    seems to be one of the prototypes/hardcopy verisons sold on ebay a few years back... missed that boat as well :eek: 

    it had almost no paint apps at all, lighter blue and all black wheels... I think this is one of them?

    this actually made me gasp and hate the autobots for a split second, :lol

    This has probably been asked a million times already but what are the two yellow translucent parts that come with Fierce Attack for?

    They're to help reinforce the joints on the ankles for combined mode. Not sure where they go, but they're included if one needs them.

    Oh okay, I see where they are. It's on the inside half of the foot. It's the ratchet piece.

    if those are the replacement pieces of the ones already installed, most people have broke their initial sets upon ratcheting the foot piece the first time... be careful, 2 sets is all you get.

    Yeah, I plan on leaving those ankles alone. Translucent plastic is already fragile enough as it is. No need to add to that with constant ratcheting of those ankle tilts.

    Would you guys be interested in a shapeways replacement for the clear ankle piece in a metal they offer? Not sure what the cost would be through them, but atleast you'll get a reliable ankle tilt that will never break.

    Just discussed it with ATP, he doesn't think it would wear it, but to be safe we will test both nickel and white strong flexible. He thinks the WSF should be good enough since the problem with the clear plastic is that it is so brittle and has no flex, hence why it breaks so easy.

    Yeah I'd think a slightly flexible plastic would be better than metal. Metal wouldnt give, meaning the teeth are the part that is giving with every ratchet.

    I'd be in on a set of those ankle replacements....haven't had issues yet but might as well have them for the long term.

    A bit pricey for a KO. But then again WB01 is basically a KO as well.... Things that make you go hmmm...

    I think we've seen KOs of Sly Strike and one other but we haven't seen the whole team IIRC.

    So tempted to say something but I shouldn't start it again.

    Agreed.

    For $165 more you can have a set of originals. Sure it's more money but, I imagine, they're better quality than a ko version.

    Yeah, I'll buy a set. I haven't been using the ankle tilts, since the replacement WB included would have the same problem, anyway.



    I'm definitely in for the Vortex optics, as well. I've been hoping that yellow optics for Onslaught will get announced, too.
