    So I've just received VT-01 Bounty Hunter, and something seems wrong with the chest. The bottom of the abs are supposed to connect to the crotch, but when you do that, the chest can't plug. And if you push on the chest to plug it correctly, then the abs are straight instead of being at an angle to connect with the crotch.

    Does anyone know how to fix it?

    Are the hinges connected to the chest all the way down? is there a piece of pin sticking out preventing that from happening?

    I'll post a picture later to show the issue, but I can see it on the picture Hoptimus just posted. You can see the upper part of the chest isn't plugged in and the bottom is fine.

    Ok, here are the pictures.

    You can see that when the chest is tabbed in properly, the abs aren't and vice versa.

    The unique toys version seems fine.

    You can see the issue on these pictures too, the only way for it to look decent is to half tab both the abs and the chest, but it's impossible to tab both fully at the same time because of the angle and I've checked, it seems physically impossible with this version of the figure. If you push too hard, the connector between the two plastic parts is going to break.

    It's supposed to be chest out abs in. The chest is supposed to be protruding out. I think the chest tabbing in is for alt mode

    Ok but supposed to how exactly?

    The unique toys version doesn't seem to have this issue...

    edit: Or maybe it does? The pictures are confusing.

    Well, the official pictures of Peru Kill has the abs out chest in. So.......... i guess it's personal preference????

    It's really weird and confusing. He'd look perfect with both tabbed in.

    So, I bought 1 VT-01. And received 2. I’ve been waiting to buy one for years, and finally got 1… +1.

    I also found that I can put the second mask in his protruding chest this way, or flipped around and a bit more concealed inside his chest.

    I'll buy your second copy to help cover the cost of the first if you're considering on selling it!

    Awwww, I’m sorry, it’s taken! I grabbed it for under $80 (all in) off Amazon, and last I checked there were 2 from jer wu. It arrived ahead of its projected date since it went through air mail. The second copy had better fenders (first one had some slight clipping/plastic trimming issues), although the windshield was scratched and part of the face tab broke (still works fine). I wouldn’t feel right selling you that.

    I do notice that the VT version has the lambo badge in his chest while the UT IIRC does not.

    The dogs leave a bit to desired, in general, but IIRC BSL has better paint matching.
