    It sounds like they plan on a mass release next year with a slightly different paint deco

    For me she is amazing. My Eris is flawless. Even no gray swirls on the gray plastic pieces. So I got a girl with no stress marks, no blemishes, not missing anything, not broken In anyway... straight up victoria secret I mean Mastermind Creations Eris.

    But I understand there are some people that may like stretch marks I mean stress marks.

    Mine feels like it's been in customs for forever.
    Hoping we get a full female DJD crew

    Mass production version will be happening next year. It'll have a Tarn-ier deco likely to be more pleasing to more people also.

    Tarn is really outdated , huh. Especially the flawed cannon placement. But ultimately he is so solid. Eris is very cool action figure but wish she is more solid in the leg. 20210624_191524.jpg

    She looks pretty "Tarny" to me, but I'll take what I can get. I love her sculpt. She reminds me of the sniper character from that Overwatch game my son plays.

    I'm just going off pictures, but Tarn/Kultur seems to have a darker purple.

    Like my Drillhorn/Hypnos vs Jinboa Mixmaster. Much richer color

    I don't think Tarn is dated at all. He has more poseability than a lot of FT figures, easy and well engineered transformation without super tight tolerances and plastic stress mark areas, and he is still quite accurate to the source material. He's pretty much in line with Assaultus for the most part RE all those same attributes I just mentioned. He just doesn't have the absolutely insane new levels of poseability that has seemingly only just appeared with optus and now Eris, and he doesn't have quite as much paint perhaps, but Helex and all just came out and they seem to have the same or even less paint as a ratio to the figures surface area. If Tarn is outdated, I'd be willing to say you would have to note that 95% of the rest of your collection is also now outdated...

    I hate to be That Guy, but can I get an executive summary of the QC areas of concern? I don't want to miss something that needs replacement.

    As per @David Hingtgen -


    “All fingers present.
    Ankles right-side-up.
    Both ‘square hollow connector pegs’ present.
    Both sets of headlights present.”

    Check those areas :)

    All of those, plus some people seem to have issues with the chest piece getting stress marks when transforming, possibly due to the way the pins are aligned. I haven't had that issue but it definitely is a tight flip.

    I love how imposingly tall she is and how non-organic looking with her angular shapes. I hope they include extra fingers with the re-release like Optus Pexus, because I’m nervous about losing one of her tiny claws, but that’s a minor complaint. Maybe there for a second copy, definitely there for an Eris:Megatron or fembot DJD.

    POV you defected from the Decepticons, you silly thing:

    Maybe in the next reformatted figures (rung/mentis) they can add a bonus for new posable fingers Tarn/kultur hands.... a PSX bonus.

    .... and if anyone has an issue with getting it from psx, for whatever reason because psx is great, then they'll have to wait for someone to sale the hands on ebay.

    That would be very cool. He definitely needs more expressive hands.

    Granted Tarn would totally cut the finger off the bot who forgets to raise his pinkie.
