    I just recieved my alternator Deceticharge today from a fellow board member. I can't believe I was going to pass on this guy. Awesome figure.

    The head sculpt is awesome. The legs kill the toy unfortunately.

    I LOVE Decepticharge -- one of the BEST alternators IMHO.

    Two things you can do to improve him a little:

    1) Find something to stick in there to replace the barrel. You don't have to have the authentic repro barrel, when any number of cheap KO guns, missiles, or other toy gun barrels can be stuck in there instead. All you need to do is drill a little hole and wedge a pin in there, making sure that whatever you plugged on can pass through the opening at the bottom and lay flush against the chassis.

    2) Go to any hardware store and get some little black rubber plumbing washers, something like 1/8" thick and 1/2" wide. You can get an assorted pack for less than a buck. If you take off his head, slip one of these on over the balljoint and around his neck-pole like a collar, it doesn't impact the transformation or his head posability in any way, but it helps with the "beanpole" neck appearance, making him look a little more solid - bridging his head to his shoulders with a neck. I did this to him AND Windcharger, and it really helps.
