    Just got my Smokey a little bit ago. I will attest. Great figure as usual.


    I did have one issue. I hope it is an isolated issue. QC 33.

    While moving/transforming the engine block I found the hinge pin fell out into my lap and the engine block came off the arm. I guess the pin wasn't... pinned in place? No big deal as long as the block is tabbed in place. I just threw it back in the holes and seems fine otherwise. Keep an eye out for it during your transformations.

    People lose their mind if every gun doesn't have alt mode storage, not sure why it would be ok for an 18 inch skeleton to just be shoved aside when in alt mode.

    My two cents:

    If this were just some thigh pieces and a chest like the Zeta combiners, I’d be more than happy with the combiner parts not transforming into anything. If the FT Superion kibble doesn’t transform, I’d be more than happy with that.

    But Menasor isn’t like other combiners - he’s a giant robot who wears cars as armour. This isn’t just kibble - it’s virtually a robot in it’s own right.

    I don’t want a giant Action Master just lying around the place, I like my robots to actually transform. So long as this thing is stable in combiner mode, I think the least they can do is make it transformable.

    I really dislike not having gun storage in alt mode. I mean, just give me a place to put it on somewhere, those who don't like the placement can still just leave it off.

    Fair enough. I guess I'm just tired of trailers. If someone were to drop off a spare MP-10 trailer at my place, I'd probably huck it in the trash. Never found a good way to display them and they just take up space. Storage for your display light remote controls is the best thing I've seen collectors do with them.

    I'm good with a second trailer or just a big ol' pair of pants that I can display next to my Universal Stands! Whatever lets them have the best most stable combined form because FT has the biggest hill to climb with all that weight coming together.

    I display Optimus’s trailer in base mode (Rodimus’s trailer, too) and I actually have the idea that I would display my stunticons with the trailer behind some of them, and Road King and maybe spoiler sitting on top of the extra trailer. Always a way to go vertical and incorporate your accessories :D

    I’d like to see the second trailer/skeleton come as a car carrier, a la Ultra Magnus, and be able to carry the 4 limb cars. I know RK’s trailer is attached but if you're gonna have a 2nd trailer, that isn’t beholden to any existing cartoon/comic design, make it interesting and useful.

    That's a really cool idea, I endorse the hell outa that. It is probably even more practical given that it can be less a conventional truck trailer visually but instead a more utilitarian assemblage of platforms and connecting joints. It can throw away a lot of the aesthetic constraints of a trailer to maximize actual functionality of combined mode parts.

    So basically RK will become MM with a weapons trailer ala PM Prime...

    There’s 1 other way I can think of where we wouldn’t end up with 2 trailers on RK... that’s if the Menasor trailer was mostly hollow and could engulf RK’s existing trailer?

    You can use the 2nd trailer as a riser for displaying the car bots in your dioramas!
