I would say yes. I noticed my waist stopped clicking. However knees, inner and outer ratchets still clicking. Fix is required. Unique Toys Ragnaros (Combaticons/Bruticus) My guess is UT is going to have to send out some replacement parts. For failed ratchets that don't hold weight. DX9/UT have often been known for their either "fake ratchets" just designed to click and not to hold a joint in place (Their Springer,Sandstorm, Mightron) Or just don't work (Dx9 Tyrant/Galvatron - Arms don't ratchet due to wrong sized mushroom screw, and now their Onslaught). Not the end of the world, but still QC is QC. Too bad on such fine figures.
