    Finally got the call to collect my BA OP. Been waiting for months. This is the second batch stock which has been shipping after the golden week holidays.
    I was told third batch orders will be shipping in November.

    Thanks, I used my Galaxy S10 and (I think?) the telephoto lens. I know very little about cameras and photography so all the hard work was done by the S10 there :p

    People and their awesome looking mods.

    Meanwhile I'm here being me and it's like "EXCUSE ME WHAT THE F**K ONE OF MY ANKLE PIECES JUST SWIFTLY FLOWN OFF".

    What I'm assumed to be a metal pin connecting the piece is nowhere to be found.

    Are you sure it’s not a friction hinge?

    There's a pin on the left side if my eyes aren't deceiving me.

    That's an easy fix with a piece paper clip and some wire cutters. For my experience doing this on other figures the hole is smaller than the paper clip so it will hold

    Found the pin when I attempted to sweep the floor!
    Wondering if it'd fly off again later.

    Dip one extreme of the pin with superglue and carefully place it with tweezers, always works for me

    Hi guys! So after following this post for a few months, I decided to finally order it (placed my order Tuesday, got it Saturday using Shopee)

    I just wanted to ask if you guys experience any tabbing issues especially with the truck mode, the upper part of the chest feeling like its popping out and you just lock it with the shoulder/arm tab to keep it still, and the joints being lose (my visor is quite loose)?

    If a joint is loose is there a way to tighten it? and is it just really difficult to transform to truck mode or is there something wrong with my unit (first time ordering a figure like this and my only other figure I ever bought was an HA BB a few years back)

    Just really wanted to be happy with the figure because I really think it's the best bayverse figure in terms of character design, colors, and proportions and seeing it in person is so amazing (pictures don't really do it justice), but these issues/concerns are quite annoying and sad jfnejfka

    I'm going to attach some pictures of me posing it (I forgot to fix the legs, but I think he looks fine anyway) with my issues with the truck mode

    Just made an account just to ask and share my experience with you guys because this thread is really helpful

    Please post more pics. They're delightful.

    More importantly, what's shopee? The turn around time for your order is incredible! People in this thread have been waiting for months.

    Shopee is an e-commerce platform in South East Asia

    its kinda like e-bay? And the market/stocks usually are just found locally or around the surrounding countries so shipping is really fast

    Personally, I was kinda unsure about it because I heard about the batches here taking really long to ship and if I could trust the seller, but this guy in Shopee who has one last 1 out of 3 or 4 left had really high ratings in stock so I ordered it!! It came pretty quickly and thankfully it wasnt a scam so yeah

    thankful it came really quickly, but sorta bummed from the minor issues like the back part of the left leg not opening, right visor pin doesnt go the whole way through, stressed plastic on one small part of the figure (see below where I compare it)

    All in all an amazing figure, but really hard to transform (ive only tried once so far because I dont have much time and i couldn't even transform him properly as seen below as well) 00000IMG_00000_BURST20191020165803508_COVER.jpg IMG_20191020_154206.jpg IMG_20191020_154200.jpg

    Holy fucking shit, you weren't joking. It stuns me how quickly love can turn to hate.

    Does anyone have a good video review of the transformation they could recommend please?

    I like to use acrylic floor polish to tighten joints. I believe there's a thread about it in the Radicons section..

    Oooh okay
    Thanks!! I'll keep that in mind

    I realized its not really that the joint was loose, but the pin either got cut or got damaged so it didn't reach the exit hole
