    My knees could use an improvement. Is Mastermind shipping out knee fix kits for every unit they sold, or do we have to email them and request them?

    That's awesome. Thanks for confirming this works.

    Any noticeable drag when sliding the leg up and down?

    It was starting like they were but I'm not sure if that was an issue with translation so it'd be good to know for sure.

    I just heard back from them, it looks like they are sending it out to everyone:

    Yes, Ocular Max will provide a kit to fix the knee problem and we are sending it to all of our customers right after we have receive that. Hopefully the package will go out by mid next week.

    That video and picture tutorial calmed my fears. I placed a new pre order on BigBad.

    Sending with when it's shipped or if i can provide my receipt?

    if it's the latter I guess it'll be easier to put in an order at PSX

    I'm really on the fence after reading all this. I've had him on preorder for a while now.

    A little, but it seems to come from the knee assembly that rides the inner track, not the thigh itself.

    So, kinda late coming back around to this thread, but was it ever determined what the hinged blue panels on the back of this guy's lower legs were for, if anything? I recall some reviewers not even figuring out how to open them, and others who did, having no idea what they were for; has there been any new info on them?

    Got mine copy of Star convoy.

    I really like the figure so far.

    I'm not sure, but the red plastic feel like they are coating with matt finish? Or may be just mold surface? I'm not sure but either way it is looking better than bare plastic.

    The material is great as usual. the proportion is great, the articulation is great for his size. really like is ab-crunch, it look so dynamic and help a lot of posing. the neck also well articulated, a lot of look down which is benefit for his size.

    I think MMC really care for the figure at some point. there is a lot of screw covers for this guy. (Hands, thighs, feets) They really hide the screw well which make him look a bit better.

    Overall, I think he look good. well articulation. I'm glad I order him.

    In my opinion, they should paint the thighs silver.
    They didn't paint them because worry of paint scratching. But if it is well engineering or have better tolerance the thighs won't scratch. They just give up or for cut cost. Whatever.

    And yes, the knees lock mechanic on my copy is terrible. But I know it is easy fix.

    And the biceps rotation/articulation is really bad design. I's risk to damaging your figure it you don't careful to the biceps bending.
