    I buy from TFSource because once my stack hits $150 for free shipping and I place an order, I live close enough to their distribution center that I generally get my orders the next day.

    toydojo ships for free as well. i was just asking because they are like the first retailers in the states to get this or just about every other new bot. but i always hear about the other stores more.

    He is quite expensive on taobao. He costa about twice as much as jazz. Or a about as much as both racing bros.

    @Truong3016 any chance of a picture of him with CW Sunny or one of his mold mates, please and thank you?

    Mine is with DHL and they're going to hand it off the USPS. I don't know why TF Source would do it that way but oh well...

    Is it possible to remove the wheels from any of these figures? I want to know if I could switch out the wheels on G2 Sideswipe.

    The wheels on the “Racing Brother” molds are technically removable as I believe they are just flat head pins, though I wouldn’t actually suggest removing them if you don’t have experience with it.

    As for Heavy Metal, I don’t have one yet (T-T) but it looks like there is a cover over the pin head. Depending on how that is attached will determine if it is removable or not. Without destroying the wheels mind you.

    I’m going to have trouble deciding which mode to display him in, he looks so good in both.

    On his way!

    I stepped outside MS/DX9 territory because this figure is awesome. It occurs to me that during a fight he could grind his wheels on enemies. Something a lot of TFs could do during hand to hand combat since they generally have 2 to 18 wheels. Or throw them at the enemy as a last resort...
