    Couple of things to do: Take an Xacto knife or similar and remove any flash between the shoulder tab and the hinge plane. Then gently file down the top of the tab. The tab's width serves as the friction joint for securing the shoulder piece, so you shouldn't need to attack the flats there. IMG_0667.JPG IMG_0668.JPG IMG_0669.JPG

    And if anyone's interested, you can replace Fly Fire's weak hip ratchets with Air Strike's...

    I’m fine with the look of the wings, I just wish they had more than those two tiny little clips to hold the side wings. They are always falling out,

    Yep, he’s amazing in person. I had two questions: when I put the batteries in either head, the lights flash but I just get a stuttering sound. Has anybody had this and figured out a fix? Second, a triangular shaped piece of clear plastic fell off Silver Arrow when I was transforming him. Kind of looks like an an undersized guitar pick. Think it came from the vicinity of the arm. For the life of me I can’t find anything missing. Anybody have any idea where that goes?

    Other people have had issues with the electronics. You'll probably have to pull the heads apart and check the wiring. Some people have just had loose connections between the batteries and the battery tabs though, so you might be able to gently bend the contacts in the battery compartments to fix your issue.

    I can't help you with Silverbolt because I don't have him yet. Sorry.

    Seeing a lot of people with their leg limbs backwards. You're welcome to do what you like but just a heads up Downthrust/Skydive (the gray one) is supposed to be the right leg.

    Would need to see a picture to be sure, but it sounds like it might be that smoky detail piece off his crotch plate.

    I don’t feel the need to justify but if not what the duck is the point of this website



    My Kronos and how I decided to love downthrust as the left leg:

    Google search showed me the typical cartoon animation inaccuracies.

    I don’t like all that white on one side.

    I think I will display my Superion with no arm wings, that way I can mount the canon to FireFlight for a semi toon look

    OK. I broke. I couldn't take it anymore. The pics, the talk...I ordered this dude from ShowZ. I think it's the best looking combiner to date and I can't freaking wait. I'd love to add Constructor as well but the current metallic version and the upcoming weathered version just don't do it for me. I guess Superion will have to battle OS Gravity Builder for now.

    Now i need to sell some stuff to justify my purchase. What a hobby...

    To be fair there was only 3 ounces left. Fortunately I had a back up. But Kronos is confused as to why bulleit costs more then buffalo trace. But buffalo trace is clearly superior

    Had to pick up Air Strike from ShowZ, no one has it here in the US, except maybe GCI. Until then my Superion looks like this :lol

    Ah I thought you meant Silver Arrow.
