    Where are you supposed to sand the pegs, again? Like, is there a specific area on the pegs?

    It's actually the peg holes being a little too small that's the problem; the best fix is to get a 5mm drill bit and twirl it into the holes until they're the right size. I did not know this when I did mine and just cut off the wide bottom of the pegs.

    In my case, I just took a pocket knife and shaved off plastic from all sides of the pegs until they were even (so essentially, I reduced the circumference of each peg). It's shame that the peg issues still persist on this release of the mold, but damn, that cherry red plastic looks great.

    He really looks incredible. Hasbro should offer him up at a discount for anyone who bought that hideous PotP Inferno :p

    So, is the problem that they’re hexagonal, and their shape is too big for the hole?

    Need to see if I can find some other hoses for him. Maybe Ectotron or Shockwaves hoses would work with him?

    Pegs are round, ports are hexagonal. The ports are warped, and a little too narrow. The pegs are the correct 5mm; they are however only fully round at the bottom and have a plastic-saving hollow cavity running up the side. That's probably a contributing factor in them shearing off in the holes, since they aren't solid.

    Edit: they're exactly like the peg on Cliffjumper's bazooka skid:

    The fix a lot of people were doing was to cut off that little lip, with the effect of making the peg narrower.

    This is how you properly update a design. Well done.

    Wow, that truck mode sure is just a box with wheels and some fire engine greeblies slapped on it.

    like, even moreso than G1 Inferno\'s fire truck mode was just a box with greeblies on it.

    I never expected to like Grapple as much as I did! Now I\'m really looking forward to Inferno!

    So no water spray? :( 

    Wish I could see how the head fins are attached. They really should be white. Would like to see if there\'s a way to easily detach them and either paint them or replace them with a 3P.

    I have every version of the Classics mold and will plan to get every version of this mold as well. Looks fantastic, and with how much I enjoy Grapple I am sure this one will be a winner as well.
    Now for Artfire, Hot Spot, Pyro, Hauler...
