    He's a head shorter than MP-10 in one of the pics in the first post, so looks like AOE leader sized.

    I dont care about any shortcomings he might have, this figure looks amazing! He's better scaled than previous classics jetfire and (IMO) the super parts just make him look more badass! Anticipating this one SOOO much! :D

    I like him, but I'll be making a fill-in kit for all those hollow spots. They're terrible.

    That's cool. Thanks for trying it out, too. I just saw all the feet inset in all the pics and I was wondering if it could actually do it. That's cool that it can, I like it even more now :)

    Do the wing swivels have ratchets or detents?

    Nothing like the VF25s DX Chogokins. It is just a swivel.

    Looks like I'll be doing some gap-filling on his arms and thighs, at least, but he looks great!

    Well..I just received an email.


    ME
    Hello,
    Im interested in placing an order, but I seen the address is located in an apartment. I just wanted to make sure this is a legitimate business, and if you have any feedback from customers.

    Thanks!

    Dave Lovelock

    Hi Dave!



    Thank you for contacting me. I have two reviews of my customer service and business practices on the main index page of my website. The people have initials to protect their identities but they are real people. If you get in touch with me on facebook, (mroakley2379) I can have people vouch for me.



    I do run the business out of my home. I’m very open about that. I’m also very open about the location of my apartment complex. If you run me through google maps or mapquest, it shows a location about a half mile south of me. If you require the exact coordinates to put into Googlemaps, I’m willing to give them to you.



    If there’s anything else I can do to help assuage your fears let me know!



    Sincerely

    Martin R. Oakley

    well...at that price..its pretty good deal. Just wanted to report back. I never heard of that company before, and I got Scammed HARD from these boards once.

    He says he is very open about his business, so I posted the reply here. If he is Legit, then mabye a fellow Michigander will start getting some business. Hopefully its all legit.

    EDIT- Oh, and I did ask about ship dates, but im waiting on that reply.

    Dude, these are legit complaints. For some they're deal breakers for others non issues but that doesn't change the fact that they ARE there.

    This figure is clearly not perfect and that's disappointing. I'll grab him but its sad as i can see the potential for pure gold in this design.

    Hopefully, the Takara version will have better plastics, but the likelihood is pretty low I think.

    Oh, I think he is. I think he will really sell. I just have my voyager Classics Jetfire and I'm really happy with it. As nice as he is, he's not so nice I feel the need to drop $40+ for a new Jetfire.

    Well, if his plan was to drum up interest in his new company by taking a loss on a popular, controversial figure then it's working. I just placed an order. I like how he's very up front with the October delivery thing (though that wait will suck). Not so crazy about the fact that the date is thus out of Paypal protection range. Keep us posted if you hear anything useful in your reply, and thanks for doing the legwork on this.
