Smokescreen RID mold question...

Postby gbm » Thu Dec 06, 2012 8:31 pm

What are the two enormous pegs sticking out of the back of the car?

Which mold are you talking about?

The Deluxe repaint of RID Knockout?

Or the Legion Class Smokescreen figure?

The knockout mold doesn't have pegs, those are his tires.

And legion class Smokescreen, I don't think we've seen his back yet.

omg, my bad, I was super non-descript when I posted that...

I was referring to the Arms-Micron Smokescreen (molded after KnockOut). On the sides of his feet, which are also the back of the car, he has these enormous posts sticking out on both sides.

Ahh, those. Looks like just Micron pegs. So you can hook up more microns or weapons that have holes onto the car.

I don't think they have a special purpose other than marring an otherwise sleek mold. :P

RACast, I've never owned a AM figure, I was unaware.

In general I think the Arms Microns are pretty cool, but those pegs are just too big. They ruin the look of the car. At least the holes don't ruin the car's profile, but those big pegs sticking out look horrible.
