    I hoped that the chest piece locks in instead of flopping around. That was probably a small design oversight

    I can see the appeal of most of the expansion set but I really hate the gun combo looking like it was ripped from the end of a Power Rangers episode.

    even transformission did a good job with the gun combo for their menasor. i don't mind the transformission menasor set.

    XTB made a pretty lame attempt at it

    ok, so I used the Molotow liquid chrome pen I purchased from my local hobby shop. I will need to patch up the remaining gaps to tidy it up. it's not perfect but the shiny chrome makes it easier on my eyes 16136414676939221493785057841954.jpg

    I wouldn't say rubbish because when they're pegged on they're solid. It's just a bit frustrating getting them to that point.

    That's because you haven't pegged the side piece is properly. I can pick mine up by the shoulders without anything undoing.

    Would anyone be willing to split the cost on the accessories pack with me? All I want are the faces and Megatron's remote.

    Sorry I should have clarified. A board member has been in contact directly with the TCP about the trailer. TCP's response to that member was they expect the trailer in late Feb. He's posted about the exchange with TCP multiple times.

    I was actually thinking of doing this the other day... I see a paint brush there - did you apply the chrome using that or did you apply directly using the pen?

    There’s nothing that locks these teeth into the slots

    They're only supposed to slot in but not lock in, as they need to separate again when using the ab crunch. The tabs that lock the waist in are these ones, they just need a lot of strength to clip in properly:

    I used the pen initially then the paint brush to patch up gaps I saw. wasn't the most ideal option as I won't get the most smooth paint job. I'm not sure whether to apply some sand paper to smooth out the finish though as I don't want to strip away too much of the paint

    @WyldeBill now what do you think after trying it the way @Chris C137 mentioned??

    In any case @pezley is working on something that may help.

    for an crunch it releases. To be honest, I would gladly give up an ab crunch to have it lock in.

    I think that's just the transformation joint being used as an ab crunch. A VERY fragile one that is.

    (Not really an ab crunch per se)

    No, I do think it was intentional, or there'd be no reason to have that clutch joint lock in at the midpoints.

    Before I got the toy in-hand, I was wondering how they managed to maintain that pose. But it makes a lot more sense now, knowing that that joint isn't a free-moving ratchet.
