    Another odd thing is why people keep trying to bend his shoulders where they shouldn't move.

    Is it worth Hasbro repainting and selling Hot Rod and Orion Pax seperately as individuals without their trailers?

    Picked up Blackwing and was messing around with him the night. Mold is terrible and several areas won’t stay tabbed in jet mode. Combined mode with Dreadwing is just absolutely lazy and useless. Will be displaying these guys in robot mode only.

    Almost certainly not. Usually the components of these toys are on the same sprues, even if the assembled toy is in two forms. Essentially, when they make a Hot Rod, they are already making a Rodimus trailer.

    It is possible to take part of a mould and cast it separately, something that Takara have done recently by giving TR Windblade the sword and scabbard from her original toy. However this comes at a considerable cost, which Hasbro rarely puts on to customers.

    Is anyone else unable to open a Prime Master's pretender shell without saying "pretendaaah". I'vI've managed it once by concious effort and was still thinking it very loudly.

    How do you plan to display your Prime Masters?

    I currently have Vector Prime/Metalhawk in gun mode held by Starscream to symbolize Screamer's consolidation of power. I was planning to have Elita-1 hold Liege Maximo/Skullgrin and giving Solus Prime/Octopunch to either Windblade or Chromia. If I had Victorion, I give it to her. Presuming Nexus is on its way, I'll probably end up either having Defensor hold the weapon or make use of Volcanicus' chest.

    I'm just gonna keep them in Pretender mode with them holding their weapons. It's not that I don't like their weapon mode, I'm just paranoid about joint tolerances.

    It just dawned on me that the Dinobots have chest colors that kind of match up with Star Trek uniform colors. Grim is in command gold, Swoop is in science blue, and the rest in engineering or security red.
