    Maybe coat the ball joint in some clear nail polish or use that future stuff. I'm sorry I don't remember what it's called.

    3rd parties...

    I have the G-Creation set, regarded as the best looking Volcanicus at this time. I've yet to combine him yet, but I look forward to it when I have the energy to do it as it's a bit of work to do from the reviews I've watched.

    When I do, I'll do a series of pictures for sure, to include CW combiners and my other titan sized ones, along with many mainline figures to show size.

    I just paid way too much for the KO PE hand/feet for Bruticus, where the feet are colour-coded to match Brawl & Swindle

    Anybody able to vouch how they look on the NA Hasbro CW limbs? Or am I gonna have to get the JP Takara UW Combaticons

    I think I was watching that on ebay! I have sold 2 sets of PE hands and feet at 100, don't feel bad! The demand vs no supply and time makes these things pricey apparently

    The PE feet/hand sets have turned into quite the high market item, even the KOs are hard to get and expensive.

    There has been some stores with stock on AliExpress and jumped on a few sets, and while they do the job, they must be 4th level parties as the quality isn't great, but at least they do the job. I had to do some fixes, they don't align perfectly, and one set, the 5mm pegs of the hands are so loose that they don't even fit as closer to 4mm than 5mm and I'm going to have to do more than floor polish or similar.

    I did a dispute and was refunded 10$ for each set as out of the box, such fixes should not happen, but again, at least they are better than the original feet/hands so that all the combiners I have out, have better balance now.

    Does PE stand for anything? I’m late to the party on this.

    Perfect Effect, it's the 3rd party brand name.

    Future/Finish/Mop 'n Glo. You're looking for Acrylic floor polish.

    I’m not familiar with this item. Where is it sold so I can see it in person? Or can you link me to the smallest size? Or is it just tear off a small piece myself sort of thing?

    You'll find it in the plumbing section of any hardware store. Commonly referred to as "plumber's tape."
    Here's Toy Polloi working on Onslaught with some:

    I've used it in the past on loose joints of 25th anniversary G.I. Joe and it's worked great.

    I figured I would post this here since it is a CW appreciation thread after all. I am working on some different upgrade kits that turn some different cw molds into more accurate versions of themselves. I just have dragstrip partially made rn, I think he might be done by the end of August though. CW Dragstrip upgrade 2.png CW Dragstrip upgrade 1.png

    I want an upgrade that lets the Legacy Motor Master be fully CW Compatible. He can already use the CW Legs, just give me something for the arms!
