    Your absolutely correct ! Don’t get me wrong , im not praising FT’s for there lack of swivel. I’m not happy that yet AGAIN , another plane lacks a proper waist swivel. It’s like when it comes to planes they have the same issue they keep running into over an over again .

    MP Arcee has the mother of backpack and she can not only waist rotate,but an ab crunch and swivel side to side...maybe this is the limitations of third party companies engineering wise.

    After messing around with the backpack, I think this is as close to screen accuracy as I can get it. It requires unclipping the main wings and putting them back on in a different configuration. But I'm much more happy with it being accurate. 00100dPORTRAIT_00100_BURST20200515212953474_COVER.jpg 00000PORTRAIT_00000_BURST20200515212941312.jpg 00000PORTRAIT_00000_BURST20200515212916510.jpg

    I finally got in my Silverbolts. A little disappointed by the figure. Mostly in QC. Really tight or loose joints by pins pressed in incorrectly. Two of the most annoying are two small pieces on the chest that just flip about and tend to hang down out of position.

    Well I finally got my “payment request” from baba. Most definitely will be getting all my bots from toy dojo from here on out. Just more convenient. Well except for Thomas cause I already ordered through ShowZ lol.

    The more I look at Goose and Iceman, the more I'm convinced that the backpacks are the way they are is because of the combined mode.

    For me, Goose's backpack is so far off the source material that it just didn't make sense to me. With Iceman it's a little more faithful but even so, it's definitely not accurate.

    The fronts of the robots are so slavishly accurate to the cartoon that I can't imagine any other reason for the backpacks to be the way they are other than to make the combined mode less kibbly like it is in the cartoon. If they went with a screen accurate backpack (which is very similar to how the backpacks look on the toys), you'd have all the wing kibble hanging on the sides like Zeta's set does, as well as the G1 toys.

    So yeah, if the backpacks had to be sacrificed in individual bot mode, I'm okay with it as I'll be displaying it in combined mode anyways.

    This is as close as I can get both backpacks to be accurate. IMG_20200515_223621.jpg IMG_20200515_223509.jpg

    Goose is one swivel hinge away from having the vertical stabilizers sitting perfectly down the middle and facing the right way. :(

    I use a bit of waist swivel on every figure cause it makes them look more natural with little tilt, but not having it isn't the end of the world. It clearly isn't a priority for Fans Toys though which is a bummer, it can obviously be done if it's factored in as a priority.[/QUOTE]

    with all those semi-swivels on your shelf I’ll bet it makes the non-swivels stand out. Even more so for the folks who go for super dynamic poses.

    Silver lining: All my static bots play to the least common denominator!!! :D

    BBTS has had preorders opening up one at a time the past two days, may be worth checking often, see if you can grab one.
