    So, I've had my Soar standing in robot mode in the same pose for months (nearly a year or more, actually). I rarely touch my figures or transform them. The ankle breakage happened to me as well. I picked it up off of the shelf, sat it down on its back, then tried to place it back on the shelf in the same pose. I noticed the ankle was loose, and I tried to tighten it. I noticed that the screw felt stripped, so I decided to completely disassemble it. Both shafts were broken, the one that was loose was broken at the base, and the other holding it to the leg was broken in the middle.

    Oh wow. I hope my 3rd run doesn't end up like that! That's a real bummer, and your 2nd broken mp in a week, right?

    Reach out to FT for replacement ankle parts. Also I think someone on this thread was advertising replacement ankles for sale that they are making.

    Yeah, already sent that pm. Saw that COVID-19 stuff is hindering FT a good bit, so didn't figure that was much of an option.

    Thanks, though, buddy!

    Anyone have a tutorial or pics to help with replacing the ankle on Soar? I took out the obvious metal screws in the area, but the parts do not want to separate.

    Screenshot_20200608_185228_com.whatsapp.jpg Right, really late to the show here but hear me out please. I've had this guy for over two years now and I only just noticed his box clearly says iron dinobots instead of the usual iron dibots and I really have no idea what it means. Is it just a typo? Do all the Soars have this on their boxes or is it a rare case? I'm sorry if this has already been answered but I can't find anything on this topic really. Thanks in advance guys!

    Mine has the same.. apparently it happened with early releases of the product..they ended up sending stickers to cover it up later I think in the future.

    Thank you for the reply! Was kinda worried that I ended up with a fake of some sorts. Not that I care that much because I love this set on my shelf one way or the other but I'm glad to know that it's a genuine FT product. Thanks again for the help!

    If I remember correctly, the entire first run had the typo. I got mine from BBTS when it first came out and it arrived with the sticker applied over the typo.

    Does anyone know where I can buy the replacement metal knee clips? I reached out to dalainjj, who was very helpful, but his order never arrived (he refunded the price--he's been absolutely fantastic). I'm not interested in buying Grinder just to get the clips.
