by the way i have noticed over time that the click ratchet jointed combiner socket ports in my munitioner and the shoulder blox/missle pods add on parts was gradually loosing the ability to hold a pose due to the ratchet piece the joint clicks against inside the shoulderblox/issile pods and munitioners backpack ggrinding down due to friction over time
has it happened to your set yet?
so far i have had to cannabalize the core body torso block from each of my fansproject enhanced superion maximus stealth fighter jet limb figures to use as a set of bases to cobble together a set of combiner port shoulder blox stand in parts s for big bruticus
take a good look ath te missile pods for vortex
see that front wall panel with the missile rounds molded into it?
i had to salvage that part from each of hte original missile pods + the top wall of each missile pod with flaps also
as for the two classics superion stealth fighter jet limb figures
i had to completely remove the arms legs lower body chest and back pack parts with a dermil to make the jetbot body have a basic blox shape
with the missile pods front wall being moutned into place where the jetbot body bloxs head used to be and the top wall with flaps salvaged from the original missile pods with flaps beiung set up on top of the jetbot body blox
it aint pretty in the least but the new ratchet jointed combiner ports work liek a charm fro big bruticus new shoulder blox/,missile pods
to be honest it gives my bruticus a bit of a battle damaged makeshift repair on the spot sort of look
as soon as i get my ands on all 6 figures to tfclubs project hercules that will be my new holy grail
