    I know I am in the minority, but I would like to have a separate combiner skeleton, that doesn't turn into the trailer, just to have a seamless trailer. It would be something different from FT and DX9. But looking at the last prototype I think it will be similar to DX9...

    I got confused with the names! I meant Gravestone. My bad.

    DX9's Capone isn't too bad for what it is, but I don’t like how the hip skirts work.

    Have the "new" Gravestone been shown yet? I prefer to reserve judgment until then.

    Got my replacement shoulders from XTB. Three things I noticed:

    1. One of my new shoulders came PRE-CRACKED in exactly the same way as the old shoulder (see pic). Um, thanks?

    2. One of the shoulders was RE-MOLDED to allow the wheels to rotate down without difficulty. The other shoulder was the same as before, and I had to shave away some plastic to allow the wheels to rotate down. That's strange...

    3. They sent me SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT SCREWS than the original screws (see pic). The original screws had a tapered head. I imagine this would have allowed the screws to dig into the plastic a bit, which may have contributed to the cracking problem...? The new screws are not tapered. So... maybe problem solved?


    *EDIT:* Aaaaand while installing the shoulders, the new piece broke at the bicep swivel mushroom peg. I'm a fan of XTB, but this is not their finest hour.

    Man, that set does look great in G2 colors. I bought the G2 Crackup, and now I’m really debating getting the rest of this set. Thanks!

    Haha I hear you! But Dx9 is by definition better because X-Transbots is late and don’t have anymore for comparison....I feel the pain as I was in four bots deep and I’m switching sides... Dx9 Menasor is gorgeous bad news for X-Transbots

    And to confirm, put him in robot mode out of the box, then onto a shelf. Nothing more.

    What do you guys reckon - for replacements should I ask Baba, who I got it off, or XTB directly?

    I'm thinking of buying Overheat. Maybe I shouldn't. I don't feel lucky at all. :D

    Hs anyone's cracked overheat shoulders actually broken apart yet, or have they just remained these hairline fractures?

    What was the original pre order price for crackdown and flip out? Were the 2nd pair more expensive right away?

    I _should_ get my replacement shoulders tomorrow. So if I decide to go through with the surgery, I will post the outcome. That said, I'm fairly certain the only thing holding his current cracked shoulders together are the screws.
