    Yeah! My favorite configuration is one gun-half on the shoulder port, one on the forearm. Allows for decent posing, for Chaos to target two places at once while still having his sword-arm free... when I first saw this guy many moons ago, I thought the orange connectors looked a bit garish & overkill, but in-hand? Too much fun to ditch.

    Amd098, just paint 'em black if you don't like the look, that'll help hide 'em better yet still keep 'em available if you wanna change up the configuration.

    Distribution on this was hot shit.

    For sale section of various forums and good luck given that you didn't define "good prices"

    Yup. Although I'm in the UK which would probably add a bit to the P&P. (Also I'm still looking for where I put the instructions.)

    Yeah, this figure is really awesome! Love The Fallen mode. Just wish there was a way to get the tank forms to combine.

    As my first 3rd party figure, I am very impressed.

    Does he have to partsform to change from vehicle to robot? I don't mind some partsforming, but if it's the kind where you have to disassemble the body to turn it into a vehicle, meh. Eyeing the reissue for a Fallen figure, though

    I just got this. I love the way it looks, I hate the issues it has though. The head BARELY stays on. it is by far the loosest head of any toy I've ever had. I'm not talking about a loose ball joint swivel, this thing literally will come entirely off if you blow on it. Also, the orange joints are quite loose, if you pose it and aren't super careful, they come off.

    I guess it was an early try in maketoys product history, so that's forgiveable. I do like the way it looks very much, but it's so fragile, not masterpiece quality at all.

    I do have the later offerings from maketoys. Utopia is great for the most part, a couple of weird QC issues. I just got their visualizers, which I think are brilliant. A little complex maybe, but pretty amazing. So i have complaints on an old model, but they sure looked like they've fixed things since and are showing great signs of improvement along the way.

    Are you sure the balljoint is properly seated? Because that's not ever a problem I've had with mine.

    My only real complaint with the figure is that they should have riveted the cube joints in like with the real Powercore Combiners. The basic screw connections want to keep coming undone, especially the ones in his shoulders, making the arms super floppy. I should get some thread locker for him the next time I dig him out.

    Big Bad Toy Store has gotten more of the figure in. I don't know how many there are, so you'll want to act fast if you missed this guy the first time around.

    Mine almost having same problem as yours. The fragile location I encounter are the tank track cover and accidentally break in the mid when I insert the sword on the hand.

    Was getting ready to sell mine, went to combine the sword for the first time to take some pics, and the orange blade just snapped from the hilt on one side.....

    The only issue I had on mine was that the sword handle fits a little too tight on his hands, so I had to shave it a little for fear of it breaking.

    Design-wise, my only complaint is that while it has a lot of articulation points overall, some of it is limited in ways that could've been avoidable.

    Other than that it's still a kickass figure and an excellent fallen.
