    No, it doesn’t. That’s why I’m hoping it’s not an issue. Shockwave’s hips are balljoints

    Tell me about it! I've basically just assembled my dream collection PLUS more! This line is the gift that keeps on giving. I feel like after SS, my life will be complete lol. I'll pretty much be done with life once I can finally complete this devy set.

    From having the Studio Series ROTF Megatron figure in my collection, I can tell you that those hips are actually universal joints and not ball joints. If they were ball joints, they would be prone to popping apart from excessive force.

    I like how the most recent Toyhax update says they’ve “hit all the bases” yet they have consistently ignored the bulk of studio series line which could greatly benefit from reprolabels. At least give us some better flames for ss-32 and leader class Optimus. Maybe some dirt and scratches for the constructicons idk. Hopefully if we do get studio series wreckers they cover that “base” at least.

    I honestly have not seen the criticism that some of you have pointed out, certainly not in this thread. Where are you guys seeing this negativity? I could be oblivious or been around the fandom too long and have seen this cycle repeat itself.

    I've said it before, Studio Series is the best line overall by Hasbro currently. This is the line movie collectors want to focus on.

    I wish Mixmasters wheels could turn to face the outside of his arms. Still, he looks way nicer than the original for all of his faults. Got a good feeling he might end up being the weakest of the Constructicons, but that's the price to pay for being a head I guess.

    Oh, my mistake then. Good deal. So they haven’t gotten loose or anything?
    Then I’m back to zero concerns about Shockwave

    Update: My issue with the looseness in the hips was my fault. There's a button in his butt to release the torso, but you have to press it as well to seat the torso properly. Once it's in tight, it's all good.

    Also he looks badass with BMB Brawl.

    I dunno if they changed staff or what, but theyre definetly more Geewunner now then they use to be. Which sucks because I'm imagining naked SS Wreckers that need decals, or Scavenger to fill in the missing O&K and whatnot

    Sucks man

    Just going forward and backward.
    Edit: Seems to have tightened up on mine over the course of several months.
