I finally got the last two figures I need to form Hercules. In the picture below, he is not combined because I working on something for him but this gives you an idea of its size. Stay tubed for review on collectiondx.
Takara... Seriously... What is going on? Your products are horrible as of late. Lack of paint apps on an otherwise good figure is one thing, but shitty molding and QC issues is another. I just opened this guy up and there are scuff marks all over the silver in tapedeck mode. Then i went to put on the shouldercannon/battery and realized that the red stripe sticker was applied crooked. Not only was it severly crooked, but it was on the opposite end over another sticker! Then there is an eyesore on the shoulder where the two halves of the mold meet or dont meet I should say. Cheap dollar store toys have these issued, but a 70 dollar collectible shouldnt. Takara needs to step it up or change factories. Im tired of expensive crap. Get your act together... Even smaller third party companies are putting out better stuff. Now im wondering if I should get it exchanged. I probably wont as this probably affects the store i buy from. Otherwise its a cool black repaint of Soundwave. Cassette robots are pretty good.
Wow, im really impressed at this upgrade. The plastic colors are dead on and high quality. Proportions are nice although I wish they had included something to fix that offset arm Devastator has. Good stuff and inexpensive. Shown is my KO Devastator next to my Encore Devastator with Junkion Upgrade.
Just opened this guy up... Its way overpriced. It looks like a standard run of the mill transformer... Plain plastic and paint apps. Nothing here that screams Masterpiece. I'll admit, the cape and crown are cool and the only two things that hint at his high price tag but Takara definitely skimped on this one. If it at least had panel lining and some weathering, it would have done wonders to justify its price tag. But as it is, im somewhat disappointed. Looks like a toy and not a collectible.

Just making some room for Miracle Production's Vehicle Voltron. If you didn't already preorder him with Toyfreakz.com you are out of luck unless you buy from an asian distributor. Classic Media has sent out a cease and desist letter to all US stores selling preorders. Maybe Mattel caught wind of this and put a stop to it. Toyfreakz will be honoring their proerders already placed so i'm all set. Just need a tad more room for the big guy...well so much for making room...
