Apparently my Yellow has shipped from Amazon JP and will be coming in a couple of days.  I thought it would be coming way later with another order so I’m not complaining.

...and I managed to break it. 

No idea why that part is plastic.

Kinda wish that the blue on the bike and armor was just a shade or two lighter, but I'll live with it.

I realized today that i accidently pre-ordered two Yellows from amiami. Not sure how i did that but i figured it would be a problem. I paid for one and asked for a cancellation on the other explaining it was an accident. I figured see how i paid for one they would understand. 2 hours later they email me back denying my request and scolding me for not being more careful ordering. WTF!

Aww man Not good. So Same transformation process as the other Two? 

The area broke made of the same material as earlier models??

I think the Height is suffice. Don't forget JIM Is taller (if they Make him) than Yellow. 

Is Yellow's face/head smaller than the other two? Looks it in the photo.

Are you in the US? If so I'll take that second one off your hands. I mistakenly ordered one when I should have gotten two.

Same transformation.  To be honest I never looked at the material on the other two because I didn’t have any reason to.  That little bit is plastic here and I’d argue it should be metal.  

Anybody ever tried a replacement from amazon japan before?  I clicked on the return/replace button but it only gave me options for returning.

She maybe the issue is the rotating bit the piston plugs into is slightly cocked and that makes it really hard to turn.  I had to put a lot of pressure on it to rotate.  Maybe that pressure translated through the arm and stretched or weakened that plastic bit?

I have.  It was a bit of a pain.  Explanations and photographs were required.  <_<

It's possible. Though not had issues with the other 2 when transforming them.

Maybe alas too much force.

 

Good luck on a smooth replacement from Amazon. Jpn.

Details and photos tend to be the Norm with Most Replacement requests btw.

Heads up, all: The windshield is BARELY supported in there, but is retained by a thin enough piece where, if not aligned perfectly when transforming, the tab holding it in breaks off.

Supergluing now...

Not that difficult for me to be honest.  I’ll take it over nothing at all.

Yeah.  I partially broke that tab too.  Another thing that wasn’t even a consideration on the previous two releases.

Mine snapped on barely touching it. I'm looking at this break and that looks weird. Thinking about contacting Sentinel

I’m looking to preorder the Legioss from Anime export. Only problem is that their yen price is 22,500. When I put that in the conversion calculator, it comes out to about $205 US dollars. On their site, it lists it at about $215 US dollars. I contacted them about it but haven’t heard back. I’m wondering why the $10 difference. Any thoughts?

Probably was the conversion rate when they put up the preorder.

Any one know what DHL Express "Shipment on hold" means? It's been moving quickly until this status. It already cleared customs hub in Cincinnati, OH and is currently being held in Orlando, FL since 7:30 am Friday.

Call DHL Customer support and give them your tracking number and ask what the hold means. Might be nothing, or might need something.

Little concerned about the windshield and chest breakages some of you have posted about. 
 

cancelled my order from Amazon Japan, going to wait and see if it’s more widespread before I reorder. I don’t have a lot to spend on figures and I don’t want to deal with trying to get replacement parts internationally.

Let me know if you do call Customer support and what they say, if you don't mind, adugifever.  I got the same message.  My email says it's scheduled to be delivered on Monday, so I was going to wait until after then to call if I still hadn't received it.

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.

I also kept having the right arms pop off and with the cloth in the way while in ride armor its frustrating as heck to get it back in (other parts pop off)

Tried calling this morning. DHL is closed on weekends, unfortunately. No ETA for mine. I'll have to wait for Monday I guess. I'll post news.

Give me some time (still waiting for mine to ship).

I've already got some pose ideas brewing. ;)

isn't the transformation pretty much the same as the previous bike?

Should be. I'm not in a hurry though. I have two Beagle's and two Sentinel's still in boxes still. I'll wait for the official word on all the tricks.

Some call me Hammer Hands.:p

Could you show how you have the stands holding the ride armor from behind? I am not feeling confident in the stand and mine kept trying to drunk dive.
