    I dont understand why people dread this transformation, really. I've done it like a dozen times forward and back since getting him 5 days ago and it's quite straight forward actually.

    I think it's kind of overwhelming with how much stuff happens in just the legs... especially when you compare them to the transformation that takes place in the chest. But I agree, it's not bad once you know how to move everything around.

    It's a step up in difficulty from their previous figures but it's definitely not annoying, I enjoy most of it

    Alsooo happy really late birthday Gabo! Awesome pictures!

    Because most people have only done it once or twice and it's difficult the first couple times. I don't tend to just go back and forth and back and forth between modes all the time with my transformers, so it takes longer to get the amount of practice you've had. I think for me it's a couple things (although I don't hate the transformation by any means): first it's remembering in what order to do things. Some pieces won't budge or go together correctly unless you've done other things. Secondly it's the fact that the plastic is tight, hard and SHARP. Almost no rounded edges in the pieces. 3P stuff tends to be sharper and I guess my hands are soft.

    Yeah that's true
    When I get a figure I usually take it everywhere and transform it all the time :p 

    Also, the stop motion transformation video is quite useful to know the order of the steps

    Not as good of a deal, But TF-Direct has 1 Dragoon in stock for $140, and they have a $5 coupon for orders above $100 so you can get it for $135

    I was in the same situation, finally decided to buy DS Split and Battle Damaged Rendsora instead. Can not get past the scale and slim figure of his.

    the head alone shows there's a good amount of line work missing. That and the eyes need improvement. Like the head has the basic shape and some details, but there is a lot missing. Even in just the eyes and nose you see a ton of detail missing. The nose should have an extra layer to it, and his eyes needed eyelids inside the socket rather than just an eye.
