    that is correct. it was for scraper.

    I had the original GT scraper with spring loaded hands and I much prefer the JB version.

    In which mode? I found a way to clip it into place on top of Long Haul in vehicle mode, and there's a space just behind his head in robot mode which lets you insert the gestalt handle to make a shoulder/back mounted artillery cannon. I even found one way to backmount it in gestalt mode, though it does rely on Long Haul's pistol to give it something to hang off, so it can be knocked loose fairly easily when posing the gestalt.

    Sure! Will do
    Still need to touch up on that.

    In general, I need to work on the rust effects

    awesome work mate!

    did you prime the figure? I'm always wary about painting transformerable figures as the primer, paint, and clear finish would've added a few more mm to the surface and thus hinders transforming once they're done.

    unless you intend to keep them in combined mode?

    Ok I kept them in their combined mode, just split up the arms/legs/torso, and used Mr Hobby flat matte coating as my primer before painting. Then once everything is done, I would then use the flat matte coating again to seal it up

    20191001_002821.jpg 20191001_002807.jpg 20191001_002740.jpg Finally got around to installing the upgrade kit. I'm so glad that he can actually stand on his own now. However, still no where near as stable as I would like. Also the arms are so weak that I think I transformed something wrong. This is the best pose I can seem to get out of this guy. Looks wise, very very impressive.

    Just got around installing the replacement parts (inc. head, it just looks more G1, no leg extenders), and it's 100% woth it. No more wobly waist, tighter knee, allot less work to balance this (top heavy) Devy now. Once positioned I can pick it up and set it down without rebalancing, and it stands straight up now ;)

    Does the add-on kit do more than just work for the gestalt mode?

    Just got the rest of this set in today! Already applied faction symbols to most of them but I am scratching my head over Long Haul. Where the heck is he supposed to have a Decepticon symbol in bot mode? Shoulder maybe???

    And speaking of Long Haul, has anyone here had issues with him being able to stand? Looks like his feet are connected to ball joints and his weight just overpowers what little friction there is. I've gotten some fun poses out of him but man did I have to fiddle to get him to balance right.

    Feet-on-ball-joints seems to be a thing these days, and I don't quite know why. I guess try some clear nail polish, or Future Finish, or super glue, or something?

    Where did you put the symbols on each of them? Don't have them in front of me atm so not sure which ones were obvious, but I know I was having difficulty finding the proper spot for them on some, just like you.

    Can confirm, I used nail polish on Long Haul's foot balljoints to stiffen them up and that's worked well enough.
