Btw, is it normal that Kingzilla came with a batterie but not Kingorilla?
I would buy replacement thigh ratchets for Kingzilla
Not that i am aware of cause i didn't get a battery with my kingzilla. I haven't bought the brother of the zilla yet. So I'm not sure on batteries for him
This guy is a beast, literally. Better than Apeface imo but oddly ratchets in places he doesn't need them as it hinders articulation. Took them out of outward thigh movement so he can now stand more naturally and also took them out of the thigh swivel. Love the ab crunch. Don't like the ankle tilt ratchets....you can't get a modest tilt. It's either straight or extreme, so need to figure out how to open the feet and get them out. Painting is nearly done. Just waiting for the head to dry @Turnman :
Gone Headmasters series/toy style instead of rebirth as I prefer the white titties. Gonna be the first figure to get the toon accurate Decepticon logos when they arrive
Moar pics when he's done with the other Headmasters.
YES, white titties for the win!!! (Well, technically those would be white underboobs; the nipples are above after all )
Don't forget to show off the other two modes when you are done!
That first line sounded less than decent
Cartoon decals to finish off. Will be replacing all third parties decals too. Now FT...bring me Mindwipe....
I think I read that you removed the outward hip ratchets on these two? How are they holding up? I did it with Ditka so I might try with these as well.
Totally agree that Kingzilla is arguably better than Kingorilla, however I think the two should really come as a pair. They look great together.
Just from Snapdragon and it's working well. He can hold his weight fine in poses and look more natural stood up so they ain't going back in!
Really tempted to get this guy.
Yeah, the ratchets on this guy are really odd. I don’t like them at all. I will likely remove the hip ratchets as well and like you, want to figure out how to remove the ankle ratchets. The ones on Apeface are much better in that regard.
I keep my Horrorcons in quite wide action poses, by no means I am going to remove any of the ratchet joints of this guys! Besides, I love ratchets!
Wanted Kingzilla in the worst way until I saw the silly silver paint scheme. Tiger’s versions make me hate KFC even more for their ridiculous dicision. Absolute perfection.
There is still hope for a repaint if the demand is there...
I personally don't care too much, but I would definitely pick up white versions of the characters!
Same feeling and TigerBlade's paint jobs didn't help at all but I finally caved today. With the ebay flash sale, I feel like I justified the purchase a bit more that way but I'm still torn on whether to do the same on Kingorilla or not.
Did a little investigating and it looks like the “spring” part of the ratchet mechanism is molded into the bottom of the foot. There is a toothed cylinder that the circled part engages with. It doesn’t look like the foot will be easy to disassemble without removing the toe pivot pins. However if you want the ratchet removal to be permanent, simply cutting out the plastic “spring” from the bottom of the foot with a knife will deactivate the ratchet.
I only have Zilla and Eligos but now I desperately want all of those.
I wish they would re release these in the Japanese toon colors. I don't have these guys but didn't like the colors of the first version.
