    Would you do it forrrr a Scooby snack? [​IMG]
    If the hand isn't lifted away from the base/forearm a little bit it will interfere with it and it can't curl inwards.

    You can see the wrist a bit here. It's just a small slice of a blue pen that coincidentally matched Prime's blue hue sanded down to match the matte finish of the hand.

    It's his own amazing custom, Bruderstator! The exclamation point isn't part of his name but it probably should be :D

    That thing is a turd. Stay away.
    Cheap plastic, cheap execution, feels like a bottle of shampoo, missing pieces, floppy, bad paint applications, broken out of the box.
    Wonder how Pangu and @AbbytheCat will handle this.

    Also what's that card? One of the stupid lucky shit?

    Well, this got exciting. Breakages are already reported every ten minutes. Hmm, I wonder how many more reports of breakages there might be in the coming weeks. :popcorn 

    I hope there will be some kind of fix to this issue. I so wanted this figure to be a solid release. :mad

    No fix is possible. They just upscaled that thing, but if you make it bigger you have to change the specs of critical pieces. Even if they send you replacement parts the problem will still be here, just waiting to break again.
    My advice is to stay away

    They want you to think it's for a gold Megatron, but the real lucky draw is for the one in every hundred Primes that don't have any qc issues.

    I mean, at that price we'd be fools to expect a Bandai SOC type of toy. I get it.

    The breaking is inexcusable though. What a POS.

    I'm curious as to the actual number of members that have a broken PP (Pangu Prime, obviously...).

    Can we start a poll or maybe people that are part of the broken arm club can Like this comment?

    I just don't see how $165 USD is "too good to be true". That's a shit ton of money and this is a ko, regardless if it's oversized. On top of that, it's pretty light and the company has done very little to make anything more solid after oversizing the design (i.e. joints, etc.).

    Can you blame them though? Pangu is clearly lying to them.

    It's still $165 USD though, not some fifty dollar ko. You would expect at that price it would at least be decent. Like the MP-57 Skyfire KO was $125. That wasn't perfect, but, clearly, significantly better than this in the quality department.

    Because where else have you seen 18” MP complexity figures that cost less than $200?

    I’m talking about the price being cheap relative to other comparable stuff, not that $150 isn’t a lot of money. It was somewhat cheap for how large it was, even by KO standards. And unsurprisingly it was for a reason.
