    My preorder fell through, I'm so bummed right now. Hopefully there will be a restock at some point.

    My new fave snap of him. Loving the earpiece vibe there, @Momobots

    "Yeah. Roger that. I'm at The Hall of Heroes now <<over>>
    Just organising a runthrough for tonight.
    He's just trying on the shoulders pads, then a crown fitting as we speak.
    Looks a prick <over>"

    He looks great and I can't wait to get him in hand. But, is anyone other than me disappointed that his blaster is not purple? I know his blaster was grey in the cartoon but there is SO much grey... They toy was purple :p  Just a thought. Not trying to start a debate.

    I was thinking Irritated Conglomerate or annoyed LLC but yeah, that definitely has a better ring to it. I bet they know just what I need.

    Indeed. They might just have the thing. What would you pay to see it?

    Hm... aparently I'd pay $220 plus shipping. That should satisfy their greed.

    Unless there's another song I don't know about, I'm pretty sure you're thinking Soul Asylum. Was my favorite song for a few months when I was sixteen and the first time I ever bought a CD single. Something about it just spoke to me and I've always been a fan of songs built on clever wordplay.

    No problem - anything like this or extra parts in the box with no instructions as to what they are (xtb andras with apollyon mace adaptor) sends me nuts too.
    I wouldnt worry too much - TFS Express are a fantastic retailer, and i cant think ive had a single issue over years of using them.

    For the thruster section tabbing in, you probably have the arms misaligned making the tab holes too small. Try opening them outwards on the shoulder rotator joints just slightly to make the tab holes slightly bigger.
    I had to mod those lower knee ratchets slightly, but i dont like over tight ratchets.
    You may have the lower ratchet in a different position, pushing the thighs against the shins more, thus pushing the leg straight. Thanks for the angled photos, i will have a look later.
