DAMMIT! I JUST ordered the Pointblank set. I could have saved on the shipping :'(
I mean, if you really want the hubcaps, then by all means, but if you're mainly in it for the Breakdown spoiler you can save $7+ shipping and use a hobby knife to cut the spoiler he came with down the middle. It's what I did.
Eh... Kind of "meh". Sad. =\
Still better than TFLab, though. Bought his filler kit/spoiler and well... It's not great. Fillers are mostly fine but the spoiler is utterly useless. The peg is too small and will spin the pieces, freely.
Nonnef's will at least fit, so there's that.
I bought it for the sake of it.
Just got the Breakdown and Wildrider parts in. Nonnef's been a bit hit-and-miss lately, but this set is definitely one of the better ones. Everything fits snugly with no issues and color matching is great.
I decided to keep Wildrider's hubcaps from the 115 Workshop set just to add some more diversity between him and Breakdown, and I can't apply Breakdown's torso-fillers yet because I plan to further modify him in the future with Sam Forge's Re-shelling set so I need access to the screws for the time being.
Another thing to mention, unlike the Siege-Lambo or Wheeljack spoilers, because the pegholes are on the inner area rather than the outer area, you can't just swivel the spoilers into place while transforming. You'll need to pop one out, swivel the other into place and peg the other one back in, so if that bit of partsforming annoys you then that's a thing, but I think it's perfectly dealable.
Definitely better than TFLab's then. Geez, I got ripped off on that one. Ugh.
Couldn't you just separate the back half of the vehicle mode THEN swivel the spoilers?
Friends don't let friends buy TF Lab products.
I'm gonna need a hosted YouTube video guide on this one.
Man, Nonnef’s color matching on Breakdown is so good that I really do wish he would design a new bonnet to make him more Lambo-like. Unfortunately I think it would be pretty complicated with inconvenient pin removal or going the Sam’s Forge route and just straight reshelling half the car.
Or just not swivel the spoilers at all. I don't think it makes much difference.
Color match is actually good?
I'd say so, photos are there for you to judge too.
You could, but I wouldn't advise it, it gets in the way of getting a good grip for transforming ithe legs.
While the set is basic, I like what it does and I do prefer the finished look of nonnef's spoiler over my cut version
honestly I've never grabbed it from there, I always opened the legs up and then separated them. getting a better grip from the open panels
Any more word on the Targetmaster kits? I'm curious about how those are gonna turn out.
From the Nonnef Discord:
"'Weapon Robots' line has expanded to be a full figure line. First five or so releases will be along the original idea of highly articulated 3" robots that turn into weapons. After that there will be organic parts as well mixed into the waves. There are a lot of designs we can get to at that size that work nicely with current collections.
"The figures will all use standard peg joints to make everything modular, and will eventually expand into larger 6" and 14" figures as well that follow the same play pattern.
"Think more along the line of TF Weaponizers but at a smaller size. Pegs will be a mix of 3mm and 5mm with plenty of adapters."
My brain is having trouble measuring this. Are they going to be closer to core class sized or battlemaster sized?
Kinda hyped tho.
