Watch this review.
Not only is it hilarious, but it tells you everything you need to know about it.
i bit the bullet and ordered this guy and ace-02 hiccups off of bbts simply due to the price. wonder if my streak of always hitting the qc jackpot will hold true
I bought mine from someone who had already done the fixes. I still like him a lot. He looks great on my shelf next to Sideswipe. I like how the back cleans up so nicely and his vehicle mode is great too. It’s a good “masterpiece” style update to the classic G1 toy.
It's too bad the factory fucked over this project, because aesthetically he's still the best companion piece to MP Sideswipe.
If someone is interested, I'm selling mine. Pm me.
I bought one from BBTS a few months ago, I think is worth it at the sale price. For what they were originally asking is an absolute NEIN! And I agree is a good toy version of this character, shame about the quality of the materials and QC issues. I bought it to display it in alt mode, were it looks fine.
Id pay $20 for it. Let go, BBTS.
if only some good company made it again -_-
Spinout is a release that pretty much broke my heart. It was the only one that was faithful to the G1 toy design with regards to the car roof & windshield forming the bot's chest/torso. With a few design & engineering tweaks, this could've been an excellent MP style Sunstreaker. Better shoulder joints, neck design, chest that sat closer to the body, ratchet joints, paint, plastic, and sculpting tweaks, this could've blown away the BadCube release. Instead, the designer got shafted by Omnigonyx heavily cutting corners to cut down on production cost. Spinout had so much potential for greatness, and they blew it.
I have one, and he holds together fine. I guess I'm lucky.
I love mine. Sure, I had to do the fixes, but I love the aesthetic best of all 3 options. Worth all the extra work.
Got this guy in yesterday and honestly I think he is well worth the $35. My biggest complaints are that his shoulders are a tad loose and the tolerances on his head are way too tight to move it on the neck assembly
It's so clearly the right design produced by the wrong factory. (for those that are looking for MPs not toon-slavish)
Agreed, it’s a great design, there’s just a few quibbles with the design
Maybe if Yes Model could get a hold of the design.
I have one, and I have to say after you give it some TLC and make the time to do the few fixes to the chest, you have a pretty decent figure.. As was said before, the design of the character is bang on, but the execution of the factory that made it really dropped the ball..
Out of curiosity, what are the issues with the chest? I didn’t notice any on mine, but I was more focused on the horrible neck
Mine just would not stay tabbed in at the shoulder/chest connection..So I bought the add on part and swapped out the originals for the new parts and it stays tabbed together now.
Interesting, mine doesn’t seem to have that issue, granted I’m not really manipulating it much, more of a pose it and set it piece for me, but the connection seems fairly solid
