    Thank you very much for the feedback. I pretty much had to buy a new lens with a smaller mm to be able to do it, but its worth it.

    Thanks man.

    I know. I re watched the video and was pretty on with the names.

    And thanks Cecilia.

    Excellent review. Your voice never quite sounds like I expect it to be. I always think it should be more Ving Rhames-style bass since your photos are the equivalent of red meat.

    I really like how the figure looks. I hope maybe if the MP's take a little longer to arrive on shelves, I can snag one of these. I wish they had made the powermaster figure a little more see through since the cockpit is very obviously designed to give a lot of light piping to the center of the chest, but then it gets covered up. It's like he's screaming for an LED kit.

    Dumb questions: does the weapon peg anywhere on the top in Alt mode for an attack mode?
    I also noticed behind the gray panels on the shoulders that he has some missile pods ala Gundam/Roadbuster.
    And finally, the green blade, does it have the ability to peg in his hand without the other weapon, so he could have blade and gun at the same time?

    Oh yeah, I knew which hinge he was talking about, I just thought maybe he could expound further or maybe even post some pics of it.

    And you're right, that hinge is extremely tight. But if you're mindful of it and grip it properly, I don't think it should be a problem. I've transformed mine a ton and haven't had a problem yet.

    I even theorized in another thread that maybe it is sos tight because it will be used in the coming add-on/trailer armor everyone thinks is coming.


    Just wanted to add a few pics of the sorta "bayonet mode" I discovered...

    Hey, thanks my Midwest compadre. Thanks a lot.

    And dude, I'm doing the Medabots figures soon!

    - Ving Rhames would talk like me if he was a nerd like me too. :lol  And thanks for the compliment, man!

    - I'm at work now, and I'll be glad to answer your other question in about45 minutes when I'm home.

    Great review and perfect pics, but your killing me here! Mine still says pending, and they don't seem to want to reply to emails so the wait is getting to me.

    I can't agree with you enough about ball jointed ankles. You can tell what a difference articulated ankles make by looking at this figure, or MP-10 for that matter. For any 'bot designer, that should be the first point of articulation they should worry about. I'm saddened to see a lot of future Hasbro figures still not including it, even on Voyagers like FOC Grimlock and Prime Ultra Magnus.

    Dorm, you should check out the main thread... People have posted multiple ways to display the gun and the knife.

    i would have posted a pic, but you really cant see the problem. I'm not exagerating when i say the joint was so tight that the plastic was going to rip. i've fixed it now, so no worries.

    if anyone else is having the issue its an easy fix, just unscrew the waist and maybe pop off the legs so you can reach the joint properly and shave a hairs width or so off of the hinge's nubs, so that theres a bit less pressure on the plastc.

    ill try and post a pic later.

    Thanks man! And, honestly, they're moving through these orders pretty quick so I wouldn't be surprised if everyone had them within the next week or two.

    Great vid TJ! And keep those pics coming dude!


    Good question about mounting options in altmode. I know for sure that you can form the altmode with out the gun in place, forming the trailer hitch as intended. But I'm not so sure about pegging the gun in anywhere else but the hands.

    As for the green blades ability to peg in alternate places, daimchoc is right, you have a few options.

    There is the shoulder mount that has already been shown...
    [​IMG]

    Then there is the wrist mount option. Probably more of what you were looking for...
    [​IMG]

    And then there are a couple alternate places to peg it on the gun, for a sort of "bayonet" mount...

    Nice pics in dyanmic poses, TFao.

    For those who have received their steelcore, like to ask from the postal box, where did fansproject ship out the steelcore from? Is it Canada? USA? Japan, etc etc? Like to estimate how long it will actually take to reach my location in Singapore.

    No. That's Washington State, US.

    The Canada one comes from Burnaby, Canada. Someone posted it on the main thread for SteelCore.
