My second run has shipped directly from Fans Hobby this morning.
Good to hear, hopefully it won't be too long now
Any day now Showz.
Yes!!! My Second Run has also shipped from Fans Hobby. Very excited for this big boy
I got my shipping notice, I'm both really hyped and completely terrified.
It’ll be disappointing if there’s new issues with the second run, but then again all 3 of my repaired copies are now extremely solid so maybe I’m being paranoid.
One thing they badly need to consider for Megatron is better quality screws. I had to go and get replacements for a couple of them because they just stripped without much force at all. They’re so cheaply made.
My preorder from fanshobby has not shipped yet, hopefully soon
Also where is fans hobby shipping from? A warehouse in china or do they have a warehouse in the states?
I wonder if Fans Hobby is like Joy Toy, where they have a direct and close relationship with one factory. That allows them to make changes and corrections so fast.
They’re based in Hong Kong I believe, so just China. They don’t ship from the US.
How do you remove a stripped screw?
I had issues with the ones in the white plugs that hold the legs together. I had to actually clip the plastic away to give myself the grip with nail clippers to unscrew it. I’d attach a picture but I don’t want to deal with it again, but trust me it was a real pain. Doable, but with effort.
put clothes on it...
Use the rubber band trick.
There are some tools that actually drill into the head of the screw and use the new threading as grip to remove it
Seeing all of these shipped posts has me so excited to see everyone enjoy this figure soon.
After I installed my replacement parts, it’s bounced to one of my favorite purchases in the last two years.
Whatcha buy two years ago?
A private island.
MMC Bruticus felt like buying an island financially
It was the Mastermind Creations Bruticus set!
Jeff is that you? I won't tell Billary just blink if you're still alive
How are you liking that set? They look gorgeous but I can barely stretch this guy
Goddamn how many requiem blaster recolorsbwere there
I know it was unlikely from the start, but it would be pretty cool if they included Over-Run with Naval Commander as one of his guns.
Only time he was ever on screen was in the opening for Micron Legend.
Other than that he came with all (or maybe most of) the bendy Primes. One of them he was even fucking dead.
