    I really enjoy the cab being held by the extender arm. It just adds a level of play value to the figure that makes it even more fun to fiddle with.

    I'm also quite impressed by the light piping. No added light needed. It just shines in a normal setting.

    This is also the first Diaclone figure I have been tempted to paint some of the detailing on. The sides of the bot mode have a lot of sculpting that is bare, so I may do some work on it over the long weekend.

    Numbering looks good. I haven’t applied those at all. Now considering.

    I wasn't going to, but my daughter really liked this one, and her birthday is in July, so...

    The light piping in all the Trivers I have so far (Digger, Dasher, and Jetter) is incredibly well done. Your photos here capture it well!

    The more I see if this version of Tridigger, the more I want one. Nice pics, thanks for posting them! :)

    You’re a good dad my daughters can pound sand. That’s my favorite release. Did you order from that Chinese eBayer?

    I love the cyclopean eye-shield on Marine Trigger. Or Cosmo? Whatever.

    Yep, but it was even cheaper than previously posted. I got it for under $130 shipped.
    Can't complain.

    Outstanding. Probably sell out and go through the roof like everything else.

    With all the focus on some of the big guys, can't forget the little ones.
    I know they're essentially power armor suits, but putting it in a running pose makes me chuckle a bit.

    I'm also interested in any customisation... my eldest son likes that kind of stuff and I bought a stack of the DA-09 power suits during that Kapow sale to mess with.

    This guy has some cool custom raid chambers.

    Anyone else messed with theirs?

    Swapping parts has been pretty successful imo, especially the shadow tridasher with all the blue removed.

    cant say I’ve done any panel lining though. it’s not often I find it to look good, unless it’s done as a wash or with subtle colors (no black)

    Yeah, panel lining usually isn't good unless done correctly.
    The detailing i plan on doing is going to be solid coloring. I want the figure to mesh with the rest of the collection.

    Still better than all the subsequent suits. In my opinion.

    Ebay:
    TCP sent out in-stock in 3 day notifications for DA-51 (finally) and DA-59. Also got charged for DA-60 on AJ. I saved 5 BUCKS! (if you don't pay sales tax from a NA dealer)
