    The tail fin is easier to get out if you flip the torso down and push it out from underneath, pops out without any hassles that way.

    The guns won't peg in on mine in shuttle mode either.

    Sooo... How come this toy is out, but has no videos, and DX9 is not out, but has 2 videos?

    They are just slow. I've spent tons (embarrassing amounts) with them & they are much slower than say a year or 2 ago. Now expect your order to go in the warehouse & stay 4 biz days before shipping, even with current in stock items. I'm not going to champion other stores by name but I ordered from 3 stores all at once twice this year & received the items in hand before my BBTS order left the warehouse.

    I'm not slandering them, you'll get your order & it's always been packed well & correct. They don't have free shipping & have the slowest warehouse of any competition but they have a big selection & even packages marked sub-standard look display worthy to me. I don't care about boxes much, but if I did they excel at that

    I know right! me 2 I spent sooooo many paycheck directly to them and the service is so much longer than 2-3 years ago... usually within 2 days they already shipped the items.... now is like you say... 4 biz day minimum... this sucks.

    Anyway I did received it, I been playing a LOT with it... the instruction are GODAWFUL... 50% of the steps are not even shown in the instructions... but I did managed to find every little secrets this fella had... and he is AMAZING.

    I made a video review using my new SJ4000 camera (testing it out).

    It took a longer time than I expected it, because I had to edit a bit of the video (removing the fish-eye effect and correcting the colours since my lighting wasn't so good)... and it is now on youtube...

    Anyway here's the link:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bSgsCYGOC3U

    Enjoy!

    For some reason it mentions the video can only be in 360p... WTH? I uploaded 1080p video!! Anyone knows about this?

    If you uploaded at 1080p that should be available soon. YouTube takes a while to process the higher resolutions, but the video is able to go live as soon as the 360p is available.

    I might get this one. Chigurh is nice and all, but I like my trains with smokestacks. I wonder why DX9 didn't give him one..?

    This is one of those figures I would have picked up a few years ago just cause it looks neat but there are so many must have figures for me this year already that I have to pass for now.

    OK, tweaked robot mode a bit (mainly the head):

    And here's the best-received versions of the other modes again:

    Am only seeing this now. Not a 3rd party person but I think it's super neat how the train mode is pretty much all black yet the other modes are predominantly white.
