    Holy carp, I cannot get those back screws loose on Scourge for the life of me. Anyone have any clever tricks for getting them out?

    Good luck

    Most people had a problem with these. Use a larger bit and/or put a rubber band over the head of the screw. Apply force directly above/towards the direction the screwdriver is.

    And if all else fails, tiny drill bit :(

    I can't get the screw out either. May have partially stripped it too. Also I think the head and/or mask on mine has a mold error. It sits slanted and there's stress marks forming on thy peg of the mask of mine :/

    Needs to be a left twist drill bit

    I used a ph1 DeWalt screwdriver bit to remove the back screws
    Also having a cordless drill driver with extension helps

    I have noticed the screws don't want to go all the way in the new piece from dk46

    I was using a PH0 screwdriver that is not too pointed and it just wasn't going :/ Only other time I had issues with a screw was TM2 Megatron for one of the back of head piece screws. Every other kit I've gotten I had no issues getting screw off the TF figure

    Might just leave it lol

    Sometimes a ph1 screw will strip in a way that a ph2 can remove it

    Anyone else get this from BBTS and have it come with and extra blade in a seperate baggie? What's the deal with this? I haven't intalled anything on my figure yet, but there's no documentation about why there's a 2nd blade or what makes it different or why it should be used instead of the blade in the kit proper. It's definitely not the different color "chinese bonus" part, it's the same orange as the regular blade.

    Yes mine came with two of the same one, and it was actually the spare that perfectly fit the arm as the one in the actual box was incredibly loose

    Has anyone elected to do the DNA kits with Toyhax? Haven't seen a version with all yet.
