    My favourite micromaster patrols were the military, rescue and off road patrol. My favourites from each were tote, seawatch and sunrunner and each was one of the two not done from each set.

    I don't know if saving the franchise counts as a drunken stumble?

    It didnt save the franchise, the franchise wasn't in need of being saved. Sure it was a fuckin line of coke and ramped the franchise to peaks it never reached before but saved is stretching it

    I’m gonna try to rig a shoulder mount with that port on his back with a sideswipe cannon. Should work. Idk why hasbro dropped the ball on that.

    Is anyone just getting this set for grimlock? I'd take mirage alone from someone because i don't really mind the drawbacks of the mold

    I wonder if drilling into that new shoulder would compromise anything. But either way , still getting it

    Eh, no big loss since I'm not a completionist. I went ahead and cancelled my Amazon Preorder. Money saved.

    The lack of a shoulder port is really disappointing, but I'd rather just get him and buy a $7 upgrade to mount it near the shoulder. I've not seen Siege Mirage for a price I'm willing to pay for him, and even if I did, I don't trust that translucent plastic in the legs. Plus, his vehicle mode just doesn't look right to me.

    Haven't cancelled quite yet. Wonder if the Cliffjumper gun piece would work as well for this fix?

    Absolutely for all you said! Also, Seawatch was excellent: his pseudo-cybertronian boat mode is one of my favorite ! In addition, a naval bot would be great to have on the box the first naval command military insignia!
