    Don't know if it has been said yet, but judging by the picture. It seems that the connections at the knee fold up or collapse somehow so the arms have room to properly attach. The devy gun spits apart for the combination also.

    Thanks buddy! Absolutely pic your favourite saxsolo/intro!:D 

    I couldn't see anything in the instructions but it pegs in the side of the shin/leg in combined mode (I'll try and take a pic today if it's not clear, I think there's a port on each side). It's not official but at least it's somewhere to not lose the little bugger!

    Yeah, this is indeed the "official" gun storage spot for Scrapper's combined mode :)  both sides of the leg as @Zherneboh said.

    That's a really cool find :thumb  it even lifts the cab a tad to make the alt mode look even more accurate (if that's one's thing).

    There is a way to store guns in alt mode same as in that bilibili video but swap their guns because mix's gun is smaler. Scraper's gun barrel is a bit long but inside mix it does not touch the ground.

    There we go!.

    Scrapper is a little bit frustrating because is not intuitive. Mixmaster is pure love. Now MST achieved a complexity level higher than never. These are a TOTAL masterpiece figures, compressed and small. :lol

    Great pics! These 2 are awesome (I didn't have any trouble with Scrapper transformation though :D )

    USPS delivered my set in yesterday from Showz. Only other figures I ever bought from Magic Square were the Stunticons and I loved them. Got this set in and I'm out for the rest; I just can't get over the materials used. All the details/edges just looks dull on them due to the nylon. Same reason I stopped after (I think it was DX9's) Ironhide and Blurr 2-pack. Shame too, the silhouette and transformation on these two are amazing. Again my opinion, for those who prefer the nylon, this set hits it out of the park.

    Hey, could someone that owns these two and some MFT bots like Inferno/Grapple do a direct size comparison, or maybe just post an exact robot height in CMs? Thanks in advance.

    So one of Scrappers wheels is all wobbly because the pin didn't go all the way in the plastic. I think I heard of some method where you heat the pin to push it in more. Any ideas?

    Anybody know what the purpose of this crotch joint is? Doesn't seem to be utilized in any mode, or during transformation.

    I had that issue with one of my stunticons.
    I just squeezed it a bit with some pliers to push the pin through some more. I think I cut a piece of eraser the size of the pin head to allow me to put pressure on just that area. But really any kind of tiny object should do. Just squeeze gently until the pin is in far enough, you don’t want to overdo it and get the wheel too tight.

    well that isnt so bad. you can just set the back against something solid and tap the pin down with a screwdriver and use another one or a hammer to hit it in.

    just make sure you keep that tab free. when it is on the block or whatever you use.

    The bot modes look pretty good. The more I see of the alt modes the less I like them. They just don't evoke the nostalgia for the toy aesthetic that would draw me to the vehicle modes. Depending how the rest of the team turns out, these might do better in botmode or combined mode.

    That’s a nice fit. Do the MFTs look too large with the other bots? I got their ultra Magnus and he’s huge.

    yes, Grapple and Inferno are a little bit taller as Motormaster, so for sunbow scale it will never work.
    With posing and certain set ups you can get away with it.
    I also look at what the alt modes are so The Headmasters and Tripple changers can be bigger for me.
    Same with grapple and inferno, I do not mind that MFT is bigger, they are trucks after all.

    If the others suggestions of simply applying more force isn't enough, you can heat up something else like the tip of a punch with a torch (or some other form of intense heat) and then touch it to the pin head a couple times. The heat will transfer to the pin in the wheel enough to melt its way back in, fully set, without damaging the plastic. At least, in my experience that's how it worked out.

    That method also works in reverse, if you want to remove something pinned in/pressed on.
