Sure, I’ll look and get back to you in a little bit.
Yes I would absolutely recommend checking the grey plastic. I haven’t found anything else minus that one hinge on my copy but can’t be too careful.
I just checked my copy on both sections where it holds those grey ratchet hinges and have no cracks to report, that’s a huge bummer that yours does though since that’s a lot of plastic to replace..
Yeah it's basically the part where the core bot plugs into the legs... bleh..
So I looked at mine and I don’t have any of the signs of fracturing.
Thanks for checking.
Keep trying FH, they've been pretty responsive with me through Bookface messenger. I know BBTS has offered to let me send it back for a refund. So depending on how affected your figure is maybe see if you can send it back.
Just checked mine and I don't have any sign of crack at that spot. Could be worth sending FH another message about your issue.
I checked all the sections made of that plastic and the complete figure and have no other crack to report.
I messaged them about my issues with the core bot on FB messenger and they replied pretty quick. I'll bug them again after work.
And to update
they replied and let me know the part would be included and asked if there was anything else. I found a crack in the crotch and they said they would include that too. I’m not sure how they are making any money out of this figure but they sure are “buying” their customers faith.
I’ll happily buy Armada Megs when he is released.
I gotten mine during Jan and only recently unboxed and transform it. So far I only found crack on the hinge at the windshield and other than that, all are OK. Reported to FH via FB and they said will ship my replacement part in 7 to 10 working days
Any other parts that we should take a look?
I can't wait for Jetfire and Overload. Really like that FH retain those gimmick like missile firing and LED.
My word that's such a vibrant yellow, is that the Micron Legend release of prime?
Yes, Micron Legend aka Takara version
Nice! I can't wait for my second run copy to ship in
Got the figure. Tried to be extremely careful. Lower half of left arm snapped off. Left super mode arm/left normal mode leg snapped off. Right super mode arm/normal mode leg's twisting leg joint has a stray piece of plastic hindering it from fully rotating for super mode. I have no clue what to do.
Update: When trying to get that stray piece of plastic off the whole right arm completely snapped off. I have no clue what to freaking do.
I'd take all those photos to FansHobby's customer service people. That's just crazy. Has there been a single one without problems yet?
With this one I would just send the whole thing back to the seller if you can. Most of us have experienced fairly close to the same defects so looking at what’s happened with yours is in another league. And this isn’t one of those figures where you don’t have to bear down in places to transform it. Probably one of the most pleasant MP transformations I’ve enjoyed in a long time.
It’s unfortunate that this figure is suffering from defects because it’s genuinely a fine figure. A big chunky easy to convert bot. And I’m not really the target age for who were kids when Armada was on the air. But I can still appreciate it. Though I prefer the Armada comic over the show.
It’s curious about how much they’ve been eating cost on the backend by sending out replacement parts. Because shipping cost is added into that equation too.
But I’m still onboard with Megs and Jetfire if they do him. Because the combine gimmick is there for them to capitalize on.
I now have a tracking number for my replacement parts everyone!!
ETA says first week of May for delivery.
I haven’t gotten an email from FH but my informed delivery shows a tracking number with origination from HK with their name on it.
How were you communicating with them? If you don’t mind me asking. I know they asked for an email address but I’ve not seen anything yet, just that they would be shipping out in the next 7-10 days.
