    Yep, I am buying from a reputable supplier as well and will rely on their integrity and the fact that I tend to not drop my figures. The mail lady on the other hand...

    Counting the reports from the thread, there are about 4-5 different figures with this issue. The issue seems to be that the screw is way too small to properly support the joint longterm. This is weird considering this wasn't really an issue with their LS-06 Megatron. Already ordered him, gonna have to be really careful and probably won't transform him ever

    There are quite a few posts on Baidu now, all rumours or news don't know true or false. Someone said WJ boss and employees were released already, etc, etc.
    Based on the screenshots, at least the WJ products are removed from some of the stores.

    I just cancelled my preorder for him, I'll be waiting for reviews now. Some of us have been waiting damn near 10 years for a masterpiece level shockwave. Fix this and don't fuck it up BMB.

    What would be the best way to fix it? Get another, larger screw?

    Think they'll put out a replacement piece?

    The part looks like it could be swapped out, if need be

    Does anyone know what type of screw is being used in the hips? I might mod my copy once he arrives but knowing my luck both hips will be broken out of the box :lol

    I hope not. The BA/WJ Ironhide is one of my most anticipated figures.

    Wei Jiang =/= Black Apple, the designers =/= the factory (I think)
    perhaps someone else's gonna release it under their brand... like Zeus Toys :confused2
