    Thank you! Being from the U.K. (and therefore in a different continent from most where most BotCons were held), I never got to experience a lot of the club fiction for myself. I know I shouldn’t be surprised, but the near-encyclopaedic knowledge of the people on this board never ceases to amaze.

    I can barely remember what I had for breakfast this morning, let alone remember the name of some hyper-obscure one-off character.

    Anyone want to split the glyph pack? I don’t want whoever he comes with.

    Finally got mine last night. What did people use for the loose joints? Pledge floorcare finish? A little bit of glue?

    Really like how the head sculpts, but I think if they had been bigger without the fake chests and clown shoes I would have liked them just as much. They do scale much better with the rest of NA figures now.
    It is crazy how small they are; smaller than Dr. Wu's Micromaster Galvatron.

    So is the nest supposed to be their representation of sg goldbug? I’m curious to see how they handle a regular goldbug. And are the remaining repainted toy versions of both characters?

    I used Kiki on one and paint reducer on the other. Both worked pretty well getting the joints tightened up. I’ve been using paint reducer a lot lately and I think I’m a convert. I’ve been using kiki on most of my legend scale figures in the past couple of years with good results, but paint reducer seems to be slightly more durable.

    Got these today, I'm surprised at how much I enjoy them.
    I was expecting to not really like them after hearing reports of the weak joints, but they turned out to not be that terrible (still ended up bathing them in floor polish)

    All the things about the sculpt I didn't like in the prototypes pics vanish once you get them in hand and see that they're the size of your thumb.

    Are you talking about the Shattered Glass blue Cliffjumper? Because chances are a better version of Glyph will see release.

    Yeah I think the “looseness” was blown out of proportion.

    Too bad Hubcap isn't sold on his own. I assumed that Hubcap would be sold with Goldbug, but not really interested in SG characters.
    Though honestly a whole new mold might be better for Goldbug anyways. They could use same engineering for all six Throttlebots.
