    I got Jetfire recently. He's OK though it look like the sort of gave up a it when designing some aspects - i'd even suggest that he might have been rushed - otherwise the air intakes might have been better designed and the chest plate might have had an alternative mode as a belly cover in jet mode - as it comes so close to fitting on there and all it needs is to compact slightly and it would.

    They also didn't include as many weapon mounting options as i'd like too. But as a display piece he's OK I guess. As a Toy I'm a bit concerned about the design of some pieces being a breakage risk over time. especially his ankle latches and his various ratchets.

    I'm also wondering if I need to take him to pieces to reinforce his outer leg movement too.

    The only thing I don't like about Skyfire so far is the inability to genuflect. Which made me think the next time someone is looking for good questions to ask devs at a con: When designing a fig, how high a priority is the ability to attain kneeling poses?
    As far as posing goes, I'd prefer all my figs be able to do so.

    Do these help? Or were you looking for more of a ‘bend the knee’ Game of Thrones vibe, like a bowing kneel?

    Yeah, I'd like him to be able to do that without having to lean way to one side but the shin is so much longer than the thigh. I'm also sad when a fig has the right leg proportions but the foot won't move out of the way. I'm not so good at posing so I like when the figs make it easier on me.

    And they say us Aussies don't have culture. Good to Omega is embracing the Australian way of life. (God, I've got to get myself an Omega soon...)

    Both Target and Amazon has Omega Supreme with $25 off. Albeit, Target has the toys promo - $10 off of $50, $25 off of $100.

    are they tight? I didn't know of any rivets in the swivels, i'd be fine not swapping anything... but, I was hoping to make a tough cop look.

    i get irrationally happy when a figure can properly take a knee. that and "hands on hips" are the two most common poses i try to get.
