    Yeah. Hasbro need to do more transformer set pieces like this.

    Mine arrived yesterday. Pondering trying to reinforce the gangplank and increase the weight of the base of the box so it's more stable.

    Yeah I was wondering about that. How stable is it.?

    I still have mine in the box so I haven't tested it out yet

    I mean, it's fairly stable. You have to place it properly, and a misbehaving cat or an earthquake could easily knock it over.

    The problem is that the bottom-rear of the box is open and hollow. This is entirely reasonable on Hasbro's part - less material, less weight. But if you're going to keep it, like me, then it might make sense to make alterations.

    I'm not the craftiest or handiest person, but my current idea is to mildly increase the weight towards the bottom-front and maybe fill in the back. And glue thin styrene sheet to the bottom of the gangplank to reinforce it, because it's definitely the most vulnerable spot. (Truth be told, some enterprising Radicon or 3D designer could even devise a way to make the gangplank actually drop.)

    You kinda wish the set was plastic as opposed to cardboard. The gangplank on the recent skiff from jedi is a solid piece of plastic that can both extend and retract and would be nice if this set could do that.

    Not that I'm really complaining I do love this set and I know of this was plastic the price would be sky high.

    The amount of retooling on the Bailiff beyond what you can see at first glance is kind of shocking. I had no clue the head and neck of his alligator mode were new, let alone the rotating part the robot mode head sits on that you can barely see. They put way more effort into this guy than they probably should have. He's great.

    The set has a lot of hidden things you wouldn't expect like the baliff. I like the judge colors too.
    The most important part of the set is krennic. When are we gonna get him again? He's the piece of the set because it's krennic

    A bit more in-scale Quintesson Pit of Judgement set. After I took out the Judge, Baliff and Sharkticon figures to add to my Quintesson shelf I replaced them in the packaging with 3rd party SRC Judge, 3rd Corbot V Mugger Allicon (it's too bad there's no 3rd party Legends scale Quintesson Executioner figure) and the Hasbro Cyberverse Sharkticons set (painted their eyes green).

    That's a cool quintesson. I got a 3rd partu quint a few years ago. It showed how the faces should go on with the sequence from the movie slightly different to season 3

    I got mine last week (finally, after my order from last year got stolen out of the package and replaced with cheap clothes). I didn’t like the colors of the mainline Quint and Alicon so I was kinda meh on the figures, but these look so much better to me. I originally ordered two but cancelled one in the end, but now I kinda regret I did. Because I don’t think I will be freeing these figures out from their plastic ties as the figures won’t stay put afterwards. But maybe I’ll think of a solution.

    I think this set is really special. Props to the team at Hasbro.

    Yep I love mine and I haven't opened it.

    I may do so in future but not now
