    Now this may be me as it was a rush job during work hours, but in the pic the back plate is folded down, but you can leave it up I think. The main blades don't seem to tab anywhere, my one running complaint with this line, and seem to float about on the pistons. If I get chance after the little'n is in bed I'll try to get a few more pics up.
    The axe blades are clipped to the end of the shovel, but not too tight and keep falling off.

    So a few more pics here then, missing out imgur as its being a pain.

    I've swiveled the blades so they look like shoulder pads which is probably the right way to do it, but as soon as you try for anything a bit dynamic its kibble city and messes up the sculpt/silhouette.
    There are loads of joints in the blades overall, but the whole assembly moves on a single hinge (bottom RHS of 1st pic on the forearm) and it feels a bit shaky tbh.

    Heads are a bit of a pain to swap on Bonecrusher due to clearance too.
    I found it was easier to take the screw out and then wiggle the bottom of the head around to get more clearance on the ball joint.
    It them pops right off without needing to take it all apart. I applied a bit of silicone lube on the new ones in case I ever want to swap back.

    The limbs are MP Carbot scaled and MM is the size of MP-10, so if you've got a scale reference for those and GB, there you go.

    These guys are a bit smaller, but they nail the proportions down, but TW on the other hand tend to be off a bit. TW Scavengerand Bone-Crusher proportion are spot on for the most part with the exception of combined mode where their limb mode makes them Gorilla arms. As for their Scrapper and Mixmaster, their legs are way off. The shins are massive and look odd when bent at any angle.

    On top of that MM back and head kibble just looks cheap to me. their vehicle modes look amazing, it's the robot mode and combine mode where it falls apart for me.

    Just got bulldozer today!
    I had ordered him almost a month ago from Bababobo, but it got lost in the mail. He was about to reship it, but amazingly it showed up.

    Great toy, loving the line. The shoulder plates are a touch awkward to pose, and the same lack of tabs on the arm panels as the other members, but those are just minor nitpicks. He's badass.

    Only two more to go!

    Yep, Hong Kong. Reputable when i was using them. The shipping started getting cost prohibitive. But at one point, it was cheaper, cost plus shipping to order from RK, AND you'd get your product a week to two weeks before the NA sites got theirs. Those were good times.
