    don’t get me wrong I’m perfectly happy with this version, it’s gonna satisfy my new SG/Dark theme collecting tastes LOL

    For some reason I thought the SG version only came with the guns instead of the dual swords, well I was pleasantly surprised!



    EDIT:

    was messing around with Drift yesterday, I did get this figure lightly used, if at all. I have noticed that his right leg is extremely stiff moving it out laterally, his other leg is just fine when pushing it through the range of motion. I'm scared to put too much pressure on the die cast joint for the right leg. Should I just slowly work it until it cracks loose? Also, the thigh guards have popped off, looks like the glue holding them was no good. I ended up with a scuff on his face that was touched up, unsure if the original owner did this or if this was a factory deal. Last issue is that his left toe is a bit loose as well.

    Overall though, he is pretty bad ass, and I can get by these small things as he is a new to me figure. Im thoroughly impressed with all the little nuances and details that he has, its pretty amazing what they can cram into a figure this size. Its all in the details and the paint apps, the moving parts, man he is definitely worth the money. I just wish that all of the 3K lineup was in the $250-300 range, and not the $400+ we are seeing.


    I have 3K Megs on the way and SG Prime on pre-order I will expect perfection from them because they are new and full price lol.

    Some pics! Still earning to pose him, so bear with me lol

    Any word on Rodimus? He’s supposed to be a June/July release so we should be getting really close.

    Given that we're still waiting on more Victory Leo news, and he was originally slated for May, we should probably assume than any previous date assumptions are scuffed at this point.

    It appears Model SG Drift release is delayed until July 1 (according to Amazon at least):

    My order still shows “Arriving today by 10PM” but it has not shipped so I am expecting a delay email later today or tomorrow.

    SG Drift arrived in my POL at BBTS, pretty happy about that. Eager to build the thing finally. Hopefully Rodimus arrives soon too

    Are there any news regarding the release dates of Victory Leo and The Fallen?

    Both have a release date of June 2021 but I have a hard time imagining that two Kuro Kara Kuri figures are released in the same month. :D

    If anyone wants a Kuro Kara Kuri SG Drift, I have one to sell. Just tested his joints and electronics and he’s good.

    I wonder if SG Prime will keep its August 2021 release window since Victory Leo and The Fallen have been delayed for a couple of months.

    looms awesome though. I think I like the gray thighs an pelvis on the SG Prime color scheme better. Also green eyes would really pop on this paint job.

    Is it likely Flame toys would release the Furai Action Primal as an all Plastic kit?

    I'm not really into posable statue type toys, only really love model kits. And the design is pretty much perfect. I think this is their first Furai toy only released as Furai action so no track record to speak of. I imagine there a lot of folks like me

    I feel the same way as you. I know the US market is more into toys than models, but this would have timed the release perfectly with the kingdom figures. It is a weird decision indeed.
