    This guy looks awesome, who is it?

    What don't you like about Prime's partsforming guns? I think it's top notch weapon storage.

    Hands and head are limited but this is probably my favorite SS figure (for now)

    I just got Jetfire and I'd have to agree, he's fantastic.

    If your goal is to get Transformers, then just know that in Japan they get everything main line quite late AND they're the same toys for way more money.

    And yeah, I loved Endgame. Very different movie from IW. That's all I'll say for now unless you wanna message me on instagram :) 
    I miss the days when we had a choice to spend a little more if we wanted and get a sick paint job from Takara. Now they're just cosmetic differences to the box yet twice the price!

    Where would I apply it? It's the joint that allows the hip to move forward and backward.

    If it’s a ball joint, add one or two drops in the socket, move the leg around and then let it sit for a day. It should be tight by tomorrow. If it’s still loose, add one or two more drops. The more you mess around with it, the more it’ll wear off, but you can just add more. Don’t add too much at once or it’ll all just flake off the next day.

    If it’s a hinge joint, get a toothpick and try dabbing some in there as best you can. Same principle. You won’t see it getting inside, but it’ll trickle down there. You might need to add more than if it were just a ball joint though, because less liquid will be getting inside at a time

    This is the loose joint I am trying to tighten up. I was thinking it could be that his crotch isn't fully screwed in but I can't find any screws.

    I just have a pet peeve against figures I can’t transform back and forth in one piece (SS Blackout, Sideswipe, Voyager Ratchet for example).

    I use a paint brush, and just brush the entire area.

    Move the joints around just to make sure everything inside gets coated evenly. Repeat the process once more, let it sit overnight, and you'll be good to go!!

    Mountain of salt time

    Its time for the insider source info its not much mind you but its something.

    Also of note

    I can't say yet who is in this next wave yet but have a rough outline of character alligence. And I've thrown some the stuff we already now about in to start and paint a picture of what I think will happen. Also ill say one last thing and that's the exact wave is also currently unknown all that's known is this is what's on the table next for release.

    Wave 9 ?

    Deluxe Class - 4 figures - 2 bots and 2 cons

    Voyager Class - 3 Figures - 1 bot and 2 cons " I would bet one if not both of these cons are scrapper and Mixmaster " the third " bot " is probably exclusive.

    Leader class - 2 both cons " id bet on that second Megatron and Scavenger "

    So to recap

    2 - unknown autobots Deluxe
    2 - unknown Decepticons Deluxe
    1 - unknown exclusive voyager Autobot

    The others we knew about already

    I also have inquired about the " wave 8 " rampage repack and my source said that he does not know anything about it being a yellow version. And followed it up with " I don't think a redeco of rampage or Longhaul will happen until the other Constructicons have been released."

    That's everything for now

    "Quite certainly, manners do maketh the man. However if you act uncivilized in the slightest way, I will not hesitate to tear out your windpipe and curb stomp what's left of your corpse into oblivion.. I say to you "Good Day, sir!!"
