    I oddly really enjoy this combined mode!
    It’s incredibly different and doesn’t follow any of the traditional Menasor engineering so it’s nice to see something new! It is definitely clunky but the connects are rock solid. The areas of potential paint chipping though are really worrying. The purple on motormasters legs already started to chip so I plan on applying a clear coat over those.

    How well does deadend stay attached to the hand for you? Mine will just fall off if I mess with it.

    It’s a shame to hear about all the paint issues with Howl - particularly given how playable-with the first three releases are.

    Mine didn't come with the extra hinge or Dragstrip's gun. Did you have to request them or are they supposed to be included with everyone's?

    Deadend's piece comes with Wildrider, Dragstrip's new gun comes with Motormaster. (and it is VERY easy to miss the gun, it's not in the tray, just a loose little bag floating in the box)

    I definitely didn't get a gun with my Motormaster then. There wasn't anything in a bag loose in the box. :( 
    I'll send showz a message about it.

    Mine flew out the box as soon as I pulled the tray out (like @David Hingtgen mentioned earlier in this thread). I made sure to open it in the middle of a room with lots of carpet around in case it flew.

    The bag has the gun and two tweezers. Hopefully ShowZ can help you out to get a replacement bag.

    I had to put some polish onto Deadends ports just to keep it on. But after that it’s nice and snug!

    The little bag was inside of the instructions when I popped open Motormaster. They really just toss the stuff in there!

    I’d also highly recommend applying a clear coat of either clear nail polish or floor polish onto Motormasters purple areas on his legs. I had one tiny chip and I could already see a few more forming.

    I'm very conflicted. On the one hand, I think Motormaster looks great, and I want to complete the 'set'. On the other, there's paint chipping/flaking, I don't like the combined mode, I have no interest in Blackjack, and as a result of those two things I won't use it costs more than the other four toys combined (as it were).

    Maybe I'll wait and see if it goes on sale.

    You want a water-based polyurethane varnish or polish.

    I'm in total agreement with this post. The paint issue is my biggest reservation at this point. I do want to complete the set but...

    I’ve found myself really enjoying the vehicle modes of these guys! And still having every single combined mode part all in one figure is something I love way more than I thought I would!

    Can someone show me where the paint chip area is on Motormaster?

    I didnt see any chip on mine, but i am only posing it mostly in bot mode. I keep hearing the purple, but which area exactly?

    I received Motormaster a few days ago and I was really impressed. It's all I've ever wanted in a Motormaster: a great fusion between his cartoon and toy looks, with the real cab as the feet and a presence on the shelf. I love his style, I love his articulation - I only wish he had an upwards joint at the neck. He's quite solid and I don't have any paint issue yet.
    I juste love messing with him, even in combined mode - I love Menasor's hands!

    Everywhere circled has had paint chip reports so far. On my personal copy I’ve only had a slight chip on the right leg upper purple area.
