Just got mine, but one of the handle bars was bent out of shape. Any tips to fix this without water because the part is non removable and near metal.

I really enjoyed a lot of this subscription set. These last two are nice additions as well, Krok being a highlight of the set, but Nightracer... First released female transformer (even though it was a show exclusive), is awesome! Another micromaster is always welcome, but not sure who Shakar would homage, if anyone, ground shaker is the closest I can think of, but both the American and Japanese versions were
Autobots.

Can't wait to get mine in the mail.

I just wanted to give a special credit and thanks to Raksha for returning to write the new bio for the mystery figure. I hope fans like it (the bio and the toy)!

I'm just glad our long national nightmare of every car mold ever getting rumored to be repainted into Nightracer is over :lol:

I have no idea what the significance of the bio is, but it seems many folks are happy about it, so it's cool with me.

Krok looks nice (my poor wallet).

Nightracer looks okay. I'm disappointed they didn't go with Animated Arcee. Her earlier pics in the TFCC comics looked to be pointed that way.

Oy, not every new toy out there is a homage to an old one, my friend. ;)

The name itself is an anagram for "Raksha".

Only problem for me is Nightracer's targetmaster doesn't really fit with her bio. She's a sharpshooter with no guns D:

Yah, that's a bit odd. I wonder if there's a yellow gun that she can hold that's easy to obtain in the aftermarket. Seems silly not to have her with a gun. Love the mold choice for her, just bummed that something more clever wasn't done to replace the Mini-Con/Micromaster partner or to give her an additional gun from another mold. I keep hoping this will be addressed by Hasbro or something where they can start making extra guns, kind of like they've done with the weapons from the Construct-Bots being given to regular main-line Transformers figures.

I didn't think the targetmasters were gangmolded with the bots either, since the plastic colors are generally completely different.

Okay, I'm not the only one who was ecstatic to get an improved official Wipe Out to replace the nice Takara one with the lousy Windcharger face until I looked at the name on her bio, am I?

But I have two of him already (counting the custom dye-job I made from a yellowed G1 Tailgate 10 years ago), so getting an overdue take on a character whose original toy I'll probably never own is way better; just confused for a few minutes.

I'm guessing we'll have to wait for a Shapeways tommy-gun if anything, but for those of us wishing to make do with what we got, I found a decent gun mode for Shakar already: just point the peg out to serve as the barrel, then point the treads down to stabilize him on her outstretched arm. It looks way clunkier than any of the myriad gun modes I got out of last year's Catgut, but still convinces you that Nightracer's capable of capping Ultra Mammoth and BW Megs from across the room with her dozer-zooka.

(Sorry I can't post a pic; digital camera's still misplaced)

Oh, and am I the only one who thinks Gatoraider's weapon mode looks like a Ghostbuster trap in those colors?

I gotta wonder a bit: is this intended to be the "Original" Nightracer, (replacing 'accidentally nightbird') or a proper upgrade of the clone.

I'm thinking it's the clone, but I can't say for sure.

Whichever one she is, she was present at the signing of the Pax Cybertronia in this body.
