That's disturbing. I think you need to get a fix or a new figure.
Chest on my Flipout was flawless. I peeled carefully just in case. Had a shoulder balljoint pop off during transformation but that was the only incident and it was reattached without too much trouble.
Mine was missing this:
Already contacted BBTS. It’s invisible in bot mode, but that car looks too sweet to be missing a chunk.
That's the piece that fell off mine. Sent mine back to BBTS for a scratch as well.
Holy crap! I went back and looked for your post and it inspired me to check the floor of the room where in unboxed him...guess what I found!
Edit: it’s funny. I bought Transformissions Wildrider (I just...like Wildrider ok?) and ended up having to crazy glue a wing mirror onto him, and I had to repair the old FP one a million years ago. Next Wildrider I order (and there’s gonna be one) I better just get a fresh tube of glue before I unbox him.
One of the brakelights on mine isn't fully painted. That's the only defect I could find.
I am going to use Paik's suggested alternate leg transformation. Looks aight.
I got my Flipout yesterday, very, very happy with it, a step up in quality from Crackup (though I had no issues w/ Crackup, just seems different/better). This is the set for robot mode for me, as long as the rest are of same quality and likeness as these 1st 2. May display them in combined mode somewhat to go w/ my Jet Commander KO OS Superion, at least until FT's comes out. Though, I feel they scale well with other MP's, robot mode at least.
The red paint on this guy is absolutely gorgeous,and I love how the side windows lock the shoulder pieces in place (an actual "snap"), as well as the back piece which folds up and then snaps behind the head. Definitely my favorite so far, can't wait to see the others come out.
Funny, I am missing that exact part but on the opposite side.
Sent Toy Dojo a message. Damnit such a small part too.
Had Flipout in my stack at tfsource for a while, and noticed it was finally instock tonight.Threw a Potp Optimal in there with it and told it to ship. Now it says Flipout is in preorder. Huh?
, and now the email says its in stock. Hm.
where can i find this alternate transformation? is it in one of his video reviews? thanks in advance!
Honestly, I just love the quality and feel of Fans Toys products. Plus they nail the aesthetic or spirit of the G1 cartoon while giving them a mature feel. I need all of those things. At 45 yrs old my connection to the toon is almost purely nostalgic, the feel of the FT product plus the mature vibe make me feel more justification in my purchases. The only real let down they have (for me) to date is Omegas hips....they SUCK, but he looks beast. Forgive the long answer, but that's why, I'm always satisfied with their product.
So, you're going to have a bot set and a combined set? Hmmm, cool, that's really bold mixing and matching, I wonder if the aesthetics will match up.
Hmmmm indeed, I'm waiting for The Chosen Prime to get +prowl and flipout, things seem to come in so late with them...in comparison to others. No issues other than that though.
Looks awesome, can't wait for mine.
I am concerned about their combined mode though....first combiners don't typically go well.....
no just a bot set they look like they would look ok together to me ... never liked menasor but like how the individual bots look
No DHII you don't want a g2 set !!! but it's pretty!!!
And I switched to tcp because they used to get things earlier than others
Keep in mind the TCP team got into a fairly good accident coming back fro the Con. Nobody was injured but I'm betting its slowed things down a good bit.
