    Was really busy and finally got around to playing around with Big Convoy.

    1. My elbows were reversed and thus had one arm longer than the other. Swapped with no issues.
    2. Hips seemed to click ok, but I'm not going to shave or go crazy about it.
    3. Feet seem tight enough

    However my issue was right out of the box, the "C" joint covering the ball joint on the section of the mammoth head cracked!

    Anyone know the best way to fix this? Super glue and pray? I've seen videos fixing the peg, but not this.

    I would try to return it. There is really now way to fix that and have it hold like it should.

    ugh, rarely had this happen. Only 2 with Hastak stuff over the decades and once with 3rd party so I usually chuck the boxes as soon as I open them. let me see if I can return it to Amazon Japan after all this time....

    Even though it\'s a real pain to transform, and it\'s a shellformer (with too much money in bot mode), I love this figure.  I\'ve got most of the repaints, excluding the recent anime-coloured version.

    That is a lot of blue coloring for the packaging.

    That's gorgeous. I think I may jump on this. I love the mold and the colors.
