    I'm extremely tempted by the ROTF Superion boxset, and the associated add-on kit.

    But I remember playing around with the Energon set & was very unsatisfied with Superion's torso- specifically, how the nosecone from the one Deluxe figure couldn't be pegged in securely.


    Has that been fixed at all? Or can it be properly modified?

    Properly transformed, that peg is superfluous. As long as Stormjet/Silverbolt's "hip panels" are properly unfolded within the combiner torso (IIRC, on Stormjet, they're on the wrong sides. They're fine on Silverbolt, though), they form a framework that can comfortably support the hips. The tiny nosecone peg is thusly not much of an issue.

    I haven't heard any news of anything being fixed, or that piece being in bad shape, so that might mean it fits securely now, or nobody's announced it yet.

    It doesn't fit securely at all, but as has been said, it's not really a vital part of the transformation.

    Maybe the usual super-glue method to tighten the join?
