Are you referring to TE-01 or TE-03?
Not that any of us have heard. TE-01's sprue marks got a little worse or at least the ones on the front of his ankles. Other than that, he's the same. Don't know about Mirage as the rerelease isn't out yet.
Got the ship notification.
As did I.
Mine as well.
You applied for the ankle replacement from ShowZ or did the new leg come together?
My Chinese seller has a new batch, but he says there is no after-sale service for this.
Wondering if ShowZ is does replacement parts.
I just used a nail an hammer to gently get the pin out.
Mine just arrived. Nice figure. Nice tight joints everywhere, transformation is similar to TE-01 in that there’s quite a lot going on, but pretty easy to figure out. Mine didn’t have instructions, and it was easy to figure out without them.
Looks like the hips on mine are ok? Nothing that seems to affect the transformation, anyway - let me know if I’ve missed something!
Only slight downside is the paint on one of the leg side panels is a bit messed up. Is there anywhere easy to get that set of water slides for it?
Here’s some pics (I missed folding out the front in alt mode):
My go to is Uncle Billy Shop.
I was expecting green ankles and messed up hips, but mine arrived yesterday and it's absolutely fine. It's a damn good figure for $50.
Mine should arrive tomorrow. Crossing fingers for good hips and blue ankles!
Mine is taking its time. Just hit "port of departure" today after shipping eight days ago. That's ok, though. I'm excited to get him but this is an upgrade from another version of the character (sphinx) so I'm not champing at the bit like I would be for a character I don't own yet.
Glad to hear the reissues are arriving without any hideous deformities, since I didn't have the willpower to pass up that $50 price.
I'm expecting mine to take its time getting to Canada... but should be here in time for Christmas at the very least!
Has anyone who did buy the $50 reissue from ShowZ have either the green ankles or bad hips? Mine should arrive today and the gamble I made buying it has me excited/curious/amped-up for it to get here and find out.
My copy from ShowZ just came today. Blue ankles. I guess I won't be 100% certain until I try to transform him, but I think the hips are ok. It looks like his hip skirts are almost touching the tops of his thighs, and I think that the faulty hips lower the entire leg so there's more of a gap.
Mine just arrived and looks to have proper hips and blue ankles too! Whew!
One thing that I found was weird, The head/face on the figure is the stoic look, I have a second, smiling face, but then also separately a second, identical head with the stoic face. Anyone know why you’d need a second head with the same stoic face? Should this have been a different face? And if you can replace the face, why a second head?
If you look carefully there are some subtle differences on the second stoic head. It also doesn't have the screw in the back. I'm not sure what the thinking is there.
Pretty sure I saw on a video somewhere that, the eyes are different.. Think they are bit bigger on the spare head
Regardless of it's flaws, its still a damn fine figure and the best representation of Mirage out there!!
