    So I've received two sets of the Matrix of Leadership upgrade set and was wodering if everyone's hands are as false adverstised as mine are? The thumbs are pretty much glued in place and break upon moving them and the fists seems glued closed. Anyone else have this problem?

    My understanding is that the thumbs are not actually meant to be poseable - just to have a bit of give for putting accessories in the hands and opening the hands.

    Ah, sadly my hands don't open. But that helps explain some of the issue I've been having.

    I'll get back to you when I ship them. I hear about a lot of problems, and hope mine are good to me if I treat them right. I just want them to replace my G2 Prime's long-lost fists and accessories, and slap that Matrix in his chest.

    My set had only ONE problem that was easily fixed.

    The pin used for the hands needed to be pushed in a little more so that I could open and close the hands. This had to be done to only one of the hands.

    Aside from that, if you support the joint the hands will open with no issue.

    Thanx

    This thing was kind of a real piece of crap in my book.

    The matrix and the matrix casing are about all that is salvagable. If I had paid more than $20, I would have been very pissed off about it. The axe is small, the hands are junky, the gun is less accurate than the Encore version and every one I've seen is warped.
