    Yes, especially going from car to robot, there are a lot of pegs and tabs that will not come out easily and they're hard to reach with your fingers. Car mode is amazingly tight and dense, there's no hollow spaces anywhere and it all pegs together tight, but that makes it tricky to get it apart to go back to robot mode

    If you go on the Wish App you can get 10 Spudgers for $2 I recall. Ive been using only 1 this whole time and still holds up. Also a popsicle stick works ok as a spudger.

    Just received and opened Spoiler and he is HUGE!!! 8.25 inches (20.96 cm) in height in bot mode. Just how big is this FT Menasor going to be when combined????

    He is slim, but not off putting and doesn’t look weird or anything like that. Just really tall!

    The individual robots have nothing to do with the height of combined mode in this case

    They have to have something to do with it... unless there is some special magical mass shifting going on. 4 Autobot sized cars as legs with RoadKing even all balled up stuck in some torso-partsforming-trousers is not going to equal a small combined bot.

    The entirety of menasor is a stand alone action figure you just slot the alt modes into like a display stand

    Hopefully it is more fun, dynamic and interactive than your description. Crossing my fingers.

    Montana is well proportioned overall. The pics I saw basically looked just like Henry from the side. Which doesn't bother me much, Henry is a very good figure in spite of that, but may hit a sour note with other people. I would be all over this if I hadn't missed the boat on Roadking. Maybe i'll be in a position to buy when the reissue comes. I have a bit of a backlog to work through first anyway.

    This is what the final version(s) of fans toys Menosar supposed to be like, for those not in the know. Im still not sure if the head and chest pieces for toy and toon all come together in the final set though. Nobody knows TFcon-LA-3rd-Party-116.jpg

    I’m sure the actual combiner will be fine, but that’s the basics of the way it slots together. Motormaster plugs into the back and other than some pylons above the shoulders doesn’t contribute to the combined mode.

    Breakdown and Wildrider just plug into the legs in alt mode. Maybe the arms do something

    You’re forgetting that MM forms the back of the combined mode and is also literally the entire mass of the chest since the combined parts is just a shell around his front and sides
