    Awesome! I love my Tyrantron - such a fun figure and looks GREAT on a shelf.

    So this happened to my first release Tyrantron as I was transforming him back to bot mode. The legs were hard to extend, and when they finally did, the sudden jerk caused his leg to snap off. I've tried dissembling him to figure out what's the smallest component to perhaps get a replacement from MMC, but I can't figure it out. I'm at a total loss now..

    I'm starting to think the reissue won't ship until February now though BBTS/TFSource. :confused:

    I went to the same trouble for MakeToys when the spring-loaded calf panels on Galaxy Meteor exploded, and they ended up just sending me an entire, brand new leg. Just send the photos along to the appropriate party, let them work it out. You’ll probably end up getting an entire lower body, ha..

    Email MMC customer support or ping on FB to see if they can help identify what parts you might need, and then give or sell you replacement parts.

    griffith and Byrin are both in Singapore, so maybe they can just hop over and fix it for you. :p

    Thanks @NothingHead & @godotislate , I've emailed MMC and hopefully they come good, like they did previously for me when Hexatron's arm crumbled by itself (all fixed with little fuss). I had no idea MMC had 2 designers here in Singapore!

    Update: MMC customer service will ship a replacement part to me. I tried dissembling the crtoch piece to no avail so I really wonder what will come in the mail. Regardless, thanks for the advice over here. In the meantime, I'll just balance him on my shelf with the broken leg.

    @鋼鐵星PSX MMC出品,威震天+机器狗/Ravage。这两款合在一起,实际上依然不能算功德圆满。要我说,这模具接着添头雕、小改模,还能出个非常重要的角色。另外这双手,其实如果非要迁就变形的话,能否弄成插拔外加造型手配件呢?如此一来,整个人形状态几乎能成景品,实在是很棒的作品![​IMG][​IMG]

    I’m terrible at searching so I’ll ask and hopefully I can get pointed in the right direction. I have a copy of this and his nose has a slight paint chip so he has a black spot. Has anyone matched his face paint? Or should I talk to MMC about a replacement? It’s on the normal face.

    Call MMC. They'll take care of you, and in the long run it'll be easier with a longer wait time than frustrating and sooner.

    I’m kind of tempted to get a second. What are the psx exclusives for him? Grey mace, something more?

    So, what do people think the odds are that we'll ever get comic accurate fusion cannons for this figure? Both the regular one from the last few issues of MTMTE and/or the one from the Lost Light that unfolded into the med kit?

    Seeing the extra parts that come with Ravage kind of give me hope?
