    Because I will be getting him eventually. Now I know that recent versions of him contain the face that was shipped with Overheat initially, I'm not fussed.
    However if @Mykltron already has Savant then it's a different thing, and it seems that by purchasing in that order you miss out.

    I wouldn't advocate saying it arrived damaged. You might be asked for evidence (Baba wanted pics of Overheat's shoulders before he'd request spares from XTB). Just explain that you ordered Savant, then Overheat expecting the spare face, and it turns out that you missed the boat - yet someone who missed both first runs doesn't. I reckon you're looking at a couple of dollars postage costs and nothing more

    So, do we have an estimate of how much the trailer will cost? Because I'm assuming it's going to be "A lot".

    Never assume anything in this game. That said we have no idea but Motormaster is less than some of us expected.

    He's crazily cheap considering the size, complexity and sparkly finish.

    Will the trailer transform as one single unit like DX9 to form Menasor's body?

    Looks like it. Also a battle station so it's essentially a triple changing trailer.

    So far they've all been "old MP" level prices so hopefully the trailer is in line with that. But yeah I'm bracing myself for higher given the size, triple changing, accessories etc.

    FT combiner parts should be about $70-80 if we consider that the limb that includes them is said to cost as much as Roadking. I'm expecting a similar price from Xtb.

    My guesstimate would be $100USD +/-.



    More or less. It doesn't look to be a solid single unit as DX9, with possibly more parts to assemble/connect/rearrange. DX9 looks to be the winner of the "solid stability award" for combined Menasor mode.

    Might not be to much cash, it's just plastic and hinges, guessing not much/zero paint and no diecast?
    Not loving dx9 menasor pics going around right now, those legs are way to boxy compared to the upper half.

    Hey XTB, when are you showing your MP Superion with the limbs that are able to rotate their waist left and right?:D

    20191214_183608.jpg 20191214_183629.jpg As owners of flipout know, head rotation is hindered in bot mode. However, if you don't push the backpack all the way in, you get full head rotation and there is enough friction to still keep the backpack secured. Obviously it isn't as tight a connection as before, but there is plenty of friction to keep the backpack where it is when posing and manipulating when positioned as shown in my images.
    You push it so that the pieces go as far before it clicks over if you were to push harder.
    I reckon this is a better solution that forcing the head past each time as that's gota add up the wear and tear over time.

    Not a single moment that it was at risk of coming undone when making this pose.

    Good solution. I've been happy with the head rotation so far without having to push past the windshield. Maybe I just don't put them in crazy enough poses...

    To North American collector, 2 packages' shipping is deem to be more expensive than one package's cost, maybe $20 to $30 more?
