    Yeah. Their MP TM Cheetor is amazing. The new articulation is great (love the waitst/ab design) but the worst part is the upper arms. Too smooth/undetailed. Very plain color. The upper arms look like they belong on a different toy, compared to everything else. I'd worry that much of Silverbolt would wind up like that. The original toy was very very plain and almost everything was the same plastic color.

    None that I've seen, sadly.

    It's also been an unholy amount of time that has passed without ANY new BW figure news (outside of the official Kingdom line).

    No MP's, no 3P's... NOTHING! :cry

    I know transform Element was working on a legend scorponok to go with their rattrap and black arachnia. But at last nothing from them since covid.

    David Lee has made Mp inferno and is working on mp terrorsaur, and mp scorponok. His inferno is up for pre-order if you collect Mps.

    Well, in his first episode, Rampage seemed way bigger than everyone, then he seemed to shrink a little.

    Yes! I got my strange friend from there.

    I will warn - my left shoulder cracked in the known weak spot.

    The extra parts are great. Really helps with posability.

    Two spine piece ball joints. They replace the originals and are much stiffer.

    Looking at some of my past orders from them, it seems to have taken anywhere from 1-2 months. Hopefully you'll get on the faster end of things

    Thanks. If they're fast in shipping, I'll definitely order from them again. What's this about the shoulder's weak spot I've been reading about? I haven't seen those mentioned in any of the video reviews.
