    True, if somebody has the skill to make an alternative chestshield I'm all ears.

    I am thinking about placing the decepticon insignia on the roller car like i did with the wings of uranos set

    When I get mine, I'll mock something up real quick and see how it looks...

    Personally, I prefer USPS...they just get stuff moved ASAP regardless of what kind of shipping you paid for...if it says 5-7, and they can do it in three, they will...

    UPS, I find, will get you your package only in the amount of time you paid for...if it says 5 days, they'll hold it for 5 days in a facility even if they could get it to you sooner...I've watched the tracking everytime something is being shipped through them, and it will sit in the local distribution center until the day it's supposed to be delivered...anytime I order from amazon and UPS is the carrier, I instantly get bummed out...

    Luckily being less than an hour's drive from BBTS, I always get my UPS packages the day after it leaves BBTS...and I don't have to sign for it so it's always waiting for me when I get home from work. The only time I get screwed is if it ships on a Friday since they don't have standard weekend service.

    I prefer UPS and FedEx because they'll deliver (most of the time) on the day it is supposed to arrive. With USPS, I've had several instances where even with Priority, it sits for days before there's any tracking update.

    (No offense to the hard working smart USPS employees out there or on this board)

    I recently purchase something and it was shipped out from the same state I'm in (about 75 miles), but now the tracking is showing it is in a facility SEVERAL states (1800 miles) away. Makes me wonder what kind of folks work there that don't know how to sort by zip codes/states.

    Didn't Sidecutter mention some time ago that cheaper shipping for him means cheaper toys for us or something along those lines when people asked what happened with T-bone and Car Crash?

    Did you slide the part next to the ball joint back from the rest of the figure? Mine were a little stiff and I didn't notice they could do that at first.

    I ordered mine last Thursday and it got here yesterday. It didn't ship out 'til Tuesday, though. There really hasn't been much snow here this week. Cold as heck, but not much snow.

    I use it, and it's usually pretty quick, but then, like Kibble, I live about an hour away from BBTS and TFSource, so any shipping is usually practically overnight.

    I prefer USPS because they work in conjuction with Canada Post and can actually deliver things.

    FedEx and UPS, I've gotta go play telephone tag to pick up my parcels because I'm not home during their delivery hours.

    Well fuck a duck! I looked all in my box and the bubble wrap and couldn't find the replacement handle and finally got M3 put together and he can't hold his damn rifle!

    I didn't notice that once the "notch" in the peg on the shoulders is in that trailer part that you could still turn it. I thought it only fit in one way period.

    Alt mode is beautiful but still the weakest mode of the three. It scales well with the other Stunticons and the other Energon combiners, but not with Hastak deluxes or most other 3P releases, even like Defender, Code, G3 trailer. It looks good with MT Battle Tanker.

    Mainly, though, I wish the vehicle mode did more, like have a turning axis for the cab. I don't see how the current setup could manage it without making the front cab detachable from the trailer - but then the stability in other modes might be compromised.

    So I didn't see anyone post this yet and nothing in the instructions, but did anyone notice that the trailer pieces that attach to the back that make the shoulder cannons on Not Motormaster, if you folded them together they made like these blade things?

    this transformation really separates the men from the boys. I only got so far without looking at the instructions and ended up with the legs flipped around. The crotch is correct but the tires are on the inside... I am still scratching my head. I just got back to truck mode barely so I can start over with the instructions this time. But without being overly forcefull, not all tabs are pegged in. It feels like parts need to tab into places that I can't see and I don't want to break anything on my first try... I LOVE this!

    This is what I was referring to with the shoulder cannons that attach to Not Motomormaster at his back, if you flip the panels like this it looks like blades. Theres no tabs or anything so I don't think it was intentional, but I thought that was the correct way at first when I was messing with it without directions.

    Bah, mine got sent on the same day as yours but no luck for me. I even chased the post van down the street like Eddie Murphy looking for ice cream, but he wouldn't stop.

    Long weekend too so not going to be before Tuesday for me...

    People weren't kidding about his transformation. Kinda sucks how scramble city is basically pointless with all its drawbacks, writs have less articulation when you equip the weapons, Tbone can't hold the sword at all and the shoulder connectors are much looser so the arms fall off if you move M3 too much.

    Oh well the official config is freaking bad ass, best gestalt I own now. And I spent a good while messing with just Diesel before I combined them finally, he's utterly fantastic.

    Once my camera is charged up I'll post a mountain of pics. :)
