    Yes, thanks so much!

    Also, is this a review sample or a paid order?

    Thanks for the pics man.

    Apart from the molding issues shown by Uranus, three things bother me.

    1) I don't like how Blast-offs arm is gestalt arm-mode is just folded that way.

    2) In the same mode, the kibbly shuttle wings.

    3) The connector peg seems too low in the chest and too close to the gestalt elbow.

    Thanks Uranus and Archieboy.

    1) How are the tightness of the joints? Are they tight or need Future Floor / Nail Polish? Do they stay in pace, or do parts shake, fall down. Does it feel better than Fortis / Bovis in hand?

    2) Locking Tabs / Mechanisms in bot and alt modes, are there plenty of them, for all important parts. Or are they wably like some of the TFC Uranos jets? I consider Voyager Springer / sandstorm and MMC Fortis/Bovis to have very good locking tabs for all modes, so you can compare to those if possible.

    3) How is the paint app in general. Is it nice and smouth like FP / Bovis, or crap and flakes off like Cubex?

    4) Does it feel heavy like Bovis / Fortis, or does it feel light like the MP Cars? Comparing plastic to those, does it feel good, better, much worse? Sorry, don't have any FP products at the moment.

    5) In bot mode, is it about the same size as Bovis / Fortis, or smaller?

    Anything else worth noting that you liked or didn't like?

    Thanks in advance.

    Can the rocket launchers attach to the sides of the legs? Similar to FP Flameblast

    That would make the wings on those look a little less akward.
    Would look something like this

    1) Joint is ok and don't need nail poish. Bovis is better than WB01

    2) WB01 like some of the TFC Uranos jets

    3)

    4) Plastic and paint work like Bovis 70%-80%

    5)
