    I wanted to mod Omega Supreme's head to look like the cartoon (clear shielding, gray inner helmet, orange face, blue lightpiping) but that thing is glued tight. Taking out the 2 screws does nothing...unless I'm missing something. The neck has regular pins. The base of the neck has a huge flathead pin.

    I'm hesitant to pry the head pieces apart. On mine, there is a slight gap on top where I could wedge in a razor or even LEGO separator to get started. But again, I'm hesistant and from prior experiences, this process will usually break the internal tiny pegs (if there are any). Jetfire's head was easy to take apart because there's no glue.

    Because of how lightpiping works, color choices are limited if the plastic is not clear. Shining a bright blue LED will just make the eyes look...yellow. Shining a bright red LED, however, will make the eyes look orange.

    The cannon ponytail (for lack of better term) is completely optional. It's not used in alt mode. So, if you like it for nostalgia reasons, then great. If not, the cannon ponytail can collapse down to give a cleaner head look.

    Awesome!!! Though looks more like Blaster mode ;) . That’s one helluva boombox!

    Side note, all the blast effects nicknaming the last few pages, hilarious and entertaining. And yet weirdly I feel like I was reading Dr. Seuss posts. Fun stuff!!!!

    I’m impressed they let you price match to another Walmart. Two years ago was when they basically cut down all Amazon price matching, and even before that we’re refusing to price match a clearance item at another store.

    You must have used superb kindness or ‘aggressive negotiation’ tactics. Either way, bravo and congrats on the $45 jetfire!

    Siege Chromia is in my opinion the most underrated figure in the line. She has flaws, certainly, but overall I like her a lot.

    Too bad Blowpipe is a Con. They look good together.

    My headcannon is that the kibble on her legs flips down to use as a pair of jump jets for short range flight.

    The one problem with this is lack of appropriate effects parts. However, I think I can solve this. I've been looking at ordering some stuff from Grimlock's Forge and I should been able to make it work by modifying 4 of the small blast effects for this purpose.

    Did they say why? Was it an online preorder, or in store?

    Cut off a small peg on the inside of the leg kibble. Rotate forward instead of back, and it looks much cleaner.

    Online preorder on 8/23. I call CS and they aren't sure why. I need to give it a few days and call back. Very odd.

    Edit: I just got the shipping confirmation that the Zetar I preordered at the same time shipped. I called back and the CS rep said it was cancelled as a security glitch. They are trying to fix it. Ugh.

    Ok...this is what I'm talking about (with pictures lol).

    The panel in question is the piece that swings in to make the side of the vehicle on the right hand side.
    20190913_175642.jpg

    The piece that swings down has a slot that is meant to clip into the tab on the outside calf.
    20190913_175655.jpg

    When connected it immediate pops back out. It works perfectly on the left side.

    Absolutely not the end of the world, but a tad annoying. I really do like this figure, along with Ironhde. I presume this is a common issue with this mold? LOL
