    I've just bought this guy. :banghead:  Firstly, I don't like his size. Like all of DOTM, everything seems smaller (which is why I only bought four figures from the line total), too much smaller. Secondly, I just hate (this version of) Powerglide. His feet are awkward (the gap between them and the leg is just too obvious, plus the feet are just so...well, they look like clown shoes), his body refuses to stay together (one of the pegs was stressed right out of the box, but neither side holds together well, not even the undamaged side), and don't even get me started on the head. Seriously, i wasn't that hard to add a ball joint in there, was it? Or just use the same thing Classics Coneheads use, which would have been more accurate to G1? :mad  [/rant]

    What I need are ideas on how to make my $16 (Australia Cyberverse is a rip off, i know) not go to waste. I just can think of what to use him for. I can't even make a decent Flywheels out of him, and I can't think of a way to make him...acceptable. Surely someone has an idea on what Powerglide can be used for? Help?



    *yeah, I hate DOTM Powerglide. Deal with it. ;)

    You should use your disdain for DOTM Powerglide as fuel for a Shapeways Powerglide.

    he makes a half decent foot, maybe a Cyberverse homage of Energon Superion Maximus with PCC Skyburst. No idea right now on the arms though.

    And he actually has a better bot mode to boot (no pun intended).

    Exchange it for another one, it's a fine and solid figure.

    I think he wants to use it for a custom, hence the thread being in Radicons GD.
