    I kinda like the accessories you get to make a "different" rifle. I think I'm gonna keep it as pictured for the bot mode :D

    Got mine I am amazed DHL got it to people all over the country on the same day. Excited to hear the QC is improved like the ridearmors. Hopefully we get V2 reissue of Stick’s now I need doubles. Please don’t stop Sentinel we’re almost there.

    Excellent news! My Stick Legioss is pretty solid but I'll take more improvements and consistency!

    Gotta say, this is a little bit better than the Stick Legioss...but I love both of them either way! Can't wait for the green one :D  The display is almost complete!

    This is excellent news! Have they improved the tolerances on how well the hands hold the gun? I feel that was a little loose on the Ita release.

    Kind of a mixed bag on my copy
    • Most of the joints are a lot stiffer than Stick's copy. On mines the wings are way too tight, I was scared I was going to break or stress the hinges when bending them over. Also think the nose cone assembly once flipped over is more finicky than on my Stick copy. Still it's less flopping all around.Thise little gray turbine flaps actually stay now.
    • They changed the way the wing flap connects, but my right wing likes to pop off still. It's now a real hinge connecting the wing and the flap, with the flap slotting in a groove, maybe it was supposed to be glued?
    • Still dislike the hands, but my biggest gripe is my rotating chest parts are looser most noticeably his left side.
    All in all not bad, I would be a lot more happy without them charging tax, that pushed this closer to $260 versus $240 last time.

    Houquet’s whip is great. Great improvement in quality. No QC issues. These thing are so great looking I just wish they were 1/48 scale. For. The. Love. Of. God. Can I get her ridearmor now.

    I don’t know scale. I was under the impression 1/48 scale gave you a roughly 12” bot or battleroid or soldier-mode whatever, I wish it was bigger.

    It means it’s 1/48 of its “real” size. The legioss is actually a tiny jet.

    if you put one next to a Bandai DX 1/48 VF-1 figure they would be in the same scale - it is really half the height of a VF-1.

    Yeah, I'd say it's maybe the same? I dunno, my Stick held the gun fine, so it's hard to judge, but they feel similar.

    I just realized on my copy of Stiq's legioss the rectangle nub is not as pronounced on the left-wing hinge as much as the right side. I'm thinking this is why the left wing can be a little limp compared to the right. Damn it Sentinel mold that crap correctly!

    Hey, it’s only a $250 6-inch figure. You can’t expect perfection at such a low price!

    Wow. That looks like a small joint for the whole waist.

    I wouldn't worry about that joint breaking off. I'm thinking whoever's legioss this is they probably forgot to unlock the waist cover and then tried to rotate the waist and then it broke.

    Yukio's video show's that Sentinel definitely tightened this release up. Although my Ita release was not nearly as loose as his.




    I got my copy in-hand today and transformed it once. So far there are some better things here over my Ita release. None of the wings and or vertical stabilizers popped off on me. Both wings have a properly molded detent so they both snap into place when you fold the hinge. The shoulders are tight, but not stupidly so like the Ita. Sadly, the ab-crunch is kind of floppy and will need some kiki. The right ankle on my copy is the perfect tightness, but the left is still a little loose and also needs some kiki. I also think the lateral hip movement could be a little tighter too. All in all the Zeta is built a little better than the Ita. I still think Sentinel could and has had better build quality in the past. This is still the best legioss on the market and I'm ready for the Iota release.
