    Good Cop: It's already, everything is going to be ok. If you can just tell us what we want to know, you'll be off the hook.

    I always thought Stockade would make a good Warpath head.

    Nothing to do with movie toys, it's armor for the Flame Toys Optimus Prime model kit that's homaging Masterforce God Bomber and ROTF Jetfire's Optimus upgrades at the same time.

    sorry to see that happened
    but somebody definitely got in to that box and stole the accessories. studio series boxes can be opened at the bottom without appearing tampered with. the flaps are only folded at the bottom, not sealed.

    Can you unscrew the handle and peg the handle over the peg on the small shield?

    That's a common design flaw. Just the way it was designed so it's on everyone's copy. There's no way to keep the shin plugged in without straightening the feet flat.

    I would love to but I didn't take any pics along the way, sorry. I will say there were a few risky cuts (wrist hinges had to be chopped off since the pins wouldn't budge), and drilling the hands for the balljoint posts is kinda tough.
    The thread I got reference reference from is Minor/Repaint: - Studio Series Blackout - Hands and refueling probe mod. I had to use bionicle balljoints so they required a bit more cutting/sanding in comparison. If you can somehow replicate what cloudballoon did you may have an easier time than I did. Again, I'm sorry I can't explain this one.
    Yep.

    Got this guy out the box last night. Was one o my earliest attempts at customising, and it's so poor compared to now. Think I'll remaster it for the 10th anniversary and go over him.

    Love the new Long Haul! Such a simple but nice-looking figure. I can’t wait for the rest of the Constructicons! I wish they were coming out sooner. I’ve been waiting a decade for a fully transformable and combinable Devastator.

    ss long haul is awesome, tons of details. It is fat and cute. Hope some other factory can oversized it to scale with ss 32 80D30D6B-B161-4378-A301-AAF54D7DAC18.jpeg B7BDF1CF-F68F-42FD-B2CE-C0B4405C1AF1.jpeg 9FE883F8-BC97-488C-8241-F4EF6E95458B.jpeg F21AC2FA-DF61-42C8-A8CF-290433CC11DB.jpeg BD0C4BB8-5238-4B92-9830-C759FEB216FE.gif
