    I'm trying to decide if I should get FT-28 Hydra, D10 Hanzo, or D08 Blitzwing. So hard to decide, sigh...

    Hydra rules but you can often find Hanzo for a bargain. I'd wait for FT on a Blitzwing though.

    I have both Sixshots and while there are some things I prefer on Hanzo, Hydra is the overall superior Sixshot, and the most accurate, though I may prefer Hanzo's robot mode over Hydra's

    Does anywhere Stateside still have Hydra? I'm in the same boat as StarchCraft.

    Looking at Bobby Skullface review, he basically cracked one of the plastics while transforming it. How "robust" is Hydra exactly? Especially for someone who like to transform it while in boring meetings. Hydra's alt modes certainly looks a lot better IMO, but Hanzo seems to be tougher overall.

    I'm hankering after a big-ass Sixshot and cannot decide between this fella and GT Fuuma. Argh.

    He broke the shoulder, right? That doesn't happen if you know what to do (can't explain precisely, sorry)
    Pick him, Fuuma's treads naturally break

    Isn't the part he cracked the translucent canopy for tank mode when he went to plug the wings in for gun mode? If I'm remembering right that was partly user error. I don't believe he extended the wings out from the body (they side straight out from the torso, not the wing hinge themselves) to create proper clearance. It's been a long time since I watched it so I might be remembering wrong though. Either way translucent plastic has always been a weak point for any figure with it. Probably wasn't wise to use it as a tab in point. I've been fine so far, but I am careful when I use gun mode (which isn't often compared to other modes admittedly)

    I will also wait for FT on all triplechangers.
