    Everyone be careful with Warbot Defender. A friend just bought a lot from BBTS with a snapped in half Warbot Defender. We took a look at it, and we noticed his top half is just glued together in two places. So if you put enough stress, snap it comes off.

    He customized it and it was an extremely easy fix. That part should have been Screwed together and not glued. I just hope that over the years the glue doesn't dry up and snap.

    I will see if I can get him to snap some pics of it so that we can all see what I am referring to. The good news is a little crazy glue will fix it, if not the figure will hold together by itself cause there are snaps.

    That's exactly why I didn't buy him. He just looks so flimsy.

    It's not a flimsy figure. I've transformed mine TONS of times and no issues.

    :lol  other than remembering how to position the arms (without instructions), I've never had a problem transforming him. Mine doesn't feel flimsy at all.

    Its not poor materials you will be hard pushed to find better than fansroject what you re reffering to is poor construction and tbf there arent many with complaints about the figure basiclly not enough glue was applied its an easy fix although screw would have been a better choice construction wise

    Yea mine's fine. Just a stripped screw in one shoulder that needed to be replaced. And now the whole figure is nice and tight. No extra glue anywhere.

    Haha this for me too. I've never had a problem with any of my Fansproject products. They are top notch as far as quality goes. But as with everything, there's always gonna be a few that slip through. That and people who don't know how to handle them without breaking them with their ham fists.
