I can confirm having both those issues on the one I had and sold a while ago. They are also present on the Nemesis Prime version but not as bad as on OP.

Thanks. Kind of sad this is the case. Outside of that, I’m having a blast with it.

It is a really fun mold, the panel-forming for the legs and arms is really satisfying as well as the click you mentioned when you slide in the balled up Pax.

Yup. a lot of fun.

If I were to grade them, I think Rodimus is still the best overall.
Then this guy, and then Optimal Optimus in last, even though the robot and monkey meds are really good and I love it. The integration of small Primal is just non-existant. You can totally knock out the pin holding Primal to the front of the skateboard and have him stand on his own without affecting the beast or robot modes at all.

I may just do that.

All in all, all 3 are pretty fun figures to mess with.

I have been struck with an idea! :idea:

Since I missed out on most of the POTP Dinobots, I have been strongly considering getting the Takara Selects release of Volcanicus. However, I did still manage to acquire two of the POTP ones, these being Sludge and Swoop. Putting Sludge aside for now, I just hit upon an idea that will enable me to use Swoop as a different character while the Takara Selects toy gets to be the real Swoop.

Image

I also managed to get Selects Red Swoop, but I have a plan for him as well.


Selects Red Swoop

Image

Selects Red Swoop is Marvel Swoop, who later becomes known as "The Veteran" by the Beast Era.

Image

He forms an arm of the Inferno combiner, whose name I'm stealing a fellow fan to name him Safeguard.


Takara Selects Swoop

Image

Takara Selects Swoop is Cartoon Swoop, dumb cave-speak and all.

Image

He forms an arm of Volcanicus.


POTP Swoop

Image

POTP Swoop, with his blue torso, dark helmet, red fin, black shoulders, and silver chest stripes is... Armada Ravenus!

Image

He can function on his own as a standalone piece, or form a limb for another combiner should I come up with the need for one.

If we're counting Swoop alone, Sabrblade covered them all: PotP (blue), Hasbro Selects (red), and TakaraTomy Volcanicus Selects (cartoon).
The resident Rewind... well, half of one :lol:

- Jelze Bunnycat =:3

Looking for:
- TR Furos (Hardhead's head) and Crashbash (lost him :()
- PotP Punch head
- TR Galvatron right arm (the gun one)
- CW Stunticon limbs (Drag Strip, Dead End, Breakdown, Brake-Neck, Offroad or TFCC Grabuge) + Blackjack
- TR Twinferno & Grotusque
- Greenlight, Lancer and PotP Elita-1 (plus repro Victorion hands and feet?)

Ok, so I caved and will be getting both Selects Volcanicus and Abominus. While I wont count them as seperate characters from the PotP versions, I'd be interested to know if there is any way to justify them as such

For instance, in my head canon there are actually 3 different Scattershots. The CW single release is part of Modulus. The Hasbro CW Computron is what I call Betatron, and finally the UW version is the proper and true Computron.
I enjoy asking questions, and always have. Please take no personal offense when I do. It's not about justification, is about acquiring knowledge.

Bucket/Want List:
1. Micromaster Combiner Sixwing (1992 Takara)
2. Botcon 2016 Customization Class Ratchet (G2 Deco)
3. Botcon 2016 Customization Class Ratchet (Marvel Comics Deco)
4. Botcon 2016 Flash Sentry

The Prime Predacon Terrorcons were repurposed for G1, so one could go the other direction for the PotP ones. As for Volcanicus... I know Energon had Mega-Dinobot, maybe work from there? :-?
