    Well, tried fixing my tail piece, ended up breaking. Time to wait for oh my primus to get me a replacement part. Still haven't tried transforming the thing, the thought of the foot breaking off scares me. Maybe if I get a replacement tail piece I'll feel a little more confident in transforming it.

    So it seems that almost a MONTH after I reported the problem, IT-02 has finally provided ShowZ with the right part to fix my Dinobot. Should be here in the next few days.

    Also does anyone know a good paint to match Dinobot's face? I was farting on with one of the replacements and scratched some off.

    I heard they are making a second run with the feet already broken in the box.

    Last I heard from ShowZ is that they finally received some replacement pieces from IT over this past weekend and will start sending them out this week to customers who contacted them with issues.

    Your custom work is amazing! congrats :) 

    Side note, does anyone else have difficulty with keeping the faux head panel in place as a stomach when in dino mode? With force, i can get mine in, but it just slides right back out. Looking at how that faux head panel flexes as i push it into place, it looks like if i sand it down on the edges a tad then it will fit into place ok.
    any ideas anyone? 20190912_143234.jpg

    You have it transformed wrong. The faux eyes should be covered up.

    thank you so much! I've been messing around with it for a few hours trying to figure out what was wrong.
    now if i can just figure out how to fix the chest gap in robot mode (just like everyone else is having problems with) i will be good to go :)

    Where would the cheapest and most reliable place to get an NB Dinobot be?

    I’ve created a thread in the radicons section that details the whole process of my Dinobot mod and repaint so if you’re interested in seeing the stages of work or all the pics of the finished article then check it out.

    ShowZ came through with a new tail. This one is flawless.

    Mine showed up yesterday too, also flawless. Crazy how much of a difference one pin slightly out of alignment can make.

    As a lot of people have posted about it but there was pin slightly out of place that caused a spot to not move right and end up breaking.

    Mine came in a couple of weeks ago, but after initial check, I only had time to complete his transformation to dinomode this weekend.
    Happy to report, that done slowly, and cautiously… he is completely transformed into Raptor, with (luckily) NO breakages!
    Tho I could only get his bot hips to sit inside his abdomen at a slight angle, he did tab together fully.

    I have NO desires to transform him BACK to bot, as this is #2 for me, and he will live on my shelf in dinomode.
    But for $100 shipped, I could;t be happier!!!

    Does anyone know if IT-02 has started its second run? I still want this guy to fiddle with, preferably in the "not brittle" variety. Not sure what identifies it as second run (additional feet are shown in some listings)
