    My copy is fine. I was expecting it to come in plane mode but he was a bot mode. Kind of scared to transform him. Over all looks great.

    Maybe you have the crotch plugged wrong. He only swivels left and right a little bit, but he definitely has rotation.

    it sucks that everyones copy is fucked up, I mean I guess its not just me having cursed luck, but I'd rather have the one bad one than everyone having theirs be fucked up. I haven't contacted anyone about getting it fixed, a bunch of stuff came up in my life that's kept me busy. IDK if its too late to contact TF-Direct now or what, I was kinda tempted to just try and glue it back together.

    i am not sure why they used the clear plastic, it's very hard to see that it's even clear. they could have gotten the same effect using a glossy black opaque plastic.

    I sent an email to BBTS asking if they heard anything about the figure arriving broken, or if they had any news on the status. They told me that pre-orders come in whenever they can, and some stores get in before others. They should be getting them in “soon”.

    I canceled my pre-order and got MPM 12 instead. As much as I love the design, I’m not willing to take the risk on getting a broken figure.

    I gave you a like for the pic, not for the bad QC.

    This release has been disappointing from the beginning.

    So I took delivery of mine today and I have a question... what's the trick to getting his shoulders in place for bomber mode? It seems like there should be a slider or angled joint which allows them to move into place, but there isn't either of those things. I did manage to do a complete transformation but I removed both armature screws to do it since I suspected I might have broken the cockpit otherwise.

    Two good ankles, though. Checked and double-checked, then checked again after transforming him back.

    I had a hell of a time with that step and the majority of videos on Youtube go from jet to bot mode. If I recall you have to get the armatures extended before angling and sliding the pieces under the cockpit and there will magically be clearance. Otherwise, it feels like the whole thing will snap.

    This isn't the exact video I used, but this guy shows angling them before sliding underneath.

    This guy and KumaStyle definitely made it look a lot easier than it felt to me. Though both of them also had a much easier time lining up the black panel behind his head with the panel from his collar, so maybe I'd done something wrong there beforehand that just made things difficult.

    The armatures on mine were TIGHT until I got it place once. Now they seem normal.

    I don't think Optimus died in either of those...
