    Not to confuse you with the title of this topic, but Toyhax/reprolabels have made a set of stickers for Titans Return Fort Max that I'm currently slapping on my Takara set; but I can't use the stickers for their "alternate" base mode cause I can't get the legs to split apart like Gen. Metroplex. It might be possible that Takara Tomy has glued down the leg panels to make 'em a little more sturdy and to prevent any mods here; or maybe I'm just not trying hard enough. Either way, has anyone else with the Takara version noticed this too? :(

    Someone has pointed this out on the LG-31 News and Rumors thread. I noticed that I can't easily open mine up either. I'd rather not attempt to open his legs for fear of breaking something.

    The sad part is that those alternate base mode stickers were the only ones in that reprolabels set that were not ugly as F*@#.

    I love reprolabels, but they really dropped the ball on Max and on most of their TR sets so far, imo. Just ugly gaudy garbage.

    Dam, that's a bummer. Well now it's a bit more unique on metroplex.
