    They may have just run out... I know I saw some fairly recent posts where they got their hips replaced... I thought it was redesigned for the replacements...

    I emailed recently about hip replacement parts and a loose backpack. Response was factory doesn't have any spare pieces. Reading this thread someone said there would be a reissue of terminus so I asked whether that was true and if parts would become available. Waiting on response

    service from fanstoys has been good. They're providing me some replacement parts for other figures for cost of shipping. $10 usd

    I received my response.
    A reissue of Terminus this March/April is not true.

    I think the hips are a part of A. At least it is if the issue you're interested in are the hips.

    Yes, is the pack A the one that come's the body, I need that part.

    Is there any dissasembly guide that I can follow? I will open it and remove the cracked part, a friend will try to create that piece with a 3D printer. Because I think it will be near impossible to get an oficial replacement parts...

    Disassembly is not too hard on this guy basically the whole tank section needs to come open though. You'll have to take out the screws that hold the front and back half together, then once that's apart there's screws that hold the front and back sections of the hips together. Take pictures as you go so you know how everything goes back together correctly. Also I will have to look but I ordered several sets of the hip replacement parts abiut 8 months ago and I used a set for my own figure and sold some to people in need. I will see if I still have any left. Which side do you need left leg or right leg?

    Really hope this guy and Hydra will get a reissue at some point in the near future and both will come with updates that add strength to this guy's hips and Hydra's weak knees.

    For the existing problems they both have, they are sure going for a lot of money used.

    I already dissasembled it and it was easy, but I had to dissasemble all of it to remove the hip part. About the piece: looking the figure from the back, is the right leg. Thanks for the help :)

    hope you can find some extra sets. My terminus suffers from loose hips.

    Here is the update:

    After 3 months, I found the contact of factory manager by WeChat finally.
    He said they won't reissue the upgrade kit (shortly as there is not many demand while FT didn't reissue FT-20).

    Luckily, after 2 weeks, the manager said he found 1 spare set in factory and asked me if I buy it for $7.

    Why not? so I got this upgrade kit as below.

    It’s not too bad, once you know to disassemble it all.

    I tried to disassemble it just at the hip and crotch with no luck (damaged some plastic at the seams, trying to give it a pry after removing all screws). Got that “disassemble everything” tip from the manufacturers / emailed them (then shared that info here).

    its bullshit that so many of us have had to replace the hips though. I won’t even consider FTs Fortress Maximus or Combiners after owning Terminus. They dont know how to make a large figure that can properly carry its weight

    To be fair it was really their first outing at a large scale figure and it certainly wasn't released just yesterday. I'm certainly hoping they have adjusted things with their upcoming combiners and large scale figures going forward.

    At least I can swap hip joints. But I sure don't like it today.
