    It's another XTB roulette wheel and I continue playing.

    Just hoping I'm in the "Locke looks really good with no real problems" XTB crowd and not the "My Monolith has a bad knee cap, thigh and is missing his penis" XTB crowd.

    Wait there are some copies that aren't missing it? Better contact my retailer right now & ask for my penis!

    On a serious note i got my shipping notification from show.z overnight, so my turn @ the coin toss is coming up soon enough.

    Thanks for that, although perspective makes it hard to discern whether it's the same height as Hoodlum, or shorter. The official specs say it's the same or sightly taller, which works with Hoodlum, Jabber and Rouge. Would be interested in hearing your thoughts.

    Awesome, cheers buddy! That works really well for me. Glad the quoted height is correct, even if it has other issues.

    Is this that "thigh gap" all the kids used to talk about?

    You should be able to slide the thighs over. I did that to mine and they line up now. The right leg took more effort than the left on my copy.

    I've tried, I even disassembled it to see if something was stuck, but that is the max it will go over. I sent XTB an email, maybe they will send me a new part

    As far as I can tell mainly the knees do. I’m probably going to lubricate them before trying I move them based on the one picture I saw where the teeth stripped. To an extent the hips like I stated. The universal joints have a slight ratchet/detent to them.

    Ah ok. Sorry to hear. I’m sure they will. Whenever I had an issue they were extremely helpful.

    Got mine late yesterday and changed the helmet. Definitely looks superior to Koot and looks great. However, feels like sh1t. Definitely going to wait and take my time to transform it. It reminds me of Maketoys Endgame with a feeling of tightness with weak plastic in parts with loose opening areas. Hardware and plastic are damn important with these and not the place to cut corners. Probably will need some modding to get right. Just hoping I don't wind up unhappy after transformation. Someone used the Susanoo/Bludgeon example which might be a decent correlation of what I am expecting. Loved everything about the look and aim of the figure but the materials were sh1t. Virtus better not feel like this or the Monolith trailer when I get it from TCP.

    Virtus has been branded Premium. And it has nano painting.

    Not going to be a problem ;)

    Daggumit. I knew there was a final member missing from the team. I’m emailing Ms Zou at Xtb right away.
