    I don't have a printer but have a few friends who do, mind if I get a copy for when I end up buying the trailer? (waiting for G2 Crackup to actually be in hand before I buy anything else since fedex lost the first one...lol)

    think it would work if printed in resin? or just pla?

    I just printed one with an fdm printer with a 0.25 nozzle, you should get something similar:

    Sure, send me a pm and I will give you the file. I think PLA or ABS is better than resin, but it is to be tested.

    All right, I'll ask the stupid noob question here since this seems to be all things Monolith...

    Where should I (pre)order the trailer from? MX12B? Seems like every site has it for pre-order but after BBTS screwed up Legacy Wildrider, I don't trust their "arrives Jan 2023."

    I have the bots, but finding a used trailer seems to be like finding a needle in a haystack, and I legit have no idea who is the most reputable dealer online. I'm in the US if it matters.

    Was able to get another head unit for my G2 trailer project (Thank you, X-Transbots).

    I just need a good color match for the purple parts in the trailer, so the head will match. Goes to check a couple color match apps.

    Looks like you skipped a step or two in your transformation.

    is it wrong that i may just want g2 gravestone, the trailer, and lambo? Sounds like the combiner is an absolute nightmare (though it does look fresh to death)

    May I ask how you went about procuring the toon head?

    I'd love to get a toy head and toy chest car for my toon Menasor.

    I inquired with X-Transbots customer service to see if they had the head available. Showed them a picture of what I needed, and they shipped it once they gave me a price.

    Cool, thanks!
    I just sent XTB an email inquiry. I don't expect to hear from them for a little bit considering the time of year for them but hopefully they'll respond when they're able to.

    To be honest it's not a fun transformation. But your milage will vary depending on your comfort to patience levels. The legs at the knees are probably the most problematic. So, if you take the plunge be delicate with the knee connection to lower legs.

    That helps from a weight distribution point. @jimmyh offers replacement back plates so you can skip Gravestone being involved. I have two of them and I can't recommend them enough.

    But the knees where they connect with the lower legs are the squirrelly part. It's held on by one tiny screw.

    Mine originally sheared off the first time converting it to combined mode. Barely touched it and the screw snapped off in the knee. Granted Xtransbots fixed me up with a replacement thigh with screws.

    But if you look at many of the pictures here and you'll see a small but noticeable gap. Its poorly designed. It should have been a form of mushroom riveted fastener to hold the two parts together while allowing rotation.

    Hi there, What is the correct way to change the legs to have the cars on the front? Do the feet need to be unscrewed and the the legs rotated? Just wanted to double check with someone who had already done it so I don't break anything. Cheers
