    got my tcp one in. the glue on one crotch piece is missing so i have to glue it back on, but otherwise he's fine. not as posable as op like others have said, with way weaker, uh, buttflaps, but color-wise he outshines op. the blue is stunning and crisp.

    ravage kinda sucks unfortunately, would've rather had a non-tra... non-folding one that could splay his front legs out, especially because the transformation joints are so tight that even in cat mode it's hard to get him as accurate as he's supposed to be.

    No clue if anyone else is impatient, but this guy is in stock at Sideshow for $249.99 + $27ish shipping. Had a coupon and a bit of rewards to bring him down to $205, was sick of waiting on TFS.

    Ravage's legs and abdomen can be extended, but be careful, the tolerances are awfully tight and wouldn't want to break anything.

    I knew it could do something, but was too lazy to find out and didn't want to break it. Looks much better this way, thanks!

    My Ravage literally came broken out of the box. Just picking it up from the packaging, one little tab fell off.
    It's one of the leg tabs the directions specifically warn to be careful of. I never even had a chance to break it myself! :p 

    It doesn't really inhibit Ravage in either mode without it though...but the little black gash where the tab used to be is a little unsightly.

    Now I've just been wondering...do I just take a drop of silver paint and disguise the little gash? Or do I contact for replacement

    These things are up there in price and I personally would want to have an undamaged item.

    I don’t think they would ask for you to send back the item in order to get a replacement.

    In the end it’s up to you and it never hurts to ask.

    did you activate your warranty?

    i've got soundwave, optimus and blitzwing from this line. i'm honestly more disappointed with threezero/3a as time goes on. between the constant delays that they don't actually tell anyone about (optimus, tlk megatron? idk if they were up front about him or only responded to inquiries, and soundwave at least) and the fact every figure i've gotten has had at least one shitty bit it's a pretty big turn off. optimus' head and hands being impossible to keep on him or swap, soundwave's unglued crotch piece and blitzwing's buttflaps and headspikes, and now when i picked up ravage from the shelf after 2 weeks his eyes just randomly popped off his head without even manipulating it in addition to the rockets being loose as all get out. for figures that are $2-300 and supposed to be high end it's some pretty shoddy work.

    topping it all of is their stupid warranty policy. i always file my warranties for products away and was disappointed to read threezero's have to be "activated" ten days after you receive the product ffs.

    i can't wait for threezero shockwave to arrive 12 years after the intended date and be missing an arm at this rate lol

    Question for those who've transformed the Ravage. The instructions seem to indicate that the rear legs have a hip ball joint that you're meant to rotate up before you swing the rear assembly up to fill the gap under the tail.

    These little hip ball joint things only seem to rotate on the left side of mine. I can rotate it up to fill a little notch. But when I try to do the same for the right side, it seems to get stuck half way through the rotation so it can fill that little notch.

    Has anyone experienced this issue and know of a fix or workaround?

    Got it rotating using a pair of pliers. Probably a good thing those joints are tight I guess!

    Another quality release from ThreeZero. I am somewhat disappointed by the reuse of Prime's "skeletal structure", it really looks out of place given the boxy nature of Soundwave's body.
