    I had DS-02 Arrive earlier today, and already I've had a part break. The ratchet inside the left arm just sheared itself off when I was transforming it. I've contacted ShowZ about it, but man this sucks.

    EDIT: I also had the little railing piece snap off after plugging it in, forgot to mention that.

    The question then is why Hasbro used the wrong vehicle for Studio Series Scrapmetal. It's not like they'd have been unable to get the trademark á la Dino, so I simply took it to mean he was retconned like Skipjack and Rampage.

    Ouch that is a dead shoulder if I've ever seen one. Thankfully the broken parts seem to be isolated in that one area so getting some replacements should do the trick.

    Yeah, thankfully some replacement bits should let me fix it, but man does it suck.

    I have also 1 loose Wheel on my Overload
    But it is one of the wheels where I can not find / reach the Screw that is holding it.

    Do not know how to fix this.

    I can only advice to tighten ALL Wheels
    on every Figure that is loose.

    I fixed all Wheels on Mixmaster, Long Haul
    and Overload - all Screws that are visible can be tightened or replaced with a better / bigger Screw

    Could someone take a picture of the hole on Long Haul that Overload plugs into? I don't have Long Haul yet and I can't find the hole in any videos or pictures.

    The "hole" is created by the robot mode feet; the back of both feet have half of the combiner peg hole. During transformation you fold the feet up into Long Haul's legs and press them together, forming the complete combiner peg hole.

    You can see this done in Jobby's review, here.

    I caved and ordered pranoider/bomber from Showz just now. Hasbro ain’t giving me my movieverse fix and they just look so weird and interesting!

    I know this is the Devs thread but can someone point me to the Studio Skids/Mudflap they're doing?

    Its non-transforming pvc figures coming with the last member of this combiner. No, reveal outside of announcing them.

    As soon as I saw Split released I caved and pre-ordered all of these bots. I’ve had them sitting idly on my shelf for months but decided to finally combine them. I can’t believe how big this thing is! Little bit nervous posing the leg without the new joint for Overload, but so far I’m thrilled. (BA Optimus making a quick cameo)

    For those of you who own more than one figure in this set: which one is your favorite so far?

    Also, if anyone in the US is thinking of selling any of the components they’ve acquired so far, please PM me.

    Personally, it’s a toss up between Long Haul and Scavenger for me, though I’m really excited for Skipjack. Long Haul is a really appealing looking figure, just the right amount of paint and bulkiness. Scavenger is a simple transformation but also very satisfying.

    I agree, of the ones we have so far I like Split best (based on looks, he is a nightmare to transform). I actually like Hasbro's Scavanger a little better and am disappointed that the OSKO we all expected is looking pretty iffy at this point. Excited about all the remaining ones though and wouldn't be shocked if one or more of them nudge Split out of my favorite spot.

    Definitely Scavenger, likely to be challenged by Skipjack/Rampage

    Out of the two I have, Overload is definitely my favourite. I'll probably end up revising that opinion once I get replacement parts for Scavenger tho, or whenever Hightower and Buckethead arrive.

    Looking iffy how so?

    When I ever I go in that thread they all seem convinced that not only is the next one way overdue (and I’d agree), but they seem to think that particular company has moved on to other projects and they wonder if they actually intend to finish.

    I have no solid info. But a lot of people in that thread are very pessimistic.
