    One more ask, can someone pose MD next to Maketoys Thunder Manus, the tiny one, if you have both of them.

    I already have my copy, but I also ordered one from Captured Prey quite some time ago. I have been trying to contact them for a refund but so far all I've met is a wall of silence. I do know that some people here have gotten a refund for their CP order. Any tips on how I can do the same. I've written a couple of emails and made several phone calls. I've also messaged Sidecutter here. And so far NADA. It's insane,

    This has to be the coolest 3P figure I've seen in a while. Too bad I don't have the room to display him.

    I called literally every single day for a week, leaving voicemails every time before I received a response. I started off saying I just wanted to talk, then after a couple of days I started to expressing my dissatisfaction with their business. If they hadn't called me back when they did, I was going to threaten to report them to the BBB. And if no communication was had after that, I was actually going to report them. Good luck.

    I don't know if you have on one order somewhere else already but Toy Dojo still has them.

    Got him when he first came out and, aside from him stabbing me as Megatrons tend to do, I'm very happy with him. Just wish the fingers were more moveable.

    Truthfully the only problem comes with the weight of the wings on his back knocking him over in Robot mode. But dragon mode looks stunning.

    Received mine last week and agree that he’s an absolutely stunning figure. Wish he could support his own weight better, but overall I’m satisfied

    The key is to have the wings in different positions based on transformation. When in figure mode keep his wings neutral or slightly forward. When in dragon mode keep his wings angled back between 30 to 45 degrees. Ymmv but I've found this works best for me when positioning him.

    Messing with his ankles also works wonders, as another member noted here:

    Love that they turned the dragon head into a fusion cannon for him.

    No lie, that was one of the main reasons I got this guy. I could never stand the original toy's single noodly dragon arm. With this redesign you can have it either way, so everyone wins!

    Yup, 100%. If you adjust the ankles correctly and use the thigh swivels slightly he has no problems standing with the wings in any position except straight back. This and their Gorira are the only figures that have a self to themselves, both are absolutely gorgeous. IMG_20190212_123619.jpg

    Actually surprised they managed to keep the neck so possable even with the cannon gimmick. This was definitely a good buy.

    I want to pose him up above Gorira, but his flight stand area looks unique. Does anyone know what kind he uses?
