Did you angle the belly flap?
Yeah. Think I may have a dud figure. The chest seems to fully click into place but when I try to connect the back panel, it forces the chest up and it unclips.
Looking at your pic, it appears that his abdominal panel wasn’t angled out.
The top of that panel has a tab that slots in to the area I’ve highlighted blue on your pic.
What @Shockwave81 said, like this:
@IwatchTV , the guys are right. You really have to make sure the ab piece is pulled forward a bit and lined up with the slot as shown above and push down on the hood/chest with some force. You'll worry you're going to break it for a sec, but it'll snap in there and lock tight as a drum. This was a common issue when the Datsuns were released nearly six years ago (can't believe it's been that long!) and a lot of us thought we had duds, but thanks to information shared on this board we got it figured out
You guys right. Un-boxed him again tonight. really pushed hard on the chest and SNAP, he seems just fine . Probably just me being afraid of breakage.
Feel so stupid .
I'm actually glad that you reminded me about this as my mp-17+ is being delivered today.
No harm no foul bud.
A very easy step to overlook, and now you’re good to go for MP-18+ and any other Datsun bros you want to pick up.
Just got this in, and he is pretty lackluster, since he isn't too different from regular Prowl.
He’s way better than I expected. Shiny and polished and the materials feel more sturdy
Joints are much tighter.
Does anyone know where I can order an extra gun for him? Custom made or not
People often sell them loose on Ebay.
Oh i thought i could get a custom
Could someone post a clear image of the box next to a few of the newer carbot boxes?
I want to see how off/faded it looks in comparison.
It sounds really stupid but the box's I've seen have put me off ordering this for the time being.. I like them all stored together consistently and in good condition.
I was thinking of waiting for a reissue that may correct this and the bay movie Autobot logo that Sam made me aware of...
However he looks so good from you guys pics I'm reconsidering waiting for something that might not happen for years.
I don't think that'll ever happen, to be honest. Despite the bay logo 17+ is pretty gorgeous, and tighter all round. Moving the moulds to the Vietnam factory seems to have been the right decision. Besides, the finish of the box matches the semi-gloss finish of the toy itself
Well found the gun. Back in business. Whew
Bay Logo? Have I missed something?
I may just have to go for it then @Sam .. if you think then fixing it isn’t likely then there’s no point waiting forever.
If they do fix the box later I’ll just try and buy it off someone who doesn’t keep them. Can’t wait to see what they do with
@IwatchTV i never noticed but the logo has angry eyes, Sam referenced it somewhere on here before. Now that I’ve seen it, it’s hard to unsee. It’s best you stay in blissful ignorance on the matter haha
And now I cant Un-see it .
