    Got to sit down and transform Gravestone tonight and he is all I wanted and expected.

    The only minor nitpick I have is that the 'shouting face' has a scar under the left eye which is disappointing but we shall wait to see what additional faces the trailer brings us. Failing that, I may just email XTB for another one if it starts to really bother me.

    So I’ve had my Gravestone for a day now (thanks for the pretty fast shipping Show.Z!) and I have to say that I’m very “meh” about it. Something about it in-hand just doesn’t hit the right notes with me. I think it’s painted beautifully, sculpted very well, but something in the proportions (even with the arms shortened a bit) just strikes me as off. I’m keeping it, as I have all the other X-Transbots Stunticons and want a complete Menasor, but he’ll likely be relegated to combined mode. If I didn’t have another MotorMaster already, I think I’d be super happy with it...a bit of a letdown.

    Again, this isn’t to be interpreted as me thinking this figure is sub-par or anything — far from it! I think it’s one of the better figures X-Transbots has put out. Nothing feels brittle to me, feels like a quality piece, nice and heavy with die-cast. Just isn’t hitting all the buttons for me.

    It's always interesting to see a perspective that I don't agree with but I definitely understand why you don't necessarily like it. I feel the opposite way towards Gravestone, but I agree with your sentiments.

    And I also totally understand why everyone does. And truly happy that people are getting the MotorMaster they want and deserve.

    And I do like the figure. I’m just not “WOW’d” by it. I don’t love it. And I want to love all my purchases...I loved Flipout and Deathwish, paint chipping and all. And I still like Gravestone or else I’d sell it off.

    Don't consider it a scar, it's battle damage.

    For me in this case, buying Gravestone from ShowZ was was something I couldn't pass up. For the first couple of days after their preorder was available, they had it for $112 shipped which beats US sellers' $130 + shipping. I was able to pay the $3 deposit to lock in ShowZ's $112 price. After a few days ShowZ raised the price to $124 shipped stating/claiming that XTB told them that they wanted them to stop selling it that low.

    Got my Gravestone today, no big deal. Right away I was disappointed as he was in truck mode so I was like ......not doing this and put him back in the box. Ill take him out when his trailer comes out and I have to go through the transformation, but I really wish Xtransbots would put the needs of their customers first as opposed to the bottom line. They need to have an option for buying this guy in robot mode as opposed to alt mode so I can enjoy my robot without having to deal with the transformation.......

    I know. This guys crazy. I am very happy that it came in vehicle mode to save on shipping. Plus it's more secure with no bits potentially coming off. I wish more shipped like this and thought about consumer costs.

    Well I am unable to transform this guy on my own and my caregiver is away for the weekend. Not everyone has the intellectual quotient and the dexterity to perform a complex transformation such as this.......I can only transform G1 robots or similar. I really wish Xtransbots would take people like me into account when packaging these guys.

    My Gravestone was delivered today! Huzzah. How am I suppose to transform him without an EmGo video?!
