Already is and it hasn't even fully released
I guess you missed the last few pages showing pictures of the legs which seem to snap off from the force of a mild breeze.
Well it looks like OhMyPrimus has removed this figure from their site. Going to have to send an email as I PO'd through them.
Oh I did, I'm just expecting even more crap
So the consensus is don't get this because it will break?
"Consensus" is that this is another Aoyi Jazz thread - with people most bitching about the figure being the ones who 1) don't have it yet 2) have no intention of getting it at all
I think it’s closer to ‘I’m still going to get this but will need to loosen some screws and be particularly careful with the legs because it seems very likely to break.’
The evidence is already pretty convincing and Show Z have even issued a warning on the order page about the legs.
Are those who feel negatively towards this figure now just bitching because ‘haters gotta hate‘ or responding to very real issues? You decide.
Choose your faction!
- People who aren't getting it anymore and don't care.
- People who aren't getting it and hating on it.
- People who are getting it but complaining about the issues.
- People who are getting it and understanding there's a possible fix for the issues.
- People who are getting it and complaning about those not getting it who are complaining about it.
I'd say I'll go with Option 3 or 4
Am I worry about the leg breaking issue? Yes, I am
Am I still getting it? Yes, I am as I can still request for replacement part which has been assured by my regular seller
Am I going to transform him? Yes, I am otherwise I won't know if the parts will break
For the price of what I'm paying, its 1/3 of the price like FT and there's after sales service, I'm fine to continue with my purchase. A few reviewers already mentioned that yes, the material is weak for the size of it, but careful handling can prevent it.
Ironically, when a FT product suffering breakage especially with a QC tag on it, not much complain and ppl will say "Hey, it's fine, FT has good qc and good for investment. Let's wait for the replacement part"
I cancelled my PO and put the money towards Zeta Pioneer. I still plan on getting this guy, just once it's either fixed or known to not be a major issue once loosened.
I'm wondering if the company will fix it like Dream Factory did with their ROTF Megatron who had the loose/ wobbly hips.
That's what I'm wondering as well, I'm not really expecting it but it would be a welcome suprise.
You have blatantly forgotten:
- People who aren't getting it anymore but DO care because they actually DID want it.
Another review I've seen and this one shows the actual ratchet mechanism in the part the legs attach to.
They are just haters
Sigh. I'll just see how goes once he arrives here; potentially screw around with it and see if I'm able to reinforce those hips one way or another if issues do occur. Zeus/BMB either steps up to the issue with a later batch or I'm putting my money towards FansToys Astrotrain..
Problem for them is that those that actually want a good product ask sellers who the “new” company is.
Huh... now that's not what I expected. With regards to the earlier question about whether the fix with the long bolt would retain the ratchet, the answer would be that it's "possible but unlikely". That fix would move the rotation to the bolt itself, unless you did it up tight enough to overcome that spring on the ratchet and use some thread-locker to hold it, and perhaps used a lock washer between the post and the hip ball. Keeping in mind, of course, that the ratchet mechanism is tight enough to cause that fracture visible on the mid-right of that panel as pictured.
Having now seen that... I'm 100% confidant a 3D print could replace the pictured panel with something that won't fracture (PETG or ABS would be fine, PLA likely fine, too). But maintaining the ratchet in the event that post breaks off would require a little more thorough investigation. Initial thoughts are that it would require removing the mounting post, drilling out the hip ball piece to at least that size, and modelling something which fits hard against the inside of the hip ball - but that could wind up just fracturing that instead.
Also digging the "WARNING: Please do not buy". Definitely sound advice, not because it can't be repaired but because that's the best way to send a message that this sort of crap won't fly. Won't blame anyone for not listening, though (hell, I'm still tempted).
