    I swapped out the purple Perfect Effect hands and HFGs on the back of legs with black parts, does improve the overall look.

    So how does everyone who has this set display these gals, combined or separate? I've had them sitting in the box for over a week now and I can't decide. On want hand, it's nice to display a female combiner. On the other hand, it would also be nice to add a bunch of female Decepticons to my shelves. How are you guys doing it?

    I like to display in combined mode. Of course, there's the added benefit of actually playing with the thing when I want to display her separated into her components.. but that's a waste of tall shelf space :lol

    Like all my other full combiners she'll be combined. I thought about separating my second Victorion, but it's an issue of shelf space and storing more combiner parts. I do have some duplicate combiners for standalone displays though.

    Did anyone in the thread purchase Megatronia from Premium Collectables? If so, have you received it yet?

    No, but I never use that website because they take forever to send you anything unless you're part of the VIP service. So many people were complaining on the TCCA Facebook page that they had to ban posts asking about the site.

    I'm well aware of their current standing Lord DCast. The preorder for Megatronia was before their current state however, and was hoping to get feedback whether anyone on the forums were able to get a Takara Tomy Mall exclusive from them.

    Megatronia... None received yet

    As for other TakTomMall.... All UW and MP released until start of this year were from. Them, and in my hands within 2 weeks of release.... It's only 2017 that's had problems from them

    After looking thru all the images, I think I will try and buy this set. It will be my first non MP TF purchase. I did want to ask if anyone has discovered what legends bot looks best on the chest as an additional member of the team? As I love their look, but I cant help but think the chest area needs something...

    Outside of defaulting to the bike mold, I haven't found anything that works.

    From the thread so far, it seems the only real options are either groove, or rust dust or a mix/custom one. On the custom note, I wanted to ask. In the opinions of those of you that own the set already, what color would you say that the combiner needs more of on the chest? My main ideas so far were to repaint/mod a Legends Skywarp to add a touch more matching purple and black or to use a heavy repainted Rust dust custom repainted figure using the foot/head purple.

    Any color ideas/advice from people that own the set would be appreciated.

    Honestly there's no need for a breasticycle on this figure. The torso is painted well enough to work without it.

    I gave mine purple bra-nnons :lol

    Normally like this at rest, idea being something similar to Devastator's chest wings. One of these days I'll push out the pins and flip the cannons so the solid top is facing outwards. No need for them to be functional HFGs and it doesn't hurt to give the limbs extra guns in robot mode.

    The Skywarp legends mold idea is pretty good. I'd only change her to teal+black and into a Slipstream custom if I could.

    onc upon a time i digibashed a possible solution to the lack of chest minion.
    Harley.png

    obviously based on Harley Quinn, mainly because i wanted to keep the set's theme of Playing cards, and Harley's association with The Joker led me to this idea.
    her black fits the common colour of the set, and she adds some red that none of the others really have.

    if one is going to try this custom out themselves, i'd reccomend using groove as the base since his white will be easier to paint over than wreck gar orange.

    How are those even attached? I mean personally I don't care for using it on my figure, but it seems interesting.

    There's also Adventure Override as a possible figure to attach to Megatronia.
