    You'll need a 2nd house if you want all combiners that big....
    Or live in a matching scaled Metroplex....

    Hahaha. Admittedly, that is pretty cool.

    However I hate the idea of space magic/80's magic of mass shifting. It is beyond silly to even want or imagine something like that with plastic toys.

    Sum of all parts + a little help = combined mode form.

    Still though. Pretty neat!

    Looks like I need to pick up some lubrication for when mines arrives,so far Im reading that all QCs are gone only problem is tight joints need to prepare myself.

    What type of lubricant are you using?

    It's due in any day now, is what I heard. Could be today.

    I typically monitor two places to see when something arrives there:

    New Arrivals at The Chosen Prime
    and
    The Chosen Prime

    So two right arms on a figure is a tightness issue? Lol :) 

    ~80wt silicon gear oil.

    Heck, even the fairly recent Transformers: Devastation had huge mass shifting. Just check out the bus in that picture. I especially love the mass shifting down. There were times combiners looked gargantuan and others almost looked like MP scale mixed with Combiner Wars sized combiners. Insane.

    Could it be that since the leg isn't seated in all the way that is the reason for the tightness? Or did you just attempt to slide the arm off the peg?

    I got my TCP invoice yesterday, and in my experience that only happens when they have things in hand.

    That is a good game by the way. Pretty darn decent for a TF game.

    And yeah. I love @G.I.EDDIE's work (do you do actual like pen/paper artwork in real life too, Eddie?) and it is an insanely awesome thing he made.

    Those guys are just way too large for my personal liking though.

    I use Tamiya Cera-grease HG, it's safe on plastics and is superb as a grease.

    Lol maybe but no I was just referring to the super tight joints on the V2.

    Will try that oil though.

    Thank you!;)

    I hate the mass shifting excuse too. Very much so. I don't need all my robots to be the same heights nor do I need them to be what the toon depicted. Personally, I want them to be scaled correctly in alt mode and then the robots height is what it is based on that. "But what about Megatron, or Soundwave or Insecticons?!". Whelp, TT/Hasbro shouldn't have picked ridiculous alt modes. :lol 

    So yeah, I love JOEs and the 1:18th scale. So I made a Devastator that fit 1:18th (NOT meant to fit MP) and am DELIGHTED that TFs are being produced in my preferred scale.

    That is a good game. The art is beautiful. The TMNT game done in that same heavily shaded style is equally as good.

    As for me, nah, not anymore. I used to when I was younger, but never anything "amazing". I much prefer hands on art and the engineering of it. I grew up with a carpenter/woodworking father.

    Waiting on the "get back on subject" police. :D

    Hey now start talking about....

    Man, Devastation is a good game. Such a good game.

    And I'm thankful that pen and paper and hands on work is still a part of the job.

    I mean TW, parts, um, toy based, and all that.

    Didn't the V1 green have replacement shoulder pieces for one or two figures? I think I recall that too.

    Yeah, I meant which figure came with those parts? I'm asking cause I'm selling this and want to put the replacement parts with the right figure that came with it.
    Was it Hook, he seems to have a blank empty square.
