    I've never tried purple power on TFC plastic---you sure it won't craze the plastic at all?

    PS---will "knock off" purple power work the same? And there are a few variations of the real stuff. 3P figs are too expensive to experiment with. Every plastic reacts different.

    Does anyone know what the two small pink pieces that come with Not-ilator are for?

    PP is safe on almost every single plastic I have tried, and as long as its a degreaser it should work the same even if its an off brand.

    They slide in on top of the combined mode shoulder connections to help lock them in tighter.

    Out of curiosity, i tried to put it on tfcs snaptrap. But its head is too big and i didnt want to force anything, break something, ruin paint. I would cry if it perfectly fit though.

    The wait for my first Poseidon figures (Deathclaw and Cyberjaw) is tough but they'll be here on Saturday. Saw that Ironshell just sold out today on BBTS so I got worried and grabbed him and BigBite from TFSource. Now I only need Mentarazor and TKill. The pictures on the last page really sold me on going all in. Next to TW's Devastator this is my favorite looking 3P combiner by far.

    Waiting is the hard part lol. Also waiting for a single update on tentakil is killing me too but i can deal with it. But i looked at B.B.T.S and saw that too. I would die/be worried if you needed the torso for the combiner and its sold out. But im glad you were able to get ironshell.

    Got Mentarazor today, and it was a flawless figure - no parts misaligned or missing. Now that I've got four of them in a row on my shelf, I'm feeling very torn on assembling the combiner. They just look so impressive as a group.

    I'm jealous, mine won't be in till next week probably. I'm going to combine him, but plan on keeping them as individual bots for awhile because that's the way I played with them as a kid

    Got my deathclaw and mentarazor last night, transformed both to alt modes, I think deathclaw is my new favorite of the set. My menta has two of the same gun though so I emailed BBTS, otherwise flawless figures.

    Those weren't that bad, really. They're tight and all, but I used a tiny screwdriver to wedge it out just enough to get my fingers on it. There's a little black indented dot on each peg so you don't go scratching stuff up.

    Man they look good. I'm still kind of bummed about Liokaizer, I like him, and I think he's my second favorite TFC combiner after Hercules, but having to fix hips definitely dampened my excitement. I think I'll wait and see what the prices are for the set after all 6 are out.

    No, they are supposed to have alternate tabs to attach together for his turret mod, mine have the same tabs and therefore can't.
