    If I'm a one off problem, then that's more than fine... in fact, I'd prefer it because I'd never wish anything damaged or defective on anyone, so this is more just wondering than anything.

    Also, I'm already getting a replacement, so that's "all good".

    Anyways, with the FP Bruticus kit, the left arm connector/missle pack is loose... it doesn't "click" at each shoulder position (how you can lean his shoulders/arms inwards) liek the other arm does. Like, if you lean his arm inwards, it just falls back down... it's crazy.

    Jsut wondering if anyone else has seen this.

    Mine's OK. Good that you're getting a replacement though; that set is AWESOME and nothing should spoil anyone's enjoyment of it.

    I had this. The teeth had been ground down, and there was what I presume was powdered plastic instead.

    IIRC, I swapped the part from the one shoulder it was in with the other. The part is identical in both missile pods, but because it's installed in opposite directions, the ground portion now doesn't contact with the ratchet nub. The problem is solved for now, but I'm a little concerned that the ratchet could wear out over time, like Defender's knee joints.

    Nice! I tried wedging it out on mine just for the heck if it, but, it won't come out... it seems WAY in there.
