    don't buy from that guy. I got an Arcee from him that was in many pieces when it got here, then more parts fell off her. he'd refund the money, but I have to pay shipping. I fixed her myself, just a warning.

    I still Wheelie and Cyclonus. I'm lovin' Powerglide, and Ironhide ( and most likely Ratchet too ) seem to be shaping up nicely.

    Really?So he just sends you the unpainted kit?He should probably say that in the auction then.That is a pretty sweet arcee Frenzy Rumble it would look even better if it had one of your paint jobs on it and conture pins in the head instead of those bulbous screws.

    Yah, I have a anime Cyclonus, and if you do anything other than look at it, it falls apart. However, I will say that the engineering behind it is brilliant!

    I'd bid on this if the starting bid wasn't insane.

    I wonder if you could just apply some super glue to the screws before you screw them in if it would make it any better?What is the issue that makes yours fall apart?

    Where/how do you get an Arcee like that? Nothing came up on ebay. What's the price? (I've seen his stuff before, but never came across that Arcee)

    Backstop: Yah, they are pretty bad. Especially for the $285 I paid for it when they first came out. If it was around $100 I could understand. However, the transformation is awesome, and it looks pretty good in both modes, if you manage to prop everything up ok.

    Hybrid Prime: It's mostly the joints. It uses a lot of recast Master Grade Gundam connections (the rubbery gray plastic joints). But since they are cast in hard plastic, they don't "stick" quite as well. I was going to go thru and replace them all, but I didn't have enough extras. Also the knees are pieces that are superglued on the legs. I tried three different superglues and they all fell off. I think there is some mold release on it or something that is preventing the glue from holding.

    I got the wheelie and he transforms fine, though I don't transform him much at all as I keep him in an acrylic case.

    I agree, they all have brilliant engineering, though I would love to see the Arcee with more paint detailing than just the pink, to bring out more of the Alt mode.
