    Thanks for making that video with that tip onthe flap. Even after seeing your tip on that I was hesitant but with the right mix of finesse and technique it works fairly well.

    I did file down the shoulder a tiny bit with a A file though but with the amount I took off bit sure it made a difference. Looking at the way it's designed and molded and the way it feels getting over the hump ...i think they meant to do it that way so it has a solid feel and it stays transformed even if that joint loosens over time They didn't anticipate the plastic would break though. maybe a bit more interference than they were going for. Still haven't taken death wish out of box yet but hoping I have luck with the paint on that one

    Since I hadn't seen anyone take pics of the two yet:

    "Who you callin' yellow?!!"

    I'm amused how for three guys who are supposed to be yellow colored, they're not even close to the same shade of yellow. You got yellow mustard/spicy brown mustard Dragstrip, Lemon fresh Wildrider, and I don't even know what kinda yellow Sunstreaker is supposed to be.

    And I was simply passing on what I believe dalianjj and ibot's preferences are on the subject. I'm not trying to be combative or tell you to change what you're doing...but I was throwing out there what I believe those two have stated before. Why? I guess to be helpful to those two guys, who are typically so helpful to us...and maybe even to avoid ruining a good thing. If they get over-inundated with requests, maybe that quits being such an effective option. But really, it's none of my business nor does it have any real impact on me what people choose to do. Peace, hugs, and high fives, my dude.

    Overheat is great. No paint chips, feels sturdy & I love the toon paint job. Second face was better than the one installed IMO. The plastic part under the front spoiler section falls out, so I have to glue that.

    Transformation seems fine, but you just have to put pressure at the right places. Probably the most annoying part was breaking apart the legs and the one dreaded flap that a lot of people had issues with. My points are:

    * When separating the legs, I used a plastic prying tool and twisted it to push up the panel to pop out the tab that separate the legs
    * As I'm straighting out the forearms, I'm also sliding the side forearm panel down so the tab connects easier
    * I greased the flat yellow portion where the shoulder tires rotate over. I put pressure on the base of the yellow bar that's holding the wheels with enough pressure and they flipped over pretty easy

    So I reached out to xtb support again cuz a few people have gotten parts shipped and she asked to see a photo of the break, even though this was a reply to an email thread where I'd already done that. So I did and reiterated that removing pins was not going to be an acceptable solution and she told me that the parts are still being collected. Not sure why others are getting theirs and I'm still waiting. Maybe because what others are getting is just the broken part and I'm insisting on everything connected by pins? At this point, I'm considering reaching out to my retailer and seeing about just exchanging the whole figure.

    Hopefully your retailer is easier to deal with than XTB customer service.

    Whilst charging $5 for shipping, most people have never found anything but great service from them. What problems have you had ?

    It's in this thread somewhere but easier to just go to YouTube and search for "tman chill review overheat". He doesn't elaborate on the shoulder issue,just comments is tough it scary but he does show exactly how to do the buttflap/spoiler

    Awesome pic! Nice group of bots there. Do you have the Model 001 light up head kit on Megatron? His eyes look real shinny and cool.
