    I saw. I was just hoping for a rough time frame since it looks like this and Iron Factory War Giant set B are coming in at the same time.

    Got my shipping notice from Kapow, should have mine Thursday.
    I'll be wary of QC issues, otherwise can't wait!

    Nope. Was not interested in the Cross Dimension line so never followed it. I was just shopping at robotoybase and he had Thunder Manus in stock so was going to get him but I thought I would check out reviews first.

    Plus Thunder Erebus didn't have the divine armour so that probably helped his proportions a bit more. Adding the divine armour bulks the mold up even more and that is what causes the head to look too small IMO.

    Timeframe is now...


    There's a difference in asking about when other stores would get it stocked.

    Way to be a jerk about it. Just cause you get the shit first doesn't mean you have to get snippy when someone ask about a release time frame or date.

    OMG! Your question was a broad statement... NA includes both US and Canada. You could have easily asked for one in your region. :) 

    How am I to know that you're not US based. LOL.


    EDIT:

    Just to clarify, the intent of the post was done in a jokingly manner. Sorry, if it offended you. :)

    No one can answer his question, as there are no solid release dates for 3rd party, just month guesstimates.
    Been buying 3rd party since 2014 and not one release, has hit or had its expected release date. The closest we get is release month.

    Both the eyes on the big robot and the little one are so recessed its difficult for light to get in and reflect off of them. But both have metallic paint aps. Appear to be a pale teal/blue on my copy.

    I'm US based too! LOL..I thought you were being serious and just being a dick. I may have also assumed you were from Asia as I'm on your FB page and saw the writing, which I admit I can't distinguish which country it comes from. Ok, scratch this up to misunderstandings and vagueness, and we start over?

    I was just trying to see if we were looking at a middle Feb to end of Feb date cause I think these releases are going to screw me over money wise as my pay date for the 2nd half of Feb and my billing dates are being a pain in the ass.

    More likely is that people are shoving products out the door as quick as they can before CNY. A one month break is pretty serious.

    Due to the cny holidays and expected backlog after business resumes, my taobao seller said I'll have to wait till early march before they can get back to me on the replacement part. Huge bummer.

    Not sure if I just got unlucky or there's a weakness to the design there. It could've been me using excessive force, but that peg by design is supposed to be pushed in and out by force...

    I have the same problem, every time I remove those pieces of armor the gray peg always comes off. Pheraps some glue can resolve.

    I really hope I don't have any issues. Waiting past CNY for replacement parts has gotta suck.

    He has arrived! A day earlier than expected at that!

    Initially, wow, amazing. After a few hours, still wow but a few issues. Tolerances are way way too tight. Already had to lubricate some swivels and in general, Erebus felt better, more polished. From any other company a home run but from Maketoys, 8.5/10 IMG_20180214_231835.jpg IMG_20180214_231839.jpg IMG_20180214_231841.jpg IMG_20180214_231857.jpg
