    So I went and pre-ordered three Sweeps on Amazon. That’ll be budget for February. Scourge just doesn’t feel right with out his huntsmen.

    hope I get them and they don’t go like certain two packs did

    Wide releases seem to be doing better than exclusives. I have had a SINGLE wide release figure for all the stuff I collect get canceled (Scutosaurus from Jurassic World). Everything else I've managed to get rather easily.

    “It’s time to play ‘End of the Line, My Valentine!!!”

    I know I’m far from the first to reference that line, but I finally feel I’m able to now that I’ve got a second WreckGar.
    Looking forward to some inevitable Junkion remolds that, if I remember right, are rumored to be on the way…

    I have the same issue as you do. I just took some thin Styrene tubing, cut them to size and wedged them inside the plastic tooth for the ratchet joint. It's a good enough fix for the knees and hip ratchets. My only real issue is that the hips, when moving out to the side, they are super loose, and since those have rivet pins, I can't get in there to tighten them up.
