    Mine actually does not have that tab. And it also doesn’t seem to have a spot where a tab would’ve been which is odd. I’ll do another look once I’m home but it didn’t appear to be there!

    Yea that's odd,maybe it's a 1st release type of just deal. Anyways i ended up using the original/translucent wrist with the Solid Hand and it works/looks fine. I will say though,be VERY CAREFUL with the fingers. Mines feel really delicate and if it break,I'm shit outta luck lol. Already had to deal with a broken GP Swoop thumb this past year!

    I will definitely be keeping an eye on those finger joints! Mine feel pretty good so far. And I did some close inspection and I can’t find where any tab ever was. The flap has an indent on the rotating joint as well that holds it nice and snug against the wrist piece

    I have a 1st release SB and the Black version, both from new. V.1 has no tab on the flap and no tab holes on either solid or clear hand, Black has a tab on the flap and a tab hole on the hand. Someday I’ll finally get the Crystal version, I guess it’ll have the tab as well?

    Thanks for the heads up guys! Was gonna take a pic and show the tabs but with your explanation it makes sense. Anyways I've always loved this figure and now with the Solid Fist,it looks so much better! Shame that C9 didn't offer it with the 2nd batch/V2. I think if I was ever to sell off my collection,I'd probably hold to QuakeBlast as he just looks so Badass!

    You see them pop up here and there on eBay. Just have it "Saved" and hopefully you find a deal. Seen them go for $45 sometimes.

    Yeah, I'm hoping there's an Ebay sale or promotion going on soon. I'd like to pick up the gray/black version of Quakeblast. Just for fun. Looks like a beast of a bot.

    @D0nut It happens man. I recall getting scammed 5x's trying get the KO IF War Giant lol. The random low price I was speaking of is usually collector's who wanna get rid of it. Just have what you want "Saved" on eBay and you never know. This year I actually got MMC Rodimus (Shattered Glass) for $50/Free Shipping.

    Today friends, I pulled Quakeblast apart and installed the new LEDs that @paul5409 sold me on eBay! I ordered a hose and he threw in the LEDs which was very cool.

    I noticed the black version is sold out and no longer available. It's the one I waited on buying, and now it's no where to be found.

    It would be nice if these companies reissued their sold out items.

    FansToys isn't going to make a black version of their Quakewave...

    Maybe, just maybe I broke it or something XD

    For left ankle, it was already able to do forward tilt, but for the right ankle, when I tried the same there was some cracking sound. Since both were in good shape, no physical damage noticed, stability was fine, maybe it's just the normal feature?

    I'm not sure. But thanks! :)

    I looked and it is definitely a joint... Maybe clearance issue or something. Thanks for the explanation!
