    Saw Paddles on sale ($60 shipped) and thought it was a steal just to get a swimmer dino.

    Anyone had problems tabbing the dino neck to the underside of the chest piece?

    I never could get that neck to tab in on mine. I just said F it and left untabbed.

    The neck on Neptune is also nearly impossible to tab in. I believe they work the same.

    Also, where did you see Paddles for $60? That's an incredible price! I'd love to get him for that!

    Got it from one of the more reliable Taobao sellers. Happen to see the price while buying metallic PX Vulcan.

    The knees? Do I have to fold them down as much as they’ll go? Will check it out tomorrow.

    Yes, the knee joints. The upper legs should be parallel with the flat part that was under the chest. Then the part between the double joints at the knee should be at a 45-degree angle back toward the body. Don't rotate the upper knee ratchets too far. Then the lower knee ratchets rotate inward until the feet meet their pegs.

    I'm embarassed to admit this, but I like this.

    I might seek it out.

    Has ANYONE else made a Paddles (not a custom)?

    Only Planet X so far.

    >>>>>

    I will likely rub the sword handles down with 91% alcohol to get the paint off.
    I do not want to give stress fractures to the hands on my Caelus.

    If anyone that has Triton doesn't want the two orange caelus swords and is willing to sell them, let me know.

    Tony (Robotoybase) has Triton on sale for $50. Note that shipping is not exactly cheap, but should still be a good deal.

    Anyone know if Planet X has a contact regarding broken bits?

    Finally picked this guy up, tried the shoulder cannon mode, and one of the pegs just flat out refused to come out

    Facebook's Messinger is the best way to get a hold of them. Note (and this is from personal experience): PX will tell you to contact the place where you brought your Paddles from and push that theme till end. Go ahead and do so. PX will eventually have it replaced. However, Planet X will take their sweet time to get that matter resolved. You have to be hella-patient and just remind them a few times. I had an issue with one of my Caelus' swords that came with Paddles. I had to contact the place where I bought paddles at, and PX did replace the blade but it took them a couple of months.

    "Eventually replaced"----as in they send it to the retailer, or they send it themselves direct to you? I've been waiting like a year for a part for Apocslypse, and have contacted both several times.

    They sent it to the retailer I bought it from and the retailer sent it to me with one of my orders. If they've taken a year to address the issue regarding apocalypse, issue them a formal complaint (you're within your right to be angry at this point).
