    Eddie is super awesome and such a dope person in general. He always takes the time to chat it up even when he is extremely busy. Not to mention he will go the extra mile if needed. Now imagine if he had use of his second arm...o_O

    He’s big, and he’s hungry... for some attention. He’s like a oversized puppy.

    Ebay:
    I agree about the price being steep. But on the flip side, I can’t imagine Hasbro releasing another, after the titans return version. You can wait until Black Friday perhaps but I went ahead and ordered him myself(I sold a lot via eBay recently). I’m probably a sucker for doing that, but I think with CHUG picking up steam again there is a faint chance this may go through its stock.

    Yeah, although I wonder what future Titans will be. The last obvious one is Scorponok who will likely be next year, but what's left after that? Maybe the planet bots, Tidal Wave, but Skylynx as a properly massive Titan would rock.

    That said, the wing alignment being off doesn't concern me as much as the bird component's floppy neck. How widespread is the issue?

    Blah! Super bummed. Got my Inventa in today, and when I'm inspecting it....it's missing the forward slide lock! Is it supposed to be hidden away? Is this something I should contact MMC about, or BBTS and get an exchange?

    What's the forward slide lock?

    As for who to contact; try BBTS first, thought I think they were not doing part exchanges/fixes for MMC. If they refuse contact MMC. PM LAzyAza for the proper contact info, I'm sure he'd be glad to help out, if you don't already have it.

    There's two locking pieces on Inventa. The one on the rear near the thrusters, and the one in the middle. The middle locking tab is what I'm missing on my Inventa. Unless it's soething you gotta transform, it doesn't seem to be on my figure. I tried looking in the clamshell and around the area I opened him up and nothing. Thanks, I'll try out bbts. I'll just ask them to exchange the whole figure if possible.

    That looks way better than the stock color. I've been wanting to paint the faces on mine, but I've been worried about screwing them up. If you're willing to share your process/already have shared it in another thread, I'd be interested in learning about it. If not, no worries. In any case, nice work!

    Can you take a picture so I can compare to mine? I don't think it needs to be transformed, but the visual will tell me what I need. If not, no big deal.

    Hope it all works out for you.

    Edit: It doesn't need to be transformed for that locking piece to be there, if you don't have it than it was an assembly error. Also take pictures for BBTS to help them see more clearly what you are talking about, sometimes they require that.

    Yep, it' missing. Assembly error. Sorry that you had to be the first for this. He really is a great piece and I hope this doesn't put you off him. I hope this gets sorted quick so you can enjoy him like many of us have.

    Sorry I couldn't be more help.

    No worries! I'm just glad that I've got it figured. I've contacted BBTS to see what they say.

    So my Magna shipped today from TCP, and I have no need for him anymore. If anyone is interested in him for $110 shipped in the U.S once he arrives, give me a hollar.

    Damn. I might just opt for some 1/6 scale masterpiece figures instead, as I don't actually own any still.
