    Sure no worries! :) 

    BBTS is really good about problems so I wouldn't worry about them fixing it. Either they'll send you a part or they'll send a label so you can get another (worst case) but at least they'll make it right.

    I have been eyeing this set for awhile now after the disappointment of Hasbro's Predaking in my eyes (looks ok but too damn big). After some thought I decided to purchase this. I'm not sure when I will ship my POL but look forward to getting it. Just an FYI for anyone wanting this set for cheap, BBTS only has 12 left in stock (you can check the amount by adding the max 10 then adding one at a time to check quantity).

    Got him and and he was WELL worth $120. I'm very pleased.

    The individual bot-modes are pretty meh. They lack some articulation I'd like to have such as bicep and wrist swivels. The beast modes are actually pretty great and after the excitement of the combined mode wears off I'll probably display the figures in their beast modes from time to time.

    Combined is solid! I love the look and proportions and he's incredibly sturdy. My only complaint is one loose thigh swivel and ankle rockers aren't ratcheted. The toe lights are LOL but kinda cool I guess.

    He matches up with my Combiner Wars gestalts perfectly.

    I think it depends on what you want. Personally I think Titan Devy and Titan Predaking are too big to go with the other HasTak combiners, so I have my Hasbro combiners with Warlord and TFC Hercules. I think it works pretty well, too. They're all closer in size that way, and Warlord even has the thigh-elbows that the officials do. The biggest difference is that the 3P stuff has better hands and feet, but if you have any upgrade kits for the officials then so much the better.

    I second this entirely and have exactly the same setup for matching Combiner Wars (Warlord and TFC Herc).

    I got my Warlord when he first came out. I had to figure out those mods myself, but I don't see any fixes for the thigh swivel other than floor polish so I thought I'd share what I did to fix this.

    Made a tool using my Dremel.

    Took the leg apart to make it easier to work with. Then folded the lower leg to have access to the pin for the thigh swivel, and used the tool to gently work under the head of the pin.

    I thought I may need my soldering iron to heat the pin, but both sides actually just popped right out with very little work, no heat required.

    Then find 2 screws slightly longer than the pins you just removed that will fit into the pin holes. I was going to Dremel "teeth" somehow to provide ratcheting on the thigh swivel, but decided to try some of that LazerBond and made some lines on both pieces. 20190127_124359.jpg

    Then put everything back together using the screws. The combination of the Lazerbond ratchets and making the swivel much tighter using the screws, there is enough resistance to the thigh swivel that it is no longer an issue.
