    Thanks for the responses. I got a pair of tweezers with a very flat back end that was able to slip in and managed to leverage it out. I was a little worried the tweezers would bend instead due to how thin they are, but it worked! The slider is bit chewed up, but still works fine so no issue there thankfully.

    To be honest, I have not yet transformed him into robot mode. It's just because of that arm incident that I'm afraid of it breaking when I transform him the first time.

    Heh...I read that as expensive at first...true on both counts.

    That crotch looks fine (still not used to discussing crotches so much). Its supposed to look swirly, they al look that way.

    You are one of the most neurotic collectors on this site, and I mean that in the most endearing way. :lol 

    Take the plunge, my man. If it's gonna break, which I highly doubt it will, you just avoiding it won't change that. And like I said, (unless I missed an update to that story) the arm incident sounds like typical paint-stuck joints. It didn't fall off, yeah? So it didn't break.

    You're truly missing out by not experiencing this guy.

    I guess that's motivation now. I guess it was me concerned about the Trex skin breaking than the crouch breaking. What is the cause for crouch breaking anyways?

    Transformed mine, looks great, have an idea for a little skit :) 

    I don't see any issues with my crotch. Erm, with my figures crotch, and I have been moving his legs a fair bit. Haven't tested my second yet as he was for Dino mode anyway!

    Transformed mine once, and he's been on my desk all week in robot mode. Heard about the crotch thing, and went to check mine, and well, fuck:

    So, I finally got mine, expectation about issues was very low. I opened the box, checked crotch and I am sure I will not transform him right now.

    What a junk. Should I expect replacement part like with 3rd parties, or someone from 3rd parties will make better crotch piece? Dinosaur mode loos very good, I am just very disappointed with all of issues this figure have. Seems like my post about breaking comes to bitter true.

    Yours looks fine you should enjoy your figure that you spent money on instead of referring to it as junk before you've even transformed it, just my thoughts.

    There is a crack on right side.

    I had plan to disassemble this part, but I am afraid to make it worse.

    Been waiting.
