    Ah, definitely see the hip extended now. PvP's vid made him look smaller mass-wise as well somehow. Hmm.... odd. well, the larger the better so that pic has me happier.

    (btw I don't own challenger, so I'm not too familiar with his size as well)

    In fact, I'd argue that being critical of things even when you like them is the responsible thing to do if you're a serious consumer. At least, when the price tag is $170. Some buyers seem to confuse offering up your own dislikes or critiques of a figure with trying to rain on someone else's parade... but you can tell the difference if you look.

    Critique: "You might like the look of the alt mode, but I am not crazy about. I think Reason X is a major flaw that Figure Y didn't have and I hope they do this differently myself."

    Being a whiny dipshit: "Best one they made? Yeah, no. Figure sucks, man." Usually has the term 'fanboi' forced into it.

    Nobody likes a whiny dipshit. But they exist.

    One small nitpick with the PVP review is that he didn't close the panels on the back of the cab. Makes quite a big difference.

    PVP didn't properly do the Alt mode transformation, the rear right side tires are not aligned straight (18:06 mark and at 18:13 you can see it doesn't touch the bottom) and there slightly more gaps on the front side too vs ToyBase, although Mangmotion had it worse. And as mentioned above for the panels on the back as well. I think I would take this one is a very complex transformation, not easy to pull off for noobs (I'm one) and have to be very careful in order not to chip off and have everything proper. I think EmGo will do a perfect transformation, because he did that horrible ToyWorld Knight Orion much better than Jobby, PvP, Ben.



    Mangmotion, notice on the side skirts and fender horribly aligned.

    PrimevsPrime, notice the gap difference for those left and right panels on the front which are prone to chipping of paint.

    ToyBase did it perfectly as you can see but still his copy also had that paint chip, probably when trying to figure out how to do this..

    As for the Figure, yep this is Unique Toys top class achievement. Literal "Black Magic" transformation as many say. For me I'm only into kibble free bots and Bayverse only this has to be the definitive release. A shame as PvP is also mentioning their last figure, that's really a big damn blow. I wish they did more of the AOE and TLK bots, since the Robot modes in those movies have no visible car parts (I like before designs too but just a small aspect that I like these designs more)

    I think I'll wait for Emgo's JTI video.

    I’m so anxious. Nero is scheduled for delivery Wednesday. That’s a new record for me with Show Z. It was just shipped on 6/23! My last experience was with Freedom Leader and that took 2.5 months to make it.

    Ironically I think the longest part of this guy’s journey for me will be waiting on Showz to actually send it out.

    Okay wasn’t as long as I remember, but 6/28/20 to 8/14/20. It was slow boat season. The pandemic was really slowing things down then.

    All right, that makes sense. I was gonna bring up the pandemic screwing with ship speed. Things sort of seem to be getting relatively normal.

    Even still 1 week is outstanding. A friend just place an order with them about a month ago and it took 2.5 weeks for his to be delivered.

    Nothing broken.

    Preordered (full payment) from iacon.store in august 2020.
    Got the shipping notice five days ago.
    5 days from china to germany seems pretty fast.

    Got all excited when I got a notice from Chosen prime a couple days ago for this and TW Hot Rod. Turns out it was a glitch. :(  Hopefully soon.

    Received mine and immediately unbox it. Nothing broken and both horns are still intact.

    Upon my initial inspection, the horns are not as fragile as we thought and the packaging don't seems to have too big of an issue. So long as the delivery guy doesn't handle your item roughly, you shouldn't be too worried

    Will find time to transform this guy and share my thoughts

    Very good idea. But what are those lighting pieces?
    UT should have included that.
