    Lastly, if you want to match the reds a bit more, simply hit the shield with a coat of matte finish.

    This is after one quick coat:

    Got mine today as well, and yeah, he's super solid when all the tabs are engaged. It also isn't difficult to transform as long as you pay attention to where everything goes.
    The only part I'm not keen on is that the cockpit doesn't tab in tightly due to the ports being on thin pieces.
    Overall, it does feel like a Titans Return figure, but I'm glad to have it in Siege.

    I had that issue too. Try and get a finger or something behind the piece with the female end on it (which is actually the foot) while you peg it in the first time. Once you pop it in, it sits securely in there.

    there's no click, it should just stay in with the friction of the peg.
    if that's not enough for you you can use the usual friction enhancement methods(clear nail polish, pledge, superglue)

    Can confirm. The dullcoat makes the reds match much better.

    There's a spring inside the head that may be too strong. Others have reported that as well.
    Check out the review thread for solutions.

    Almost passed on Brunt. Glad I changed my mind. Have enjoyed mixing him up with Sixgun. 6AE3E6DF-56BA-4566-AD15-C92E7475927D.jpeg

    Well their plastic might've been initially. But have a drink on their behalf.

    No need to apologize. Just don't let it happen again.

    Clip on through friction. Either something is broken or use the tried and tested floorwax method (Floorshine is what I use).

    I'd say the blow drier but it is clear plastic, might cause warping.

    Slide the wings fully outward so they aren't bowing, and the back panels snap in securely.

    The clear blue forehead plastic is supposed to get pushed in when the mask is in place. There's a spring inside that pushes the clear blue forehead piece back out when the mask is off.

    Mine has not had that problem although multiple other people have noted it. The main issue appears to be the spring being too strong / long. You can't just take out the spring, otherwise, the forehead piece will not get pushed out again. Not enough friction will of course contribute but not the main issue.

    I posted a tutorial before on taking apart the head. The head is not supposed to be glued together although one person posted here about having glue. The most important part is having a screwdriver that fits flush with the screw head (the metal used for the screw is relatively soft and my first screwdriver almost ruined it).

    I try not to use Pledge anymore unless I have no other choice. I prefer using tape (electrical / vinyl type, masking if space is too tight for that, cut down to size or shape your need) since it's immediate and won't cause crusting. I've even cut out doughnuts to go around pegs / screw shafts. However, using tape means taking apart the loose area / joint.

    In this case, when viewing the clear forehead piece from the side, you could line the top of the piece or the chamber with tape and see if provides enough friction. Otherwise, you're gonna have to do something about the spring. Cutting down the spring a little bit is one option (can be risky as springs tend to get smaller with time anyways) or replace the spring (hobby shops may carry these...or your clicky pen).

    It's middle of November, and 2 toys left that are pre-ordered, Spindle and Astrotrain. Excited to end the year with them.

    Then it's straight to Ratbat!

    The wings should be slid back on their sliders in bot mode, otherwise they’ll get warped like yours are starting to do.

    That will also allow you to tab the white tabs of the cockpit assembly into the slots on the wings.
