    I hope they keep up with quality control while trying to meet the deadline. I rather not have them trying rush production to reach that vacation. Like the old saying goes, don't bring your car to the auto mechanic late end of the week "such as Friday" because everyone rush the job trying to get out for the weekend.

    i hope they take all the time they need. to rush it at this point would be really stupid. they've paid for rushing in the past. nobody better be pressuring them to finish it in time.

    Hopefully the metallic version won't take too long to get released after the chrome one comes out.

    Me:Good day!
    Is chrome Gaudenter gonna be released first before metallic? If so, what is the tentative schedule?
    Will there be a reissue of metallic Grassor? Im one of those waiting for this..
    Thanks..
    GP:Hello, chrome Gaudenter is first. Almost finished, but not certain if he can make it before CNY. When the chrome version is done we will move to metallic. We are looking into Grassor reissue, hopefully it will be possible.

    ^Hopefully you're right. I'm still torn on which metallic version to go with though, red or blue, I'm leaning towards red.........

    I have my FT Dinos for bot mode and the GP Metallic version Dinos for alt mode. We just need GP to reissue Slag in the metallic color.........

    Thanks a lot! I was hoping there might've been some updates to the head.

    I've been a GP supporter since Day One, but I am not particularly fond of the head sculpt. I think it comes down to two things: 1. The grey brow section under the black helmet makes it seem like he's got two foreheads, I would prefer if the eyes were right under the helmet. 2. The face ends very abruptly, giving him a very unnatural look like he's tucking in his chin, this also removes any semblance of a neck on him. :( 

    Not sure if I'm in the minority in feeling this way.

    I have 0 photo editing experience, but here's a quick mock-up of what I had in mind vs the original.

    I don't know whether or not I should go with blue Swoop, or the red one once the metallic version comes out. I already have the blue FT Swoop, and I do like the blue better, but part of me is saying go with the red version so that GP set is just a little more different than the FT set is.

    I didn't have a problem with the head, but yours definitely looks better.

    I didn't have the G1 toy, so red Swoop to me is some kind of weird abberation. Get blue Swoop.

    And if that makes him too samey as FT's, sell the FT dinos.
