    I think a mix of both will happen depending on the character. I just need Bruticus and I'm happy, also I will not say no to Railracer.

    Yes, I would love more weaponizers, that would be huge. It would be nice if they came in 2pk as well.

    I still want her to be Voyager, just an average-sized one the same height as the other Seekers rather than a hair taller than Optimus and Megatron.

    Not every word. CW was a low point in engineering, and the quality wasn't the best across the board either.

    So I’m just getting caught up with all this. You have to knock out the pins, then you can open up the legs to tighten the screws? How does the fix work exactly?

    You gotta knock out these pins 3FE1043D-5493-43C6-B1FB-6FF060BF1F12.jpeg After which you use that transformation panel to access these screws on the knees to take the joint out and swap it to the other thigh piece if that makes any sense FCD4B2AB-1C00-4686-9B5A-30F256ED6792.jpeg ^ this is what it should look like fixed, on the misassembled copies the little circle detail on the screwhole joint piece is mirrored as opposed to this image

    I have to say, the pins came out smooth as butter. I was expecting a bunch of hammering (hip pins were the troublesome spot) but 2-3 whacks and the pins came right out. Swapped all the pieces around and fantastic once fixed.

    I had to pop the right hip pin out because it was so loose I could jiggle him like a rag doll and it would swing freely back and forth. Heated up the outer C-shape plastic in Keurig water, pinched it tighter with my fingers, and then shocked it with cold water and it stayed. Had to force the swivel back in before putting the pin in and BOOM. Basically perfect, now.

    Shouldn't have had to at $70.00, but it is what it is at this point. *sigh*

    -_-...I forgot I had one of those. (SS Ironhide kit) I used a jeweler's screwdriver and a hammer. That might've been easier. Yup. Checks out.

    In Arcee's case I agree somewhat... I think the issue is trying to get the vehicle perfect... But it's not really a vehicle anyone cares about to begin with. Example: Beachcomber perfect bot mode, not so great but cohesive alt mode... That's what Arcee needs. A focus on the bot mode and get as close to her vehicle mode without making her wear the whole thing on her back or partsform. The vehicle should just be an approximation.

    you mean like the 1998 custom by Hironori Kobayashi where the back end of the vehicle was essentially legs?

    upload_2023-7-4_12-29-37.png

    the same guy designed T30 Arcee (and its similar disregard for the back end of the car mode) so i think that might be ground we've already tread

    He's in US ports and in a month or less he will be available by retailers (in this case Amazon and Pulse).

    It means he's now in a cargo shipment bound for the US.
    If he was in ports, JT probably would've said that and not Bill of Lading.

    Bill of lading shows he and wave 4 have been loaded for shipment across the sea.
