    Pretty surprised. Asia already got it over a week and even some US collectors have it now. Surprised new reviews are not popping up already.

    For those who have him, are those chest pieces that are incorrect able to be popped out? If parts are offered later, is it something that we can just switch out with a small flathead screwdriver?

    If you can't trust a Prime, you can't trust anyone ;)

    I love how that Chinese guy got a replacement part already and yet western retailers don't even have the figures themselves yet.

    Yep.

    I'm also waiting for them to get GT's Optimus Primal.

    I'd complain harder, but I got my reissue Sovereign from them before some people that bought from Chinese sellers like Baba.

    Are you saying if he was called "The Fallen Prime", he'd have been more trustworthy?

    Oh God, don't use WD-40 to lube your toys up. It'll deteriorate the plastic.
    Ceramic and silicone grease/oil, maybe lithium. People tend to use 90-weight shock oil though I haven't managed to find any so I use Tamiya's Ceramic Grease ("Cera-Grease") but it makes non-ratchet joints a bit too loose.

    Incorrect chest pieces?

    Do you mean the yellow shoulder clamps? I noticed on mine that I had 2 right hand ones, but when I looked at other pictures online, it seems that everyone who'd taken pictures had the same issue, so figured DX9 had decided to do a bit of cost saving... but are you saying that we should have got a left hand one?

    Or are you talking about the scratched front chest panels?

    Or something different?

    Same here, is the damn BC Canada Post on strike?
    It only took 1 day from China to Canada, and after 1 week it is still in Richmond!

    They're notoriously slow. I hate it when tracking says, "RICHMOND, item has arrived...blah blah blah". Reddits full of threads of people blasting the slowness of anything that goes through Richmond.
