    Thanks, that's awesome! I don't even have any of these toys yet, but I assume these would replace the all the really thin parts? Looking forward to getting/ seeing your finished Overheat. Let us know what paint you use as well.

    Looks like we're getting racing versions?

    looks like this
    Tyrrell P34: Legendary six-wheeler F.1
    its a TINY race car. its way out of scale with his other stunticons...oh well. who cares, ever knew it was this tiny.

    anyhow being that its the dragstrip mold again....Did yall fix your molding issues yet xtransbots? Sure we know its a "branch factory" but its clear to me that either the tooling has isues OR more likely whoever is running the mold isn't running it right when people on this board are breaking shoulders very easily and the replacements have air gaps due to the mold not filling properly.

    oh and since it was late last night when i posted. you can find a link to my replacement shoulders on shapeways in my sig. i get not money from this. its just something i thought would be of help to some here. got to get the left one up still though. oops. btw i've had this on my own for about 2 weeks now, survived 2 transformations so far. very limited testing but if you really need some shoulders these SHOULD work.

    link here too. DC_OH_R_SHOULDER by DCC77 on Shapeways

    Oh cool, a fourth version of Dragstrip for collectors to break!

    Deco looks nice, intentional typos notwithstanding.

    Well... that saved me some money. I'd bought a second Overheat a while back with the intention of getting it custom painted in Team Tyrrell livery... told XTB what I was planning as well. Guess I gave them a few ideas.

    Definitely in on this.

    Dig it if they make racing versions but I'm not going in on another Menasor...Original and the Youth Versions are enough for me. I still may get these for the alt mode version alone....so much stuff coming out in 2022.

    This is the deco I actually want. Hopefully it stays together in the shoulder department.

    It doesn't look like they are doing the other Stunticons. Dragstrip is being grouped in with a bunch of omnibot repaints. I wonder if XTB will even make them. They could just be throwing preorders against the wall to see if they stick. Plenty of renders over the years have never made it past the vaporware stage.

    I don't think that this means a new Menasor set.
    It looks like they are just making real life deco of famous racing cars. And I can see the appeal TBH.
    It's cheap for them, and can make some car enthusiasts happy.

    If they are doing racing and special versions, why aren't they doing this to their Breakdown?

    I also got black g2 replacements from XTB for my 2 toon dragstrips.
    They just arrived yesterday.
    I was able to get them to send me complete arms. 2 fulls sets of L&R arms with the die-cast piece that sits inside/over the torso.
    So each set is all connected as a whole assembly with both arms attached(I'll add a pic shortly)

    Idk if I wanna try and remove pins so I have the option to just completely swap everything out. Yes the arms will be black and not match but is better than no arms.

    Both my toon overheats have started cracking. I don't know if I plan to swap them out right away or wait until they actually break and fall off.

    But the black plastic seems better, at least from a visual perspective. Only time will tell.

    Ideally I just replace the actual shoulders but pulling pins worries me so idk..

    Prob not much help but g2 replacements are an option from XTB
