Looks brilliant, but I take this affects the transform?
Did you order from baba's e- bay or his own store?
If from e-bay, how much shipping do you have to pay?
I think it's possible to transform her into a brick to use as a leg. Just like her car mode ( like the stunticons.
But she don't have connection ports.
Did Zeta's Aerialboys have waist swivvels?
I wouldnt have thought its the fact that they have backpacks that makes ot difficult to give them swivvels, but that their backpacks are made up of the nose and rear of the alt mode, connecting together in bot mode.
Arcee and Horrocons as examples of big backpacks with waist swivvels, arent their backpacks only made up of hoods? Fronts of their alt modes?
Come on, everyone. Air Raid does have waist swivel. You just gotta unfuck the backpack and... bam!
Those little red floppy bits plug in and are solid if you have the shoulders fully transformed (it is incorrect out-of-box). Unfortunately they do stay floppy in plane mode...
Who wants a good laugh? So baba sends me the PayPal to send the money and I pay by f&f without thinking. Got charged a foreign transaction fee. Long story short, Iceman cost me $150 shipped . I’m just going to sit in the corner now
Jaysus........................ u got shit end of the stick there mate. Least we will be on the way
That's why he doesn't have a waist swivel.
A waist swivel is that you can swivel it without undo backpack or anything.
Yes, you have to unclip the main wings and reclip them in a different way.
Like every 3rd party fig transform first time slowly and have your exato knife at the ready!
Mine arrives today while I'm at work, I hope they put it in a bag, it's supposed to rain all day.
Ron, I agree, it looks a lot nicer with your configuration.
These are really triple changers as they are also in combined mode. If you really want to have a dynamic pose I'm sure you could unhook the backpack, place him in a dynamic pose and cheat the backpack as close to the body as possible. I'm not sure why everyone is so enraged about this. It would be nicer if it had waist articulation without any loosening of tabs but we are not yet sure hos this guy will combine. Maybe the backpack position helps for leg stability? I guess we will find out.
I won’t lie. These guys look great together!
I tend to gravitate towards figures that have characters with human-like face sculpts.
Some characters, like Prime, have a mask over their mouth.
Others, like Grimlock, have a visor or sunglasses over their eyes.
These designs are cool and have a place, but tend to be less expressive.
The Aerialbots are noteworthy for all their character designs having mouths, and all (except Slingshot) have eyes. I think that's one of the reasons why they look so great together: their faces naturally are capable of a wide range of expressiveness. That's even more significant when we recognize how much FT knocked the face sculpts out of the park with Skydive and Air Raid. It's much riskier to design what's essentially a human face than, say, Grimlock (not that Grimlock is easy, there's just less margin for error).
Anyway, my 2 cents. They look great.
Some people want basic articulation from their expensive bots.
Don’t people really use the waist swivel of their figures? They just pose them in a shy A stand and called it a day?
What? Turning into a box totally counts
I dont think anybody is actually enraged but i fully agree with mike, and with the price hike it's a bitter pill to swallow that iceman is gonna cost me 120 uk sterling at this moment in time and can't even do a click left or right at the waist without breaking the sculpt over figures 2 years older and at half the price, yeah we all know zetas bots arent that great nobody is gonna say zeta > fanstoys
However with every little niggling issue i see coming up with fanstoys figures it pushes me more to the competition
YEah you can say "oh but zeta or dx9 have issues" and that might be true but i'd much rather have issues with a 60 or 70 quid figure than 120 quid figure
I also think transparecy would go a long way to unrile people, so if fanstoys had come out and said ok we're gonna make this combiners but the seperate figures will potentially have limited articulation points be it in the waist head arms shoulders whatever and the reasoning behind it i think people really wouldn't have a leg to stand on in getting all pissy because you know from the get go that these figures have limited articulation and the reasons why
But as it stands what's happening is that people are buying them and expecting them to be like every other masterpeice IF NOT BETTER and finding out they are more limited and thinking well i just paid 120 for this and why is it more limited? and i think people have every right to ask the question
Waist swivel is good to have, but it’s not a deal breaker for me. I’d rather have a head that can look up, down, left and right, than have the waist swivel. *cough* *cough* Hoodlum...
