    I don't know if it's a half-common thing, but it's been noted before, so it's not something limited to your own toy. You just happened to draw one of the 'bad' batch is all (kind of like how it went with Brawl where half the peoples' waists were perfectly fine and half were not)

    Yeah, just bad luck with QC. I've got all 3 versions of the mold and QC-wise, each one has been progressively an improvement over the previous release.

    Just tighten it. No need to buy another one and risk facing the same issue over and over. =)

    Sometimes eBay seller jack up the prices on items they're temporarily out of stock on or it's a holiday like Chinese New Year. They don't want their listings to disappear and lose all their watchers, but they dont want to run the risk of someone buying something they dont have/can't ship.

    I've come across listings where the page specifically states that the seller is out of town and won't be able to ship anything until they return... wonder why they can't just do that. Jacking up prices(even if it's fake) seems like a GOOD way to lose watchers, but that's me.

    Either way, I got the two sets I bought from newday2015, so if I need more I'll just look for another seller :lol 

    Just search "Simple Version Perfect Combiner"

    Got a part swapped uw Scattershot for cheap on eBay. Swapped the chests onto my current wip. Head is temporary unless I decide to paint it and his abs will be white. Have to paint the combiner port covers all white too.
    Bot mode will get some white, light blue, and red in a few spots. Have to swap out the hips also so the white matches.

    Not sure if I can. Its like the ratchet is to small. Nothing clicks or any kind of friction. Going to have to stick some paper or something to make it stick. Should be able to hide anything I may use.....and it worked. It was the bottom hinge on his neck,the one with the pin holding it.

    I finally cleared off my coffee table so that I can get all of my CW/UW together. Just figures with combined modes, so no Ultra Magnus, Leader Jets or extraneous Legends.... and I just realized that I forgot Bombshell. Oh well, he'll get in the picture after the rest of Wreckage arrives. It's kind of sad as Wreckage or perhaps Megatronia will be my last CW/UW Combiner unless Predaking or Abominus are announced soon.
