    Yeah if the arms at least fit that's not terrible but it's probably not worth wasting money when I can't use most of the kit

    Just put an order in for this guy, he looks pretty good and I'm glad that they changed the part that's prone to breaking

    Just got this guy from ShowZ (9 days from ordered to received, regular shipping!), looks great! The face mask is too shiny and clean, but that's an easy fix. Haven't transformed him yet, does anyone know if those pegs sticking out sideways from his crotch are needed for alt mode? I don't like how they interfere with the thighs.

    I modded the articulated claw hand to let the cannon peg into it, I just transferred the peg from the other claw hand. Now he can grab the cannon with the articulated fingers.

    Anybody want the Transwarp Key or the extra shoulder pads?

    I'm not convinced they chose a crude warp key instead of a removable mask, but the straightened claws, more movie-like lower body, and other improvements are nice. I had a lot of fun modifying a cheap KO.

    I know I keep asking, but no one is answering, but what parts besides the head will the DNA work on this?

    Ok, placed my pre-order (?) from Showzstore. @Hoptimus was able to get theirs in 9 days but mine says pre-order. Has Showzstore not updated their product page?

    from experence from using the dk-49 parts don't put those on if you want to transform him. the front truck parts don't tab in all the way making a new gap. Only the left hand works from that kit. Would strongly recommend getting the official ss scourge or the bmb one for the dna parts to go on a scourge.

    I got mine today, and I love the changes they've made like the new arm and head, the remolded legs, and the backpack not being clear plastic painted over anymore. However, I am worried about the plastic quality. It feels like it won't last long. They've made the joints very tight to compensate, but that won't last forever. I guess we'll have to wait and see.

    I might try to put the DNA shoulders on it later, see if they fit. I'll post pics if they do.

    Are the joints screws or pins?

    A mix, just like the original.

    The Scourge I ordered from ShowZ shipped today, curious to compare him to the official one

    Okay, I tried dry-fitting the DK-49 hood sections to this guy's truck mode, and due to the pegs all being slightly different from the official, everything doesn't really fit. You can force it, but it immediately begins trying to disassemble itself. As a result, I'm not going to try to replace the shoulders; I already have the Yolopark figure if I want something movie accurate that doesn't transform.

    In addition, after only two transformations one of his thighs has become quite loose. I imagine it won't be long before more joints follow suit.

    Left claw fits by friction.

    I haven't tried the right arm.

    Legs parts don't fit, but they don't need to, because the new sculpting is already superior to the DNA kit.

    Butt part doesn't fit.

    Ab claw things don't fit.

    Head doesn't fit, but the one it comes with is already great. The only thing the DNA can do that it can't is remove the mask.
