    Just purchased Centurion, and the guy who sold it to me threw in the Megatron mace. Centurion is amazing, and I love him in silver. Question, though. Does anyone else find the mace to be very tight in Siege Megatron's hand?

    I have read that complaint 3 or 4 times on these boards. As far as I understand, 5mm port problems are usually caused by the choice of plastic formulation, as each formula has slightly different properties of expansion and contraction, so your 5mm post ends up being 5.13mm or whatever. When you have a very tight hand like Megatron's and a very chonky post like this small pink plastic accessory, you can have problems.

    My mace fits on one hand but not the other on my Netflix (Siege) Megatron and I have to insert it from the bottom and not the top of the hand.

    Yeah. You can solve that if you modify the toy, but of course that's risky and permanent. If it bothers you, I would take a heat gun or blow dryer and heat up the pink post until you can deform it a little bit to reduce the diameter of the post. That's probably your most reversible and lowest-impact way of solving this. I would not try drilling out Megatron's hand or using sandpaper on the post.

    I'm hoping to pick up the Wave 3 Netflix Megatron over the summer, so hopefully it'll be good on that

    WTH is Trailbreaker doing?

    Try swapping Trailbreaker and Wheeljack. Trailbreaker may be able to stand if you do.

    He's sitting cross-legged. One of the only bots in this line that can do so! Thus, I get him to take advantage of the front rank, since he can sit down. It doesn't work quite as well for Hoist.
