    This is great! Even the trailer attaches in the end just like in the cartoon.

    Am I doing something wrong? I lock the mechanism to secure the flight stand but it still can’t hold any weight at all. I can simply push it with the outside of my finger to unlock it. It can hold no pressure whatsoever.

    Any suggestions?

    Sums it up.

    This is what's you're looking at on the inside. A possible solution may be adding a spring on the inside to push the locking mechanism into the groove more securely.

    Oh dear this is a terrible design.

    I have my official first true grievance with this release.

    Guess I’ll have to buy a KO Dinobot stand. Too bad 36 Megatron can’t use a matching one.

    The Box thread is in my signature. You can access it from there, unless you’re using mobile.
    What's in the Box: Masterpiece Parts Counts

    I know where they were going with it, but instead of a spike design, the locking mechanism should have been a block, or supply more contact space to hold Prime when using the stand.

    Thanks folks :thumb 
    Yes I did, long time ago. Actually dug up the old file so I could reuse the backdrop I created for it.
    They certainly nailed the toon vibe!
    Oh I'm sure it would look very different if I didn't cheat and cut a bunch of transformation steps out :lol 
    Cheers :cool:

    Have you ever considered remaking a whole episode? I also loved the work you did with LazyEyebrowReviewer.
