@  Bass X0 : (27 September 2016 - 04:21 PM)

Does anybody remember the cartoon Bots Master? I enjoyed the show but looking back on it, most of the robot designs were lame. The only cool designs were Jungle Fiver and Ninjzz although the toys were nothing compared to Transformers of course. I thought the main human characters were decent enough for a show about robots. 

@  Verity Carlo : (27 September 2016 - 02:43 PM)

Social media is the worst thing to happen to fandom, you can now see people whose work you like being jerks or shills on a daily basis, which is worse than a bad interview or two.

Also, I guess he hates IDW Soundwave for not being an emotionless brick like the cartoon version? Man. Any enjoyment of Animated in future is going to be tainted for me by the fact that DJW is the worst kind of boring Geewunner.

@  Broadside : (27 September 2016 - 07:04 AM)

He also hates Action Man for no apparent reason other than "I don't know who this is and I don't care to find out". Which isn't fair, because Ian is the best character in IDW.

Sipher made a sarcastic remark about Sakamoto's skeeviness. Derrick called him an a**hole, and insulted his art, which was a low, unnecessary blow.

You wouldn't believe it but I bought a Sonicron at a really good discounted price and all his joints were tight and he stood up really well ;p :lol:

Nah he was just as I expected; loose hips and all. But I do really like this design and felt bad for the poor little guy so I did what I was joking about and made him a crutch. Yup a crutch and you know what it really helps :lol:

So I now give to you Tiny Wave:




Then my wife who thought the idea was hilarious gave me this Idea

As Tiny Wave says "Primus Bless us everyone"

I honestly expected this to be about an actual third-party (fourth-party?) upgrade for Sonicron that gave him a bunch of add-on missile boxes for no good reason or something.

Nah this is an upgrade that he really needs.

I did hear about the black version of him and supposedly all the quality issues are resolved.

I just fixed the loose hips on my Sonicron. I pulled him off the shelf to apply a faction sticker to his chest, and when I went to put him back he wouldn't stand properly without having to tip his torso back slightly. Otherwise his torso would fall forward. So I pulled apart the hips and went to work.

It's pretty easy, really. Dissassemble each hip by just a single screw on the back of each. You'll have a front part that has the FF or Rewind triangle on it, there's a half circle for the hip joint to channel through this part. The back part is a completely flat piece.

I applied a thin coating of super glue(don't have any nail polish) to the inside of the half-circle because that's where the friction is needed, let it harden, then put the hips back together. Viola! Also did something similar to the upper right arm swivel which was also much too loose.

I wish I could figure out what to do about the left leg when going to alt mode. I can never get the lateral part of the leg to collapse completely and hold, so there's always a slight gap when viewing that section from above. I know what part is the culprit, but I can't figure out what part of it I need to shave or add to.

In the alt mode I know what you mean my legs don't collapse flush either but close enough. My biggest issue was the left arm and leg slots needed some trimminging. but after that it went together nicely and I really cant stop playing with him. I wanna make his crutch collapsable so maybe it will fit in his chest icon-fire.gif
If I get brave enough I may take his legs apart but till then I am very happing with him

Thanks for the tips

Personally, I would recommend an outline symbol from Reprolabels. True, the downside is that you need to buy $20 worth of stuff, in order to get them, but it looked the best of the stickers I've tried.

Admittedly, I thought this was going to be a post about Tremor & Frequency. Since both are out now.

Just by off hand chance, you know about that the heels have to be rotated inward, in the transformation? As I recall, that part isn't in the included instructions (too lazy to go looking), but until I figured this out, I had the same problem.

(Just had time to check instructions, confirmed that heel rotation isn't depicted.)

I had to trim the left arm pegs a bit so they'd slide properly into the slots on the torso when going to alt mode too.

There's no screws holding the lateral leg panels in place. They pop off pretty easy, just don't force it. If you remove the speakers on the legs, you'll see the two slats(?) that are holding the lateral leg panel on. One's towards the front of the leg, the other towards the back. The problem slat(on mine at least) is the one towards the front of the leg. It's an interesting system they have, which I assume only works when the part is perfectly molded, which on my left leg it clearly is not.

And I'll doubly recommend Kevin S's outline symbol suggestion. icon-ironhide.gif Although being that the inside of the tape deck is silver, I'm having trouble taking a good pic that really shows it off.

It's not the heels. The heels are part of what helps the leg panels pop out and lock in place making for the fuller leg in bot mode. My problem is when going to alt mode. Like I said, I know the exact piece that's the problem The right leg has no problem. It's just that one slat and notch system on the left front leg.

Yeah, looks great in person, but refuses to appear in photos.

Thus far, this is the best photo I've managed & it doesn't convey what the thing looks like in person. Maybe I just need a better camera.

I took the legs apart last night and trimmed the square cage that has the the locking tabs. When I put him back together everything lined up so much better and when in alt mode the gap is gone. You don't have to take much off just a little.
