Even with the QC issues the waiting sucks.
These amazing pictures aren't helping matters either.
Awesome photography as always
Just paid off my preorder @ A3U. I cant wait to kid glove the crap out of this!
Seems you also got the cracks.
Incredible shots of this thing! Loving what you’re doing with the lighting in both sets.
Everyone be careful. All of the fingers on the super robot hands are super fragile. Three broke on mine just now. I just wanted to transform it back to vehicle mode for the first time.
The core bot plastic is just trash.
Why must the figures of transformers characters I want be so cursed. First the God Fire Convoy rerelease and now this
Pics? I’d like to see what happened so I can be careful with mine, they’re super fiddly to get back into the legs going from super mode to others
alright well I got mine today.. It has the usual cracks on the cab and the one on the crotch, buuuuuut.. I'm still not upset that I bought it.
Right after I saw this I looked at my copy, each and every finger has cracks....sigh ok I think that’s it. I can’t keep trying to like this thing. Sending it back..
EDIT: All of the fingers have cracks near both secondary and tertiary joints, the cracks on the core robots hips have gotten much larger, and the right leg on the core robots extension area is cracking. Yeah I’m done with this thing.
Well crap, after hearing about all of these issues I cancelled my ShowZ preorder. Will just wait to see if the next round gets everything in order.
The showz one is the April release. Someone asked earlier and they said they're trying to get the next batch to avoid all of this.
So far mine is holding up well. I'm still amazed at how well the treads on the container are done with how freely they can roll
EDIT: Yeah about 3 of the super mode fingers on mine have thin cracks at the knuckles. Oof. They don't seem to be getting worse but i'm definitely gonna be mindful moving them
Every time I check this thread it seems like something new is cracking on this figure. I don’t think even MP Hound got this bad. Seems like Fans Hobby needs to really get the plastics corrected for this figure to be suitable for release. I’m kind of skeptical that they can get it corrected by an April production run. I was pretty interested in this but there’s no way anyone should be buying this figure now until it’s confirmed to be fixed somehow.
I just had a supermode finger fall off on me. I take it back. I want to KMS.
Lmao. Its okay. FH are renowned for their CS. Assuming they survive this, I bet they have your back.
I waited nineteen years, for a better Armada Prime! Nineteen years! FOR THIS!
Fans Hobby replied saying they would send:
A new upper half (without combined mode area)
New crotch area
A pair of new hands
And a whole new figure at this rate
I’ll never wish for a figure to come out sooner after this, and wish they’d delayed until March/April. I’m sure they would have caught this before they got shipped out but I still don’t know how they didn’t notice at all.
