    They're probably playing with them in the sandbox.

    Pain in the ass to pose, but it's not a deal breaker for me. I love him

    I want to buy the devastator. How did you have it shipped? Via a broker or some third party shipper? I want to save on shipping as much as possible but still minimize the risk of the package being crushed.

    Thanks.

    Very top heavy, that crane and/or his big gun is practically needed to help balance him from tilting over. And is it just my copy or the waist swivel quite 'slippery'?

    It's a little on the looser side, it could be tighter. I'm gonna look into making him more solidified and poseable.

    3rd party shipper... shipper just gets a small fee for the updates and helps in any problematic matters at china warehouse side and delivery.. I still pay for the shipping n item cost

    but calculated still cheaper than getting from my local sellers

    Thanks. Did you use EMS or some other shipping method?

    Long Haul's fists once moved to the back of Devy do tend to pop out easily during waist swivels.

    On my copy, the 4 screws inside MixMaster's drum was so tight that I could not push in the drum arms in for transformation, had to loosen them first.

    The combiner ports and pegs were also screwed in so tightly that they were impossible to flip out, luckily one side of the screws are easily accessed to be loosened up and tightened back once combined.

    For those wondering about ankle tilt for Scrapper's leg mode, remember to flip out his waist tabs to enable it.

    Isn't it a problem with the ratchets' dents ? I tried to unscrew Long Haul's but it was still ultra tight

    Most probably, but unscrewing them slightly helped me to flip them out. It's also quite awkward to use a tool to leverage them out as the surrounding plastic (the green housing) is thin enough to flex and I didn't want to cause stress. Once I managed to flip them one one click I had to combine the bots and use the entire limb/torso to lever each port/peg out fully.

    looking at Dev, mixmaster's legs aren't straight and his cab isn't collapsed. If you don't have them straight and cab collapsed, it can force you to either lean him forward or bend the knee to keep Devy straight.

    May make it better or worse to pose in combined mode for you, depending on who you ask. Just figured I'd throw that out there if you haven't tried fiddling with those parts.

    I wonder what JinBao’s next combiner will be... I’ve heard the rumors about Uranos but honestly if it’s going to be a TFC combiner id personally prefer Poseidon.
