  1. seriously f this p.o. bs. i need a new hobby.
  2. where is everyone ordering the strike parts from?
  3. so after dodging a bullet with the ankles, i decided to transform the SV and place it into my display cabinet. man. the QC and plastic quality on this jet sucks. left leg, when extending to Gerwalk mode, the upper thigh, knee area extends out, there is a tiny peg that is inserted to keep the two sides of the knee in place, and on mine, it just seems the peg is too short. the peg is popping out of one side and its not like you can push in the otherside of the peg to catch it. the plastic around this peg hole seems very fragile too, to the point where i dont want to transform it into Gerwalk anymore after this 1 time, at least in Battroid mode, these parts slide back into the leg and retract back inside, so that loose peg isnt a problem. but still.. very annoying. After Battroid transformation was completed, the wing fold /shoulder piece where you have to clip in the arms is already seeing plastic stress marks, and that's all due to the pivot design of that upper shoulder piece. (you know that little flap that needs to go up) and you tab/place the back to the rounded edge of the shoulder.. man that was a dumb design. to make the plastic that thin. It's an impressive piece if only in fighter or battroid, but with gerwalk and the limited feet angle placement. i give this a 7/10 on execution, unlike their other Zero toys which i have (A,S, and D) were all very impressive...
  4. isn't that a sigh of relief? same feels when i opened my box to find correct ankles. lol. our hobby shouldn't have to be like this.
  5. so, whats really the distribution of bad ankle joints? did they say when they think the bad batch started? mine was shipped from AmiAmi around 9/3. upon inspection I lucked out and L/R ankles are ok on mine. My BIL's from NY is inbound and he hasn't received his yet to check..
  6. may i suggest you change to a different hand soap? or use lotion. dry skin could inadvertently sand off the tampo paint on the premium versions. haha. jk
  7. mine just arrived via DHL from Amazon. Exterior Amazon box, slightly damaged, however black box was fine. the only thing is.. the black box is like. really really not impressive at all. lol
  8. I didn't think this was as hard to get as the VF-25s / -31s.. I might be wrong.
  9. my RA is at the post office to get picked up... in other news, saw that HLJ has more Arcadia VF-0A available. lol. i guess with the armor, they re-released a bunch more jets to go with it!
  10. picked up a Reximus Prime 2.0 (oversized KO of the Masterpiece Grimlock) overall impression: its pretty neat. Paint is a little scratched off the top of his head but its ok. Left side is my US Grimlock. Hotwheels to scale.
  11. I mean. with the 935 Porsche race car had some ridiculously high side skirts and rear bumper designs, so props to Maketoys in trying to get it vehicle correct. but with that, you get the leg kibble coming down under the chassis... prob a design tradeoff since they couldn't tuck the leg hinges and everything underneath... too bad-
  12. ugh. boo.. thanks for the quick response- well, I guess can either wait for if/when official Takara release or just always keep him in Bot mode. I saw the online Chinese review of him, I thought it was really well done but they purposely didn't show the rear! also. who needs four VF-31Js?! I cant even get one. sheesh.
  13. how do you like the Downbeat? is the rear bumper really detached in alt mode? all the preview images from behind have like the white part of his rear bumper way below normal, not sure if its Jazz's shins or was a mis transformation.. I like Maketoys more than Toyworld.. but hesitant on purchasing either of them...
  14. I have this figure, as well as the C2-B5 from Disney store.. overall impressions: Eh. display is fine, playability suffers due to articulation limitation from being die-cast and the joints. the C2-B5 can seriously be used as a weapon if $hit hit the fan as it is so heavy and dense, you can throw it at someone since it weighs like 3#.
