    Looks like they upped the release time as many of you noticed, Amazon Japan is now saying the 20th

    vertical stabilizers are way too stubby, and the cockpit/forward fuselage looks perhaps a bit short and bulbous. otherwise, Pure Awesome...

    Got my HLJ payment confirmation. Will get it shipped - no need to wait since I don’t have anything else on order.

    any in hand reviews out yet? Curious about general fiddlyness and particularly how well it holds together in plane mode.

    No in-hand reviews yet but they should be on their way in the next few days

    Oh boy preorder paid. Expectations low... very low. I am expecting this to be the best Legioss and I am also expecting to break it....

    Go slow, maybe watch a video review to transform it and you'll be fine.

    Well I broke a handle-bar on a Ride-Armor. So these Sentinel releases can test anyone. I am a very careful dude with toys too. Just wasn’t paying close enough attention wrestling that drunk octopus and...

    You know what’s gonna be great and funny about this?

    Even if it ends up being a heap of shit, it will still be the best Legioss ever made. :D

    Well my expectations are at least moderate. High even if you just consider expectations compared to the other Legioss toys we have gotten. I will probably wait till the Anymoon transformation video comes out before I attempt to transform. At least if it looks tricky.

    Well I gotta figure this will be easier than the ride armor. Legioss transformation is pretty simple, I think?

    Ha yeah. The bar ain't exactly high.

    I wonder about this too, given how my CMs one was and how it didn't hold together well in Armo Fighter mode.

    I don't that funny at all. This is too expensive for another fuck up of a legioss toy.

    I love this damn design and it absolutely pains me that 3 other previous tries done by crap companies got the license to tackle this design. I want to actually keep a legioss in the collection. It pains me that I sold my minty fresh gakken 1/35 4 years ago.

    If this legioss feels like T-REX's last transforming figure which I think was the Arcadia Proto-Garland it will be pretty sweet and not a drunk octopus.

    Well updated my info and Amazon Japan has hopefully been paid. First world problems but this is the second time this month I've had to rush because of adjusted pre-order times.

    Yeah I think Sentinel has a good shot at this. This is the best company so far. I am really the most excited for the tiny Dianaut Ride-Armor. Having the whole package as a complete set has been a dream of mine for a LONG time and this is the closest. If this is good, well over a thousand of my dollars is heading out the door. I already went nuts with the Ride-Armors. Speaking of which where is Rook?

    I will be in the same boat as you. I at the very least want the 3 main legioss on display maybe the dark one BUT only if the mold is very good. Rook seems to still be in prototype form. Summer wonderfest should have occurred this month but with COVID19 we might still get a virtual one for toy reveals.

    Was it one of those that a dealer found in a case out of nowhere like in 2004?

    I can't believe I'm hearing about this now, that was around the same time someone found a shipping crate of virtual boys.
