    My PE sets weren't as bad as his, and I got the replacement ball joints, which helps. Though his Bonecrusher side shoulder part had the same problem as mine, went upwards fine, but going downwards was really hard and mine broke because of that. I got a replacement though and that one was better.

    Oh lol, I only saw one other of his videos and thought he just had it out for PE lol... him pacing around in the background was kinda funny though... not sure if he's just doing that for the show or if he really is that disappointed in the stuff he buys... seems like a lot of money to be spending on products he knows he's not going to like lol...

    All in all I'm still looking for a good upgrade kit. I stumbled across this review because I watched Peaugh's review of another kit. I not convinced of any of them at this point and it is hard to buy just for a mixmaster cab.

    Do'h, thread bumped again, but no answers on whether or not the Prowl head is compatible with TFC Hercules :( 

    Anyone know? Anyone have the Prowl head and not want it/want to sell it?

    This set is ABSOLUTELY worth the price for the Mixmaster Cab, the Scavenger shovel, the crane boom for Hook, the hands, and the purple leg pads. All are absolutely fantastic.

    I will say that I'm not a fan of the Prowl head or the shoulders.

    I used my set on Hasbro version of CW Devasator.

    Appreciate that! A board member and I already hooked up though :) 

    A little blue tack and some modification and my Herc is now rocking the new head/Prowl stuff. :)

    If there's anyone out there who doesn't want the purple thigh pieces that came with the Perfect Effect PC-06 upgrade for Combiner Wars Devasator, please PM me. I desperately want to buy them from you.

    Mine popped out and ended up on the floor. My dogs used it as a chew toy and I don't want to buy another whole upgrade set just to replace the little plastic thigh pieces.

    I live at zip code 21921. Thanks in advance to anyone who responds.

    someone should make a stand alone figure of Prowl and new Hook figure. Prowl will be the new upper torso and Hook the new right leg. Can't just have Prowl's head on Devastator and call it Prowlstator.

    Here I go being the latest to necro this thread, but I was wondering about whether the Perfect Effect PC-07 guns are compatible with and, maybe even more importantly, look decent on the individual Maketoys Green Giant bots.

    I'm assuming there's a real size disparity, as PC-07 is meant for Voyager-class figures, and the GG figures are Deluxe-sized... but I can't seem to find any pics on Google of anyone using the combination.

    I know Shapeways has G1-inspired guns meant more for TFC's / Maketoy's Devastator offerings, but they're almost $12 a pop ($72 total) vs. PC-07 at just $30.

    Any insight would prove useful!!

    I just got the replacement arms set and my scrapper arms could attach better. Like, when I try to rotate them they fall off. I think I'm gonna try "locking" them on with some bondic/5secondfix/lazer bond.
    They do hold up devy about as well as the stock arms though.

    I did have some other issues though. Long Hauls arm addons were very loose due to not being riveted on securely. I ultimately had to remove the rivet, sand the plastic post down some and deepen the hole in it, then replace the rivet with some glue.

    Another issue I had was that Hook and Scrappers arms not exactly fitting "right" in alt mode. On hook the arm bumps up on the hinge for combined mode, keeping it popped out a tiny bit in alt mode. Scrapper basically has a similar issue, his forearms are just a hair to long, meaning they don't fit snugly in place.

    Overall I do like the set, the forearms are SOOOO much better on scrapper, and the arms for the rest make them quite passable. The guns also are quite nice, but you might need to sand down the handles as needed.

    Honestly though... if I could redo things I would probably just get the takara set. XD

    So I broke down and got the Perfect Effect PC-07 forearms and guns set.

    Here's my opinion of the set:

    1) Definitely worth the $29.99 price tag.

    2) The guns are great and they're worth the price of admission all by themselves. I saw someone say that the instructions are too small and they can't tell who's guns belong to who. That wasn't the case for me. You can clearly tell where they belong. The plastic quality is solid. They also store nicely on the back of Devastator. (on Longhaul's truck bed)

    3) I really like the forearms for Scrapper. Very nice in both vehicle and robot modes. The problem is when Scrapper is in leg mode. The forearms aren't wide enough and they don't stay attached solidly to support Devastator's weight. I left them off because my Constructions stay in Devastator mode.

    4) The forearms for Hook are really nice too. But I left them off because there is no connection clip on them to click into Longhaul in Devastator mode. I didn't want the stability of Devastator to suffer.

    5) I installed the forearms on Mixmaster. They look great and work well. They're sleeker than the stock arms and the hand sculpt looks alot better. The silver barrel looks alot better than the stock ones as well.

    6) I also like the forearms for Longhaul. They look great. Alot better than his puny stock arms. They also store nicely and fill in the gaps on his truck bed in Devastator mode.

    If you have the Hasbro CW Devastator, I definitely recommend this set.

    Sorry to resurrect this thread.

    My Scrapper Forearms don't stay on.

    Light force or spinning the arm undoes the new forearm from the peg.

    Is this a common problem, and is there a mod/fix for this?

    Common problem. They do indeed suck.

    If it's any consolation the arms on my UW Scrapper are so tight that I'm afraid I might snap off the mushroom peg before getting an elbow bend so I tend not to use them.

    There should be a mechanism that lets the cab move while attached to take care of that.

    Just received my PC-06 2016 edition and installed most of the parts. I didn't see a need to add Hook's upgrade, and I'm not really crazy about the Prowl head. I love the new foot for Long Haul, and the hands work just fine too. I think my only complaint is how the Bonecrusher and Scavenger's treads flop around.
