    If you don't mess with it too often you don't need to worry!

    No news yet, I wish though. Do you or anyone know how many years his treads or tires will last before they crack or deteriorate? As I think they are rubber and rubber does break down inevitably.

    such pitiful tank treads on a otherwise incredible albut flawed figure


    would like nothing better then to literally rip the rubber tank treads off fuumas arms and replace them with some set of alternate tank tread parts that would somehow assemble into place right over the wheel parts of the original treads

    after looking at my headless weaponless turrentless combiner wars brawl seeing how his arms and legs transform and fit together as a set of tank tread parts i be seriously considering just chopping him up for parts salvaging the arms and legs and the body bits for his shoulders(basically everything accept the lower torso and hip ball joints ) and just custom build thee set of brawl parts together into a set of tank tread parts for fuuma

    Yeah I really hate the tank treads, I would so rather of not had rubber ones. I could not find online anywhere how long rubber lasts before it cracks or breaks down.

    i beleive i have found a simple solution folks

    after doing some quick measurements concerning the over all 3 dimensional area of fuumas arms concerning the undersized tank tread parts on his arms i beleive i have found a simple solution

    in terms of over all length it is quite reasonable to salvage the arm parts the leg parts and the chest shoulder bits from combiner wars brawl

    all that plastic kibble lining the inside of his legs had to be removed also the front of his feet had to go as well to make sure the entire top surface of the tank parts would be all level and smoothed out

    also his retracting upper legs and knees had to be swapped out as well. good luck removinig the pin from his lower legs folks

    the handle plug port on the outside of his lower arms were then drilled through and a set of ball jointed dowl rod parts were then salvaged from the classics triple changer springer /sandstorm figure

    epoxy glued the ball joint into brawls lower arm from the inside of the arm using it asa ball joint for the brawls socket jointed hip joints to attach to

    this makes it so that the arms and legs can be transformed as a single multijointed set of articulated parts folks

    the photos are as follows


    wiht the simple mods i have made to brawls tank parts they can be moutned into place on the outside of the lower arm ( i am seriously considering using some flat panel lego mini blocks to use as attachment points between the outside surface area of fuumas upper arms and the rear half of the treads that way the back half of tread parts can detach easily and reattach just as easily while still being able to fully support the full weight of the fuuma figure in tank mode

    the tank tread parts can also be transformed into a set of rear mounted thrusters for star fighter mode folks

    He’ll be huge and dwarf your magnus. He’s almost the size of a CHUG Overlord.

    2B16BC8A-E258-49A4-B7D7-23DD42F18591.jpeg Can anyone who has him comment on the color? All the test shots and pictures I’ve ever seen show his color more toward Blue than green. Even the box. As you can see, mine is more toward green, and you can even see the difference on his box behind him. Just wondering if they snuck two colors out...which I highly doubt. This is likely the most accurate, I was just loving that blue.

    Anyone interested in taking this out of my hands for 180 MIB shipped (Con USA only)? Never transformed. Running out of space.

    More green than blue, kind of an aqua. It’s pretty much the exact same color as Carnifex’s shins

    Ok thanks. He’s closer to the color of Hexatron than pictured on the box.

    So I just noticed this. Fuuma has stood on his shelf for a good 3 months now, untouched.
