    about the cover on the arm, if you are having problem closing sit completely, try to rotate the fist so that the fingers will go into the arm first

    So glad they fixed this. The heel spurs are useless on the chrome version. I am using a spacer to have it sit even for the time being. GP said I am on the list for replacement parts. I contacted them via FB following your advice. Did they send you the replacement parts already or did they just put you on list like me?

    I was a FansToys loyalist for the longest time, but it looks as if GP has vastly overtaken them by this point, not to mention that they were always more generous with accessories and display options and that trend should only continue when their Grimlock finally comes out. I had four of the X Dibots but sold them all in my last decluttering phase, and re-buying those now would be both expensive and not super interesting, seriously thinking about giving Gigapower a shot though I have no clue where I'm gonna display the damn things.

    I have the red chrome version with a loose wing. Anyone else have this issue and is there a fix?

    Oh that is a one of the big issues I have with the chrome version. I don't want such a big beautiful piece to tumble off of my shelf because of a poorly designed heel spur.

    I own the red chrome version and my heels spurs are fine. Seems like issues are isolated and sporatic. My right wing is loose so when you slightly shake him the wing moves forwards and backwards like a loose gate door!

    Dudeā€¦

    Giga will come thru as promised.
    But I would go about your life and forget you asked, until it shows up.

    Their timeframe for replacement parts makes their release dates look like pee breaks at the coffee & beer symposium.

    Just recieved my order today! Lets just say Im not quite as thrilled now as I was this morning. Reached out to my provider, just waiting for a response. Hoping I can get it replaced, fixed, refunded, something. I went to place it back in the box and the tip broke off the rest of the way.

    @TFC201482 Yikes man! Sorry to hear/see that. If you don't mind who was your seller?? Besides taking forever for it to arrive now I'm worried bout the box. Hopefully you get taken care of.

    Everything else about the figure looked alright, just the wing tip was broken. I ordered from this seller in China who I came across on FB a while back, Terry. He's got his own site now. This is the second time I've ordered from him. No issues, the first time around. Hope to hear a response about it soon. Birthday's coming in a couple weeks, wonder if there's any chance of getting if handled before hand? Ha! Not gonna count on it.

    Edit: Heard back from Terry, he's going to work with me on replacing the broken wing and getting me a new box that's not mangled. Just gotta look at the figure in more detail tomorrow and make sure nothing else is wrong and then get back to him so he can reach out to GP. Really sucks to get bad products when your excited but just truly appreciative that I'm getting the assistance I need in making things right.

    Be sure to check out the left and right hip skirts. Mine came in with one broken and when I took it apart to inspect I realized the other was broken too.

    Thanks for the heads up! I'll make sure to look over the figure in detail once I get home from work. I'm checking the electronics to make sure they all work and I'll make sure to check for any other QC issues.
