    The one I got was second hand, and the hips were as loose as hell.

    Replacement hips are a must IMHO.

    That's what I was thinking, which is why I want to figure out how I can get replacements without having to buy Gewalt. Would DX9 ship them out separately?

    Possibly, it's worth asking them. There's also bound to be some people who bought Gewalt, but have no interest in Chigurh and may be willing to part with the spare hips.

    Same here, love my Chigurh, but don't want Gewalt... does anyone have a better way of contacting them to get the replacement hip sections, or is it just through their website??

    Does anyone have both Chigurh and KFC's Ditka? Are they the same size?

    Did you ever get in contact with them? I think I found the right email address if you need it.

    I just picked this guy up from a board member. He's great. I like to flip his forearms around up top so the gaps don't show. I also like the leg configuration with the wheels on the back and the heel spurs folded up.

    It's hard to tell from the picture but Ditka is just a bit taller.

    Just got this guy from another board member, I had my eye on him for a while now but never wanted to pull the trigger in the $120 range. Got him for just under $100 and I am blown away with this figure. Every mode looks amazing, it's unmistakably Astrotrain, and the sheer heft and size he has really invokes what I think a triple-changer should. A big, bulky, hardhitting bot. He could use improvement some places but DX-9 really knocked this one out of the park.

    I have both displayed beside one another. Chigurh's is taller if you go by the top of their heads. Ditka is taller only because of his shoulders.

    Since it doesn't seem that we're getting a proper MP Astrotrain any time in the near future, I decided to cut up my DX9 Chigurh --- again! It's not perfect by any means, but I definitely see myself improving a lot in round 2 since the last time I worked on this guy. He's going back on the shelf for now, but he might be getting some more plastic surgery again next year!

    Dx9 used way too much greeble on this guy. Luckily, I paid $75 for mine and absolutely don't regret it.

    Really liked mine when he came in though he's sadly been neglected for a few months now. Just stands there looming over everyone around him on a small end table. He still gets a "damn he's big" whenever someone new shows up in the mail. Never noticed any hip probs with mine. Maybe it's because I can't get past those upper legs. I likes me some thick thighs damnit! How can you have calves bigger than your hams/quads? :lol  T'aint right ya'll!

    Just picked up the replacement hips. Is there a tutorial somewhere in this thread? I don't own Gewalt if instructions came with him.
