    I still feel like Celeritas is the weakest of the bunch. The wheels not locking in place when you remove the gun clips looks bad enough that I haven't bothered since trying it the first time. I also wish they had made the windshield part on his back slide up further to fill in the hole back there.

    I think Blindfire is my favorite of the set. Several reasons why, but these are the three highlights other than "looks cool, very poseable, feels solid in hand":

    - transformation is easy and intuitive (and, for the record, manages to basically be an update to the transformation of the original figure, right down to the part where the fists slide into the legs)
    - Shoulder pegs allow you to do a fun tribute to the original figure's alt mode (which used the guns as the two "booms" at the front of the ship)
    - He's the freaking VIC VIPER

    Hey Predacon, can I ask how you are attaching the drill to the hand in this pic?
    [​IMG]

    Just curious since, as far as I know, the official way of connecting it is to slide the drill onto the gun while its being held in his hand. And in your pics its clear that you aren't using that attachment point since you have the gun completely folded away from the hand.

    I don't have a good pic of how it attaches, but you can sort of get the idea from this one.

    Also, if anyone's interested, check out this thread I started. Some neat things in there.

    You need to fold the fist in and expand the base of the drill and attach it into the forearm like a glove. Then close the base around the wrist for security.

    ^^^ Oh, so it's just held in place by friction. And it holds tight enough? Cool, thanks for sharing.
