    Thanks very much!
    Looks like this one is up for preorder on Show.Z store; so when you say it's getting hard to find, is there any reason to think the preorder isn't legit? Or did you just mean hard to find *immediately*?

    This figure is often sold out very quickly each time it's released. Most people get it by pre-ordering and wait. Just check with the seller when it will be available and see if you can wait that long :)  . I waited 2 months before getting mine. There might be some shops have it in stock at a bit higher price, depending where you are.

    I just did what @Lukelbs does. I'm not at my figure currently to take more pictures of it.

    I basically fold it up into a triangle shape, which also helps to reinforce the front panels covers to not collapse.

    It's a custom SS Prime Savio did

    Also took a page from @Taejun book and made the DOTM abs for my Prime, I'm quite pleased with the result! :D

    I went with this custom configuration for the headlights since due to the way the new abs work the alternate configuration cannot be done and any other I tried messed with the silhouette and made him look fat, which I really didn't like, so I hid them away instead lol

    Just playing! I am wondering though if you received the upgrade pieces, as mine were also supposed to be here by now as well.
    They've been stuck at ISC according to USPS tracking.

    Yesterday, I was able to get his windows to sit directly against his sternum.

    IMG_20200318_082058_01.jpg

    The red parts that fold up behind the windows are right up against the upper notches of the sternum.

    I didn't take any pictures of the inside where I removed some plastic, but I can probably get that done tomorrow if interested.

    Yes please, if it's possible. I followed JohnnyGundam's tutorial for the chest mods and his looks fantastic, but for some reason my chest windows just look off. I'd really like to see what you've removed
