    I am a moron. I have all three American versions of Build King and I can't figure out how to Transform Grimlock (Build Hurricane) for the standard Build King configuration where he is on the back. The American directions are just beyond me.

    Does anyone have photos of what he shoud look like and photos of the Japaneses directions? Thanks!

    Don't feel alone man Im also having wierd problems with the same one. I also have Buildking and Yellow Lanfill and did'nt have this problem with those for some reason.
    Not sure if we're having the same problems but here I go lol


    I got this so far but did'nt mess with any misc parts

    I have Grimlock set up like this and it fit's but something feels wierd. The 2 pegs fit along with the main rotating peg

    Grimlocks arm area gets in the way and can only have it rotated a certain way, but then this peg thing gets in the way for Devastators head to go all the way down

    But It's the only way I can get Grimlock body to stay on.
    Can't remember if Buildking has that same pegs (too lazy too dig him out) but I don't remember going through so much trouble to combine him in all forms.

    The other forms for Universe Devastator are pretty easy, but this one, agh!

    Spread/Unfold the panels that form Scavenger's pelvis so Devastator's shoulders are wider. Then the connector will have a gap to slide into so the peg is level with the hole on Bonecrusher's back.

    With that I think you maybe have to get Scavenger's forearms out of the way of Devastator's head. Not sure of the official method but I have Scavenger's head sticking out the back a bit with the shoulders rotated and his folded-up forearms on top.

    I am still torn on whether or not to get these. I have the yellow and original already. Also I pretend that the yellow one is the G2 constructicons anyway. These are also 16.99. However they do look pretty awesome.

    Stupid cool looking repaints of what the first set should have been!

    True, but seeing as how I picked up the yellow WM set on clearance for only $7, I much more regret paying $40 and change for the originals. Getting what's by far the best of the three for under $40 was a no-brainer..now to get rid of the original Skittles version at a loss... :redface2:

    I prefer a different combination. Since G1 Devastator was anything but symetrical, having similar bots for both legs looks silly. I prefer this combination for him:

    Now to pick up the Devastator colored ones....

    AHHH!
    I missed this mould in RiD, and because I live in Canada, I am paying for it, cause you can't get the universe one up here. Man, I hate exclusives.
