    both my copy have loose hand, the holding hand, which is the only hand transformable.
    And the from the reviewẻr, samething happen. So it is manufacturer issue, not quality check problem. Sent a new fig won't fix

    It used to be that when an eBay seller has a low item price and a high postage price, it was because eBay's fees were only charged on the sale price of the item itself - I don't know if that's still the case. There's a few sellers with Kallaite on AliExpress, BTW, filter category to Toys and Hobbies to find them.

    There is but it's not Bludgeon. Think it's more of a Banzaiatron. Might still go for it though.

    That's a bummer, I snagged one from Toy Dojo not too long ago, but they were low stock.

    I had passed on Bludgeon for awhile but I finally snagged one of the last ones that Toydojo had. They were not the last ones with stock when I looked but they were the only one I saw that wasn't charging a giant late tax. Got mine yesterday and it's pretty cool. I don't know if I'd want it if I had to pay a premium for it but the finish they did for it is really nice. Would be nice if they did this weathered look for other figures. That could be a whole other category of repaints. Didn't get XYZ character, here he is with a nice gritty look instead.

    My Phantoscope arrived today as well. I can’t believe how great he looks next to Sky Lynx. I know it’s not canon - but it’s now canon for me that he’s part of the team along with Astroworks.

    Also, the joints are still tight. This little mold just won’t quit :)

    As I posted over in his thread, if you want him with your autobots, just call him Stormshot - Transformers Wiki

    hey gang...i found an extra jazz that i accidentally forgot about.

    it is still nice and minty and never opened or touched.

    if anyone needs one just let me know. it will easily be cheaper than RTB and fleabay.

    Got the Datsun bros from a fellow board member for a decent price considering the aftermarket. They’re cool little figures, and I appreciate the amount of accessories too. Can’t recall what Bluestreak and Smokescreen looked like in the comics, but I’m pretty sure they didn’t look identical to Prowl, so I tried to vary their appearance; but I’m glad they give you options. Tolerance-wise they’re good, aside from Bleustreak’s shoulders and elbows, they will need a little shock oil. Backpacks seem to tab on securely too, which is nice.
    Glad to have them added to the collection, especially Prowl since he was a more prominent character in 2005 IDW.
    I also found Starscream on eBay, and did indeed buy it…wasn’t cheap, but the seller offered $25 off, which helped.
