    I don’t think it looks bad. Both figures were white whales for me. Ironically, they both fall apart when I look at them wrong. Love how they look though.

    Does anyone ever feel the urge to transform all of his or her Masterpieces from one mode to the other?

    I mostly keep my collection in robot mode. Robots can be posed and reposed all the time, whereas vehicles are more static. Every now and then I transform one or two into vehicle mode, but I never have more than four or so on my shelve in vehicle mode at the same time.

    I feel the urge to transform all of them to vehicle mode now though. I transformed three of them today during a conference call, while working from home. Already looking forward to tomorrow, when I have more conference calls and I can transform a few more. :D

    The updated joints are an amazing addition to Star Saber. Glad you got them because they really make a difference. The updated hands are great as well.

    I do feel that urge every now and then and transfomr the lambos, datsuns and the seekers now and then.

    Well, transformed quite a few of them, but with two casualties as a result thus far... My Hound finally broke. The part holding the spare wheel snapped off. I don't know if I pushed it out too far or if it's simply because that part isn't connected that great in the first place... Part of the club now I guess. ;) 

    I'm more sad about the other casualty; one of the doors of Sunstreaker snapped off. The pin holding it came loose. When it came loose I was hoping that it was a screw, but it's a pin... Hopefully I can hammer it back in gently... :(

    ^What he said. This will be my go to diorama piece, replacing my first and second dioramas. When not in use, it'll go in the garage. Making them modular really saves on space, but I'd need an absurd amount of space to build the scenes I really want.
