    That's too bad. Though, now I'm glad I didn't get Black Power Baser. I'm still a Fans Hobby fan, though.

    I think this might be the first time I'm glad they decided to do the black God Bomber first. They can work out the kinks before they do the normal one.

    They already mass produced the normal colour. Unless you wait for version 2 improved one, you will be getting the exact crappy version like black one. That is why i cancelled my po. IMG_20191202_111312.jpg

    If you look carefully in the video, you can hear stuff rattling and something falling off.

    Maybe I do need to wait for V2 based on the latest info.

    Maybe the used lighter materials due to the combined mode. Still I want the bots as heavy as possible.

    Ah, so the bumper needs to be in the normal position before you put on the chest piece, then you actually have 4 locking points. Sun of the Empire mention in the comments of their video that they were thinking of doing a corrected video to show it can indeed lock when the bumper is set properly. But yeah, wonder if FH never changed the god armor chest during development between the v1 and v2 versions and didn't realize the bumper being out on the v2 version would cause issues.

    Also in the comments to the above video- Fans Hobby posits the broken tabs came from trying to put the chest piece on with the bumper out and have directed people anyone with broken tabs to their customer support. I guess we'll see if there are still reports of broken tabs when the bumper is in the normal position.

    Good on them on getting those videos out. And thanks for posting as I see they also have a transformation video for Power Baser as well. I may finally be able to get my top of the chest/backpack tabs to finally get aligned. I watched 10+ youtube videos when I first got him and never got it right on my Purple PB. Made me very sad.

    I beg to differ on the second clarification of yours regarding the broken tabs. The design is wrong on these tabs to have paper thin tab to ensure the normal strength from collector. It has nothing to do with the bumper down as it is broken during God armour robot transformation.

    FH must not upset the existing customers who has PO first version of God Armour, by releasing a V2 of God Armour that has stronger ratchet on thighs, much thicker tabs on shoulder and also stronger locking methods to secure the two gigantic side wings to attach on Baser's back.

    Oh, I was just repeating what they said in their comments, that that was their theory of why the tabs broke, hence my use of the word "posit". I apologize, I realize now its not in common parlance, I should have stuck with "theorize". I was in no way endorsing that's why the tabs broke, which is why I ended the paragraph with "we'll see".

    EDIT: And I realize now I was conflating two different comments- they made a comment about the broken tabs in the video about how to properly fit the chest piece to power baser, but that was just pointing to their other video about properly assembling god armor's torso in bot mode. I didn't realize they were talking about a whole separate issue.

    Not a problem. Their English is not easy to understand.

    Another youtube review:
    1. He has one of the the shoulder tabs broken.
    2. Left large wing not seems to be able to clip on securely on Power Baser backpack.
    3. Mis alignment of the folder tab (silver and purple) on front shin of God Armour. See picture below. Not sure is design error or.

    looking forward to the shattered glass version coming out. I guess in shattered glass land the godmasters would instead of being lifeless bodies controlled by humans, they'd be living robots who suck the lifeforce from humans?

    I'd ramp up the twist to 11, those aren't metal bodies, the bots were implanted into the meat and had metal grafted over the skin of the hosts. May as well go whole hog.
