    Pfft. We didn't see him doing a hand stand yet. Or jumping jacks! Until we know if those are supposed to be able to do that, I'm not happy.




    ;)  lol


    Looking awesome and can't wait til this figure is in my hands!

    Well that is very good news indeed. Definitely looked like there was no clearance in Uranus's pictures, and Dr K pretty much confirmed it then. Wonder what's different here?

    Has Fierce Attack actually been realeased yet? All these pictures are saying he is but every website I look at says that he isn't.

    Omegalock and Kapow saying it should be in stock within the next two weeks. Which would suggest their stock is inbound.

    1. i have airburst v1 so his arm mode is a floppy mess unless I change him to the new body included with FA. But other than that i don't have any complaints about his joints.
    - His ankle joints are very tight, Huge ratcheting noise and holds position really well. he also comes with grip pads for the feet in case you find yours sliding around the table too much.
    2. Easier to pose for sure. I find him to be more proportional compared to rex. My Rex to has short stubby arms, a loose skirt that always seem to fall off when adjusting him. Warbo is leaner, the only loose part seems to be the back cannon. (also, if you rotate the forearms he actually has double jointed elbow).
    3. joints feel sturdy to me.

    hope this helps.

    Back cannons.. check.
    Poseability.. check.
    Awesomeness... double effin check. Lol

    Thanks for the pix, daim! These images put the little worries I had about the back cannons. Really pumped to get this set complete.

    I hope some sort of gift set becomes available of these guys somewhere down the line that addresses the major QC issues with each figure. I'd like to get a second set to display in alt-mode next to the combined mode.

    I freaking LOVE that AA gun emplacement. I kinda doubt that I'll be displaying these guys combined and that looks to be a very viable option for the combiner kibble.

    Oh and the back mounted cannons for FA :bay

    Man all these pictures of Fierce make me anxious for him. Won't be able to pick him up until the middle of May. The wait is gonna suck but it'll be worth the wait.

    I would also like to know what changed. Maybe they added a connector piece at the last minute or maybe he printed one himself? Either way I guess we will know soon enough and it's great to see those pics!

    But I'm confused as to how he got the cannons to pivot forward, as I dont see a joint.

    Oh man, that looks soooo good.

    How are those attached though?! UGH, it's driving me crazy! The guns are now turned sideways from the way they were before, and they now have nothing to do with that hole. Which means they're tabbed into that green piece? I don't even know any more.

    Warbotron: Why send out production samples to video reviewers, when you can just sell the thing no questions asked.

    I'm scratching my head about the bent over the shoulder turrets too. Looking at his side the handles appear to be straight down his back/pegged in. However it'd done it looks damn good.

    We'll find out in the next fortnight for sho.

    ActionRobo has it in their brick and mortar store in HK, should be available on their website at some point. Chimungmung is expecting their shipment in the next 24 to 48 hours, pending customs unfortunately. Why did customs have to interfere with this release!!!!?!?!?!?!? Still shipping to other places because they are a bit further from China then Hong Kong does.

    I don't see a problem with the colors...they were always colored differently...i think Warbo got the general colors right. Last pics just because...

    Yeah they look pretty much spot on for the most part. Just Vortex's chest throwing things off and even that is fixable with a bit of work.

    Those pics have pretty much convinced me to paint Air Burst's chest black too.

    Alright, so we know that FA is just waiting to clear customs!

    What about x-ray?

    x-ray is most likely right next to FA at customs. Same shipment, same company, same boat, same guy at customs going "WTF are these?"
