    Agree. It's a mediocre product at best. Maybe combined mode will be the positive outcome for this set. Otherwise, I stand by this:

    Opened up Fuzz today. Hips and shoulders are a floppy mess. Probably run through my supply of Future to get this guy to hold a pose. Was really excited when they first showed him but now I'm not sure if I'll keep going on this set.

    Tough to capture floppiness in photos but here he is. Hips are loose going back, ok going forward. Shoulders are awful. 0C19067B-0EBE-4AC3-89BD-BF4BE94298AB.jpeg 0B6F5DDC-FADB-4029-8490-C2204EC63E19.jpeg

    I agree he can be floppy but I’ve seen others mention it, I haven’t seen a single sintance of shoulders snapping. And I have to say that is somewhat shocking. I agree about the paint and it being perhaps from one of Keith’s lesser factories. But he does pose pretty incredibly. I have him for the eventual combined anyway. He is ok. I’m not super disappointed but I think after the stunticons I dropped my hopes pretty substantially

    Today Netclow gave me a very bad news....
    He will stop to ship items to the European union, due to the new custom rules, toys without CE certification cannot be shipped to the European union. So where I can keep buying the next protectobots?

    I think he was looking for a followup on any news of a set of Toy Accurate/Youth Protectobots.

    Eh, Kapow nowadays barely carry third party other than MMC, IF, Fans Hobby and maybe Planet X. Wondering if their winding down their third party sales. For UK your down to Omegalock and Chinese sellers. Showz are a solid choice, TF Safari, baba and robotoybase are all decent enough also. You can try US sellers if you like but prepare to get fucked on customs harder than a cheap hooker. Also don't even bother looking at TF Source, their shipping rates are batshit insane.

    Edit: just noticed you said Europe. I believe there's a few localised sellers in France, Germany and Netherlands iirc, don't have links to hand but I've seen a few places before. Iacon.store is a French one iirc, don't know the others off the top of my head.

    Was gonna say something about XTB winning the Defensor war/race, but remembered they're really still just one in.
