    So my Thomas just came in from Heat Toy. $328 shipped because I didn't PO. My knees can't do the straight 180 they either bend forward or back but they're both even in the too forward or back so I guess I'm satisfied. Best TF to be released this year and great way to end a crappy 2020

    If both kness are bent you could swap both ratchets over and then have straight legs.

    Mine came from Heat Toy today as well. I don't normally like to post the token "got him" but it took less than a week from when I placed my order to ship to here in Australia. At the moment all other providers taking around 6-8 weeks.

    Obviously paid a premium but just wanted to give them a shout out for the prompt service. My tracking didn't initially work and I got a reply to my enquiry quite quickly too.

    I gave in! Why? I really don't know. Maybe I'm just dumb. LOL! Made an order. Should actually be here either tomorrow or Saturday. Praying that it's in great condition. Not like I can do anything about it if it's not since it's not from an actual retailer. I know FT doesn't have parts available right now but in the event that something is wrong and I need help, what are the chances they'd be willing to help out being that I didn't order directly from a retailer? Do they send directly to customers or only directly through retailers?

    Received my copy from baba yesterday. Haven't had time to mess with him but I did want to get him in the display next to Gewalt.

    Same. It says that it's scheduled for delivery tomorrow, but it'll probably show up on Monday.

    I'm in central TX so it'd probably be a few more days till it makes it around this way.

    Just got him today and can't stop looking at him. Like he knows I'm being creepy.

    Had to add some Shock Oil to the fingers and right ankle cuz they were tight af and some Kiki fluid to the right shoulder that was super loose, but no paint chipping or anything I can see.

    Just a heavy/sexy bot. I don't know what to make of the leg issue, but he's so grey (gray?) that its hard to notice.

    There really is no way Megatron, Starscream, Devastator, the Insecticons etc all fit inside him in the movie is there?

    My package arrived today. So far so good. Everything looks to be in good shape. Don't see any issues thus far. Guess I won't need to worry about any help from FT. May not have liked the price I paid for it but overall, I'm super impressed with the overall look and feel of this figure and am really glad to have it be apart of my collection.

    They look so good together, gewalt is so bulky and tough looking which matches so well with Thomas. Other Blitzwings look so meh in comparison. These guys look like total powerhouses.

    I think Thomas looks like Gewalts smaller brother on this pics. IMO they don't really fit togheter.

    Let's wait for Berserk :D

    I hope Berserk is a bit bigger than Thomas. I like big bots!
