    ... and don't forget the old used lithium battery in a box shipping scam.

    Both my copies of Grenadier should be here next week. :cool:

    Another "better" shot of the Grenadier change. Some comments I've seen in a Chinese forum:

    "The initial version of the yellow shoulder has two black screws, which can't be tightened. The mold has been reprinted and changed, and the screws are gone."

    "There are two buckles under the armpit. The yellow part of the arm can be rotated."

    Insects 1.5 instead of 2.0.

    That probably means we'll probably get a new and improved Kickback!!!

    Video from @RoboLukas of the change, from what I understood, it's important to to open the latches before moving the yellow part, otherwise you may break the product.

    Embedded video is not working, but FB link is here: Facebook Groups

    The wrist joints on my copy are SUPER tight, i had to watch a video to make sure if he even has joints.
    I'm gonna give it another try later on but i'm really scared i'll snap the hands off. Also the fingers on the right
    hand are also crazy tight. Are these figures made for Strongmen?

    OG purple vs new grey. Has the armpit latch and also I think the top of head piece is diecast instead of the plastic on the purple.

    Excellent. He looks really good. Is there any "extra" paint?
    Although I have ordered the grey, I am looking forward to the new purple vs old purple comparisons.

    Beautiful. 5 years later grey still owns purple. :D 

    Grey or purple, the FT bugs aren't perfect but they're still the best Insecticon option out there. I still like my set a lot, especially Bombshell. Enjoy your reissue, folks!
