    I wish I had the space for an FDM printer. I could easily make a set like that. Prints from my resin printer just wouldn’t be strong enough.

    The wrist is very loose on the Deadend wrist! Does anyone know how to tighten it as I can't find any screws to tighten? Cheers _DSC7971.jpg _DSC7972.jpg

    Never thought I'd be envious of picture of a figure simply standing in a normal position holding a sword with its arms out, but after the weekend I had with the G2 trailer, here we are. Mine won't even stand straight up like that without the legs sliding apart into the splits and making the whole contraption come apart.

    Those shins do wonders for the proportions and the sculpting is also a step up. I'd be all over the set if it was cast.

    That was maybe the biggest 200 dollar mistake I’ve ever made in MP collecting. I seriously hate that fucking thing. It’s the only transformers thing of any kind that I own that I flat out hate.

    My G1 version is pretty solid and looks great as Menasor (kind of wish I had the Toy set instead of toon but no point in changing it out now... although I would like the toy chest car piece, always loved that thing on Menasor).

    Admittedly, the transformation is quite involved. I know it’s pretty intense and rather floppy until you can get it properly secured but he does make for an imposing Menasor when all is said and done.

    Sorry to hear you guys are having trouble with yours. He’s a bit of a monster so if your copies have weak hips, he’s not going to stay standing for long, which sucks.

    Mine’s good as well. The parts I don’t fully trust are the swivel top of the shins just below the knees.

    I like seeing the team as a set, so they’re not currently combined. However, at some point, if possible, I’d like to double up on the limb bots (maybe DX9) so I can display them as a team and gestalt.

    Thanks. I admit, I’m 99% sure that maybe I just got a bad copy. But after watching videos and reading through here a little, I’m also starting to suspect that maybe the G2 trailers are the G1 trailers that didn’t pass QC, just repainted or something. And that XTB knew it wouldn’t be a popular enough seller to bother improving that aspect of it, which might also be why it includes the accessory pack that you have to pay all that extra money for with the G1 offering. Maybe I’m paranoid but I wouldn’t be shocked to learn that that’s the case.

    It makes me sad because I’ve been praising the G2 Stunticons in this thread for ages. I still love the individual bots but really wish this would have put a more beautiful bow on the package.

    The screw is in the palm side of the wrist you need to remove the sword and bend the hand back (like he’s saying stop) you’ll see a small hole the screws in there. Afterward you can turn the wrist in a clockwise motion(if looking at the front of monolith) to not loosen the screw if you turn counter clockwise even a bit the screw will loosen

    ugh, that's disappointing to hear, cause if I manage to miraculously get the lost G2 Crackup and Flipout from ToyDojo (Supposedly they found an extra G2 Crackup for me, just waiting for FedEx to admit they screwed up and lost my stuff) I was looking forward to procuring the rest of the set and having a sweet Menasor. eh..Idk now

    anyone else who went the G2 route share this sentiment?

    I do hope this aspect didn't get lost in what you read: I think the individual G2 Stunticons are straight bangers, they're my favorite Stunticon set. But the trailer is the big problem. Now, what I didn't know at the time when I started buying these guys, is that DX9 also is (or was) putting out a G2 version of their set, but I have no idea how far along they are. Had I known that at the time, I may have gone with those, but I didn't find out until later. All that to say that the general consensus is that their combined Menasor is a much better product than this one, so maybe you could consider looking into that, like I would have, had I known.

    The consensus is that the G2 DX9 set is not getting finished since they are purportedly out of business. I have the 3 they did make (Dragstrip, Breakdown, and Wildrider).

    I’d have to really think about it before investing that much more into the set. Plus, since I have the toon and toy versions I’d have to do both for mental reasons. How quick was the turnaround after placing the order?
