I'm doing the same
best beast mode ever
Has anyone tried the AOW 002 Rex Blaster with Vulcun?
What is this guy going on about: ArtTek FOC Grimlock Upgrades: Art of War AOW-02 and Art of Tech AOT-001
Got Vulcan this morning in the mail. Awesome figure! Really liked the transfomation and then on the last tab of transfomation.... Drop kick to the penis.
Seems like a tricky pin to remove even IF I managed to get a replacement piece. Guess I'll try to fabricate a tab, does not detract from how amazing this guy is!!
Could've been worse. Could've been all tab and no slot!
You are not wrong on that one.
Looks more like a healthy knee to the penis to me. Not quite a kick.
It just seemed worse because everything was perfect until the very las thing I tried to tab together out of the box. All in all it doesn't affect much. Not even noticable once its posed, just an OCD thing.
Took the GF out for a lunch date, had a few beers and made a game plan. Took about 3 minutes to make a fix.
Now the figure has sentimental value!
Paint. Horrendous paint. It's disappointing to say the least. Mine has flaws in several places. Even BBTS is aware of it and just sort of dismissed my complaints even though it was about the sword and not the paint. My sword has visible flaws in the plastic. Had the paint been plastic and not painted over, older Vulcuns, I'd probably be much happier with it.
I'm surprised BBTS wouldn't try to help you on that. Not cool. I got mine on Saturday and luckily the paint all looks good. Now I just have to be careful not to scratch it during transformation.
I have to agree with others who love his beast mode. This may be the best alt mode for any TF ever.
I really want this guy, but I've also got a lot of other things coming down the pipe, so I don't know if I can spend the money on him right now...
actually have 3x arttek guns, 1 for vulcun, 1 for customer's g2 vulcun, and then one for potp grim
Man! That pistol looks pretty much perfect in his hands.
Thanks for answering.
Any recommendations for a flame effect for the T-Rex mouth?
I have been looking at some of the Bandai power effects parts.
Thanks. I was surprised not only by how unhelpful their response was but that it's not molded plastic and just normal Vulcun, painted over. I do love my Hephaestus very much. Painting over an entire figure just never works out well in the long run though. Far too much rub and scratch potential. I'm probably returning it in favor of the old version.
ouch so the metallic run is prone to chipping and scratching paint? Whereat, I painted one in blue and the only area I had issues was the feet since you literally scrape them to go in for alt mode.
I guess I should stick with the custom one I did for myself and not sell it..
Just got the metallic version. The paint pops so much and it's the most espressive figure I own. But with the way the transformation works, I can totally see the worry of chipping.
I own Vulcun, and f***ing love it.
I would like to pick the rest of these up at some point. I know Paddles is still reasonably widely available.
