    If you want a themed team for Nova Prime, get his Autotroopers (they're his Shattered Glass soldiers based on the Offroad mold). Shapeways also has custom Autotrooper heads available for the Prowl and Rook molds. I used 2 Offroads, 1 Prowl, and 1 Deadend so I could have some symmetry while keeping the theme.

    Have we gotten any recent updates about X-Mortis at all?

    I assume you're already done collecting info but I've got 2 Battle Cores waiting for some X-mortis love!

    I'd expect an update by July honestly, when the next TFcon hits. Last year we got new info on the first Primo kits and Beelzeboss' kits at that time.

    As long as it's still coming I'm happy. I'd honestly pay for a prototype if they never hit production.

    Guys, what do you hit the pin with when you want to knock it out? I did every step for the kit except removing the two pins bc I'm not sure what I should use to hit them out with? Appreciate any tips/suggestions ...

    You can buy an automatic center punch to do it but it's pretty easy just to use a small screw driver and a hammer as well. There is a piece included with the kit that you can put your figure on to help stabilize the figure when you hit out the pin. I'd suggest watching Em Go's SND Primo Vitalis upgrade video for help with the installation.

    The screwdriver included also is made perfectly for the pins, just hold it over the pin an wack at it with a hammer.

    So is this upgrade dead now with no news from TFCon? I hope not. I bought battle core prime a long time ago specifically for this.

    I doubt it's dead. Jon popped in awhile back and let us know that it is still a thing, and that he's waiting to have something to update us on, given the slow pace of producing this kit.

    I think it's probably fair to say that if it were nixed, he'd have already informed us, but there's a lot of interest in this upgrade, and everyone has these Primes waiting to be put to good use, so I'd say to anyone asking, just be patient and give it some more time, so we can have the best kit possible for this guy.

    I was pretty bummed out when TfCon had no news on this guy (felt like TFCon in general wasn't as exciting this year). I hope Jon can update us soon! The wait is killing me lol

    So true. I'm still hoping for a Thunderclash kit and those CW/Armada Megatron add-ons.

    Yeah I still have my prime for this project too. I will admit I have been a little concerned with no news. But I have backed kickstarter things with less news and they produced the product. So I am waiting patiently. (As much as someone who wants this upgrade bad can be patient I guess.)

    I too am anxiously waiting for any new updates about this project. Been quiet for a long time.

    Yep, still happening. With it having the wings, it presents a few different design and engineering challenges to the Optimus kit, but yes, I can confirm it's still happening. :D
