    Mine arrived on Sunday from BBTS. Once my batteries arrive, I'll share some pics. He's pretty damned amazing IMHO.

    Currently waiting for mine from ShowZ, so excited! Can someone tell me how much does the EMP Head cost, and where can I get one?

    About half the price of the figure itself.

    Hit up dino model on Facebook or Instagram. You're looking at around $73 shipped. Pricey but the quality is excellent, and when you look at what is paid for upgrade kits for Generations gear, it's comparatively if not better value for money. In that roundabout way.

    Right? It's really cool how as time passes, and you look at the designs more, you start to notice new vehicle details.

    There are things I've continued noticing in movie designs to this day!

    I've noticed more things about ROTB Prime.
    IMG_6804.jpeg You see that silver slab under Prime's windows? The color and rivets resemble the stripe of the truck.

    IMG_1144.png
    Though it could be the door since the door handle is there. But the rivets are different. IMG_1147.jpeg
    And that silver bar in that area kind of looks like the part of the bull bar. IMG_1146.jpeg IMG_1145.jpeg

    Goddammit, you guys were right about Amazon. They delayed Prime till next month...




    So fuck it, I bought him from ShowZ, and I'll see that in a week.

    You won't regret it. Just got my EMP head and well, it's night and day comparatively. I knew the unmasked sculpt was going to be fantastic as the threezero one is a real letdown, but didn't think the difference would be so pronounced on the masked face.

    Just.. wow.

    Looks great! Though the reason there’s such a pronounced difference in the face mask is because they inaccurately made sections of the mask significantly darker than they should be.

    ShowZ's had their stock for a good while now. It wasn't till a couple days ago where I canceled my Amazon order and got it from them.

    Actually, while I'm here schizo-posting, I wanna point out ThreeZero's odd habit of making Movie Prime faces darker than they should be. IMG_9170.jpeg IMG_1375.jpeg IMG_5992_Original.jpeg IMG_1380.jpeg
    It looks less like a weathered silver and more like just grey.
    I attempted to make it look less dark on my ROTF Prime but I don't think I made a huge difference...I've got work to do.
    IMG_9131.jpeg
    I'll try and fail to do the same to ROTB Prime once I get him!

    But somehow they got it right on TLK Prime. IMG_1382.jpeg
