    Just wondering as I have 5 now with more soon that I can post some pics up with my thoughts on them and where I see potential problems(rubs, breakage, and such) or am having issues with. Help people make plans for there own customs and things like that. Is this an idea I should go with? Or am I just hot air. LOL

    Ummm YEAH!!!! :lol  I think not only just customizers would benefit from this but also general non kitbashing buyer who get figures that are super loose. This would be a great heads up.

    I think it is a swell idea. Best thing you should do is do a video review in this manner, and have Stu put it on his UNofficial Radicons Youtube channel.

    This. And if you can't post a video then at least pics pointing out trouble areas.

    Well I was just making sure is all. Don't want anyone to be like look at this jerk showing off or something is all. Loose joints are a big problem on some of these, glad you brought that up.
    Cool Then I will start with whatever is requested I guess and make a list from there to work on when I have time.Not to sure about video, I am good with pictures but video stuff is beyond me. Not even sure how to record it through my webcam. Pictures for now I thinks.

    Ok then I already started Painting on soundwave but I guess since he will be the first one most will be able to get I should review him first. Oh I need to keep these guys all separated, nobody gets along. lol

    Drools at Sideswipe. He look like he could go both ways as in having good clearance and having terrible clearance issues.

    Just the one from the trailer(name?) but am working on getting the rest hopefully.
    LOL I know, not what I wanted to see when I tried to transform him without looking at any of the preview/review things on youtube. Its not so much that he rub's a lot but its more like its hard to not let areas touch because of how they made him transform. Like with his arms they are in the back and they have to be pushed in and click but the bumper area has hardly any clearance and rubs all along the top of the shoulder.

    No worries about "looking like a jerk"; your idea is awesome! It's that kind of shared knowledge that helps all of us save plenty of time and money, not to mention frustration and the weird look you get from girlfriends/wives/partners/assorted pets when you start swearing and rambling about "tight joints" and "rubbing issues"...

    YES !!!!!

    It's pretty easy, if you can figure out how to film it.
    I'd be willing to edit it for you.
    What kind of webcam you got anyways. I might be able to help you figure it out.

    you probably simply need to download some freeware program for recording vids/movies on your computer then.

    A search on Google says that I can record on quick time so that's solved. Now the problem is how to place my laptop so it will stay and you can see the figure clearly. lol

    set at a table, with it facing away from you, and between you and the toy. put a small piece of tape or something on the table that lets you know where the center of the "screen" is for your toy to go, so when you pick it up and manipulate it, you have a reference spot to keep it on screen.

    You got a Mac. you should be totally set for everything then.
    I've heard video editing on Mac's is super easy to do.
    But I would not know, "I'm a PC" :lol

    I don't know how you do this NP, I feel like I need to write a script out or something. lol Keep messing up and the webcam is always to bright or way to dark with my lighting. :banghead: 

    Think it might be easier with pictures and a sort of Q&A kinda thing.
