    Yep. Just checked mine, and although it's not as bad as some here, there is definitely the beginnings of a crack.

    Oh Jesus! Wow- thank you everybody for the responses. What a poorly designed piece. You can clearly see in that picture, that it’s not even shaped to the contour that it’s forced up against And it’s such thin flimsy brittle plastic all around.

    I’m actually considering selling these four, rather than finish the set, but I’m still on the fence. With the materials they used, the wait is definitely not worth it. Not if they’re breaking while they sit on the shelves waiting for the last member to arrive

    Meanwhile, they’ve re-issued Gravity Builder with the golden gun, in an obvious attempt to help finish this:/

    I’m worried about how brittle Hot Spot is going to be…….

    To be fair, I've had from the company, the following:
    Warbotron Bruticus
    GT Devastator
    TFM Menasor
    GT Defensor
    GT IDW Optimus Prime
    GT T-Beast Sideswipe

    And this is the first breakage I've encountered. As far as I'm concerned, this company is top draw for quality.

    U should also try GT-10 BW T-Beast Optimus Primal and GT-3 Megatron IDW. These 2 are really good as well.

    I know they're good figures, but Optimus Primal I just don't care about as a character, and that version of Megatron I was never a fan of either, tbh.

    I regret not picking up J4zz, though.

    To be fair only those blessed by the spirit of Solus Prime may receive J4zz.

    Yeah, I forgot to mention G4 J4zz, having it and very happy too.
    I don't care the character Optimus Primal as well, but I picked up the GT10 because it's a great figure. :D

    Oh, me too, but this whole set has gone sideways for me:/ I didn’t like the thin panels on Katana, but Bulance just feels cheap. And the details and paint, too- particularly details on the underside. And this strange “sparkly” white plastic……. Streetwise was pretty awesome, but they’ve consistently dropped in awesomeness.lol

    Still, I’ve religiously bought every one that this set of companies has made since Warbotron…….

    If the delays are caused by funding issues I wonder if GT would allow us to crowd-fund Foo-Fighter.

    Probably just a site wanting to rack up deposit money.

    GT should open up a crowd-fund for Foo-Fighter.

    I cannot remember who said it. Someone on this board mentioned GT was close to 6 months from color photos to release, so if the color test shot is the recent light blue that puts this at November? Maybe?

    It will drop one day, maybe tomorrow, maybe next year lol... It seems that GT, Gcreation and other 3p companies are struggling hard to survive.

    I don't know I guess they're making sure the qc meets their expectations.
