What hands did you use?
KFC for MP Sideswipe.
This happens if people just pushes in the shoulder to tab onto the chest piece. To avoid this, you need to lift the chest piece away from the body, and then slot in the shoulder piece onto the notch on the chest piece.
Has anybody gotten theirs from hasbro Pulse? Mine is showing September. Why is Hasbro's own store so late?
They're not late, Hasbro's store uses the actual estimated release dates, while other stores have been getting stuff early
They always are. No special treatment there, for sure.
So online copies have the low shoulders while in store copies are fixed?
Nope. Mix of both from both venues, with correct shoulders being the minority so far.
Looking like that, I would have bought him, despite the other things I don't like. But like these I like him enough to shell out money. I still hope we get a repaint. Maybe by Takara. I don't know. Until we're not getting a repaint like that, I prefer Legends Galvatron. Soul patch should also be painted and the belt buckle red, than he'd be perfect and only would need better looking feet
He needs a different crown too. It's on it's own separate piece so I suspect on of the repaints will have a different one.
Thanks, but I do not see enough clearance for me to pull down the chest piece downwards so that I can slot in the shoulder piece onto the notch on the chest piece? Is the slot in method you mention like the combiner war that type of slot in? If yes, definitely there is no enough clearance to do so.
You just need enough room to flex the plastic and be able to slot it in.
Another thing you can do is paint that area that's red on the hip panels. Paint the wider area instead of the little square they painted. It really helps make that shape more familiar.
I was also tinkering with the idea of cutting off the "tubes" and making the top flat.
What's wrong with the crown?
Same here. I’m really impressed with the figure. It’s not perfect but it’s just a lot of fun. I don’t think any photos do it justice.
Yeah, I said it earlier that he, for some reason, doesn't photograph very well but in-hand, he's great.
The prongs on the crown aren’t curved, and are way too short/stumpy. I suppose they could be a loose homage to the G1 toy, but the Kingdom release is clearly going for a more TFTM inspired look…
I was thinking about adding a replacement head to the list as well, but decided against it. Yup, the crown is not so cool, Venksta's head for TR/Legends Galvatron did it better. Also the face looks too long (but that's a common theme in the current toys). Venksta's head is one of the reasons why I still like my Legends Galvatron a lot more.
