    You know how at first Copter was stated as end of October for release, then the websites started listing end of the year (December). And now Copter is actually coming out in October. With this teaser I am hoping that the figure actually estimated to release in December is Groove! Hopefully by then we'll have more images of First Aid and Hot Spot!!

    Hey everyone, GT-8B Katana has arrived! We will be processing these today along with the laundry list of other items that showed up.

    One note on this figure, there are a lot of small panels and tabs that could be problematic, so please be careful with your copies.

    If you have not already, get your copy at the link below.

    If some kind soul were to photograph Copter in altmode next to an MP seeker, also in altmode, I'd be very grateful.

    You can combine the swords to make two double-edged blades.

    Got mine this morning. Transformation is pretty easy once you've got the flow of it. The way the sides of cockpit folds up on themselves for bot mode isn't the most secure, but it works. There are some scarily thin pieces of plastic on this guy, so take care.

    Man what were they thinking with the range on the hips? Aside from unpainted eyes it's the single biggest sore spot on an otherwise excellent looking figure.

    Super pumped to pick this figure up. Hoping the 3rd figure is going to get released before CNY since the colored test shot they showed looked close to final. BTW, Baba on his ebay page was carrying Copter, then seems removed. Sold out that quick? -_-

    interesting, one last question, can he hold the double-edged blades or does the doubling then become to big of handles to fit in his hands?

    Haven't tried it yet, but it looks like the tab for the hand is too big doubled up like that.

    I am still waiting for Hotspot to decide if I buy 1 or 2 sets... The only thing that worries me a bit is how the combiner hips work...

    Yeah, I feel ya. My Gravity Builder turned out ok. So i'm hoping this set will be at least better to some degree in terms of stability. I already love the design, so at worse, I'll combine and keep in some sort of cool static pose and call it a day. :)
