Tell that to Siege Springer. You gotta close press his shoulders into the body real freaking tight.
Got mine today.
I wish that was the case for mine. I don't have Arcee, but I do have Road Rocket, and Flamewar's windshield definitely pops off easier. Other comparisons:
With the waist tab locked in properly, Road Rocket's waist is tighter than Flamewar's. That's not necessarily a good thing - RR's is tight enough that after transforming her waist is usually at an angle, and I have to use force to get it to be straight up and down.
The gas tank cover (I think that's what it is) that's part of the handlebar assembly that winds up on the back is slightly misassembled on RR, being at a bit of an angle. It's properly assembled on Flamewar.
Flamewar's neck joint and knee joints are tighter than Road Rocket's.
I haven't posed her too much or transformed her yet, but I did put Fireglide in her hand in "gun" mode, and I don't know if her fist hole is a little small, or the peg on the back of Fireglide's head is a little bit, but it's a tight fit.
Damn near forced my back too much last week cleaning up my mom's place and putting her new chair together.
Next day edit: After fiddling a bit more I have determined that my copy too has leg tabs that don't quite stay in place for robot mode, at least not as securely as Road Rocket's do. They're not flopping about, but bending a knee is usually going to cause them to disconnect.
I wasn't expecting to get every version of this mold but here we are.
She's definitely the hottest one of the bunch.
Now all we need is her sister: Flamebaiter with Astroglide!!!
That comic makes me really want a shattered glass Slipstream and Shadowstriker
I don't know, a black line over her upper lip gives her just enough character to look more like her IDW 2.0 self. I'd still probably get a 3d print of a new head if someone made it
She's here! (a day late thanks to my eternal enemy UPS...)
Cool little unadvertised feature. You can have her interact with regular "Cons and it doesn't cause your entire collection to implode.
Looks like they're both based on the IDW 2 / Cyberverse designs
I guess science will have to keep searching for the secret to cold fusion...
Mine showed up just now, looking forward to cracking her open once I put the kiddo to bed tonight.
Ah, yeah those look more IDW original than anything potentially physical. Ah well, thanks anyway!
Yeah, there were a few surprising faces in this issue.
Got Flamewar today. I wish I hadn't bought it. It's the first of this mold I ever bought. It's so fiddly. I suspect this QC issue is coloring my judgement. Is this just mine or is it all of them? There appears to be a missing pin connecting the piece where the front wheel plugs in to the rest of the bike frame.
I love her, my favorite of the 3 bikes.
Got Flamewar today, and I really like her. I don't like that inserting Fireglide's handle cracked Flamewar's hand. It's weird though, Road Rocket's hand fits the handle fine, so it might just be my copy that's flawed. Side note: I'm trying to swap the hands between Flamewar and Road Rocket, but that forearm assembly is really making it difficult.
Can Fireglide work as an arm-mounted crossbow?
