    Someone really needs to put Peaugh and Skullface in a timed transformation contest. Five transformers each, ten piles of broken plastic six hours later.

    XTB needs to print this on a banner to hang around Stack's neck and include it with our replacement parts.

    MX-22 truly is to MP-22 what MP-44 is to MP-10.

    I don't have a trailer but that's cool because I have no room for an empty box.

    Even Prime has it a bit of it on the side near the headlights.

    I accidentally dripped too much ink on him and forgot to whipe it off. Whoops! Gotta remedy that soon.

    I'm honestly thinking about just rubbing all of them off so I don't have to think about it anymore. The only place where they seem like they're well-applied is the white shin flaps, which is, annoyingly enough, where they smeared them on my copy.

    Maybe Toyhax will save the day. If not, maybe some carefully trimmed G1 stickers will do!

    The tampos on mine are still ok but I'm definitely going to put a coating over them. Has anyone tried Pledge/Tamiya clear/any other clear coating? My only worry is if these tampos are so weak that something like Tamiya lacquer might dissolve them when applied.

    I could try making some replacement decals if there is interest.

    I've never found Tamiya clear to hurt anything like decals, but "very weak tampo ink" like this figure seems to have may be an issue. Future/Pledge though, never hurts anything, even if soaked in it.

    Mine came in. The other week and I still can't keep my mitts off him. One of the best figures xtb has made so far.
    Having said that, I'm not trans forming him. I don't wanna chance his arm falling off lol

    That issue isn't because of transforming, it would happen from spinning the arm around continuously and unscrewing it.

    Completely anecdotal, but I've had a few figures with this issue and each time they were make by XTB or KFC. I really wish they would stop designing joints with this flaw.

    When I was transforming Stack, I felt his arm loosen as I rotated it and was immediately thinking "I know exactly what that is... It's that thoughtful XTB design. Rotate clockwise instead."
