    Can we get a shot of the shoulder mounted guns? You forgot towards the end there.

    I really do like the size and the combined mode for these guys, but the individual robot modes are pretty substandard for $100 and remind me of Armada/Energon/Cybertron in a bad way.

    Also: check back on your channel for all 4 limbs? This week? Peaugh you devil you.

    WTF TF-C/TF Source somehow getting you the last two early?! OR letting you review some prototypes?!

    AWESOME

    EDIT:
    Or are you getting your 2nd Ex-Graver/Structors in . . .

    I stopped buying these guys when Heavylabor's issues started being reported and sold off my Exgraver, but damn this review is really making me regret that decision. Ah well, hopefully HL's issues will be fixed in later versions so I can finally feel safe owning this set.

    Is it possible to get the crane out of the way by sliding it down onto his back?

    Have you done the 'fix' on Heavy Labor's leg joints? I just wonder how he's holding up to being connected...

    Awesome figure one of the best transformer(s) ever made period imho. Love Dr. Crank and Structor both my favs so far

    @Robogeek28 You should re-purchase again it really is something not to be missed by any transformer collector!

    Good review Peaugh

    P.S. I wish my torso connected as easy as yours :p .

    Great review.

    If I wasn't saving up for Hot Toys Batman figures I would be all over these guys.

    Try pushing harder...it takes a bit, at least on mine, to get them to connect but once the two halves snap together, it's really secure

    thanks for the review, good as always.

    Those long purple pieces at the rear of the crane are intended to be used with the crane once the string has been attached.

    Those long purple pieces hold that small purple piece in place so your crane can hold cargo. (it prevents the string from spooling out)
