    That's great.

    I'd shoot him a PM/email today to follow up. The sooner he gets it the sooner he'll respond.

    Guys, I copied the posts regarding Soar's head/neck here to the Soar thread in case any newer folks want to see it here. I think it would be helpful to continue this Soar issue convo here.

    Thanks to: @ChromeMagnus for organizing these posts and @Orion2703 and @ROXXOR for the examples/suggestions and @Deadpool1287 for bringing it up.

    I think I figured out my issue. I pulled the head off, which was not easy. And I have what looks like a massively misshapen ball peg:

    I'm going to contact Fans Toys about the peg and hopefully clear it up soon.

    On another note, is it common for those side pegs on the pteranodon head to not want to stay plugged into Swoop's head? (One of mine is fine, the other pops out if you breath on it.)

    It bothers me, for some strange reason, when I see the dinobots split up in groups of 2 and 3 in a display, but in doing so Snarl and Swoop are not together, and Grimlock, Slag and Sludge are not together. Instead it's always some odd combination.

    Yeah thats not good, hopefully FT can sort that for you

    The pegs on all 3 of mine are snug, not too tight but wont fall out on their own by any means.

    Yes I know, 3, 1 normal blue and one of each x version.

    Um. Shouldn't you get another red one to even it all out then? You could throw the whole universe off balance if you don't take care of that soon.

    What are the options for getting the replacement thigh pieces? Has dalianjj been able to help with that or are there other options? Thanks all!

    I'd suggest sending him a PM (with pics if possible) and see what he says. It can't hurt to just go ahead and reach out to him.

    Does the red version of Soar/Swoop come with a gold chrome beak? Im not referring to the X variant.

    Had a mini-heart attack just now. Soar's right arm was stuck with the bicep up inside of the shoulder and wouldn't slide down for the life of me. Thankfully, I was able to unscrew the shoulder ever so slightly to let it come down. Even then, he's still a fantastic figure with great heft with him. Just need Stomp and Grinder and I complete my set

    Just wondering.. there were some rumors of a KO version of FT-05 a while back.. but there seems to be no confirmation that there was a KO. Anyone know if there actually was a KO or there is a KO version?

    To date, none of FT's products have ever been KO'd.

    2 of the Maketoys headmaster 3P MPs have been KO'd.
    IIRC some 3P combiners have been KO'd (Warbotron Bruticus, a 3P Devy, a 3P G1 Predaking). They may have been KO'd and upscaled perhaps.

    A while back there were rumors of a KO FT Phoenix and FT Quietus. It turned out to be a hoax, most likely conjured up by FT haters.

    Compared to TT, they are pretty few and far between, aside from OS or miniature versions.
