    I couldn’t resist and I ordered one.
    I’m going to try to paint the white joints behind the chest window black.

    I love my V2 Aegis! He’s also my first so there’s that lol. The only thing I find off putting are those white shoulders but honestly, I don’t even think about it half the time.

    Would love to see some pics and a date for a cartoon accurate Hoist. I can't even seem to even find anything saying Paean was announced for a V2.

    Is there a way to get the back of Trailbreaker's truck around the red sections that won't damage the paint?

    After watching lots of reviews I'm gonna say the answer is no. One of those hinges in his lower leg should have been a sliding bar.

    Dear Primus......

    No wonder Badcube went out of business (maybe lol). Their Hoist and Trailbreaker were so bad.

    Bring on “toon”/v2 Paean.

    Sheeeesh I can’t wait to place my Badcube Hoist in box somewhere and never think about it ever again.

    I have Aegis on display but Speedbump has a better torso and face sculpt. BC just cannot figure out legs. I prefer Lorrys look to Paen as well except for the legs.

    Speaking of Paean+, I don't think he was listed on that release schedule that was leaked a while back. Coupled with the delays that will happen as a result of the virus I'm guessing it could be towards the end of the year before we see him if the rest of that list is intended to come first?

    Everything about that list was very....optmistic to begin with, lol. Given all the backlog this will have caused for factories, I'd say it's anyone's guess how things will shake out.

    Something like Paen+ could even come out sooner, since it'll be easier to make than going through all back-and-forth for a new figure. Just so they can get at least get something out, while the factory is no doubt juggling their other customers.

    Which paint did you use? I was only able to get the left hand from xtb so I'm waiting for the cartoon version of paean to get that corrected hand...

    Is there any confirmation that there will be a Paean V2?
