hope u can make it out w my horrible phone camera but atleast its not a super important piece
Got my DaVinci/Grapple.
Didn't have time to transform it yet, only noticed that he's big, heavy and sturdy in truck mode.
What really pisses me off is the different shade of yellow, due to the fact that the plastic is not painted while the metal and transparent parts are. The result is that it is somehow orange with yellow bits - the truck cab, the side panels over the rear wheels and some other parts here and there.
The crane has some kind of grease in the inner parts, is it only mine?
The chinstrap on Artfire looks awesome!
Well, ShowZ has dispatched my Tirado so fingers crossed I don't have any grief with this lad too eh?
Still not heard back from Omegalock about my broken Caravaggio. :S
For anyone who has the mold. Do you think it'd be easy to just unscrew the white armature and parts-form the head/crane section when transforming?
Looking at my copy, it looks like the armatures can be unscrewed at both ends and removed. I am unsure if that will lead to the head not mounting properly in bot mode. Haven't transformed mine yet. Still admiring vehicle mode.
No, its not just yours....X-Trans lubed the ratchets i the boom.
Just ordered Infero and Grapple from TCP. I thought I'd be satisfied with MMC versions, but X-Trans are just to good not to get...especially for the price.
I talked to The Chosen Prime earlier...inquiring on the time frame of them recieving their shipment of X-Trans Tirador/Artfire. They are expecting him to arrive in approximately 30 days.
got all mine and only a single one of the cab horns missing on artfire and strangly enough inferno was missing a wheel which was in grapples packaging so very strange.
Look in the cab on artfire, mine was floating around in there, and fell out during the transformation process.
alas no such luck haha not even in the packaging honestly though its such a minor thing can probably just replace it with something or leave it as is. Granted ill take a tiny missing horn over a missing wheel!
I know these bots are just releasing but has there been any breakage issues or things to look out for? I just saw these guys and decided to get Dante and Da Vinci. They look really nice. Usually just go for combiners but I’m really liking these.
There’s been some problems, I’d check out the last 10 pages or so.
On top of the post above mine, a common issue is the right hand thumb has improper tolerance and pops off with the slightly touch, and mine also had these 3 little pieces not glued to the first boom segment.
Thanks for the heads up both of you. Will do some reading. Still gonna get them, just want to know what to be careful with.
I can't find an closeup pics of the seats in the cab/chest.
On my Artfire, it's all been assembled with them tipped back, under the shoulder hinges. I think I have to disassemble to tip them forward.
Anyone else got that?
No time for pics now, hopefully tonight.
Mine is exactly the same.
Plus the "things" on top of his shoulders are different colours on each arm, the left one is silver, and the right one is white. That's strange.
I am directly talking to XTB to tell them about the problem with the screw and to send spare parts with a new screw... if they send a new part with that screw, it breaks again.
Keep us informed of the situation please!
