    Yeah it is telling that they included the tiny mini Optimus with the Ark... and we DO need a similar mini Megatron for the "Then proceed on your way to oblivion" scene, and what else that would come with?
    I am just curious if they make the Nemesis turn into a new version of Trypticon, or will be more humanoid.

    Btw the minifigures indeed are up to scale compared to Unicron. :D

    I’d need an assist from @Agent 539 to get one and do a “what’s in the box” disassembly so I’d know what pieces or sub-assemblies to get :D :D :D . Then I’d probably need to create the same number of false identities to request each piece, you know, so it wouldn’t look suspicious that one person was requesting all of them. If it was 1980, I could see something like this working. In 2021, probably not so much.

    I think you need to read his posts again. You seem to have missed the joke.

    @Sinestro00 (the one who made the joke) wasn’t the one who posted about having the damaged face part. No need to feel like your advice wasn’t helpful to the person who needed it.

    Radar was actually mailing a jeep piece by piece back to his home in Ottumwa, Iowa. Classic episode from the first season "Dear Dad".

    Which is why this:
    Is a good follow-up. Perhaps only one upped by saying "MP Hound" instead.

    If you ask, the worst they can do is say, "no". Seems worth the effort.
    Not like they will send a team to your house to take back the figure.

    I applied the full maw reprolabels set yesterday and it was well worth the cost and the effort. I really improves the alt mode and I highly recommend it for anyone on the bubble.

    Probably would take me two weeks to pull Unicron apart and keep track of all the pieces.

    Not gonna lie, I considered writing Masterpiece Hound, but then I remembered all the QC trouble that toy suffered and I didn't feel confident in suggesting I built one of those myself - even in an imaginary scenario.

    Both of my faceplates have cracks forming in the tabs, sent a message to Ebgames and they said they'd contact Hasbro. How many people got an entire Unicron lol

    If In the event Hasbro is unable to provide you a spare part, and no one has sold the extra piece to you, let me know. I don’t mind helping another tfw2005 member, the blemish wouldn’t bother me as much, and If you wanted to just trade pieces/pay for the shipping, I’d be ok with that. though I’d recommend contacting hasbro first to see if they can replace your piece (or whatever retailer you purchased from)

    Currently I’m in the process of moving so I’d have to wait to trade until after I move this month.

    I'm having the same issue with one of my faceplates.
    Do you think Hasbro might offer any replacement parts? I doubt it. Especially in my case.
    I've had my copy since the end of March.

    As @lilcarus said upthread, Hasbro does offer replacement parts, for some things at least. On his advice, I called Hasbro about an issue with my faceplate in late June/early July (for a Unicron I received in late March/early April), and after a few pleasant exchanges, I had a new faceplate in my hands by the end of July. :) 

    Give it a shot! :thumb
