    It’s not selling well like the other two lines, so most retails don’t want to stock it as much as the others. Shame, I was really looking forwards to Drift.

    They're starting to pop back up at walmart and sometimes I've seen them at Best Buy. They're probably not popular because they're, well, I like them, but let's face it, the quality is crappy.

    Here’s something to chew on........
    BC3015BB-BEDB-4C72-AFF2-ED21D515450A.jpeg
    Given the simplicity of this line, this is a pretty damn proper Gnaw we got here.
    B3BA220E-0A39-458E-A7A5-B0957CA7646E.jpeg
    Despite not having the best articulation and fewer molded details, I’d say this figure gives the TR Legends Gnaw a run for it’s money. It’s like Hasbro brought him down to his very basic essence, and Cyberverse Gnaw is still pretty gnarly.

    4688F2B7-0781-4413-9861-CD03AA329A81.jpeg
    Again, not great articulation, but the way his feet are molded and transformed, Gnaw is incredibly stable. Very fun to still try some dynamic poses with him.

    That head sculpt is marvelous and I love his color scheme.

    Sharkticon Mode is so cool! Shame that the forearms don’t articulate at all, but who needs that with chompers like these.

    So smooth and deadly, I love it!

    Cyberverse Gnaw is an excellent homage to the G1 toy and cartoon. Could’ve used some more silver paint in the torso area, but for the price point, can’t complain too much. He’s fun, he’s robust, he’s a wonderful ‘Gnawly’ boy.

    Question, for folks who need to do such a thing, what tool do you recommend picking up to remove pins? I just bought the Spark Armor Autobot Ratchet and I'm fairly certain his right arm assembly was installed backwards. He can't turn into vehicle mode, and since it's just a matter of popping a single pin and removing two screws to take his torso apart to flip the part around properly... well I'd like to just nab a pin remover by weeks end and try to fix the QC assembly problem before I go through the exchanges hassle.

    At least I hope it's just backwards and not two left arm joints used in the figure... But it definitely looks upside down, I just popped the two arms off the joints and the right upper bicep with ball joint section definitely appears to have been inserted the wrong way. Thank Primus for simply construction in toys these days, I mean it's possible there's some glue to keep the parts together, but it just looks like a simple two screws pin through the plastic situation.

    Anyway, I digress. I know some upgrade kits include the piece, but I'm not buying one of those just to get the right kind of tool. I'd rather just purchase the tool. Advice please.

    Incidentally these Spark Armor figures are really fun.

    Don’t forget about Maccadam/Alchemist Prime’s build a figure! A335233F-F0FD-4D5D-BE25-2C72EE6E99B1.jpeg 604E0BBD-388A-4DE5-BCF4-18BB3E2C2D1F.png

    I use a pin punch:
    https://www.amazon.com/Stanley-FMHT...words=stanley+pin+punch&qid=1570129644&sr=8-1

    I chuck it up in my drill press so I get a slow even push in/out. You can use a hammer or you can sometimes just push it with your hand depending on how tight it is.

    They released Maccadam/Alchemist Prime? OTOH, that's pretty cool. OTOH screw it being a build-a-figure.

    Unless of course you get the whole dude in one box.

    the whole concept of build a figure means hes in pieces with all the other cyberverse figure. You can only build him if you collect them all.

    Count me in for that Shockwave. As far as he is concerned, Cyberverse has yet to disappoint.

    Yes I do. You also do know that there are toy-kits that allow you to assemble a whole figure right?

    With Hasbro's shitty ass distribution and retailers less willing to stock Cyberverse, screw that noise! They can keep him.

    I've used this for a whole, but not sure how thick the pin is for Ratchet
