    You are a knob @MyTeaBoc. Seething with jealousy.

    Got mine in.

    Unfortunately the screws of my TR Galvatron (the second one I bought, first was sacrificed in the name of modding) had been so badly stripped from constantly taking it apart to apply shapeways mods that it wasn't possible to take it apart to reinstall the old neckpiece, I had to destroy it to remove said 3P parts I could still use and move them onto my third TR Galvatron (bought just in case I needed it for parts). Even more annoying, my 3P screwdriver broke apart while trying to use it, so I can't install the shapeways G1 Shoulder pylons just yet, need to find a replacement for that... somehow. No idea how. I'd rather not mess with larger screwdrivers and risk stripping screws all over again.

    But that's all unrelated to the results, I'm glad I choose to wait on this because the results are just spectacular.

    Okay hopefully a double post won't be too bad here, but update

    My frustration won out (it's been a difficult day) and I ended up taping up the rod from the 3p screwdriver to get the third Galvatron figure apart. I don't think this guy needs any more mods frankly.

    Again, you rock Venksta

    He looks really good! I had the same idea as you, and many others, in using that shapeways swivel. Ended up taking mine out.
    I would suggest though that if you haven't done so, on the original Galvatron neck/plug/whatever, knock out the pin that holds the original folding mask in place and get rid of that part, then put the pin back in because it holds part of the plug on place.
    This will leave you significantly more room in the chest cavity and not interfere with storing the Renderform head inside.
    (Apologies if this has been posted already, I try to keep up with that thread and may have missed it.)

    See, a lot more of these updates, even if they were only reports about problems, would have made the situation easier for most people. I'm glad to hear these, even though I know now, that my order will be in the last batch, because I ordered a G1 head. But at least I know something :)

    I paid for my pre-order 14 may 2017 and am among those still waiting, I'm strapped in for the long haul because it's the G1 version to boot!
    I believe folks who got him have received dispatch notice, fellow board member @MyTea Boc got notice for his but it had ended up in his spam, so you could try looking in your junk/spam folder, just in case it's been redirected for you too. Search for '[email protected]' to see if you made it into the lucky lot, if not feel free to join me waiting with baited breath.

    I'm still waiting on some sort of confirmation that he changed my address. I've contacted him on here and Facebook. I emailed him through his store as well. Haven't gotten any response. If he ships my parts to my old apartment I will officially be furious since I've been one of his patient supporters since May of 2017.

    You know what's needed now? Good shoulder pads and a connector for the back-thingy.

    you can get a good back thruster on shapeways, easy installation

    There are shoulder pylon options on shapeways but none of them are really "great".

    Does anyone know where these ship from? I ask because UPS tried to deliver something to me from Lincoln, Nebraska while I was on vacation, but it required a signature, so they sent it back. I have no idea what it is, and this kit is the only possible thing I can think of. No idea why it would require a signature though.

    Anyone waiting for IDW Galvy kits got notice of dispatch yet? Just wondering if us G1 Galvy awaiters can hold out hope for a Christmas miracle.
