    INSANELY awesome! Best 3p figure ever in my book. Barring tolerance issues, what figure has been this glorious and stunning ever?

    it just occurred to me: Do you think it'll be back heavy in robot mode?

    i think that was an issue with the PE megatron and some people were basically using the wings as a kick stand.

    He looks to have a ton of die-cast in his legs, so he should be fine. Maybe.

    Also, that claw on his heel extends quite far back. Hopefully that will keep him stable enough.

    Price on Chinese taobao page is about 145$ so I think 170$ on JXT site is already including shipping fee

    Hmmm interesting, but I personally consider the faces as important as their relative size with respect to the body.

    I highly doubt the joints will be subpar after spending this much time on paint. Really looking forward to having this in my collection

    Check out the ankle articulation-
    So this is the regular standing position
    [​IMG]
    And it looks as though you can pull on the feet to extend a concealed joint which allows for a whole lot of extra ankle mobility

    I think this also means that what we may have assumed was a big, shiny diecast ball joint isn’t a joint at all but a housing for the joint which can be accessed when required. So at least there’s no risk of paint rubbing off. Hopefully it’s a sturdy system because there’s a whole lot of plastic to support on this guy.

    The pictures of robot mode will be released shortly, within this week. I hope it can give you guys some answers regarding to faces, die-cast, stability, strength of joint so we dont have to answer one by one.

    we are not only commercial toy maker, we are also fans of TF, BW.

    we worry your worries
    we want what you want

    He looks amazing, everyone who worked on this should be proud! Is TM 2 Dinobot planned for the future?

    Tm2 Dinobot was such an awful toy. I had him it was just...bad.

    I'd rather have Rampage and Depthcharge
