    Can’t believe how awesome this guy is, unfinished business for sure. The collar is a little funky but if that’s the corner they had to cut I’m fine with it.

    You know you can pull the collar section off right? It just unclips from the torso.

    man, what a great /beast/ figure!
    transformed it first time to planet mode - it was hard!
    transformed back w/o removing wings and spikes and it was w/o any problems!
    I'm so happy with it!
    the hardest was to detach legs from upper body

    Yeah, I filed those clips down a bit, because there's no reason for them to be so ridiculously tight that I feel like I'm ripping the figure in half when I unpeg the legs.

    Just a heads up, after I unclipped the collar once it became quite loose and ended up poping half way out during transformation. Ended up snapping the plate the peg it on, so it had to be glued in place. Just something to watch out for.

    The best customer service is when a company charges you and then tells you about it days later.

    I have to check the cartoon again.
    Does he really have his wings on his shoulder and not his back?

    One QC issue has come up. The claw on about 4 of the tower pegs is too wide to connect. Might try to shave it down with an exacto knife.

    You might want to double check the tower placement. If it is the towers on the shoulders then you could be using the wrong towers. I had a similar issue and almost cut it down too. Just on a whim I checked the help videos at the beginning of this thread and saw that I was trying to fit the inner arm towers onto his shoulders.

    Mine was paid in full on 30th June but I’ve not had a dispatch email yet.
    I think that was within 24 hours of TFS announcing the preorder on Facebook.
