    MFT Sludge is hard to find, DX9 Sludge is still out there, it's DX9 Grimlock that is also hard to find.

    DX9 War in Pocket X19 Quaker:
    After looking around it seems Sludge is drying up.

    RID2000 kinda had that with larger Prime and Ultra Magnus to go with the Spychangers.
    But Cyberverse line for Prime was amazing for the time. Almost all the characters were in a size class that matched their TV appearances. Plus playset/vehicles.
    I was disappointed with drop in quality for new RID figures.

    Oh well, 3p came through G1 and IDW legends representations of my favorite characters and even some third tier or more obscure guys like the Headmasters cast.

    Getting the IF Transmetal 2 Megatron and Optimal Optimus, hoping for an IF Waspinator and maybe Rattrap but the rest not high on my list. Prefer a few more IDW inspired figures.

    Sorry to necro an old thread, but I recently picked up the boxed set of DX9 Dino's. Generally pretty happy (though the yellow paint seems if anything to be even thinner on these than the original)
    But I can't for the life of me get the Intelligence Transfer helmet to fit over Grimlocks dino head? There's a slight split/gap in the back of the head which seems to be pretty common with this, and I suspect it's making the head a little too wide for the helmet to fit over.
    Is this a common issue, is there a fix or something super obvious that I'm missing? The interior of the helmet seems to be carefully sculpted to fit over the head in just the right fashion, and if I squeeze it on it looks like it would be a perfect fit but as soon as you let go it gets popped off.

    The larger pin in the jaw seems to be the piece that's holding the two side of the head together. I might try using a pin punch to push the pin in a little tighter and see if that can close the head split. Otherwise, I may have to file or sand down the interior of the helmet a little.

    Otherwise pretty happy with this guy and the set as a whole

    Don’t think I ever managed to get the helmet to fit properly onto mine in all honesty.

    This is the best fit I can get, and the third pic shows the head gap.
