    Nice! I felt the same, and mainly caused by myself. I kept trying to flip the wheels through the chest and lock things down while holding the chest plate down in its position and it was the most frustrating part with everything loose flipping around. From that point on it all felt ok.

    So it's been a few months now and ShowZ sent me a box which was supposed to contain replacement parts to fix my Gravestone Trailer. However, it only came w/ 1 of the 2 things needed. I got the wheel cover replacement, but I did not receive the more important item... Whatever is needed to attach the waist of my Monolith :(

    Tried messaging ShowZ on Facebook and he told me to email [email protected] about it. Now I gotta wait some more. I wish I never ordered this thing.

    $100 says there a small screw in the waist assemble that fell out of the hex post. Like how the knee joint is assembled. Just a guess

    That's what I'm thinking too. If that piece was missing from the start I think it would have immediately fallen apart having first starting to open things to begin the transformation. If it was holding so far into it and then came apart, I bet the piece came loose and is stuck in there. The central waist area needs to come apart to fix it so I would suggest open it up and see if the pin is sitting there.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I will check out the waist and see if I can take it apart. Hope it's not too complicated.

    Same for me. $160 was a reasonable price considering it forms the whole combiner body but wouldn't have paid more. This was the most annoying transformation I've done in a long time but somehow I managed to get to bot mode in around 90 minutes. Some elements are straight forward but the mess of a chest is just insane. Luckily I've been following long enough to know the trouble spots and didn't break anything.
    I'm wondering if XTB plan on lowering this trailer and sticking a fire engine grill on the front for hotspot?

    Maybe we'll see some similarities but it should be very different because Defensor is a combiner using the 4 small vehicles as the limbs rather than on them. Eliminating the arms and legs from knee down would be half the trailer. So if they want to stay true to the source material they'd better start from scratch on new parts.

    This figure was a breaking point for me.

    I'm selling the trailer, if I can get it changed back to trailer. Nothing's broken yet.

    In fact, if someone makes a decent offer, I've got the whole team for sale. Nothing's broken that I know of, but I never tested the electronics, and never understood what the problem with Overheat's shoulders were.

    No inquiries about my Stunticons.

    If I had posted a few months ago, I suspect there would be interest. As is, most people who want the"'toon" set probably have it.

    Well the other thing is you just posted it in the XTB thread, most people following this thread will have part or all of their XTB Menasor no matter which style it is. Add to that you didn't specify your location on an international forum & didn't list price. Finally you have your profile limiting other members from seeing what you've posted & where. I had to copy/paste your username into the search menu just to see if you showed up in the FS subforum, and apparently you haven't.

    Don't wanna be mean but please put up a proper FS ad before complaining that you haven't had a sale within just a few hours???

    Not complaining.

    Just thought I'd send out a "soft" feeler. It's worked several times before.

    No complaints, reall: I understand all of your points and I figured that, again, most people that want the set (the people in this thread) have most to nearly all of this set.

    I only explained my quote to someone who (seemingly) wanted clarification on it.

    Peace.

    My shelf is ready!! Looks great!

    I really wish they had a stronger plastic formula so their stuff wasn't prone to breakage. They make some really nice looking figures and it's a shame if the buyer can't enjoy them the way they want to out of fear they might fall apart in their hands.

    Hmm, the one hand, that head looks best on him compared to the other youth versions.

    On the other, seems the actual G1 toy has a kinda neat grill/faceplate design.
