Got my last two pieces from tfsource. Will assemble a set and the others in individual robot forms
Got Overbite but missed Tentakil. Time to hit the streets to see if I can find him a decent price...
These posts present a painful paucity of Poseidon pics...
So good or bad? How's your copy's knee and combiner components holding up?
Definitely worth the wait. Also, the rubber tape added to the bottom of the feet work wonders.
Rubber tape to keep him from sliding? What type do you use?
The stuff I used was 3M's Temflex rubber splicing tape, though any rubber tape can do I think.
Simple yet effective way
I've always used museum putty. It's worked well so far, but I'm going to give the tape a try as the putty always has to be repositioned when you move the figure.
So am I correct in guessing I'm to late on these guys? I finally got the funds for these guys and ordered Overbite but I can't find anyone selling the other five for a reasonable price.
Pretty likely you're too late. If Pulse follows their pattern, there might be another - smaller - shot at Tentakill and Overbite, but I'd be surprised if there's another round on the others, at this point.
Thanks, well Overbite has just become an instant regret purchase and he hasn't shown up yet. Had they been cheaper I would of jumped on them sooner, that's one subgroup not being completed I guess.
I mean, there's still a chance, so don't give up hope yet. Just being realistic, it's an ever-decreasing chance.
Too late most likely, but there is an alternative option of the God Neptune repaint.
I'd rather Hasbro just re-release these on the American market (at 20 & 30 dollars respectively) then go for a repaint I have no care for and has no place in my collection.
If it's any solace, you're just about right on time for the BWII repaints. May as well be a lesson for me and the other folks who neglected to hold onto pre-orders.
Just to clarify: would you be looking for the rest for LESS than they originally retailed for, now?
Fair, but a domestic hasbro release outside of the pulse imports is unlikely. If hasbro intended to release them
Domestically they wouldn’t have opted for the import route in the first place
Preferably less, the 35 dollars for a limb and 60 for a torso was a big turn away for me when the other combiners were 20 dollars for a limb and 25 to 30 for the torso. But now that I have the money for them I'd go no more then retail price.
I can't say he's not floppy, but from some of the reviews I've watched, I think I got a pretty good copy overall. I wouldn't have left him in that running pose, but he is in it unassisted and without any kind of photographic trickery. Standing straight up wasn't possible, but the limbs also didn't detach from simply moving them around. He holds the weapons well enough, though I didn't even try Overbite, feeling certain that would be too heavy to hold up. Not rock-solid but also not so fragile I was afraid to touch him anywhere (that would be how I felt trying to pose God Ginrai!), I'm satisfied with him to the point that I might be changing my mind about buying God Neptune. Originally I was going to pass, but I enjoy the molds enough that I kind of want extra copies to keep in their individual modes, and I didn't go for any extras of King Poseidon.
