    The question is whether they are like FT and will make you buy an entirely different figure to get the other color wings. :D

    LOL you're probably right, they totally intended to do this from the start to save on some gray plastic! YOU'LL PAY FOR THIS, MMC!! YOU HEAR ME?!

    The proto was likely hand painted to some extent, and I'm guessing there was no room on the gray sprues for the large head wings to go. It's unfortunate, but on the other hand MMC did give us an additional $10 back + a free clear Targetmaster, so I'm not that bothered about it.

    Mine hasn't shown as being delivered yet but I've been checking often. I've got 2.5 hours of work left. Hoping it does get delivered today. I wouldn't see why It wouldn't. Rochester, NY isn't that far away from Ithaca, NY. Haha.

    The Clear figure is in a box- inside the Kojin Box. I received mine a couple of days ago up here in Canada.

    Appreciate it. I'm still debating if I'm going to open this up or not.

    Mine arrived today. Nice figure. I have MT Hellfire already, so I figured I'd get a different character and different mold. Glad I did. I'd love to see the actual MP mold in person some day.

    Same. Mostly just wanted to support this effort and I do like my Backdraft a lot so I like the mold in general. I have Roadcrane sitting misb and now this one. Neither is really necessary for the collection focus I have but both might be fun to display in a special odds-n-ends case eventually.

    Yeah exactly. I just don't really have a spot on my shelf for this character but I love the look of him. The entire packaging and presentation is beautiful.

    Gah!!! The way the USPS hubs are set up, even tho the last destination is 2 hrs away it's looking like I won't be seeing this guy today. If I didn't have to work today I might have went to pick it up. Hahaha. Oh well. One more day and I'll def have it in hand. I'll just have to hope some of you have pics to show and I'll just drool till I get mine. Lol.

    Nah, there are 2 wings right. The obvious answer is that you have to buy 2 figures.

    Looks like the targetmasters (both versions) have a minor assembly error; the legs are on the wrong sides. Detach the legs at the hip ball joint, rotate the upper leg 180, and attach it so the inner pegs on the shins are facing each other, and you should be set (If you need a better visual cue, the hip has a rounded side and a hard corner side on the top of the joint; the rounded side should be on the front of the figure)
