    Ah got it! I'm a little slow on the uptake this morning o_O  Yeah, It sure beats the keychain I got on my last "scam"! I'd actually love to keep it if I didn't already have one since it's sold out on their website.

    That is extremely unfortunate but I knew I had heard people waiting years for parts and through ShowZ that mentioned the other day that Gigapower is easy getting replacement parts from! I'm glad I don't need anything from them, but there's a few parts I'd like to buy if I could, I've accepted that will never be an option.

    Got mine today, along with DS Starscream. In looking forward to putting through his paces this weekend but I at least managed to get him out of the box today. Giga Dinos 3/5 complete.

    Has anyone done any doctoring on the dino head to try to make the eyes a little less...whatever they are that doesn't look right.

    Got this guy in a few days ago from Show.z since he was a good price.

    Wasn't all that interested in him, really, but I figured "What the hell? If I don't like him, I'll pawn him off." Once I handled him, though, I was shocked at how much I liked him. In fact, after messing with him for a bit, I actually preferred him to Graviter.

    That lasted all the way until I pulled Graviter out to compare the two.

    Stomp is one impressive figure, for sure, but next to Graviter he just looks....less. He just seemed to shrink when I put them together. Graviter even tried to make him feel better...

    I think he might have made things worse.

    "Ya got a light, buddy? AND your wallet!"

    "That's not a gun. THIS is a gun"

    Stomp: "........."
    IMG_8059.JPG

    "Ya can't just go around whippin' that little thing out everywhere. You'll shoot your eye out, kid."
    IMG_8054.JPG

    Graviter: "Hey, where ya goin'?"
    IMG_8060.JPG
    Stomp: "Grinder says my gun is just the right size, jerk."

    I know these comparisons have been done to death, but the size and presence difference is so much more noticeable in hand. Speaking of hands, the fact Graviter can do this....

    ...just adds to the ways he can express poses.

    I'll probably hang on to Stomp (I got the Soar reissue as well at the same time) and get the other 3 FT offerings for dino mode if they're rereleased as I definitely prefer their head sculpts for Sludge and Slag because who knows if Giga is going to complete the Weathered line. But, in my opinion, Stomp is an absolute stud....as long as Graviter is nowhere near him.
