    Amazing how a simple mod like this really improves the figure! Awesome job!

    Odd cause I woke up with another email saying it's shipped. So I don't know if he just marked it shipped but it's not until he gets more in or what lol it does have a tracking number so we'll see

    So for those of you that One Day Bid said he'll be shipping next week, did you order after his initial sellout and re-listing?


    I ordered before he sold out, which is why I'm curious.

    So I just got this guy yesterday and have to say: It's not bad but far from perfect. The head could have used more paint like BSF said but that seems like a pretty easy fix, especially since it's just white. The part that really lets me down is the knees and they feel way too weak to really support him. I mean, he looks great in an A-stance but anything other than that there is a good chance he's going to tip over even if you find that sweet spot for a picture. Really sucks that he also doesn't at least have a better ankle rocker. I think this is far from a rush to buy a figure. Don't regret, but probalby should have just waited.

    I hope their plans change in the near future then. That will annoy the hell out of me if they don't. I'll still enjoy Hydra for what it is, but I'd really like a Greatshot to go with it.

    I'm not super familiar with Greatshot, would it require remolding to be done or is it just a straight repaint? I know lots of sixshot molds have just been repainted but I'm not clear if thats accurate to the toon/character or just easy repaint money.

    It would need some remolding in the chest, shoulders, heads, but not a lot.

    Let's not forget Sixknight as well. Not one but two possible remold options.

    I'd love a Greatshot too, as long as we're showing demand :)

    One great thing about FansToys is they never remold for different characters.

    Cool, hopefully DX9 does if FT wants to leave the money on the table.

    You should be thankful for that. You'll get a brand new mold.
