Re: Titans Returns Sky Shadow Released At Retail

sky shadow looks better. I will grab one if it shows up online. Hopefully takara version of overlord will be darker in colour and I might get that too

That's hilarious. Someone needs to bring this up at Welland town hall. They are still mulling over the Canada's first Beer store electric scooter drive through window, here, though.

Mine is a tad loose there as well. Nothing that some nail polish clear coat can't fix though. Aside from that he's actually the best retail figure I've gotten in a while. Crisp paint, tight joints and pretty darn fun. Glad I grabbed him instead of waiting for Overlord. Can't say I'm a fan of that colour scheme after seeing the reveal.

Its pretty crazy but Sky Shadow turned out to be the one that really owns that mold. He looks way better than overlord and that is in no small part to hs face being better integrated with that helmet. Plus the colour scheme has aged much better and he looks like a modern version of that toy rather than poor man's G1 overlord. I mean if you are gonna go full G1 on the guy, just rerelease the g1 toy and call it a day. No collector would have a problem with that.

That's my issue with Sixshot. It's just G1 with a lil bit of articulation thrown in there, yet somehow, not executed as well as the G1.

Sky Shadow is fun all over. I'll get Overlord bit I'm not gonna go crazy looking for him. I've already got Carnifex and it's literally impossible to beat that thing if you're a fan of the comics.

Mine had a loose right arm. I had to tighten the screws, but it's fine after.

I picked up mine at Walmart at Markville. There was another one as of Thursday

Re: Titans Returns Sky Shadow Released At Retail

He is a good figure but honestly this was a pass for me. Had I not got him for the price I did it would have been a pass since I have the deluxe and want Overlord when it comes out. Carnifex is with my Mp section so the retail Overlord will go with my classics. This Sky Shadow will stay in base mode beside his deluxe self

Re: Titans Returns Sky Shadow Released At Retail

it's a really fun figure. The only complaint is I wish the tankhead actually swivelled (especially for a Leader class) but it's still really simplistic and fun.

I agree this does a much better job at its respective Classics representation than Sixshot, and speaking of Carnifex.... I really need to pick one up asap!

Re: Titans Returns Sky Shadow Released At Retail

Got one from Walmart.ca, got disappointed after the first transformation. Pretty but too lazy/boring for a Leader class toy.
