  1. Thanks. I'm not sure about Superglue because the feet still need to move. I was kinda hoping for a magic 'it won't break, make the screw tighter' response :) maybe I'll have to live with ol floppy feet Optimus! That's why after applying it, you keep the joint moving a bit then let it rest for a few seconds and repeat. If both parts of what needs tightening are plastic and make contact (like a ball joint) Future should work fine. Apply, work it a bit, then let it sit for a day.
  2. Try either Future floor finish or super glue. It'd work best on whatever it is that the foot pivots on. Not having the figure in hand at this time, I can't say for sure what the best solution might be, but these methods tend to work great when something's too loose.
  3. FoC Shockwave - A good figure, and seems to fit in with Generations Cybertronian Megatron and Soundwave decently enough. Certainly could have used more color though, but we're probably just gonna have to get used to it... Arms Micron Vehicon - The micron port in the rear looks like a jet thruster. That alone is awesome. Not much different than the Jet Vehicons, aside from most of the vehicle shell parts and robot mode colors. Would have been really nice if they had provided stickers for the rear window, though. Arms Micron Weapons - Jida R is a red version of the Jida cheetah chainsaw that came with AM-08 Terrorcon Cliffjumper. Actually works very nicely with First Edition Cliffjumper. Gabu is a horseshoe crab that becomes a crossbow. Be sure to snap the blade parts on more or less from crab mode position, or they may break. Baru is a bird that's also a big meat cleaver blade. The feet are a pain to flip out for bird mode, and the handle sticks off awkwardly on one wing. Dai is a crocodile and a multi-barreled cannon. Not much to him. Together, they make the Dark Matter Calibur, a huge sword. Perfect Effect SFX - Tiny, but loaded with awesomeness and weapons. Not at all recommended if you can't stand partsforming in modern figures.
  4. If they are, it likely won't be in this year. If people weren't so hot to buy him at the original price, the adjusted, higher price of the second run's preorders might have contributed in there apparently not being enough of them to do it. But generally, if it's not from Fansproject then a given third party product is likely to linger around awhile. Especially with the ones that hit triple digit price tags.
  5. Knight Morpher Cyclops is very cool. Take your time with transforming him, and maybe watch Vange1us' transformation video for him, as he is very intimidating the first time or so. Thing is though, there haven't been enough preorders to do a second release apparently, and the factories are gonna be busy with the airborne squadron trio along with maybe one or two other things for the rest of the year. So if you're looking into getting Cyclops, it may be best to get one now from wherever they're still in stock. MMC has good and prompt customer service should there be any issues. I can't say anything for iGear Weapon or Medical Specialists, but it seems that a mod is needed to allow the front wheel well panels to actually fold in as intended. Both look nice though, just not quite $120 nice.
  6. I'd say the same thing, but with Breakdown. And now I plan to get the Arms Micron Weapons, though it would be nice if a version of Noji (the boar Vehicon blaster) was among them. Ah well, I'll grab me one Arms Micron Vehicon, curse a little at the robot mode stickers as they're gonna be the same as Jet Vehicon's but in royal blue/dark purple. As for the head, I don't know of any that would make a decent Autotrooper head. Get on it, Dr. Wu/somebody! :tflaugh
  7. Arms Micron Jet Vehicon - I do not have the grounded version just yet, (plan to get one Arms Micron version with a bunch of the Arms Micron Weapons such as the Dark Matter Caliber guys) but DAMN. THIS is a general mold worth army building, even if it's just one Jet Vehicon and one Vehicon. Much is clearly different, but operates the same way. The stickers were a bit tricky in placing for the robot mdoe due to where they're being asked to be placed. I do wish that the clear plastic chest panel could be removed so that the Decepticon symbol sticker could be placed under it, but sadly it's glued in place. Igu was fun to build, though the sticker that wraps around the muzzle's tip is kind of annoying. Perfect Effect Motobot RC - WOW. I like this thing. Amount of weaponry: only topped by Munitioner and Mad Blender. But the articulation...I don't think anything really tops it in sheer number, and the few things that do have a good number of those in the fingers. The included comic and instructions are filled with wonderful, wonderful Engrish! But I would love to see Perfect Effect make that Black Arachnia-like character in the comic as an actual figure. That would be a lot cooler than the POS that is Prime Airachnid...
  8. Perfect Effect PE DX-01 Motobot RC (pink version) Arms Micron Jet Vehicon x2
  9. Arms Micron Breakdown - Brings 'sexy' back to the Voyagers. Assembling the Mini-Con was fun, if a little scary at times due to how much force is required to attach the legs, head, and tail/handle. Stickers are fairly easy to apply, although the instructions could make it a little more clear as to what order the inner/outer knee stickers go in. (despite that, I don't think it's all that noticeable if done one way or the other) The rear is a pain in the rear to get into place for vehicle mode, but refuses to budge easily once it's in. Robot mode is as big and bulky as the character should be. Quite poseable and well balanced despite the bulk. The Mini-Con in hammer mode can be held in his hand or the wrist/windshield assembly can be turned back around to plug into the roof for more show accuracy. Since the hands are translucent plastic, I'd advise a bit of caution with 'em. Overall, I'm quite happy with this toy, and recommend that people go get it now while they still can!
  10. Yeah. Hasbro was lazy.* *typical response for why something is the way it is with a Transformer, usually negative. :P
  11. Why Starscream should never be left with any Arcee...
  12. Another crappy desk top pic! This was kinda frustrating to set up for the pic. Mostly in trying to keep both of them balanced without knocking the other one over while I'm at it.
  13. FE Voyager Optimus. Similar to the Entertainment Pack Optimus in many ways, including in the way the shoulders are attached. Somehow though, it's less noticeable here than on the Deluxe. While not as nicely painted as it either, I think the Voyager comes off cleaner. THIS is the Optimus to get from the Prime series. The sword is probably best left off to the side, however.
