    He’s a great seller. If that other one ever shows I’ll definitely contact him and arrange to ship it back. It’s the right thing to do. It’s just weird that still to this day the status showing is still in transit from China. Hehe. It happens.

    Anybody got an extra Blitzkrieg they're willing to sell on the low? I want one for both robot mode and for a new Bruticus right foot (mine's ratcheted the wrong way... it has the left foot tilt)

    Fair play on the honest stance. But I reckon shipping it back will cost an absolute fortune; the box is huge!

    I would leave that up to him. If he does not want it back then I would sell it. I don’t need two.

    YAY!!!!! It finally updated and has made it to Dallas. I’ll have it by this weekend since I’m just down the road in SA! Stoked!!

    Seriously? The moment you get a replacement ready to go it hits your local area? That's freaky...

    I posted in the XTB Aegis thread that I need to learn to delay posting anything about delivery for at least 24hrs because inevitably as soon as I do it suddenly appears. Happened a couple of times to me, including with Aegis but only within normal delivery time windows. Your version of this phenomenon is a whole new level of weird!

    LOFL! Well Showz was not quite at that point yet. He stated if at the 45th day (next Monday) it was a no show he would replace it. And lo and behold, the status changed to leaving Dallas. So cool. It's been a bit of a wait, but I am glad it is en route.:D :rolleyes:

    I just picked up my Bruticon from the post office today. Guess that's what I'll be playing around with tomorrow with the football games in the background.

    Wonder how many hours its going to take to get around to getting them into combined mode?

    Just got Bruticon; I think he’s terrific. Really happy overall.

    I want to mess around with Brawl and see if I can make him a little more together in leg mode. I’d like to remove him from the combiner form, but for the life of me I can’t figure out how. Is there an official or preferred way to remove a leg limb from this bad boy? I just don’t want to break anything!

    For Brawl you have to separate the arms from both sides of the torso and slide the torso to the side that gives on the spring loaded hooks. It's been a while so I don't know if it gives to the left or right, just take your time.

    Took me pretty much the entire Seahawks game to get Bruticon together. Looks decent on the big boys shelf.

    Maybe I was too excited and had set too high an expectation, but am a bit dissapointed. It's not as sturdy as I thought it was going to be. Could just be with my copy... balance is very fiddly (even with adjusting the hips forwards or back. Joints are decent, but Swindle feels like he's going to untab all the time.

    I thought I was going to be able to get better poses out of him, but have given up for today. Still have to put a Decepticon symbol on him at some point, so will try posing again when that happens.

    Holy shit, dude
    I just bought a second Blitzkrieg to be my robot mode Onslaught (didn't like MMC's super long torso, weird legs, and generally toyline aesthetics), so I will swap out the foot and try to reorient the ratchet on the disassembled one in my spare time. I'll let you know how it turns out.

    I don't know if this has been asked before but which shockwave figure looks best for Zeta's bruticus to hold in his hand ?

    KO Bridgwatcher is about the right scale. But the tab on the legs, which becomes the handle, gets in the way of holding it. It's a balancing act and could benefit from behind shaved off. I haven't done it though

    Low quality photo as it's zoomed in. But hopefully you get the idea

    Is that the Pocket Toys 1:1 KO or the Mech Fans Toys OS KO?

    Mech Fans Toys OS KO. If it was the original, it might fit better in the hands but would probably look too small. Bots and Bits did a video of these two Shockwaves and had them in a Zeta arm with the fist. Towards the end of the videos I think. If you can find that vid, you can see the scale of the original

    Cheers, I'll try to source that video.

    I genuinely put MP29+ weapon (of itself) in his hand for shits and giggles, and it's one of those times that you get the idea but it doesn't quite make sense (it's so tiny).

    Been debating whether to look at what's out there that'd cover that particular itch, so this points me in the right direction
