    Thanks! Wanted to do something different and I figured he was a chaotic enough character to hang with Unicron.

    Ooh, he'd fit right in too. I don't own any figures of Taz, though, and really I'd say his capacity for destruction pales in comparison to Stitch and Unicron.

    I hemmed and hawed on whether to buy him for a long time before I finally sprang for him. Back then $50 for a toy his size seemed like a lot to ask. Nowadays, I'm blowing that on pretty much ever new Legends release, so I guess times have changed. It helps, though, that my MP collecting has slowed way down, which has freed up a lot of money. When I bought Stitch, that meant putting off one of my MP purchases. If you can find a Revoltech Stitch, though, I highly recommend him - he's been a lot of fun. But then I've always been a sucker for Stitch which is why I put him in my avatar (currently thinking of updating it with this pic).

    Bring them together first. All ring connections and then over Unicron. The ring is flexible enough to go over the sphere and peg in.

    This is why I can't take Bobby's opinions seriously.

    Oh so we going Twitter here now? I’m guessing it’s ok to be digging up old posts now :p .


    Seriously, mines on slow boat. What’s the point of you suddenly bringing this up months later tho? Validation?

    So what bit makes you feel that way?
    I'm a little disappointed you need pin punch to change panels out, only pin punch I managed to find broke without moving any pins

    One is a terrifying planet-devouring force of infinite destructive power... and the other is Unicron.

    That is not the first time he made a figure look bad or limited just because he can't do a previous research or transform a figure properly.

    If it wasn't for the other content of his channel I would have already unsubscribed from his channel a long time ago.

    Oh yeah he does that alot, half assed a transformation then blames the figure. I mean that Unicron was on loan to him and he broke it twice.

    Nope, same problem as the Hasbro one the price tag was to high. My point still stands Zeta didn’t want to release it under their brand so they made up a new brand to release it under to keep away from future issues.

    Some pics with MFT's trio of bad guys. Some were asking in the legends thread how they compared.

    Okay. So attempted planet mode last night. Oof. I wasn't expecting a fun transformation and it wasn't, though I can see after a few tries it could get simpler.
    I almost dropped it once. And the spikes took the brunt of the clumsiness, but I didn't lose any. Basically, to me, that was TW Coolsville but the size of a volleyball.
    A couple of his side knee plates won't tab in at all in planet mode. The wedge tabs with the indent. Frustrating. And I may not have the arms aligned properly.

    That said, if I can get those tabs to go, and the arms correct in planet mode, then everything else went together well.

    Oh, and my planet tusks are warped.

    Again with this? We finally got done with all the bsf talk. Seriously, he's just another reviewer: he does not deserve this kind of attention and thread-jacking.

    Ha! My bro-in-law said almost the exact same thing when I showed him the pic :cool: 

    Oof. How much did it end up being?

    Run the planet tusks under hot water and they'll straighten out. I took out the screws so I was only doing the small parts that were actually warped but you can easily pop out the whole tusk.
