    Even with the QC issues the waiting sucks.

    These amazing pictures aren't helping matters either.

    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.

    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 :(

    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.

    Fans Hobby replied saying they would send:
    A new upper half (without combined mode area)
    New crotch area
    A pair of new hands

    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.
