    Sure hope so. TCP has sold out. Perhaps another site would be willing to allow you to do layaway? Wouldn't hurt to ask and it would let you reserve now and finish paying later.

    got mine in yesterday, to credit tcp it was 7 business days via free ship, not the 2 weeks fedex had bumped the delivery date to at one point.

    this guy is super impressive. first purchase from fanshobby and it makes me want their other stuff now. this is the kind of toy FT used to give us, big bot, super high quality, and SIMPLE INTUITIVE TRANSFORM. I miss that last part about ft the most, their dinos were stunning and double evil feels like he came from THAT ft - the one that had me gushing over their toys for weeks/months after release, and actually enjoying to transform them.

    the only negative I have is some bigger feet, possibly diecast in that one area, would have helped greatly with stability. he can still balance ok for the most part, but something a little more there would have been nice.

    other than that, this is about as close to perfection as you can get. what a simply awesome bot!

    Absolutely terrific figure, very much echoing what Cracka J says above.

    Got him fri and super impressed.

    After going through all three modes, tank and base are my favorites

    Transformation is not simple, but straightforward. I am neither bored nor frustrated at the process

    As others have mentioned, everything stores every mode, which is very smart.

    I had him displayed in base mode next to Pandinus in temple mode. Need to get black zarak and utopia in there. I really love having a bunch of good city bots

    My only criticism would be maybe some bigger feet and...


    I wish he were 20% smaller. He’s so good in all modes i dont worry anymore about “fitting” my collection (he does), but it would fit better and eat less space if he were smaller

    He looks fantastic with Fuuma as well

    Fans Hobby is the best 3p company in my opinion. Fun figures that don't self destruct when you try to transform them and transformations that don't make you want to end your life.

    I hope they do a lot more figures.

    TCP and Fans Hobby is sending me a new left shin piece for my Double Evil, so he should be good to go soon.

    He is huge and awesome. The only minor complaint I would have is the same as several others, which is the feet being a bit small. The problem is that he has trouble standing straight up. But he does look the best when posed dynamically, so he really shouldn't be displayed standing straight up anyway.

    Can the ab crunch be locked into place? Or it relies totally on friction?
