never seen that upgrade kit before, who made it?
There's no such thing as "Regerts"... The closest I got to your reply was this...Urban Dictionary: nam saing LOL
I've got the upgrade sets for M3 and still have full combiner on my shelf.
DMY D06 Quartermile Kit and the Shadow Fisher M3 Combiner Elbow covers.
Also a spoiler and some other pieces.
Here are pics
Does anyone still have that kit in stock or is it Ebay only now?
Haha, I know. I was playing off of your We're The Millers reference. Scotty P with the "No Ragerts" tattoo was the one who kept saying "Nam say'n?". But nam looks like ham to me so I spelt it nahm.
echotransformer and I designed it. DMY released it. It's been discontinued. We'd love to see them release it again based on the G2 figures FP has been releasing.
No disrespect to you G.I. Eddie but the way the set was handled was a hot mess. From losing the G1 guns to the releasing of it. I really wanted it but gave up on it.
I would still love to get it if only for the replacement windshield.
did your original break or you just want the smoke colored one? I have my original blue if you need.
The issue was on DMY's side, unfortunately.
Yes I know
this is the configuration I like best. I’m messing with these fp stunticons for the first time. Doing individual bots first then gonna combine and see how this thing is
I dont recall the alert for this...my windshield has a nice crack in it. Still holds together just a crack there.
looking for an arm socket for combined mode
anyone know where I can get one?
Yes the socket for an arm. Idk if they are side specific but one of the three tabs has a stress mark and is half broke off. It’s the socket that goes on drag strip or dead end
You're probably gonna have to buy a whole nother Diesel unless you luck into a junker. But those are the parts that broke the most often.
Yeah, I noticed the very first time I tried to combine, that those tabs were definitely "not designed for an easy/exact fit". I think I ended up shaving off half their thickness, and re-shaping them into an angle, to get them to "fit well, without super-stressing them". (And I ended up making them side-specific, though the difference is slight---Deadend and Dragstrip are NOT identically molded there---I think it has something to do with the Dragstrip's upper-most collar-slot area)
As-molded will *work*, but it'll stess the heck out of every tab and hinge involved, and isn't likely to last very many transformations, IMHO.
Short answer: no chance in hell you're getting that specific part, all long gone
long answer: the mold should theoretically be active still, since AgesThreeAndUp has solicited the G2 colors for this combiner and released the four limbs. The only one left is Motormaster . . . and if they're doing that, it must mean the mold is around and they're gonna use it. Of course, the parts will be some pastel purple or teal
So this is a common issue?
also why can’ti plug in drag strip or dead end? I try to slide them onto the combiner ports and they won’t lock in or even side on. The legs slide and lock in fine.
i know to match up the channels on each corresponding male and female ends but still not sliding over the lock/release tabs
