    I'm not gonna start with MP combiners. But an MP of Air Raid, one of my childhood toys for 70 euro is something I might consider.

    Thanks! So not before the new year, but pretty soon. Awesome.
    (Also, it'd be really awesome if you could please add New Zealand Dollars to your site - it's a long shot but I thought I'd ask anyway).
    Is Tony running a "buy the cheap one, get the more expensive one free" deal? ;) 
    In all seriousness, I'm glad more retailers are finally getting these in. I absolutely cannot wait to get mine.

    Went ahead and ordered my Air Strike from bababobo. I'm a huge fan of Warbo/GT/TFM (I have their Devy, Mena and Bruti) and they won't be standing together but... I am a huge fan of Superion ever since I had the G1 toy way back in 1987 or so, and I couldn't resist it. It's like an upgrade to my childhood memories. The plane alone is like a G1 toy on steroids. I'm in.

    Man, if they could just offer cartoon faces i'd probably be in at this price point.

    I put alot of work into painting my TW Devy to make it more cartoon-like, not sure if i'm willing to do that again for Zeta. But FT, which seems more tooney, is likely going to be more expensive, so that is the tradeoff for now.

    Air Strike arrived today. And he...is...AWESOME. The armatures for the backpack in bot mode are a bit wiggly, but otherwise great overall.

    Work with them some more. They actually lock in very tight on the backpack. The top armature has a tab and slot that secure them tightly. The front section of the plane will also lock tightly onto the thruster section if you use the "L" shaped tabs.

    Can someone answer a question for me. Might be silly but will this scale with UT Ragnaros? I'm invested in UT and need an autobot combiner to go next to it.

    Sure did...thanks for the pointers. I was on the fence about this set, considering I was waiting to see the FT version and just sold my TFC Uranos--but for a figure this good that's also relatively affordable, I think it's safe to say I'm in.

    No this should be about 4 or 5 inches taller I believe.

    About 2" from what I hear (assuming this is the same size as Devastator, which I'm 99.9% sure it is)

    Ok I'm working under the assumption that Ragnaros is 15 inches and zeta toys superion will be around 19 or 20 inches

    What did y’all do to fill in the chest? Did you just sand down the raised portion where the insignia goes or did you fill it in with something like milliput?

    We still don't know for sure but probably not. TigerBlade's adapters to use Zeta Onslaught with UT Bruticus might change that though but it's hard to tell at this point.

    I'm not sure I understand what they mean. Are they saying they're going to make more accurate heads and guns, or...? We need a better translation, for starters.

    He was mine too. Only Aerialbot that I owned. The Zeta version is amazing to me.

    Ragneros is bigger than 15", closer to 18" from what I've gleaned.

    What tampos? The retail release has none of that Zeta branding shit on the arms.
