    Just wondering how common a problem this was. My Nexus Maximus snapped with the clear plastic where the large pin is where his head swings up. Who else?

    C'mon funny guys, keep derailing this thread and I'll keep giving spam infractions. Tired of stupid crap like that turning this forum into something more childish than it already is.

    I don't have this figure, however My original Energon version broke in the same manner. I think you could put it back on, however I exchanged it.

    Er, yeah, that part's a breakaway hinge. It's designed to do that...

    Joking?

    I remember a couple reviewers mentioning the potential for breakage considering the thickness of the plastic with the fact that it's a joint, but it's never happened to me despite the numerous times I've removed the head to swap with a modded one.

    I saw the potential for breakage so I threw the thing into storage.

    Yeah, a lot of people had that problem. Myself included. He was like that right out of his little baggie. I remember hearing that FP was replacing broken ones(?) But honestly it's not a figure I'm really crazy about and the head actually sits pretty securely in gestalt form so I'll live.

    Post some pictures when you can.

    My NEXUS PRIME (that name is offical now!) has not had any problems, but my Bruticus Maximus has had some issues regarding the head peice.

    I haven't had any problems with it, but I can see the area that might be an issue and I've been trying to be careful with the figure.

    Didn't realize this was a problem with the original also. I'll have to be careful with mine. No pics, as others have said, he sits securely in gestalt form so which is what I leave mine in. I was just wondering about whether mine was a bad batch or if it was a common issue. Thanks guys.

    Mine did this when I was transforming it the other week. Fortunately it snapped right back into place without any hint of damage. I've been careful with it since and he's held together fine.
