    That part on my Nosecone is so loose I was thinking about nail polishing it to stop his legs slipping when he's posed so it rather odd that that part is so tight it breaks on other peoples.

    As it stand now he's such a epic trek to get combined i'm likely going to leave him that way now.

    I really hope Maketoys keeps going with the Shattered Glass decos of these guys. I like those more than the originals outside of Strafe

    Yes definitely! It gives me a great reason to buy another awesome figure, and have one set in combined mode, while having the Shattered Glass set in individual robot modes. :D

    Agreed, it's an amazing set. Despite whatever flaws the MtCombiner sets may have, I'm totally in love with the series. I truly hope MakeToys isn't done with this line and we see other gestalts such as Bruticus and Superion.

    Hi guys! Wondering if anyone ever had an issue with Metalstorm's waist, and had to take the back assembly apart? I have the replacement pieces from Maketoys, but my issue isn't with the horizontal alignment of the waist, but rather the vertical. In other words, the ab-crunch joint is not aligned, and my Metalstorm tends to lean back too far, leaving a gap in his waist.

    I think I could fix the problem if I could completely take the figure's back apart. There are six screws in Metalstorm's back, but when I remove them, his back remains in place. I don't know if I would have to use some force and pry it apart?...I've never tried that on a figure before.

    Lastly, I reached out to Maketoys about the issue. They promptly replied within a couple days and said I could send $10 and they would send me a replacement part. I'm not entirely sure if they would just send me the horizontal waist piece or not.

    Any help that you fine folks can offer is very much appreciated! Thank you!

    Quick update. I found the problem, and solution, to my Metalstorm's vertical waist joint. Figured I'd post this in case anyone else ever has, or had, this issue.

    So, I was able to take the back assembly apart by applying a little force to separate the two pieces that make up the torso, and then remove the slider mechanism for Metalstorm's head. One half of the ab-crunch/waist ratchet joint is molded into the bottom of the slider mechanism, and the other is a separate piece.

    Thankfully, the replacement ratchet joint sent from Maketoys (or BBTS in my case), originally intended for the the horizontal waist joint, is actually the opposite (interlocking) piece from the vertical ratchet. In short, the teeth in my original ratchet piece are not aligned correctly to the slider joint. So all I have to do is use a micrometer to measure the diameter of the hole in the original piece, and drill a hole in the new piece. Easy as pie!
