    took an hour or two to install the new hips for guttur, but my enthusiasm for this line has been renewed. my search for grassor begins!

    Are the new Guttur hips for BOTH releases, or JUST the Chrome one?

    I was actually under the impression they came with at least the Metallic, and not Chrome because the Metallic was the first release with the hip issues. I thought they fixed it for the Chrome Guttur.

    I don't think hips came with either release of grassor, which was why I was so peaved-- GP had thrown the idea round so I never asked for replacement hips because I thought they would be with the new release, and I'd just wait it out. But they nixed that idea and all the replacements were gone so I had to wait just over a year to get them.

    They came with Guttur, didn't they (Chrome Version).

    Installing them took a bit, but I must admit it was worth it.

    Met guttur is the one with hip quality issue. The screw in the hip joint are loose in most of the figure.
    Chrome guttur do not have such issue of the looseness. However, the design in the hips of both met and chrome guttur have a lot of play between each click.

    Gp redesign this hip piece with new ratchet. Very clicky rachet without any play between each click. It is similar to the hip design in grassor.
    So since met guttur hip is the one with real qc issue (loose screw), the new hip design is included in the met grassor but not included in chrome grassor

    I believe it's clearly shown on the box of the metallic Grassors as part of the contents of the box, so it should be shipping with all metallic Grassors.

    The new replacement hips that only come with metallic grassor are 100% compatible with chrome Guttur. Chrome Guttur does have improved hips, but there is still forward/backward play in the ratchet. I requested hips from GP for both metallic and chrome Guttur, and I received 2 identical hips. After installing into chrome Guttur, there is NO play in the ratchets and he can do a superman pose with no leg droopage. Huge improvement!

    Good to know. Even though my Chrome Guttur only stays in Dino mode I might as well request some directly from GIGA.

    Anyone else have hip ratchets like this on Grassor? Strong enough to hold a pose but still won't really support own weight. Knees are a bit weak too as they can easily fold out from the knee, as in when transforming. Don't get me wrong, it'll hold a pose but just not solid joint strength. He's heavy in the legs this guy

    Messaged Giga about hips on both my Grassor and Guttur and they've only offered Guttur replacements so far

    I want to double dip on the Dinobots, but Giga does not seem to have their QC under control.

    It's pretty relative. I'd say the QC is good and they're willing to replace parts. I'd put their QC above other 3rd parties and their customer service also. It's just that I'm fussy so don't let that dissuade you

    You, sir, are correct. I would have had to buy metal version to get the hips, when I was gonna go chrome from there on out. Yeah. I was being ...kind of a little bitch about this.
    But then the $200 paperweight was no fun either, and I had double dipped. :/
    Btw, thread needs more pics.

    Well, in the end we have a 'sort of' widespread issue (my copy is fine, and probably the 85% is too) with their first release. And they gave replacements for free to everybody directly without questions, proofs or whatsoever. The other three releases are almost top QC (and at least, on par with FT and other companies; perfection is not in this world).

    In some aspects (paint for example) they are maybe the best out there...

    PS @daimchoc : metallic Grassor is out from June if I remember correctly... I got mine in july.
