This is just a notification that all the orders have been fulfilled one day ahead of schedule, so you all should be receiving these in a few days. Also, just a word of warning about the seekers. The wings do not fold back in robot mode like they do with Henkei Ramjet (they kind of just stick out of the sides in bot mode). I already had one buyer snap off his wing and ask for a replacement. Unfortunately these are sold out and irreplaceable, so please pay attention to the instructions *before* transforming him.
Ok that’s all I guess, and look for your package in the mail sometime this week!
Just a word of caution to the community, so that you can keep your toys in one piece. I don't have mine yet, so I have no personal experience with the 'new' wings yet.

Not this time, I've dealt with Bodhar, he does quality work, and if he sees the product is f'ed, I doubt he would ship it.

But it's not Bodhars responsibility to replace it.

With no shortage of plastic or cheap labor on that side of the world I cant understand how they justify charging 40 to 60 bucks for a figure. Im dying to get Thrust and Dirge but I will wait for some extravagent collecter to face forclosure and sell his collection cheap on e-bay...lol
Henkai close shop? You do realize that makes no sence, It's like saying I hope armada doesn't reopen.
The cost is higher due to the smaller production run, just as the convention specials are more expencive. The rising costs of business do not effect costs as much as you seem to think they do.

You're right on this. I was immediately thinking of the primary wings that fold up behind the upperback/shoulder area, but when I read your post, I realized that someone tried to put the back fins at an angle, like you do with Ramjet.
Here's a recent thread that shows that the main wings do fold up:

If you had Henkei Ramjet, you'd have a better understanding of this.
His wings fold back and rotate on a peg, however, they are most of the time quite tight to begin with. The guy that broke his was probably under the assumption that Thrust and Dirge were the same way.

Dirge might be my first Gentai purchase, but not if his fragility or QC are in question.

Hope these guys ship out soon.
