    Thanks for the suggestions. I just don't want something too big (Like the Nonnef Roller).

    Unfortunately, most of those options suggested aren't ideal for me. My country never carried the Centurion set anywhere; and maybe it's just something about how 3rd party kits manufacturers, in general, has something against where I live (Malaysia), but they either didn't ship to here or requires shipping fees that would empty my entire bank account.

    I think I only ordered from one Malaysian site ever (x2otoys) and it took almost 2 months to arrive here in the US (part of that being stuck en route due to the pandemic). Granted, it was like the only place that had the long sold out Perfect Effect parts kit for CW Devastator in stock (now gone).

    Did you ask TFSafari about shipping rates? They have that ZXB Roller (more economical option) and the MP10V trailer in stock.

    Fine for me. I don't mind something a bit smaller (As long as it's not too freakishly huge like the Nonnef one), as long as it's capable of towing the trailer or mount Prime's gun.

    I've never seen one with unpainted accessory ports. Weird.

    Mine arrived just as you see it in the photos.

    Those look really good, thank for posting! I'm always super curious to see what my designs look like when they get printed by Shapeways. Looks like the gray PA12 works reasonably well as a color for the wheel centers too.

    I’m honeslty not sure if it can just cuz it’s been in storage but I’ll get it out and compare it to the larger 3d printed roller which is basically the nonneff and other third party version

    My nonnef upgrade bits arrived yesterday. I love 3D printed stuff, but his moulded plastic really takes the cake.

    Do I need that Wheeljack kit? Do you need it, loof?
    Wow, that just blew me away... I mean at this point I should be used to it, but it's still amazing that people from all over the world can talk amongst each other. Every time I read something like this I can't help but gape in awe.

    ...That sounds weird, I'm going to leave now.

    Right. This line feels like it was designed by a single designer with a specific aesthetic vs. how CHUG was a playground for many creatives to mess around in. I'm probably wrong, but that's how it feels.

    But am I getting the full Wheeljack experience without it? I mean, it looks cheaply made and good at the same time.

    I mean I think from what I've heard, Nonnef kits are quality and not rushed toleranced jobs like some matrix workshop sets

    I know what you mean. I love that I can put siege sideswipe with Er sunstreaker and they go fairly well together

    The loof does, indeed. The plastic feels top notch, you just have to shave/sand away a little bit of plastic. Plus, you get TWO wrenches... Jackie can share with Ratchet. ;)  The clear wings are fantastic and his old spoiler halves just plug into the backs of his legs.
