    I know it's gone back and forth whether that is a misassembly or not, but I have a feeling I'm going to make the change with the shoulder joints. At minimum, it's considered a mod, and people can decide which way they want to go. But I like what I'm seeing with the switch-up, so I'll likely be following suit.

    I guess mine will probably stay as is, because most of the time it's gonna stay in robot modes anyway.

    Didn't even fix the panels on Legends Kup, although it bugs me, that the lines are unaligned.

    That's $32.61 USD. I can assure you that FunPub Deluxes were never that cheap... I get that the price sucks, I do, but let's not sully Amazon's name. (FunPub sucks.)

    Mine is out for delivery for today so hopefully by the evening I can be punched!


    EDIT:

    Took a nap and woke up to him in my living room. I did the mod right out the box and he is great!! Might scoop up another one before he sells out. Very dope toy

    So I've finally (FINALLY) received my Punch-Counterpunch and I need advice on two bits of joint maintenance;

    1) The shoulder posts, I've performed The Fix on them but I've found them to be very loose, drooping down with not much effort or weight on them. I was wondering how I'd go about tightening them up, because I've found in past the Floor Polish trick hasn't really worked for me. Maybe a small ring of paper/card on the peg to get more friction in there?

    2) The thigh swivels, seen a lot of reports about how overtight they are and that shaving some plastic off can fix it, but I've NEVER disengaged a mushroom peg before, much less an overtight one, and I'm wondering if anyone has any tried-and-true methods for getting those suckers apart without breaking them?

    Thanks in advance for any replies :)

    Best advice - hopefully you simply reversed each individual shoulder pegs... swapping left to right was never discussed, but may lead to intolerance issues.

    When performed correctly, they are stable, and lock into place for both modes.

    As for the latter, I have no problems.

    It takes some force, but the legs will come off of the mushroom pegs. I used a metal nail file (yep, you read that right) and sanded down the little ridge that formed because of the mold line and put it all back together, voila, thigh swivel.
