They would still find a way to mess it up with breaking or loose hinges or whatnot.

Got Hardhead yesterday. Much better tolerances but the paint is a mess. Quite a few splurks on the beige painted bits.

My Hardhead is perfect. Blurr too. Blaster also. All solid and PERFECT figures.

Only Skullsmasher have a rampant factory error or design flaw. A shame, really.

Got "twinferno" yesterday, had to overpay a little and get it online because, pffft Hasbro distribution, but that's another complaint.


In robot mode, it's pretty nice, but, try and transform it and it's crappy nature shows true. First the shoulders are tabbed in too tight and do not want to flip around for alt mode. Then his necks really don't want to tab into the place their supposed to, but this is all minor compared to the lower body.

The legs work fine as legs, but not at all as a tail. Crappy plastic, nothing wants to stay tabbed, particularly the tip of the tail which literally pops back apart the second you stop holding it together. Then there are the gray hip parts which are supposedly to tab into the torso but the tabs aren't anywhere near long enough to reach the slots. And to top it all off, the thing doesn't want to stand up at all.

Robot mode is great, the headmaster is great (other than needing a little more paint, a common complaint on most headmasters) and a cool homage to the lion Battle Beast, but dragon mode just sucks.

The tail is definitely an issue, but the hips do in fact tab in. It is a bit tricky to get the tabs at the correct angle, but it does work. On mine, it also made the tail tip stay together a little better. I'll see if I can get you a photo later.

That is my biggest gripe with it. You are forced to have the feet angled as triangles, like bird feet, to balance him in a decent erect pose.
This figure could have really benefited from just a bit more thinking through.

Aww gawd! He's like shelf warming in my region.
Buy Official Hb/TakaraTitancityformers at retail price or else the 3rd party makers win!

"Shelfwarming"
Btw, its been nearly a year now and TR Soundwave and Blaster aren't moving in the shelve of TRU, is that shelfwarming or what?

Found it at my Walmart. They had it like, 3 times. I skipped it because I found it derpy and ugly, like Mindwipe. Glad that I did.

Have you been getting the hips tabbed in correctly? Mine was just as you described until I figured out the hips. I tried to get a close up or 2. I found that you need to tab in the hips before you squeeze the legs and tail together and it hold up pretty well. The trickiest part of the hips is getting the legs at the right angle to line up the tab and hole.

Once I figured out tabbing it, the tail held together better and the balance was better too.

Here is the angle of the legs before you tab the hips in.

And here it is tabbed in.

See if that helps.
