    Got Tracks yesterday and am having trouble getting the front fenders to stay connected in vehicle mode, they keep popping the connector creating a small gap between them and the hood. Any tips for getting these to stay firmly connected?

    I used some nail polish and covered the pegs with a layer of it, works perfectly with both road rage and tracks in alt mode

    check to see if the pin/rivet is inserted all the way, and use pliers(with padding) to tighten it if it isn't.
    and if that isn't enough or isn't the issue, use hot water or hot air to soften the plastic and bend it inwards.

    If you had done a search, there's been several dozens of posts, even threads about it when he came out. Overall, you need to push the pin in further, and if that doesn't do it, there's other things that can be done.


    Here's the one I did: Minor/Repaint: - Kingdom Tracks, fixing the legs and paint

    I'm considering getting core class Soundwave. I never could bring myself to get Netflix one because I have the Siege version and it just didn't seem worth it. But it would be kind of nice to have a G1 style cassette recorder figure, and he looks fun. Definitely the best-looking one of the G1 core class bots I've seen.

    If you want his alt-mode to be (relatively) size-accurate, or just want a small Soundwave, I’d say pick him up. Either way, he’s getting repacked in Legacy as a Wave 3 Core, and Netflix Soundwave’s also likely to get repacked in Wave 2 (though unlike Core Soundwave, we don’t know for sure if he’s Netflix Soundwave, all we know is it’s A Soundwave), so you have plenty of time to thing. Just have to warn you; the joints on mine were really tight. Not “gonna break” tight, but in the sense they were hard to move for such a little figure.

    Just had to say that I'm in love!

    Kingdom Waspinator is such a well-designed and lovable fellow. Lots of articulation and beautiful deco. It automatically catches your attention.

    Even better is having an actual decent wasp mode, a first for Waspinator. The transformation is just as enjoyable with many clever steps.

    And here it is with his previous version and yes, the last Waspinator was taller and had a better weapon but aside from that, Kingdom Waspy beats him in every way possible with greater articulation, stability and more importantly a bigger fun factor. Is even more impressive if you compare it to the original T30 release since Kingdom Waspy actually has a deco worth a damn and you don't have to look up for an elusive exclusive to get it (Hell, the Takara versions even lack some paint apps included in Kingdom's). Easily one of the best figures from the line.

    I think it helps if you read their post in Starscream’s voice.

    Does anyone have comparison photos of Optimus Primal and Megatron with the POTP Optimus Primal figure?
