    (MODS please move this to the appropriate forum if this one isn't correct.)

    I think this is sorely needed. One place to have all fixes for every Hercules member as we compile the most common issues.

    I'm going to create a slot for each bot.
    I'd love to get the help of Mods and also If people want to PM me with the latest updated fixes for bots that have been released. I will try and comb through the mega thread and get things going.

    So Far, there are issues with Exgravers Shovel, Heavy Labor's hip ratchets and now I'm hearing that Structor has a similar Ratchet issue.

    Let's get this official "Fixes" Mega-thread started! If you have info that needs to be added please leave a post or PM me with links and I will repost them here!!

    Exgraver Fixes

    HeavyLabor now comes with an extra Shovel Arm replacement for Exgraver, but it is uncertain how long this will continue past the initial run of Heavy Labor.
    Hopefully, the next run of Exgraver will have improvements so that a replacement is no longer necessary.

    Heavy Labor Fixes

    Video Tutorial by Demonss
    "Just like I did with Exgraver I take apart heavylabor here and show you how to fix the problem with the leg where it won't completely straighten, and I also take apart the body and show you how to fix the springs in the legs so they don't destroy the gears of the legs..

    I HIGHLY recommended you do the fix to the leg gears before it eats your teeth.. The spring doesn't give at all...

    Let me know what you think!"

    Currently TFC is planning to ship new fixed pieces for the Heavy Labor hip ratchet problem. It will most likely be included with one of the last two figures. What exact pieces will be updated is not stated yet.

    That's good to hear. I think having ONE simple place to find all issues will be of GREAT help to all the fans who are embarking on this expensive endeavor.

    Yup, I agree. I'm hoping this can happen. MODS. :)  Please!

    Just so it's easier for fans to stay on top of any potential issues with this pricey set. Help us all rest easy at night. Haha.

    I totally agree, but TFC is really going out of their way to make things right. And this project is pretty darn exciting. But yes, for the money, it's scary to have these issues.

    I think this thread is a great idea, I have yet to receive any of the bots yet, but being able to come to one spot for fixes will be nice.

    Helpful if I ever happen to get these, but for now, the only fixes they need are lower prices.
