    Really hoping we see Merak released soon. I’d love to ship my POL.

    I didn't forget it, I excluded it. It should have been painfully obvious it was a joke.

    Take it easy on the dogpiling IMO. Y'all going a little too hard on the joke there.

    @Peaugh Sorry to bother you, but the male combiner pegs I see on the knees/shoulders have a nub on them to ensure that said knees/shoulders only come off when we want them to. The bicep combiner peg doesn't seem to have it, is this right? Is Tesaurus' arms being connected by friction to Helex's shoulders and does this feel stable? Sometimes in the early images from China or HK, they look like they're about to fall off. wotafa says that nothing really feels like it falls off easily, but I'd like your opinion as well, if it's cool.

    Someone named Kasper responded to my direct inquiry @ShowZStore regarding in-stock availability of Merak (IFEX-35). It apparently is NOT in stock yet, despite what their web site says.

    The arms stay on just fine, I haven't had any issues. I suspect that the legs have those pegs because the hips have pretty solid ratchets, so there's more chance of the lower leg being pulled off due to resistance, whereas the arms are smooth hinges so it takes less force to pose them. Regardless, it all holds together just fine.

    You can check out my full thoughts here:

    Nice TJ, I can't wait to hear your thoughts.

    Nice man, how long does it take for them to get stuff in usually?

    My Helex arrived minutes ago, and it is defective. It has two right arms.

    Good thing I bought from an Australian vendor rather than from a Chinese Ebayer, but this is still going to be a pain in the arse to make right (even if all it will take is for IF to send the vendor a new lower arm - hooray for parts-forming).

    Very disappointing; I went from "oooh, that's a hefty little package" to "fuuuuuuuck you Iron Factory" in the space of 10 seconds.
