    Just got my invoice request for Frost Light from ShowZ. This month may well kill me.

    Wow, both of those 'reviews' were painful to watch.

    Hell's donkeys mate, you're not wrong. Doesn't Awesome Action Figures bloke do any research or look at promo stuff before getting things? I knew the knives could store in the knees in robot mode and I don't even have it yet! :S

    Kinda makes me want to do my own video when I get it tbh.

    Those vids were definitely hard to watch, but theres some cool stuff in there. I really didn't realize that thing had so much diecast.

    The diecast internal ribcage is awesome.

    I am worried about the plastic quality, though, something about the footage gave me the impression that its something softer, like earlier fansproject stuff. Not sure that'll hold up long term for ratchet joints, especially that shoulder with the diecast bits.

    I've been *eagerly* awaiting these. I saw that they were available on Amazon Japan a few days ago but i wasn't able to order through them.

    I'll give the American sites one more week before i order through Aliexpress.


    EDIT: Who am i kidding? I'm buying this now :D  The Aliexpress seller accepts Paypal for those that might be hesitant. It's $20 more on Ebay.

    I recieved my first of the little figures today from BBTS, Suppressor, and even though it's quite small, it feels like a very good quality toy - sort of a mix between JoyToy or Acid Rain levels of detail along with a bit more playability, kind of like Exo Squad figures from back when. Suppressor is the one who comes with the two long guns, and they both fit in his hands well, the plastic feels flexible and playable with a nice range of motion including more joints than I thought at first. The dropdown hips, ab crunch and well articulated shoulders allow good poses and should also allow interactivity with the vehicles.

    The small box came with a nice plug-in belt piece that holds his WWII style grenade and canteen, and several different clips and armatures that you can use as back mounted weapons storage options. There are no paint apps on the head, so it's a bit dull, but there are nice metallic details and those bear paw insignias that are clean and well applied. Both guns have a paint app as well.

    I definitely am feeling like this line is on its way to become a new favorite of mine - I am a sucker for minifigure/vehicle compatibility like Sigma 6 GI Joes or Exo Squad, and this line appears to be poised to do well in that aspect.

    I'm looking forward to more and differentiated figures in this scale - I'd love to see mecha suits or jump armor as well as some larger scale figures.

    Got all three grunts today! I love them, but yeah the arm joints def have some super tight tolerence for a while, gonna take more futzing to get them smoother.

    But man do they pose well and all their guns are so rad. I'm so happy thumbs up hands are a standard feature.

    Looked like the front of the truck was hanging open at the end.

    I do love transformations that integrate a cockpit space for a pilot buddy, it was one of the charms of the Jizai designed afunction(x) headmasters to me

    this….could be a Bayverse movie prime, right? It’s a madman version of a long nose truck. I only had the first leaderclass prime from ROTFand that had a nutty transformation. This see,s to be very involved too, but..,efficient

    Got the Ursus Guard on his way to be my first sampling of this line. I'm hoping/planning to be able to swap the heads to make these guys into 'animal dudes' like Rocket Raccoon to work next to my 18th humans.

    Cool pictures, these bits really caught me eye as I haven't seen them used in any of the videos so I guess they're hiding the connections for the combination.
