    You do not know what you are missing then. My wrists, shoulders and biceps all spin 360 degrees.
    Edit: come to think of it so does my head

    Recently it's only the deposit option that's opened up on FT PO stuff, not full price

    So I went from not buying this due to price to buying because of price lol. Tfs-express total price is pretty good and I can combine the shipping.

    Back up on Omegalock in limited quantities! Go, go, go!!!

    (I hopefully got mine after a PayPal landline confirmation heart attack).

    Also, not sure if he's on here, but massive shout out to Paul Anthony for being even more dogged than me in chasing them! You sir are a legend and exactly what the fandom is about!

    Mine did in the photos but then I had a collar installed and that prevented my neck from moving in most directions.

    I know that, shipping will be combined with my other stuff. I'll end up way cheaper than $250

    Thanks, I forgot you could see that info and went there to check it out. Couldn't believe that price so I preordered! Will have to cancel elsewhere, or not:D . Unless they charge a crazy shipping amount, a bot of that size usually gets a $39 shipping charge and if that holds true at release it will be just over $200! Awesome!:)  but I wont get my Hope's up.

    Haha for real. 10+ years in a factory on a forklift, 15+ years under a vehicle, plus other crappy jobs and being a stupid kid once upon a time has left me with far less range of motion than these toys ppl are complaining about. On top of that ive shelled out more in medical expenses with no results than i ever have on toys.

    I think when this arrives I'm going to put my Hasbro Soundwave on the market. I know that technically it's more toy accurate with the yellow visor but the little unpainted spot on the foot that takara's doesn't have bothers me. That will give somebody in the market for a chance to grab him and all of the tapes except ratbat in one Fell Swoop.

    I agree that pony and his little partners is a great ko option. As an added bonus the box is freaking awesome. The tolerances were good for it and all of the cassettes. Plus it comes with the auto Scout which isn't even officially available. I don't remember if it had fully articulated hands or not, I don't think so. But as a low-cost option to snag the whole s1 crew at once it's a winner

    I have a similar to do list. Giga Dino's , Preceptor, a good Hotrod or Rodimus , Blitzwing and I will be out.
    Although I also collect Megatons in all scales and I have most of the ones I need.

    Nothing wrong with getting out the game.

    As you say this, I’m in a hip brace, my man. So, don’t feel bad. I’m in my last month as a 36-year old because I made one of the worst decisions anyone can make and took a high-paying, off-the-book, physical labor job and did it for ten years. When we suffered sprains or tears, we just used drugs to cover it and kept going. When I broke my hand or fingers or toes, the same.

    Now, I have a herniated cervical disc that makes my hands and elbows go numb if I hold my arms still and am likely on a cane for the next six months.

    Seeing Transformers that can rotate all the way around at the hips makes my leg hurt.
