    I was wondering has anyone spotted the voyager size double over sized Legends class Optimus and co - packed with Minicon on ebay yet ?

    +++

    I also was wondering if anyone has seen a listing I seem to have lost on ebay it's a Jinbao listing that was very cheap as it also contained the accessory pack and claws etc.. but also listed in the optional items was a Junkion Blacksmith weapon kit

    Anyone seen that I've search all over on multiple country sites and can't find it anywhere.

    If anyone stumbles over it please let me know.

    There are some flash issues here and there. Some space issues in the legs but that seems to be because the pegs are ever so slightly longer than they should be. Some simple sanding should fix them. Two of my four had one thigh in yellow and the othe in purple, but the other two are the solid yelllow. I have those two taken apart & ready for painting once I get the paints.
    As for plastic quality, it's fine with we. Better than most dollar store figures. No graininess or oiliness or anything.
    I have one with a paint issue and he's one getting repainted later.
    All in all great, especially for dollar figures.

    If you open the hips/crotch with those 2 screws, you should be able to pop the legs right out at the hip connectors, then switch them (so they are facing forward rather than backward), and close the hips back up again by putting the screws back in. It should be very easy. You just need a mini-screwdriver with a cross-head. If you don't have one, you can usually find them at dollar stores. It's always a good tool for a TF collector to have around.

    The legs themselves don't need to be disassembled because everything on the legs seems to be assembled properly. You really just need to switch them so they're facing the right way on the hips (right now, the back is on the front.

    Does this mean that KO Sunstreaker has two pegs jutting out of his crotch?

    Just make sure that the screwdriver actually fits the screws. Not too big or small. Otherwise, you'll end up stripping the screws which will leave you with two messed up screw heads and without any way to remove them (that does not involve destroying the figure).

    Seriously, it's not a big deal. This is really basic stuff. Stop worrying. This is stuff a 9-year-old could do easily.

    Transformers are often put together with screws. This makes them REALLY easy to quickly disassemble to make minor fixes like this, and then put them back together, good as new.

    It's not like you're removing pins or rivets or disassembling complex ratchet joints or anything complicated. The only annoyance would be if the hips are -glued- in addition to connected with screws. That's unlikely, but it would just mean that the halves wouldn't come apart. It wouldn't hurt anything.

    But yeah, ask your dad if he has any mini-screwdrivers. Transformers almost always use a cross-nose screws, so it shouldn't be hard to find one to fit.

    also, it's just a good idea to have screwdrivers handy anyway. learning to work with your hands is an invaluable tool and screws are the most basic and fundamental part of that.

    I want an ultra sized upgraded version of the siege Megatron design! that fist block is a rather tired thing IMO, I need my Megatron to be able to not only dramatically point and facepalm, but also grab things.

    if that was fixed, I'd have a real hard time justifying having the old CW megatron instead of the new siege design.


    Also, there isn't a seeker style jet with a bumblebee colorscheme KO right? (breakaway does NOT count.)

    Awww boy these things are breaking my heart. I love the over all profiles and the jolly rancher colors...but the Jump Starter level transformations and sub-jumpstarter articulation keeps stopping me from pulling the trigger.

    @vvvTheONEvvv buy these suckers so I can stop agonizing!

    Remember that Soundwave tablet that came out a few years ago.

    These could be his Frenzy Rumble. Piledrivers as feet though. :)
