    Hahaha I'm personally waiting for a fixed shoulder one. I'm too lazy to do the fix. I can wait it out.

    Looks like Core Soundwave has hit the bay area, which is great! I'm wondering if anyone has seen him specifically around the Fremont area? (I just got back from out of town and haven't had a chance to hunt)

    Got these today. VERY pleased with them Hasbro is stepping up their game on the Retro Figures. The Articulation is amazing in a 4" Figure. So hope this line goes Mass Retail next year for the ARAH 40th!

    Will Brickseek or Popfindr work reliably on those? My WMs are horrible for stock on SW and GIJ.

    91% Isopropyl Alcohol with a Qtip and cloth. Using Household Cleaning Cloths to clean off the Residue this leaves.

    Pretty good, no Complaints. The Right hand even has a Triger Finger you can put in the Gun's Triger

    That’s great. The latter portion of the 50th (?) line has very weak plastic. Destro could barely hold his own weight. Glad that’s being corrected.

    I may want Skelegod, but not in a rush to get it. Saw scalpers on social media hoarding them though. Also masterverse battle cat.

    I know it's a long shot but if anyone in CA finds a Studio Series #29 Sideswipe (apparently some Walmarts are restocking that wave) and is willing to ship it to me in Michigan I promise to pay you for your troubles.

    Send me a PM and we can discuss. :thumb  Thanks!

    I've never used a soldering iron for that purpose - why does heating up the pin help?

    I may be able to get my hands on one but I have to doublecheck. I'll pm you if I can get one.
