    I think unless you had professional equipment (and even then), you wouldn't get any better than you did. Especially considering he wasn't naturally lowering his voice in the first place. The fact that it's there is more than enough!

    I’m still waiting on Showzstore to ship mine even though it’s been in stock for a week. They’ve really been dragging their feet my last few orders.

    I can't afford this dude right now, or at least, I have other priorities, but I just keep watching transformation videos, I freaking love the way all the panels come together, the creativity in having no kibble, it's honestly astounding.

    Got my spikes from the group buy today! Look awesome. Can hardly wait another 37 days for my Studio Cell figure to actually arrive so I've got some place to put them. That slow boat from Show.Z seems really slow lately so I suppose I'll have to wait.

    That's what I'm hoping for. I got a Zeta Combiner from Show.Z last Thanksgiving and that showed up in about 4 weeks. I was afraid it would take the 80 or 90 days they warn about (and I did experience an 87 or 88 day delivery from e-Bay last summer). There just isn't any info while Unicron is on the boat so I'm not getting my hopes up when the postal carrier shows up each day.

    Got my Wing Tips from @JBrock this afternoon. These are really well made and well worth the price.

    They 100% improve and compliment the already impressive look of this figure.

    Thanks to @JBrock for organizing the group buy.

    I am curious to see if these tips will work with the larger rings too.

    Bollocks, I seem to have missed the UK boat with those wing spikes. That'll teach me for not paying attention.

    I've ordered the larger wings upgrade so we'll see. I imagine one could modify one or the other to make them work, but I'm not too concerned about it as the larger wings will be reserved for a future second Studio Cell to be displayed in Planet Mode.

    For anyone who's curious, the wing tips have more weight to them than you would think. I can't get over the craftsmanship of them. They are incredibly solid (and sharp at the pointy end- be careful). When I took them out of their box they were cold to the touch, based on that and their weight I mistook them for discast for a moment. The color is a really close match to the wings, though the difference shows up more on camera. To the naked eye it's hard to tell. Looking at some of the parts of Unicron that are painted orange, the wing tips are a near identical color match to that paint, except they have a gloss finish instead of matte.

    Well! Fancy you, Mr. "I'll take two Studio Cell Unicrons, with all extra add-ons please!" :p 

    But for realsies, let us know - I'm only in for one of these so the 4th party upgrades cross-compatibly is a factor of whether I get the larger rings or not.
