Those work pretty well, don't worry.
I get what you mean, it does make the interaction feel more arduous when you need to rotate the bicep to keep the forearm orientation, but at least the range is there though. Nothing you can do to help the limit of the elbow. But yeah, it's not the end of the world, least we get 90 and not less.
Definitely do be careful with this part when transforming him, I'm about to fire off an email to Fans Toys service (waiting till March for CNY holidays to complete) to get some replaced for a friend.
Hmmm that sucks...
Thanks. I did not know this was an option, nor necessary. What would brake if I didn't fix it?
As far as I know, you don’t risk anything by not tabbing it in (I’ve seen no reports of breaks or anything), but the foot does seem a lot more stable when tabbed.
However, by tabbing it in, you lose the upwards toe-tilt articulation, so some people are leaving it untabbed deliberately, just to get that bit of extra movement.
repeated tabbing and untabbing causes some paint rub/flake on the inside of the slot
Just transformed Spoiler for the first time in ages. I'd forgotten just how good a job they did of compacting everything down!
Not too hard to do either. Didn't have as much difficulty getting him all nice and solid.
Hehe the trick is back to robot mode... and keeping your nails all in one piece
Nails are the way to do it. Going from vehicle to bot, I used a spudger on that space between his forearms and that little easily-breakable piece that extends underneath, and have already damaged the paint (with a freakin' spudger!) after 2 or 3 transformations. That connection is tight.
Yeah, I have multiple paint damages from transforming spoiler, but it was my fault for the most part.
Spoiler is really not fun to transform from car to bot at all. So much going on the legs.
that thin piece of plastic on the legs is scary but I enjoy transforming him
Yeah, I don't mind Spoiler. Raodking however...
Roadking was a challenge, on par with Maverick.
Are there any upcoming events/fairs etc. that might be a good platform for Fans Toys to show off any new & upcoming products?
Compared to almost everything else FT has done transforming Spoiler (either way) is cake.
Roadking is a lot to handle, but IMO it's not scary like Spoiler (and other FT releases) can be. There are, however, a lot of steps and it can be pretty tedious. Spoiler... I wonder each time if this will be the time that little piece shears off.
RoadKing is very involved but you don't feel you'll break anything during the transformation and no tool is required as well. The same can't be said for Spoiler, it's such a joyless process, the tolerances are very low and it's a very unforgiving transformation...along the lines of 'if you don't do this before that' you run the risk of damaging the figure altogether. My least favourite of the lot.
Really? There was just a lot of stuff that gets in the way, but other than that he was pretty easy to transform.
