    Well, for someone like me who has always wanted an SDF-1, and not being able to afford the big ones from Yamato and skiping some of the smaller ones again because of price, this was a a godsend.

    Now, this is very different than the Metroplex / Omega / Scorp / Trypticon. It is much more basic in joints. No ratchets, no diecast, no lights, very low articulation, and transformation very simplistic (more than the rest). It is however very detailed (maybe more than the others) and I love the look, and comes with a stand, and two small veritechs (none transformable).

    I am personally happy i got him, filled a need and looks nice, but it is not for everyone, and not the cheapest toy either, but... it is best priced SDF-1 on the market by a long shot, so worth it for me.

    Good Luck

    I wish the front of the chest could had been swapped too. I think the bust torso was better than the original

    The "regular" sized head just makes him look like he got his head shrunk by a witch. Doesn't look right at all to me.

    Does anyone have either of Iron Factory's Scorponoks and can take a picture with this guy to see how they scale together? Base mode for both would be cool too but bot mode more important.

    Great figure. Unique and satisfying engineering. Definitely has the play set vibe (almost Lego-like) which works so well with these originally large scale play set characters. And the bust add-ons are really the cherry on top. Speaking of, couldn't figure out what the hell to do with that track split thing. I suspect it was never intended to be part of the alt mode and was only supposed to give you an option for fuller "wings" in bot mode but here's an unofficial idea I had, sorta evokes a shield array or sensor ring but giving a little nod to the original train tracks feature. Thought I'd share.

    I definitely see the parabolic dish or force field projector, but the wings could also be solar sails attaching to the rocket gauntlets, or maybe plain, ol’ solar paneling.

    @Charter57

    How are those threads attached to the figure (that you have as a dish)? Can you show some pics of that?

    Sure, just a little fiddling with the armature that pops out and unfolds from the lower legs, pic below...

    I FINALLY just got this guy on Friday. Always intended to but there always seemed to be something else that needed buying instead. I had handled one last year so I already knew how solid he is but man, being able to spend some quality time with this this reminds me how Master Made is on a completely different level than anyone else. In terms of robust build, artistic design and crisp finish I honestly can’t think of another company that is making or has ever made SD toys this nice. Action Toys comes close with their ES Gokin line but even those aren’t on the same level.

    Cannot wait for Fort Max and Devy.

    Damn you all. I fell for the hype and nabbed a used Apollo last week; and reading that he's out for delivery got me a bit giddy which caused me to re-read this thread and now I've ordered the upgrade bust without even getting Apollo himself in-hand. Damn you all!

    ...and now that I've played with him all night I see the hype is just fact. He's used and I'll need to go in and tighten a few joints here and there; but he's a spectacular action figure. I have to agree with the seeming consensus that MM had superb engineering skills on display with this guy but their electrical-wiring skills leave a lot to be desired; which I have to chime in with the bare wire inside his left shoulder's gearing being stripped as at least one of the reasons his chest light doesn't work. Eh, lights aren't a deal-breaker for me; but it'll be fun to tinker with improving him once the Bust Upgrade kit comes in.
