    A $2 bottle of 91% rubbing alcohol and paper towels will take the battle damage off with no damage to the plastic

    the shoulder fix is terrifying but effective

    Well, that assembly variant's going to be obnoxious as hell to find. My closest Walmarts rarely see most figs to begin with.

    Picked up a wrong shoulder one in TX today. Made a quick video on how to fix them:

    Now release him without battle damage and a feet replacement is needed to give him his dancing shoes instead of hooves.

    Does make me curious about that rumored (or properly leaked at this point?) toy-deco version coming to Pulse, and whether or not that release will see all shoulders fixed.

    Honestly I'd like to wait for a possible future redeco with bluer movie/cartoon colors, no battle damage and guaranteed fixed shoulders, but who knows if or when that would happen.

    A the moment it looks like it might not happen. But then I'll just stay with Legends Galvatron. I love him. I'm definitely waiting for a better redeco.

    The battle damage is actually super easy to come off. I used a q-tip and rubbing alcohol and it comes off with absolutely no effort.

    I honestly think the pin forward look will be better looking if someone makes some fillers for the people who got the incorrectly assembled ones, since then there would be no hole, when even the correct one has that ugly rectangular hole in the front. Maybe someone can make a set with both, that way both ways will look pretty close and it won't matter which version you get.

    Is it possible to pop the pins out down where the bicep attaches to the elbow, so that the pin side can be separated entirely and the peg side can just lift up out of the hole without bending the plastic? Or is there a lot of complicated stuff going on at the elbow?

    So, likely you can achieve the same by just swapping the left and right shoulders, too?
    Makes me think the ones we seen so far were early factory copies.

    I don't understand what you mean, that would still require popping a bunch of pins/stress on the plastic. To pop the shoulder off from the body seems even riskier to me.

    I was thinking the same, lol. Canceled my Amazon preorder in favor of doing some store hunting. Not a big deal if I don't find one, since I can fall back on BBTS.

    Don’t put faith in it though. All my stores say rhinox is out of stock and I saw 10-12 today in 5-6 stores

    Use 087-16-6009. That’s the kingdom leader number. In my experience, with the exception of exclusives, Target doesn’t track individual figures per say, and you’ll have better luck with the class DCPI.
