    So happy to have missed the first release. I couldn't care less for the missing accessories (I don't think they looked that good, especially the stock), and I really dig the added paint apps. I just hope the QC has improved on this re-release.

    Hi guys, I just wanted to give everyone a bit on news. We were notified that the allocations for Hegemon and Black Orion were sold out and that we would need to pay in full for our order to ensure we would receive our complete order. We have done this to ensure we get plenty of these for our customers, but if you are on the fence here we ask that you get your orders in soon to ensure you get one of these outstanding pieces!

    Thank you in advance,
    Brandon

    Oooo, yeah I'll dip a second time on this I have and love this original. I see they left the red paint off his abs and added to his chest, plus other minor paint changes and I dig it more than I should.

    Alright , Glad to get this guy, well will get 2 of him. I don't care for the crappy extra parts , never thought they looked right anyway.
    Also, we get him for around $100. not the over price of $300.00 plus from sellers on E-Bay, they can keep them now. Unless you want the extra bits, I don't !
    Will be getting Reprolabels up-grade sticker set too, very nice.

    with upgrade kits to hegemon now taking off, i wonder why nobody has bothered to address the leg shape issue.. granted i know its shaped that way so it fits together in alt mode for the handle but for all the flack that quakewave took for his leg profiel being off...hegemon's is far more off. i woudln't even mind if the upgrade were just a cleamshell going over his current legs to make an accurage leg profile and had to be removed for alt mode. lol. i did see one upgrade (echo tf has on shapeways) that addresses a very small part of the shape issue on the rear bottom part of the legs but was surprised nobody else has tried to address it.

    Can't wait to get this figure and customize it . I don't know why I missed the first run, but I was just thinking they would reissue it and price would drop some when the market was flooded . LOL
    Hell, it was looking that he was never going to get re-released until now. That's why he was going for over $300. easy. Anyway, cool he is coming again.

    Echotransformer used to make a really nice add on that did this. Not sure if he's still selling them, but I love mine.

    They are still for sale on shapeways. A bit expensive imo but a possible option

    I've had my eye on those for a while. If they weren't Shapeways prints I'd order them in a second. He needs to have X-Transbots produce them, like his Boosticus kits…

    they look good but only address part of the issue. the entire front portion of hegemon's leg profile is completel flat and...not nearly accurate (the reason i dind't get him in the first place but i am no won board with second version because i don't see another g1 megs coming until a possible future mp).

    Saw the silver paint and immediately thought, too good to be true. Yup, I was right. :D  Cool looking custom though!
