    So, I’ve been peripherally aware of the fact that there’s apparently some issue with Legacy Shrapnel’s feet? Like they are reversed? I can’t for the life of me find any posts about it, though.

    Could someone catch me up on what the issue with the feet is? Thanks very much!

    You the purple accessories that look like guns or feet depending on which angle you tilt your head? So, they are EVER so slightly different from each other if you look at the toes… or at least they should be. Some of the Shrapnels have shipped with feet/pistols that are the same while others have shipped with feet/pistols that are mirrored (as intended). There’s also some information about the number stamped on them, but that part was too confusing because there are two numbers that correspond to the left foot and two that correspond to the right one which is probably how the whole mess happened to begin with.

    In any case, it’s an incredibly minor difference that only the most detail-oriented would even notice let alone get anxious about, but your mileage may vary. (and as someone who got a complete set, I’m in no position to criticize anyone else!)

    Ohh!!! Thank you so much, that is a very clear explanation. And a relief... all this time I thought people were talking about his actual bot-mode feet (you know, the ones attached with massive flat-head pins that would be a huge pain to remove, haha). Didn't realize it was just the accessory gun-foot things!

    Also, looking at mine it appears I got lucky and got a proper mirror-image set as well. Sorry for folks who didn't, that's a bummer.

    Thanks again for the explanation!

    Twincast freakin' rocks (or bops, whichever you groove with).

    This is such an impressive expression, looks simultaneously devious and joyful. I really wish that one-off Blaster with this face became an actual variant (and also used on SG Blaster) because Blaster, of all characters, probably shouldn't be Mr. Stoic most of the time. That quirked eye look just screams "running counter-intelligence against Soundwave/Soundblaster" or "dropping a hot mix to get down to".
    IMG_1566.jpeg
    Edit: I forgot Marvel Comics Blaster started out as the brooding type, but the serious face still doesn't quite work since it's the cartoon model's head. Just a partially-related thought that doesn't affect my original statement.

    Obviously the boom box mode is awesome, too.

    The only thing I would change about Twincast is I wish his weapon was red like the vintage figure.

    Completely agree with that sentiment, it's an almost perfect figure otherwise.

    Yeah, the cassettes being made out of translucent plastic was a weird and dumb choice in service of their whole "energon weapons" gimmick that never looks good IMO.

    (Sideways' shins are mostly to blame)

    I really wanted to shove a WFC Micromaster on Hot Shot as a substitute for Jolt, but the ones I tried were just too wide to fit...
