    Back wit another one. This was a way to keep hasbro original head as the upgrade was to small. Also a look at KING POSEIDON TRIDENT.

    Can you show pictures of how the combiner port is attached inside the chest shield? I can't figure out how you did it.

    Here's a better look at the port. It's just glued. There is little parts you have to cut or file downto make it fit flush. IMG_20200413_184037291.jpg

    Looks like it's glued to that top panel, right? That's gotta be some really strong glue to hold it in and be able to plug it in and out like that.

    Correct glued to the top and the chest plate is light.

    The Dreamwave add on kit.


    I just mean that the glue would have to be really strong, with how tight a combiner port fits into the chest.

    Also, I don't know why you say the add on has a "lil ass head". It's the same size as Hasbro's head.

    Thought I would prefer the Hasbro head since I fixed the colors on that one.

    I call it small cause when added the extra height it makes the head look small. Giving that they added a neck makes it look odd to me that's my opinion. Hasbro head has more mass Plus the upgrade isn't even durable you can easily pop off and break the antennas.

    You can see the two heads are the same size side by side and when you overlap them over each other in Photoshop. The only thing that's bigger on the Hasbro version is the antenna.

    It is not a debate the hasbro fills out more than the upgrade. Do you I'm not going back and forth to each it's own:)  have a nice day.

    You're right, it's not a debate. Math and numbers don't lie, my dude.

    Height: (Hasbro = .25 inches taller w/ ears)
    Hasbro
    1 inch
    1.5 inches (ears)

    3P
    1 inch
    1.25 (ears)

    Side width: (Hasbro = almost .5 inches wider)
    Hasbro
    0.9

    3P:
    .5

    Front width: (3P = about .15 inches wider)
    Hasbro:
    0.75

    3P:
    0.9



    Hasbro's is about the same size from top to bottom, only being a bit taller after including the antenna. Hasbro's is a tiny bit wider from side to side, but shallower from front to back. Hardly worth the "lil ass head" comments. We're not dealing with a Botcon figure head, those were definitely much smaller than they should have been.

    I don't even prefer the 3P head, but let's not go around stating clearly wrong things.

    I think you're kind of making a big deal out of nothing. He was saying that since the upgrade kit makes the torso quite a bit larger/taller and overall makes the combined form bigger, the head looks smaller proportionately. So he did this mod to make it possible to use the new chest shield with the original torso transformation.
