    Finally unboxed mine, noticed some crack in the chest region, but the cracks doesn't seems to look that bad yet. I haven't spot any other major issues on my copy yet.
    Other than the small cracks, the figure looks so amazing!!! Best birthday gift for myself so far!!!

    So far I’ve checked every original problem area, and not only do the joints FEEL much better in terms of movement and stress, but I can’t report a single crack.

    They also sent a swap out combined mode crotch area (mine is fine after I glued the cracked area) so it’ll be on standby for the future.

    I’m super happy and excited to see everyone else get their parts soon, let’s blow this thread up with excitement and enjoyment again!

    Man the sudden change in the mood of this thread since the replacement parts are in is so refreshing. Now just the insufferable wait of my 2nd batch order from Showz.

    Just FYI on the bbts release. I had a crack on the chest hinge and that was it. But once I transformed and set in robot mode the cracks on the chest window folds developed cracks. So keep that in mind

    So besides on top of the shoulders, are there any other usable minicon ports in combined mode?

    Quick question but did anyone else notice that you can slide the Super Mode knee pads up? It's kinda awkward to do but it appears to be totally intentional, I've had this for so long but only just now noticed this lmao:

    It seems fun. This review almost convinced me to get one. But I think I'll wait for the "no replacement parts needed" version.

    I only noticed this after installing my replacement parts! Very neat detail though that I’m absolutely using going forward.

    It's definitely intentional. I noticed it on accident when I first got mine then looked at FH's promo pics and noticed they had been slid up.
    I don't know if the instructioned it or not since I never used them. But yeah :)

    They said shipping should begin in May. So we'll probably see it around mid-May to early-June.

    Got a surprise knock from Fedex earlier! Other than a stripped screw (on the LEG of all places) everything is on and there are zero cracks after a robot to truck to super mode transformation!
    Also, not sure if it's just mine, but Sparkplug seems to fit into the shoulder ports A LOT more firmly than on the last ones.

    I will buy any and all repaints they do of this figure in the future. It's fantastic. And I so can't wait for Megatron
