    So I was transforming all my Classics to display and I got to my BotCon Thundercracker.

    Being extra careful as usual, I transform him and get to the tailfins on his ankles.

    I get to the one on the right leg.

    *SNAP*

    My heart sinks.

    :(  That sucks, man.

    Just buy an Acid Storm, do a parts-swap, and repaint as needed. Good luck.

    Was that the rotational joint, or the joint to flip the horizontal fin up against the leg? Just wondering as I almost never bother to flip those up. (in my case, I didn't want to weaken the joint and make for floppy fins)

    My condolences. I busted my Botcon Shokoract years back.

    It's the joint to flip the horizontal fin up against the leg.

    I just spent the past hour shaving down the pin area as well as the fin itself so the damned thing isn't so tight. It was because of the tightness that it snapped.

    I just superglued the broken piece back on and I'm hoping I can flip the fin up and down without the piece breaking off again.

    But what really is making me go on a mental rampage is OF ALL THE #$%^ING ONES IT HAD TO BE HIM.

    Ouch, yeah sorry that sucks man. That part of that mold always seems dangerously stiff to me. Like you said sucks that it had to be TC/botcon exclusive. You could smash an Acid Storm to bits to take out some anger and make poor TC feel better?

    wow that sucks. sorry to hear about poor Thundercracker. Hopefully you can get it fixed. If you have the dough, you could always get Henkei TC.

    Razerwire I am feeling you at this moment not touching mine after reading this. There is the Henkei one though. If this were Thrust then you would really be screwed. Thundercracker can be replaced to a better degree than Thrust or Dirge.
