    I finally got around to tearing apart Auroras gun. The screw was a little tight, but the real problem was the peg that the barrel pivots on was a little too thick. I shaved it down using an exacto blade. Probably would be easier to have used some sandpaper but my method worked pretty good. Now it's tight enough to stay stright and loose enough that I don't need tools to bring out the barrel.

    Hasn't there been any news on the next Not-Throttlebot? I'm hoping they don't scrap their plans on finishing them off..

    Can some one show an image of this supposed flaw as I'm unsure if it's structural or just paint an image would help please.

    The flaw is a hole on his left leg vent between the black kneecap and the blue part. It is very much NOT a paint flaw.

    Mine has the same issue. So far every ezample i've seen has had the same problem. Weird. Looks like someone went round the whole factory poking a hole in that vent..........

    Yeah it's so very simple, but adds the lights to searchlight.

    I got some truck from walmart that was like $4.99.. I can find the exact name of the truck toy brand if you need the info.

    the plastic quality, design, and construction of the ToyWorld Throttlebots can easily pass as an official Takara product.

    Technically TW already added lights to Searchlight. Namely the lights on his shoulders. They weren't they in the original pics, and got added after we complained that he needed his lights. It's not perfect since the lights were on his vehicle mode originally, but since they wanted to keep his vehicle mode as true to the real thing as possible I think it's a nice compromise.
