    EDIT: I didn't realize the toy already did this on it's own, so this part is unnecessary. I've removed this from Thingiverse, if you need a copy PM me.

    Here's my next fix part for Combiner Wars/Unite Warriors Devastator.

    This part locks Scavenger's shovel arm in place in Devastator's combined mode. Normally, Scavenger's shovel arm does not lock in place (edit: actually, it does) and can move freely, which makes Devastator's elbow joint very loose. This part holds the shovel arm in place and makes Devastator's elbow joint noticeably tighter.

    To install, place one end under the edge of Scavenger's chassis, and then pull the other end so it clips onto the inside of the shovel arm. The part installs onto the back side of Devastator's arm, so it is mostly hidden when viewed from the front.

    Odd, my UW Devastator has the shovel arm clip into place quite securely without any need for add-ons. I can see how this is useful for other people though - nice work!

    mine too. If you push the shovel arm up against scavenger’s body it’ll click in place. BUT those can also wear down or break over time. This is another simple yet effective fix for it. Nice job!

    Well, shit. Mine clicks into place too! LOL

    That sure was a very roundabout, time-intensive way to learn that I was mistransforming something! :lol 

    Nevermind! Hahaha

    keep that elbow fix! It may still come in quite handy!
    I’ve always felt that the Titan figures are made of softer plastic. Those plastic tabs will bend, weaken, and break over time.
