    Anybody on here got these 2 figures from BBTS yet? Thoughts?

    I got both of them. My Slithe looks great and is rock solid. Cracker looks great too, but his rounded peg leg makes it hard for him to stay standing. I would have preferred they made that leg square at the bottom so it could help him stand better. But of course that would lead to people complaining that he's not animation accurate. As it is, I have Cracker's left hand touching Slithe's arm to help with stability.

    If I collected Slithe, I’d be all over this. He looks awesome to my eyes. I don’t see a color issue at all, feels very subjective. I’m happy for the collectors enjoying the fig, a win for some of us finally.

    Hello!

    I received mine and they were well worth the wait. Detail was superb.

    Glad to hear that. I should get mine early next week. So far praise all round everywhere. Well, mostly

    I do wonder when Jaga will make his debut. BBTS has no clue when theirs will arrive. S7 will ship from today, right?

    I'm wondering about Jaga too. That old fool always goes missing.

    This is Jaga when you finally take him out of the box:

    The first notices for BBTS customers have gone out saying W3 will charge soon. Guess Jaga is in the building!

    Will be a fine addition but here's a thought, seeing as how Tygra and Mumm-Ra are being re-done like Cheetara, how come we can't get Grune and Pumyra sooner like we are with Slithe and Jaga? For all I know, the whole of wave 2 could have been incorrect but as far as we know, it was just Mumm-Ra and Tygra.

    I was just thinking about that today. If they have several that are ok why not send them out even if its just one at a time.

    I cancelled Wave 3 altogether, but maybe will reorder again at a later date (or if supplies last).

    Exactly. It would give the line some much needed momentum. Waiting for the delayed figures due to QC issues wouldn't be such a drag if we were still getting some of the other figures that don't have the QC issues. The slow shipping is all the more reason to get as many completed figures to customers as possible. If I were Super7 and I had received wave 2 with 2 characters done correctly and 2 incorrect, I would have sent back the characters that needed re-doing and sent out the correct ones to fans like they've done with wave 3. It makes sense with how long fans have waited and it's gone down well so I'm glad that they thought to do it for wave 3 but what about wave 2? Or am I missing something? If Grune and Pumyra were ready, we should have been given those too, along with Jaga, Slithe and Cracker. At least that way fans would be getting 4-5 characters this fall and all of a sudden, this line wouldn't seem like such a disaster. It would be like an epic comeback. I skipped Cracker so it would be 4 figures for me but 5 for people who didn't skip any of them. I still think us getting what we're getting now is good but it could have been so much better if we had been getting Grune and Pumyra at this time too or at least sooner than the rest because at least then the wait between figures wouldn't be as bad or as long. It would do more to remedy the disappointment of not having a complete wave 2 and 3 yet. At this point we should have already had those and be close to getting wave 4. I think wave 4 was originally due for November this year.

    I think they are trying to figure things out as they go. They aren't Mattel or Hasbro, they are still relatively new to this and growing at a pace that clearly has caused some growing pains, especially with the challenges of the pandemic economy.

    So images of Jaga have surfaced. The face is garbage. Pure garbage. Big time disappointment.

    I think I’m out. Too many delays, too many screw-ups, poor communication.
