    Yeah that process hasn't been fun, all they want to do is send me spares but some parts can't be replaced as they're held in with inaccessible metal pins. I've explained this at least 6 times but it doesn't get through, so all I can do is wait for the spares to arrive (who knows how long that process will take) and when I inevitably can't fit them get back in touch and get a refund, which is all I wanted in the first place. (either that or a replacement figure sent out but apparently they can't do that for whatever reason.)
    So yeah I'm not very happy especially since I was led to believe that they had exemplary customer service but so far it's been nothing but frustration and disappointment.
    It arrived quickly though from china to the UK lol
    My last order with them went perfectly though, so I guess I'm 50/50 on them.

    Show.Z's customer service quality has definitely gone downhill. I hope you get your issue resolved.

    DID IT! I'm getting one of these big bad dogs, from a user of this very thread! A good price, less than ShowZStore, for one. Yes, it's used, but it's also not 9-week wait and has no QC issues.

    I've decided to address my biggest problem with this figure by modding the tool boxes and rear fenders in robot mode to look more like the screen model. I think a little partsforming will do the trick.

    Oh man, I just got this guy today, used from a fellow board member here. Perfect condition, no QC problems, as close to perfect as I could have hoped.

    The funny backpack doesn't even bother me, he's that good. I'd love to get an OS Megatron for him to face off against, but honestly, on his own he's just brilliant.

    I require my Cybertronians to have storage for their weapons in robot mode, so I did a little cutting on the guns, and now they hang off his back:

    IMG_20200227_223235797.jpg

    My head-canon says they transform out of his back to end up there.

    They will stay put during gentle handling, but don't go nuts. If there's interest, I'll create a Radicons thread.

    Man, I need to get that MPP10!! I'm trying to build up my MP-MPM Prime collection. I sold my Challenger, cause I got tried of his stiffness...and by that I mean how stiff he looked in every pose.

    So, so far all I have is WJ's MPM04, MP32, and WJ's M09 whenever he gets here, so I quite short on that collection. I'm hoping that we'll get better AOE/TLK Prime soon, as well as an MPM Evasion Mode Prime!!

    I really need a better background.

    I think so, right? Slightly off topic, I think Ratchet looks good in that size too.

    On topic: the truck wheels on OP's feet in the movies are a little weird. It looks like the tire is sort of shrunken inwards, leaving the outer half of the metal rim exposed:

    Screenshot_20200507-192827~2.png

    I decided to replicate that, so I just popped the tires off (we're already partsforming 4 tires, what's 2 more?) and painted the inner part of each rim black to simulate tire tread.
