    I wonder if that means they are not pre-lubed ?

    Did anyone ever have any luck getting parts for these if they ever had a missing or broken piece ?

    Is this a good third party option for someone who hasn't got a Bruticus or any other combiner? Comparing this to the Gen 2 Hasbro version this one just looks much better. Is it good quality ?

    Is their Predaking just as good? Both look awesome but I like Bruticus more. Predaking is cheaper though.

    No, not as good. I have their OS Nero Rex recolor, the arm ratchets cannot hold the heavy limbs up. Your millage may vary tho, some have little trouble with their OS Predaking.

    the the Bruticus is better. The individual figures are up sized but otherwise not simplified or distorted. The Predaking individual figures have goofy big heads and certain simplifications, but in Combined mode it looks impressive. I actually hope that they Redo the it in bruticus quality

    Thanks, that is encouraging to hear about Bruticus. This is the version I will target in the future once I've finished my Titans Return list.

    The Big fella is missing his ankle tilts - but it's not a huge loss.

    Also some of the weapons don't fit properly - (to tight)

    He is fun though and the individual robots seem more appropriately sized over-all.
    He's something that makes sense to get if you plan to get the OSKO Gravity Builder too.

    I might have to make some fine adjustments to his shoulders though they kinda don't work properly.

    I have no such problem can you elaborate ?

    The only back pack issue I had was the back guns were a bit loose so I had to dab some nail polish in the holes to get it to hold better.
    The hinges on his foot covers didn't open well at first but they work fine now - they were just being tempremental the 1st couple of times - the only issue I have that I need to fit is to do with the shoulders needing some sanding internally on the posts and reassmbling so they don't get stuck in the joints and the forward and back rotation isn't moving at all - so I have to disassemble the arm bots to fix that sometime.
    But to be honest I'm not that bother that it is stuck as if I take the arms out and put them back in then they won't ever drop if they are stuck.

    Ah it's okay now mate. I juat need to push it with all of my strenght and now it fit. What a good figure . So big yet so stabel. Now the only concern is because the shoulder part doesn't have any tab or lock but it's not real issue. Anyway very happy with my purchase .

    I love that TF:RID15 Soundwave just chilling with the Gundam/Mobile Suits.

    Soundwave: "Day 12. The mobile suits suspect nothing. When asked what mobile suit I am, I respond: "I am no Zaku, boy! No Zaku!". This seems to work every time for some reason."

    Look at the connector ports, you might need to push on something to release them. It's been a while for me...

    Haha, actually he's there to distract my young nephew when he wanders into my room. "Here, play with this."

    The legs have a release that you have to press. I don't remember how the arms connect.

    The arms have a locking mechanism. You have to push in on a rectangle slot to unlock the arm port from the shoulder socket. A small flat head screwdriver would do the trick

    He doesn't have any I can see the foot is moulded in a single part. rather than having a seperate ratcheted cheese wedge shaped parts like the normal size Warbotron has. Both feet are identical too.
