IMO he looks great and I even like the transformation. Just waiting on the new shoulders and more pics will come lol.
Cool. My first thought was that these aren't really necessary because the stock shoulders can be put in a lowered position, but its a bit awkward looking and it looks like these handle it in a cleaner and more stable fashion. I've also ordered a set.
Do they only come in pink? Since it's impossible to match colors with most 3D printing, I think grey or black might look better, as that's "standard robot/mecha joint-color".
I assume you dremelled off those shoulder pegs and repainted the gray part? Always wondered if those pegs are necessary for transformation. Never bothered to transform mine. But that look along with the lowered shoulders is definitely an improved look.
No repainting needed and it's not needed for transformation
I recall there being a guide in this thread showing how to remove the shoulder tabs? Can anyone point me to the right page?
Thank you for posting this. I think I will try this.
It does help, and looks better. I did mine
You could always paint them before installing...
Painting hinges never works well long-term.
Finally bought a pair. Thanks again for making these available.
No worries, hope you all like them.
For anyone buying from outside the UK obviously expect a delay but I have included two sets. I'd rather they didn't take weeks to get to you to find something is wrong etc.
The first bunch I sold have all been shipped. Some of the most recent ones I'm waiting on more screws so will be a few days delay
Got my ebay notification earlier!
Nice one that you're including 2 sets. I'm in Australia so the distance is pretty far. So you'd include 4 joints if I say ordered?
He’s $80.99 on BBTS and Im a big fan of FT Jabber and OM Springer and could use a Hot Rod to go with them.
Is this dude worth that? In general I think he looks good in both modes but Id like to get you guys’ opinions before I jump on it.
He kinda sucks... he kinda looks goods standing there but.... ehhh .
Alt mode is ok if you like weird as rear tires.
My dude @pezley is offering shoulder joints that make this dude tolerable.
Bottom line... I prefer the look and posibility of MP28-40 ... this guy suck posibilty wise.
If you're a Fans toys fanboy... by all means... waste your money.
He undoubtedly looks better than the TT one, but hes a deeply flawed figure in many respects.
If all you want to do is pose him on a shelf, looking good and be done yes, if you want to mess with him and transform him a lot no.
If it's a bit of both, maybe.
