    Should have gotten both today. Checked the package, only Greasepit. Checked the shipping info, 1 package. Sent an email asking what's up

    Finally had a chance to look over these two after work. Found I had an assembly error on my Exhaust. Don't know if others have had this problem as well. Have gotten behind on alot of threads. If this has already been addressed, just think of this as a friendly reminder on how to fix it. Pretty easy.
    After I transformed him I noticed the two black squares on his front end didn't match.

    Upon closer inspection underneath I noticed the armature holding the foot to the ankle was on upside down. The one on the left. The proper way(on the right) has a square-ish indent.
    0723200325-1.jpg
    I removed the ankle, just pops off, and the foot from the armature(same, just pops off). I next removed the pin so I could rotate the arm piece around. Make sure you push the pin out in the right direction so can see the knurled end as you push it out.

    The way it needs to look before re-assembly. Push the pin all the way back in.
    0723200330-1.jpg
    Popped the foot onto the armature then the leg. Now both have the square-ish indent facing down.
    0723200332-1.jpg
    Now the black square is properly lined up.

    Hopes this helps anyone that has the same thing. Sorry about the crappy cell phone pics. Best I can do.

    I ordered mine as soon as they went up and got them 2 days ago. They look fantastic, Hasbro distribution is a mess right now. They are experiencing insane delays on the magic the gathering side.

    There's enough space to sticker over it.

    Did we ever get official word, is there a plan to fix the typo on a further batch or was it intentional?

    Homage to the misspelling of "malboor" on the original Exhuast

    I know many of us assumed that, but did Hasbro actually SAY it was intentional? If they did, I missed it...

    Some obscure references should stay buried.

    I remember it being mentioned in one of the fan first fridays as being a John Warden inside joke of something like that.

    Toy designer Stoner Mark outright said that the Bandit & Exhaust decals were "Johnny Warden specials", and "you'd have to ask him about them" in the Fan Friday Stream which pretty much lampshaded that they are intentional, and that "Exhuast" is a nod to "Marlboor". What exactly "Bandit" refers to as a ref I'm still not 100%?

    Watch the Slag Podcast’s segment on them. Protoman explains that all of the different tampos are based off real cigarette companies.

    I can't begin to tell you how much I love that he's a gas station. I never owned the original base, so this is new to me and just so damned... he's a gas station. :D  I just love it.

    Got my Exhaust from Hasbro Pulse in yesterday, glad to finally have an official version of him. Feels good to retire the two customs that were standing in for him from the Generations and Combiner Wars figures.

    I got the nonnef upgrades for Exhaust and Wheeljack

    Want to get an Actionmaster Slicer from the Wheeljack mold too!

    Customs look great (and I am not a custom guy). Still love the original generations mold the best. With any luck my order will be here someday. I think the whole Hasbro Pulse membership would be great if they didn't go with Fedex shipping. I don't worry too much about getting my packages (and I know it is covid season), but that cheap Fedex shipping has got to be the worst service available. My delivery status has officially been updated from 7/28 to "pending". For some reason with me they are lucky to get it within a week of their estimated delivery day, which wouldn't be a huge issue if they didn't deliver it to the wrong house 1/2 the time.
