    not really. you could probably get away with the lower legs but the arms would be missing the entire bot and the torso seems to be like MS Bruticus where Motormaster makes up like 3/4 of the mass of the torso, just not the front chest plate

    Ahh, third party... A lesson in managing one's expectations.

    Hmm. Sounds like there is disagreement about menasor not requiring the limb bots. I’m in your camp @mlgpapalouie

    just to clarify:

    the original comment is about the limb bots of G1 toon Menasor not needing a 3rd limb mode. which for the legs is 100% true you just slap the cars on there. specifically for FT there’s more going on to form the elbows within the arm cars but you could just design it to where they split in half and it’d still work.

    my reply was just to say that i don’t think FT Menasor would look very good with none of the other figures attached to it, completely outside of whether or not they actually have to do any transforming to be attached.

    I don't care about release dates, but this Scrapper is scrapping the bottom of the barrel. I am not liking his looks at all.

    A3U has the first listed at $279 CAD which means if all 6 are this cheap, the full combiner will cost $1680. That's if the combiner parts don't cost extra.

    Yup

    Also it has been posited that Scrapper comes with "minimal" combiner parts compared to what Long Haul or Hook night come with, making those members possibly more expensive.

    my expectation is
    Mixmaster - same price as Scrapper
    Hook - same price as Scrapper (more combiner parts but probably less bulky figure)
    Long Haul - most expensive
    Scavenger - less expensive than Scrapper
    Bonecrusher - same as Scavenger

    i will still be homeless and destitute by the end of the set just from some figures more than others

    Are you still running the store?

    When I had my money locked in, these games worked on my nerves. Early on, I actually believed release dates and ordered accordingly (not quite naive - years ago, these dates weren't always pulled straight from a hobo's asshole unless the company's name was Diamond). Loved ordering well in advance but getting shipments after one show that would be completely unsellable by the next show. Then there was the game I used to call Grandma Seinfeld's Checks that came into play as I changed my ordering strategy so that _something_ would arrive in time. The more delays, the more uncashed checks I had to account for. Embarrassment Earth had this lovely habit of trying to charge four months of orders at the same time to the same card, regardless of how you'd actually split the order up. I didn't have a five-figure limit at the time, so then I had to scramble, and if it didn't suit those assholes, bam!, 15% restock fee. Very frustrating. Never mind that I learned very quickly not to offer preorders - everybody with a say in a chargeback will instantly rule against you so you're out the fees both ways - despite the disadvantage that put me at versus the competition.

    Doesn't hit me as hard now as a customer. But knowing that every solicited date is a bald-faced lie, I still resent it more than before I pulled back the curtain and saw what the "wizard" really was.

    I'm really thinking they put out the cheapest figure first to win people over...

    Put my PO in. I'm fairly new to 3rd party figures. From what I gather, it will take some time to receive all six figures, so I can delude myself into thinking I didn't fork over a ton of cabbage at once. :lol

    Transformation seems quite interesting.
    With those weird hinges that swing the forearms to the side of the truck, the bucket boom hinging out of the torso to lengthen is for combined mode. Then the front wheels have to somehow swing all the way into his lower back.
    Still unclear if the rounded piece between the shoulders in combined mode is part of the added heel, or is also hiding in the upper torso.
