    He's really big for a generations collection.

    The only way it fits is if you're willing to accept those alt modes as "kaiju" and really play up the monster aspect of their design. They dwarf most Dinobot options so...ymmv.

    So I got the extra faces and metallic eyes from Flypro. Is there a way of using the metallic eyes with the stock face? The stock eyes seemed to be glued to the stock face. Should I go with it with a knife or are the metallic eyes just not meant for that face?

    Got mine on Tuesday. So odd and quirky and I love that. Fans Hobby got these Monsterbots right in every way. Now that I have all three, they look great together. I love how sturdy they feel. Fun to transform and handle. I don't have a single worry about anything breaking or stressing. Built like a brick, great ratchets, and excellent QC. Very happy with the purchase.

    Anyone got one of these available for trade? I have some 3P minibots (XTB Toro and BC Slick) for trade if you're interested.

    I’m currently selling all three Monsterbots for $300 shipped in the US. All have their instructions and boxes. Just don’t have the room for them anymore.

    Almost got all three of these guys last month, but had to send my daughter some money. Then, this month, I wound up getting MP Inferno, Red Alert+, Smokescreen+ and Grapple, so I'm gonna have to hold off on getting the Monster trio again. :confused:

    'ello. Just acquired the last of the Monsterbot trio, Megatooth (love 'em all), but I was wondering if somebody could help me with something. The figure is complete and transforms fine, but I've noticed that in robot mode the rotating torso part can't stay upright, and tends to fall back with the weight.

    I was wondering if this was normal? Maybe there is a transformation stage I missed, like someway to lock it upright, or failing that, some way to tighten the rotating thingy. To be honest, just clicking the hip ratchets forward a notch solves it, but I was curious if there was anything I could do about it.

    Anyway, thanks!

    Just got all three Monsterbots. Love them, but my Megatooth has the loose waist issue and the gun was missing from the box. I’ll have to try some of the fixes suggested here, but I did reach out to Fans Hobby about the missing accessory.
