    I’m starting to look at Mechanical Chain Bases. If Diaclone doesn’t show at least another proof of concept for a Command Center I’m dropping cash on like 10 of the Kotobukiya A Bases.

    Someone said this about Jetter recently. For me transformation means ziltch in this line, as most of the modes are made up of a mix of suggestive greebles and my own imagination. Proportions and parts forming can go bonkers and I would lap Gatsblocker up no questions asked. The close tolerance transforming components like forearm fists are always executed with simplicity. I wonder if Diaattacker will be the same way since his original toy didn't partsform.

    On one of my Big Powered leg/truck sets, the peg on the grey gun attachment sheared off at the indent out the box

    One of my Waruder had a claw snap off

    The rings that slide down the forearms on Battle Buffalo have both broken on mine

    One of my battle buffalo suffered from extremely tight tolerances. My second BB felt great throughout all of the hinges and joints but again the upper arm rotation is a little tight, go figure. How did the sliding rings fail?

    One of my Raptor sets had a mis-assembled body connector, which isn't too much of a big deal since you get two of them in a set. BBTS came through on that one but I'm hesitant to repeat the process on something as insignificant. Here's hoping we all receive flawless Warudaros.

    They both snapped in exactly the same thin spots on the rings - 2 per ring. I guess they'd come under stress when I opened the forerms up to flip he hands in and out

    Ehh, I don't like the heads on those bullet cores. o_O 

    I'm still waiting to see if they'll make a Cosmo version of Trijetter. Otherwise I might pick up the dark color version.

    I agree. It’s an excellent concept and they straight up executed it like shit. The red and blue are exactly the same? And totally nondescript? How fucking lame TT. They had and opportunity to give us three totally unique characters portraits that would have added endless playability to the line and instead we get the laziest possible effort from them. I’d say I was disappointed by a good idea poorly executed but I am actually sort of pissed off at how fucking pathetic they actually look. Fuck you back TT, I’ll keep my money.

    Many thanks! It's a custom 3D-printed and sticker-detailed model of the Wipeout HD Harimau Fury vessel. Here he is in close up:

    No, Trijetter has a lot more red and blue. Cosmo Diabattles is mostly white, with orange bits and lots of gray and silver "space" coloration.

    Also by Cosmo version, I don't just mean color scheme but some different accessories like space boosters instead of wings, that sort of thing.
