    I think Thomas looks like Gewalts smaller brother on this pics. IMO they don't really fit togheter.

    Let's wait for Berserk :D

    I hope Berserk is a bit bigger than Thomas. I like big bots!

    Agreed. Gewalt is too big and too bulky next to Thomas. Not to mention the Playschool alt modes Gewalt has. If anything, going by the actual G1 toon... AstroTrain was the taller and bulkier of the two. I prefer Ditka as G1 Blitzwing... for now. Hoping FT Beserk hits a home run for us Blitzwing fans.

    Okay - I give up. I've been fighting with this for like 2 hours now. I got my baba order today. He seems fine in bot mode, and I can get him into shuttle mode fine, but I can't get to train mode for the life of me.

    I have this gap I can't figure out. I figure 'oh, it's the knee ratchet' but if I push the lower one back a notch, it then pushes the leg/nosecone assembly out of whack. Am I doing something wrong? Or is this a symptom of knee ratchet issues or something?

    Goddamnit... there's a slider in there too? lol I didn't really notice that the whole knee part slid down. Like, I noticed something going on, since you had to move that side tab out and then back in to lock that all in. I didn't fully pay attention that they tell you to just fold out the legs - not unpeg that and fold it all out. I guess I just assumed.

    Thanks, my man.

    Hmmm. If Astrotrain was a standard-gauge loco, I think he'd almost be to scale. But Japan uses Cape gauge, so I think he's too big.

    Era-wise, I think they're perfect. (though I'm not good with those cars, so I could be way off)

    Love that look cut between joints. That’s what I’ll be doing as well.

    Sure it is! But it’s made easier with waterslides when you know how to work them, and joints or creases never bother you then :cool:
