    I saw someone mentioned Galva Convoy up-thread, and I gotta agree. Standard colours are neat, the EVA's fun but Xerc's don't really do much for me

    Now, they do a run of this in black and purple, and I'm all in (Especially considering the only official ways to get Galva Convoy are, y'know, limited edition Lucky Draws or the rather small Botcon convention class exclusive)

    Just got the Eva version from zpdlna802 on e-Bay (one of my very few non-Bababobo e-Bay purchases in a while), and it's about what I expected. A decent KO, but not great. The guns fit in his hands OK, but remind me of how Columpio held his gun, so kind of loosey goosey. Still glad I was able to track one down for a decent price, since the original one I pre-ordered last year never came.

    I like to position the giant shoulder pad kibble to the back. And here, it's hiding behind the wings.

    I also nabbed one of these. The right front paw broke right out of the box. The joint was frozen when I went to rotate it. I did manage to free it up and successfully glue it back on without issue.

    i got it, we need lio junior, i mean he's a real character and part of a combiner team so it would be less far-fetched to make him a combiner weapon than the gorilla jr

    Who's selling the KOs outside of eBay? I want to check if there is any word of the KO coming in Origin Xerxes deco.

    Guys, I’m thinking of picking this up - is the QC better or at least on par with the PE reissue?

    With Reprolabels. Pointy and so many little pieces keep tabbing off.
    But looks gorgeous.

    Just got my EVA deco in the mail a couple days ago.

    I'll be honest - at first I didn't like him. There were the usual parts that would pop off (shoulders, arm guards) that needed to be reattached. But that's nothing a dab of glue won't fix. The biggest issue I had was the articulation. I was disappointed there was no thigh swivel, and the feet just never seemed to balance when I posed him.

    After fiddling with the figure a bit, my mind has changed. It seems like the design here is an entirely different approach to articulation than a typical transformers figure. The feet, shoulders, etc... are a little more intricate in their articulations. Once I got used to this and started paying more attention, I realized I could get some insanely dynamic poses out of this figure. I love it now.

    The other thing that surprised me here was the HEFT of this figure. He's around the same size as my Ironhide MP, yet weighs waaaaay more due to all the diecast and solid parts. A very solid, hefty figure. Even the swords are die cast, solid, and hefty.

    My only remaining gripe would be the crossbow. On mine, the tolerance on it is SO tight that I cannot fold down the arms of the crossbow. I tried, very gently, with my fingers supporting the moving part, and could not fold the part into place. In fact, I got a white stress mark right next to the pin to reward my efforts. However, I had no intention of ever using the crossbow weapon, so I'm not too upset. I just left it in the package.

    [edit] - one thing of note: I have not transformed the figure. I have no intentions of transforming the figure. I just wanted a great EVA display piece that was the CORRECT color purple for my collection. He nails it.

    So... who are you displaying this guy with? I notice that the aesthetic and articulation make this figure stand out no matter who I pose him next to. What figures would look good on a shelf with Leonidas? Gundams?

    Gt primal looks good as does legends blackarachnia. The dx9 and gt t beast designs will all probably look good with leonidas since they all draw from the same source

    The transformation is so simply, it's probably just 5 or 6 steps. Just try it and u will enjoy more.
