I've mentioned this before, and I'm hoping this won't be seen as spam for its frequency, but considering there was a recent development To recap, the Combiner Wars Megatron mold has two available upgrade kits, one by DX9 and one by X2Toys. I liked the look of the X2Toys upgrade kit more than DX9's, so I went with that. I got it earlier in the year from an eBay seller, though it arrived with two of the same shin/foot pieces, which the seller sent a replacement for. For the longest time, I enjoyed it, combined with a shapeways cannon muzzle it was a really great looking Megatron. Then in June, there was trouble in Paradise. The left shoulder upgrade piece snapped along its swivel housing, after minimal transformations (because neither DX9's or X2Toys' kits look great in tank mode). I then realized that EVERY piece of the upgrade kit had a crack or fracture on it in a vital spot, and if I kept manipulating them, they would likely break sooner or later. I thought to myself I should replace the upgrade kit, and it was then I discovered X2Toys did not produce a lot of this upgrade kit. Every Transformers outlet was sold out of it, aside from BBTS, which still has it listed as "pre-order". DX9's is plentiful and cheaper, but I still didn't like the look enough to get it, so for a while, it was a loss. Then around the start of September, I discovered TFsource had the item listed as Available again. Apprehensive, I wrote to TFsource first, asking about the kit's availability and if anything could be done in the event it was actually the kit being made out of shoddy plastic that would inevitably break sooner or later. They couldn't reply with much beyond "we only have a small stock of this item", which lead me to panic, buy one and hope for the best. (sure enough, they were sold out two days later). The second kit arived today, with the left shoulder upgrade part broken right out of the box, even if in a different place than my first kit. Is there anybody else who owns this upgrade kit that has had similar bad luck with it? I'm not sure if I'm more aggravated or just disappointed by it.
