Got mine in today!
1. Glad I got white weapons
2. He's gorgeous!
Just found that my Aegis wrists were put on the wrong arms. The mushroom peg for the hand or gun is off centre. If you have the gun attached, when folded in it won't line up with the cut out.
I just swapped the left and right and now it is all good.
You can see in the pics how it doesn't line up when closed.
I got the VLE version. Not sure how I feel about that yet. I started with BC Speedbump. Went with V1 Aegis because of the BC leg disaster. Wasn't happy with the lack of quality of Aegis so I went and got another Speedbump. Now I can finally say I'm 95% happy with my MP Trailbreaker. The quality is on a different level than the first version. My biggest grip is the choice for white shoulder pieces and their visibility through the blue windshield. Nothing Cell shaded toyhaxx cant fix. Well done XTB.
Are the shoulder pieces not silver with the silver accessories version?
Still waiting on good pics of the silver accessories on the figure as that's my preferred version.
For those that have either version - is it possible to switch out the blue windows from one with the dark windows from the other? Or is the body paint directly on the clear plastic in some areas?
Thank you. I've been on a toon and comic kick lately, and prefer Hoist with white paint apps and a lighter blue visor. As for Hauler, I couldn't wait any longer for Takara to make one.
I love your Hauler. The alternate head worked out great.
My toon Aegis just arrived from baba, and the alt mode is gorgeous, i can't transform him right now but i tried opening the back door like the first instruction step just to fiddle with it a bit and couldn't manage to, so looks like i'm in for a fun time . Mine had white accessories for those curious
Might pick up a ko Grapple and so the same. Awesome job bud.
Mine arrived yesterday. No issues that I can see. Transformation was a pain - everything was locked together so damned tight. I actually let out a Bobby Skullface "Goooodnight!" at one point. Sadly mine wasn't one of the "lucky draw" with the silver accessories.
Pic showing the shoulder joint extension mechanism (narrow white cylinder just barely showing from within the thicker white cylinder) in case anybody wants to see it. With it fully extended, his shoulders just barely clear the backpack.
And a shot with him wearing one of Ironhide's hands. Doesn't fit at all - his wrist peg is much smaller - and the color difference is awful so I wouldn't recommend it. Just wanted to see if it was viable since I prefer articulated hands.
All in all a decent figure and one more checkbox in my S1 Autobot shelf. Only four more to go.
So you got a VLE edition but your shoulder and weapon accessories were white? I was started to assume VLE was silver and standard box without that sticker was white. Guess not?
Does it have the VLE sticker on the box?
Not that i noticed, no
Thanks. As you didn't have the sticker, I'm assuming that's why your weapons parts are white. Any box with VLE probably includes silver accessories then
This was all too confusing an idea.
All I want is the V1 colors with the V2 improvements.
I was watching some old episodes recently. Trailbreaker is definitely grey, not practically white.
Wonder how soon the Paean rerelease will hit.
I've just watched Bobby Skullface's review from 2017. At the end he said something along: "I'll wait for FT and the rumored TT version"
Well 2 years later, and we've gotten nothing
Too funny seriously.
My guess is before next year. This seemed like a fairly sudden release and I don’t think they’re gonna wait long for him.
Yeah it was really quick, and BBTS has a preorder listed for this month.
