    Mine is just blocks away at the PO! Normally that would mean delivery tomorrow but since it’s Speedpak it could be another week. :lol

    Mine arrived as I was walking out the door on my way to work. I put him in my car so I can hopefully fiddle with him on my break.

    This guy is great! They made some wonderful improvements on the original. The way the chest moves when you move the arms is an unfortunate carryover from the original but it’s fine.

    I love how he looks with X2’s Prime:

    And with his buddy:

    My only qualm is that the Headmaster's arms don't move separately, otherwise I love this guy so far.

    I'll try to take some crappy cell phone pics tomorrow despite @Rewind beating me to it. :p ;)

    That bothered me until I noticed the face pulls right off and you can simply cut the little rod between the arms. :D

    CAUTION: they come out very easily after this surgery so I’ll have to thicken the ends to keep them from pulling out.

    Who did you order from?

    Sadly I don't alter my figures, but the temptation is certainly there right now. :lol

    I do wish he had more ankle tilt and outward arm movement.

    Regardless, bring on Weirdwolf MFT...

    Thanks! I’d say he fits right in.

    Certainly works for me!

    Very happy I got him. I originally wasn’t going to since I have the original and was content with it, but the improvements all compliment the figure and work so well.

    Ours were Speedpak too, ordered at the same time. That’s exactly what I hate about Speedpak, it’s wildly inconsistent. Basically an item will take between two weeks and never to arrive and the tracking will either work all the way to your doorstep or stop as soon as it gets to the US.

    My last three orders took almost a month to arrive.
    But... it kind of doesn't really bother me all that much to be honest. Now if they were to get lost in the mail, then I'd be upset.
