    Your poses are unbelievable man.

    Me Slag so pissed off, me face turn black?

    Thanks for the compliment @pilot00 !!

    Posing can be quite the challenge. Especially with balance and floppy joints.

    It always scary to do wrestling poses (body slams, suplexes, grappling, etc)... but I am compelled to get my ounce of energon out of each of these figures.

    While I understand the "set it and forget it" perspective and mind set... it's not really for me. I would probably change my hobby and become a statue collector. There are some pretty amazing statues out there.

    It is sad to learn about your Rumble. That definitely sucks.

    In the event it is of any assistance, and you have a spare $30.00 USD... here's a link to a KO MP Rumble & Jaguar set.

    https://www.amazon.com/Transformer-Masterpiece-Ravage-Rumble-Version/dp/B079Y7134D

    Unless you were referring to Frenzy... he and Buzzaw are on sale for $25.00 USD. Again... I am assuming these are KOs.. but a relatively affordable replacement for a broken Takara cassette.

    https://www.amazon.com/Transformer-...coding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=ZXJ95RBRE258M4SSN5TQ

    Unless you meant those MMC cassettes with the motorized pile-drivers. In that case, I can offer no links to affordable retail listings and you have my deepest condolences.

    I am too old and senile to keep Rumble and Frenzy straight. So is Takara.

    Pin connections in these MP/3P figures definitely keep me awake at night. In my experience, plastic and vinyl have more flex tolerance than metal pins.

    I am always so scared when transforming these figures or in the case of Constructor, also combining them, that something is going to snap. Im starting to understand the folks who have two of each.

    Sadly, few of us (including myself) have the budget for such luxuries. Owning one of each is expensive and luxurious enough... and I still don't have the room.

    With so many 3D printers out there, I wonder if anyone has started deconstructing these figures to make spare parts for the community?! I am quite sure that many within the TFW2005 community would pay a reasonable price to be able to fix a broken figure.

    Mine are KOs as well. And I was refering Rumble as the blue one :p 

    I contacted the seller, asking if he can kindly replace it, if he cant oh well, Ill buy one of these sets. But regardless, I am going to try to remove that pin and try to recast the joint. Maybe if I can fix him, he can be repainted into something.

    But I really hate pins. Hate them to death. Why cant they have screws in place :(
