    Got mine the other night!

    Gave him a quick transform, couldn't for the life of me get one of the knee flaps tabbed in the front but other than that a tight little robot! (Maybe I'll give it another go and see if I can't do better)

    The pinnacle of a toon robot, tho. I love the way he looks

    BBTS keeps bumping up the price on this guy so anyone that cancels, the lucky recipient of their preorder gets to pay a little extra. It's gone up $15 so far...

    Be careful when extending his arms, apparently someone has broken a screw in the plastic in that location during the process.

    Yeah and on mine, loosening the screw didn't help much. A little lube might. Mine didn't break though.

    Yah hes actually a really good seller, if its in stock he sends out with tracking pretty fast, sometimes it will say 7 day wait, but just because he's waiting for the 2nd batch to arrive from Fanstoys.

    Double Dayum. Like 2 peas in pod. Absolutely loving this Sunbow trend.

    Also a wider 'minibot' shot:

    It is truly the golden age for us Sunbow fans.

    Had mine about a week now. Right foot fell off right out of the box. The "T" pin holding the foot to the shin just just fell out. At first, I thought it was a screw but when I went to screw it back in, there is no key on the head and the threads were not threads but knurls. I put it back in place with a little "lock tight" and some steady pressure. It seems to be holding. Hope it holds because no one has any stock for a replacement.

    I really do wish he came with a toy style "faceplate" and a golden right hand. Love the "scanning" visor.

    Excellent figure. Still not sure if I will sell my XTB Arkose or display Arkose in alt mode. FT kills XTB in bot mode but XTB's realistic Alt mode has it merrits. Never liked the simplified vehicles in the cartoon. Even with FT putting their 10% anime mecha details on the alt mode, it still looks like s simplified Tonka toy.

    And it's glorious! That said it'll not be long to go till we get a full cartoon cast then they can go back to over detailing stuff and I can spend my money elsewhere :)
