    Had some time to myself today and decided to finally open up Iceman. Per most FT figures, he's real nice. Not having regular functioning waist twist is annoying but he's still pretty rad none the less.

    It will be a tight squeeze trying to get 5 of these guys into a Detolf, especially with the jumbo backpacks. But hey, if we can get 6 TW Constructicons into a Detolf, we can accomplish anything.

    Welp just opened up my Iceman from Kapow and it's already broken.

    Neither legs was fully transformed and one of the hip joints has completely sheared away.

    Time to fire off an email to Kapow about a replacement.

    Shame other than that figure feels really good

    Wow with the QC issues of this one and Sheridan, I feel I have been really lucky to experience neither. I just hope my luck keeps up, or FT steps up their game. These are quite a lot of breakages now.

    Mine too. One bit or another pops up, on the left side with the jet facing you. The right side's fine. I think it's got something to do with the way the legs compress.

    I hope they get that taken care of for you. Always infuriating to hear about QC issues right out of the box.

    Doesn’t look like you have Maverick’s shoulders transformed correctly. You need to get them higher and flip those red bits round to the back to connect with the red shoulder pieces.

    EDIT: I watched Emgos video and now I see where I have it wrong, so yeah, I'm an idiot.

    Which bits? Are you referring to these?

    I always kind of thought his shoulders were wonky. I didn't want to say to much, being afraid of pitchforks and torches and all.

    He's basically paying you to take him off his hands.

    Those look like sheet metal screws. I tried to go down this road (looking for replacement screws) best I saw someone found were these:

    Micro Pozi/Phillips Pan Thread Forming Screw For Plastic | Fastenright Ltd

    l
    et me know if u order some replacement screws that work, I would like to get some proper replacement screws too.
