    I should add, that given the choice right now between the two if I had neither of them, Id get the FT hands down.

    Hi Sixo, I have been a quiet admirer of your professional TF photography (only wish higher resolution shots were available). Recently noticed your Youtube channel and must say in such a short period of time you are well on the way to becoming a favorite reviewer. The depth of knowledge and scope your videos feel like more than just a review, kind of like a brief historical overview of a character with comparisons (which I love). Thank you for all the hard work, I greatly appreciate the knowledge and passion involved it shows in the results!

    This is by far the best figure FT has put out next to their Sludge and Grimlock.

    Good stuff, Sixo. While the length of the video had me like, "Whoa.", haha. Really means a lot to see you give a lot of info about the character in question on top of reviewing said figure. Kinda inspires me as i'm contemplating trying reviews for myself, if I gotta be honest, haha.

    Not to mention, top-notch photos, my man. If you don't mind my asking, what're you shooting your photos with?

    Well, that's just lovely - thank you *so* much for the wonderful comments, it's greatly appreciated. I'm glad you're enjoying the videos - it's still quite a new endeavour for me, as it's only been 5 months so far with no previous experience, so it's a steep learning curve but I'm really enjoying it and I'm really working hard to improve with each one, so I'm thrilled to hear such kind feedback. Thank you.

    Haha yeah, the length of it was something I was nervous about, but the reaction seems positive so far! And thank you, I really appreciate the kind words, and I'm glad you enjoyed it! You should totally give it a go too. Oh, and as for your question, I use a Canon 70D for my pics - typically with a Macro 35mm lens but I do vary it up a bit.

    Brawn was just ok, but this one is a pretty good figure IMO. Wrangling the cage out of the back of the figure is definitely an MP moment.

    Anyone know if the shins and feet are diecast similar to the test shot they posted months back?

    ShowZ has more in stock for $110. IIRC it's been out of stock.

    My first purchase from Baba (his online store). In hand from Baba today. From China to the SF Bay Area took 11 days. Not bad at all; with not customs hold up. Great packaging from Baba and no issues with the figure. I will keep buying from the dojo to support local business, but, I think the Baba store is a good option.

    Just got my Dunerider/runner, and I'm looking for some help with the transformation:

    Transforming him to vehicle mode; the last step: I'm trying to plug those flaps that made up part of the feet in bot mode onto the bottom of the vehicle. No matter how hard I push, they don't want to stay tabbed in. So now I'm not getting clearance for him to roll in vehicle mode.

    Anyone have any idea what I'm doing wrong?

    Thanks!
