    Followup to my earlier post: Trent (the Shapeways designer of the Kings Claws set) got back to me super-fast (literally within hours of me contacting him!), has fixed everything, and will send me the redesigned version (free of charge) :thumb :thumb :thumb

    Neat. My fist combiner. Looking at my SGMF shelf I realized how many official Generations figures there are for this cast (a good thing!). Tentakill's 5mm port doesn't want to hold onto the foot. Not the most stable figure in combined mode (I understand that's not uncommon with CW related toys), and some really thin, little tabs on the individual bots (mostly for keeping a bot mode limb tucked out of the way in combined limb mode).

    Not sure I'm 'blown away', but I'm happy I have it. Maybe my lack of enthusiasm is from having a long day and feeling strung out. Regardless, here's the obligatory 'I have it, too!' pic... Pardon the picture quality/artifacting. Also, I wasn't trying to make it look like he wants to shake Ginrai's hand.

    Edit - one positive I didn't mention is the number of high quality paint apps all over the place. Great color matching. I especially like the subtle coral pink metallic they used on all the bladed weapons.

    Hoping tf source gets their shipments soon. I have 2 of each of the other waiting to be released. Combiner wars was expensive for me. I got 1 of each to display in bot mode and a set to display as a combiner. I pretty much have everything except a second set of the botcon combiner and ruination.

    Seawing and Nautilator will be here Friday.

    Since people are now receiving Overbite and Tentakil, I hope they go up for order soon.

    It's pouring rain here today, perhaps it's appropriate a shark will be waiting at my door?

    At the end of the day the customer is still getting a raw deal. More chances of orders getting messed up. Easier to hide one package at your home than multiples. Just makes me wonder why they haven't gotten around to solving this. Is it a box size problem? Why haven't they invested in larger, branded shipping boxes already...?

    Still just the morning but I hope my Overkill ships today.

    It's primarily preorders that always get shipped individually, I've had in stock orders that got packed together

    When it comes to pre-orders, Pulse seems to open up a fresh crate of the new toy and pack them all. Then they open up a crate of the next toy and pack them all. That would be why you get one seacon shipped in the morning and another shipped in the evening. I wonder if their warehouse isn't large enough to have a workspace to stockpile orders to the side while they continue to open up new stock.

    Maybe because I ordered it after the release date but my Snaptrap and Scalor came together.

    My large pulse order was split into five since preorders of various dates. However the first part which was all in stock even shipped separately lol. I thought they forgot to pack one item but they shipped two boxes at the same time and used slower shipping on the smaller one of them...

    Yesterday I had 5 pulse boxes in transit at the same time with was all one order I placed....

    Maybe they just got a really good deal on a shitload of smaller boxes so it ends up being economical for them.

    Technically, given it's the takara version of the character, it is neither male nor female since it is a drone
