*checks to see if anyone is selling FunPub Impactor and/or Bluestreak*
how hard would it be to swap the upper arm and thighs from silverbolt (orange parts) with the white parts from scattershot? im trying to turn scattershot into flame and the orange parts would look better
Just looking at the pic (don't have it in hand) it looks like those are all pinned. Especially where they connect to the waist/shoulder.
May be worth it to stop by Radicons, I think they have a thread that you can ask for advice. That's where I got a few tips when I had to swap a bad connector on my Godbomber.
I remember something about the shoulders being glued together from when Nonnef released the ratchet replacements, so that's a concern if you want the whole upper arm.
If you don't swap the hips, you can slide the thigh off and 3 screws for the lower leg. The lower arms have 2 screws and a pin, the shoulder is one screw and glue on the seem. Once the shoulder is separated from the glue you can twist the halves out separately to get the upper arm out.
Oh hello, there... I brought this meme I made.

Not bad, but I think G2 Swindle needs more work.
Yeah it’s mainly on turning him into a believable fire truck. I’m gonna has to leave it alone until I come up with something. Don’t wanna mess with it too much.
Just a thought...
Not a bad place to start.
You laugh, but that's exactly how I landed Thunder Mayhem and Wreckage at cost as well as UW Ratchet.
I find it hard to believe that anyone would part with Impactor's first good toy or the only blue Bluestreak released in the US. As for Ratchet and Thunder Mayhem they were not well received by every one so I could seem them being sold off.
They've been hitting the market heavily since Siege Impactor was revealed.
If we get a proper blue Bluestreak from Siege, I'll probably sell my Impactor and Bluestreak to him (if he hasn't found them before then).
You're a better man than I.
You do know about those weird sellers on eBay, right? The ones that actually sell them. Although still think it's weird that Bluestreak is seen as the moneymaker.
Seeing as I have them and have no plans to part with them I don't bother with looking for them on eBay. There is almost no pride you could offer me for any of my CW or POTP figures.
I like that Energon Superion with the add on kit - I was actually looking at that the just yesterday thinking that it's still a really cool design (once again, with the add on set), especially if I look at it more like a forgotton-but-still-really-kick-ass Japanese super robot team from the '80's and not like Superion.
Trouble is, you have to buy an extra third-party add-on that I don't have to get the jet nose on his torso to stay in place. Otherwise, it's a neat display figure but the torso will flop apart if you handle it.
Yes. Looks like Barricade from the Energon line.
