    Guess it's a good sign they still intend to release Neptune that he's advertised on the box.

    Love that shelf. Makes me sad I bailed on a similar run a few years back.

    This makes me al the more pissed off Skids wasn't done all in the beautiful metallic blue, but no, they went with two tone for cartoon accuracies sake. Hoping they'll do a toy deco all in blue and with the alternate head.

    Hark the herald angels sing.
    My Taobao package cleared customs yesterday. I should have Herald in 2 or 3 business days.

    God, he's looking really good. The multiple shades of grey work for me a lot more than Skids' multiple blues.

    For anyone who has both Skids and Crosscut, any noticeable QC or plastic tolerance differences?

    While I don't own Skids, I've watched multiple reviews of him and it seems like he has some more looseness issues. Crosscut on the other hand is tight all around, the ab crunch has gotten looser than I'd like after all the abuse hes gotten the past week, but its not floppy. I also loosened the forearm swivel because it was tighter than the transformation assembly that wraps around the wheel for the shoulders. before it would pop off when i wanted to turn the forearms, now that is a tad looser its nice and smooth.
    the transformation is a tad wonky. you basically have to do each leg twice with it works, just to get the wheel into the inside of the leg. the front, mainly the arms can be a bit messy because you don't really have a proper spot to pull on the shoulder sliders, what I usually do is rotate one of them so I can get a finger down there and pull them up individually. the most frustrating part is going back to alt mode, not because of any tolerance issues or panels, but because of the knee ratchets. you have 2 sets of knee ratchets, and its entirely unclear how many clicks and which clicks you need to use to get everything to line up in alt mode. eventually you figure out that sweet spot, but I would have liked it better if there was some tell, or if you just needed to go all the way with one/both of them to give you a clue.
    the paint is gorgeous tho. and with the exception of the feet its all very sturdy and it just pops so well. I actually really like the light grey for the arms and such, it helps highlight whats a vehicle piece on him and whats just a robot. its like the silver car parts are his armor, and the light grey is his barer skin for lack of a better term.
    he is also loaded with Diecast. he weighs twice as much as MP Sideswipe. its well worth the 90 bucks in my opinion.
