    Got my GT01B yesterday so I didn't have time to transform Scraper to show all the labels so far :D  Here's one example though, in alt-mode.

    And one of them together - nothing new but whatever!

    As for the paint, well, I've never painted one figure in my life before so not really sure I know where to start - or even if I should bother...

    Edit: guess you have to rotate your monitor 180 degrees for the first pic - not my doing ;)

    Emphy, who was your retailer? I bought a Navvy and it had a really bad scratch on it and my retailer replaced the part for me after I told them about it.

    That would be bababobo00712 on Ebay. Really great seller btw, ordered Mixer on 31st of March, April 8th at my post office (Netherlands) - even though those f*ckers didn't notify me about it :)

    Hmm, never dealt with them, you might drop them a line.

    Normally, I wouldn't care myself or just repaint it the best I could, but these are 100 dollar figures. Blargh to that.

    So, I got my bulldozer today. I....tend to agree with people, the shoulder pads are a bit....unfinished. There's actually a bit of unfinished parts on the arms, namely the shoulder pads, and the grill, neither of which tab in securely. I think if the shoulder pads tabbed in securely, that would hurt poseability, but I think the grill could've been a bit more secure. It's not a bad figure, but it is the least best.

    Yeah, it's not an issue that causes headaches but like you said, for this kind of money it ought to be at least in mint condition. Dropped the seller a line, asking if he can help out here.

    A paint suggestion was given a few posts back, but to be honest I wouldn't even know where to get it, with decent delivery time and shipping costs (Netherlands). If I'm gonna have to spend $30 to fix a minor paint scratch, well, meh. And that's besides actually painting it such that it improves the figure. Not sure my motor skills allow for that, hehe.

    Gonna transform my Scraper and Mixer now to bot mode /afk :D

    Where do you guys get your waterslide decals? Are they pretty easy to apply? Never did it before.

    Got mine from eBay Waterslide Decals Transformers AND Decepticon Waterslide Decals | eBay

    Should arrive within 2 weeks.

    Pretty straight forward to apply these decals. Just remember to give it a light clear coat (Tamiya spray can) to seal the decals once they're on.

    For me:

    1. Mixing Truck
    2. Navvy
    3. Scraper
    4. Bulldozer

    Scraper would be higher up but I'm not a fan of the mid thigh joints and loose hip flaps. I think Mixmaster is pretty underrated.

    All four of them to me, have minor tweaks that I would love to see fixed but they're not deal breakers in the least.

    In order of release:

    Scraper - Hip Skirts, though I did buy some nice ones from Shapeways to replace the original ones. I... I just can't find them! LOL

    Mixing Truck - I don't like how loose his barrel is when opened. Some sort of joints or locking points would have been awesome.

    Navvy - Not a fan of the visible head in alt mode.

    Bulldozer - Not a fan of the blade layout. Shoulder issues don't bother me, but there's so many moving parts for the blade in alt mode that don't really click firmly, so when you want to move the blade up, you're moving at least six different parts separately to make it happen.

    But I love them all, and they're all wonderful.

    just performed the scraper upgrades. not sure if im slow but it took me about 60 minutes total, judging by the number of cleveland/american dad episodes that went by.

    and well fucking worth it. i think i may finish the set now as well.

    thank you chosen prime. you were my only hope.

    edit - emgos video on the repairs was incredibly annoying. he must have iterated his his feelings that they were unnecessary every 30 seconds. i made it 5 minutes before i found another vid.

    God yes. The laughter, the sucking in his breath, and the lame jokes. Terrible.
