    After I did those mods, Scrapper's hips was a lot more stable. Kinda like the universal joints from Takara Datsun brothers. The legs are fine until you shake the shit out of it.

    I had a replacement leg for my KFC reflector. I just took the hinge joint from that and cut it to fit.

    Took my time massaging the bits to bring Devy to life. I think I like the dry rub on there, but I think I'll like the chrome water slide even more.
    I love how mix master's barrel is wind-up. I've not seen mention of that in any of the combined reviews (didn't watch any robot mode vids)

    Gonna have to paint the visor too. I tried painting the inner edges to try to spread the light across better but it's still not quite right. Maybe a mild abrasive on the back side and a nice metallic red for the visible surfaces

    Anyone in the LA/OC area have the original green and darker purple version as I would do a 1:1 trade as I prefer the darker color scheme. DM me.

    My fix for the loose hips on scrapper in leg mode.
    I glued in a piece of plastic under the crotch to eliminate the gap between the crotch and the bottom of the feet. No gap, no wobble. My box had plastic corner protectors when it arrived. They are the perfect thickness.
    It is quite solid now.

    Just put together my constructor I received a few days ago

    This is my first and only Constructor. Gotta say the pictures did not do it justice

    Very happy in hand

    Woulda had mine on the 30th but UPS Ninja snuck up on the porch and left a note. Try ringing the doorbell today. Unless you just like carrying that thing around.

    Anyone else having problems with TFsource and their UPS restrictions? Yikes, per their shipping instructions, I can't pick up Constructor at a local UPS office, I can't pre-sign, or change the delivery address. Plus, UPS doesn't deliver on Saturday so my only option is to stay home waiting for Constructor to be delivered.

    I understand this is a $500 figure but this seems excessive. I've had MacBook Pros, TVs, and other expensive gadgets delivered to my home without as much hassle.

    Serious! WTF!

    I just got my set TW-C07X delivered by UPS from TFSource on December 30th with NO problems. Did not have to sign anything it was just dropped off left on my front porch.

    I’ll find out today. Mine is out for delivery. Tracking says signature required so we’ll see. I just hope they don’t try and leave the sorry we missed you slip without ringing the doorbell.

    I got mine yesterday. First Constructor. I know there’s been a ton of releases and videos, but can anyone point me to the best comprehensive video/guide? All I wanna do is put it in combined mode while being mindful of typical issues. I know it’s mostly ready to be combined but there’s also in’s and out’s and what have you’s with this mold (even though the Perfect edition is supposed to fix some).

    Here’s a couple videos.
    He has some issue with the right knee connection being tight but it was only an issue on the first release.


    Same thing with the right knee but he doesn’t show longhaul being connected.

    What’s the thing with the shoulder? I seem to remember people breaking theirs because they didn’t know to pull outward while turning instead of just turning? Is that right? Anything else like that?
