    Wow I had to scroll way back to find this fix. Just preparing for his imminent arrival. I'll probably end up leaving out the screw covers and just paint the scew heads red. Just worried about damaging the initial screw cover on the body.

    When I did it, I only drilled halfway into the screw covers and then pulled them out. That way I could flip them around and cover the screw holes again.

    I wouldn't buy it but I'd like to see it. I think that'd look pretty cool.

    Or at least reissue Magna. There are either a whole lot of Magna's out there with no Inventa to go with them, or they made way more Inventas- because he's easy to find and Magna is nowhere to be found.

    I also got a replacement neck from MMC and can't remember if I've used it yet or am using the current one. Either way, I found using insulation tape worked. Someone in this thread recommended it.

    The issue with mine was the 2 pieces that form the base of the neck didn't meet together tight enough to create suitable friction around the next neck joint. Taping a single layer of tape around the hole and pin of the first joint and neck base gave enough friction. Punch a hole in the first joint obviously so the peg in the base could go through. Tightened it up and the neck holds really well.

    I previously used nail polish and also tried some thick napkin but neither were strong enough to support the neck.

    I ordered Inventa from BBTS on Thursday and had it shipped priority mail.. They just processed it today. Lol typical. But they're the only ones that have it in stock. Oh well. On the hunt for magna now.

    Inventa finally came in. His neck wasnt as loose as I thought it be but not as tight as I wanted. I saturated the joints with 20200703_122907_001.jpg the "liquid joint fix" without disassembling the whole neck. Hopefully it will tighten indefinitely.

    Hear hear! Count me in for that! Been thinking of getting my hands on this set since there's probably a long time till we get an MP one. Just so I can actually have a Sky Lynx, haha.

    Only complaint I have about it, while very minor, I gotta mention. Cause, c'mon. Where's Sky Lynx going with that grill of his?

    I personally would have gone with something more akin to the original cartoon, with an extra set for a more IDW look.

    In case anyone is interested, I have my MMC Magna/Inventa set on sale here. And the neck, while it could be tighter, definitely holds his head up properly!

    I am looking for one but at slightly lower price point and am based in the UK. If there's anyone selling one in UK, please give me a shout.

    Thanks

    Only place I've ever seen it is eBay, and it is never really any cheaper, been hoping planet steel express would do a reissue as they had it cheap but when I contacted them last year they said there was no plans to get more made.

    Yeah, I saw one go for £230 on ebay so looking for around that price I guess. Alternatively buy a Inventa from BBTS and hold out got a Magna reissue....

    Yeah, unfortunately international shipping costs is a non-starter normally, but now it's even worse. :(
