    On hasbro versions, pyra and g2 onslaught the pin is not removable without damage. The ko's in not sure. I used the tdw kit on my ko Hotspot.

    Is it the same on both sides? I don't have the ko onslaught to compare.

    I have the multicolor ko. It is also missing that tab. I think they used some parts from Hot Spot which is why the tab isn’t there.

    Whew. Unscrewing Onslaught's legs wasn't difficult, but getting that knee joint PIN out and back in nearly saw me chucking him out the window. I still can't get the joint to peg into the knees in bot mode despite watching all the transformation videos and aligning the double knee joints correctly, so I'm disappointed with him. I also don't like that the tabs the Bruticus chest flaps tab into were removed on the KO. But Onslaught aside, I admit Bruticus at least is growing on me.

    Warts and all, this was worth the $33 shipped.

    Looks like Hot Spot has the pointy tabs assembled backwards as well.... SIGH.

    Can I trim these off without ill effects on any of Hot Spots modes? I hope they aren't needed like with his mold mate Onslaught as I don't have another pin reassembly in me at this point...

    It appears it helps keep the leg stay fixed when folded up.

    But maybe I can live without it.

    If I remember correctly the triangles only helps with aligning the knee joint not holding it in place.

    Side note …

    I will be/ am grabbing Legacy Menasor ….but does not mean CW Menasor is chit. G1 Slavishly Legacy Menasor will be fun and in my collection because I am a sucker for combiners….but does not diminish the greatness of CW Menasor

    I still like my CW Menasor's proportions (with PE ups) than the newer Legacy one. 20220717_175349.jpg 20220717_174332.jpg 20220717_174156.jpg 20220717_173929.jpg 20220717_173405.jpg
