I think he means one hip has the old ratchet, one has the new ratchet.
You're prolly right but it was hard to tell, ergo the question.
Correct, one leg has the new ratchet piece, the other leg has the old ratchet piece.
Here is whats funny, I ordered a replacement figure from Amazon and it was the exact same way, same leg had the new ratchet and same leg had the old ratchet. I thought that maybe hasbro was doing this to kinda "meet in the middle". Basically they are thinking that the leg with the new ratchet will improve combined mode and the old ratchet will help with robot and transformation.
But after taking the legs apart to swap the gear sets, I've came to the conclusion that they must have a bucket of the old gear sets and are splitting it up until they get rid of the excess stock. How do I know? The old ratchet design pieces on both of my units were a noticeably darker plastic color when compared to the new ratchet design.
I forgot to mention, something else I noticed that I found odd is the springs used in the primes. One spring is your standard issue shiny stainless steel spring with slight bluing to increase tinsel strength. But then the spring in the other leg is this cheap dull weak light gray thing. I am not even sure if they are made out of the same metal mix. The difference is very noticeable and is consistent between both figures.
Have we really came to the point that hasbro has to cut in questionable quality springs in toys to save money?
I just got my power core optimus and his one leg (mirage) is shorter than his other leg (streaker) by a full 1/4 inch
Did you leave the rear end of Mirage flipped down? You have to transform that mold different ways to obtain different lengths.
Yup nomatter what i do... he doesn't stand straight...
Isn't this 1/4 inch move that isn't in the instructions.
Have you watched any video reviews of this mold?
it could be that fact sunstreaker should be an arm but i don't like him as an arm
I have it LEGS: sunstreaker and mirage, and ARMS: prowl and ironhide
Was more thinking about the videos for the Stunticons like those for Dragstrip and Breakdown the first uses of these molds. Like those from Optibotimus. Personally i think you made a similar mistake that he made in his Omega Prime video
