    Looking great! Welcome aboard :) 

    Ooooooooo! I’m in. Hope he hits Pulse soon.

    Can you please talk to my guys and ask that the panels stay clicked? Both have the same issue...right leg panel keeps popping out. If your Ironhide can teach my Ironhide how to behave properly l would be a happy boy ;)

    Not sure if you're talking about this but I actually suspect the 'door' side panel on Ironhide is one of those design factors intended to prevent breakage from moving joints in unintended directions and considering Ironhide's transformation I can quite easily imagine those flaps being put under a lot of stress if the legs aren't 'just so' when you transform him. Chromia's 'panties' I think may also be a case of that as they tend to come off when you fold her legs forwards and upwards a lot. That said of course anything that relies on friction is susceptible to variation in mold quality which is probably why some people have trouble with them coming off TOO easily.

    yep. that crotch piece flies off if you look at it funny. haven't decided if I'm going to glue it or chuck it in a parts bin. floor polish fixed her floppy hips. thankfully, mine has two arms that feel just right.

    How many Battlemaster effects has everyone got? I've got two pairs of zooglies, a kablammo, a swoosh, and a couple of p'kaaaw's. Looking forward to getting Rung's zeeooowts.

    I think that all of you who are complaining about Astrotrain’s size are forgetting one crucial fact.
    He needed to jettison some weight, otherwise he would have never made it to Cybertron

    That Nemesis looks amazing, but 60 bucks is a little much. I’m upset I missed out on Star Convoy, so I’ll try not to screw up Again.

    Does Everyone’s Nightbird have horrible QC? Or is it just very common?

    Issue 100! This story blew my little eight year old mind. It reads a little...rough today, but I still feel it's power.

    Its the panel that folds down from his thigh to the side of his calf. It clips in place on the left but wont tab in on the right. Both Ironhide and Ratchet have the same issue. I'll take a picture tonight :)

    You are likely not transforming Skywarp’s head area correctly. The back of the neck plate is supposed to tab into the notches on the nose fin thingies.

    I glued both chromias and night birds. It was annoying.

    I'm having trouble picturing which part you mean it so I guess I got lucky with my Ironhide ^^'

    I'd just like you all to know know how much it makes me cringe every time I see people talk about gluing a piece you all insist on calling panties (aka knickers in the UK) to Chromia/Nightbird's crotch, ow.... :lol

    I'm mighty conflicted about him. On the one hand the red and black looks great but on the other while I know teal has traditionally been part of Nemesis Prime's colourscheme in various media it just looks wrong to me. And then they went and gave him a badass looking sword as well. On the other hand I don't have sufficient attachment to the character to shell out over twice the cost of Voyager Prime, especially when I would likely need to repaint the teal gold or something more like Prime Nemesis Prime and for the sword...

    I could almost understand it if they'd tossed in some new decoded Battlemasters or something too and/or some other accessories but yeah I don't see how the sword warrants such a markup from the original, though of course right now the UK/US sellers likely have an 'import' markup if the only official distributor right now is TTMall.
