    It stands out more on the metallic version. This is due to the grey on metallic version is darker. So it contrast more with any silver paint

    I don't think it's the transit time that's the holdup in the States, it's customs.

    Got mine today, but the chrome version!! Took 41 days from Showz to the US, not that I was impatient or anything. Gp is worth the wait. This was the longest wait I've had, but it wasn't Showz's fault, as stated above it was customs. Other Showz purchases I've had averaged 7-14 days.

    Superator tho... legit.

    I think this trade spat between US/China is making things take longer to be shipped, actually surprised we aaren't getting notifications saying we need to pay more to get them out of Customs jail.

    The ball socket on the metallic is not painted. Better i guess without need to worry about paint chip.

    If you're any good at knocking out pins, I think you can just swap the fingers around.

    All the grey on metallic version is darker.

    And yeah... That white peg... I mean that peg is chromed on the chrome version and doesn't seem to stick out like that. Not sure why it's white instead of grey here

    On the metallic version do the dino claws still work their way out when you rotate them?

    Never bought any of MP Dinobots, but I am thinking of picking this up. I can never decide between metallic and chrome for the dinobots though (my gripe with chrome is the metallic ruby red, which does not appeal to me). The metallic gold looks a bit dull though in the comparison pic (and lighter than the promo pictures).

    @ckchan: Will you do some dino mode comparisons as well?

    So I put the clear chest piece on and decided I want to try a different insignia.... is it possible to remove it lol? I don't want to break the tabs that hold it on, seems tight.

    I'm another that's used Show-Z before. They always seem to get it over to me in London incredibly fast so I've been happy with them.

    Random question - So what's the hole in his arm for? In his bot mode, he has a hexagonal hole on each arm which LOOKS almost like it's meant to be able to hold something put into there - similar to Grassors guns tabbing into his arms. But there's no extra accessoriies that can seemingly be put in them. :confused2 

    :eek: :eek:  It's the opposite with me. I LOOOVE the cherry red they use on the chrome ones so much. They're so pretty.

    I believe it was meant for the rocket launcher like his g1 toy. I did ask gp before regarding it and they said they MAY produce the rocket launcher later.
