sounds like you got unlucky
Sounds like yours was kicked around like a soccer ball.
That sucks man. Sorry that happened.
Those are plastic. Wouldn’t you want to utilize the magnet that’s in place inside the shoulder by putting on a metal painted one? I’m sure it will be coming soon.
Dude, you seem pretty content with a figure with the issues you just mentioned. Maybe not. In either case, it would really suck if mine arrived like that. Wonder if they sent you one that made the rounds with reviewers. Remember the tapping screwdriver reviewer?
Yeah I'm hoping it was just a fluke and the rest are good.
Thanks man. Yeah either customs or the post office must've just thrashed mine.
Haha I thought about that, I think I just got unlucky. No reason to be too upset, nothing I can do about it now. I'm just waiting for Showz yo reply and see what they can do for me.
I got mine and for me it is the ultimate Optimus Prime toy. It's huge, heavy, surprisingly stable, and it has a lot more detail than I expected. I like the chromed face, personally. Definitely worth the $330 I paid at TF-Direct.
That said, mine has several issues:
1. One of the smoke stacks has a broken connector
2. It's missing both of the flip-up communicator panels for the arms
3. One of the chrome gas tanks does not peg in securely (seems to have gotten worn during transportation)
TF-Direct says they are going to get replacements for the broken/missing parts from the manufacturer, but they say it may take a while. The gas tank thing doesn't bother me too much, and I could probably use clear nail polish to fix it.
Despite those problems, I still recommend it. It's just such a well-executed toy. Props to Lewin Resources!!
So strange. Mine was also from TF-Direct, and it's literally perfect. aka Flawless. and I don't usually say that about these sorts of toys. But I have been looking over mine obsessively for days. I just don't see anything wrong on mine at all.
Mine arrived from Show.Z Store missing a piece. I emailed them, no reply yet.
Got his transformerd to robot (after watching Ben’s review). Hanging out w G1 and MPP10. I don’t have MP10 (got into the collecting game late).
i like how uncomfortable OSmpp10 looks. nailed it.
Damn, I didn't even realize that was the oversize MP 10 in your photo. I'm staring at my MPP10 on the shelf right now, looking at your picture, and it's dawning on me how huge this figure is.
Ok, I promise this is the last picture I’ll post on this thread. I just can’t get over the size and weight of this guy. Here he is with MAS-02 Megatron.
Damn, all these pics and issues are making this wait completely stuck. Still no update on mine, just sitting in "accepted in china on 8/31" status. Weird thing is, if I use china tracking, it says delivered on 9/3?!? I'm hoping that means delivered to the plane or ship on its way to the US?
same thing happened to mine. mine said delivered on the China tracking but it had actually been returned to sender. I would contact with the seller so they can check for you they may have to re send it
This may have been addressed earlier in the thread, but any idea where all the bits in the little baggie are supposed to go? I imagine the blue circular ones are to fit in the screw holes on the leg, but I’m at a bit of a loss on the rest.
I don't think it's been addressed at all, actually. Most of those parts are battery covers -- the grey ones fit into the chest, and under the feet, and the blue one fits over the battery housing behind the head...
...or at least, it's supposed to. Mine doesn't fit worth a damn.
Still, given the other QC issues that have been reported in this thread, I'm lucky that's the only problem I encountered.
This is turning into bs. Says it left NY on the 11th. Doesn't take this long to get to Illinois
Size comparison time! Next to my one year old.
...and off topic a little, my boy facing off against Hulk at two months.
I emailed them. Gonna suck if it's lost, I highly doubt ShowZ has extra in stock for "lost in shipping" items. I won't be getting one for months!
They scale well together! Which one is your favorite?
