    Just got an email my retailer didn't get enough. Wonder why. I guess I will need to find him elsewhere.

    Well, it was either enormous crab, magpie or human. I thought enormous crab was most likely. :)

    Got my Grinder X today. He's beautiful. I always forget that the X versions aren't as washed out looking as they appear in a lot of pictures.

    Sever X is on his way (after the Chinese holiday is over) and then it's just a waiting game for Cesium X.

    I received the grinder head in the mail today, unfortunately, Grinder himself is held up in China customs . Once he gets processed, it shouldn’t be to much longer of a wait.

    Don't shoot me, but I've been following this thread off and on and it's 400 pages deep. I just got in my G1 head from BBTS, and am I crazy in assuming that all of them are missing the "screw hole" fill pegs on one side of the head? On the transparent neck area, there seems to be two missing screw plugs on mine. Is this on all of them, or should I contact someone about it?

    The factory head has the screw holes filled on both sides, unlike the G1 head.

    Use the plugs from the factory installed head on the new head? You don't really need them on a head you aren't using.

    Mine are all plugged so thats factory error.
    You could fix it but you paid for all the bits, I'd therefore want all the bits. Might be worth asking BBTS for either the plugs or a replacement.

    Is any site still selling the regular color scheme Grinder? Can't seem to find one anywhere.

    I considered this but couldn't see an easy gap for removing the factory plugs without scratching them to hell.

    Blah, that's what I was afraid of. I'll contact BBTS. If they don't have anymore or can't fix it, I could always do the switcheroo and swap out the others if I can figure out how to remove them without damage. Thanks guys! All online pics I could find were from the left (Grinder's left) side, so I couldn't tell for sure.
