    So, no one actually ever answered this for me. Does anyone know how you're actually supposed to do this?

    I mostly agree. Only thing I would have done differently to make it feel more "Botconish" is to give Prime a different paint job and make him a new character or Delta Magnus.

    That would have been awesome and gotten me to keep Magnus prime as well, but I can understand why they didn't change his colors much

    On GB, you pop out the little red thingy sitting under the God Ginrai chest/truck front. Then you slightly open up (split left-right) the back of Magnus Prime (the back trailer doors/legs) and slide the little red thingy in and then re-close his legs. I think.

    That's what the instructions say, but, as I said, you can't get a good grip to close it without the Godbomber peg falling out.

    For me the problem isn't the size of my hands, it's the number. I can't reconnect the two feet panels and hold Godbomber without an extra hand or two.

    Its really an awesome boxset! If anybody wants one and BBTS is sold out, buying on Taobao and shipping from China is an option you can consider, I hear the shipping fees are quite affordable. Siege On Cybertron is such a treat for us fans, I just hope nobody misses out due to exclusivity. It's not exclusive to any retailer here in China and there seems to be ample supply still.

    My Magnus Prime has a few issues, the bumper has a few scratches on the one side. His poor Titan Master, I gotta scrape out the one shoulder joint to get some flashing out, one shoulder has a stress mark, and his one arm doesn't want to sit flush in head mode.

    Other than that him and Tidal Wave are awesome figures. Thunderwing will be sent off to his new home soon, anyone still looking for a Metalhawk or Pounce hit me up. I'm interested to see if anyone would want to trade Pounce for Windraker. I'm a Decepticon at heart but beast aren't my thing.

    Any Seibertron-like breakdown of the deco differences between Magnus Prime and Ginrai?

    Finally arrived today. All the figures are fantastic, but there's one problem. My Pounce has two right arms. Anyone have one with two lefts who wants to switch?

    I heard someone had one missing, I've seen some issues with Ginrai missing the God Bomber ports, or his shoulders being messed up. There's been pins misfired on Metalhawk, plus shoulder issues with Tidal Wave. Unfortunately, it seems QC issues are plaguing this set.

    I think the issue is that it was produced in very low numbers. The lower the production run, the higher the percentage of qc issues is. It's the same reason Fun Pub figures seemed to have problems so often.

    Honestly the best thing to do is email BBTS customer service and explain the problem (include pics, if you can) One of my CW constructicons had two of the same hands and they sent me a replacement hand no problem, I'm sure they'll send you what you need to "repair" Pounce.

    I checked out mine last week and didn't notice anything amiss either. I hope people breaking up and reselling parts of their sets check their figures carefully before shipping them to their buyers. That could get messy if a problem comes up later.

    I'll give that a try. With a limited edition thing like this, probably less likely to have replacement parts laying around, but it cant hurt.
