ... Why would they? They would be such an easy target). CapturedPrey, ToyDojo, some 3P companies, TCP, etc all have a presence here. I even seen BBTS post on the warbotron back when that was filled with controversy.

    They clearly know it exists. They are a major sponsor.

    Yeah .. So they know. Time for changes (that still haven't come :( ....)

    Nope. Doesn't come with. Can get at a dollar tree/store or any place that sells small batteries like that (which is a lot of places! :) )

    No. You need to pick up your own. SR66, I think. DollarStore (or one of their competitors) sells them 4 for $1.

    How easy is it to remove the beak? Mine has a scratch and will probably be getting a replacement beak, but I am horrible at taking apart figures and I am a bit worried I would damage it.

    There are some little screws in the underside of his beak - assuming you're talking about the top half? It's designed to be taken off, as the clear beak is included with Soar. :)

    Got mine today and I can be put into the category of happy punter. You can't over emphasis how good this figure looks, with the light reflecting on his chrome and metal he looks fantastic.

    QC issues - like most I had to loosen various screws, both gold parts on his thighs have chips towards the inside and the sword doesn't peg in to the right hand slot (I could widen the slot but then the gun wouldn't fit, so the sword can even fit in loose or in the left hand).


    Overall a great figure. The most 'high-end' TF I own.

    Mine finally arrived today after being in shipping limbo. Words can't express how happy I am with it. Fanstoys have done a great job with my favourite Dinobot. I love how heavy it is and the foam in the box was such a nice touch. I'll probably have to loosen the screw as the others suggest but my biggest decision now is: chrome wings or grey. Both look great with the chrome being super shiny but I love the extra detail that stands out more in the grey wings. Either way I love it.

    Does Soar come with instructions and a card, etc... Nothing like that included with mine.

    He should do, but a few members have posted that they didn't receive any.

    I made this offer before, but if you need someone to take photos of the instructions and post them, I can.

    I've had him swapping back and forth but I am leaning toward dino' mode. He just looks so good with Slag & Grimlock, and brings a little something different that all the other humanoids. :)

    This. I go back and forth, too. But for now he and his dino buddies are in dino mode.

    I'm also leaning towards dino mode as it seems cooler and more unique
