    Sorry to hear that you lost the lotto. What’s the missing trailer piece? The missile launcher/sword?

    As for the "missing" trailer piece, I'm pretty sure it only ever came with one. The open slot is where the shoulder launcher goes. The cap is removable because if you buy Divine Shooter, you can choose to have double shoulder launchers.

    Ah ok good to know. That still leaves the issues with the power master though plus not being able to hold the trailer together.

    By the by, does anyone else have their Ginrai’s front wheel catch on the fender/wheel well or something in vehicle mode? I’ve tried some sanding down, but it doesn’t quite work.

    Secondly, does anyone have a spare chassis/backpack for the divine suit? One of the clips broke on me. The remaining clip still holds pretty well, but I’d still like to have a backup.

    Divine shooter used as the armor for Thunder Manus works alright (since it’s mostly the same as the default armor that initially came with Thunder Manus, minus the feet). If you’re buying for the bot and vehicle mode, however, it’s crap.

    I just recently got this figure and I feel like I'm missing something when it comes to the vehicle mode. That trailer hitch is on a pivot and it's offset, so whenever I pull it across a surface with the cab, it shifts to the side. Is there a way to get that hitch to lock into position?

    I didn't see any mentioning of this in looking back over a few dozen pages. Did most people not care? It seems to me like a glaring oversite--the trailer goes immediately off-center once it's pulled by the cab. This is a serious disappointment.

    I think you just have to adjust for it when you pull it by the cab. Like a shopping cart with a janky wheel.
