    I don't know what they were thinking with that shoulder design. He can't even lift them up laterally without flopping around

    I believe that should be a design flaw as I've seen the majority of people's copy have this issue (certainly happens to mines).

    Still out of stock from Amazon Amazon! The $75.99 deal must have caused a surged to deplete the stock! You can't find this out in Youtube Arizona no?:ev:

    I wish they at the very least had washers incorporated.

    Yeah I consider it a design flaw, a figure this big shouldn't have such a small pin joint for its shoulders. I would've gladly done without the tearing apart limbs gimmick in favor of a proper ratcheted joint but the figure is what it is and the only solution is finding ways to tighten the shoulders.

    Floor polish. Matte or gloss varnish for model kits. It's pretty much the same stuff.

    What’s odd is my copy doesn’t seem to have any looseness at all even in the shoulder area, is this common?

    Who is UM? Anyway using the JP continuity with relation to the recent release of the G1 Scramble City, Season 3 to JP Headmasters.

    Possible chronology:

    1. Dion (UM or not UM)

    2. Siege UM (with the Car Robot Inspired deco), so upon arriving on Earth, he got the Teletram treatment which converted him to a more Terran looking vehicle. Functional internal white "Convoy".
    Continuity: Before Scramble City after B.O.T. in the US series or the Ultimate Doom in the JP.

    3. ER UM
    Continuity: Scramble City anime, Legends Metroplex Vs Dinoser where the climactic battle destroyed Dinoser, bust Metroplex's transform cog and also injured UM (okay, that part is my speculation as UM is indeed City Commander) who was repaired by both Ratchet, Wheeljack, Perceptor and perhaps with some assistance via the Matrix, Alpha Trion. Galvatron2 is also destroyed but with a wandering spark (UW Galvatron).

    4. SS-86 UM, as a result of that battle, UM who used to have a separate white Convoy body is now permanently fused as he transforms into what we have now. Bigger and beefier almost Dinobot scale.
    Continuity: TF the Movie 86 up to Season 3 to JP Headmasters
    UM dies (1x) under the Sweeps and is resurrected. (2x) under 6shot

    5. Laser Convoy UM and Legends UM with Alpha Trion
    Continuity: Post Hm, THS-02 Black Convoy, Legends (it gets iffy as in the THS-02 story, UM is summoned back from the Matrix but gets his skid plates kicked by G2 Galvatron in his G2 Laser Convoy form, then we get the later Legends retcon where he now has the Nick Roche design so can be merged).

    Got too much time to kill.;)

    110 pages! Has there been any solution to the stress being put on the outer pegs of the front of the car carrier? My copy already has a pretty bright stress mark on the left side and I really want to minimize further damage.

    My gut feeling is that it benefits whomever SS86 Magnus may be pretooled for and will make more sense if there is a later use of the tooling in mind.

    If you have anything water-based using polyurethane it should be close

    Amazon is taking orders again at $75.99 with a future restock notification. I have some credit with them so I was able to knock him down to $65 after taxes, which is on point with how much I think he's actually worth. I should have another $10 credit coming which I can apply towards this and knock it down to $55, the price of a leader.
