the only probs i see...is that this hatch isn't transparent & green!

& that this leg joint, is only attached on one side + it tends to ride off the peg, when moving the legs, to transform him

Do these things transform or are they like a puzzle when going from robot to alt mode

Great idea for a thread! I have the recent waves complete, and I'm hunting for the KOs of the vintage sets (the originals are too expensive for me). I will contribute as soon as I'm able take pics.

Fort Max transforms (almost) completely. However, smaller kits require some part-forming to transform to their alt mode. Basically it's usually a mixture of trans & parts-forming.

Do the Seacons have a combined mode? If so can you post it?
