I hear you about the complaints. I"m fed up with all the negativity. Either don't buy this stuff because as others claim, "they should have done this or that" or "I can't believe this". Or make your own stuff. V2 is more solid than V1. They fixed the ratchets and tolerances. I purchased two, one for each mode and transforming him was a blast. Check out NY they have him for $180 shipped.
