And there it is! Took a while for the most obvious repaint to show up, and it's an exclusive. Oh well.

I'll have to check the mailbox when I get home. I only live a couple of hours away from FubPub's office, and usually get their figures within the first couple of days of shipping.

Really wishing I'd preordered it when it was up at TfSource or BBTS. Guess I'll get into a bidding war with you in short order. May the wealthier man win.

you could have just paid the ridonkulous shipping charges and maybe have gotten it someday!

(and there's ebay, and BBTS and TFSource had pre-orders up for the individuals)

worst case scenario...grab a spare RTS Prime and some black paint.

I prefer to just curse the Yanks, it's cheaper.

I agree that bare, it's horrible. There's a way to greatly improve it though.

I didn't like it at first, but it grew on me. The bot mode has nice articulation and posability. But I've already got the original with Reprolabels and the Generations Gift Set repaint, so even if this was a retail release, I don't think I'd be interested in a 3rd version of this mold.

I got mine today and was pretty excited to see the FunPub box. I thought maybe they were going to finally redeem themselves for the past mistakes.

That lasted for about 50 seconds after I opened the box. Apparently that new mailer that FunPub was bragging about when they announced the service isn't all it's cracked up to be. The foam was too thick on the bottom and there is no foam on top. This resulted in the smokestacks rubbing against the top cardboard of the box and wearing the paint off. :BOOM:





I feel like I've given FunPub enough chances to get things right, but they keep finding ways to screw things up.

At any rate, everything else about the figure is in good shape. I don't want to risk getting a bad figure back just for two areas of rubbed paint, so I'm not going to send it back. I'll probably just touch it up with a little silver paint on my own. However, I will recommend that everyone check their figures when the come in.
