BBTS does not get receive import releases until three to four weeks after the overseas release.  I've told plenty of other people unless it's a domestic release you will have to wait if you've pre-ordered from BBTS.  You won't hear anything about it until January.

Thanks... I'm in no rush.  I've been waiting since April already.  I was just worried that something might have gone wrong as so many were getting theirs and I hadn't even seen a shipping notice yet.  All makes sense now...

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. 

Just got an email from DHL that my package is out for delivery.  Hopefully, you got the same, adugifever.

First I needed to repaint that visor, to conceal those ugly lines inscribed on the interior...The micro-missile covers were removed, sanded flat, repainted, and then reattached to the front.

You fixed the two things I don't like about the Sentinel Blowsperior! Nice!

so i am weak after seeing the recent photos... and since i already have the first 2 and amazon jp still has stock....i've decided i'm gonna complete the trio and then also get fuke.  thanks guys!  haha.  now i got to make myself be OK with JUST the blue legioss (and tled if they go for it).  bandai makes it easy to not buy additional stuff after beign lucky enough to snag a DXC VF-1J because well preorders with them suck and i don't like aftermarket prices on dx chogokins.  sentinel is going to require more self control.  lol

Mine just showed up 15 minutes ago. Apparently the "hold" was because there was no weekend service in my area since i'm somewhat in a remote part. So, they held it until Monday and it started moving again at 7am this morning.

It's even more amazing in-hand. Won't transform yet, though. Gonna wait for videos, so I know if there's anything to watch out for. I do appreciate all the accessories they packed with it. I'm not gonna try to do any mods. I've accepted that it was designed to be this way. Yellow's face shield looks better for some reason. Maybe the jack-o-lantern look grew on me. So far, my new favorite in this line.

Definitely ready for that Bartley, and Genesis Breakers, and a vintage retool!

I didn't get Kitu-Kato from amazon.jp. :(

 

i spent about an hour online trying to figure out what the flavors were.  No luck though.  They've got hundreds of flavors of KitKats in Japan!  its insane!!

Played around with the figure and bike. 

I wanted to let everyone know that with my Ride Armor missile piece underneath the chest cover is not glued in place and has a tendency to pop out when opening the cover.  At first I thought the piece was missing from the factory but found the missile piece on the floor, YMMV.

There’s ALOT of QC issues being pointed out so far..... right?  You’d think with how many delays this thing had there’d be less.

A little early to even say "a lot" at this point... a toy with insufficient glue is a pretty common issue for all toys (and, thankfully, very easily remedied). The broken wind screen and broken pivot were serious but only one case of both so far. I've seen a few comments pop up on my Ride Armor reviews saying that people broke their 52F/T. At the end of the day, all of these designs are crazy complicated so a lot of care is going to be necessary (and there will be lots of areas of potential issues from the factory also)

I think the delays here just had to do with factory availability... not Sentinel breaking artist proofs and requesting durability improvements.

Looking back you’re absolutely right. A couple would be a better word. I’m coming at it from the standpoint of a relatively new collector of these items who has had a few purchases experience snaps and breaks and stuff that killed me as I realized what I’d spent on these things. Seeing even a few comments about issues makes me wary that’s all.  Gomen'nasai.

Pretty much true of the internet in general. Everything is multiplied.

That said, I'll wait for your video to transform mine.

Wise choice.  Of all the transforming toys there has ever been, the name Mospeada guarantees challenge and more than a little sweat.

Let's Not forget when Stig came out many complaints from people. Made it sound like it was gonna be unsuccessful.

Though that Is Not the case.

I love the triplets of both characters I have and found them great to customise too.

ALL brands have Flaws of some kind IMHO.

Transformation is not CM Brave tricky and personally pretty Damn Nice (same as CM considering its 1/18th scale).

Yellow still with customs so cannot say But I'm excited as hell.

I'm pretty sure that part that broke on mine was just unfortunately faulty.  The shearing on the plastic is so weird and it wasn't like the traditional snap you'd expect when breaking something.  Though it should still be metal and not plastic just for durability purposes.

Could it be that it had a small air bubble inside?

I think I should have gotten two of these. I sure do like it!

Pro Tips:

-Don't pull on the blades hard. They will come right out. I wasn't able to pop it back in because I couldn't tell what needed to engage what. I popped the cover off....breaking a few pins (it's glued). I got it back together and re-glued it and I think it's fine.

-Getting the wrist ball joint back on the hands is super fun! I ended up needing to use pliers to push on it hard enough. Make sure you're in a controlled environment for that. The ball joint/wrist popped out of the pliers and went sailing across the shop. I'm shocked I found it.

I've never experienced that with plastic but perhaps.  It just sort of went, loose, and then was detached.  There was no clear snapping like plastic usually does.  And it looks more like a tear.

I think I have time to do one more review before I package everything up and move over the holidays... and I think that review will have to be the Fewture Garland so I can get customer service from HLJ if I find anything wrong with it :)

Had to drive over to DHL to pickup my amazon package today .  Looks like they are slammed with package for delivery and is about 2 days behind in some zip codes in my area . B))  

take a look at your status if there’s no delivery yet

Thanks for update @jenius, was also waiting for your vid.  Time to crack open Yellow.  I'll watch your old video.  Are the only differences the forearms and the chest missiles, in terms of transformation?

Off the top of my head the only differences are:

-Chest missiles

-Gauntlets. But not different too. They manipulate and pop in the same way. Don't tug on the blades too hard......

-The tail section of the motorcycle doesn't collapse like the others as far as I can tell.

video review soon?

Yea I'll get it up in the next day or two. Actually wanting to finish the full gallery first with this one so that once I'm done recording that video I can put it away forever if it pisses me off as much as Stick did.

The shoulder armor on mine keep popping off if I look at it wrong. Anyone else having the same issue? Seems like they didn't make the ball socket right for them. Also, I had such a hard time transforming Stick that I'm afraid to touch this one.
