    How widespread is this issue?

    Mine has it, but if I get it just right when transforming it sits flush with no modification.

    Hopefully it's addressed for the X version, because I'm not sure shaving will be an option for that.

    Ahhhh...my eyes! How can some people be so cruel? I came here for some Cesium goodness, not for ... that ... thing! - Scoria still looks good! ;)

    My Grassor's tail is fine thus far. The only issue I had was the still-warm chrome on his dino-head being stuck to the Styrofoam in the packaging (which Gigapower quickly replaced).

    I can see replacement parts in the future for the back, all seem to have that issue.

    It's very possible that we'll get a replacement piece with cyclonus, if enough people have experienced this problem.

    Speaking of their Cyclonus, I hope they put a bit more into design and QC than seems to be the case here. While there are not major issues here that are a deal breaker, I for one, would have rather paid more for this to have been the equivalent quality of other FT products.

    That would be an ok solution for the standard version, but if they know it's a problem before the X is released, I'm hoping it's fixed on that so I don't have to worry about a replacement part.

    I would be eternally grateful if you could do this, thank you, Psychoshi and if you ever get Caesium could you do one for him as well, I'm willing to pay, thank you again!

    I like how most are saying they are fine with Soar and he doesn't seem out of place, yet almost every picture I see of him with the other dinos, there is always some form of trickery going on so he won't look so out of place, clever or strategic placement as I like to call it.

    :lol 

    Couldn't agree more, that Giga figure is a such a disasterpiece, I don't think I ever seen a figure oozing so much MEH out of every single orifice! What a trainwreck, even outdated Scoria still looks a million times better!

    MEH!

    He is a thing of beauty indeed, stunning alt-mode!

    As for the back issue, I think it's just the unpolished step of the transformation I was talking about the other day, you know; "knock this out quickly and put it out at a low price, so that Malware5 and the other three guys who complained about Scoria being outdated will have something to keep them occupied."

    It is an issue because the tolerance is so tiny. To make it sit flush on the back, you need to push down hard on the piece closest to the 'spine', when I do so, I usually hear a little click, it can be a bit daunting but it's nothing to be concerned about, kind of like when you transform Prowl into a car and you have to untab his chest, yeah, one of those kind of moments!

    Trying to tab it from the bit closest to the tail rarely gets it to sit flush..... will show a picture later of how mine sits!

    Both sides sit flush when I use the method I described earlier;

    Been playing around with this guy tonight and he's pretty nice. Not the massive upgrade from Scoria i wanted but still definitely a better figure.

    Very photogenic figure too!

    Nice shots.
    You should also post them here: **Supah Cleah Pics Thread 2017 TRANSFORMERS Edition--Rules in First Post**

    That battle axe that you took from We Jiang's oversized M01 Commander AOE Optimus Prime fits Cesium (or any other FT dino) very well since it is a melee weapon.
    Outside of Prime's energy hand axe from the G1 toon, I can't really picture any iteration of Prime with meleee weapons like a sword, axe, and shield. I guess we have Michael Bay to thank for that.

    Cheers!

    Yeah, the axe just seemed to fit Cesium really well. I like the idea that the dinobots are more melee weapon users than shooters. Very tempted to see if I can find any other similar sized melee weapons in my weapons box for the rest :D 

    And yeah we have Michael bay to “thank” for lots of things :lol

    Well, my original 3 are finally compete! I love Cesium. Feels close enough to the others to me... No complaints except for a slightly loose right hand. Red is a little off but not as much as in the photo. Much happier than I thought I would be and I'm so glad I didn't settle for Scoria.

    Got mine from Baba but shipping is taking unusually long for a Baba purchase. Anyone else experiencing such a delay?
