    Got two grey slips of doom through the door today (didn’t they used to be red??); for the uninitiated this means bad news in the form of customs bummage to the tune of £40 for da-40 and da-42.

    The good news is that now that I have paid these, they will finally arrive on Thursday!! Can’t wait to get these guys together with the rest of the gang!

    I'm going to swap the arms from the chest next to give the red back to dasher and give more yellow to the latter.

    Hope they do another Verselizer with removable treads and heavy equipment.

    I opened my Red Lightning today. The color scheme is sharp, I still like seeing the Diabattles mold again, and don't mind redecos, yet this still feels a bit, I don't know...superfluous? It's odd to say this, but I think I would've preferred a greenish Cosmo Marines version instead? Maybe if we get Red Lightning suits and other stuff (I know DA-48's coming, but that's one of the few releases I'm skipping) that corresponds to it and forms a sort of squad, it'll feel less random. It's not bad by any means, but I wasn't as excited by it as I've been by other releases for whatever reason.

    Anyways, if TCP would finally invoice me for Shadowdasher, I could get that and DA-43 shipped out.

    I know what you mean. I also really like my Red Lightning but this is the first time I’m feeling a little bummed out about all the toys I’m accumulating.

    hopefully I don’t get bored of this line because it’s just too much fun!

    I like that DA-52 looks to be an add-ons upgrade set. I really want to see how it looks on Trijetter.

    Belated Xmas in my house...

    Just praying for no broken mushroom pegs to spoil it all :( 

    Edit: thankfully all is seemingly ok with these guys but the button to release the mushroom peg is as tight as a ducks arse on tri-dasher. Much, much easier to release on jetter.

    Of the two, at this stage, I am liking tri—jetter more - which is entirely the opposite of what I thought when they were first revealed. The position of the knees is irksome on dasher and somehow he seems awkward and a bit derpy in hand.

    How would you change the color applications to match the likes of “bpowered destroyer?”

    Beat me to it. I also wanted to change the soles of the feet and the blue part on the hip connector but decided against it.

    I think that red Bullet Core looks way better than the blue, so I will permanently swap them out.
