    FansToys already replied to my inquiry about the broken beak. Their reply:

    10 USD shipped by regular airmail without tracking, my paypal is [redacted] and your address plz. it may take 10-12 weeks to get to you. thx.

    I sent the money and followed up with the requested info. I sure hope the right part arrives, it appears it needs to be the whole damn beak.

    That is the candid response. Congrats as you should be receiving your replacement parts! Now good luck with the replacements (hope for no pins or spring pins :p  ).

    Lol you read my mind. Hoping my $10 will get me a FansToys technician delivery to my house for on the spot custom repair. White glove service, please!

    On a serious note, I'm super thankful they are sending a replacement. Just hoping it is the correct part. Even if a nightmare to replace and install, it is certainly better than having a broken part with no options.

    Doesn’t Soar come with a smokey Dino head / beak? You could try installing that to see how it goes. Also I seem to remember the initial release had a part fitted backwards that had to be unpinned… did I imagine this? It wasn’t too hard to repair with some pin pushers.

    I'd recommend Paik4life's video, he has a few helpful hints including making sure the chest is completely open in robot mode as to not scratch the beak.

    Start with TFSource, but be prepared to have to go through FansToys.

    6 weeks after my request for the part it arrives. So thankful. Hopefully the swap will not be stressful.

    My new 2021 Soar copy had the same locked up knee joint issues. I could not get the left knee to move without disassembly in order to transform him to bird mode.

    Luckily I have 2 copies... and will never transform him back to bot mode... or at least not for a looooong time. So it seems the locked up knee issue is somewhat wide spread.
