    Apparently this is coming in January?

    Only a year after we were told it was imminent and told to pay full price :rolleyes:

    It has better articulation too. I especially like that spring loaded panel on the calf to hide the second knee joint.

    Yeah... That was a concern of mine when the grey mold was revealed, hopefully the spring ends will be blunted or something.

    Noticed that too. Looking at it, it seems like it could be something that keeps those guns at the end of the wing for helicopter mode yellow.

    I'd have to assume it's generally like 80/20 in favor of people who would choose bot mode accuracy over alt mode, so hopefully it is fixed for the release.

    Looks like the shoulder part is two pieces, just paint the back piece green, that would be good enough for me. that way they don't need to mess with anything at the factory just change the paint color.

    Looking at all the good looking Springers out there we've been provided a color chart showing exactly which color comes from where based off the Sunbow model sheets. But you're probably the first one to point out that Springer normally has the yellow only on the front of his shoulders and the sides and back of the shoulders are green. Good catch that Virtus seems to have the yellow going all the way around. Kind of like what I've sketched below?

    The little thruster thing is also green, but it's colored yellow on Virtus.

    Yeah I think I’m on the “let’s get this out the door” boat, it’s been half a decade!

    The wound will heal, but will just be missing an arm.

    Time will heal even that if your clock is analogue ...

    ... because it has a second hand.
