    Thanks for the heads up. I ordered him this afternoon before heading off to work so maybe he'll be shipped out before cny. Even if it isn't, I don't mind waiting a few weeks to save some cash.

    It's printed at the top of his auction that he won't be back until Feb 3rd, so don't expect anything to ship out before then.

    So, B.B.T.S has tentakil estimated to arrive first quarter. I hope we get colored prototypes soon, especially looking at photos like this.

    I hope so too. I love figures with articulated tentacles, and I love Tentakil.

    :drool: The extra bits of blue look so good! I love what you did with the sword as well.
    Man, it is getting harder and harder to wait on this set.

    You know, I've entertained the idea of keeping a Transformer in my office just for lulz, but only like a minibot or something like that, not a combiner. Though maybe once FT Omega Supreme launches....

    Silly question #3465 When combining the arms, is there a secret trick to getting the slots out (from where the head of the limb is) or is it just really, REALLY stiff? Any feedback on this would be very much appreciated!

    It's just really stiff. But there is a trick! Use one of the gun mode handles. They go into the combiner slots and they will give you some extra leverage.

    Getting rid of that yellow really helps unify the colors even more.

    Thats an old G1 head I modded on.

    I'd really like to STRIP the yellow paint off and have bare green plastic---but it's yellow. That's nigh-impossible to fully remove. And it may have even stained the underlying plastic. I'm thinking black. (This goes for both ray and lobster)

    (But no "bright lemon yellow" at all is best. The G1 had very little, ONLY for eyes, and it was orange-yellow.)

    You can let some of the painted parts sit overnight in Purple Power, but the other clear parts you have no choice but to paint or cast.
