    Really appreciate this! That confirms what I’ve been noticing on the reissue set. I just received the reissue Montana and judging by reviews and online photos, it looks like his colors have been slightly altered as well. Did the original Montana have sparkly silver/white paint on his hips, crotch, and hood of his car?

    IIRC the original Montana ended up largely grey due to a manufacturing error, then later they fixed it to being white.

    Gotcha! Thats interesting to know. Did Montana have white plastic and metallic white paint applied on top or was the figure just white plastic?

    Always been fully painted, it’s why they included large spare sections of figure in cad rod paint chips. Can’t remember if any of the re-issues came with those spare parts or not.

    Dragstrip, Deadend, and Wildrider arrived yesterday and this set is officially incredible in my mind!! Motormaster had quite a few issues out of the box sadly. The bug gun had a snapped off barrel, two of the screws in the combined mode head were stripped, and motormasters left foot was broken at the ankle joint pin. But it’s all been fixed and I’m very happy with the west!
    Better late than never!

    I'm really annoyed my original MM doesn't have the painted elbows in combined mode like the new version has.

    How did you go about fixing the stripped screws? I think I may have one in his pelvis but i'm not sure how to fix it.

    I use a set similar to this on my drill with a VERY low power setting and it eventually got them out! Whoever assembled my copy really went to town on making sure those screws were too tight lol.

    Oh, mine doesn't have any stripped screw heads. I have one screw in his pelvis that continuously rotates no matter how many times I turned it. Surprisingly the screw is still holding despite the plastic being apparently stripped out.

    To finally put the cherry on top, I ordered the two sticker sets for this guy. Primarily for the eyes and the added black detail for the chest. This sets has seriously become one of my absolute favorites!

    I’d be happy to! Both of the listings were just of the one each. But I would message the seller to see if he can make more. I asked him if he was going to make any more stickers for the eyes since it had sold out, and he made a single set for me to purchase. Incredible person and I think he used to be active in this thread!

    I did the same. I have XTB Menasor as my Combiner and FT for bots.

    Have DX9 ever mentioned wanting to do toy repaints of these?

    Has anyone tried this kit out yet?

    Menasor I feel like would be the most appropriate with a kit like this as the cars are just slapped on.
