    Glad to see so many positive feedbacks on this guy.

    Mine came with a very loose left shoulder, and upon a brief look it doesn’t look like it can be fixed by tightening the screw. So might have to nail polish the post.

    Aside from this and the apparently universally loose waist rotation, I’m very impressed with his design. I hope after I fix his shoulder I’d be enjoying him much more like all of you guys do!

    Have anyone's Amazon pre-orders shipped? I see that Pulse is shipping now in addition to him being available at Target.

    In a word, absolutely awesome. Stylish face, strong silhouette, super possible and no kibble except where it’s supposed to be. Bot mode is nearly perfect.




    My Amazon order has not shipped, still showing October 1 ship date. But Pulse came through over the weekend.

    I was worried I wouldn't like the alt mode. I'm hand, I love the alt mode. This is an all time great voyager. Nothing to complain about.

    Mine just came in, and he's as good as advertised. I said it once before, but I'm gonna be more committed to owning every repaint and retool of this mold than I have for any seeker ever. It's a more fun mold, and there's the bonus of them being able to ride each other. Plus with how he's designed, major remolding such as new chest plates and limbs shouldn't affect the alt mode all too much.

    Mine has the gap too. Are we talking hair dryer heat, or something stronger? I’m not really experienced with using heat to mold plastic, would you mind explaining your method? I don’t wanna ruin mine by trying to fix the goat.

    Hair dryer works. I personally dip the part I wanna fix in hot water. After bending it into the position I want, I run it under cold water to let it set.

    After some time with the toy, I've notice some joints get loose easily and may need to be tightened/floor polished. On mine the waist and left shoulder (the joint that lets the arm swing outward) have loosened enough to move/dangle when the toy is handled, and the arm will not stay up is one of the tires is attached. The hip joints (outward swing) are a smidge looser than I'm comfortable with, but not problematic, at least for now.

    Only messed with two of them last night and maybe I am just not doing it correctly, but I can't get it to slot in to ride for shit. Is it pretty loose in the seat.

    Also, great figure, I swore to myself I wasn't going to army build (and cancelled my Amazon preorders), but I'll be damned if I can't help but pick these up when I see them in store.

    Found two Wreck Gars this morning. Looking forward to displaying them together as bike and rider.

    I know we are likely getting a Selects Junkion, but I’d also gladly take a DNA Designs kit for a separate Junkion option as well.

    Are the spikes on him hard plastic or the rubberised stuff?

    The spikes on my copy are pretty firm. I'd say it's the same material used on the spinning axe weapon. The handle bars, on the other hand, are softer.
