    I think Victorion looks much better with Inferno's chest bits. Adds some MUCH NEEDED color to her. IMG_1085.JPG IMG_1086.JPG IMG_1087.JPG

    So I have four jet Blast-Offs as my limbs for POTP Screamer, and I'm thinking about dyeing them black. Does any one know how well they'll take to the dyeing process?

    Day 46 of our captivity, the only other Transformer here is an alternate Universe version of Optimus Prime. The others have yet to notice us. If anyone of the Decepticon command sees this; SEND MORE COMBINER TEAMS AND GET US OUT OF HERE!!!!

    Same. It will definitely be better than what Bandai has been putting out they last couple of years. Excited to see what they do for go-busters/beast Morphers. Hoping they show off something at toyfair.

    No that's the Legacy versions Megazord is reprolabled. I'd love to get Titanus as well as all the SoC versions but they are so expensive! Same for SoC Voltron

    Sadly Bandai loves their bricks too much. Even the most recent Sentai mechs are about as articulated as the 93' Megazord/DaiZyuJin anmd the American branch of them has followed suit. They just pile on more gimmicks for more play value.

    I get it they're trying to appeal to 10 year olds and younger but even FoC Bruticus has more articulation than any Mech/Megazord Bandai has put out in their main lines. And for all of Jobby's whining about them not being as good as Gao Gai Gar, the SoC versions with some tweaking for QC issues should be the norm not the exception. Which raises the question: Will Bandai of Japan lose the Super Sentai license to Takara/Tomy?

    {Seriously did Jobby really expect Neck Articulation on Dragonzord? The original Sentai suit didn't even have it! Hell I'm fairly sure Megazord didn't even have a neck joint on that suit but here he is complaining there's no ball joint at the neck.STFU and be grateful for what Bandai gave you(throw Zyoger cubes at him)}

    I was being funny about the transformers

    I actually didn't even realize the PR Zords were reprolabeled. Checking toyhax, it seems they have a set for the morpher too. I might do it but I don't know how'd the dragonzord And Titanus sets would look on mine as it they are the black and gold versions. Base megazord is standard colors though.

    I wonder what volcanicus would look like on titanus.

    ......why haven't i tried that yet....

    Yeah! At first I was expecting it to be a little more drab, but it really goes well with the assortment of colors that is UW Bruticus.

    That being said, I feel this Combiner is complete. I am still debating on whether or not to glue Blastoff’s tail fin together. I always stick it to the back (as per the cartoon design) and it works wonders in keeping the legs together.

    Fantastic! Thus the missing white we were promised in the poll but never got.

    I didn't bother with the Dragonzord Set because frankly it doesn't need them. Also I only replaced some of the standard stickers on Legacy Megs with the reprolables set, including the legs, chest and some of the arms I still wish they reissued the 93 version instead of the 2010 Version but then again I wouldn't have been able to do this:

    Back on CW I added a bit of Miliput into the holes for the pins that attach Brawls hips to his body, it isn't perfect but he's way less floppy now.

    There’s no wiggle so I’m guessing a short T peg. There’s a screw in the back of his head to hold it.
