    Yeah I really don't get why they want translucent plastic at all for the weapons. It just looks so out of place and is going to ruin the overall look of these guys if only some of them have it.

    But hey more pics:

    FoC style artillery mode.

    And his turret peg hole is 5mm compatible so you can stick a whole range of different weapons on in its place:

    He also has the four peg holes on top of the turret and the two on his hull so theirs a lot of different weapon setups possible with him in vehicle mode.

    Just got mine. Very nice. Probably not the best time to be following hot on the heels of Scoria but this is MP Brawl in my mind. Everything is nice, tight and solid. You wouldn't know the upper body is quite hollow by holding it and messing around. Posability very good...even the shoulders can get good movement being so close to the body. If the shoulders could have been pulled out it would have been even better.

    I'll have a mess around in alt mode/leg mode in a bit when I get chance. All being said I'm very happy. Better than Air Burst.....bring on Swindle!

    EDIT - and one for fun....delivery day buddies!

    Nope from Omegalock, Scoria was from Kapow though. Good spot on the screw covers, they were in the box and now on the figure, cheers!

    Arrr.. I'm expecting him from there too.. fingers crossed he shows today (was only posted yesterday though :( )

    No worries about the covers -just worried they were missing for you!


    I'm not supposed to be spending ANY money.. had to stop with Feral Rex, but had to have this guy.. and (checks other half not looking) hoping to get Scoria from Masterforce when I get paid LOL ;)

    I love and can't wait for this guy, but his shoulders do look a little weird considering the very nice proportions of everything else.

    Seems like Warbotron's motto is "98% of the way to perfect. 2% fucking with you."

    If they could be pulled out a bit it would have been utter perfection. It is what it is and in hand it's not as bad as the rest of the figure is so good. Considering the closness he has fantastic shoulder articulation:

    and balance:

    They lost me after seeing that you hafta remove the top of the tank for transformation. :( 


    Had it been able to stay attatched like Air Burst's thruster guns I could've ignored the partsforming, but having to remove it ruins the illusion for me.

    Nice and neat underneath:

    Leg mode:

    [​IMG]

    Combiner port, I don't think there is any movement at all on it...at least I can't move it. Knee articulation must be on Onslaught:

    [​IMG]

    Any requests just shout. I fucking love this guy....so solid, easy to transform, intuitive, very articulated. Full of win.

    My understanding is that the clock started once BBTS received their shipment of Air Burst. So going back through this thread it seems the first "in stock" post was #6100 on 4/4/14. So 3 months from that date would be sometime around the end of next week...things are not looking good considering it appears that they are ramping up Swindle's production right now. They would need to ship Air Burst this week at the latest to even come close to meeting their deadline.

    It seems to me they are focused on getting all the figures to BBTS before other retailers have even one. One sentence from them would clear this up, but I guess they have no interest in providing it -- not to fans and not to the other retailers like TFSource.
