    Mine has arrived and there is something very wrong with it. Did anyone have experience taking apart its leg? I feel like one panel were not attached properly, because of that it's impossible to plug in his foot and fully transform, or attach Stealthwing legs to it.

    One foot does not plug in propperly at mine, too. For me it seems, that the slot is to small, or the peg to thick. The other side works fine. Can't take pics at the moment - it's my deskbot at work..

    now look carefully at a leg where it doesn't plug: does it look like the blue side panel isn't attached all the way to leg? Also, you can compare one leg and another from inside, there is a small blue piece which I assume what clicks blue panel to rest of leg, and it's not same on left and right leg.

    I managed to transform it fully eventually, but I'm afraid Stealthwing pieces won't fit. And I want to fix this without replacing fig entirely.

    Just got him in today with Stealthwing from ShowZ. It took a while to combine him but I was able to do it without scratching the finish. He's little back heavy but looks very impressive when put together :)

    One of the upper thighs of my copy is unpainted (QC issue). Anyone recommend what brand of silver paint to use? something that'll match the rest of the silver-painted parts.

    I'm just thinking if its a QC issue with an unpainted part, wouldn't it be fair that the manufacturer also cover the shipment of replacement part?

    They have shipped some things free to me in the past but not always. I rather pay $6 then trying to “nail it” myself.

    I haven't transformed (alt-mode) mine yet. Does doing so risk the paint?

    I’ve transformed him twice with no issues so you should be fine.

    Just received from BBTS. This is such a beauty, glad to have this guy back in my hands except this time with a metallic paint job and weapons pack!

    All these pics make me wish they'd do a metallic THUNDER Manus so badly...

    I wish the gray weapons had gray that matched Striker Manus’ gray

    Also, caution;
    The axe that comes with metallic manus does stay attached on normal manus. The layer of paint makes metalic manus “thicker”, so the tolerances are adjusted for that thickness

    I just put a layer of tape on the surfaces that touch the manus arm and its fine now

    TBH, i put the metallic one back in the box and just have the weapons for regular manus. Metallic feels delicate to touch, and there are no other metallic cross dimension to display it with

    Are you making full use of all the foot joints to get it all tightly packed?

    Do u have regular manus and successfully transformed it without this issue?
