    I finally worked up the bravery to transform mine after reading so many comments about broken tabs and scratched paint. This was a nice grab from Aliexpress at a decent price. Very pleased overall but I wish they had sealed the paint, as I already have some scratching after one conversion, more incentive for me to add detailing anyway. I borrowed some of my kid's toys because I couldn't resist.

    While I’m here, does anyone have an extra Bulldog decal I could buy or trade from them, or know who still has them available? I contacted Capcomkai and DMS but they said it was sold out and I notice the sheet has two... I may need one for my repaint project and I know it’s a long shot. Thanks!

    Does anyone have a junker of this figure? I need one of the side tires (shoulder ones).

    Unfortunately I can't help you with getting it printed but here is the bulldog decal I used for both my DF and SS Bonecrushers.

    I printed mine on clear decal stock - despite my printer not using white ink, it doesn't look too far off from the preexisting bulldog decal on the figure.

    Y’know, I briefly considered Scratch building a Bonecrusher from a Buffalo MPCV model kit at one point and found Bronco and Panda made a 1:35 model kit. The tires would be plastic and at 1:35 it might be a bit undersized, but if it’s only the shoulder tires it might improve the transformation?

    [edit] Found the Radicons thread where I got the idea HA Eps for scale:

    Heavy/Scratch: - Project-leader class bonecrusher

    This is actually a really good idea. I'd just need to see about building the connection piece to the actual shoulder part itself.

    I just looked again and apparently there’s a kit with just the wheels, lol. Apparently these ones look more realistic by being shaped like they are under load. HLJ had it for $30.
    If that doesn’t pan out, maybe rubber RC car tires would do the trick? Good luck finding an appropriate scale or size there, though.

    To any of you who has had this fig since it was new.. How's it holding up? All the reviews I've seen from around release look great, but how has it been long term? Asking in regards to breakages, tabbing, discolouring etc as I am very tempted to jump on one.

    So I bought the jungle camo version of this guy from a board member here. I feel like this figure should be a different character than Bonecrusher, so what would be a good name for him?

    Funny or serious? Bone-saw, Chonkers, Green Devil, Rambo (I like this one the most)

    Wow, you guys are fast!

    Cone Brusher made me snort; maybe he *likes* everything instead of hating. Rambo made me think of Rambone. o_O 

    Looking for a serious name, Bonesaw is pretty good, thanks for that one. More ideas please!

    Just got him and painted his green rims flat black.

    I like the names Landslide and Bone Saw. Maybe Bone Claw or Steel Claw, which is the figure's actual name from Dream Factory. I'll let you know what I settle on because I know you're dying to find out. ;)

    Is that a custom prime? Curious, never seen it before.

    It's one of the KO version, LT02 or something.
    I have one, but read that the feet ankle very easy to break, so never transform it, but it looks great.

    Here is the production from Showz website:
