    Look at all of the posts several pages before yours...

    I'm not sure if the neck joints are the same, but there's always this option...

    Oh that is nice! For me though, I don't mind the Starscream head, since this is my first figure with that Takara Ghost Starscream headsculpt. I used that oversized KO R Blade for a custom, otherwise that would have been the most accurate update :)

    Thankfully you really have to squint to see Starscream in the head.

    And because I use the previous Timelines Punch/Counterpunch, I turned the new one into Slicer.

    Does Toxie have the updated hip ratches like Battle Core and the Motormaster re-release?

    He did, still threw in the Nonnef ones anyway. He also still follows the trend of every release by having the lower thighs attached backwards on the knee as well.

    I got my figures and I have to say I am quite impressed with SG Starscream and the way they designed him. Although my Toxitron seems a bit loose in the cab and can't be closed tightly is that a common issue on him?

    If you are talking about the back half, that's due the Menasor chest panels not having enough clearance for the Super Prime head because of the molded detail on the inside of them.

    I just noticed on Toxitron that the two posts that were meant to hold Legends Blackjack and Rodimus are wider. Meaning those figures actually now can fit tightly and not flop off right away when the figure is in Wreckage torso mode.

    I'm typically pretty pleased with club and Botcon figures but the bonus is such a waste of everyone's time. Sure, it's a decent toy. It also could have been any number of club characters we don't already have too. I can name at least five off the top of my head. Why redo an already great figure in a much less impressive toy? The first version is great. This is redundant and disappointing. Especially that... I don't know what's going on with that face. At least I finally got a Toxitron that I think is great in one of my favorite molds from recent years.

    What characters do you need to make the combiner. It actually looks pretty cool, obviously Toxitron and Counterpunch but who else is there

    Impactor, Bluestreak, and Fractyl. Or Shattered Glass Starscream, who is the mystery figure.

    The "intended" Wreckage is Impactor, Counterpunch, Bluestreak and Fractyl.

    However the fiction also has a version of Wreckage where Offroad and Alpha Bravo replace Impactor and Bluestreak (handy if you didn't pick up 4.0)

    I'm selling mine. PM me.

    same. And as Pete said, they'll show off concepts and "would have beens" at the con and I'm sure 3 or 4 of them will be things I'd much rather have. For me, and this makes me sad to say, this figure is the club ending with a whimper.

    Now c'mon lol! Look at the TFSS 5.0 as a whole. That is a far cry from whimper. It'll be explained at the convention on June 24th why it ended up as Starscream. That said, still, with that mold and the success of Shattered Glass, this was the best option available given the way things worked out and it really is a great looking toy for sure.
