    Guess I’ll find out. I probably will transform it just to see what else might be troubled.

    I have only transformed mine once and that was to robot mode. I have the same crack but less noticeable. and a second crack was found on the back of the crotch that was hidden by the back skirt. I would go with FH they seem to be good about this. my copy is an action master now and I think if you leave him in robot or vehicle mode he should be good.

    I do not have it yet, but based on Peugh's review, he had to buy some for it. So, no.

    Hmm, earlier today I put down a BBTS pre-order assuming it was for the fixed version but coming here it sounds like it might not be. This is my first 3rd Party figure I've ordered, is it advisable to keep this pre-order if it isn't guaranteed to not be the broken version?

    FH has their own website if you reaaaally want it fastest. But yeah, any Chinese retailer will be faster than any western retailer.

    Do we have any idea what the shipping to the states would run if you buy direct from FH? Trying to weigh whether getting it faster and saving whatever amount trumps the protection you get from buying from one of the good domestic retailers like TCP.

    Fedex is the only option their site gives me (to Texas) and that runs for $42, making the total around $225.

    I think I’d rather wait for TCP to get it. As much as the waiting sucks.

    I was literally about to post that they messaged me a few minutes ago as well stating they are about to ship my parts out and asked if I had found any other parts with issues before they ship. So it sounds like it’s just around the corner folks!!

    The fact that they’ve asked us to check if there’s new problems before they ship out replacement parts rather than just sending them and they turn up randomly is really great imo. At least we know that it’s soon.

    *EDIT* two out of the three I own has a crack on the combined crotch, so I asked them if the third one starts to crack, will I be able to get a crotch part in the future and they said that they will send me a third super crotch just in case. That’s so cool, I love this company. I’m not even mad about these faults anymore because they’ve gone far and beyond to make it right.
