    The peg that holds the hand on my explorer is REALLY loose. The hand just ends up flopping around. Anyone else have the same problem or have a suggestion on how to fix?

    make sure the hand is pegged in all the way and you can use the bot heels to stabilize the hand if needed. there's not supposed to be any up/down articulation at the wrist. or at least there isn't on the left hand, same should apply on the right.

    Unless you modify Onslaught's transformation so that the missile pod kneecaps point outwards, that's not going to work, because that turret setup will interfere.

    I can't believe that ROTF Bruticus sets are selling for as much as $150 (including shipping) on eBay.

    That's the typical FansProject-inspired market surge, for ya.

    Still a better price than Rodimus, comparatively. He goes for about the same, and he's just one deluxe, not a deluxe and four basics.

    Although Rodimus has had more time to simmer, considering Protector was announced before we even caught wind of Crossfire 02.

    I got mine :) 
    Bruticus' new head; make Onslaught's backpack stick out on mine. I can't seem to fully close onslaughts cab (in robot mode) with it. Is that happening for anyone else or just me?

    That's normal. It'll stick out a little bit further, and a little bit higher than it used to.

    I cannot get my Bruticus head-piece to stay on the metal post. Is it because I am using the Energon Barricade instead of the ROTF Onslaught? I thought they were excatly the same, except the paint apps?

    Otherwise, I think the set is incredible! I would buy anything FP made...even if it was a brick with "Fans' Project" scribbled on it in crayon. I think the designs and quality of thier figs are top notch!

    theres a manner of snapping it on, the head. it took me a while to figure it out by looking at the instructions. its like u have to hold it in an angle and push till u hear a snap and the lil curve catches the metal rod. if you compare the attachment point its actually different from the default head. thats why it takes a lil bit. i can understand how u dont wanna force it and have it go snap and scream FU&* !. i was sweating the whole time when i was snapping it on.

    yeah, I forced it for awhile but let it go. I currently have it attached to the two holes in the back (that connect to the pegs on the arms), and it is just resting on that metal pin...hmmmm....
