    Question for those of you who got theirs from ShowZ
    Did any of you get the replacement parts for the target master?

    I opened mine up and there were no parts, but in haven't messed with the target master yet.

    Got mine yesterday, the replacement part is inside the plastic bag that protects the box, I looked everywhere for the part and was giving up till I saw it "inside" the plastic back, mine was at the bottom, hope you find yours :)

    I did. It was taped, on the outside clear plastic bag that Fans Toys wraps their boxes in. I think....?

    Not from ShowZ, but my 2nd batch release from BBB that I received last week or the week before had the new parts already installed, no seperate bag with loose parts. I’d have a mess with the target master and see if it pegs into the hand.

    Yeah, XTB is on a whole other level of bad QC. Dare I bring up Monolith?

    At last! My copy has arrived. Lookwise he is a huge upgrade over old Andras. Unfortunately everything feels a bit less secure. Things want to pop out as soon as I touch him. Anyhow, I'm glad that I have completed this shelf.

    Don't forget to tab his lower legs together correctly, it's easily overlooked.

    I finally got mine in as well from Showz.. but his blue gun wasn't included in the (sealed) packaging.
    The replacement parts for Fracas were nowhere to be found as well.
    I already contacted Showz.. Le sigh..

    It is a very nice looking unit though.

    Check the outer bag that was around the Fanstoys box; the replacement parts for mine were taped to that.

    If you are receiving from batch two, check to see if they are already installed. Someone else mentioned that theirs was fixed in the box since they received theirs from the latest batch

    I'll definitely have to check mine. I just received it a few days ago from Show Z and did not see the replacement part in the packaging or shipping box. It might be already installed like you mentioned.

    Hmm could be, I did get the second batch, I'm lessed fussed about the Targetmaster though because I usually leave them in robot mode anyway.

    I did and there was nothing to be found but I'm likely having one from the 2nd batch (see above)

    If anybody is still looking for an Inquisitor I have one for sale. It isn't yet in my sale thread, but I'll be posting him there soon. He's still in the sealed box and has the replacement targetmaster handles.

    Just received mine from ShowZ as well and it doesn't seem to have the extra part as well, so I guess they really are all installed in the newer batches. Still, with people commenting on fragility I won't risk using it.
    Regarding the figure itself, it does look amazing and articulate pretty well as far as FT figures go, with the only major articulatio missing are butterfly joints. Only complaint I have is how limited head movement is, and how you can't play around too much with the wings.

    Would a fellow fan mind summarizing what spare parts were for the targetmaster? Design flaw/easy break? I got my FT Scourge from bababobo last week, not sure what batch it is, and there were no spare parts.

    I am hoping it is like the later batch with the spare parts installed.

    EDIT: saw that the spare parts in posts above are the targetmaster gun handles. What was wrong with the original handles and how can I tell if they are new or old on mine?

    Yes, it's the target master handle, if your Scourge can firmly hold the Target Master then you are all set, the original one simple can't hold it, at all

    The old are short and don't fit the whole length of the foot when folded in plus they do not align in the hand to be held at all. The new are longer and take up the full length of hollow space in the foot with a shorter looking tab so that they fit

    Awesome thank you! In this case can confirm mine from bababobo came with the new handles already installed as they do take the length of the foot and Scourge easily holds the targetmaster.

    ShowZ kindly sourced me a replacement foot for the target master following the breakage of the handle mushroom.

    Easy replacement requiring the removal of the two leg screws and a small metal pin that could be slid then levered out gently with a spludger.

    Significantly less risky than levering a handle off of the world smallest plastic mushroom peg...
