    Wouldn't it be nice to have an insider tell us what is going on with Zeus and tell us how long it'll take until the second batch starts to ship...

    Nonetheless I've managed to keep my pre-order locked in 'til the second batch arrives to see if they've actually improved anything.

    Alright, so after about a week of fully handling, and transforming, my copy has held up! Its got some issues like the cannon arm, but usually if I have his cannon out, its going to be with his elbow bent so it doesn't bother me, other things are the feel, its not bad, but its not satisfying to touch, its got the heft, but not the strong plastic feel. The Leds are way two bright, hate that. But pretty much, I'm happy with it. Its definitely a gamble buying it. So I'm not going to deep dive into the second batch unless I have to.

    But after playing with the Studio Series one, after I bought that. C'mon, we all want a big Shockwave from DOTM, but this just ain't firing on all cylinders. The second batch will fix the problems, but not the quality of plastic or feel.

    You want a good Dotm Shockwave, just get the studio series, or wait

    The figure's hip joints seemed ok and then of course after posing him the left leg post broke away from the ball shaped piece at the top of the leg. The upgrade kit is on the way but I successfully super glued the post back on and it is holding fine. I have handled the figure since then and there are no other major problems. Most of the joints that are ratcheted are fine as is but the springs in the forward and back motion ratchets in the hip joints needed to be stretched out a little to make the clicks tighter. This also needed to be done for the outward ratchets of the hips. With these large figures most of the time if a ratchet joint feels loose just stretch the spring a little and you are good to go. See images below of what I am talking about and modify your figure at your own risk.

    Was it easy to get the leg apart to even begin this? The hips on mine are simply too floppy.

    When you have each leg hip joint unfolded as shown in the screen grab below just remove the screw that attaches the folding hip joint to the ball shaped piece at the top of the leg. If your figure is not broken then the post that the screw came out of is part of the ball looking piece at the top of the leg. Grab the leg near the ball and pull the post out of the hip joint. See the repair video also below for reference.

    Ben's review is up and it looks like he has received the second batch version:



    Some changes I've noticed:

    1. The inner part of the shoulder now supposedly has a new screw/ball bearing

    Most likely to keep the arm upright as we've seen before; it doesn't drop down once in Ben's review by the looks of it

    upload_2020-7-19_15-3-9.png

    2. The new parts have already been installed on the second batch.

    Going off the pictures, they've already installed the ball bearings too. The second batch has them consistently installed compared to the previous video showing off how to replace the parts

    From the front:

    3. The paint

    I mean yeah, just watch the review. He's much more purple than his first batch brethren. Again the paint was also mentioned in that previous Baidu forum and this just confirms it.
    It also seems like it is a sturdier figure all around :D

    I was staring way too close at that video to see if I could spot those changes (I didn't, so thankyou for pointing them out in stills). Definitely seems like Ben's is a V2, and it seems like it's quite sturdy - at least in terms of staying in one piece (less so in terms of staying upright, but that can be addressed).

    And that purple... I don't care if it's not accurate - it's glorious! Especially on the "ribs" of that metal chest piece.

    That 2nd batch version looks beautiful with the vibrant colors and looks much more stronger in the joints to hold a pose.

    Were the joints really that weak in the first batch? People were mostly addressing the faulty hips.

    I dont know. I ordered mines months ago. I was just happy to see it arrive from China. Had I have known I would have waited. My shockwave only stands by using his gun as a cane/crutch. I will never transform him.

    I have a first batch version and all the joints are fine.
    Most peoples issue (aside from the hips breaking) was that the cannon arm was too heavy so he couldn't rase it but mine is fine.
    Other than that the ankles are loosely pinned when they should be ratchets so it throws off the balance.
