    Well, I finally got my TFC Exgraver in. I'm really not excited about this figure for its' individual modes. Alt mode is nice enough, but I don't really care for the robot mode. I just wanted to be sure the figures will be up to par quality wise. I'm very happy with the quality of the figure.

    Moving on...

    The first thing I did when I got this in was to put him in arm mode, and do some comparisons.

    Damn he is going to be big!

    Then I noticed this!

    That's not even a 90 degree bend! Being the idiot that I am I immediately set out to see what I can swap on my brand new $90 figure! Turns out the fix is pretty easy.

    You now have 90+ degrees of elbow bend!

    BE WARNED doing this flips he treads upside down so it no longer rolls in alt mode.

    If this has been covered somewhere else, MY BAD! I read through 12 pages of reviews and didn't see this mentioned.

    All in all I can't wait for the rest of this set, it is going to be very imposing! Can't wait for the make-toy version too. So much Devvy!

    I'm mostly about the individual cons... Combining is cool but I'd prefer 6 green/purple cons on my classics shelf rather than one giant(or Hercules as I suppose is more appropriate)

    Neat. Now, does it affect his bot mode at all?

    You'll have to swivel his legs around so that the screws and hollow areas are on the outside for his knees to bend in the right direction.
