    I do like the potp head just a little bit better but I don't like the idea of sanding the neck ball on rodimus in case I were to put the kingdom head back on. I suppose it would be possible to grind a ball shaped hole in potp hot rod's head to make it fit the neck ball correct?

    I wanted to do that but I didn't want to deal with the eyes. To make a socket in Potp, you'd end up nailing the plastic that holds the eyes in place.

    I was worried myself about not being able to put the Kingdom head back on but I figured if I ever did want to put it back on, I could put some Miliput in the KRod socket to make it smaller.

    Hmm, that makes sense, thanks for the pics. I hadn't seen the inside of the potp head so I didn't think about the eyes.

    MP10v is quite a bit bigger than KRod.

    Seige and ER Prime are roughly the same height, and KRod is pretty much eye to eye with ER. I love my KRod and KGalvatron but KGalvatron would've been perfect for the old scale my CHUG collection used to be, where Op, Megs, Shockwave etc would've been as big as MP10V.

    You can detach it at the black hinge pieces and leave it as a partsforming bit if you're concerned.

    It's the lower red plastic of the spoiler/canopy piece right near the black hinge.
    On the opposite side you can see slight stressing between the vents and just under the orange part of the spoiler.

    I already was having regrets about buying this because of its $85 price tag and to me its not worth that price but this might be the final nail in the coffin to return this guy

    What do you mean no?! Huffer, you did it for Optimus.

    Yeah. And how did that work out last time you tried doing something for him?

    Can't blame Huffer for not wanting to be fucking framed.

    I'm having trouble keeping the backpack tabbed into the windshield. I've tried thickening the black tab/clip with super glue and floor polish, but it keeps popping loose easily...

    Any suggestions on what else I can try? I sincerely love this figure and it has become favorite desk bot and fiddle-figure, but the backpack is annoying...

    Huffer: wanted for murder of Autobot leader, Optimus Prime

    I mean I did't like him in the show too much either, but jeez that's taking it a bit far! :lol 

    It sounds like a tollerance issue with the tooth of the connector, I'd check it to see if the teeth are warped or stressed. You might be able to thicken the port if it is?

    Must be a fluke. The black hinge may hitting on some mold flange.

    You have to fold it properly. My first one didn't want to, and I had to work with it.
