    Your very welcome man, happy to help!:D 

    Oh and plus it gave me a chance to take apart the combiner and mess with the figures. Which pretty much convinced me to get the Monstructor version! These guys are cool and pretty fun to mess with! :)

    Yeah, funds permitting, I think I'll be in on this set to go with my MFT Legends set up. :) 

    Thanks again. :D

    Sorry to ask directly... Is the abs crunch joint in Dinoking a ratchet? Thank you!

    BOOM! Ordered Saurus with the Vinyl dinos set from Chosen Prime.

    Waiting on Reprolabels to fix their site and I'll order stickers for him.

    @BIOMEC so I just checked the ab crunch, and no it doesn't have a ratchet. It has soft de-tents you can feel but it definitely isn't ratcheted.

    Enjoy!!! It's a pretty fun set! :D

    Thank you very much!!!! Detents are enough for me! Now I am more willing to buy the Monstructor repaint!

    Your welcome! I tell ya I hope the joint are stronger on the repaint though. The joints on Saurus are decent but because they aren't as strong the combined mode is a little loose, especially the hips and the ab crunch. The detents are helpful but under the weight of the upper torso and arms they are definitely looser than I would particularly like. Don't get me wrong though, you can still pose Saurus but it takes a little patience.

    For people who own both Goryu and his shell, can he ride it like he did in the show instead of standing on it? and can you make a makeshift mace for him?

    I have a full set of the robots, most of which I haven’t opened, without the shells I would like to sell. If any of you want to you can PM me and we can talk.

    So got this with the shells over the weekend. Been busy so haven't really played with them yet.

    Shells are cool. Not $90 (or whatever retail is) cool but so glad FP made them so these can be pretenders.

    Anyone have any tips to get the stickers to stick? They're peeling off after a couple of days.

    Played around with Dinoichi, Dinoni, and Dino shi. Trademark Fansproject POINTY!!!

    But they're easy and fun to transform.

    Are the remaining 3 going to give me nightmares since these are so easy?

    Also, who has the axe? I thought it'd be Dinoichi?

    I just wish he didn't have to stand in permanent A-stance, I hate that stance, I prefer my combine to stand straight up, oh well

    No crotch-bot (Dino-san? can't remember) has pointy claws that manage to stab you no matter what you do, but there isn't much to the transformation there. The leg bots barely do anything to transform, turning into a block for leg mode is more involved than their robot to monster transformations.

    I wish I could get a set of shells without have to spend as much as a second hand car to get them
