    Out of curiosity, can arm-mode Blastoff be displayed without the combiner hand like some sort of arm cannon? Any pics is appreciated

    Absolutely you could. Just don't split the bottom out and clip the hand in. Haven't got chance to mess with it for pics, but because the hands are separate it's 100% doable

    I see, thank you. I thought it was similar to Iron Factory's where you can do it aswell. I know it's not accurate to anything but the idea of Blastoff's engines being cannons sounded pretty neat

    The peg is at the base of the hand. Just imagine it without the hand, and brown. Not sure 8f you'd get all three facing forward. The middle one pops up and back (and splits too). At least you get the idea!

    I think i see it yes. Seems like the lower part of his rear isn't covered by the thrusters though, might look a bit awkward, thank you anyways :D

    The middle one moves up & down, so with the hand off you can move it to the bottom of the rear part of the spaceship and it looks much better, just look for vehicle mode and you will see what i mean.

    That said, i think it will look a bit weird and out of proportion.

    I just started collecting this set (the original, not the Bruticon) I prefer the coloring and design on the original release. I just bought Blitzkreig from BBTS and Uproar from eBay. Both should arrive next week.

    Hey thanks! And yeah it doesn't look as good as i imagined. If it had more thrusters it would look better i think

    I love the picture on sirtoys of Blurr just standing there surrounded in flame all stiff and straight up. I bet he is just thinking "This is fine...." LMAO

    Sweet god that is easily the biggest freaking instruction manual I have EVER seen... Mine arrived around 1pm and it’s after 4 now having completely finished combining them. Onslaught is finicky a bit with the head ‘plate’ where it keeps popping up if I’m not careful, Vortex’s blades were a nightmare (didn’t opt for Brawl’s treads since they don’t show really), and Swindle’s knee joint combiner piece was supremely stiff... seriously that thing isn’t coming unfastened unless I *really* want it to.

    Now I need a nice large Decepticon logo since the white outline ones I have won’t show for diddly on him...

    I cannot pull Brawl’s right side chest piece apart no matter how much force I use. The left side pulls left and right easily. Has anyone else run into this problem and possibly found a solution???

    Anyone make a custom toon accurate chest piece in toon colors? I see there are a few offerings on the original color scheme, but nothing for toon. I wish I could do it myself, but I have no skills, and I love everything else about this figure except that chest piece. Need to replace it asap. :)
