    I don't have much experience with TW figures but for Constructor it seems unfortunately fairly common on v1 and now v2 to have assembly and tolerance defects.

    Is there anything there he could have loosened to make that head spin without breaking? It doesn't appear so at a glance but would be good to know. Thanks.

    Yeah, but it's a pain in the butt. Burden's head snaps together with the seam on the side of the face where you can't see it. Once carefully prying it apart, with something plastic of course, you grab on to the neck piece with flat pliers and gently rotate it back and forth until it starts moving freely.

    I'll be honest, it's nearly midnight here, and I don't want to take Constructor apart right now, but I'll try to get some pics of how the head splits tomorrow.

    And to be honest, with V1 there were plenty more issues than what we're seeing right now.

    Can you still get a makeshift combined leg out of him? Even with only one arm, you might be able to connect the thighs and get it to hold with the combination of the outside plate and the slot.

    Hoping you can squeeze a little combined fun out of him while you wait.

    In my head this is the proper combiner scale. I figure they mass shift up in size and this is the perfect Masterpiece scale combiner. I am thankful they will never get this big.

    If it can sit comfortably on your toilet, it might be a bit too big? :D

    Imagine if all combiners got to be this size. I could only imagine waking up in the middle of the night seeing these giant silhouettes standing there, watching. Then red eyes light up.....

    I have opened burden head (split his helmet and remove the face ). When the neck part broke. I spin the neck (not the head).

    After it broke, i tried to knock out the pieces on his based. It can't be knocked down until i drilled some of the materials.

    So the pin and the base hole is really really tight.

    Other thing is burden left elbow tight as well. From below picture you can see the mushpeg too big. It can't be turned as well until i put some lubricant. If you found tight please loosen the screw or try put some lubricant

    Other than that i have transform to alt and combine with no problem. Impressed with how solid the combine mode

    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.

    Nah, that was just a screen grab. I have no discernible talents of any kind
