    Eh, a little bit but I gave up when I realized that I can use the antennae off of the other head.
    I did, however, try it on one of my kids' transformers that had a stress mark and it worked really well, so I appreciate the tip.

    Very much agree. I keep grabbing him off the shelf just to transform back and forth because it's so much fun! My wife even was impressed with the engineering of the legs, and she normally has no interest at all.

    Can someone post a picture of the V2 head with the V1 antenna? I didn't realize that was a thing that could work.

    I recognize that, if everybody understands what you mean, then the word choice was successful but I just wanted to be sure: you know that's a made up term for Star Wars, right? In real life, we just call those scorch marks.

    If any of you break, or get a spare shoulder for TE01 V3, I will buy it. left arm.

    IMHO, that is the only thing that would make my V2 perfection. Unless I get a white crotch hip skirt replacement piece too.

    Capone is such a good looking MotorMaster !!
    The height and size in general are perfect scale..
    The only thing that looks a little odd are the feet and fake wheels. But I can deal with that, since we technically get a free Menasor for display as well !!
