    The vehicle mode looks as close to a military HEMMT I've seen made. I'm on the fence on this one. I really do like the HEMMT mode though.

    I've been driving one for the past three years now, how did I not notice this?? Maybe someone could make a Patriot launcher and make it into a battle suit a la battle tanker... Who am I kidding I don't ever want one of my figures associated with ADA. :lol

    Nah I just like to drive LOL. The Hemmt is very interesting to drive because your wheels are so far back from the cab. Was fun driving it in public because people looked at me like WTF is that

    I got my Driver's Badge driving these around Germany. Fuel tanker configuration travelling to all of the air bases. They were fun to drive but man that cabin could BOUNCE!

    This looks a bit more like the Rolling Thunder. Expanded the truck a bit further to mount it.

    Has anyone bought TFC STC-01A (I'm referring to the G1 Prime color not the green GI Joe color) Tactical Commander Rolling Thunder Optimus Prime from Taobao and had it shipped via EMS Zhongshan to the USA? If so what was the weight determined by the EMS warehouse? I want to know if the EMS warehouse calculates shipping for this item based on actual weight or the more expensive volumetric weight.


    Back in November 2018, this Taobao seller, Mong Kok Animation, once had it for 730 yaun (about $109 USD) before shipping and he said the actual weight on his scale was 1.8kg. He has sold out but is not taking pre-order deposits for a 2nd run.

    I have the red version and it's pretty awesome. I had zero expectations and wasn't initially planning on getting it, but I was bored one day and ordered it - man, what a great surprise!

    I've got the camo version on preorder as well. I totally recommend getting one or both of the molds. Really well made figure, fun, and weighs a ton!

    EMS weighed it at 2.1kg for mine back in November, but that package was definitely shipped volumetric due to a number of RIHIO kits shipped alongside it, so not sure what it would ship at individually.
