    Yep he wouldn't even reimburse him for the Ditka knee kits. You can go for his Stunticons but as they say "when there's smoke there's fire." I'm staying away from them.

    I just noticed in peaugh's review of Kingzilla that the Kingorilla face plate is just 2 leg parts that clip into the original headsculpt.

    If anything, Keith should definitely consider selling these off as a cheap option for those who don't want to purchase Kingzilla just like FT did with Grinder.

    I find myself just putting this guy back in ape mode. He just has an awesome presence that way. I do love his bot
    Mode, but it's just a little too big and plain. I think it needs more paint, but I have no clue where I would add.

    Yeah. After the "luck" I've had with my releases from them and after hearing about Keith charging for the knee fixes I'm canceling my Stunticon preorder.

    The worst part is that I'll probably still Kingzilla just to complete the set. Otherwise it'll bug me...

    There are several ways of doing it:

    - no replacement/improvement parts at all
    - replacement parts sent for free
    -replacement parts for free but with shipping
    - replacement parts not for free
    - replacement parts for free but with another figure of the set
    - replacement parts for free but with an unrelated figure

    Pick your poison.

    I honestly don't know which company does this or that. Maybe we could make a thread :D 

    In my experience Gigapower sends parts for free (probably the best option), MMC wants you to pay the shipping (well, I could be wrong)... But there are real "replacement" parts and "improvement" parts, widespread issues and isolated issues... It's all over the place.

    So I found mine had fallen over in the night, nothing broken on him or any other bots. The cause seems to be the backpack, a couple of weeks staying posed stoically on the shelf and its given up and just refuses to stay tabbed in at all now.
    I think that's me out now on KFC/XTB, can't look good on a shelf if you can't even stand up.

    Well, we also have to remember the good things that ibot do for us... It is always easy to remember the mistakes and bad things about something and not the other way around...

    You can't complain! It's faithful to the G1 toy!

    Bad jokes aside... Check if the tabs go all the way into the slots while pressing the hinge at the bottom upward! That happened to me too... Now I can shake him and the backpack stay in place!

    Not my G1 toy, that rusted pin does wonders for it!

    Joking aside i spent a good 20 mins messing with it to no avail, all the tabs are going in (bottom 2 and the cockpit one), its just not holding :(

    Same here. At first it held very nicely. Now after about three transformations (9 in total) it refuses to hold like before. It holds but it is definitely weaker than before.

    Would be but if he was I thought he would of wanted to clear up the issues for the sake of his costumers or give an explanation at the very least

    In business 1 or 2 instances of doing wrong by your customers cancels out all the other good things you've done. You're only as good as your reputation. If Apple or Amazon ran their business like Keith they'd be done for within a year.
    @ferrari35 is correct but he's more than just the PR rep.

    It's a bit disconcerting that ibot has come to this, isn't it? And you know that i had to have my fingers on Kingorrilla replaced and the tabbing issues continue. Sad development :(

    Haven't paid too much attention to the thread. Seems like I'm not the only one with figure not being able to hold guns.

    I think I need to go back to limiting my support of XTB and KFC. Sucks they've been on a roll as of late
