    Got my Hauler today and when trying to go I to vehicle mode the tab that goes into the cab snapped the piece inside the cab.

    Anyone else have issues?

    Did MFT make a Twincast colored version of their "Emitter"?

    Not yet - but I have no clue what that small gun is for or if he's supposed to have a filler piece in the back of his head or not ?

    I want to get a Legends Blaster and MFT is my main option, but I would preffer a more comic-like head, is there any version close to that or a modded head or something?

    definitely file/shave down those tabs in the videos. those things cause too much stress flex and there's no reason for them being that large except for terrible/poor engineering. it's as bad as the tabs for their sideswipe figure where the wheels tab onto on the shoulders to lock them in place for alt mode.

    i have the red and orange versions of this bot. never had a problem or would i ever think there would be a problem with this mold. you need to support the piece. he transformed it correctly at 8:55 in the video. a little common sense goes a long way with these tiny bots.

    i'd prefer an ounce of easy prevention which can easily save you from any careless accident that might occur and you get to enjoy the transformation a little more care free. also less stress on the plastic i feel means more enjoyable toy years in the long run. ;)

    RE : Hauler

    So what is that small gun actually for anyway ?

    or why does he have two blasters that are almost the same ?

    all 3 MFT figures of this mold gets both Inferno and Grapple guns. the small gun is not a gun but repair tool for when he tends to injured autobots.

    Got mine MF-36. It's awesome! I know, it's a KO of Perfect Effect's Assault Team, but MFT did a great job with. Never saw one tip in this thread: you can actually store all of G1 guns in a shield. Extremely poseable team! Forgot to make some pics with installed alternate flashlighter and that purple instead of silver visor. I never liked much MFT scale, but these dudes, or Camera Brothers in G1 colors got me!

    i had mine setup in a way that gives them somewhat of a personality. Viewfinder is a sniper (so he has the long rifle and a small arm shield), Spyglass (or Spectro) is a heavy gunner (so he's got the gattling gun, shoulder missiles and heavy shield), and Spectro (or Spyglass) is a ranger/assault soldier (he has the assault rifle, a small arm shield and a knife)

    i love this set as well. much better than what we got in siege if you ask me. the weapon options alone and what a great price.

    for me these are the perfect reflector

    Every time I see this thread boosted, my hope always rises that it's because they've revealed a Sandstorm triple changer. And each time my hopes are dashed :(

    Well... to be fair, they so far have announced hotrod, highbrow, brainstorm octane and blitzwing that have yet to be release or even have a date. So you may have to sit a little while before another announcement
