    I am going to get apeface but I'm getting snapdragon first. When I get snapdragon that will be my second kfc figure from kfc. My first was Simba and I love that figure.

    ibot owns the mic ^^. Just saying.

    ....

    It basically either ratcheted or not ratcheted. It is a simple adjustment, usually, to stop the a ratchet from lunging. In the case of many universals outer thigh ratchets, just tighten to add enough friction between the ratchet notch. If that doesn't do it after tightening , cut the spring. Finally you could always remove the first notch or two.

    I get some people don't outer thigh ratchets because of lunging to A stance. Some do like outer thigh ratcheted for the same reason any joint is ratcheted.
    Many companies still do outer thigh ratchets with some very large indents. I example of this was DX9's Mightron and Tyrant.

    I like the ratchet in. If one doesn't like it, it can modified easily. If the ratchet is left out, I can't add a ratchet.

    Examples where lack of an outer thigh ratchet caused problems was DX9's Astrotrain and many of the Fan Toys Dinobots (Scoria etc) come to mind.
    I hate lose joints.

    Just got KFC Apeface and Snapdragon today. Love them. Has the metal plate been discussed? I am assuming it is meant to give the headmaster a magnetic platform to stand on.

    Love my simba but had the issue with the gold chrome literally just wiping off his chest with my finger. I never did get replacements or help from kfc. They make some kickass looking figures and i DO love the ones I have, but better qc and responsiveness to customers would go a long way to making them a top tier company. Even chinese ebay sellers have better customer support, which is sad.

    I decided to keep the original face for this guy. I grew used to it since I had no affliction to these guys when I was a kid. I think it looks meaner. The toon face is cool, don't get me wrong, but it doesn't put fear into autobots like the other. :)

    It is a stand for the headmaster pilots, I believe. Magnets in their feet.
