    How were the legs hard for people? I took him out of the box and figured it out in seconds without instructions...split the leg, flip.out the slots on the tread part, and slot the pegs into those slots...close up and done. Is there another step I'm missing?

    The most annoying is how to get those upper leg part through the lower parts. I did it once. Took me forever to figure out how to do it without bending. I still don't know it.

    Awaiting my copy to ship from Baba. Figure it might take a tad longer after he was pounded during the 15% eBay Flash Sale. Scored my Terminus for 282 and some change and then with what eBates I had, stored from my first month, it was 270 something shipped. Think I'll be pleasantly pleased. I'll grab the chest emblem from jream once the shin vents and boob fans are ready for Make Toys' Skywarp and Thundercracker.

    Beyond the emblem and ToyHax labels, if they exist yet, is there any other add ons I should be considering?

    Howdy guys, I just got to open my Terminus Giganticus, and I noticed a small problem that I hope someone can help me out with

    First, a brief setup. I travel A LOT for work. And so I send my packages to my brother's place and he stores them in the attic. I returned to the area for this month (May '18) and I went through my stuff. I found that my FT-20's left shoulder wasn't ratcheting, whereas the right side was. I took it apart (easy enough), and saw that it was missing the actual ratchet mechanism. I have emailed the retailer that I bought it from, and messaged Fans Toys on the FB page, but I figured that I'd pursue multiple avenues just in case.

    I'll post an image as well if the system lets me. If anyone else has seen or had this issue, how did you resolve it. And is there a 3d printed fix for this, perhaps? I'd certainly pay for that. Just curious, and thanks for any insight that ya'll may have!

    I'm pretty confident that either your retailer or FT direct will cover you. Given that the guardian redeco came out pretty recently, there should be extra parts lying around.

    Try to check in with your reseller or get in contact with @dalianjj. Hope it gets resolved.

    They've been really great at providing replacement parts. The only time I couldn't get a part was some time ago when Springer was sold out and they weren't making parts at the time. Was told to email back in April and so I did and now I have the part I needed.

    as several members post here they will help!
    I'm sure with negative points of the FT-20
    They will further analyze the upcoming releases such as Devy, Superion, Mesanor and Bruticus!

    Ouch......i feel for the owner.....that shouldn't happen to a USD 200+ toy.....that looks like the hip connection of the front thread right?

    is that silicone or glue thats on the surface?

    I also have big beautiful figure I love more is frustrating a little groin
    I hope that the FT or some company develop some update to give firmness!

    Surely the next combiners will be great.

    So does that mean you'll pay the balance for the entire giftset after all 5 bots are released? Won't that take months if not years for all 5?

    The value will change when the whole set appears!
    I really did it to a friend of mine.
    He prefers yes, he can not get member by member
    But I think this year releases 1 or 2 members.
    I'd rather buy it when it shows up on showZ.

    Anyone else think the 20G will run out soon? Doesn't seem that way but I'm also close to pulling the trigger. Not really sure what to do. Is it really that limited?

    If that's what sellers and FT is saying then yeah it is limited. It's really a dice roll if you wait. Maybe there's not enough interest in this repaint but then again you never know. I picked one up just to play it safe. A little under $300 shipped from Taobao.

    What was their shipping quote at the warehouse? I’m guessing the pricing is different for 5kg versus under 2kg? How does it hold up for you? Playable? Thanks always for your kindness.
