    That's the alternative way... If you are able to take the pin out, then you should be fine. Check the one I previously posted.

    Not that we couldn't, it was just a personal choice to go with the Dancouga design, plus it allows for a better combined weapon mode IMO.

    Yeah, I had seen those, but while I have punched a pin out of a TF once (TAV Crazybolt to remove his gimmick), that was a figure I paid less than $30 for and wouldn't have felt so bad if I'd broken it. This guy however is MUCH more expensive, and I just can't conceive trying to alter him and potentially break him in the process.

    He's scheduled to arrive today though, so maybe I'll look at that area while I'm fiddling with him to see how I feel about it in hand.

    That doesn't look too bad at all.

    Mine just arrived.

    Now I just need to give him a little time to get to room temperature and I'll check him out.

    Wow! He mutilated that old neck piece. Mine's still in one piece with no damage. My way is a little easier and you don't irreversibly damage anything. Also, didn't use the new pin or need to drill anything.

    Wait, let's say I removed the existing pin by cutting the piece out just like in the clip. Do I then use the existing pin for the new part or the new pin? Do I still need to drill or shave anything?

    Just opened my Ironshell up and transformed him.

    Question, does everyone else's have moving forearms or is it just mine? The pieces seem to flex for no reason, but seem to be assembled correctly.

    What do you mean by "moving forearms"? If you mean what I think you do, yes, it's not entirely solid and seems to be designed to flex open a bit so the wrist has clearance to fold in/out for transformation.

    Why not sell the backpack with the upgrade?? It could be alot easier just selling that than removing pins.

    Because the backpack is held in by more pins, maybe?

    I just want someone to finally realize there's money to be had with fun new CW compatible limbs, torsos, and accessories.

    Also, add mine to the group bummed that a set of G1 weapons wouldn't include Snaptrap's. I get there were some personal decisions made, but was really looking forward to that.

    I don't demand G1 accuracy in all aspects...but it seems off to depart from that here.

    For those who got Mentarazor be careful. Just transformed him first time and the single peg that secures the wings to the body in alt mode already broke... :( 

    Guess i'll just have to keep in combined forever, but unfortunate.

    Oh man. I would TRY to call/email your retailer and get that replaced or something. If you cant, then that makes me cry.
