Toon not wanted.
po’d at bbts.
has anyone 3dpd the cars? I think some did that with the dx9 version?
Not that ive seen so far. the indivudual stubticons ARE as big or a bigger draw tban combined mode on this set
My toy dead end just came in and I noticed a few things.
1: the waist joint/connection point was super loose until I tightened the screw.
2: the forward and back hip rotations are fine until I tighten the waist, after which they became EXTREMELY tight.
3: the foot and ankle joints are so loose that they can't hold the figure up.
Has anyone else here has these issues? If so, do you know how I could fix them on my copy?
Thanks in advance
I would be, especially if it helps balance the combined mode
I wish someone would tho. This set really needs some fillers/covers.
Thanks to everyone for their suggestions. My Menasor can finally stand:
All they really needed to send me was a missing screw to connect the waist and torso together. I still needed to take apart the waist to install it either way.
Unfortunately he's still not complete. My Dead End still needs a replacement shoulder (notice the missing driver side wheel and door). I also need to look up how to install Motormaster into the back.
Looks like the antenna is bent.
Yeah, it arrived like that. Not a big deal IMO. The other antenna is also slightly bent the opposite direction.
That bent antenna has turn Menasor into a legit meme!!!
I say don't try to stuff Motormaster into the combined form. Personally been afraid on snapping a part off if I manhandle things too rough. Menasor standing fine for the past 4 or 5 months on my shelf with no figure shoved in there. Plus Gravestone looks really good on the shelf by himself. You cannot see him once he is shoved into the back cavity unless you've got him facing the wrong way around on your shelf. And in that case all you really need is a filler piece on the back. Plus it helps keep any light shining through gaps (although I've not had much).
Is the youth trailer compatible with the toon colored bots in combined mode? I have all five members of the toon versions and the toon trailer but really like the way this toy version looks.
I as well.
How many would you need @jimmyh ?
Include faux wheels and stilt details.
also I totally call shotgun on one from first run!
it's different colors for the arms.
All XTB Stunticons are compatible with each other in order to form Menasor. Toy, Toon or G2 can be mixed and matched however you please to form Menasor. However the colours vary between the 3 sets so the Menasor frame from the Toon set, will not match the colours from the toy set, specifically with regards to the colouring on the arms.
I am thinking about that. I did that for my Magic Square menasor. You can see it in my avatar.
I may also upscale the car shells I made for MS to fit Monolith's legs. And then maybe some fillers to complete XTB's faux shells. Although I have to wait for the youth trailer for that. I ordered from TCP and I am not sure when they will be getting it. They probably have it coming by boat.
Well you can mark me down for a set right now because your toy set for MS is great.
do you have a thread for your menasor?
I also am in. I want the youth limbs but your excellent 3DP designs will leave me satisfied and happy.
Ok, I have the design in my head. Now I just have to pry it out.
It's going to require removing the two panels and the hitch arm.
I am debating on grabbing the addon set from TFsource since they have it on sale, so I can design pieces to fill in the spaces in those shells. It doesn't look like there is too much of it.
Do the shells attach to dragstrip and dead end? Or to they attach to monolith's arms?
Are those panels and the hitch all screwed or are they pinned? I've knocked out a few pins and it's totally worth it if the figure ends up more slender and less "stuff clips on top of stuff on top of stuff".
Only request I have...well 2.
1-Make the shells for the legs be able to go right side up
2-make the "toy" version leg shells where they clip around the leg so the whole lower leg looks like a car.
But you know. Whatever you do is cool. I'm just pipe dreaming.
