    No doubt. But I think the good doc has more than enough on his plate!

    until I get my sets I ain't asking him to do anything else! ;)

    Im surprised Dr. Wu hasnt put out something yet. They have all those other weapons in red and black, it would fit right in.

    Well as draconious380 suggested I gave Caelus two Grimlock swords (1 Hasbro and 1 platinum version). Had to do some painting to get them to match but they turned out ok.

    IMO they seem a little big on Caelus but I'll let you be the judge. If someone was to release the actual swords in clear red for Caelus I would be so happy!

    They do look a tad too big, but not too bad overall. I think it works as a stand in until a better option arises. Now to find my Platinum Grimlock's box.

    Dug out my grimlock and caelus the other day to put on a combiner/special teams shelf and it's got me really wanting to get Neptune and summanus. Anyone want to buy an almost complete prime collection? Haha

    Yeah it's not heaps bad looking but not perfect either. It will be a decent stand in for now...

    Oh BTW if you have a Platinum and a Hasbro version like I did the swords paint apps are different. I found Tamiya X-10 Gun Metal to match very closely to the color used on the swords. I just painted them up so they matched

    Thanks for the tip, I think I have some Tamiya Gunmetal in my box of Gundam paint.

    I gave him the blades that came with Summanus. They are probably shorter and would look better, though I don't have FOC Grimlocks to compare personally.

    Is there a good flight stand to use for Caelus? I want to display these in Dino mode.

    I use Obitsu's Clear Multistands - Hobby Link Japan. They're pretty inexpensive, come with 3-9 possible height configurations, and are decently sturdy. The only bad part is that HLJ currently has these stands on back order.

    I use Tamashii Act 5 stands. Some times they're frustrating but most of the time they're great.

    Bumping this because I actually have the same item up for sale as the previous guy at the same price even :lol 

    My Caelus is complete with all accessories, manual, character card, box and box insert all in great shape. Was only transformed once to dinosaur mode then back to robot mode. $60 shipped anywhere within the 48 U.S. states only.

    I love him, he's a great figure, but I can't afford to collect multiple sets of Dinobots and I'm more invested in the FansProject line as I've got all three of those bots compared to just the one Planet X bot.

    Am I the only one who thinks that Caelus' scale is too small compare to other PX's Dinobots?

    I personally think he's just right as he was fairly diminutive in the game as well. And if you think about it his alt mode SHOULD be small when compared to some of the larger bots. As a whole the team looks great on a shelf. Perhaps not 100% spot-on scale wise, but frankly who cares. Good enough for government work IMHO.

    yea i feel hes a bit small but it does make sense honestly for swoop to be smaller based on dino size

    Hello there, I have question. Robot Kingdom get re-release Caelus again, it's would have come with new transparent blades? Or original blades with red paint?
