the only loose joint i have thus far is the dino toe but not a big deal
Mine is STILL sitting in Customs… Since May 7th, 11am.
Get a Move On, d@mmit!!!
That's completely normal. Almost every shipment I have from china spends six to ten day in Customs before it hits my local Post.
Oh, I know…
But I got a bit spoiled with my last 2-3 orders. They were In & Out of Customs within 3-4 days!
Unfortunately, I also know, its allowed to sit there for up to 30 days… I just hope it doesn't come to that.
Someone's looking for that as a B-Day gift at the end of the month!
Nothing will ever beat how fast I got my GP Metallic Sludge from ShowZ last year. I fully paid for it on a Sunday then it arrived Friday (or Saturday) the following week. Totally caught me off guard and thought I was getting pranked lol
(Unfortunately not so much for Swoop.)
Got my metallic blue bird today. What a beast! No paint chipping whatsoever. Now to decide if it can replace my FT Soar.
Bigger than Soar
And JUST like that... BOOM!
Updated to ARRIVED in my city today!
I should see him TOMORROW!!!
Thinking of getting metallic red since I had a red swoop growing up.
I'd think you'll find the answer to be a resounding "YES!".
Anyone have a chrome one that been chipping causing enough frustration to wanna sell it ??
The Toes are a bit loose but it not even a problem. My copy is perfect.
Opening him during lunch at work!
Deskbot, here we come!!!
I actually did see someone in the sales thread with one, but someone beat me to it
Maybe someone else will end up not liking and buying the metalic instead hahaha
Would u be able to post a few pics conparing the Metalic and Chrome versions? I havnt seen any side by side and just curious how different the main colors are besides the obvious chrome lol... thank you!
This bit is... what I’ve come to expect from Giga... Absofuckinglutely gorgeous!!!
Sturdy, well built, paint is beautiful.
Can’t wait to get him on my shelf with his brothers!!!
Keep your "Pew-Pew" gun sounds down @ your cubicle.!! Haha Congrats and can't wait to get mine this week.
You really are from the Nati LOL
Blue Metallic left, red chrome right
the red paint on the metallic version looks more glossy than the chrome version
the gray on the thigh is darker on the metallic version
the wire details are all painted on flat gray, which stick out on the chrome version
some parts on the wing is also flat gray, which again looks more obvious on the chrome version
the red is deeper and more glossy on the chrome version
the gray on the face is darker on the metallic version
here, the red is deeper and more glossy for the metallic version
clear transparent beak vs smoked transparent beak
on the heel, the metallic version sits flush in line with the feet. but the chrome version, the heel can be over rotated. This is due to the back of the feet which the metallic version have a thicker piece to keep the heel in place
