    For all those people who shipped (showz)...did you all have standard shipping?

    Just curious cause i had paid for the express shipping and still havent gotten a notice yet. I see they have it listed as 'in stock' so i have to assume they got enough in to fill all pre orders.

    Didn’t pay extra for shipping and paid off the balance on the 9th. I don’t know if it makes a difference but I put my deposit in March when it was $256.99

    K i was april 6th, but had a price locked in at 243, but did upgrade to express shipping. I figure they sent out the big load of all the standard boat shipping.

    Haven't got the notification yet, paid for the additional shipping after I'd ordered, hope that means I still get included in the first run

    I'm curious, for those that have him: has anyone tried swapping out the shoulder panels for planet mode? Is it difficult, and does it involve removing pins?

    GLORIOUUUUUS.

    Oof. I didn’t get a notice.

    Gonna be a painful wait if I didn’t make it into the first batch.

    Who else got notice?

    Very early to say but he feels good and looks very impressive. Head sculpt is very good in person (imo).

    Height is 45.5cm to top of head and 48cm to top of head spikes.

    There are a few stress marks around pinned joints in the legs, but the plastic feels v slightly soft so should be ok and removeable. Im struggling to think of a match for the plastic (i dont own any zeta combiners), but maybe thighs and arms and back plates on TE01.

    Leg joints are very stiff ratchets (might loosen a bit), the arm ratchets feel perfect.

    Sadly it does appear to require pin removal

    Baba update... he’s paid up on the figures, just waiting for the actual physical delivery, so he knows with packing and shipping what the final cost will be, then he’ll know if any extra shipping is due. He doesn’t think many will be charged too much extra for shipping, but it’s impossible to know since China Post changes its rates and rules daily depending on destination and their own workloads.

    As I said earlier, he hopes to get them them this week.

    Couple of people have posted about incorrect pieces - there are a couple of pics showing what to look for in the last few pages.
    Thanks @boomerdave and @Ryuu for the heads up.

    You missed the point, everyone saying theirs shipped was all non-express.

    Man that is pretty. I had a little side hustle going and thought I could get this after all. But that ended. Gah! Trying to push/sell other stuff on eBay and FB groups still hoping I can swing it somehow.
