    I am well aware of this as I have all of them.

    We may or may not get Fracas or Nightstick. The fact that we got new mold versions of any of these characters is amazing in my opinion.

    Yeah. What I was thinking.

    Has anyone considered putting the Sweeps face on the Hasbro Scourge's head to match the colours a bit more. I've been doing that with some of my extra Titanmasters, and spare TR bodies.

    I just saw a review of Legends Hotrod,I hear you have to be careful plugging in the new clear chest for robot mode.

    Yes, someone else mentioned that, the clear plastic chest sounds like a mistake on this figure

    For those of you dense enough to not figure it out yet, this is not the thread to discuss the sexuality of LG pack in comics, whatever. That much should be I don't know...immediately obvious but some of you don't listen.

    Thread cleaned, back to the toys

    Is LG Hot Rod's entire chest made of translucent plastic or is it just that flame piece?

    Huh, interesting. I've pushed mine in, numerous times, with no issues..and its a tight fit too. I did make sure to press down directly above the tabs though. I've also popped it off and put in back on a couple times, swapping with the US chest trying to see which one I liked better. Felt pretty sturdy to me.

    Entirely clear. Not ideal, but the weird clear flame pattern is much nicer in hand than I expected.

    Hmm guess it's a compromise for the look as it does look great. Wish the flame was its own piece with the rest of the hood being opaque. Not surprised though. Glad to hear it seems sturdy.

    Has anyone tried mounting Kup or Hot Rod's Titan master on Blurr?

    All this talk of the Kiss Players stuff....I've seen the toys but never seen the comics. Are they online anywhere? I'm really curious now.

    Ended up just sticking with the default chest. I actually like the cut out Hasbro one better, but I just didn't feel like going through the effort to match the TT maroon paint, mask, and paint the Hasbro chest. Plus, if I swapped chests, I'd have to drill a hole somewhere on the TT one to mount the TM in vehicle mode, and it all just felt like a lot of work for the result I wanted.

    To be honest though, I expected to hate the TT chest, but in person, it was much less gigantic looking on his body.

    Never really realized how short and fat the new Hot Rod is - guess I'm sticking with the Classics ones!

    The short and fat one is the classics mold. Or did you mean the alt mode? There it's reversed.

    Yes, I should've specified alt-mode. Of course, now that I look at 'bot mode, it bothers me more there now! lol

    Perhaps I WILL get the new one for Hot Rod, save the Classics for FP Protector Armor Rodimus (I don't want Leader-sized!) or if I use a car mode...
    Ugh.
