    Fixed the thigh rotation on both legs of Fury, and now he can pose with the best of them.

    I’m loving these two but Xtransbots forgot to put a slot on the back of Fast so I can’t peg it in now. Oh well, what are you gonna do lol IMG_5501.jpeg IMG_5503.jpeg

    got em stickered up by Jimmy Hauser and @RoboLukas last night and transformed them and I'm very happy!! Runabout's thighs are seized and knees loose, but that's it. I am really happy with them though!

    Ordered X-transbots punch counter punch and had decided to get this 2 to display with him. However, I found bond/James incredibly underwhelming. So I'm looking to sell a brand new fast and fury/runabout and runamuck (and james/bond aswell lol). Runabout is still sealed in box while runamuck has had the tape cut. Both never transformed and come with unapplied stickers from jimmy hauser

    Got my replacement part from ToyDojo today, so now Runabout is whole again:

    (The color does match, the lighting is just doing something weird here)

    Question for those who have painted Fury's face: Did you disassemble the face? Is it possible to remove the eyes?

    Open up the head, remove the face from the front of the head and yes the optics come out of the face as a seperate piece. just dont scratch them.

    What are you thinking about going with? I think I've only seen one or two other ppl post pics of theirs... someone was going to try just remove the white and see what was underneath, but I don't remember seeing pics of that.

    Gotta think about it first. I haven't got much experience with painting my figures. Years ago I painted Toyworld Seaspray's face black and to my surprise it turned out pretty good. Last week I decided to give Maketoys Thrust a white face. The result is far from being perfect, but I'm happy with how it looks. So I'm not going to do any fancy stuff. On both occasions I worked with Revell colors. Maybe I'll do the same here.

    In the toon his face has the exact same color as the body. It will be difficult to find an exact match.

    That's why I was curious about using some isopropyl to strip the white paint

    Is there anyway to fill the red on Fury's chest? Also, who currently has the best labels/stickers for the pair?

    I did mine, but I didn't go as dark as the toon.

    Couldn't hold out for XTB to announce a youth version so I bought the pair. @jimmyh Are you still making the vinyl labels for these two? Didn't see any up on eBay.

    Some people want their figures to look more like the G1 toys than like the cartoon, it isn’t for me either but I can understand why others would want it

    Just out of curiosity, which stands are those? I have some smaller ones but I'd like some that are strong & sturdy enough for MP bots.
