    Any way to loosen the hip ratchets in supermode? For forward and backward movement. For spread, I found the screw(s) that adjusts that, but it seems the screw(s) and parts responsible for forward and back are buried beneath covering plates.

    Also, is the current roughly $235 USD offering from Show.Z store right now the 2nd or 1st run of the figure.

    Oops. Messaged on Facebook for a replacement but I'm not too pressed about this personally. 20210618_141051_001.jpg

    Tried out that peg hole exactly once, yeah it's too tight and I just gave up after very slowly wiggling it out.

    I honestly hadn't had any issues with it after quite a bit of play. Little squeaky sure but nothing I thought would shear. Guess leaving it in base mode for over a day got it vacuum sealed or something?

    So according to my tracking from ShowZ, this guy has been intercepted in the country of origin and the export is cancelled. No further explanation is given.

    I've already contacted David from ShowZ, but has anyone run into a similar issue in the past? Just to know what to expect.

    I swear this figure is haunted.

    Customs most likely rejected your package. It'll be returned to seller who will have to send it out again.

    Me too. I got an email from TCP saying “item in stock in two days”... two weeks ago. I’m refreshing my mail like crazy every day. I wonder what happened there. I almost never preordered stuff before the current PO hysteria so I’m not sure if this is normal or not.

    In light of the fact that nobody else is complaining about this, I’m guessing it’s common.

    Just want to give a shout-out to Fans Hobby on this. I was one of the ones who bought a v1, and FH basically had to send me almost an entirely new core figure (except for the right leg, which is still original). Super fast shipping, great communication. I don't ever remember having such great customer service from a 3p before.

    Hey guys, so I messaged FansToys about getting my V1 replacement parts, and they messaged back on the 1st saying it'd be shipped that week, but I haven't heard anything since. Did you all get an email from them saying they shipped it or did your replacement parts just appear? Should I just message them again in case my request got lost in the list or just be patient?
