Awesome! I knew it wouldn't be long! Can't wait for it to be available!
The Great Schemer has arrived, Super Starscream: "All the danger you can handle is already here, Floptimus Prime!"
I got mine today and fixed the issue by simply shaving down a bit of the plastic on each peg with an x-acto knife. Now they peg/unpeg with out any problem.
Now, people may say $50 is a bit too much for this guy, but my god this thing is an absolute masterpiece! Definitely going in the top 5 figures released this year (unless something even better comes along in Earthrise).
So last I heard from the collector store, They had tons of Ironwork, At least 10 of Hoist and 10 of Cliffjumper. But as of an hour ago, they only had 2 Wheeljacks left.
That has no business working as well as it does.
Also, how dare you tempt me to buy what was once an easy pass for me.
Hoist is AWESOME. Didn't expect it to be at all.
I’m usually not a fan of a paint wash on most figures but that looks very good. Not overly done but enough to bring out some great moulded detail. Very nice!
i got Astrotrain; what's the red plastic thing for? It's like the decoded from the old G1 boxes. The instructions say this picture telling me to scan?...something?.... I've looked all over this box and the instructions and the toy. I don't see anything when looking through this red plastic . And i don't see a website link or anything. What is this for?
The Red Decoder reveals hidden messages or paths on the map piece located on the package incerts.
The thin piece of cardboard behind the package shell holding the figure.
Curious to see if reinforcing the fragile pegs of the crane by drilling some metal pin through those aforementioned pegs on Earthrise Grapple could solve the peg breakage issue, I went experimenting and did a risky "surgery" with my Grapple. The end results are pretty good as the metal pins act as a "skeleton" for those pegs which reinforces their structure and securing them from any future breakage.
It's not the easiest of small-scaled modifications that I've ever done with my TF figures, however as there's not much room for the maneuver of drilling the space for housing the metal pins through the pegs and any missteps could've irreversibly damaged those pegs; But once the housing space was ready, the installation of the metal pins are actually the easier part and the end result makes the pegs as solid as they should've been; At the same time, I also cut the pegs to make them a bit shorter which allows for easier pegging/unpegging maneuver of the part during transformation
It looks a bit messy for now, so I'll clean them up a bit later.
Check this... Please don't throw you box away just yet...
Having a bit of fun with my Grapple...
Smashdown: Moo...Moo...Moo, Moo? (Did you think Grapple could grab that wheel with his crane safely to his left side, without dropping it?)
Lionizer: Rawww... Grrr... Raww. (I think he can, probably.)
Strangely, Grapple's claw attachment piece was wide enough to grab on to a Lego "Tyre Street Ø30.4 X 14" tire piece directly without any mods, and the rubbery texture of the tire piece actually allows it to be gripped into the claw attachment quite securely, enough for it to not fall off at just the slightest touch.
Mad props for anybody that gets this reference.
Optimus loves his Micromasters.
A bit of double Rampmaster fun and demonstrating what you can and can't do with an A.I.R.Lock connector
does this require any type of disassembly?
I love how yours turned out but I’ve never done anything like that and I’m worried I’d mess mine up.
First two voyagers from this line are wonderful. Really hope this is indicative of the rest of the line.
The partsforming is definitely a head-scratcher. Kinda bums me out. But the chipping paint might just keep me from picking him up. He would've looked just fine with molded red plastic.
Lol, I need to go dig out my Huffer so I can get ready to do that as well.
