Wing tip pivots flipped around to achieve the configuration shown in the video review...
That's good, glad I'm getting mine from ShowZ.
Just transformed mine and it was not easy, thankfully there's a youtube vid up which shows transformation from alt to bot and back again. Hopefully it'll be easier next time I do it cos damn, my hands hurt after that. Quite a few close tolerances and parts that have to be squeezed past or over others.
But I like it, nothing felt like it was gonna break and the tabs feel sturdy, the transformation is not for everybody though.
It looks awesome! I hope ShowZ can get the repaired batch and ship the order out soon!
If nothing break I'm buying it. I'm just so cautious of 3rd party figures now as so far I've had parts brake on
Unique Toys Challenger, Transcraft Bumblebee, Freedom Leader, and Honey Badger MPM Megatron
Apparently, the MA one is even harder to transform, at least according to the reviews. But this doesn't look any easier.
Also very relatable.
Not to be an asshole, but......
I think it might be user error....
I'll admit Challenger was but the rest absolutely weren't user error, they just had pieces break on them.
Just got my shipping notice, it should be here in a day or two. Will keep you guys posted once it gets here. Then I'll share my thoughts on the figure.
Went ahead and ordered this figure from ShowZ.
A new review. His copy looks better.
In stock at Toy Dojo.
He arrived late today, so I only had time to unbox and pose. I’ll get batteries installed tonight and probably have more photos and get to know this figure a little better over the weekend.
First impressions are interesting. There’s definitely a problem with the wings attachment point to the body. Instructions are a joke. Mine came neatly packed in one box, but the face and wings were bubble packed under the blister. I knew he would come faceless but I was not prepared for what looked like another of Murder Prime’s victims. Overall, I love the tightness of the joints, the face sculpt and the paint quality.
Out of the box, had to introduce him to my TC-02, though.
It’s worth noting that his entire leg, pelvis, and arm assembly can support TC-02 here beyond his center of gravity without drooping.
For those that have both; Which one to get?
Now that's nice
Yes, if you can wait for a revised version, wait. After doing a little work, the wings still droop or just fall out if I look at it funny. I don’t mind doing a little work because I was planning on it anyway, but I know that’s not everyone’s bag. Still a fantastic looking figure though.
Do you mean the shoulder wings or the back wings droop? Or both? Cool pics BTW!
Haha DAMN that sucks.
I'm holding out hope on showz, hopefully should come with fixed wings.
