    Update! Not only did I buy myself the WnR Impactor, Leadfoot, and Twin Twist via Amazon, but I got an email saying Impactor and Leadfoot will be showing up not on 12/20, but tomorrow! Here's hoping the QC gods smile upon me again! (Twin Twist is showing up 12/20.) :D 

    (I also got Kingdom Slammer, but he's coming between 12/20 and 12/22 because he isn't coming from Amazon directly.)

    Hate to double post, but I got Impactor and Leadfoot a few hours ago today! And much earlier, I got an email saying Twin Teist got bumped from Tuesday to tomorrow! :D

    I'm contemplating whether to rip them open now or wait until Christmas. Thoughts?

    I'd be tempted to pop open the Leadfoot/MasterD set just to check for any occurrence of the unfortunate discolouration that has affected some copies, I got lucky with mine but better to know sooner than later, sez I!

    Oh shoot! That's a good point!

    How does MasterD look? There were some complaints about him having two left parts or something? I can't tell!

    It's not an easy check I'll grant you, no one can tell you just by looking at this photo - basically you'll have to get him off the card to check that all his limbs have mirrored ported/hollow construction sides, oh, and you'll need to get into the tissue parcel to check his tusks.
    Mine was fine again, luckily, BUT as is common with Fossilizers one may want to add more friction to some ports (it was mainly the torso shoulder & upper arm ports in need of care & attention on mine).

    Okay, I peeled through this thing as delicately as a brain surgeon.
    • Tusks are left and right as they should be.
    • I got the same pieces as the box says I should have.
    • Some parts have a looser connection to other parts, but I guess that's the nature of the beast? (Pun intended?)
    So it seems my copy of MasterD is okay. Hopefully Leadfoot's QC is as good or better.

    Yeah, so long as none of his parts have 5mm ports or constructional hollows on the same side you're on a winner!

    Update, it looks like the neck port doesn’t like to stay in the neck hole in mammoth mode and one of the front leg pieces does not like to stay connected to the bicep(?) piece.

    I guess it's probably irrelevant if this guy is supposed to be in pieces anyway?

    Aw shoot, I think my Leadfoot's left shoulder doesn't want to tab in like the right shoulder.

    False alarm, just needed a push. I heard a click.

    Still worth using something to add friction for when he's together himself, whatever your preferred method is, from easy mode Floor Polish to more advanced methods like a carefully applied very thin coat of superglue, choose your poison!

    Okay, two things:
    • His leg transformation is two and a half pains in the ass and I think his left ankle is a smidge loose, but when I have him posing like this, Leadfoot is pretty darn cool: upload_2022-12-17_19-34-57.jpeg
    • Twin Twist came home roughly 28 minutes ago! But apparently the Amazon guy couldn't be assed enough to just put him in my mailbox. Why is this a problem? Because it got rainy today and the box Twin Twist came in got so wet and squishy on one side. Silver lining, TT's actual box looks to be intact, but still, unprofessional of the guy to not even think about the mailbox.
    But yeah, Twin Twist is here, he has T30 Whirl making a cameo appearance in his box, here's hoping we get him and Whirl in Wave 2 of Wreck 'N Rule. (I actually have T30 Whirl somewhere, but he has a loose pinned joint in his hip which aggravates me.)

    UPDATE:

    Finally cracked open Impactor. I almost thought Spindle came without her lower jaw until I found that it was connected elsewhere. However, it takes less than zero effort to pop her robot mode hands (her feet in dino mode) right off.

    Impactor himself looks to have good tolerance…but his shoulder cannon comes off waaaaaay too easily. It's like what the actual slag?

    So, floor polish and/or super glue on Spindle's hands and Impactor's shoulder cannon? Actually the cannon bit might be moot if I get the upgrade kit which has an IDW shoulder cannon if I remember correctly.

    Oh wait. The IDW shoulder cannon relies on the friction clip thing. Oh shoot. :(

    eBay, the seller sold it as a build your own set. 2 OS KO Green warpath figures and 3d printed parts to complete the conversion. Think I paid like $30 bucks for them, worth every penny imo.

    You are partially right. The base was an osko of CW warpath that came in the green.

    Nice. If I wasn’t currently in the process of brokering a deal to *FINALLY* get Titans Return Fortress Maximus for (current) Titan retail on Facebook marketplace, I’d look into them myself
