    Quick question. How hard is installation?

    I decided to drop both kits in my POL. As soon as a payment I'm waiting on goes through, gonna grab UW Ruination (who I hope also gets a kit in his colors) and ship. The other day was my first experience with a more intricate add-on kit (X2's set for LG Magnus), and I was pleased with how painless adding it was. Is this kit similarly easy to work with?

    The breakage causes the leg to be a little bit misaligned, but if you take your time to fix it, it would eventually become straight.

    This kit isn't super easy to install unless you're experienced.

    Figured as much. Mostly involves unscrewing and replacing parts, yeah?

    I might, but don't you also need the UW hip colours too?

    I'm not sure which pieces you are referring to, could you share a pic? I haven't been following this set too closely for awhile but like the thicker legs on onslaught in combined mode

    Oof, yeah, I decided against the kits. The idea of potentially damaging expensive Japanese versions of toys that are hard to get now scares me. Went with UW Ruination and Megatronia instead, too scared to do these kits.

    I don't have UW Onslaught with me right now, but the wonky waist ratchets that make him lean forward and back.

    Anyone willing to sell just the chest pieces? Or perhaps the chest and head?

    Which version? I've been looking to buy just the hands/feet off someone so maybe we could just split a set since it seems you want everything else.

    Have anyone else seen other video reviews of the tdw set? I need to occupy my time while waiting for it to arrive.

    So I'm glad to have gotten this set, if nothing for hte stronger knees on Onslaught, but man, those instructions are just plain terrible! It took me a while to figure out how to do the installation for the knees. The transformation for alt-mode isn't the best, either.

    But still, it's a nice upgrade. I was thinking of doing the C+ for Defensor, but given how that appears to be more partsforming and that isn't the case here, I might just do with this set for him. It's just that the combiner mode head feels like it shouldn't have a cigar.
