    No offense and not to sound condescending, but let me attempt to "translate from Dutch":

    "I think what will be even more impressive is if the terrain has different levels and forms part of the background, cos that requires way more effort."

    ;)

    Just got my Swindle. Haven't transformed him or anything yet but (don't know if it's just my copy) I thought I'd note that the face is quite simple to remove- should be easy for those that want to paint this version's face to be a more accurate grey.

    So why didn’t we get an alternative face with salesman grin then?

    That's a good point- here's hoping it means they'll include extra stuff later down the line (but seeing how they've been handling these bots, probably not)

    The poor international economy is affecting everyone. Many of us are buying less, and companies are making cutbacks

    Shipment mail from Showz's received.

    I lost almost all my interest in these but hey maybe I enjoy it, will se.

    It's a plus that the face is easy to take off I may attempt to paint it.

    Well sorry to offend people I am really just suprised that people would settle for something so simple in a diorama.
    And I do not spend much on it, it is not about the money you spend but the time you spend on it.
    Little more details, some highlights in different tones and this base would have looked so much better.
    I spend so much on my collection, why settle for display ?.

    My swindle shipped this morning from Show.z !! Very excited to get him in hand, maybe the face won’t be as noticeable.

    If I’m able to get my guy to duplicate parts at a reasonable price, I’m gonna need a couple volunteers to send pieces to my guy in Texas (or I’ll have to buy every figure twice and ship them to him to he can have every part).
    This isn’t immediate, my brawl is packed away for a move next week- but I’m ordering a new brawl and swindle which will give my both styles of feet. When we get to onslaught I’m gonna need someone to send the toy parts for duplication.
    Anyone wanna help out?

    This is good news for me because all I wanted was the gray face with my toon. Now I might just end up painting it. :)

    No offense taken here. Your idea for an ideal display differs from theirs, and it's a valid opinion. Is it flat, not very detailed, or intricate? Yes, but it's trying to replicate a cartoon. The colors are vibrant, the background is crisp and bright, and the minimal shading detail replicates an animation cell in 3d. The space is open and uncluttered to accommodate multiple combiners in the scene (eventually). I think it looks pretty good myself assuming that was the look they were going for.
