    Anybody looking for Alert? Bought him but had instant buyer's remorse. He's still MISB and in just looking to get back what I paid for it

    I got Red Baron in today. It's a surprisingly simple transformation given how magic-like it seems that the plane turns into Sceam. Great sculpt and paint, but the plastic feels a bit too fragile. I can't help but worry that I'll snap it at some point. Especially the propeller given how much shit it catches on when I'm transforming it. A lot of the transformation joints are really tight too, so it was a bit panic-inducing to try to move some of these parts hoping I don't snap something.

    The door on the turret gun on mine doesn't stay closed by itself. Kind of annoying, but that accessory will be in a plastic bag until I die, so I don't care. The alternate red head on mine had a broken peg so I couldn't peg it into the body. Will see if I can get a replacement part.

    I did not know that this came with a heavy metal flight stand. That was a nice surprise.

    I'm pretty happy with the figure.

    The big gun has a peg on the inside of the door which should go into the other hand that has a peg hole in it. The second set of hands that is included has peg holes in them unlike the hands that are installed on the figure out of the box.

    I know about the hands, it's just the door just doesn't close properly.

    So I got the blue plane in today, couple questions for anyone else who has him-

    1st, the instructions show the propeller coming off to become a hand weapon. Where does it come off at? Does the blue connector bit come with it? Mine definitely doesn't come off with a tug and I'm worried I'm going to break something if I pull it too hard.

    2nd. The right hand on mine already had a weapon port, so I only have 1 'smooth' hand, and 3 hands with ports, 1 left and 2 right. Is that normal? I would have thought it would have been a set of 2 of each.

    Same on mine that came with the blue one.

    I think you are supposed to have 2 smooth hands and 2 peg hole hands. That was my copy.

    Thanks for the heads up. I'm about to Transform mine. I have WD-40 dry lube and shock jelly to loosen stuff. Hope it does the trick

    EDIT: Yeah the wings are pretty tight on mine. The dry lube made them looser and fixed it. I only used a dab. Don't use any more so the paint doesn't rub off.

    Got mine all transformed. Easy transformation wasn't hard at all. I had to use dry lube on a few different spots. Here is where I used it on:

    Wing panels-make sure to get the metal pin lubed up only a little bit. It is still hard to move it but it has less stress then before
    [​IMG]

    Wing tips/hands- this one also was super tight

    [​IMG]

    Shoulders- these are REALLY tight and its hard to twist his arm.

    [​IMG]

    Here is the WD-40 I used

    I used @Tef 's great review as a guide to transform him. Mine can stand really well and doesn't have any loose parts. The red BB head wasn't broken but the submachine gun panel won't tab in flush just like @CryptiniteDemon 's.

    I got my Mcdonald Joker today also so I had him join the group shot haha. Hope this helps!!!

    For anyone waiting for TFS-Ex / Omegalock to get the various Starscreams in, I asked them about it today on FB and they don't have an ETA yet. Apparently Toyworld have only released them via their own site so far, not sent them to retailers, and the retailers that do have them in stock (e.g. ShowZ) have bought them at full RRP from Toyworld's web store, and are then selling them at a higher price than RRP. (Which seems to be accurate: Red Baron is £133 on ShowZ vs £95 on TFS-Express UK)

    So we'll get them....sometime. I hope not too long, but who knows?

    Thanks, One thing I MISSED in the English version of the video transformation (and I see you dont have also), is on the Chest pannels, there are other pannels inside you can flip open, and they will rest on top of the Neck collar piece and hold the head very steadily plus they fill in the gap.

    I never noticed this as I was doing the video in English, but since I do the French Video much after completing the English one, I noticed it and I included it in my french video, check it out here: @21:07 I flip them open, but I put them wrong a bit and set them correctly @23:42

    Strange that no reviews around...

    I think that's because of over paint. Probably a couple of squeeks and it will work without issues.

    Does anybody have a Green Bulldog or Grey Hornet they might be interested in selling/trading?

    I’ve seen it on AliExpress as recently as last month. Sometimes you have to really dig there as you tend to get 90% unrelated results no matter what you do a search for.

    Well the Red Baron came in - strange how the blue one's joints all seem fine but Red's legs are super loose. Also tried to change the head out and the neck peg just snapped right off of the alternate head - so I tried to put the original back on and that snapped too! Hopefully I can get a replacement from Show.Z...

    Ugh, that neck clip is SUCH a shit idea. I don’t know what they were thinking using that instead of a standard peg. The clip was broken on my extra head straight out if the package. TCP asked Toyworld for a new head for me but I don’t think I’m going to ever take the standard head off and risk further breakage.

    Mine snapped just like that on my red one. Waiting on the replacement from Show Z. Really stupid design choice given how small that piece is.
