How did you get a replacement part?
I see a lot of folks dismissing your observations here but I'm not one of them. I've assembled and disassembled mine a few times and I certainly had noticed tolerance issues where some pegs were WAY too tight and some weren't tight enough. I totally believe that over time, with any slight aging or fatigue of the plastic, that these could be breakage points.
I don't get the impression that you're any kind of an idiot and you almost certainly know how to handle a figure. Could it be bad luck? Sure...we'd be fools to not at least heed your warning. The fact that your report is the first that anyone has noticed doesn't mean that you're not 100% right on that these are weak points.
Thanks for sharing your findings...I'm sorry that yours broke but you may have saved others from this grief as a result. This kind of community support is what makes this hobby great.
No problem, I will be honest after so many negative responses i was worried i did something wrong by reporting an issue on an almost 2 year old figure with already a major issue, need I remind people of the right ankle(scrapper) cracking when turned 3 clicks outwards? when Mixmaster can do 3 just fine?
From bbts where I got it, they sent me a new lower half of hook.
Just to add my experience to this, I bought the CW Devastator for my son for Xmas, by the end of Jan Hook had two faults, firstly the peg you also had issues with that holds his legs together and also the right knee joint snapped completely, so you are not the only one! (and i know kids aren't careful but i was the only one that ever combined/uncombined them and i was very careful as it always felt fragile)
I contacted Hasbro and they confirmed there is a fault but have no stock to ship a replacement - so if anyone has a spare Hook?????
So hasbro knows it is an issue,
I have just checked mine, all tabs and post seem fine but I did run into a problem with Bonecrusher, while transforming him into robot, the canopy on mine which was always tight but never was not able to be opened now won't open all the way, trying has caused it to crack and gave it a few stress marks, it has probably sat combined well over a year. I did not force it and still enough room to get head out but def watch for it.
The same issue just happened to me today.
So sorry to hear that happened to you, i whould be annoyed if one of my transformers broke to
same here. Though I haven’t messed with mine for a while. When I got him I Transformed him a few times with no problems.
I see some people here saying they havent had any issues with their copies, yet, they combined or manipulated them once and then put it on a shelf which is .....well, it makes me laught a little. The fact. Now, these figures are meant to be manipulated maybe even more than a regular action figure and is a shame that this particular figure is giving people a hard time after all this time.
Me, I never got this figure and if I can recall correctly, this was the time I got out of collecting regularly.
