    To put it politely, Freedom Leader was a steaming hot piece of garbage that I wouldn’t give as a hate-i-versary gift to my worst enemy or my crush’s boyfriend....

    Thank you! Yeah I'm very happy with my decision to chrome the stacks, as well as most of the silver parts in truck mode.
    Silver spray paint. I think I'm gonna make it darker tho, doesn't match the rest of the figure.

    As somebody eagerly awaiting his own copy, why? What was wrong with it? Haven't heard that particular opinion before so it'd be good to be warned.

    There's a lot to unpack here so I'd suggest you just check out the official thread. The horror stories go back at least 30 pages.

    The short version is, even his most ardent defenders say to leave him in robot mode and barely pose him... Which simply makes him a less poseable, more fragile, less screen-accurate version of the 3A Deluxe.

    @JoshimusPrime93

    Guys the reason I didn't share my opinion earlier, is b'coz I don't want to relive the traumatic experience of owning TW Prime.

    Good riddance!

    I can’t seem to find where it’s stated what batteries to use in his head. I looked at the daim choc Facebook page and the batteries they use in their post don’t fit.

    Do any of you guys know which ones work?

    Cheers to anyone who is going to preorder this. While I wish they make challenger v2 instead, but seems like many people still don't have the original color anyway

    With the pandemic... there's not too much possibilities for a V2 version (with new head, painted fingers, paintedneck plate, painted elbow articulation, painted doors tab, etc, etc). But surely it would be a product very popular.
