    Damn. I want this perfect edition. But it would be my 4th venture into this set. I wish the chrome set had this purple and green. The main thing I hate the most about my chrome set are the RED translucent windows.

    I may wait for another “perfect” edition. This one is missing green thighs options. I’ll wait for a perfect TOY edition with chrome and all the different accessories. I’m sure another version of Constructor is in the works in the near future. They are milking this mold.

    I’m not 100% sure on that. I do recall hearing about people breaking their shoulder joints and heard something about pulling them out to move them. But, I’ve also seen people just move them like normal with no issue. I err on the side of caution and pull the shoulders out move them and released them back in to hold the position. Had no issues doing that.

    Here’s a quick pic/comparison of both the TW-C07 (left) and TW-C07X (right). Only got one pic for now. It was delivered at 5:30 (a bit late for me). Thanks UPS! Been messing with them on and off swapping/trying different things. I put my custom painted head on the X version. I also had a set of the green the thigh pieces so checked for color and they match perfectly so I swapped them out.

    Colorwise the greens are exactly the same. Purples differ obviously. The X’s purple reminds me of the Hasbro devy. Pretty much the regular set is perfect for the toy representation and the X for the toon. Except the knees should be green as well in my opinion. Of note the greys on the original box set are now blacks on the X. There’s also some slight variances to the paint that is applied in some areas like the black and yellow stripes on the right shoulder. They’re thicker on the X. The QC looks really good on this set as well. That’s it for now. Been a long day. Time for some drinks.

    Thanks! For sure. I still can’t believe the “Perfect” edition did not come with green thigh pieces as well. This hobby and how they do one or two colors different just to capitalize on the right colors later pisses me off.

    I'm definately going to steal that idea and rock the X version with the original green thighs. That brighter purple hits all the right cartoon feels for me.

    After all the stressing I did about which version and the silver thighs on the PE, I’m super happy with it. Everything went together easy, joints are all good. I somehow prefer the silver thighs now. Breaks up all the green. Cancelled my preorder for the cel shaded. This is my one and only Devvy.

    Oh god damn it. I was waiting to see if they would rerelease the yellow one with the upgraded parts but I'm to much of a sucker for this kind of thing.

    You and me both, brother lol.

    I had the green thigh pieces/G1 Head/Purple barrel on pre-order at BBTS going on like ... two years now?

    I was “lucky” in the beginning to get just the heel spurs and lat fillers; but I never got the other pieces.

    I can’t stand the stupid Studio-Ox head. I can live with the silver thigh pieces and green mixing barrel though ... but it’s not ideal.

    I was waiting for payday to pick up the perfect edition but then ShowZ sold out of it. No biggie, I have the 1st run and really didn't want to get a similar colored version (not yet). The orange version has garnered my interest but I haven't heard any news on it. Has it been cancelled?

    Dang does TW know that molds break down with repeated use? These must be starting to run into some problem areas by now. I mean if they were originally built like brick **** houses maybe they're still strong but dang they're running 24/7 for 3 years now!!

    Cannot wait!! I have the premium edition on preorder from Showz. Stoked!!! I mean it's a limited set of 200 so for me it's a no brainer for sure.

    Does anyone know a reputable site that has the X version for sale still that will ship to US that isn't TFSource? Looks like Show Z is out of stock.
