    Out of the 3 members of this new Deluxe wave that I've opened so far (haven't opened Skullgrin yet), honestly Pointblank is the most solid even with his robot mode deficiencies. He needed a 5mm port on the top of his vehicle mode instead of the ludicrous and loose fitting mid-spoiler placement the instructions recommend.

    My Crankcase is just as loose as WhiteMocha mentioned. The third mold use after Skids and Burnout and the rear wheel design is one of, if not the worst wheel designs ever. One of mine falls off with only the slightest movement. Surely a redesign to incorporate a pin wouldn't have been too much cost?

    Dead End has a weird foot peg into car mode issue where if you don't get that plastic hook in the middle together enough and then push those feet into the trunk area until they click or snap, then they will be all over the place. Glad he has an awesome bot mode and nearly finishes Menasor.

    it wouldn't be as easy as just 'adding a pin' they'd have to remold that entire section to accomodate a pin and the figure already has so many new parts, so yeah, it would have been too much

    If I can pick up a Burn Out and a Crankcase on sale/clearance, I'm thinking I'll take them both apart and switch out the red/blue robot pieces and heads. I'm still not enthused by the grill gun, but I think Burn Out may work better wearing the Crankcase mold than the Skids one.

    You're having way too much fun with your Inferno. I'm surprised he hasn't gotten around to Dr. Mrs. The Monarch yet.

    Hi and hello!!!:) :) :) 

    I don’t transform my transformers, I leave them in robot mode. The way I did it won’t work in alt mode. I have seen somewhere on here someone was able to do it and it looked ok in alt mode.

    My in depth custom habits are long gone , but I am sure there is a way to separate that piece from the back of their heads to make it look better in alt mode!!!
