    Yeah. Future is a good solution to that problem, but I think that tightening the palm screws might also work.

    Tightening the palm screws didn't work for me, but future is a workable solution.

    Now… My experience may be an anomaly… But I contacted them in APRIL… And just got my parts 2 weeks ago… in AUGUST!
    That being said, I LOVE Gigapower!
    They did indeed help me, sent me my part for FREE, no shipping even.
    Honestly, I didn't mind the wait.
    Fact is, slow or not, they came through!

    So definitley give them a bit of time!

    Was just about to order the two chrome dinobots that are available so far but it looks like even though the chrome versions are the better looking, more expensive options, they dont come with all the cool accessories that come with the metallic? That seems pretty shitty. And there doesnt seem to be any way to order them individually.

    To gp, they stated that the metallic version is their flagship/premium/special/limited edition. That is y the metallic version will comes bundled with all accessories. The chrome version is actually the 'normal' release, which is y it comes with less accessories. gp also did mentioned that all accessories may be make available separately. But we won't know for sure when they'll be available

    Price wise, both metallic and chrome version should be the same. But i guess it may also be variations based on local supply and demand thing

    I had the same dilemma. I was kind of stuck in an infinite loop trying to decide between the chrome or the flames. It was a black Friday sale on the chrome version that made the decision for me. I have no regrets and I'm still holding out hope that Giga will release a flame accessory pack once all 5 have been made.

    Finally got mine after a scam from eBay. I ended up ordering from Taobao, a Chrome version from a seller that included the flame. Fingers on the right hard are slightly loose but will try the screws in the palm when I get home. It's not too bad though. No blemishes on the head either from the polystyrene packaging.

    Needless to say I'm happy!

    Same here, my hips finally showed up last week, and Guttur stands tall and proud now. It's pretty awesome they would do that, and the actual Gigasaurs are just amazing. I'm actually tempted to get a full set of metallics as well, which says a lot, because I don't do much double-dipping at this scale, and honestly I wasn't even that big of a dinobot fan to begin with apart from Grimlock and Slag.

    Full disclosure, I haven't got any GigaPower Dinobots yet (they're next on my list of purchases), but from my understanding, both Grassors comes with the flames but only metallic Guttur has the flame effect parts. The stuff that metallic Grassor has which chrome Grassor doesn't are the silver thigh pieces and the silver horn pieces (and the metallic ones have blue dino eyes while the chrome ones have red dino eyes).

    Other than that, it's mainly the difference between paint/chrome. Metallic Grassor appears to have some extra painted details on the parts that are chromed on the chrome version. Guttur may be the same.

    Took me a few weeks to figure it all out but I think that's all the info you need. Everything else should be the same between both releases.

    Impatiently waiting for Metallic Grassor to either go on sale or to see a used one pop up.
    REALLY want it by Christmas, so if nothing else, I hope Black Friday comes thru!

    Chrome just looks too good to settle for metallic so i guess I'll just go without the cool accessories. Does the chrome version havd hip problems Too? It seems the only way to get replacement hips is by buying the other metallic version, which is insane.

    Many retailers included Grassor's flame accessories on the first release, but I'm not sure if they still have any. I think TFSource (TFCurse) may have been selling them separately. Hip problems on chrome Guttur or Grassor? No hip problems on Grassor. If you just want the replacement hips without buying metallic Grassor, contact them and they will get them to you. I've got 2 replacement hips from them, one for chrome Guttur and one for metallic Guttur, since I'm going chrome but still have metallic Guttur. The parts are actually identical.

    Is there a reference picture or vid that highlights/compares the metallic vs chrome look for the Giga Dinos?
