    Sound advice.
    I would also recommend that after the fix is done to wrap some fine grit sandpaper around the peg and twist it a few times to remove a micron of the overall width to prevent it from getting stuck again.

    You won't be disappointed, its ranks number one or two along with Skywarp as the best out of the seven repaints. :)

    These may have been posted earlier somewhere. Also, due to new year celebrations in China, importing may not happen until February.

    Gap fillers mini kits from Shockwave Lab. Not painted (granted, the last gap fillers I've tried from them were painted and didn't even match).

    Oh, return it! I'd buy clearanced Soundwaves just for that piece!
    Oh, great! Good to see there's Walmarts already clearancing Apeface when mine has yet to stock the wave with Barricade...

    I think you may have been defrauded...bet this guy thought he could be clever and buy up a bunch of Soundwaves to get extra of the best weapon bit and sell everything else to get the money back.

    Ha, maybe. He also has a crack in his elbow joint right beneath the pin.The seller offered a return but didn't disclose that it was incomplete in the listing, but also didn't picture the grey gun (which I didn't notice) so it's a little bit my fault for jumping on what seemed like a good deal. I bought him because he came with the Shockwave's labs parts and Ravage and Lazerbeak as I didn't want to wait for overseas shipping. Oh well, he's a good enough action figure, but I'm pretty disappointed overall. Here's a picture:

    Edit: Oh I thought you bought a MISB one. Used and customized... yeah that's kinda sticky.

    Yeah, my fault really. I regretted bidding as soon as I did as it was covered in stickers in the listing, but thought I would lose because the bid I gave was really low. Joke's on me!

    Siege pretty much got me back into collecting transformers (stopped when AOE because the Galvatron toy looked so awful it shellshocked the then 12 year old me). It marks Hasbro’s return to form, after nearly half a decade of terrible toys. RID15 was too kiddyish, CW is just headswaps of 11 mediocre as hell molds, TR was pretty decent until Hasbro’s extremely questionable color schemes and awful QC ruined it, POTP is such a mess and an identity crisis it’s a mish mash of the worst aspects of CW and redoing it again along with pregnancy armor and translucent TR heads thrown in there.

    Siege is a “back to the basics” toyline where quality is put in the firstbefore bullshit bells and whistles that they can’t have the money to pull it off. Glad ER is basically Siege but with bases and not guns thrown together (cog doesn’t look great and Sixgun from what I’ve heard is wonky).
