    I was just taking a look at my Botcon Rhinox and noticed a little problem similar to BW10th ann. Rhinox. Check out the shoulders.

    There's a fix for that. It's called a screwdriver and a lot of guts.


    But that sucks man.

    That sucks. Especially considering the price paid for the convention package. o_O

    Rhinox individually shouldn't be TOO expensive.

    Yup. Shoulders are on backwards. The screws should be in the back.

    I don't know about the meat former, but the convention one is assembled correctly. The shoulders are put together that way so that the screws don't show in vehicle mode.

    Robots in disguise, and all that. ;)

    The fix for this is, send me your Botcon Primal figure, and in the morning the shoulders will be fixed, guaranteed! not a guarantee.

    My Botcon Rhinox has loose front wheels. The wheel/fender assembly ratchets around, but is kinda floppy in any position. Not sure if Cybertron Landmine is like that or not, but it doesn't feel right.

    BW10th Rhinox is misassembled. Botcon Rhinox isn't.

    Despite the screws facing forwards, Botcon Rhinox is not misassembled. Cybertron Landmine and Galaxy Force Guardshell are exactly the same way. Check out the shoulder joints from the top, and you'll notice that they're not symmetrical. The balljoint is offset towards the front. If you reverse the shoulders, they won't be able to transform properly.

    Easy fix, just do the swapping. Here's his shoulder without the screws. That's all you'll be dealing with :)

    My BC Rhinox has one of his smokestacks installed backwards... a fact I didn't notice until packing up my toys on Sunday evening. :banghead:
