    Yeah the arms are compulsory (original arms glued together) as it has additional pegs to lock in with the backpack. Thighs are a pretty straightforward swap with one screw on each. So yes, TDW might be more for you.

    I use the TDW kit and did manage to snag the upgrade that has a cape it's the same as the Starscream one just black over purple. I heard some had issues with the Perfect effect upgrade installing was an issue some bought a 2nd Grimlock because of it and if you got the Takara Tomy version then def go with the TDW kit that is designed for it. I did hear the feet pegs can be too large and cause the 5mm ports to snap on some of the figures for both thou mine are okay. I will attach the 2 pics sorry swoop has stickers now thou not in the pics and I have changed the weapons over to that combining one mostly.

    Shoot I had heard people having that issue with the stock feet already. Is it something sanding the pegs on the TDW kit would potentially avoid?

    3p groups did that for a tighter fit, which was dumb because it just ended up breaking or cracking ports.

    Yes it will. I have their Volcanicus and Abominus kits. I sanded the pegs on both sets of feet and have had zero issues.

    I would try it out first and not ram them in there they are supposed to be friction tight maybe slight sand on a side over all the way around but progress slightly around with light strokes if you find it's too snug but I would def be hesitant on sanding or trying to ram the pegs in.

    Can the TDW hands hold the swords that come with the Takara version?

    Yes it does. They’re all 5mm.
