    Decided to cancel my pre-order on these.

    I want the mmc ones for display anyway as I prefer their size (birds excepted) so looking at it critically I only ordered them from a sense of completionism.

    There really is no contest DS to FT

    And, whilst it pains me greatly...

    Without BSF I'd have had to make do with
    1000004452.jpg

    That back end is a bitch, and you 100% need a spudger. I was bending plastic and convinced it would snap...

    It's a fiddly little thing that might be easier with time and transformations, but seriously it was so tight and not obvious. The FT video makes it look simple and smooth and it's anything but.

    Overall, though, I like!

    Watch Ramhorn's rear end, and the fiddly bend that you may or may not need to do with Steeljaw's front legs/rear end...

    I wonder... Isn't it "easier" to buy extra guns directly from Fanstoys?

    I really like this set, I actually think Ramhorn is my favourite of the 3. Can’t wait to get them home and display them with Blaster and Rewind!

    About to do the same. Though I just bought two sets to get two Ejects, since I don't have FT Blaster and therefore no Rewind. Hopefully my painting skills are OK. Never painted anything before.

    Anyone notice that according to Fanstoys, Ramhorn is not a rhinoceros, but a "battle unicorn"? Hmm... 20230622_075416.jpg

    Battle unicorn does sound cooler, to be fair.

    Or… you could’ve just emailed FansToys directly and purchased the extra guns on their own.

    The people on these boards sometimes… lmao
