Great figure upgrade. I thought there was a whole sword for drift in there... hope he just missed the hilt in that giant box. I can't wait till I get mine, only a couple weeeks to go.

Wow...50 views of the review and not one comment. I thought that there would be some chatter about the first video review of this set.

i've been on the fence on this guy ever since i heard something about dunking the head in hot water. Anyone know how the head actually gets swapped?

Does Maketoy have any affiliate with FansProject? Some of the way that the armor goes on reminds me alot how City Commander gets put together.

I don't think there is nothing wrong with the boiling water method. I used that to fix the stress marks and tightness of RTS Primes hands and united Prime as well. It just softens the plastic so it's easier to pit on without damaging it....cold water afterwards tightens it to the desired size. Have you notices stress marks on the inside of primes hands? If you have pour boiled water over it..put his sword in....more boiled water...let it rest in the hit water for a min or so ....pour cold water over it. That should fix it.

He is only about a head shorter than the classics voyager prime now...
The wouldn't even have to change much to make a Scourge repaint for this mold, I am thinking this is what is the big surprise is at Botcon this year...a updated RID Scourge.
