    They may have fixed it since, but when Alt Prime was released, there were a few complaints about loose joints and the quality of the plastic.


    I was wondering, has anyone had the same problems with Alt Nemesis Prime? I've yet to open mine, and if there's a risk of the same problem as on Prime, i'm just going to leave it unopened.

    My Nemesis Prime is just as bad as Alt Prime in terms of lose joints.

    Plus the little panels that you flip down behind the legs don't stay in place as well as Prime's, adding to the floppy lep problem. (Plus they are a bitch to pull out and push back in)

    Well my Nemesis Prime tends to be a little loose on the back legs which makes him want to bend and fall over backwards if he's not positioned right every now and then. However I would not call this a big problem as its not too loose, just a little. Other then that both my Prime's are actually really stiff in the joints and really no complaints on either one here.

    My Nemesis's head is very loose. it can hold it self up, but moving it is sooooo easy and i'm afraid over time it will get worse.

    Ouch.

    I guess it's staying unopened then.

    Thanks for the advice everyone.

    I just gave up on getting mine back in to a truck. It felt like it was going to break :(

    I haven't noticed any real difference between the two, Nemesis' head is a little easier to turn and the ball joints on his feet are stiffer, as are the the joints for the truck tailgate.

    Footnote:

    Got my 'backup, just in case the first one goes missing' Nem Prime this morning.

    The box was so beat, that i decided to open it, and i've had no real problems with looseness. Some of the joints could be tighter, but no real problems.
