    I think that is his car accessories shop. Selling TFs is his side business. As for the glove, maybe got something to do with the coronavirus

    Thanks a lot! I just watched Lego Masters Australia and got a bit inspired! (in my own basic way)

    That's right! I don't have any American locos as of yet (would love an old Union Pacific Challenger!)

    Ebay:
    715B3D1F-4A62-426F-97AC-7FF75942F18F.jpeg 15FB4245-9F77-4A14-BA55-F1F8CE4E4038.jpeg 332FC103-7B12-454B-8585-CBFC62A2B940.jpeg 7035D39D-AB17-4FBC-AB33-BB2F4F1E2D35.jpeg FEAD2764-4258-4C37-8722-4F8FAF349C2D.jpeg Snagged Roadking brand new on ebay for $130 shipped. Super cool in both modes, but as I’m not the first to say, fuck was that transformation into truck mode annoying. Took a while to figure out and then tabbing it all in was sooo frustrating. Only managed to get it 95% in the end, but going back to bot mode was much easier. Though I did manage to break one piece out of pure stupidity misreading which part of the front of the trailer was supposed to fold and which was supposed to slide (the two little wheels). Managed to fix it so all good.

    Dont know if it helps, but in terms of getting all the panels from the back pack to fit in - if after (fully) transforming the arms and tabbing them together you pull them about half a cm away from the body using the butterfly joints (no need to extend the silver pins in this assembly), then it makes it much easier to fit all the back pack panels in.
    Once the back pack panels are all in, you can then push down the arm section, securing everything - certainly beats a few youtube vids i saw where the back pack panels were forced in under the arm flaps (with the arms in position).

    The good news on the transformation is that for most people it is easier from the second time on since you now know what you are doing.

    $130 is a steal.

    Do you have the Ebay link?

    Also going forward try watching these. Forward and reverse transformations. They are very helpful.

    Ebay:
    thanks!

    it was a one-off seller I think. Had 0 feedback so I took the risk and it worked out.

    I do watch those videos when the directions don’t make sense to me, but here I thought they did. That’s my only real complaint with FT. They tolerances can be so tight that sometimes it’s hard to tell if you’re doing something wrong or just not applying enough pressure. I’m stubborn about trying not to use videos until I have to for some reason; like not using a game guide for a video game until I’ve struggled uselessly for an hour lol.

    i think I understand what you mean... I’ll keep that in mind next time I transform it!

    No problem. I don't chance it. If Emgo has one of his JTI (Just Transform It) videos up, then I watch it first.

    Also don't forget to flip the faux feet headlights for alt mode. It should look like this.

    What's the seller's name/link?
