    Sorry if that bad joke was too much. I won't do that stupid thing.

    Now I'm connecting some of my oversea friends to see if they can help me get this set eventually.

    Am I the only one to have this issue? This part of my Overbites arm was off in the box. I’m not sure if this is normal or not, but I can’t get the other arm piece to come off. It even looks like there might have supposed to have been a pin here that’s missing? The piece slides back into place and holds ok, so it’s not the end of the world. But it’s odd so I wanted to check with others. 263E4F0C-43AA-493D-AF5E-69177601983D.jpeg 91F871D6-B3C2-447E-AF04-08A19F302FA9.jpeg
    Also, one of the posts that keeps his robot/arm mode legs in place was shorter than the other, so one robot leg doesn’t lock into place, and the shark head seems to sit really loose on its friction pegs. I know others experienced qc issues with the set, but baring a bit of floppiness with Tentakil this is the first major issue I’ve had with them.

    Nope. That's an issue across-the-board. Needs a pin to hold it in, but they didn't for some reason. He's a floppy mess and doesn't hold together well.

    That's just Tak-Tom's new standard QC right there. See also God Bomber, Dai Atlas, Ginrai, most recent Masterpiece...

    As stated before this isn't a unique thing. There was never intended to be a pin. If you have POTP Rippersnapper, he also doesn't have the pin in that spot!

    Interesting....well regardless my King Poseidon/Piranacon is complete! I’ve used Seawing for the gun, because he allowed me to store all the other guns on him alone (except for Skalor’s shoulder cannons), making a super weapon. 65DDE29C-DDC4-43B4-898F-D7AD90ADF37C.jpeg 23452B0E-F090-4365-BE77-4A65EFCF3594.jpeg

    This also means that if friction isn't enough to keep the shoulder in place, you can carefully glue it there and shouldn't have any issues.

    Fun Fact: PotP Rippersnapper had the exact same thing. No pin, but held in pretty well by friction. I believe the only guy who has this joint pinned is Nautilator/Lobclaw, and that's because he's the only guy who's beast mode expects you to pop that out so his claws can spread far enough out in beast mode to clear his head.

    I've seen a few other people who's Overbite arms slid out, but mine doesn't appear to have that issue at this time.

    Then yes, you missed the boat. I was going to suggest a few sites that have it for in between retail and that, but nm.

    Sets are going for $500 plus on Ebay now.

    The only reason you might try to avoid glueing it solid is that the right-side shoulder bracket hides access to a screw. If you ever think you'll need to get in there, be very sparing with the glue. Just a tiny bit that will hold the part in place, without being completely unbreakable.

    Per wikipedia:
    Coelacanth flesh has high amounts of oil, urea, wax esters, and other compounds that give the flesh a distinctly unpleasant flavor, make it difficult to digest and can cause diarrhea. Their scales themselves emit mucus, which combined with the excessive oil their bodies produce, make coelacanths a slimy food.

    Which pairs PERFECTLY with his G1 bio.

    TFSource shipped my last 2 & they'll be delivered on Wednesday. Hasbropulse created a shipping label for my second Overbite but it hasn't actually shipped yet.

    Came up with this fan mode after being frustrated at the elbow’s inability to hold a targetmaster member on it.

    Pretty sweet fan mode. The ability to customize the figures in the latest lines is a real plus. I'm amazed how many different ways you can usually arm a figure now yet the figures aren't obviously riddled with extra parts or unsightly marks in order to do so. The engineering has been fantastic, even if the final plastic execution is sometimes lacking.

    One thing they definitely need to work on is weapon balance. When something is designed to hold a heavy weapon, there is no excuse for not designing joints strong enough to do so. It isn't hard or expensive so I'm at a loss for why this has been a problem for so long and continues to be a problem.

    Thanks!! Despite all the technical blunders, I really do enjoy playing with the configurations. Though, really wish they would move on from Combiner Wars and give us new combiner engineering already. Those molds are getting repetitive.
