    Yup, you made it worse. There was actually too much plastic on the peg, not too little. I think the plastic dried too big. I posted this a couple of pages back, hope it helps you:

    FIX FOR THE TABBING ISSUE OF THE CAB OR THE ACCESSORIES CANNONS NOT HOLDING IN PLACE:
    Both issues are actually caused by the same thing. When you fold in the hands, you will notice there is a little peg there. I think with the plastic they used that little peg did not set right, and the tolerances are just a bit off. Okay, no problem.

    Just grab a trusty razor blade, or weapon of choice and start shaving off very little plastic. Then start test fitting big blaster gun. You will notice it will start holding better. You can even use the small blaster and rotate that around. The small blaster holds better, but if your rotating it and it kind of feels like it is popping off, you can probably take off a little more plastic. Basically when you get it, the big blaster will hold. Not the best hold, but better than the original hold which was almost none existent.

    The better part of all of this, is now, in Alt mode the front part of the cab that refused to clip in will now clip in. The reason which it wouldn't clip in, is the peg was to large to fit in the back panel peg hole (which is the back of the front grill). By shaving off the slightest amount of plastic to the peg in the back of the arms, you fixed the tolerances and everything pegs together!

    Man, that dry brush took that to the next level. Great job.

    Thank you! But I'm still trying to get that more movie styled weathering down. IMG_8807.jpeg
    Always room for improvement!

    Has anyone tried to swap his head to the studio version? Really curious how the bigger head would look

    I don't really need any of these figures...


    Buuuuut I really want the DLX, mostly because it has the maskless face. Plus I cannot have two DLX Bayverse Primes, and only DLX BBM Prime but not the DLX ROTB. Wouldn't feel right!

    Haha, I may get the ROTB DLX Prime, but right now my next big(sh) purchase MDLX Megatron to hold me off until they make a OSKO of the SS109 Megatron to go along with this MHZ Prime. Unless of course AMK beats them to a larger BBM Megatron :D  .

    Did you move the eyes up inside the head? They look more forward than the stock head.

    MDLX Megs is magnificent! Honestly my favorite take on a G1 Megs. He just feels a lot more solid than Prime! IMG_0073.jpeg IMG_0072.jpeg IMG_0074.jpeg
    MHZ Prime is a bit too tall for MDLX.
    IMG_8827.jpeg
    Commander is about 8 inches, while MDLX Megs is 7 inches.


    Also yeah I did paint Meg's helmet black because I feel the color break up looks nice. Prime has blue hands, legs and a blue helmet, and I feel like Megs having a black helmet, hands and legs would look nice.

    Yolo park model kits usually have good proportions but something about this Optimus just looks wrong, I actually like your weathered supreme commander more, well-done!

    Very impressive!B Black looks cool, but I'm happy with the silver.

    I have MDLX Prime and it's weird. I was turned off by him even considered selling him. Mainly because of the hip skirts kept falling off which was distracting, but I recently picked him up, and realized that his hips slide forwards and backwards and it totally resolved the hip skirt problem. Now it felt much more fluid, which made me really enjoy it. Plus he is a hefty figure, after not handling for a bit the matterial felt very solid, which i believe ks one of the lines selling points.

    That motivated me to grab a MDLX Megatron restock preorder from BBTS. I'm also eyeballing the G2 repaint, because nostalgia.

    So the longer I have this guy the more I enjoy him and think that this price tag is a STEAL. What other figures should I be looking at that is in this price class?
