    Fret ye not chum. No-one's actually expected to keep up with the ludicrous pace of this thread. It's not homework!

    So, sixgun. A nice figure, and good weapon options. Looks great. I do like these weaponisers. Got two sixguns, one to do up in full silver. I'd say sixgun is the best for weapon options, brunt is the best as a stand alone figure, but all three are great and worth having. Though i have one sixgun with tight joints and one is a bit loose on joints an ports.

    @Insurgent I've found wildly different tolerances across my Sixguns, particularly the red missile/gunbarrels, "finger guns" and the legs & hips, the legs and core I dyed for Sixiron 1.0, then Hexbomb, were the worst set I got (straight up dropping off from their own weight) and fortunately the heat of the dipping tightened them right up!
    Nothing to be sorry about, mate, that's reassuringly handy info to narrow it down to potentially being my further northward location rather than my tightness! ;)

    So I just couldn't help myself and ordered Powerlinx Hot Shot and Powerlinx Demolisher. So that just leaves Overload on my Armada list. Which isn't an easy feat for a decent price.

    Though my last Cybertron piece needed (Minicon Heavy Load) is proving much harder to find nevermind price. It doesn't help that bloody Quickmix got a repaint in Universe as Heavy Load :confused:

    No worries.

    Looks better than trying to combine Overlord and Quickswitch.

    They're not dropping off by themselves yet, but the legs do feel close to it. I wonder why such differences in tolerance? Ah well, the loose one will get painted so hopefully that'll tighten it up a bit.

    The usual with mass production, a bit of the slight variation in physical material, plus the fact the thigh gun barrels are in two halves so, alongside eeeeeever so slightly different amounts of plastic meaning not every component will fit as snugly anyway, not all of them will be assembled equally tightly either. Perfect is not a human scale, and mechanisation still often falls well short of it too!

    I can't remember, but given my thrifty ways, probably not!

    @Art Vandelay @Brooticus Cheers, Lads! Panic over, the doctor is in the house. Gonna have to wait until after this afternoon/evening door shift to check him out but he is here!
    Typically turning up at the exact moment I resigned myself to it being early next week for mine!
    Now I can stick to fretting about Lancer! :p

    @Brum Bot,
    Hope Bailey is feeling better soon!

    @tikgnat,
    That YF-19 is rather impressive, probably not a rabbit hole I need to be going down myself but intresting to see how other franchises do transforming robots.

    Gentleman robot!

    In other news, Nightbird has given up her gun to Sideswipe, and mastered the Way Of The Kerblam.

    Ahh, that explains it. Didn't realise the gun halves were two pieces.

    As utterly *unlikely* as this is; if anyone here gets buyers remorse on their Siege Ratchet....

    .....give us a nudge :oops:

    Robotkingdom are saying Dec 1st so expect Smyths to delay that release date 7 days at a time each week.

    Speaking of which Robotkingdom have Ratchet in stock for $45 plus shipping .
