    Seizan is the first one of these to include a bot mode stand adapter proper. He is more back heavy than Suiken especially if you store the cannons, I guess they knew. Initially I was confused as to why he cost more than Suiken but I get why with the sword.

    I hate when this happens. My TFSource shippment arrived today (shipped via DHL and USPS). It looks like the box was in an American Football game and both Seizan's box and the Upgrade kit for the Haslab Victory Saber are really damaged. I have never had a clean shipment from DHL. I am also really disappointed at how poorly the items were packed. I expected better.

    Huh? Followed both the video and the instructions. The ankle tilt was just twisted too far.

    The doors can swing out under the feet to the side of the foot. Read the instructions as there's a specific order of things.

    btw there's flip out pegs on the "top" of the two guns included with Seizan, where do those go? Not seeing them listed in instructions or official media anywhere

    Nope, the train door half should be folded 90 degrees and that little part should be wedged up into the triangular hole made for it. You can see it in this pic and I believe Wotafa's review. In the image below the feet are extended all the way out. If you compress them more that little part will fit perfectly into the triangular gap on the grey part of the inner leg. I believe the feet have a different transformation than Suiken. On my copy if you don't fold the door half in the foot will not sit flat. You also have to partially rotate the door half on Suiken to get his foot to sit flat.

    Edit: This image from Wotafa's review shows it best.

    Sorry last edit I promise: This is from the official TT transformation video.

    These are the best pics I’ve seen of Seizan so far. Great stuff!

    But this makes me sad to hear.

    Just arrived!

    upload_2023-10-17_21-30-49.png

    He's fantastic!

    Only problems I have are:
    - When going back into train mode, it can take a lot of force to tab in the sides of the partsforming box into the front of the train.
    - When going back into train mode, the two sliding panels on his side can cause problems due to the small hooks on the bottom.
    - The small blue cardboard piece tends to move about and block panels. I have removed it and will leave that cavity empty.

    Though I'm hoping both will get better with more transformations.

    In takara's infinite wisdom those instructions will probably be included with Kaen. Oh well.

    Seizan is better than Suiken. Hate to say it, but it's true.

    Unofficial storage if you don't want to put it below the tracks.

    so i have had him for a few hours.

    main and only complaint on my copy is... dude need some heels with the back pack he is just more back heavy the suiken. and with suiken you could mess with the calf wheels to act as heel supports. do to the molding of the altmode you can not do that with siezen

    if i have him holding the sword and one gun he is stable enough but forget bot mode weapon storage with out a stand
