    Dune Runner comes to about a head taller than BB 2.0. Hunk a smidge taller than DR. Take that as will if DR is too tall. I find it maybe a smidge too tall by millimeters. I'll live. He looks great 20200822_205439.jpg

    I'm pretty sure that he does a lot of push-ups and sit-ups.

    And that he drinks plenty of juice.

    An approximate hybrid borrowing from Sunbow chart and a cumulative scale based on animation works for me, I envision Bumblebee and Cliffjumper as the shortest of the mini-bots. I am so looking forward to receiving this Beachcomber from ShowZ!!

    So, in a bizarre turn of events, the Dunerunner that I ordered from Baba a little over a week ago just shipped out. However, the Dunerunner that I don't even remember ordering 2 months ago from TFS-Express still has not shipped, so yay for lack of foresight?!

    I did not have a pre order. A shop in Holland shipped it to me in the UK in only three days.

    It's a beautiful piece of plastic.

    Has anyone who ordered from a Chinese seller/retailer got shipping or in-stock notification yet?

    The one from Baba shipped a couple days ago, but the one from TFS-Express has not. On their site and on FB they've said that they're limited to shipping only about 200kg of products a day right now, and that they were still waiting on instructions from FT for when they could ship orders from China, but their UK orders were already shipping out? (My unproven theory is another scenario of western retailers getting preferential treatment to drive the earlier markets while leaving China-based retailers with more economical pricing to wait longer to distribute, but that could be based more on paranoia than reality, especially if many Chinese retailers simply ignore the hypothetical "street dates").

    Tight joints as usual but actually pretty fun. I love how it cleans up and hides the alt mode parts.
