    I have some of those same problems (particularly the squeaky joints and too small missile pod handles) but overall I think it was well worth it for the more managable scale over the Hasbro version, and the bargain bin price its sold for. Easily the most bang-for-buck I have gotten from collecting TF.

    What are some of the common breakage points, just so I can be mindful when handling this set?

    I bought one of these last year or so just for the smaller scaled Constructicons. I love them, but it took a couple of nights of slathering modgepodge on their hips to get most of them to stand on their own. I didn’t trust the KO plastic to ever combine them.

    And if you think Decepticons are the villains, just remember that the autobots are not above waterboarding.

    From what I hear the combined mode connection points for the left and right arms are problem areas. Some report them breaking after a year.

    I had no idea it had a diorama in the box like that. I may have to reconsider getting this set, especially if the price drops again.

    I think there's speculation that it was originally going to be a clear plastic window like the first set on account of the diorama, only for it to end up not happening as a result of hasbro's shift to closed box packaging.

    He's chunky, he's a bit wibbly, but I love him so much.

    Was able to pick up Universe Skyfall, with the Renderform Skyjack head!
    I adore him as an update to the G2 character, and I'm excited to get my Top Gun Maverick repainted into Hooligan to go with him! :D 
    Also, he's got one of those REALLY pleasant and straightforward Transformations. Just fun to convert.

    You know, Skyfall wears that mold with flying colours. And it's appropriate, since isn't he supposed to be some kind of politician or spy?

    Nice one!

    The Ariel remold has a pretty slick Bike Mode. Would've made for a killer Flamewar.

    Renderform's Burnout head showed up today. Already had the DK-3 Breaker head and made sure to scoop up his other Diaclone head so Burnout can have an actual face. Pops on easily, looks great.

    This fine looking MF came in today, currently trying to track down and collect every Black Shadow figure released.

    The deco on this figure is so crisp, the yellow accents, the metallic black plastic, the metallic red that looks flat in certain lighting accompanied by sharp glossy white accents, and TWO colors of clear plastic? hot damn! super happy to have this.

    I’d like to thank/blame @Bakarina for putting me on to these guys. Best set of Constructicons you can buy for under $20.

    My walmart had a nice restock again. Picked up legacy Silverbolt and Cybertron Star Scream today. No pics, haven't had a chance to mess with them yet
