  1. I never even took my covers out of the box because I knew I'd lose them immediately.
  2. You can try using some needle-nose pliers to isolate one side of the joint while you rotate the other with your fingers. It's still kind of hectic-feeling and may scratch the paint on the joint, but should help things.
  3. Mine just arrived today as well, sooner than expected. Halfway through transforming, I both love it and hate it for the complexity. I'll probably love it once I have it figured out. I haven't seen it mentioned yet (and I didn't take any pics before transforming), but you can also mount the Imai missle pod under one of the wings in fighter mode. Why you'd want to, I don't know, but it's nice to have the option.
  4. The stand attachment here sure looks like the connecting boom for a Tread...
  5. It's a bit of a balancing act. In case it's not clear (the instructions don't say anything about the stand) you remove the claw and shove the peg into a hole on the bike. It's a tight fit.
  6. Quick shot. Tough to get dynamic poses in armor mode.
  7. One pleasant surprise is I haven't had either of the ankle guards pop off yet. On Stick and Rey they'd fly away if you looked at them funny.
  8. Seems like it's removable. It's not attached in this photo.
  9. That shot of GoLion and Dairugger together looks great. Keep 'em coming!
  10. To be honest, I didn't know that they actually ever got around to putting out more than 3000 of them. I have one of the early numbers. Thanks for putting up the side-by-side.
  11. The biggest combining Voltron is the Mattel Club Lion Force Voltron. Though we'd all be forgiven for trying to forget it. (Photo nabbed from TheFwoosh)
  12. Speaking of the Toynami Alphas, I recall reading way back in the day that the first 1500 (I think) units of Vol 1 were to have slightly differently colored intakes than the later units. Jenius has some good photos comparing vols 1-3 and it's clear 1 has brighter intakes, but I don't think I've ever seen a side-by-side to compare Vol 1 pre-1500 to post-1500, though. Can anyone confirm?
  13. That blazing sword effect is pretty cool. It'd like to see something like that for the SOC version.
  14. I see that Hasbro has revealed a "fit in my display cabinet" mode for Unicron...
  15. So are the intake covers on the Legioss articulated, or is that a parts swap?
  16. Looks like the GX-71 is back up for preorder on BBTS. https://www.bigbadtoystore.com/Product/VariationDetails/89872
  17. That sucks. The Vallejo Mecha paint line may have a color that's a good match for the Mospeada.
  18. GX-71 preorders are open again at BBTS https://www.bigbadtoystore.com/Product/VariationDetails/89872
  19. I think the idea of the funky helmet visor is that the targeting system is a HUD.
  20. I doubt they're getting it sooner. I imagine they're making an educated guess as to what their stock will be and are trying to get PO business locked down ahead of the other sites.
  21. Preordered on BBTS. NOW WAS THAT SO HARD, BANDAI?
