    Still is a great toy. Remains my favorite mold of any character.

    No worries though, I kinda fixed it. Thankfully, only one side broke. So, all I had to do was to sand that pointed tip on the top of the ring down, reducing the friction in the arm. The blue panel locks on the side of the arm, so this doesn't loosen it at all. I just have to be more careful when moving it, otherwise, the ring will snap off completely at the other end.

    could i suggest trying to fix it with a drop of plastic cement (i.e., tamya or revell plastic glue)?

    Very intricate and clever. Is there any chance this will be sold as an upgrade kit? I'd consider getting a pair for the Cheetor which I keep in beast mode.

    Just opened Cheetor. The instructions make it seems that his beast mode can turn left to right, but mine doesn't want to. It appears the orange stalk his beast mode head connects to has a joint at its base to click left and right.
    Can someone please confirm if his head will indeed move left and right in beast mode? I'd like confirmation before I really exert pressure to try and move it.
    Thanks!

    The beast mode head can indeed turn left, right, up and down but that joint also collapses into itself for the transformation so you you may have to remove the head and pull the joint out first.

    Nice, I love how they look in beast mode...however from the side in robot mode they look a bit bulky. I good alternative solution for sure.

    Ye it's a superior beast mode leg but in bot mode the smaller feet and additional panel lines and hinges are a tad more intrusive than the original. I'd definitely get a pair just for a cheetah display though and paint them entirely yellow.

    Thanks! I was able to get it to work, but it required a lot of force with a small tool to pull that post out of his chest.

    Same. I used a small, rather dull knife to pry/lever the joint out because I didn't want to risk squishing anything by clamping too firmly with pliers. I'm sure it'll loosens up after a bit more use.

    Looks good in beast mode, but pretty jank as hell in robot mode. Plus, the beast mode leg still looks weird proportionately with it's super fat lower leg, I'm not sure the tradeoff is as much of an overall improvement as expected, but it's still really cool.

    I used pliers, it was a bit terrifying and certainly something you wouldn't expect to have to do. It does feel like the tolerance levels and expected care and attention MP owners need to have is skewing away from what you'd expect of toys. I had to loosen a screw to get MP Megatron's legs level(and thus avoid breaking him with undue force) and it's literally impossible to put his silencer on without scratching paint, that added to the clearance and paint issues found on Primal and Cheetor makes me feel like recent MPs are more fragile/less user friendly than ever. They look awesome but handle with care!

    Sooo...I figure this is the best place to ask. I'm looking for a spare stock robot head for my MP Cheetor. Is anybody selling one?
