    It helps the height a little bit, but not much. Kultur’s inherently huge, even without the ankles extended. No getting around that!

    I actually didn't extend it because I don't want him to be taller. He's already a little bit taller than I'd like, to be honest.

    What do you mean? His elbows are double jointed. It's a bit of a weird double joint, but still. Shockbow.JPG

    I made comparisons with a bunch of figures a few pages back. Including both Tarn and Deadlock, oddly enough:

    Hmm, wow, thanks. I am puzzled here because all the reviewers show only 90 degree... i mean this is much better than 90 degree, at least 30 - 45 degree better, which makes a huge difference for me. Any tricks you did to pull this off?

    Finally, in person, how does he look with MMC Tarn / Deadlock? Does it look good, or is the painted figure making it the other 2 MMC figure dont look good with? This can only be done with in person look. That said, it will probably look good still with my FP dinobots, but i want those by themselves to be honest.

    You need to use the lower elbow joint first. It's tighter than the upper one, so it doesn't bend unless you go out of your way to move it.

    I'd say he looks good with them. Especially Deadlock. He is a bit shinier than them, but not to a distracting degree.

    Have him in hand and can confirm, in ship mode, you can bring the wings up behind his head, tab them together, then turn the whole thing upside down for a wierd looking laser gun thing.

    This arrived yesterday. I like the figure though light piping would had made it so much better to me.

    Mine came in earlier this week. This guy just oozes "presence", to me. Bot mode is great, and the vehicle mode has that weird, alien speeder/fighter vibe I love. Not to mention I love the blast effects in both modes.

    Only issue is that the legs going into vehicle mode sometimes seem to just not want to line up quite right (mostly with getting the thigh panels to flip around and plug into the hips), and I can't figure out why.

    Got mine earlier this week! It’s great...! Almost. Why isn’t his gun and calves silver?! I can airbrush them, but the fact that I have to makes me sad.

    To the tip of his wings just a hair over 8". And I must say, I love this scale - pretty much voyager. If all my MPs where this scale, I'd be a lot happier - price, space, and just more fun to mess with imo.

    I'm a big fan of the Planet X WFC line in general. I love the game's take on modernized TF designs and Planet X (almost) perfectly executed on bringing them to life. This one has to be my favorite yet - not perfect, a few minor nitpicks, but overall a fun, robust, durable and fantastic looking toy. If they release an "X" version they need to called it "Triple-X" or something because this is already an X version - the paint is absolutely gorgeous, and flawlessly applied to my two copies. Highly recommended pickup if you can get it at retail price.

    This is me nitpicking but is there a reason why you don't swivel the shoulders up?

    No reason, I'd been messing with him and neglected to adjust them or the pics. But you are correct, they swivel upwards.

    Very impressed with your level headed non defensive response. Refreshing in this day and age ! I might even get the figure now
