    Weird, both of my Roritchis (and my Fasttracks) roll just fine. What's preventing the wheels from hitting the ground on yours?

    Really? This makes me wonder if I mistransformed him. I'll give it another go shortly.

    Basically the bottom of the tank was slightly lower than the wheels. It wasn't that noticeable to the extent of looking bad sitting on the shelf as it's barely a millimeter, if that, but enough that he'd be sliding down Scorpy/BZ's ramps instead of rolling down.

    I converted Black Roritchi again earlier and.... yeah, he's making me out to be a liar in my previous post. He does roll fine.

    There isn't much clearance though. I noticed this time that when you fold his legs, there was one extra click where the thighs go into his lower legs. I think I somehow missed it last time.

    A bit embarrassed that such a thing didn't occur to me then. It's quite firm without that extra click, so maybe that's why. :oops: 

    Or I'm just a bit stupid. :rolleyes:

    Black Zarak preordered. No problem in waiting for this. It can take it's time and I'm excited about adding this. I’m happy my extra space was reserved for another him and the upcoming Fans toys combiners

    Christ on a bike, I got him for 110 with the TDW kit at around January. Japanese sites also have him for an asinine amount of money too.

    I mean really, just make the G1 with extra articulation. It was not a difficult idea. Not sure why it wasn't done in the first place.

    This one of the reasons I often don't entertain the argument of "don't update old toys that still hold up" many of them are impossible to get.

    I'd back that and if there was an option for Brave Maximus I would buy that over standard Fortress Maximus. Maybe both if I have enough money.

    Yeah, one really needs to buy these sorts of toys when they're in production, especially if they're limited editions/releases or you're fairly certain they won't be trotted back out to market any time soon... if not ever.

    Hell, I haven't even taken my Baldigus out of the shipping box, but it's occupying space under my desk for when I clean out my pig sty of a room some day.

    EXACT same. Baldigus is still in the shipping box here too. So is Grand Maximus.

    I actually got UW Defensor for 50 in the brown box, but shipping costs bumped it to 90

    Pardon the bump on the thread guys..

    Since that DNA Designs have the 3rd party kits for the Scorpy version, who would be getting the kit(s) for Black Zarak if it gets made?

    Anyone else in the same boat? I'll most likely pick up a set (maybe all two if it looks decent).:D
