    Where can I find these guys these days? I’m looking for the individual bots but no dice anywhere. Not even Aliexpress. Of course the two years in which I took a break from collecting had the coolest stuff. Sigh.

    Sorry... What about the metallic version? Is it still available?

    Not really my thing. I have oily hands and I’d get fingerprints all over it and that would drive me nuts. Ah well, maybe there will be a reissue at some point. Hopefully in g2 colors lmao

    Ok after much consideration I rescind my last statement and would really like to get the metallic version. Is it worth having? I’ve heard of parts breaking and it worries me. Can anybody provide some input?

    I transformed mine both directions, no breaks - but there's lots of bits with tight tolerances that _risk_ breakage or scratching, most can be adjusted/trimmed carefully.
    @Lord Of Tetris described all the adjustments in this post, I agree with pretty much everything he says.

    I'm pleased to own this set, but be prepared for some challenges.

    Set could still use a straight reissue, maybe a G2 set.

    Don't think it needs a black/dark version as Menasor has always already had a darker color scheme.

    But TFM could do a Shattered Glass with recolor based on their impersonators from the episode "Masquerade".

    I’ve heard mostly about wildrider’s wheel assembly snapping off. Do you think I could loosen it up by carefully working it back and forth? And I can sand down tabs and stuff, that’s not an issue assuming that’s what you were referring to

    Yes, sanding tabs, minor trimming with a scalpel. Wildrider's wheels are another story. Mine have been fine - but they're flimsy! With care, I think they'll be fine.

    The major thing with wild rider is the hinge that movies the wheel assembly on the front. The joint is thin enough already, but now its slathered in chrome paint.

    Just placed an order for this fella a few hours ago. Really hoping nothing arrives broken but I guess all I can do is keep my fingers crossed for now.

    My wildrider had a break at that wheel section.... been trying to get a replacement for a while now through Showz. They said the company stopped responding to them. So that’s fun....

    10% off 1st Order coupon is neat and covers the cost of tax & shipping, making this more doable.....

    I was holding out for a non-chrome re-issue but...... oh what the hell. *orders*

    Sorry to bump the thread but I'm looking to sell my copy of Carnage and Disorder complete with boxes. I also have Generation Toy J4zz for sale if anyone is looking.
