Emgo replied to my comment that he haven't got the trailer. So don't assume yet.
It does look like Motormaster is sucking a very strong mint, realising they are too stong then getting angry. Not many other materpiece figures have that kind of range!
Ha. Probably not gonna use any of his faces but those look fun. Angry face is probably my favourite.
What can I say, those motormaster faces look really accurate to the screen captures, but the problem is I just don’t like those screenshots.
Haha Xtb just can’t win.
Here's how I fixed the broken tab on the leg. I drilled through a little piece of model sprue with a 1/32 drill bit. Then I threaded a tiny machine screw through it. I then drilled a small hole where the broken tab was and threaded the screw/sprue into it and glued the shit out of it. It's a little crude, but seems to be working. Getting a dynamic pose is a balancing act.
I thought I'd be ok with the height difference but I'm not. Went on and bought Bruticon as Chronos is so good, and it and Constructor would just overshadow the MMC version. Not to mention if I ever got any other combiner or a non gestalt like Gabriel. MMC's bot modes are great tho, and I love what Zeta did with Bruticon's sculpt, but obviously to each there own. As a famous YTer said, "If you like it, you win."
good job. I had the same tab snap off on menasors right leg. I glued the missing tab back on but I'm not confident it will hold. I will take your tip into account should I need to do any repairs
I'm happily using MMC's for each combiner teams bots, and filling in the combiners with FT, XTB, and Zeta. So far so good
It’s a real shame since I like the idea of multiple faces for motormaster but these are just plain weird. I think they should just have done a screaming, smirking, laughing,and grunting face so you get all the faces you need for motormaster to have emotion but what do I know? I’m not the almighty and deceitful Keith.
Hey thanks, I really wanted to use the broken tab but could not find it anywhere. I had to go with plan b.
Nice one. I emailed TFS Express to with this issue, but I doubt XTB will be able send a replacement part.
so I may have bring out the small drill at some point
The pic w/ Kronos is the money shot. Any more pics of those two together?
So, would everyone who has the final product in Menasor mode agree that it's difficult to pose him? If that's so, that's a shame, because if Fans Toys version ends up having better/stronger pose-ability that'll be the clear choice, for me at least. Then I'll put Xtransbots back into bot or car mode where they'll stay (was leaning towards FT's for combined and Xbots for bot mode anyway). Anyone else feel the same?
My barrel wouldn't budge. Loosening thevtwo front screws a bit fixed it right up.
What's a good price for the 4 limb bots and motor master without the trailer used?
I had the set, sold it, but kind of miss their bot modes. Not in any mad rush to get them and wouldn't mind nabbing them used if the price was right but just wondering what kind of ballpark I'd be looking at...
Zeta Onslaught looks good. MMC's stuff is too chuggish for my taste and that Blastoff is a total head-scratcher.
Duuuuude! That looks awesome! What kind of cabinets are you using if I may ask? I want to get rid of my detolfs and yours are just the thing I'm looking for!
Say what? Of the available Combaticons, MMC's set is by far the most 'toon accurate (with the exception of Onslaught, who is more toy-like with some cartoon detailing). What's puzzling about their Blast-off?
They are currently the most toon accurate but they also don't really fit my idea of MP aesthetic. Someone can do better. XTB, FT, whoever. Too many sacrifices made for the all-in-one. They look off standing next to FT or XTB stunticons. And Blastoff missing ankle rockers screams chug-level engineering and he basically has no thighs. Easy pass. Brawl and Vortex look nice though.
Thankfully still IKEA, so you can get them at the same place
These are the standard Billy Bookcases, but I opted to switch all the removable shelves with glass ones ... I think at the time they were $5 for the short shelves and $10 for the long...can add up fast depending on how many of these you need but you can’t argue with the result!! I ended up donating the original white shelves to a local toy shop.
In my picture, these also all have the extension pieces put on top because the ceiling height in the room could accommodate, FYI.
