    As cool as that would be, there’s people who refuse to buy skipjack because rampage is enough. It’ll have to be a 3rd party overload.

    The upgrades really look good.

    Starting to have real stability concerns with this guy. In particular the hips are stressed to their limits and seem to be getting looser with time, and the tab sockets that hold Scavenger's shoulders to the bottom wheel struts for combined mode are loosening, it seems like they could potentially crack under the weight of the arms.

    I know everyone's stoked about the DNA kit, but I wouldn't add any more weight to this -- the plastic is already being pushed to its limits.

    Only thing wearing down is the ratchet joint on scavenger on mine. Can barely keep his hand up

    Was worried the combined mode would wear down the plastic, so just keeping them separated and enjoying the individual bot modes.

    Same. Thankfully the bot modes are some of the most dynamic we've seen in a modern combiner. They make a really good looking team.

    Standing up in the official configuration. I found it more stable than the all-fours setup, but it's possible splitting the load could help.

    The slot in question has, in fact, cracked. I also had one of Overload's torso ratchets fail like many others have, I fixed those up so hopefully I can fix this as well.
    I'm starting to wonder if the red plastic is a bad blend, or if it's just bad luck with the torso bots that happen to use the same plastic. I've had 5 breakages so far, 3 of them on the red. The other two were both on the black plastic used for Scavenger's wheels. They live in a detolf, I pull them out to transform them once a month or so.

    I’ve had one problem with overload, and zero problems with my constructicon son. Those tabs on scavenger aren’t a solid connection for me though. Kind of like a soft tab.

    I don’t think it’s the plastic per se, more just the absurd amount of weight that scavenger carries as well as some questionable design on Overload’s part

    I’ve had zero problems with the structural integrity of devastator. That can’t be just me.

    We've had zero issues and acquired Overload months before the US release.

    Outside of the Overload torso ratchet thing I mentioned months ago (which is primarily down to persistent usage and is an easy fix either way) mine has been dead solid as well. Granted I’ve only had it in bipedal stance a grand total of twice and only for about 2 minutes both times, but I imagine the Scavenger issue is first and foremost only an issue when the figure is posed consistently or in strenuous ways.

    I preordered on BBTS, and still no news. Wrote them an e-mail yesterday and they have not answered. :confused:

    DNA Design in general feels like its not running on full cylinders. I can understand why, given everything that's happened in the past year, but that Big Convoy Matrix Buster cannon they revealed last year still hasn't come out.

    There’s other places you can buy from. I’ve just bought from bits before so I trust them. What other online stores are trustworthy, no cap?

    My Devastator has been standing on two legs for months with no issues.
