    We will need to get grifterprime, or ibot in here to view the suggestions. If they're retooling/tweaking these, they should take the time to fix some mechanical issues.

    Both of these need finer toothed ratchets in the hips. They're strong currently, but the detents are way too wide.

    The backpack needs some kind of locking mechanism as well. I have to use the ape hands to hold it in place.

    I agree, let's get more backpack on this fella!

    I think I'll grab these guys, I was always interested but now they've got my attention.

    These are old toys, unfortunately there's not much you can do...

    Is up to other company/es to make new versions of the Horrorcons.

    Good for those of you who missed out on the first run or are re-upping. I like my OG versions and I don't care enough to fork over that much cash to replace them... I'd rather buy the new Bruticon with the show-accurate chest for basically the same amount of money.

    This looks great though! KFC is trying to make 2022 their year

    This. Indents NEVER fit and they only ruin things for those of us who try to put logos on. BLANK SPACE, not indents.

    Man... My wallet didn't need to see this. The gray was my biggest gripe about these. Both of these were the most solid releases. I need to pick them up.

    If I were to buy this, and don't get me wrong, I really do want to, it be just to keep it in jet mode. That one mode blows the Hasbro Siege one to shameful ashes. And I really do love my Siege Apeface, I just hate his jet mode. But I don't want to buy it just for the jet mode only. Maybe I can compromise and see if there's a more accurate jet mode Apeface in the cheaper legends scale.
