    So it's a good thing that I was waiting for my paycheck before ordering a copy... the wait continues...

    Mine came in. ShowZ shipped the 8th arrived the 13th. The thigh swivel is sort of concerningly tight. It flexes the hip connector and I'm worried that connector might just snap off one day...anyone else feel like they have this issue?

    I tried sneaking some ahock oil to loosen it but I don't think it's making contact with the joint.

    This is the section I'm talking about. The thigh rotation swivel (yellow circle) is tight and really flexes the plastic joint (red circle). It feels like a flexible plastic friction swivel that makes me worried that over time the red circle will snap one day if you're not holding the upper thigh to rotate it.

    He's incredible looking. Can't believe this thread is only 14 pages.

    Might worth disassembling to see what's causing it, mine's reasonably tight but not until it stresses that other joint. Or see if shock oil works.

    Just got him, looks amazing! Some of the last pics before release had me thinkin he'd be painted mostly but guess not. He also has a bit more of that model kit jiggly/flexy feel than I was expecting but no biggie, just something to get used to. I've had all of 10 min to mess with him before leaving so play time has to wait but all looks good out of the box with the figure and accessories, but the clam however is cracked half way around the figure, glad nothing broke. He's a big boy! Wonderful Trans needs to even the playing field

    Dynamic poses hold so well. Just wish his legs could kick higher than 80 degrees for nice kneeling poses.

    Just got this guy yesterday. Here's some size comparisons with other Primes. I haven't transformed him yet nor fully messed around with his articulation and all. But overall, he looks good!

    Yeah... I was really, really, really looking forward to Transform and Roll Out's Cybertron Optimus and that thing's QC turned out to be a tragic catastrophe despite the company already having made a good figure. So now I try to wait for decent reviews regarding 3P figures.

    I think I missed out on a slightly better preorder price on Sky Atlas though. I think it was $130 before but went up to $145 when it came into stock. :/

    Great shots bro, this such a cool and beautiful way to show scale. I know this takes more work to do, but I appreciate this.
