    I'm posting this here and in the ToyWorld Bii thread, so sorry for any crossover readers.

    Does anyone have both Toyworld Bii (Bumblebee) and the UT Sharkies who could post or PM a pic of them side-by-side?

    Thanks.

    I finally got around to opening my set and they were all missing their tail maces! Damned annoying but I've emailed BBTS and hopefully they'll be able to ship me some replacements.

    As for the figures themselves... aesthetically they're wonderful. Really cool in both modes, nice transformation which isn't immediately obvious and subtly shifts everything just so, personally love the proportions, and overall a lot of character.

    They're definitely a fixer, though. The horns are OK for display but dreadful for even picking the things up. Probably just use a little varnish to narrow the holes, see if that gives them the grip to stay in. Mine also have quite a few pretty loose joints. The leader's neck and one of the other's forearms are the main offenders. The head I can live with (if anything, it gives him more character) but the arm I'll have to tighten up with some tape or some such. The legs are all just OK, stability-wise. They'll hold a pose, just about. Might need to do a little work there to make them re-pose and wobble-proof, though!

    All in all, amazing little figures - just a massive shame mine came tail-less!
