    Did the surgery tonight, my first pin punch! Spent a bit of time finding the best way to do this and just took the arm off and punched the pin into an eraser. Plain sailing after the first one. Thanks @Scoobysnacks for the tips! I now also have the option of blue tinted windows (with an insert of some sort) or matching black (to the side windows)

    My FrankTEnstein is rocking v3 lower body, V3 arms and shoulder ratchets, V1 smokestacks and V1 upper body.

    Love the minor tweaks as the posability is much improved. Like getting a new figure!

    EDIT: Does the V2 have the same amount of ratchet indents in the legs? Couldn't recall what's been said and a quick search in this thread seemed to suggest v3 and V2 have the same shoulder ratchet indents only (?). @Scoobysnacks can you help please as you have a V2 and v3?

    Is the SG version already out? Haven't seen new pics of it save for the ones in Showz's store.

    I honestly don't want to to throw any shade as the seller is very reputable, so I know it was 100% a mistake. I only posted about it because it's a little bit of a let down. I know the seller will come through and take care of all my issues so im not worried at all.

    Also I understand what @Charter57 was talking about in regards to the screwdriver... It's not even remotely the right size for the screw in the head lol.

    Some have mentioned the V3 smokestacks don't have as nice a finish. Mine weren't that great so I swapped them.
    yup, it's out.

    Yep, got mine yesterday. It's fantastic. Probably going to sell my Nemesis version now, as I think SG blows it out of the water. I also had the Fans Hobby SG Prime and the official MP10SG, and I think this is the best rendition of SG Prime I've seen (and I'm not a G1 purist either, it just looks damn good).
