    Dr.Crank - one of the better figures so far, quality control seems really good on this figure with everything feeling solid and durable. Paint apps are decent with only one or two not lining up perfectly. Robot mode looks very good although for me the back looks a tad cluttered, but articulation is great and the figure can hold poses very well. Vehicle mode is really fun and the crane is massive to say the least. Haven't wired the crane up yet but will be doing that soon. Combined mode connects very solidly and looks.....well, Awesome!

    Only flaw i have noticed is HL's cab doesnt connect very well but not a big deal. Out of the ones i have i'd rank them:
    1. Structor 2. Exgraver 3. Dr.Crank 4. Heavylabor

    I will try to fill picture requests if i can

    Vehicle Mode:

    Robot Mode:

    Combined Mode:

    For scale -

    In combined mode he scales pretty well with perfect effect and classics figures, but i still think the individual bot modes are a bit too tall

    oh well, he still looks badass as Devastator

    Did you figure out how to configure the gun based on any sort of instructions that come with Dr. Cru(a)nk, or just do it based on what seemed logical based on the pieces provided already? I'm guessing the later will be the case, but hoping for the former!

    yeah, it's hard to keep it lined up as when there's slack in the line it comes off the pulleys and gets tangled, i'm kinda waiting to see if someone comes up with a solution before i attempt it again

    I'd love to see more pictures of these guys alongside other classics figures (Seekers, Autobot Cars like Prowl/Jazz etc). The thing holding me back from getting these is that the Bot modes seem a little too big to fit in with the other classics comfortably.
