    Well... Damnit.

    I was playing around with my new Jetfire. I had a lot of trouble getting him lined up properly in jet mode -- nothing would peg in right! However, I got it close enough and kept playing.

    Then, while taking him apart for Prime, I noticed the foot wasn't articulating the way I wanted. It just would not sit flat.

    ... and on further inspection, the pin/joint for the foot is broken. Snapped clean through. It looks like the pin was drilled or inserted wrong. The other foot locks into place like I'd expect.

    Whelp. Back to Amazon you go.

    I hadn't been able to find the deluxes yet. So no Dropkick, Hightower, or Drift yet.
    Instead of the poster boys Optimus and Bee, it's Megatron and Barricade, Perfect!
    I need to get in on this role reversal fun everyone has been having!

    Well it seems Mr Scrapmetal isn’t coming to the UK for whatever reason (no one has him not even on PO, but they do have his wave mates), so gone and ordered one from the US. Just need to order a second to be part of devastator when I can find another at close to UK retail prices.

    Tried the weapons wheel configuration with the flight tech on the top at the wheel just like in the film.

    Here's a fun little thing I made, the Studio Series checklist.
    All the currently shown SS figures, all the main character variants, and every on-screen character that I think has the slightest chance of getting made.

    Bending those wings in the opposite direction does not feel good on my copy. Better leave them hanging down.

    Also what on earth is the deal with this misterious Joint?:
    IMG_20190906_080300_849.jpg
    Can anyone get movement out of those? I don't see the purpose as they could've easily moldet that part on the wing

    Hehe, Classic flight tech storage:

    I had an extra scoop for Rampage so I decided to try a more ambitious version of my scoop hinge mod. It worked! I made terrible lopsided cuts on a couple parts and the hinges still need to be cleaned up and painted but he looks even better from all angles now! Instead of cutting a rectangular section of the scoop out I cut a larger, T-shaped section out to hinge. It required a lot more patience and a lot more plastic to be removed from the areas that hold the scoop in place but everything is super solid. Just gotta clean it up now. Let me know what you guys think! The spikes on his back (the parts I left sticking up) are actually movie accurate, too.

    I popped one off trying to get movement. as far as I can tell, there are tabs to keep things straight so it isn't meant to bend. But at the same time, it can be popped off. This makes me think it is a safety joint, meant to come apart if a kid is overzealous with playing with it (like, say, throwing it).

    Looks great! I think once the cuts are cleaned up it'll look perfect. Nicely done!

    I finally got around to flipping around his midsection that was assembled backwards. While I had him apart I also did some trimming to improve head articulation.

    Got myself a RTS Fallback here for only MYR 50 (around USD 12) at the flea markey I usually go to find old TF stuffs. Among all of the second-hand TF stuffs that I had bought, this one is fortunately in excellent condition with no missing parts- as if it's a newly opened figure right out of packaging.

    This figure is quite on the shellformer-ish side, but damn he do looks badass.

    Yes, I know I mistransformed the figure but I'm just too lazy to take another set of the same pictures with the correct knee armor position for now. :eek:

    nice find! Brawn was one of my favorite ROTF figures growing up

    While I'm happy with what we got, I still somewhat wish the figure had the Hummer alt mode it was originally concepted with

    That version of alt mode do looks quite nice, I'm not gonna lie.

    Just attempting to transforming it into the attack pickup truck mode. Man, that's quite a bit of shellforming going on, but the alt mode do look awesome despite the plain deco.
