    I went straight to getting them all into combined mode, so I can't speak on the individual bots much, save there appearance, which I think is pretty good over all.

    You’re talking about the panel the head goes on right? If that’s the case the blue panel underneath that one has two side flaps. They come folded under the panel but you have to flip them around so they’re on top. I had a bit of a time with that too lol.

    That's the one. I've got those flipped up correctly, but there's a clearance issue where that panel's middle opening doesn't reach the tab on Blitzkrieg. I got it to work by tabbing that in first, then working backwards from there, but I'm worried about how sturdy it'll be b/c the side panels don't peg in and those top 4 tabs unpeg if I try to correct any of the other's that don't tab. Fun times :D

    Only other thing I can think of is the front of the chest might not be pegged in enough. I had to squeeze the chest to blitzkrieg pretty firmly. Almost thought I was going to break something. I didn’t have any issue with the sides of blitzkrieg tabbing in.

    Fingers crossed.

    Arrived earlier. Opened the box and checked contents everything appears to be there.

    Looks, feels and is packaged like a high end product. Similar inside the box insert wise to Generation Toy's Op Ex.

    Impressed so far. Tomorrow when I have more time/energy I'll look into putting the gang together.

    Sounds great, waiting for mines to arrive but from the feeback so far sounds like the quality is top notch like there metallic superion. This is for sure there definitive toon version, but I wouldn’t be surprised repaints will happen in the future.

    I pre-ordered mine at TCP. The other day it said it was in stock on the website, so I paid. Now it's not in stock on the website but it's been a week and it is still in "processing". Weird cuz TCP usually ships things out fast. I wonder if it was a glitch...

    Shouldn't you be asking your reseller?

    When i Phoned Kapow for information it was an automated call saying that they where understaffed or something due to covid... I was just wondering how long the gap usually is from American retailers receiving items to Uk Retailers receiving them

    That'll depend on which distributor the reseller went through. It's best to just send your reseller a message or in this case, you should be able to reach Kapow via email or on social media.

    Yeah, you can even select the item from your orders and ask questions, if I recall correctly. But they're posting on FB so they're online for sure.

    I'd point out that they're super busy right now having done that TFN event last weekend. Loads of products to ship out.
