    Can someone point to a single post that sums up what pegs need sanding? I don't mind having to do it so long as I know which ones I'm doing.

    I dont think there has been a summary post. I remember people saying the foot hole for gulf was tight (i think, he is an arm on mine so dont know for sure). I had to sand down the pegs on overbites gun. My overbite has some really tight holes.The hole on the trident piece that came with Tentakil is too tight (or the peg on Overbites sword was too big) and cracked for me so I sanded out the hole some to hopefully prevent any further cracking.

    I haven’t had anything crack for me, and will probably keep him in combined mode (with Overbite as the back-piece) in perpetuity. Knowing others had issues, I was so incredibly ginger with mine, it took me at least an hour to put him fully together and on the shelf. Besides some typical looseness in his thighs and in Tentakil’s peg-hole, I think all-in-all, this guy is a fantastic addition to my collection!

    With my experience, all I needed to sand was Lobclaw's foot peg and Tentakil's sword hole.

    If you have floor polish or anything else to tighten parts, however I definitely recommend using it on...
    • the peg connecting Lobclaw's tail/gun to the same foot port,
    • Tentakil's leg mode port,
    • the hips and knees of whoever you're using as arms,
    • the small pegs connecting Turtler's shield to King Poseidon's chest,
    • the connection holding KP's thumbs in place, and
    • Turtler's bicep/KP's thigh swivel

    You might be onto something. Might be different factory sections in Vietnam. One for JP/Asia and one for HBPulse. But using different material? We can only speculate.

    Ordered spike pieces for his fists from Shapeways, they look pretty good.

    I have the same question... maybe black magic, invisible flight stand or something like that...

    Edit: Added pic. Mine can barely hold the Sword up. At least the legs are semi stable. 20200524_032059.jpg

    I'm mixed feelings - I might keep the Seacons in individual alt mode, and have God Neptune in combined form. If I do put Seacons together, it would be holding a sword or weapon, and not the 6th member as a weapon - I never cared for that, and not being able to hold it up is just another strike against that anyway.

    No stand needed, and Skalor still transforms just fine. Here's a post with all my CW combiner fixes, including floppy elbows.

    A coelacanth is not the kind of fish you’d want to sink your teeth into. Any chance you can make some shark fin soup instead?

    I've only had to do it with Gulf's limb port and Tentakil's right head gun port (both of which were too small).

    On the other end of the spectrum Lobclaw's tail piece peg was slightly too small and Kraken's limb port slightly too big (hand and feet are a little too ready to fall out, but they'll never crack the port).
