The figure is really nice in hand.
The lightbar is stored in the trunk/hatch which is clever.
Mine is arriving tomorrow. So what's the consensus on this guy so far? Good figure?
Personal opinion. Passable figure. Some parts (side mirrors, head sculpt, and abcrunch) could be better.
-Side mirrors are too soft for comfort. Feels like they're gonna break real soon
- Head a bit on the thin side, but probably designed to fit in tiny vehicle mode
- Ab crunch is too loose to be useful.
- Would've been better if the upper arms locked into the center of the wheels instead of tiny tabs above it.
Overall transformation is somewhat similar to MP Prowl, but with the diecast he feels great in hand.
That’s a shame he’s looser in the crunch. I loved how tight Savant’s was.
In-hand pics in bot mode?
Darn, sounds like a so so figure. Thanks though.
I triple checked and Atari could drive Autotrooper. Same with Marissa and Convoy. So yeah.
Got mine a couple weeks ago when TFSource got them in.
The mirrors tore off almost instantly and getting it back into vehicle mode was rather annoying; the feet and legs didnt want to fold up into the back of the car so that the front could tab to the back.
There's a gap on one side on the front fender, I can pop it into place buuuut then the whole thing busts open. lol.
And the tabs on the back seem to be stressing?
I still love him though... Had to contact TFSource to get the figurines and they asked me to send a photo of the "defect"..?
Damn that sounds terrible. Sorry to hear.
Yeaaaah, it kinda sucks but, I'm not too beat up about it. I honestly got it FOR the car cause it's just ridiculous to me.
Well yeah the car is cool, but I still can’t excuse that.
Does anyone have a confirmation on the height of the little figures?
Do they have any articulation?
They’re just statues unfortunately.
Someone has these little figures in hand. Please just get me a measurement in cm real quick. That would be awesome.
I have had them say the same thing in a similar situation. Just send them a photo with what you have and say, "See, the little box with the figures in it was missing." Silly, I know right? But I can confirm they said the same thing to me once.
They are about 8 cm tall and about 4cm wide. Annoyingly my Miyuki has an ugly smear of black paint on her nose.
Edit: I realize my photos make the ladies look taller than 8 cm, but that's the angle of the photo. They are right under 8 cm looking head on.
I gave it a day, didn't send anything and got a message from "Rob"; he said that they had multiple people contact them about the figurines, and had to contact XTB about getting more. I guess they didn't get enough for all the Taihos they got.
Anyone actually transforming this guy? Still no bot mode pics?
There have been some already.

Your assessment is really spot on. It's not a bad figure, but there's a couple of things they could have done to make it better.
