    Amazing. I love these guys.

    I know others have pointed out the chipping paint, but I actually dig it. It makes them feel roughed up and abused, in a good way. I would recommend a sealing spray to avoid more of it, though.

    You need to change Blot's legs from left to right so that his flight stand is facing front, theen you can turn him into his backpack mode.

    To connect him into Hungerr, you gotta use the pegs located on hungerr's thighs. I'll show you some pics in just a bit

    You need to sand the connector piece on Blot a bit so that both of Hungerr's legs can be close together (so you can still lock the torso using Hungerr's beast hind legs). Then Hungerr's pegs can fit into the holes on Blots snugly.

    Still waiting for the matte sealant to arrive in my mailbox, I'd seal these Monstercons as soon as I get it!

    This looks awesome and now you're making me want to do one of my own. And I don't even care about Monstructor!

    Do the oversized limbs still plug into the onrmal sized hunngrr? I would have thought their combiner pegs were too big.

    Go ahead my dude! And yeah, these OS combiner ports are the original size, so they're compatible!

    Not gonna lie, something about having the paint chipping on these guys feels right, especially given the various real-world problems with the originals... the shells getting all gross and discolored, the massive amounts of GPS-prone materials, etc.

    Seal 'em up, but I wouldn't necessarily bother doing too much in the way of touchups first.

    This and a couple other Monstructors of late have looked fantastic. I just ordered 3 OS Blots to start my own.

    Damn...now I regret selling my spare Abominus..this looks good. Next time try getting some thinner for your paints..after practicing a few times you'll get the hang of it. Use the manufacturer thinner..don't use just water(if Acrylic).

    Hey, quick question. Are the KOs OS or are they in scale with the rest of Prime Wars figs? It looks interesting and, while they may not be in the anime, I kinda want my combiners to be at a level scale, equal height.
