Still waiting on that Hot Soldiers Prime to come out. That fig is taking forever.
If I could actually find my GT set (I just moved) I’d take a pic.
Hey, thanks @Rewind - looks cool, but I forgot how tall that Prime actually is.
Is that world's smallest matrix prime?
It's the Matrix from X2's Giga Raiden. It's like half the size of Dutch's non-removable matrix. After shooting that photo I dropped it and spent a half hour searching for it. XD
On the topic of Giga Raiden, he's a decent enough figure, but damned if he works anything at all.
maybe he can work with that newish combiner wars megatron. i know he is a weird size as well.
Mine is waiting at the post office. I cant get it till saturday as Im tied up at work.
With the arrival of Hot Rod, my 'Legends +' 86 Movie crew inches closer to completion... Just need MFT (or someone) to put out an OS version of DX9 Blurr and I'm all set!
Wouldn't mind if someone like NewAge or Magic Square put out a Wheelie, but the 2008 Universe version works for now...
Hope we get MFT's Arcee soon. DX9 and Iron Factory just doesn't work for me.
Does anyone have any issues with stress marks or breakage? Just got mine today and the hinge pin for the sides of the hood/chest are super stressed out of the box and the orange piece inside the torso that the chest hinge folds down onto is cracked on one side. Everything holds together well without any looseness. Absolutely love the figure outside of that. If the one I got is the oddman out, I'll definitely grab another. Both modes are great and the transformation is fantastic
Mine had no stress marks that I can see, after one transformation from Bot to Alt then back to Bot.
So far, so good with mine.
Ok I caved and ordered this guy
I like them but yeah there's definitely room for improvement - has MFT announced an Arcee?
Yeah, it's been out for awhile now
Durp fixed it, that should say MFT Arcee
Supposedly they have one in the pipeline, but no idea if it's the DX9 or Iron Factory one yet.
From that description it sounds like whoever assembled yours forced the pin through carelessly which caused the damage. Mine is stress/crack free and operates smoothly. Definitely try another!
As much as I enjoy IF's take on Arcee [I own 3 copies of the original figure plus the Black deco version, the Elita retool, the Nightbird retool...], I really hope that MFT uses the DX9 version as the basis for their release... with some improvements, of course.
She just fits in with the G1 aesthetic of the existing Legends + '86 Movie' figures that have been released by MFT and Papa much better than the IF version [which is based on the IDW look, as I understand it]. She's also not a bad little figure by any means, just a bit 'plain'. The current DX9 figure actually fits into my L+ collection fairly well, since I always thought that she was WAAAY too tall for a standard Legends-sized line-up [there is no version of my personal TF head-canon in which Arcee is significantly taller than Kup and Blurr].
