Opened mine yesterday and strongly prefer this version over the Generations one - might be personal preference, but I prefer this head to body ratio, and I'm okay with the legs. The back kibble is massive, but the legs can easily handle the weight unlike my Generations copy (heels kept collapsing). Overall I like how this is a much sturdier toy.

Go to Bunnings and get some putty in a tube and a chemist for some black nail polish. Add about 1mm to each heel.

She goes from unstable to dynamic. I can't understate the improvement.

As for TR Windblade. That face is so pretty and she has nailed the alt mode.

Generations wins robot mode with the litheness (Once fixed) and possibility in places like the wrists and wings.

RID is probably the most balanced of the three but her simplicity shows in places like the tubby alt mode.

Maybe if we put all three in a bag the perfect Windblade will step out?

I know TR Windblade is divisive, but I think she's fantastic and by far the best toy of the character yet.

Yeah I've got more than a few figs in desperate need for some minor fixes like that.

Worst QC problem in desperate need of attention would is my CW Ultra Magnus, who's hands can't grip on to his gun at all - like the old man has arthritis.

Update: Thumb on mine's right hand is cracked-tried to glue it but I think it's likely to fall off :S

Should still hold the swords but it's the first time I've had a problem with open handed figures

That sucks to hear

Have you tried Loctite 406?
It's worked very well for a 1mm joint I needed to glue together (an antenna, pics here: http://www.otca.com.au/boards/showth...t=13888&page=3).

This photo's showing what I'd prefer and while I'm at it I'd like to point out that...

A) The scabbard from Gen. Windblade can be attached to the hole behind the cockpit on TR Windblade but sadly there are no holes for the tabs.
B) There's a tab hole for the scabbard to be attached to TR Windblade's thigh just like Gen. Windblade.
C) Gen. Windblade's jet mode looks very lightweight. Like as if it's a prototype and a more advanced one awaits and lo and behold the TR version delivers (I love her inverted wings).
