    Just wait. I'm sure more will be reissued, and you can usually trust Toy Dojo to have a decent price.

    I've said this before, but online retailers are jacking up prices for 3rd party products to make up for the poor sales of Official Products.

    From MP-44 to MP-50, and even MPM-10, online retailers must be drowning from unsold inventory. Target was selling MPM-10 for 149.99 + tax while TFSource has the same thing for 200 plus plus tax. The thing is you can go to eBay and get MPM-10 for 99.99 plus tax. There's no winning there.

    Never bothered. I'm here to have fun toys to finangle with, and not to have basically glass statues. It makes me prefer less paint actually. And I still find the price hike there ridiculous. Ridiculous price hikes are ridiculous price hikes. Period

    That’s hard though I’ve always like Brawl since he is a Tank and I love tanks, but out of the three right now I like Incursus since he is just so bulky but Fraudo is pretty cool too

    Just received Brawl today. Nice figure. Transformation is over so quickly, though.

    So, the button on the top of the turret, that let's the turret telescope up and down, does not want to move at all. I pressed and pushed it pretty hard and pulled up on the turret harder than I was comfortable doing, but nothing moved.
    Anyone else experince this or have any suggestions?

    I have finally found the time to put Assaultus together...

    Here are my thoughts on all the combining process:

    1. The toy style combined mode looks gorgeous!
    2. The combiner joints suck! Whoever designed those ratchets needs to go back to the engineering school!
    3. The all built in engineering is amazing!!!!
    4. Fraudo was the most difficult to get in combined mode. My hands hurt!!!
    5. The combined mode ankle joints for the forward and backward movement) should have been (good) ratchets.
    6. The combined mode heels need a better locking mechanism to prevent Assaultus from falling backwards.
    7. One big failure of Assaultus' rifle is that it doesn't peg in neither of the combined mode hands nor it can’t be stored anywhere on him.
    8. Quality wise, the whole set is very good, other than the ratchet joints, I really don't have any complaints.
    9. Not perfect by any means, but it is indeed very impressive to look at. Overall I am quite happy with my purchase.
    10. Not an issue related to the combined mode per se, but those thrusters "sliders" in Volatus' legs were one of my biggest frustrations... I had to unscrew them in order to "slide" the last brown cilinder that connects to the thruster out ... Oh my God...
    11. Looking forward to a ratchet upgrade kit.
    Here are some pictures, not the best, but I think they are "ok" ...):

    I didn't have such a problem with Brawl, but I had to disassemble Volatus to get the thruster sliders to move.

    Huh? What do you mean? Both the big silver gun from the upgrade kit and Incursus' green rifle have handle bits that flip down so they tab into the combined-mode hands.

    Really? Where? I couldn't find any decent port to plug the gun in... I will check later, maybe I didn't pay enough attention to where the port was located.

    Took apart the turret. It had the main part for the button mechanism installed upside-down from the factory. Fixed this issue and it works ok.
