    Got Impetus in today. Last mmc I owned was the knight morphers. He’s very cool and the engineering is nice, but I see mmc still has tons of little fiddly panels and tabs require my nailless fingers to use tools to unlock, and have me constantly scared I’m going to break something. May just be my lack of TF experience the last several years.

    really dig the look of the robot mode though and I plan to get the rest of the set.

    one question... what is this red plastic thing for?

    I think that's to read the "tech specs" on the box. Like the old G1 toys.

    Were those actually hard to read? I can see the MMC ones perfectly fine without a decoder.

    I don't usually need them either, nah, but I guess they wanted to emulate the gimmick from the 80s toys. (Which I think is a nice touch.)

    Be careful when playing around with the feet of the addon set.
    When transforming from box to foot, I managed to break of one of the tiny plastic pins that are used for articulation of the part that become the side of the foot.
    It still seems to work and hold together, but I'll have to see if that's still true when the full weight of Assaultus is resting on it.

    Yeah. They got those cool little references across the line and figures.

    The shoulders in combined mode were mistransformed.

    I think paik was just focusing on how to attach the pieces themselves and forgot to flip the cab roof chunks back is all.

    He did also forget to flip out the heel panel underneath the addon foot as well. Though its not really required for the stability of the set so much as aesthetic to fill in the space in the middle.

    Nice ideas, but I decided to just put it in the hole in the tail part of the helicopter. The barrel sticks out slightly, but it's not that obvious.

    After 26:00 when talking about the combined Assaults hips... he forgets to slide the green/blue knee plate over towards the inner thigh. This helps lock everything in place. Looks like he did it correctly in the final shots of combined mode, but skipped it in the instructions. Creative video editing. C'mon Emgo!!!

    My Incursus finally arrived. He's a beast. Can't wait for Volatus and Probus.
