    How's the QC on this thing? What issues are people experiencing? Did anyone ever find a way to store the cannons while in bot mode?

    In all seriousness there’s nothing anyone has come up with yet, but there’s potential for a nice mod so that u can keep the guns in gun mode

    That singlehandedly fixes his look. It's remarkable.

    What about not having them in gun mode? Are they still able to be stored on Prime in bot mode? In addition, how's the QC?

    Yeah I can’t quite tell, or read the captions, what he did. Any help? Because that fixes my one gripe with this guy.

    Absolutely. Only thing I want fixed now are side to side hip ratchets, but idk if that’s possible. But besides that, NOW I’m kinda tempted...

    Seems like an easy solution. I used an exact cutter to remove the pegs on the feets of my ss38, this would be almost the same thing to do.

    The mod doesn't affect the transformation, so no worries.


    1)This is how the figure is supposed to be

    2)Use an exact cutter to remove this section in purple/how it should look after being removed

    3)Also cut this bit off, so it won't be obtrusive

    4)Fill the gap with something else, maybe a 3d printed plastic or anything.

    Nothing yet, sadly. However QC seems to be excellent, with only one out of all the primes posted here that had a very small issue with the piece that connects the swappable faces together. I suspect the screw was over tightened and not actually a problem with the plastic tho

    Someone should do this mod and then position the abs the way @Cheebs demonstrated. That will be the perfect look

    This really irks me as this turns out to be something that WJ could have done from the start but somehow didn’t. It really improves the figure so much and makes it almost perfect.

    WJ really dropped the ball here this time only because this figure is so so close to perfection and they somehow mess up on the way to the goal line with a series of really really weird design decisions.

    It really does make you wonder. He made some really extensive changes to other parts of the figure, but maybe he didn't know people cared about the chest gap?
