Thank you. Did you have any issues with clearance in either mode? What did you think overal?
I got the same kit and it fit both modes perfectly fine.
Nice one, thanks for replying.
What do you think of the 3D printed plate? Some 3D printed stuff looks fine, some looks rough
It definitely has a matte, knurled texture, but it doesn't feel out of place to me. Was worried when I ordered it wouldn't match the anesthetic, but I'm pleased with it and it's worth it for the light feature.
There's a custom backpack for POTP Optimal Optimus discussed on Primal Sabbath video.
He mentioned he got it from taobao but no further info after that.
If anyone know where I can get one a link would be awesome.
Looks different to the one you sometimes see on ebay a bit bigger and a little less 3D printed looking. & closer to the shape of the original toy.
I put my thoughts in my review post earlier. Our copy didn't have clearance for alt mode, so YMMV. There is a straightforward mod to make it work by thinning out the head plate, which doesn't affect external appearance. So far, working well after modding the head plate.
I got the Go Better kits for Primal and Inferno over the weekend. For Primal, I'm not big on the jetpack and how it needs to be removed to transform, but the chest gap filler works great, addressing my biggest complaint with the figure in the first place. So overall I dig it.
Inferno's kit is similarly good, but I'm not surprised since I got their kit for Grapple. It's a little weird that Inferno didn't get the belly piece Grapple did, but whatever. My only real complaint is that I wish they'd mirrored the forearm communicator part, just for symmetry.
Can the jetpack be stored anywhere in gorilla mode?
I can still get to the zx Grimlock link?

Unless the listing disappeared and reappeared.
Not that I could find. Like I said, it's a bummer but I didn't really buy the kit for the jetpack, I bought it for the chest gap filler. And that works great and stays on during transformation, so I still call it a win.
Picked up the Matrix Workshop upgrade kit for SS86 Kup. Pretty solid!
Technically, yes, if you transform the back flap like bot mode, but the jetpack must still be removed in order to transform (blocks waist turning and chest opening steps).
Do the pegs actually work? Starting to hear on their newest sets that they may actually fit. MW is notoriously the worst offender in having kits that don't work due to fitting problems (now only rivaled by how bad 115 Utopia has gotten).
Pre-orders for 115 ER Ratchet set is starting to show up. Just beware of fitting issues, which is unfortunately common across the board now for 115 (pegs too big, ports too small, not working out of box). The Ironhide version of their kit was also laughably bad in alt mode in terms of leaving huge gaps, so I passed.

This also is not their other announced kit which has repair bay type add-ons.
The other Ratchet feet by ? group looks a lot more promising than this, which will hopefully arrive in the mail by the end of the month.
Possibly it did as it wasn't showing for me at all in the general Upgrades listing yesterday :S
I think the other Ratchet feet are the ones to go for as there doesn't appear to be a partsforming aspect.
Replacement for my missing Go Better set for Inferno and the Kingdom Megatron set arrived today and I'm VERY happy with both. Great fit and colour matching with Inferno...
...and also for Megatron. Good stuff indeed. Just waiting on my SS86 Jazz set now.
Got these Magnus fillers in yesterday, but of a tight fit on one of the shoulder pieces but everything went together and looks great
I don’t have any issues with the fit of the pegs so far.
That's great to hear! I always worry when I make kits with this many pieces, so it's nice to hear that nothing is just falling out!
Nope, nothing falling out at all. Was worried about the one shoulder piece going it, but got it back out, reseated it and it's working good
Anyone know if they’ll do the earthrise ratchet/ironhide gap filler set in shattered glass colors?
There's a new Go Better Huffer kit announced. Looks a lot better than the Tim Heada kit. However, of course, weibo is having issues and can't link the video atm.
Ok, finally able to access the site...on mobile, then copied over link:
