    Good job, nice that you were able to fix it yourself, and make it better.

    How long should it take to go from China to NYC? I ordered from TF Safari and they shipped on the 15th. According to tracking it left China on the 17th but there hasn’t been any update since. I know I should be patient but I’ve ordered from Japan, China, Taiwan and Singapore before and never had to wait this long. Is this a normal wait, and I’ve just been really lucky in the past?

    You also have to consider it's the CNY period right now.

    I know but according to the tracking, it left China on the 17th. So that’s a week before the start of the celebration.

    He's small compared to what I expected him to be next to the limbs - especially considering it forms most of the combiner body - he seems smaller than say Warbotron or Unique toys Onslaught - that may just be a first impression - I litteraly just got him i've only inspected the tray he'd still in the box still. I'll have a better idea once I can compare him with other team leaders if he is actually small - also I need to transform his legs from packaging mode to proper mode that may make a bit of a difference too.

    Nah I just took out the original Warbotron Onslaught (not the OS Jinbao version).

    It's very very short when compared to this OS Vulcan. Yeah the mistransformed legs might've given u the wrong impression.

    Yeah, not too shabby. I like the sculpting on this guy quite a bit. It's very clean and heroic. The set's pretty awesome, but I still don't really like Groove. He's just really freakazoid and kibbley. The combiner is a a handful, getting everything tabbed in right and arranged, but then again the tabs and the connections are there and they work well, so I am not complaining.

    Wish he was a bit bigger combined, but the individual bot modes are just about perfect for my MP collection. It will definitely stand in well unless and until something a little bigger comes along...

    Thanks for that. :) 

    Looking at the sizes, he doesn't seem much bigger than TFC Prometheus, really. Not sure it'd be worth learning the wacky world of Taobao to acquire the full set.

    Does look nice, though...

    Yeah, it's sorta weird... I'm glad I have it, I really like it, but I probably would not have bought it if I had known in the beginning what its proportions were going to be.

    So the original Warbotron will be roughly same size as him.

    Have to bear in mind that the original sizes for all the Guardia limb bots were scout sized TFs.

    With regards to Groove, he seems to be the odd one out of the rest, aesthetically he looks more like a naked Bayformers bot. All gangly endoskeleton-ish. But it's a bit strange..when I first got him, I really hated his design and barely fiddled with him. But now since the arrival of Vulcan, I've got more time to play and transform him.. somehow I'm ok with him lol

    Yeah, it's pretty much exactly what I was expecting, but I bought a set anyway hoping it could pass standing on a shelf with my other oversized stuff. It probably would be okay with my Jimbao Predaking, but not with these other guys.

    Still... it's a great set, and since I already own them, and since there's nothing better... I'll hold onto it and admire it for what it is.... Beautiful. And like I said before, the individual Bot modes are scaled GREAT for MP display. It's just Defensor who is small. And so long as he is not right NEXT TO some other combiner, he is still going to look GREAT. Definitely worth the price to me.

    I got my vulcan in. First impressions hes solid and awesome, surprisingly stable too.

    I have 1 issue. The red torso area I cannot seem to keep them closed there is like small gap there. Do any of you have that issue.
    Cause others wanted a pic i have it near my ordin and with my favorite legends figs.

    Seems that way once, I got him out of the box and extended his legs he looks more like the size I was expecting him to be. even more so if yoy put the combiner feet on the side of his legs as added armour.

    So my second stage impressions are that he can't hold his gun and that some of the joints tend to move on their own a bit in the torso and might need a bit of attention to remedy that. Overall though I like what I see so far.

    Mine has the same issue with the red torso. Looking closely it is because one side is shaved down while the other side isn't which makes the left side fine while the right side won't close properly (At least on my figure).
