    I mean, June is in less than a week, so I think its within the typical margin for these releases. And its a holiday weekend, so that was probably a factor in the date moving back.

    Like, unpainted? Absolutely. That's a huge time savings for me.

    Yup, that’s exactly what I meant. I would love to paint one up.

    Heads up the core Menasor body can hold both the gun and sword on his back. The gun is a bit ghetto but it holds.

    Still, I can't get Widrider tabbed in as securely as Breakdown. The two pegs that go into his chest are more than enough to keep him in place, but still... He seems to simply rest over the other two (I keep the car-legs looking down, so I'm referring to the pegs on top of Menasor legs).
    I've read some good folk here suggesting to loosen up a bit the two halves of the car, but I don't like the idea of Wildrider looking broken or wonky.
    That's a great pose for Mensasor, thumbs up!

    Note that you cannot Scramblecity the cars on the legs... one leg is Very specific to Wildrider, and the other to breakdown... in my french video I show how I plug them in (I do exactly like @Stranger2306 says he does... i think)

    Hey Tef, I'm a fan!
    Yet I still had to watch your video... :D 

    Thanks for the help, pal. From what I see, though, you have the very same 'issue' (in quotes because it's not really an issue), as in Wildrider doesn't really seem to tab in the two top pegs. Am I right?

    Edit - To elaborate a little... Breakdown has 4 proper posts where you can securely tab in the 4 pegs on Menasor's legs. Widrider seems to only have 2 (on his chest), where the other 2 look like grooves (not holes). I can't see how they could provide a secure connection.

    I have the PT Bruticus, but I haven't bothered with building Menasor, since I don't have the arm bots yet. My guess is Menasor will be significantly taller.

    That exactly. He will never fall off, just by moving the figure around or posing it gently, but yeah, Breakdown fits in much more strongly.

    I do and I already planned comparing both (along DX9 Hulkie) once I get my final set with Dragstrip and Deadend :) 

    DX9 Hulkie's head is midway to Ms Menasor's chest... and IF Bruticus is one head smaller than MS Menasor

    But here's a photo for ya:

    Several pages back a picture was shared with the Pocket Toy KO.

    Bruticus is shorter. I wouldn't object to a more G1 version that's closer in height but honestly I'm cool with some variance in height.

    I don’t have the arms yet, but I’ll do a little shoot with Menasor and IF Bruticus once I get home in a bit. Individual bot modes and everything :thumb

    Don't feel bad. I don't even have my leg bots yet (should arrive any day now, I started in late), and MM and arm bots haven't even shipped (have to wait for rest of preorder to come in stock). It's been fun seeing everyone's pics and stuff though!
