    Zodac arrived this morning so potential for panic is now over. His Paint job is pretty crappy - there isn't much paint needed on him but it looks like a 4 year old did the belt............oh well.

    On to Hordak!!

    Strange how Zodac's don't all arrive at the same time, as I (as I imagine others did) ordered him on the day (well, hour!) he went on sale.

    Fingers crossed for sometime this coming week!

    Sorry to hear about the paint app Motorthing!

    I think it's a bit odd how we all don't get them round about the same time.
    I think with Stratos, we all got him roughly within a day or so of each other.
    17 day is the usual!

    oh and incidentally, I have two Zodaks on the way so, if anybody needs one, give me a shout!

    My first Zodac arrived this morning. Will keep it MOC as it seems to have perfect paint job and good pose.

    Expect / hope my second one will arrive tomorrow. Strange how I can order two at the same time, yet they don't arrive together.

    My Zodac arrived this morning and despite not being anywhere near a remotely serious collector, I'm pretty infuriated at the state of his packaging. If I was a collector, I'd be livid...

    The past two figures I've had have been wrapped in that polystyrene sheeting - this time there was just a thin sheet at the bottom of the box and none on the top to protect the card.

    Two of the corners of card are bent, the card backing is warped as if it's got slightly damp at some point and the plastic bubble is actually coming away from the card backing up on the top left - about 1.5 square inches of plastic in fact have come away from the card!

    Matty say 'Adult Collector' on the boxes of these figures - well they need to start packaging them for their bloody target audience frankly.

    Hordak had better be given a bit more TLC.

    Shame that the latest reviews say that he isn't actually in the movie in his robot mode, eh? I guess they made it up for the toy - which is why his colour scheme is so G1-oriented (and cool). Blasted Bay!

    If you put two figures into a single order you're going to get stung with customs charges (£12 for me!) and it'll add another few days onto you getting them. I made this mistake with Merman (ordered two in a single order) and it took almost exactly a month for him to land with the £12 bill on top from the wonderful folks at Royal Mail

    I got my second Zodac this morning. Mint box and perfect pose.

    Not as amazing as some of the previous / coming figures, but still nice to have in my collection.

    I think the general consensus is that Zodak's paint job is a little sloppy.

    Mine is a bit around the belt!

    Just got home and 2 Zodac's are here!

    1 the card is damaged slightly and the figure inside appears to have a good paintjob - this is the one I opened.

    2 the card is pretty much perfect - the figure however is not - the face, armor are fine but for god's sake - THE BELT! how hard is it to paint a belt? it looks as if it was painted using a dish-cloth!

    Anyway issues aside, really happy with Zodac, I don't think the 4HM could have made him more perfect - I don't think he needs the white gloves afterall. He's my new favourite

    I still think design wise, he would be better as black dude with tattoos but I still like him!

    The guy who pianted the belt must've stoned at the time!

    Zodak was on the doorstep as I went out this morning.

    For the price he cost, I'd have hoped a little more care would have gone into painting that belt. It's terrible!

    Hooray, I got my Zodac!

    Other than a slight scratch on the white chest logo, I didn't find any problems with him.

    I never had the vintage Zodac (well, up until a few weeks ago) so he's almost like a brand new character to me.
