So happy that stupid space helmet comes off !!!! :D In the parts box it goes...

Loving Brawn too. Cant wait to get an Outback version to replace the crappy RTS version. And the scout size really works great. I wish they would re-issue Huffer and Seaspray larger too.

Yeah, I too am finally getting some information back when I enter my tracking number at the Hong Kong post site. I originally got my e-mail from Igear on 28 September saying my item was shipping, but it wasn't until yesterday that my items were finally leaving Hong Kong for the USA. Talk about going through tons of paperwork and red tape just to receive toys from overseas.

Either that or Igear stretched the truth a bit as to when they were actually shipping out our items. I'm betting they gave us an estimated day our items would ship, only it didn't happen until about two weeks later.

Well, I have Brawn in hand. And love him. :D He's my Classics Brawn, now. Slightly tricky to get the legs together properly, but overall he's great. Love the shotgun. 8)

Finally got these two myself. I was plesantly surprised by the size and "Cosmos'" accessories. They actually included that stand with him. I thought that was just a prop!

"Brawn" had a flaw right off the bat, though. The ball joint holde ron his left arm was warped right out of the box and it comes off like nothing. It's not really broken - it can go back in. But it's definately not as secure as it ought to be.

Having these guys in hand also makes me think they must have simply upsized their Legends class molds. The size of the ball joints on these guys are rediculous.

I don't know what's going on with the HK post on this delivery. When I entered my tracking number on the www.usps.com website, it showed my package arrived to NY's sorting facility on the 15th... 4 days ago. I estimate I'll get it either tomorrow or Monday while my Toys R Us Deluxe Swerve is to be delivered by Tuesday, the 23rd.

So I preordered Hench a while ago, but after seeing some fan pics of Not-Cosmos I decided to bite on it as well.

It is a nice classics updated mold. The head turned me off, but now seeing some closer-up pics it seems like a pretty cool "battle rage" face or something.

I think now the only think I don't like is the green they used for Not-Cosmos is not the darker G-1 green, but I guess I can live with that.

I agree re. the Cosmos green, I'm still hoping it will look darker/more muted in hand. Also, these guys are a lot bigger than I thought!

Nope, It's a candy green, but I think it really works with the '50s-esque spaceman theme they are using.

Yup. Looks like he cut out the support struts that go over the shoulders that mount the car body kibble. Would have had to separate the car body from the back too.

Kind of like the mod.
I wish the car hood at least slid back so you could get to the head easier.

But all-in-all these are excellent!

Finally got mine. Love em.

That mod would look nice but make hench a little ass-heavy. The lack of paint accents hurts both a little and that gray plastic on Hench really bugs me - where are companies getting this cheap gray re-grind stuff? Hegemon uses the same stuff and it just begins to look bad after a while.

Other than that IP issues be damned...I'm on borad for the whole mini series. Cant wait for Cogz now. And Huffer/Rager really needs a scale-up to match them now too.

I estimated right, my Hench and UFO were delivered on Saturday, unfortunately I had to work and wasn't able to receive the package and sign for it. But I was off today and swung by the post office and picked it up.

So far I'm loving Hench/Not-Brawn and UFO/Not-Cosmos both. The left hip ball-joint on Cosmos is a little loose, but other than that, both are cool. I'm only going to be displaying them the majority of the time in robot modes anyway.

Now to start saving for the Not-Throttlebots, Grind Rod/Not-Rollbar and Aurora/Not-Searchlight as well as the new Not-Aerialbots. Don't even get me started on the new MP Soundwave w/Laserbeak, Rumble and Buzzsaw, and Frenzy and Ravage.

I usually do the same, but the UFO mode with the stand was too cool to pass up. I have mine hovering over the other mini-bots.

This mod makes me remember one thing I thought Hecnch had when I first saw pics of him. Namely a hinge on that "roof" of his. Like "Huffer" (although nowehere as bad) that feature makes it annoying to turn his head.

Yes, but only in the past week has it worked. I believe Daimchoc mentioned there was a holiday observed at the end of September which may have caused some delay from Hong Kong post. I just checked the status, USPS provides up to 10/19, where the package is sitting in New York. So maybe I'll have it by the weekend... (pretty please!?!)

Ah, mine now says it was processed in HK on the 22nd. I'm very paranoid about this, because my previous order from iGear never arrived and they won't replace it or refund the money. They won't even respond, for that matter. This all came to light AFTER I placed this preorder, otherwise I never would have. So hopefully this shipment makes it and then I can avoid ever doing business with these criminals again.

And it's in my hands this evening. Hench is a BIG dude! Thankfully, I don't have any troubles with the legs like some folks were talking about. UFO is considerably smaller, but iGear makes up for the size by providing a platform for him to be posed on, either alt or bot mode. I'm glad to have these in my hands, now to get some faction symbols! :BOT: :KREMZEEK:

Andrius, good luck on your shipment. I hope things are right for you this time.

Got both from TFsource over the weekend. and I must say.. I'm pretty disappointed by both.. they are what they are and they serve the purpose well but they lack... something.. they are both very boring IMO. they are much needed on the shelf and looks great with the classics gang but I don't find myself playing with them much. got the prime entertainment two pack to get the kids this weekend as well and I couldn't put the Megatron down. I didn't even expect to like it but its so much fun to transform and pose...

I've been waiting for UFO and Hench since they were announced and for $70 bucks its very disappointing.. hopefully repolabels makes them more interesting..
Looking for:
Black Big Convoy
Botcon Redux Spark (Pyro)

for Trade:
MISB FE Arcee
MISB RTS G2 Laser Prime
MISB Generation WFC Megatron
