    While I was worried that he might look like a second BB on my shelf, in-hand, Hubcap is definitely his own bot. Great re-use of the mold and the face sculpt is money.

    It doesn't bother me a lot but it is annoying that it was that "simple" a fix - now I would probably never try it but NA could have done the same thing to their original design. Anyway good job!

    I wouldn't call it simple,in case other people who haven't painted a lot want to try it, but yeah they should have done it in the first place.

    That was definitely why I put simple in quotes. For the manufacturer, that would have been simple to mold/paint. I definitely don't have the patience and coordination to attempt it. Painting in lines that small would be hard enough and there are no lines there to start with. I'll live with it.

    Love these little guys. Mine are staying in bot mode so I popped the heel pins, removed the extra bits with the windows from the heel, snipped the pins down with some wire cutters and re-inserted the shortened pins.
    They still stand fine, feet are a lot cleaner and it was a relatively easy change. They no longer transform I imagine, but it cleans up the only part that really bugged me with 'em. I think I'll pick up a second set for alt mode.

    Firm it? Just curious on what the missing piece will do.

    Unfortunately, the pieces I removed are currently lost in the random kibble on my workbench so I can't really check, but I'm pretty sure they're the two halves of the front windscreen, so kinda important to alt mode!! You might be able to just slot them in place but without the pin, there'd be nothing to hold them in place. I'll be picking up additional copies for alt mode so its not really a problem for me.

    Finally bought a set. Boy, you guys not exaggerating when you said "tiny". Even core class looks huge compared to these.

    I would still be curious to see a G1 goldbug in this mold, but doubt they could beat their first attempt. These two have excellent joints, unlike my loose hip cliff from the initial set. NA’s shattered glass box art gets better with each release imo. I’ve got my fingers crossed that they release an SG constructicon set eventually
