    That's aligned with what I wrote. It is activities like production sample reviews that help edge it from just a product to a good product.

    I preordered Taiho from Baba in February (I preordered Jabber from TFExpress) I politely reminded Baba about my preorder (three times in the past two months, cause I'm usually on the ooops list)... aaand Taiho just showed up. No shipping notice or anything.

    Haha. Blurr always did kinda remind me of a distant cousin of the Sweeps. The colors, hover/flight alt mode, and bot mode head ornament does it.

    I’ve done the transformation a couple times and I like 80% of it.

    I like the arms and I like the legs but combining them together is not fun. The main issue is that you have to move the most fragile part of the figure blindly and getting it all to move together is not very easy.

    I’ll definitely be putting my unique toys runman into storage, I really enjoyed that figure but next to jabber runman doesn’t even look like it is suppose to be blurr

    Same here, a couple of breaks from XTB due to transformation and also straight out da' box. I tell you what though, XTB has great after service.

    Got mine today, he looks amazing. I will probably wait for am Emgo video before I try to transform him. I will only transform him to make sure nothing is broken or on the verge of breaking. Just in case I need to ask for replacement parts. His alt mode is one of those I don't care about, so I won't be transforming him much anyway.

    But otherwise I am very happy with him. Looks great with the others. Such a pretty figure lol.

    FWIW, I'm showing a picture I took of Jabber using my phone:

    fanstoys_ft39_blue.jpg

    What color do you see?

    I can't tell you. It depends on your display.

    On my phone, it looks (royal) blue. In person, it looks a shade more purple, but still unmistakably blue under overcast sky and cool daylight LED light (6500K).

    The same picture looks the same blue on three monitors and TV, but definitely purple on two notebooks.

    Now that I know my phone can show Jabber-blue properly, I can see it is definitely not the purple shown in this thread -- most pictures show it more purple than it actually is.

    Just curious... How do we know this is the real baba? Recommend using the established eBay, email, or his website to contact him vs giving out personal info to a brand new TFW account. Hopefully just an abundance of caution, but since no one else has voiced it...

    Looks like FT isn't doing the hard clear plastic cover on top of foam any more. I guess only Roadking got that.

    86' movie crew in the house.

    He's pretty much perfect with how he fits in with the rest of the 4 FT movie bots. He's not FT's best offering by a long shot.

    He's much better than Arcee, a little bit better than Hot Rod, very close with Kupp, not as good as Springer, and FT's more recent releases like Cyclonus, Motormaster, and Breakdown beat him hands down.

    Like it's been said before, I would bet he's an older design and I would also venture a guess that the same designer did all of the 86' crew because they are just so darn cohesive as a whole.

    Also on a side note, it would be rad if FT did do a Wreckgar, Wheelie, and Mags just to have the whole group from one company.

    old design that had packaging planned some time ago, before the new plastic lid is my guess
