    I bought the standard release reissue due to having to sell my first release one for emergency expenses and I must say I actually like it better in alot of ways. Mostly in the joints as they are much better than before and zero QC issues which I had with the original release. [​IMG] Lol I know it's hard to ignore but my awesome wife bought me a crochet Tarn and it also came with a personalized note which I also put in my display, Slipstream is..well her favorite transformers character, that's why that's at the end of the note lol anyway now I'm rambling, just wanted to say it's a good reissue!

    This is definitely one case of good things coming to those who wait.

    Do the fingers pop out easy or are they firm in place?

    I cancelled my order for this. I can't spend that much and have issues. It's unfortunate because I was looking forward to it

    I ordered the original release version and it has sturdy joints and working lights with red eyes and and no paint chipping so maybe that really would be a better option for you.

    Hello everyone! In case you are not aware of something I just discovered and confirmed with Flame Toys then I am glad to inform you of a wrist joint function I was not aware of until recently, so usually the wrist according to instructions can move vertically up and down, however there is also a horizontal joint hidden within the forearm that can be pulled down to allow horizontal articulation in the wrist. This is not stated in the instructions but I did confirm it with Flame Toys. Here are photos showing what I mean:

    If you look closely you can see that the wrist with the weapon attached is in it's base position however the other photo shows that the wrist is turned towards the figure and that is the joint I am talking about. You just have to carefully pull down the hand but not too much that the hand comes off until you see a black portion pull down and then you can freely move the joint horizontally. Quick Update: Also to note as I looked further into the part that comes down, it is a hinge joint that is attached to a circular swivel that turns clockwise and counterclockwise that can make the desired effect and position with the wrist. Also here is a photo of my Tarn on Display: [​IMG]
