I just received Paean and Aegis last night, and I'm ecstatic. These are the most well made products by XTB to date. I agree with some that the stripes are not done very well, but I'm not to entirely concerned with that given Aegis will spend most of his time in bot mode. The transformation on each of them was done extremely well, and the tolerances were damn near perfect. I've had my fair share of issues with both KFC and XTB products in the past, but these are a home run. Their joints are great, the paint is great (aside from the stripes), the plastic feels better than any of their releases (even the junkions), and the accessories are well thought out and useful. If anyone is considering getting these I'd highly suggest it. I'm not sure what could be done to make a better Hoist or Trailbreaker. You guys should hit up Manolo or as he's known on the boards @enp27. He has a fantastic price for these, especially if you order both. He also ships really fast and his communication is amazing. I've been ordering from him for over a year now maybe two.
