    if i had to guess i will say the retailers will hold them hostage. then they will do that whole "we will ship them with future orders" bs again.
    instead of just eating the shipping to make things right.

    but that is just me looking at past actions. so what do i know...o_O

    I could be totally wrong, I'm just going off of what some retailers have said and what I've seen on this thread. As far as I'm aware, the parts won't cost anything. However, I fully understand paying a separate shipping cost is almost a given for most stores. Which if that's the case, is still better than what they did for the replacement Megatron legs. I guess we'll see tho.

    You still hope they are free by that time ?
    Megs his legs were also just free for a short time for those who had him on pre order, the rest just had to pay extra to get them.

    Not if you live in Europe, you'll pay $30+ shipping costs to get the smallest parts shipped (from US that is).

    I don't mind the hollow feet that much. After all, it's what I've known and loved for 35 years:

    Also, Newage have called him Hephaestus, who in mythology had bad feet anyway. From Wikipedia:

    Hephaestus is described in mythological sources as "lame" and "halting". He was depicted with curved feet, an impairment he had either from birth or as a result of his fall from Olympus. In vase paintings, Hephaestus is sometimes shown bent over his anvil, hard at work on a metal creation, and sometimes his feet are curved back-to-front. He walked with the aid of a stick.

    I couldn’t resist and got a second set from Terry.

    He currently has 4 full set orders left for a great price if anyone is needing it!

    Just got in my Set A. They are such fun little figures. Love the designs and I did not expect to like the horns as much as I do! Very excited to complete the coronation set.

    However, I accidentally broke one of Bonecrusher's feet/heel off its joint. A bad mistake on my part and now its a little annoying to get him into certain poses. Does anyone have any suggestions about how to request a replacement part? I ordered my set off and eBay seller so I can't go through my retailer.

    I really need my set A and C to show up. Set D arrived today. My gun isn't making sound :/ looks like I'll need to open another ticket with ShowZ.

    that really sucks but luckily you have like 3 options here.

    1 contact your seller and let them know the foot broke during transformation. Then tell them that you would like a replacement part. *If you want to tell them it was your fault that is on you. But just remember they might tell you no at that point and ask you to buy a new figure.

    2 Contact your seller and let them know the foot was broken right out of the box and that it must have been a factory error. *Don't even mention touching it or anything.

    3 Just bite the bullet and order a new fig. *Then you can tell yourself and your wife that it was all your fault.

    Do you really need them to show? Looks like you've got the full Devastator even without them:
