    Finally my set arrived after almost 6 weeks in transit. It's a decent set, a bit dated as to be expected, and will act as my bot mode placeholder until MMC/XTB/ZT/FT releases better set.

    ^This was the real surprise of the set, a clear model kit, legends scale Grimlock. I fat-fingered it of course and broke the swing arm that connects dino chest to the robot chest. Oh well, super glue be thy friend.

    I broke my swing arm too, looks like it's a common issue.

    You might be able to dip the swing arm in hot water before clipping it on to stop it fracturing.

    Bit late for that now, but a good headsup for people who still have to assemble it. The joint is just too tight and the plastic too fragile.

    Same peg broke on mine as well and the peg is stuck in the gun handle now. It would have been a better idea to have him packaged in individual bot modes instead of combined, way less possible connections to break.

    Anyway, showz said they have me covered on the replacement parts so we shall see.

    I must admit, the set is very visually interesting to me, I really like how they look on my shelf.

    Yeah ill have to contact them about it. Also...i simply cannot get the front of the ship on laser csnnon to swing from underneath far up enough to peg it in w the gremay peg in the top. Its about 1 to 2 mm short of it. It looks to me like that gray arm apparatus wants to make it but is not long enough???

    Same happen to me first times I transform it, but was a matter of line up all perfectly and then works fine. Don't know if is your case but could be something similar.

    Fortunately, I will never transform my set again other than from the initial combined mode to bot mode. I am a ham-handed oaf and breaking MP and Legends scale transformers is my reverse superpower.

    Yeah, I also thought it was a QC failure, then it suddenly went in. Same itty-bitty peg on Strafe came broke though, but didn't think it's worth replacing, just broke the other one to match.

    Csn someone show me how theirs lines up? I watched a transformation vid from bot to ship and followed it exactly...mine just doesnt do it. I thought maybe the smaller gray piece in the apparatus was installed backwards or something.

    Probably one of the most underrated third-party combiners. Here's some of my older pics.

    IMG_20191219_020410.jpg Can someone check this piece on theirs (someone who can get Laser Cannon into starship mode) and see if it looks the same as mine? Im wondering if the gray pieces are put together wrong and not giving it the last 1mm difference so I csnt tab it in?

    Also...are these two waist bits installed backwards? Should they be swapped? Looks like they are supposwd to fold down in combined mode, as seen in the background pic but they cant on mine... IMG_20191219_023205.jpg

    I don't have mine in front of me to check, but that whole waist section should be able to rotate 180° so the combiner hip skirts are on his back side in bot mode. The first part you mentioned should also be able to spin around.. I think you have it on the opposite side from where it needs to plug in.

    Yes, they're backwards. They're supposed to swing down and fill out the waist a bit more in combined mode (reference the combined mode pics directly above your posts). Mine arrived the same way a few days ago and it really confused me until I watched a transformation video. Fortunately it's a very easy fix (though it does involve removing several screws to get the torso open, so take care not to lose any!)

    I had to sand both pegs on Scattershot so Lightspeed and Nosecone could fit well.
