Feet become stands for the alt modes. I'm not sure if the hands do anything.

Well, I ordered the first one. Though with what I read earlier, what kind of lubricant should I apply to the hip ratchets?

I disagree - it seems eminently sensible, from an engineering perspective, to utilize a near-identical transformation scheme for the two arm members and the two leg members. If TFC were offering straight repaints or only mild retools, I would certainly think differently; from appearances however, it seems they have completely retooled each figure down to the smallest detail.

Do we seriously need to go through this ratchet lubing thing again? That's ridiculous if true.

For them, absolutely. For me dishing out $100 a figure...feels like I'm getting a bit short changed. Want to impress me? Make them look similar in form, but give them both original transformations...otherwise pass your short-cuts on to me in price.

Agreed. That sceech of death in the Chinese guy's video is absolutely terrifying. I didn't feel the need to re-lube Heavy Labor, so I never bought any, but I may need to get some for Phantom. That shit is scary and completely ridiculous.

What's this mentioning about lube? Sorry haven't been following the entire thread. Does that mean we already need to start fixing after 1 member release?

I like the limb bots, but the combined form is just too stout and bulky for superion, became and easy pass, unless someone makes a new not-silverbolt to take over the torso in a more accurate physic
