Dx9 Menasor Upgrade Kit
If DX9 is no more, are they going to honor pre-orders for Capone? How does that work?
My understanding is the designers left, but the company still exists and is doing reissues and recolours for now.
Looks pretty cool.
Hip fix? What's wrong with DX9 Menasor's hips?
I checked the upgrade kit page and didn't see anything about a hip fix unless I'm missing something.
Also, in what media does does the car limbs sit in front of the legs? In the G1 toon and toy the sit on the back of the legs.
The only place I saw the cars in front was in this screenshot of the toon animation for the commercial advertisement of the G1 toy.
Also Dragstrip is upside down
so it comes with front adaptors... back leg fillers n springs for hips? all for the price of $22? ships outside of us?
edited.... sorry didnt read thru...legs flips over front..lol.. so with legs flipped to front... still able to do great poses?
In a majority of toys and media outside of G1 menasor has the cars on the front and it’s grown on a lot of people. Just an optional thing for those that prefer the look. Not everything needs to be g1 accurate no matter what.
The fix for the hips is new springs that are not so tight. The hip and ankle ratches ae so tight that people have been reporting breakage forming trying to from the ratches to move.
For this version of Menasor it looks awesome. I wouldn't do it for other versions, but adding the cars to the front puts this one over the top for me.
Now to actually pull the trigger on these. I trust the scale they and FT have done with the Stunticons more than XTB.
Ratchets are stupid tight, so tight that if you're not careful they'll break. Emgo broke his in his review of Capone.
Yes, I can confirm that, I also had one leg with a stupid hard ratchet, so being scared by EMgo's video I disassembled it and removed one of the springs (each hip has 2 super strong spings each)...I do not know if it would have broken, but just to be safe....now it's a little too lose but sill strong enough to stand with no issue
It’s finally here!! Thanks Bababobo.
Congrats, hope it is everything you want it to be.
Ok. However, I don't see hip fix or hip springs listed, unless I'm missing something.
Dx9 Menasor Upgrade Kit
Capone's box art looks like he's wearing black rubber gloves instead of robot hands.
Skimming thru 300 pages but i haven't saw anyone does this yet. I did an easy fix for my Menasor Tight Hip Rachets. Maybe i m just lucky & it worked for me. No taking apart of screws & rachets. Anyone tried using Silicone Oil? I put a single drop into each slit there. Wait a few moments & voila. Still tight but works as it should.
Thanks for sharing. This may come in handy.
Anyone recommend this menasor and know a good place to get them all?
C'mon DX9, where's our weird crayon red and neon sea blue Dead End (it's bad enough waiting for Fanstoys' regular one).
Well, I have finally run out of time on my Pile of Loot at BBTS and need to release what I've got before it's re-stocked. Be prepared for BBTS to finally get Dx9 Capone in stock within the next 7 days.
I swear Show.Z and the other sellers now offering pre-orders on Capone will get theirs first and likely beat my BBTS pre-order by 6 months.
Oh please god let it be true. I have Capone PO'd from BBTS and he's the only one I need. I have 7 limb bots and no one to connect them to lol.
