    Unfortunately I can't break or fix something I don't even have yet lol. I have 7 limb bots and no Capone. Why do you think the ankle keeps breaking? I've heard of the thigh breaking near the hip ratchet but not the ankle.

    Might be talking out of school here, but yeah, the ratchets are too tight. BUT GOOD NEWS! There's an easy way to make sure you never bust a ratchet on capone. If any of yours seem too tight, look for a small black plastic tab in a little channel in the joint. You can press on this with a tool or fingernail to compress the spring, allowing you to move the joint without having to fight it or stress the plastic.

    The plastic casing on one of my ankles likes to flex a little unless I do this to releave the pressure.

    Back cover for Atilla. In case you want to recreate that one scene.

    I heard that too. I picked up my Capone back in August and I have the sword and bug gun. The first day I got mines, the ankles snapped on Attila. I've been waiting on replacements from TFsource since then SMH



    Guillano is actually DX9 Dragstrip, they stopped the mafia theme with this figure. Weird TFsource didnt get theirs yet, figure was released end of November/December. I've had mines since then, ordered from Ebay. Found a listing on Aliexpress for $86 & free shipping if you don't want to wait. Cheaper than what TFsource selling him for 85.99US $ 14% OFF|【IN STOCK】Action Figure Toy Transformation DX9 Toys D17 Giuliano Dragstrip Atilla Combiner Robot Gift Children PVC ABS|Transformer/Robot| - AliExpress

    4 out of the 5 Stunticons finally came! I got the G2 Wildrider because that's all they had. So I pre-ordered the OG color and figured why not.

    But man, that color POPS. I may have to reconsider.

    Thanks. Is AliExpress reliable? I will probably cancel my order with TFSource. Now that I think about it - TFSource was 6 months behind all other stores with DX9 Gabriel.

    TerryTFSClub has Dragstrip for $84.98 with free shipping. In case you need another option.

    Edit: Oh yeah. They also have a 3% off sale going on until tomorrow I think. So that'd bring it down to $82.43.

    No problem. I've haven't any issues with Aliexpress but like anywhere else you want to check the feedback. This seller looks legit. I didn't even know they got Gabriel, I picked mines up from BBTS

    Did your G2 Henry have a super floppy ab crunch? Mine almost has no resistance and he is bowing at the slightest touch.

    To everyone:
    Has anyone here ever had to fix Henry's ab crunch? If so how the hell did you do it? I see a pin there but floor polish can't get in deep enough to work and i'm not sure how else I should go about tightening it up.

    I'm working my way through them. Henry's wheels don't roll free and his driver side headlight doesn't go up. I'll have more soon.

    I do like how they compare to MP-10B.

    Ended up getting Capone from Mandarake (they had one with a _slightly_ damaged box), the leg bots from TFSource and limb bots from ShowZStore. Those arrived today! 3D printed decepticon symbol and labels from @jimmyh (which are fantastic) and honestly I'm really damn happy with it! So playable. Makes me consider the G2 bots...

    Do: be mindful that the Menasor legs will be really tight at the hips. Often installed backwards (you can just rotate it to the correct position. You'll be able to tell if it seems like it won't extend outward correctly. Don't force it!). Silicone shock oil took the ratchet from scary to butter almost instantly (that stuff is a game changer)

    Watch videos for combine mode instructions. I like EmGos.

    Don't: force anything. If it seems tight, use a spudger, silicone oil, or check for little tabs in the ratchet you can press with a screwdriver to get it to move.

    Breakdown came with a ton of parts, doors and stuff. I imagine they need to be replaced?
