    Cool. How's the stability?

    In response to XTB “deluding itself” into thinking it’s on par with the other two. I just got the cartoon Aegis and the materials and quality feel completely on par with Fanstoys and Takara, maybe even more sturdy. I think you don’t give them enough credit.

    Looks great without the accessories pack.

    Looks great, except that face just doesn't do it for me. Feels really bad paying $75 for a freaking face plate. I dunno. Maybe someone will make some like they are doing for DX9 Attila.

    Disagree, I sold my Aegis 2.0 super quick. Given how tight the transformation is (parts rubbing together), it's pretty much guaranteed that paint will come off in the future.

    I have XTB's Kup, Hoist, Cosmos, Wheelie, Beachcomber, Windcharger, Scourge, Seaspray, and all five Stunticons. I also have a ton of stuff from KFC, MMC, DX9, Fans Hobby, Takara, Unique Toys, BadCube, ToyWorld, Zeta, Maketoys, etc. I'm not saying that XTB doesn't make good stuff. I'm not saying that everything Fans Toys makes is great, either (and yeah, most FT stuff is overpriced). But I am saying that Fans Toys' best is better than XTB's best.

    But more than that, I think it's less about quality and more about fandom. Takara will always get sales from the official-only crowd. And Fans Toys is like Apple, they have a core of fans who will pay whatever just because of the brand. I don't think XTB has either of those things. They're still trying to shake a rep for shoddy QC that I don't think they've truly deserved for two or three years now.

    Very stable in its A stance. Haven’t tried any dynamic poses yet.

    Thanks about extending the feet! It’s even more stable now. I was following Bens transformation/review and looks like he forgot to extend the feet also for anyone using that video.

    Yes yes I have all of those figures and more too. I disagree but to each their own.

    I will agree that XTB probably doesn’t have the following the other two have for sure, and that the QC complaints and legacy for XTB seems out of whack with the product they produce and the QC issues with the more favoured companies.

    Trust me I’m also not a hater of other companies either, probably have about as many Fans Toys figures as Takara and at least on par or just slightly less than XTB. I’m actually a really big fan of Unique Toys/DX9 and I was sad they folded. Hell I’ve decided to pick up Buzzing just because I love their take and QC on their figures. I also just got MMC Girder and he’s an awesome figure too. Really I’m not a brand snob at all when it comes to 3P!

    By extending the feet, I'm guessing you mean extend the heel spurs?

    No It’s the panels that extend out on the side of both feet, to give that classic G1 Menasor looking feet.

    Looks great I cant wait to get the trailer. Also can Drag strips lego brick be retracted into the drivers seat? It kinda looks odd when it sticks out like that.

    I will be interested to see if he hold poses especially with no forward or back hip ractchets or a knee ratchet

    Haha, I do have him... on my mind. For some reason he's come up a lot today.

    I think I meant to type Skids, which I think is actually my favorite XTB piece. I regret sleeping on the police deco.

    Don't the feet open up wider than you have them in the picture?

    Looks pretty good. Personally I'm holding back on thanking XTB due to the wait time plus the price.

    I think you quoted the wrong guy. RIBFIR is the one with that picture.

    I did, but I was too lazy to fix it. I figured RIBFIR would read it.
