    Yeah, sometimes usage of the eggcorn surpasses the original. "Another thing coming" was originally "another think coming," as in "you need to think again".

    I'll might as well throw in another in that it's "A spirit image" rather than "a spitting image".

    I used to never be sure if the saying was 'he's got a puncher's chance or a punter's chance'

    I've only ever heard "spitting image". And having a look on line ('cause, you know, everything online is true!!) I can't find a reference to "spirit image".

    And in the meantime, before we get too far off track. I ran Ignis back through his transformations last night and I'm seriously loving this guy.

    I think he did that on purpose... also just edit your original post if you're just adding stuff.

    I was just playing along… should have added blue font.

    Also, the legs seem pencil-ish-y on the combiner. Not a super fan.

    I didn’t think I’d be able to add that many pics to one post so I just did them in sets of 3.
    But thanks for the suggestion.

    As far as I'm concerned, it still is.
    "Another thing coming" just doesn't makes sense.
    "If you think I'm going to change my mind, you have another thing coming." What was the first thing though?

    Anyways, I got my copy today. I love him!!! The engineering is so satisfying. Not sure how I feel about the leg clips longterm, but everything else is terrific. I cannot freaking wait for Blades and Groove.

    I wonder if it would've looked better if it had shorter thighs and Streetwise and Groove were bigger to compensate. But that might have thrown off the proportions for Hotspot.

    To me it looks alright, it's easier to do kneeling poses that way. You can also fold the knee panels inward to reveal the black knee plates to visually "shorten" the thigh length
