    Pretty nice! Too bad the TW-C07D was cancelled. I had it on pre-order as Showz for $260 or something. Other places it was around $500 . I think Toyworld screwed up on the price to vendors during their separation with Zeta. Probably decided to cancel because of that and postponed. Hope they reconsider.

    Yes he is.
    I've had to fix some QC on mine, Combined Arm ratchets way to tight on shoulder rotation and outwards and inwards (both springs). Sqweezed and bent the springs in both Scrapper and Bonecrusher. Ratchet wasn't working in Long Haul for the Ab Crunch so he was floppy there. It was just out of alignment.
    Stuff like that here and there. It is quite satisfying after getting the ratchets buttery, etc.
    The black version is currently my favourite. The extra gun metal shine from the die cast parts plus the glossy black is top notch.
    Got another black set on clearance to paint around with in the future. That yellow should be gold and he could do with more crimson red here and there. Wish I could obtain an extra set of red windows / clear parts on the additional black version. The clear green works though.

    I swear I have but I'd have to go searching again. I just know I get excited then realize it's yellow haha.

    If folks really are getting green for under 450 then I'm more tempted to wait and see rather than pre-order the PE.

    I'm disappointed. They just announced the latest “X” model while other three versions (orange, cell shaded and Old Green) are still in the fog and no one knows when they will see the light of the day.
    This is really a bad way to organize the work.

    For those who say Toyworld is saturating the market, today TF-Direct listed the new C07X version, and a few hours later it was sold out, lol

    I guess it's also saying no one wants to buy this from TF Source, no rush on that one

    I was thinking about this, probably thought about it for to long, and had my mind made up for me and missed out. Oh well

    Dang, thanks for this! I don't own this version of Devy but appreciate your comparison image. If only TW or GT would release a Shattered Glass version. I'd go for that for sure. Box set of course. :)

    I have been considering getting some version of Constructor for a while now, does this X release look like the one to get? The metallic one looked nice but I suppose I missed the boat on that, but that may end up being a good thing in the end if these molding improvements in the "perfect" edition are actually worth it. Though I'm sure this isn't the last repaint that we'll see either, so who knows.

    Also, has anyone ever used the Reprolabel sets for these guys? I am partial to the notion to adding some G1 toy flair, but I'm concerned that it'll just make them look tacky and difficult to resell if it comes to that.

    True enough; I just know he said he didnt wanna get hit with that $500 charge all at once so I figured; while more (and yellow not green), the singles would be a better option.

    They have it cheaper than TFS too.

    Interesting thing, their terms and service seemed to suggest that their shipping cost includes customs and duties.

    Just like the crystal orange version, "Never" Im guessing.

    Which sucks, since its the only versions I actually want. Getting rid of my V2 when it comes so I can fund it.
