    The ball peg in the shoulder area was too tight on some copies and the ring the ball goes in would split. The new arms were definitely smoother when I installed them, even though my OG arms didn't break.

    No, I missed it. Every time I’m almost able to find that figure, I lose out

    Any other recommended TLC points for these bots? My copy of Merak definitely has some tight spots on his grabby arms that are calling out for shock oil.

    My Blastoff has stress marks on the bicep mushroom pegs, so if you have that one maybe add oil there. They’re not even that tight on mine, might’ve already been there for all I know. But just an FYI. The heads on my Drift/Deadlock pair are tight too and could also use oil if you have those

    just the usual couple of drops of oil and that is about it.

    be mindful of any stress marks. i think i remember like 2 cases of the arms cracking off or user error when this came out.

    I might be alone in this but I'd love to see iron factory take on legends scale unicron trilogy designs. I'd prefer that to the samurai line they have going, personally. And it would be a nice nod as the ut gave us our first legends scale figures

    My plan is brilliant.
    1. You'll wreak havoc and create chaos.
    2. The witless humans will blame the Autobots.
    3.
    4. Profit!

    i hope they can make the shatter class version of the 30 mold later. Already order the 30d, but just because i love this mold and late for the original color.
    If it recolor i rather have the dark green, and lightter dar, some yellow detail. For the record the IF ex 14m, 45m look damn stunning. This color look so boring.
    There is a whole univeser of shatter class right ? so they can technically make every of their figure with that color, isn't it ?

    Wow, that looks beautiful. I'm honestly tempted to get him, even though I already have normal Cygnus.

    Is that...Nacelle? I don't recall him having so much blue?

    Imagine Iron Factory decided to do a version 2.0 of the seeker mold. I would have to go for broke lol.

    Was never a big fan of recolors, but the IF's seeker mold is so good. I have the original trio and plan on getting Nacelle. Seeker 2.0 will be a good reason to get the rainmakers maybe
