    Is the outward hip ratchet on the V2 Power Baser stronger than V1 or is it about the same strength? The outward hip ratchets feel relatively weak on my V1 and definitely weaker than the forward/backward hip ratchets.

    I'm thinking about getting God Bomber, but if V1 is going to have trouble standing in combined mode then maybe I'll pass. I know V2 is also kind of stressed by the additional weight from what I've seen, but at least it could stand.

    I just got my normal God Armor today:

    mb06 and mb11 pbg.jpg
    I'll see how well it combines with my v1 PB compared to my Black PB/GA eventually.
    headmasters jrs mb11.jpg
    One thing I like about Normal God Armor over Black God Armor is because the Headmaster Jrs are different colors, its easier to tell which forehead crest goes with who. The Black Headmaster Jrs, being only black and grey, I had to take pics to remember who had which crest. But in the normal set, Shuta is grey, Minerva's crest has the red and Cab's has the blue.

    Also, I just noticed the box for this says MB-11/MB-11A/MB-11B/MB-11D (or MB-110?) So 11 is the normal one, 11A is black, 11B is purple, so I wonder what the fourth one is supposed to be?

    I'm one of those people. I have no connection to Powermaster Optimus Prime outside of the Marvel G1 comic. I know the rest of the lore to degrees but it's not important to me.

    That said, he's a fab figure. I would like it without the connection to G1 Marvel, but I probably wouldn't have spent the money on it.

    Okay, I combined the V1 Power Baser with God Armor:
    rab powerbasers.jpg
    And.. I can get the armored up V1 to stand in a slight A stance, but anything further than one ratchet click from straight down it will eventually collapse under its own weight. Although that still provides a limited range of posing opportunities at least. But the V1 hip ratchets are definitely much weaker than the V2 versions.

    Other stuff, the wings clip in securely to the back at least. But I am having the issue where the front leg panels on the robot mode don't fold in flush (which I'm not experiencing on the Black God Armor) Owel, I wasn't planning to display him in combined mode anyways since I have the black version for that.

    So yeah, I still like this set, but I'd only recommend if you have a g2 version.

    Yeah, I saw those and am still looking for the older hand upgrades, but if I recall, the v2 has stiffer joints and some remolded parts like on the truck bumper; though I may be wrong.

    Mine is the V2 and its nice and stable, though apparently if you have the V1 there are issues.
    I'm not sure if they've been addressed in the upgrade kit as you get new chromed thighs for both bots.

    As people have already said, there is one, but that's only to give the V1 the articulated hands and chrome thighs of the V2. It doesn't actually do anything for hip ratchet strength, unfortunately.

    That's too bad about the V1 ratchet being weaker than V2. Normally I like seeing companies make improvements on subsequent runs of their toys after initial release and I've supported that before by buying the improved version after getting the initial version. However, on something like Power Baser, where the God Armor was planned from the beginning, I feel like the hip ratchet strength shouldn't have been an "improvement" after initial release. They knew it needed to be able to support additional weight from the very beginning so it's odd that they didn't increase the hip ratchet strength until V2.

    I'm now most likely not going to get the God Bomber and I hope most Power Baser V1 owners also skip it to teach FansHobby a lesson. (I guess that's wishful thinking, but hey...) At least the God Bomber add-on wasn't something I was actively waiting for, so I guess I'll be happy saving the $130 or so.

    I'd been debating it but will be skipping it completely now, no way my v1 will hold extra weight. They should have included the stronger hips with god bomber so v1's could be upgraded.
